  1. Collingwood V Melbourne Round 22. 1976

    I was there as an 11 year old with my Dad, a mad Melbourne supporter who sadly died the following year. Somehow he managed to get tickets to the stand behind the goals at the railway end (Sherrin Stand?). I'm pretty sure we were the only Melbourne supporters in that whole stand and my Dad gave me strict instructions to barrack quietly! Its all a bit hazy now but I remember Laurie Fowler, a fearless defender, getting KO'd and Henry Coles playing a blinder. We waited to hear the result of the Dogs game and like others I clearly remember the Collingwood members abuse once we heard Melbourne hadn't made the finals.
  2. Jack Watts (again)

    As expected VFL have thrown out Watt's charge.
  3. Umpiring of MFC games very questionable

    So I'm guessing your a comedian
  4. Umpiring of MFC games very questionable

    Your self diagnoses is spot on, if you're only half series I suggest you seek help quickly
  5. Umpiring of MFC games very questionable

    Let me put in language you might (?) understand, who were they conspiring with?
  6. Umpiring of MFC games very questionable

    Don't see conspiracies in either of those. One was a crime and they got caught and the other a government sponsored scientific development that ended a war. I'm sure you'd find a thread against the umpires on most club supporter sites. They're just incompetent, clearly not helped by HO constantly changing the rules and interpretations.
  7. Hand in your membership

    There's a bloke who's been sitting in N12 on 2nd level of Southern Stand for the last decade who has every game and all game (this is no exaggeration) bagged any Melbourne player who's made a mistake. He does this by shouting his abuse, obviously getting his rocks off hearing his own voice above everyone else. It's got a bit heated a few times when those sitting around this idiot often tell him to shut up. Why would you bother going to the footy when all you do is whinge and abuse the team your supposedly barracking for? Today his abuse was mostly targeted at Tyson, Stretch and Gartlett. He often questions players courage, but I bet the soft [censored] never put his head over a ping pong ball let alone a footy. Anyone else in N12 having the pleasure of listening to this idiot's abuse every home game?
  8. The Cam Pedersen Appreciation Thread

    Would be interesting to.see today's centre clearances stats for Max v's when Pedo was in ruck. Gut feel says we won more when Pedo's in ruck.
  9. Umpiring of MFC games very questionable

    You blokes are kidding yourself. They may be incompetent, but there's no umpiring conspiracy against any team. Conspiracy believers are nut jobs. Name one that has ever been proven true.
  10. The Cam Pedersen Appreciation Thread

    Another great game from Pedo. Unusually was a bit inaccurate in front of goal, but still miles ahead of Weid and Watts.
  11. The Weed

    Agree with others that he's miles from being AFL ready and has to be a question as to whether he'll ever make it. Instead of destroying what ever confidence he still has, put him back to VFL, bring Frost back and send Tom Mc forward.
  12. Gus Brayshaw

    Great first half by Gus. Strong marks, smooth running and fearless as ever. He's a true footballer. Fingers crossed his luck has changed.
  13. New Mascot Flash

    Davey retired, can't play forever.

    Might have already been mentioned but in Ch 7 after the game interview with Clarry, when told he had the most handballs ever at this stage of the season he responded with a smile he prefers hand balling to kicking, which I guess is pretty obvious, but I think it's something the coaches need to look at. Numerous times his quick hands put the reciever under enormous pressure and we either cough it up or have to get the ball back from a stoppage. He's an above average kick and think he could be even more damaging if he kicked it more often.
  15. Round 14 Non MFC games

    Double standards of the AFL re jumper clashes on display again. Carlton & Richmond both 'dark' colour jumpers and no one has any issues or complaints. should apply this standard to all.
