In 2021, Melbourne Football Club wrote their own fairytale and broke a 57-year premiership drought. Australian rules football's oldest club climbed the mountain and sent their long-suffering supporters into total delirium.
With the defensive brilliance of Jake Lever, Steven May and Christian Salem, as well as an elite midfield led by Max Gawn, Christian Petracca and Clayton Oliver, the Demons looked to be the best team in it all season. They won their 3 finals by more than 200 points combined in an emphatic display of total dominance.

Melbourne Demons history
Melbourne were the latest in a recent line of magical AFL fairytales when they charged to the 2021 premiership.
Names such as Ron Barassi, Robert Flower, Norm Smith and Jim Stynes once donned the Demons strip and are among the players on their team of the century. They are now joined in immortality by Max Gawn, Clayton Oliver and Christian Petracca.
Since losing the grand final to Essendon in 2000, Melbourne have reached the finals just 6 times in 21 seasons and had 7 different coaches. But all of that unrest is a thing of the past because the AFL's sleeping giant is now dominant again.
