  1. Big thing I noticed tonight was the amount of scrub kicks and times caught holding the ball we did, speaks of heavy legs from last weeks run fest. Hopefully look a heck of a lot better next game after some solid recovery work. PS for anyone that was there, my daughter was the girl on the field at three quarter time in the 3 shots on goal thing they did for BCNA with the 3 kids. She got her third one through and was super happy about the cheer the crowd gave her. Big thank you if that was you cheering, you made her night!!! 🙏😊❤️💙

  3. Plane lands at 11am on Wednesday, straight to the accomodation and the very slow pub crawl will start from docklands into the MCG, 2 x Dee’s supporter and 2 x band wagon supporters from QLD coming down for the festivities!. Cannot wait for the game, scared how much merchandise I’ll buy before the game…….

  4. I’ve watched it countless times already, except I skip the first two and a half minutes each time. Don’t need reminding of those times ever, let alone on a (multiple-) daily basis. The vision I can’t bear to watch is the “fans” hanging over the race spewing bile and hatred at the players. What a travesty. I can’t even imagine being that incensed by anyone let alone my beloved Dees. Disappointed, heartbroken, disillusioned… sure. A little [censored] off, even. But not to that revolting point.

  5. On a few occasions the player agent said that Melbourne gave the best presentation they’ve ever seen, amazing to hear. On Jackson, his name was only mentioned because Cerra was keen on Melbourne however his agent said Fremantle would probably want Jackson, and that’s not going to happen. It was Cerra’s agent who brought up Jackson by name, no one else. Let’s not look for something that isn’t there to create drama when it’s not required.

  6. Great video. I loved seeing the snippet of Goodwin's half time address. Would love to see more of it (and the QT and 3QT addresses, and indeed anything else from behind the scenes).

  9. Sheesh people around you must get frustrated with you. Your own post is right there in black and white and you're trying to deny it. Trying to be pedantic about individual words is ridiculous. You go back and read your own post. You take what an Agent said and turn it into something it wasn't. I've been on here for a long time and you're now only the second person I've put on Ignore.

  13. Mate you've written a post that conveys that an Agent on the doco said something that creates a worry the Club were prepared to trade Jackson. Whereas the Agent on the doco's express words were that Melbourne were not prepared to trade Jackson. A lot of people on here won't have access to that show and you are inventing a damaging falsehood you have taken the time to communicate to them. I call that dangerous. For some reason I had rated you as reliable. Won't be doing that anymore.

  14. Lord Nev, paraphrasing can lead down rabbit holes that aren't there. D'Orazio said after our presentation. "I got off the Zoom call and Adam and I were chatting and he thought I really want to go to Melbourne." Later they go back to the Cerra situation and D'Orazio says "The main reason he won't pick Melbourne is they won't be able to facilitate a deal." Connors says "Won't trade Luke Jackson." and he says "No. And to their credit their presentation is the best I've ever seen.....They focused on Cez and said why they think they're good and why they think they'll make you great and went through Petracca and Oliver and how they were just good and suddenly they are top 3 players of the Comp." There's nothing obscure there and that's word for word.

  16. Obviously any selection is only a guess at this time of year ...... but to leave Max out ..... stupidity. I reckon the practice game he played against Carlton was off the the planet and Brownlow votes worthy. Not a bad start to the season.

  17. So frustrating watching our women try to beat one more opponent before kicking. Far too often they get caught or the kick is smothered. Lucky to get the win in the end.

  18. In a strange way I don't want the 2022 to start. I like being the reigning premiers. Yes I hope we go back to back but it's almost like I don't want other teams to take attention away from us. I'm already sick of hearing about DeGoey and Essendon when I watch the news. Maybe I'm a bit nervous about what will happen this season and Wednesday night.

  19. Come on Lord Nev. Are you suggesting your comments aren't saying you were a tiny bit worried we were offering up Jackson for trade? Irrelevant if you didn't say he was going. The actual words from D'Orazio should have left no room for you to be a tiny bit worried about Melbourne offering up Jackson at all. Frankly it's dangerous to suggest that.

  20. I doubt it would have anything to do with Jackson. Melbourne has shown they can wheel and deal with picks at the trade table, they probably backed themselves to bundle picks, trade up etc to get a top 10 pick for him.

  23. Mithen needs to have Mark Williams in her ear - she could be something special if she made better decisions and executed her short kicks better. Libby had a mare in her 50th. Just looked in her head all night. Maddie Gay and Colvin bailed out the backs a bunch. That game was probably good for them going into the prelim.

  24. I really really hope we get a great crowd. Just to witness the unfurling of the flag will give me goosebumps because we haven't been through it. I hope we are loud and when our premiership boys run out they hear the biggest cheer for them. I do not want to hear from media people or read oh melbourne supporters didn't show up. I'm sick of hearing that over the years. I reckon the members will be pretty full and be rocking and I hope we have a nice easy win.

  25. Terrible performance and pretty difficult to argue that the better team won. Perhaps the trip to Perth didn't help but, with so much at stake, we looked incredibly half hearted, indecisive and overwhelmed. Hopefully they can take the week off to rest up, refocus and bring a much better performance in the preliminary final.

  26. If Carlton win tonight, it's 4 in a row for them. They're one of the form teams in the comp, and I'm glad the girls were able to get the win, even if it wasn't the big win we all hoped for to give us the best chance.

  27. Totally agree about Kossie. What I love about that piece of play is how instinctive and quick it is – absolutely natural football understanding.

  28. The other moment involving May that I've heard quoted (actually in the other Fox doco) is apparently in the middle of the BANG, BANG, BANG goal scoring tsunami, Steve May is saying to the mid feild "Ok, let's shut it down and make sure they don't score again before three quarter time". Oliver recalls that he turned to Trac and they were both like 'NAHHH, let's keep pushing'. Love the bulls we have at the club all over the field that complement each other. The intense defensive mindset of Lever, May & Co down back lets guys like Clarry and Trac do their thing and go hard offensively when it's on.

  29. As part of my podcast's (Lace Out) Season Previews for 2022,, I was pumped to chat to Peter Molan, from the awesome Deewatch Podcast about our admiration of the Demons, and if Melbourne can be back-to-back premiers? Who will stop the Dees? Listen to find out who... Check out the preview: https://lace-out.captivate.fm/listen It would be great to hear your feedback on the episode as it was about OUR CLUB so a bit of extra love was put into it!

  30. 6 months after the big day and watching momentum gave me goosebumps. Unbelievable final series and GF just fantastic, we had to wait 57 years, but made it worth the wait. Would be incredible to be at G and watch them go back-back in 2022! The goals in the third were just electric, Fritsch, Fritsch, BBB, wait a few minutes Brayshaw amazing courage, then Trac, Sparrow & Clarry, awesome! Go Demons!

  32. No Zanker hurts. Damn good thing we recruited Liv Purcell and she's coming good from the ACL to minimise this. We need a solid win here for shot at top spot and for the saints to take it right up to Adelaide (knocking them off wod be even handier)

  33. On a different note, for those who thought our deal for Jessie Hogan was a dud. Freo let Cerra go for pick 6 and a future third rounder. He had no on or off field baggage and is on his way to being an absolute gun. We got pick 6 and 23 for Hogan who was gone in what two years without hardly playing a game. That's not a comment on Hogan who I wish the best, just a comment on the trades. On another side note. Scully turned into the pick we used to get Hogan who turned into May Kolodjashnij and Sparrow. Thank you Tom. Where is he now?

  38. Interesting that Jack was the only player to remonstrate with Daniels for flipping Max over the boundary line. Again, its the little things that make big moments. Anyone else get the feeling that Petracca was about to refer to Daniels as a 'midget' but hesitated long enough to say a '5'6" player' instead.

  47. I know right? Recently I was at my son’s share-house and his housemate asked me what was the happiest day of my life. I said the 25th of Sept 2021 and explained why (these hipster [censored] aren’t into footy so didn’t know why). He says, “but you’ve got three kids, shouldn’t that day be the FOURTH happiest day of your life?” I said, “Uhm…No.” He turns to my son and says, “dude, how does this make you and your brothers feel? Like you’re second-rate?” My son says, “nah man, we count ourselves lucky to be second on her list. And that’s only coz she lists her football team as a single entity. If she were to individually name each player and the coaching staff we’d be lucky to scrape into her top 50.” 😆
