When will Melbourne break these embarrassing records?

Recommended Posts

We should keep this thread going until the positive thread has more posts than this one. It will remind us of the dark days and what we've had to survive to enjoy going to the footy again.

Beat North Melbourne

- Last win: Round 5, 2006 (14-game losing streak)

 

You forgot to strike that one off, praha.  The only ones left from your list will be September related, and maybe just maybe we tick them of this season too.

Feels nice to be a proper footy club once again.

We're 0-14 against Lance Franklin. Time to give that one the heave ho.

So, which club now has the longest streak of not playing in finals? I'd just like to know who I can look down on.
