One of the guys at my cricket club is a staunch Melbourne fan, hates the Eagles with a burning passion because he’s a WA boy who supports an interstate club so understandably gets sick of the West Coast and Freo show in the WA media.The (over)confidence the Demons win at Optus in 2018 gave them and the Vic media leading into the PF just made the way we belted them all the sweeter
The loss in the H&A was well worth the payoff in the prelim
A few of us (him included) went to that H&A game, he was the only Melbourne fan amongst 5 or 6 Eagles fans. He was understandably chirpy after the result and did not stop. Once it was revealed we would meet again in the Prelim, he got even chirpier, saying he couldn’t wait to watch history repeat and booking his grand final flights, I’m sure you can imagine. The cricket group message and cricket training sessions were just non stop chat about how good the Dees were and how easily they’d roll us and walk into a GF.
By half time of the prelim he’d disappeared off every form of social media and funnily enough missed training that week.
