  1. Years since last AFL/VFL Grand final win

    My grandfather managed it somehow (of course back then it was only 36 years). Kids are soft and footy should be sufferingly hard. That makes the demons the best because to support Melbourne is to choose suffering over joy.
  2. The Big Dance - Grand Final Day, 2017

    I'm happy for the tigers but I'm getting a bit sick of all these old Victorian clubs winning premierships at last while we continue to languish.
  3. 2017 Brownlow Medal

    When one team is dominated by stars and the other plays well because of a collective of good performances.
  4. Boys enjoying themselves in Bali

    As soon as Gawny said "I'm probably going to go for a run today" in his "I'm Shattered, We're All Shattered" video, I knew they didn't actually care all that much about being as good as they can be. "Probably going for a run" is something I do as a halfway fit IT student. A professional footy player should be a little more committed than that.
  5. AFL Finals Week 3 - Prelims

    We're going to see a lot of that from our boys next year. I was hoping to get a lot of it out of the way this year but alas not…
  6. 2017 Player Reviews: # 7 Jack Viney

    I think we all know now that this bloke is our most important player. It would be just our luck if he can't properly recover from his injury. All the best Jack.
  7. AFL Finals - Week 2

    lol Paddy Dangerfield is a one-man band. First 1-player team in history to win the flag?
  8. AFL Finals - Week 1

    My Port Adelaide supporting cousin is over to visit. I'm lucky she has her priorities in order. She's only minorly devastated. I'd be going mental if it were me.
  9. AFL Finals - Week 1

    I hate WCE but they're a proud footy club.
  10. AFL Finals - Week 1

    Adelaide is dead to me this finals series. In fact now that I think about it, footy is pretty much dead to me for the rest of this year.
  11. 2017 Post Mortem

    I was on board until he said "I'm probably gonna go for a run today v I'm no pro sportsman, but even I go for a run every day.
  12. All-Australian Squad

    Lucky they'll never play a game.
  13. Sledging Fail

    I think every different player had a different mindset, and that's what cost us. Goodwin said "We didn't talk about finals." Well we should have; especially with such a young team. People need to talk about what matters, and finals matters to us. If we pretended Round 23 was just like any other, we were fools. 17 people have coached the Melbourne Football Club since Norm Smith. None have won the flag. All have thought that history means nothing. We must embrace our history. Every chance to smash a hoodoo, we should let our players know about it. And then we'll smash it. Embrace the failure. Embrace the history. Embrace the opportunity for redemption. And then embrace the success.
  14. Melbourne's Communication and Online

    I'll mail you mine. Do you want my leftover Chinese food too? It'd be easy to send in the same putrid pile of junkmail.
  15. Melbourne's Communication and Online

    I was going to burn mine but got convinced to keep it by someone I live with who just doesn't get it.
