Image Coming off the simultaneous triumph and tragedy of making the Grand Final in 1988 only to be thrashed by Hawthorn, the Demons adopted a new logo and set their sights on going one better in 1989.

With up to 18 injured players at any given time late in the year the Demons scraped into the finals with one win in their last six games. Such was the even nature of their challengers they may still have snuck a double chance had they not lost to lowly St. Kilda in the second last round. As it was they became one of a handful of teams to qualify for the finals with a percentage of under a hundred.

The reigning premiers were dispatched in the first week of the finals before Geelong proved a sterner test in the second and Melbourne's season was over.

Pre-Season practice matches against Geelong in Colac and Carlton at Princes Park were cancelled as the Demons progressed through the Panasonic Cup.
