    Spot on. There was a sickening article in the Age last week about poor Gaff, what a contrast to Bugg. I know it is the off season and news is a littlethin but this one was the pits.

    Calling all MCC Members

    Hasty illfounded generalization. Can you provide any figures to suggest that the patterns of attendance at MFC games by MCC members differs from other supporters. I have been a member of the MFC for over forty years and a member of the cricket club. From my observations from both in the members and the outer, in dark times supporters are just as scarce in both areas. In fact, possibly because, in the old days, you could seek sanctuary in a good bar as Melbourne were being thrashed yet again, the members that did attend outlasted those in the outer. There are any number of Demonland contributers and readers who are MCC members, however these sort of illconsidered comments only serve to alienate the people who the club are trying to reach out to. If this is the standard of your contribution I neither want nor seek your respect.

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    Absolutely, why would anyone want to go to Freemantle. They have recruited a string of not quite rights, have a game plan that is past its used by date and their best player is in his dotage. If it really is about being near his family I could understand West Coast a successful club whose gun forward is over 30. It is only 12 months and g=he comes out of contract.
  5. Absolutely, the trade was worth it, there were three imports who each in his own way, have been instrumental in the improvement in our on field performances.Firstly they were all great footballers. Daniel Cross in 2013 crossed from Footscray. He brought a level of professionalism and fitness and this began to be become the benchmark to the club. He was part of the leadership group and remains involved with the club. Bernie Vince, who reluctantly came to Melbourne in 2013,. He led from the front and never took a backward step. He was our best and fairest winner in 2016. A great leader and clubman. Finally, Jordan Lewis a four time premiership player, acting captain of the Hawthorn football club. As the MFC website says "Drives standards and acts as a quality teacher for the club’s younger players". After 307 games he has experience that no other player who has played for the MFC can match (David Nietz came close). Of course his playing career is drawing to a close but he is still a class act and an inspiration to our younger players. I hope he still gets games on merit and bows out on his own terms. As a player, he is largely responsible for making Melbourne become a destination club. The hysterical label of this thread and inconsiderate criticism of him do little justice to his achievements as a competitor and contributor to our club.

    Grand final Gameday

    Is incompetence contagious? We must have passed the germ on last week.

    Post Match Discussion - Preliminary Final

    A lot of bitterness but not much optimism
  8. I was lucky enough to be present at the 1964 grandfinal. From memory,my father brother and I were sitting halfway up the old Northern stand. In those days you got tickets for each of the finals your team was involved with and we were sitting next to some older Collingwood supporters, who, given the circumstances were almost civilzed. We beat Collingwood in the second semi and we had a rematch in the grand final after they beat Geelong in the preliminary. So we rocked up and the Collingwood people greeted us amicably. I am very hazy about most of the game but I recall John Lord taking the boundary throw ins in the forward pocket. My recollection of the Gabelich run is that it seemed to take forever and the Collingwood fans were ecstatic. In contrast Cromptons reply was sudden and I I recall it from the celebrations. Needless to say the Collingwood people were absolutely gutted.

    Changes v Eagles - Preliminary Final

    Ithought Spargo was OK yesterday. But the Demons supporters are a broad church, Chook. Thank goodness many of them aren't in military intelligence. Come to think about it..

    Was the win against West Coast rigged?

    I can, but none of the reasons would be flattering. Thetrouble with these sort of facile posts is that they grow legs and multiply, asI am demonstrating.

    Cyril Rioli

    I will be sorry to see Cyril Rioli retire, he was a great footballer. Obviously I didn't want him to play well against Melbourne but like Daicos, Burgoyne, and so many others their sublime skills showcase Australian Rules.

    GAMEDAY - Round 8

    I am deeply shocked. It shows incompetence rather than bias
