    Our supporter stereotype

    I drink VB. Dress like a slob. Work a manual job. Swear every second word enough to make a sailor blush. All that and more. I'm one of the biggest yobbos you'll ever meet. But I'm still the better man for being an MFC supporter and member.

    Finals Week 2 - Non MFC Game

    The thought of Richmond winning another flag does the same to me.

    Finals Week 2 - Non MFC Game

    Don't mind that result. GWS would have been smashed by Richmond. I can at least see Collingwood hitting as hard as they get.

    GAMEDAY - Semi Final

    So I'm starting to pace. Nervous and confident at the same time. I hate those bastards. I'd be happy just ending their dream even if we don't get any further.

    Is Goodwin the right guy....

    We did it when we had the cattle, way back when. We've done it for 20 odd years. I like the 'build it and they shall come' message. Early days, but I'm liking his work right now.

    Bernie Vince Retires

    Whatever happens now and in the future, he is one of the guys that we should always look back on as those that dragged us out of the mud. Thanks Bernie. You did us proud.

    Is Goodwin the right guy....

    Growing into the job. Has stopped his 'gotcha!' tactical moves that were found out and beaten by better, more experienced coaches. I do like his contant mantra about how we need to play our brand. For too long I've seen us try and re-invent our style based on who won last year, whereas he just keeps saying we will play our style, and if we do it properly then he has faith it will beat any team on the day. Of course I want to see a flag, but I won't be too fussed if this year is a learning year so that the style we play becomes the trend setter next year.

    The Nathan Freeman Thread

    Worth a rookie pick - may come good... may drop off the earth, but as a flip of the coin I think it is worth it.

    Why no theme for round 23?

    I'm all in favour of sacrificing a virgin before a game to appease the football gods, but it's 2018. It's not like there are any left.

    I cried. 12 years of hell. Of being the butt of jokes. Of being pitied and laughed at all at once. Yeah, I cried. What happens next will either be [censored] or gold, but, for the first time in a long time they didn't break my heart when something that mattered was on the line.

    What is the point?

    I don't usually post after a loss because I don't want to say something I'll regret (not a hard and fast rule though) but I thought your post deserved a response, and I'll try to do it with kindness, because I do hear you. I watched Fitzroy destroy us by 190 pts. I watched us get heartbroken in 87 then destroyed in 88. I saw Essendon come back from (I think) 48 pts when we had won the first 5 games of the year. I watched craps sides (St Kilda aside) hold up the cup. I've seen us with talent to burn, and then burn that talent. I've seen more false dawns than you've had breakfasts. I was 5 years old before I saw our first win, and that was going to the G to watch them maybe 8-10 times a year. I've been burnt, scolded, chopped up, [censored] up, cut, smashed, stabbed, humiliated, and had my heart broken a million times by this club. But I keep coming back. Why do I do that? Because I was born with red and blue blood pumping through my veins into my MFC heart. I was Checker telling the boys to play like Demons. I was Barassi holding up yet another cup. I was Big Jim running over the mark. I was Smith at the Gabba. I was Yze stealing the game from Adelaide... Schwartz doing another knee... Flower sublimely taking on 3 opponents and making them look stupid... Gawn missing a sealer... Simmonds being pole-axed.... Froggy leaving his man to win a GF. I am all those things, and more. Because I am Melbourne. That's why I come back again and again. Because I know no other way, and would rather be in agony supporting my side when they finish last than support any other side that won the flag. I have no choice, but even if I did I'd still be here. Because I have faith. Faith that one day all of this will be repaid in spades.

    GAMEDAY - Round 21

    What the [censored]????????????? Can I once... just once... see my club stand up when it matters. Once? Is that too hard to ask?

    Round 21 Non MFC Games

    That's the crux and always has been. [censored] the rest. We are either good enough or we are not.
