  1. Who’s worried about us getting ‘credit’ now? Where exactly does people saying nice things rate on the list of what is important? Think about this next time you want to whinge about what media think about us. All that matters is winning.
  2. So the general consensus in the media is that Collingwood and North are bigger premiership contenders than Melbourne? I haven’t got this vibe or seen it anywhere. Do you have any examples?
  3. Haha just some phone issues there. So a lot of media are claiming Collingwood are premiership contenders but none are claiming Melbourne are? Any proof of this? I just find it fascinating why people are so obsessed by what people in the media think about how we might go this year. The same people that most on here whinge about having no idea. It just comes across as being really needy.
  4. ‘It was pointed out to Buckley after the game that the only top team Collingwood had beaten in that stretch had been Adelaide, with its four losses coming at the hands of Hawthorn, Greater Western Sydney, Richmond and Geelong.‘ Selective reporting by someone accusing people of.....selective reporting.
  5. This thread is embarrassing. Are we North Melbourne? First of all, the OP has drastically misrepresented what was said. Second if all... WHO CARES!!!??? Why would anyone in their right mind give a stuff how much ‘credit’ you get from media for winning games of football? We’ve got a strong team playing amazing football and people still wanna have a whinge. Remember where we’ve come from and enjoy the ride.

    Demons on Masterchef (16/5/18)

    Haha oh Jack. There’s always one. I’d love to know how this is a ‘diversion’. Mass exposure to an audience that otherwise wouldn’t see the MFC, great work by the club. If we lose this week though it will definitely be down to that over cooked steak 4 months ago...

    Post Match Discussion - Round 5

    Maybe we just don’t play the MCG well? We’ll find out over the next month.

    Richmond VFL v Casey Demons - Round 3

    Have Richmond named their team?

    Is Goodwin the right guy....

    You’d have preferred ‘Yeh we saw the 11 goal loss coming’...? That would’ve gone down well.

    That sounds great in theory and I understand what you’re saying. It would be great if we could do that. If we did we would win the flag this year. It’s also nigh on impossible to achieve. I can’t think of 1 team that did that last year. EVERY single week. In Goodwin’s 26 games that is the first time you could say we were very poor.

    The amount of irrelevant information in that post is alarming. Richmond had 5 scoring shots after quarter time last year against Adelaide. The Crows had 30. Was that an honourable 76 point loss? They really faught on after quarter time did they? You’ve worked yourself up into a huff and think yelling and screaming at everyone after a loss means you know what’s right. You do not.

    Richmond lost by 11+ goals twice last season. Once to a team that didn’t play finals. It happens. People seem to think that not storming the club with pitch forks & torches after a loss means it’s accepting it.

    Mahoney, get away

    No mention of the Oliver deal, Hibberd and Lewis deals and the fact that we haven't lost anyone that we wanted to keep over the past 4 years. People bag out Dodoro then get upset when we don't act like him. We don't play games with trades. Our list is top 4 worthy, it's time for the High Performance team and the players to deliver.

    Trade rumours

    An interesting statement from Waldron if that's how it was articulated. Despite people having an unhealthy hate for media, the good journos word their statements well enough so they don't get it wrong often. There isn't any wiggle room in that one about Watts. Langdon still hasn't been held to account enough for saying 'I've got no doubt that Jesse Hogan's next contract will be back in Perth'.
