Demon (2/10)



  1. It was fantastic march ! An hour of fun and wonderful spirit . Was filmed by Channel 7 . The bag pipes playing our song half way through was only one highlight . Thanks to the young fella blowing the pipes . There were hundreds marching of all ages . The picture of the car was at the start . The numbers more than doubled as others joined in . Lots of Doggies joined but they were all Dee supporters and in the right colours . Congratulations to the man in the Red suit and his partner in the red and blue tutu for organising it . Well worth the $100 the suit cost . Fitted well to . Lots of horns honking showed that Malvern is a Red and Blue Ribbon suburb . Go Dees !
  2. Saw the Dees win the reserves GF in 1970 . I can't remember the Under 19 GF in 1971 . Maybe had not arrived at the ground early enough . My dad would get there very early to get his usual set in the smokers stand and would reserve my seat in the ladies area .
  3. I know both teams will be out to intimidate their opponents today . It is football and a GF . Win at all costs .Not many agree with me that Michael Longs career was tarnished by trying to kill Simmonds in 2000 . Other than MFC supporters who remembers Wallis . Both coaching groups would have spent 2 weeks trying to work out who to target , its their job . I would always target the captain when I played . Focus on the leaders and their weak links . It works in war and today is war . Both teams will be expecting it .The team that will win will be looking forward to it more than the other . Both teams will not cross the line imo . They will intimidate buy attacking the ball first and applying pressure second . Both teams will stick up for their mates . Both teams should be operating right at the line . As we saw in 2000 the statement needs to be made right from the outset . I believe the Dees will win because our spirit and team culture is superior .
  4. A MFC player won the Brownlow . A great omen !!!!! This may have been said .
  5. I have already mentioned on a post about the disadvantage Covid has done to the Dees . No worry re the curse as the spirit in the team can not be broken . Did you see the spirit when Thomo had his first run this week . Whatever happens is ok with me . Where were the Olympics help when the Dees last won a premiership ?
  6. I heard Gill McLaughlin speak on this issue about six years ago . It will NEVER happen if he has a say in it ( unless he has done a 180 degree turn since ) .
  7. So disappointed that the Dees have not had the benefit of playing with crowds at the G . As the season comes to it's climax without Covid our crowds would have been building . When finals start non Dee supporters would be jumping on our band wagon as we are the under dog with regard to Premiership success . Crowd support is a big advantage ! I saw Adelaide supporters help win a GF against the Saints . Our supporters screaming at the umpires when we recently played the Dogs would have evened up the free kick count . 100k at the G with 80k supporting the Dees would give our players a huge boost and ensure the umpires are fair . Disappointed I may not be there to see the Dees win a flag that I have dreamt about for 61 years . I still will be ecstatic if they win one if I am there or not .
  8. I looked up the Royal and laughed when the website came up .
  9. Sorry Doug . I am too stupid to understand your question .
  10. I would drop the Tigers ( said after 2nd round they would be lucky to make the 8 ) and put in Brisbane . Hoping Lions also tire at season .
  11. One Flag and I am cured of MFCSS . The MFC army IS mustering after a long furlough . The members was packed . As the season goes on more will join and other teams supporters will jump on for the finals . We are 4 games ahead of Richmond in 8th . Pinching myself so often to make sure I am not dreaming that I am red and blue on the outside .
  12. Also loved our chasing and yelled ball a lot and will check the stats .
  13. Was at the game and my BOG went to May . Have not looked at the stats or read any of the above yet . A good team effort and we could have won by 10 goals . Out numbered them all over the ground all day and we looked strong and much harder at the ball . Kosi signalling touched BEFORE the umpires was so classy ( can the umpires go on his call ( like Gilly walking ) ) and his goal so much fun to watch . The Bell did not toll before the game ! I missed my AC/DC !
  14. A wonderful act of sportsmanship !!!!!!!!! He signalled touched BEFORE the goal umpire and third umpire made their call . Can they go on his call ? Not like Gilly were he can walk before an umpiring decision . I also saw him TRY and help the two players up but believe one was a Dee . The two players were much bigger than him and I don't think he helped much . I had a good laugh and loved it . He has Eddie Betts personality , Davey's tackling ,the Wiz's marking and the magic of Rioli . Was right behind the goal Gonzo and it was a Bloody ripper . Love yelling Weeeeds ( was in the outer ) but no Ringing of the Bell before the game . Missed my AC/DC !
  15. How insightful Colin . I did ask the question and received no answer . Nearly 800 views of the question and no answer?. But the Bell has sadly ENDED ! I REALLY missed my AC/DC ! Very disappointed . Please call Senor Ding Dong ! Took some of the gloss of the win imo .
