    Our supporter stereotype

    Ian Cover and Champs (Coodabeens, ABC radio) have got some gripe with Melbourne, they cannot save themselves from making snide remarks. Cover was shocking on Saturday morning, don't know what his issue is. Fortunately they have a young guy on there now, "Andy" who remarked to Cover that they (Melbourne supporters) wouldn't be driving Range Rovers, they would be driving Teslas....

    1964 memories- calling our older supporters

    Too young, and living in the country. But we had just bought a TV and ABC 2 scrolled the football and racing updates and on some kind of typed rolling sheet. The score updates showed the lead fluctuating until, "final score... etc with Melbourne winning. a few years ago i purchased from ABC archives the radio commentary of the game ($70) and then mixed it with the rothmans video and grainy tv footage to provide some sense of the last few minutes. in a scrappy game, amazing how barassi, townsend, and bourke combined to give Mann a shot at goals from directly in front (which he missed). amazingly, the kick-out was a very markable drop-kick which Brian Dixon duly marked. Ron Barassi, unable to mark seems to bring the ball to ground - in front of Crompton - who then purposely slots it through. the radio commentary later tells how Barry Bourke later took a telling mark in the last line of defence to repel Coillingwood. the footage shows how collingwood COULD have been paid one or more free kicks in the dying moments... but as they say, the whistle is usually thrown away by this stage. I know this is not direct memories of the game but hope it is helpful.

    Eddie shows love for Dees

    Our finals record agaibst them since war years is simply amazing, something like 15 out of 16. Didn't do Hawthorn any good though.

    Chris Judd thinks we celebrated too hard.

    The euphoria certainly didn't hurt us in '87, quite the opposite. To the toppermost of the poppermost.
  14. I think it was in 1940 Melbourne had apoliceman tagging Jack Dyer.

    Wallace Calls Out Goody

    In 1967 we finished 7th, not quite good enough to make the four but a good recovery from the Smith/Barassi debacle. 50 years later we are still 7th. Plus ca change?
