  1. Mmmm, a vulnerable post. My father died of MND 5 years ago last Thursday, just as I became a father (and he had his first grandchild), and had a relationship with Neale, through Daniher's Drive . Previously because of my unwillingess to attend to the G for The Big Freeze, I've headed to Alice to honour the old bloke and watch a match live around the date of his death. In a somewhat hilarious course of fate, it's taken me around 5 years to have the courage to head to the 'G' to celebrate the life of my father, and honour the work that Neale and the entire community that facilita

  2. Thanks to all demonlanders for your well wishes today. The boys definitely did it for my mom tonight and I am very grateful. Well done boys. What a win and great noise from the small crowd. GI DEES.

  5. Well for me personally today started horribly, my mum passed away. Let hope the Dees do the right that thing and win in her memory. Nice memory just Monday gone I told her that the Dees were on the top of the ladder and she said “what” the surprise on her face was priceless. Even with her memory loss she still new who the Dees were. Never mind she forgot who the hell I was ha ha Go Dees.

  7. Listen up Dees fans. There will be ups and downs, but don’t EVER write this team off. We are a very good football team. Nobody wants us to win. Commentators and journalists want to maintain the narrative about our football club - soft, shaky, lazy. But we aren’t any of those things. We are hard and fast. Stick fat, stick together, and never ever doubt this current group. Go Dees.

  12. Awesome turn out at the game tonight. Considering the Melbourne based supporters couldn’t fly up I thought I’d be lucky to be there with 500 other mad Dees. How wrong I was. Can’t tell you how weird but wonderful it was to be there cheering the “Mel-bourne” chant with my kids with thousands of other Demon fans in Sydney. Not to mention giving them a team we can finally trust and be proud of! They are only young and just expect Melbourne to always win which I think is pretty funny given my 30 years of following them. The highlight of the game live had to be the chains of han

  13. Tom McDonald's conduct after receiving that elbow to the jaw from Dane Zorko was exemplary. He pushed back and Zorko staged a fall. Macca then leaned over the prostate Zorko and told him the time of day. Effen AWESOME. After that the umpire awarded Macca the free kick and reported Zorko. MACCA...UNCOMPROMISING...TOUGH...ALL CLASS. Well done Tom McDonald!

  14. I just love my footy club. Finally, I can say it with pride and real belief. Dad, I hope we can do it for you. If we do, I'll make sure the fridge is stocked with Abbotsford lager. By the way, can you please have a word with the big fella up there, to make sure he smiles upon us for the rest of the year and tell him to have a word to Norm and let him know it is ok to let go of the curse..... finally

  16. MFCSS is still alive and well. Based on the evidence on the first half of the season I don't think we should be losing faith in the boys. Here are some handpicked selection of the worst. "Can we do "changes next week" already?" "We're not winning this. Brisbane is leagues ahead of the rest of the league atm." "Sportsbet paying 3.50 on lions 40+" "We just have too many ordinary footballers. No way we are winning a flag this year. Typical Melbourne, pump up your tyres, then deflate you when the crunch comes. So disappointing." "Time to give pickett a rest , keeps going

  18. Let me just say a big congratulations to Adelaide, who were really well coached tonight. I thought they put in massive amount of pressure and it resulted in simple little turnovers that proved costly. 2nd point, stop blaming the umpires. They did not cost us the game at all. The fact we were in a position late in the game that we needed to rely on a deliberate rule is imo is very concerning. We 16 points up with 3 minutes to go. We lost because we put ourselves in that position to lose. I'm putting the absolute heat on our senior players tonight. Some of the efforts and performance f

  20. I'm speechless.. To the point of tears..this is what it's like to support a genuine top team of the competition. Simon Goodwin you are the man. The boys run through walls for you and you deserve every ounce of credit coming your way. Went through a family separation and all the talk was he was next on the chopping block. Kudos Mr Goodwin.

  21. Taking my son to his first dees game tomorrow. He is 5. We live in Adelaide and the supporters are impossible. Crows supporters I've given up on because they literally have no idea about the game. Hopefully not too much abuse for me and my lad tomorrow. If he lasts a half, I'll consider it a success!

  22. I was going to suggest bringing Melksham for Chandler in but was legit afraid of the Demonland lynch mob. There’s absolutely no doubt in my mind Melksham would have offered a lot more than Chandler on the weekend. Didn’t see the Brown change coming though, but I’m pleasantly surprised. Thought they’d prefer him over Weideman, but I’m stoked to see the young bloke get another look at it. Can’t wait for this game now. Both changes make the side stronger.

  25. Excellent work. I reckon I can name the owners of some of those ‘nuggets’... And can I just add that what a disgrace some of you were about the faithful up north - they rocked up and brought a noise that was worth 5 times their numbers. Well done to the Northern states fans - you were great.

  28. I just had a lengthy chat to one of our assistant coaches this morning. I asked him about the rumours of a few players being sore and potentially missing on Monday. But Jake Lever (He acknowledged Jake's ankle was sore) and Christian Salem (groin) both trained strongly and should play. The boys fly up tomorrow, have a Captain’s Run on the SCG and come home Tuesday. They then have 4 days off before the Bye. We spoke about the small forwards as this bloke looks after them. He’s really excited about Kade Chandler who kicked 5 goals in a little scratch matc

  30. Great win! I’ll really enjoy the office banter on Monday! my best mate (kiwi - rugby mad) has been watching games with me of late, at half time he asked if we were a decent chance, I said yes we finish games strong and we cannot play any worse. He loaded up on the Dee’s under 2 conditions from me 1) he buys 1 x memberships 2) buys a jersey (would be 4xl) if we win. We shook on it, ladies and gentlemen we have our newest member haha!

  35. A great kid who's been playing for the bushies and Albury Tigers alongside our very own Daniel Cross and Jeff Garlett. An intercept defender who reads the play extremely well. The fact he's played against men puts him in the frame at some stage this year.

  37. From the Bulldog Bigfooty. Sounds like a reasonable doggie: Melbourne were absolutely first rate. That was a benchmark win and kudos to them. We aren’t that far away though and I’d really love to see us go round 2 against them with Dunkley and Treloar back in the team. They might still roll us though. Reminded me of Geelong at their best. Hard and skilled and Gawn is a deadset superhero.

  41. That was enormous. We’ve just beaten the two best sides, neither match at our home ground. We held a high scoring side to 20 scoring shots and 75 points. We needed a lift at half time, so we lifted. We backed our system in, we turned the tide, and then we scored heavily. You cannot be anything other than impressed by that.

  42. Just like when the Lions had a bad decision against the Cats, the Dees must ask for a “Please explain from the umpiring director “. Example, Murray from the Crows handballs 20 metres backwards out of bounds OOB in the last 20 seconds to go. Right next to the point post in our forward line. Not another crows player near it. My kids and I were absolutely screaming. It was the most obvious OOB all year. WTF. That’s what the rule was for. It wasn’t why we lost. You can diagnose many small incidents and the players must all be accountable. But the umps must be questioned. T

  46. Prologue: Astounded at the start of the game to have to line up to get in onaccounta only 1 Turnstile open. Then when I got close to check in Found out I could have just walked in through the seething throng of Swanettes ( Rememember them?) and walked in through the "Members only" Gate DOH! Reasonable crowd today, probably 50/50 Dees/Casey and Swans faithful. Beautiful day for footy out at Casey, no breeze to speak of and a relaxed almost gentile and pastoral elegance permeated the scenescape which featured Dogs of all kinds, Kids playing with footies, Parents sitting on Picnic
