|Post subject: The commentating at Demons Vs Dockers||
|was absolutely shocking.
Fremantle was a player down before quarter time. They were 2 players down before half time.
The Demons won by 14 points as Freo ran out of legs.
But somehow the commentators believe this was season defying, the finals are still within reach and that this Melbourne team, with so much heart, with so much pride, with so much passion and skill and belief, with the awesome playing list and the coaching staff and the will to do it all will cause some big damage late in the year.
I mean with a fightback like that, it must have been the game of the century. They sure showed Hogan! They were even 17 points down at one point. wow. Thats almost three whole goals. What a team effort. The crowd was a whopping 20,211. It must have been electrifying to be there. I know at least 4 Melbourne fans that got the score update on their phones later that night.
They've now gone from 16th on the ladder to 16th on the ladder and are now a whole game in front of the Suns.
Paul Roos, Gerard Healy and Dwayne Russell; just thank you so much. You're three special people.
A Goal Saved Is 2 Goals Earned!
