An interesting perspective

Recommended Posts

I'm watching these sad events from Holland at the moment, and I'm quite distressed by them. Kind of glad I'm not there.

Someone on that other forum has an interesting take on where our problems lay.

Umm, HO if you are suggesting that its the all the fault of the same supporters who have been following the club for the past 50 years you are sorely mistaken. Supporters come and go too; you are aware people die, change teams and give up on football? I would also wager that many current Members were born recently, and if you suggest it is hereditary I would suggest you look at how many supporters families weren't even Dees supporters, I would be one of those, blaming the fans is hilarious.... I'm sure all those Kangas fans were pushing Carey and co. along in the 90s, then dropped off the last couple of years, get your hand off it. I think the biggest problem a supporter base can have is to eat their own, and this would consititute that very idea.

No offense if there are any 'Ology members here, but just reading over their posts on various threads makes me think they are largely a group of arrogant know-nothing-know-it-alls. Seriously I can't believe how self-righteous some of their drivel is.

I agree Cozmo and have said so on another thread.

We too often just roll over.

This post on Demonology sums up why I am sometimes embarrassed to be a Dees supporter.

"I suspect that we are more intelligent, have higher IQ's and are professionally more successful than average supporters of other clubs. We therefore have the intellect and means to get enjoyment from more meaningful activities other than football and therefore don't care about it as much as other clubs supporters."

BEING BORN INTO A POSITION OF SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC PRIVILEGE DOES NOT GIVE YOU A HIGHER IQ !!!!! Being born into privilege and being sent to the most prestigious schools gives you a great advantage but not a higher IQ! What breathtaking arrogance!

Sometimes when I sit amongst my fellow Dees supporters and look around me I feel "I don't belong here". The feeling is more pronounced when I am invited as a guest by an MCC member. BTW I don't hail from "struggle town" by any means, but attitudes such as those expressed above make my blood boil.

Absolutely, spot on.

When I ever take friends & family, they often comment that we have the strangest supporters in the league, that spend more time having a crack at their own players than the opposition .... "very negative" bunch is often used.

Not sure where you guys are sitting, I find melbourne supporters to be some of the best.

Hawthorne and Richmond supporters are the ones that have bugged me the most. And the odd geelong supporter.
