  1. In those days there was a massive banner affixed to the exterior edge of the ‘outer’ stand , now called the Southern Stand , and in the vivid colours of red and navy blue it read:


    Then,  from recollection ,there were some words about how the MCG was ours❤️

    It was a huge and imposing banner that adorned OUR ground and we were proud and unforgiving landlords💪

    Scary putting a face to the name after all these years. OMG. 

    Sorry to disappoint you.. that’s what a lifetime of AFL suffering does to you, but the photo that appeared in the paper was a little more complimentary , and I AM 65

    Great pic but scuzzi overseas so no papers, what was the article about?

    Just about my lifelong struggle following actively since 1965 and how my kids have named various pets after former players

    What stood out to me is that joeboy has somehow found time to watch the replay three times since Sunday.  Who has the time to do that?  I've barely had time to watch the highlights.


    Wow, I’m glad there are mods and rules in place to control such personal vindictiveness

    I won't write what I really want to in response to your post so I will just say you must be a very silly boy. I doubt you are a demons supporter from memory I recall similar posts in the past.

    Yep, and that’s why I’ve submitted my 3 word analyses every week for 5 years🙄

    I just don’t understand why a Melbourne supporter would go so far out of their way to attempt to rain on our own parade with this first level rubbish.

    Have you woken up in a bad mood?

    Pretty stupid response by you

  10. I’ve watched the replay 3 times and still can’t comprehend how we were awarded frees, or at least not penalized for many blatant errors, despite the howls of abuse throughout the game from an overwhelmingly anti Melbourne crowd.

    The non payment of a free kick against O.Mac ,when he took on the tackler by dropping his head into an oncoming chest, was just one of  many mind boggling decisions surprisingly in our favour.

    In my conspiracy theory, the AFL contrived a feel good story ending
