The NFL has a new rival after prime minister stunned Melbourne Demons at home in a massive frenzy.
The Fremantle Dockers had the biggest scalpel in the AFL, taking a massive 38-point win over the Melbourne Demons at the MCG.
A win of 14.10 (94) to 7.14 (56) officially ends the Demons’ 17-game streak that includes the 2021 flag and solidifies the Dockers in the top four.

The Demons were on their eighth-longest winning streak ever at 17 games, but the Dockers escaped to a famous victory.
It was an incredible performance after a low-scoring first quarter and kicked the Devils with a 25-point lead in the first half.
But the second half was all for Dockers as eight goals in the third quarter netted a stunning win.
Now some will frame it as the loss the Devils need if the side can bounce back, but it’s a massive victory for Fremantle.
Six years after knocking out the finals, the Dockers will now be seen as true contenders having achieved what many believe will be an impossible feat in 2022.
Even better for Dockers, Nat Fyfe is set to return next week.
It was a massive win for the Brayshaw House as Andrew finally defeated Angus, with the victorious star saying, “I’m sure my mum has a half Melbourne and half Freo scarf. So I wore that today. It’s the first time I’ve defeated Angus. He’s driving me home tonight for that.” I’ll definitely rub it off.”
The result stunned the AFL community.
Radio 6ix’s Ian Blakely tweeted: “OMFG. Just played #AFLDeesFreo. Awesome. Well done boys.”
Andrew McCormack of 7 News added: “The Freo hymn reverberates around MCG. Their only home and away game is in the ‘G’ in 2022. I feel they might be back there sometime in September.”
Comedian Rove McManus wrote: “Ship workers up front! Actual WT F???”
“I’m going to tell you now, Fremantle Dockers are going to beat Melbourne, and they’re going to end the streak,” former West Coast star Will Schofield said in his podcast on Back Chat.
“Hope we all are paying attention on Thursday,” he tweeted.
