Doesn't let up, does it?

We convincingly beat a side who's the clear favorite to win, while Hawks get spanked by Richmond. Yet, there's still Hawthorn morons online paying out on Melbourne!!

Seriously thinking Hawthorn may replace Collingwood as my most hated team, purely because of the obnoxiously arrogant supporters.

Meh. I've learned to tune it all out. Opposition fans (and media) naturally prefer the status quo of Melbourne being a basket case. It means their own team is one more spot away from the bottom. 

Focus us on how the team is progressing and the sounds coming out of the club. Ignore everything else. If they ain't us, they are the enemy. What they say reflects that status.

Well the hawks have just won 3 in a row.

My most hated fans, by the length of the straight and then some, are james hird worshipping drug cheat supporting essendon fans who then somehow have the gall to tell us that we wouldnt exist if it wasnt for all the money they bring to the afl.

If Melbourne had just won 4 of 6 flags I'd be the worse supporter in the world to be near for opposition. I have 39 years of arrogance built up I'm waiting to let loose!

I am surrounded by Eagle and Docker fans over here. HELP!

The only way out for me will be when the MFC can finally field a competitive team.

I am also hoping this means they are capable of winning a flag or two.

I do appreciate that winning a flag in the AFL is a big ask for any drug free club but it worth a go.

I am living for the day Gororoth.

There is a perfect way to shut them up of course.

Win on 4th June.

Tend to agree.
I hate them all.
The druggies are at the top though.

I can feel a certain amount of sympathy for Essendon fans who have been so hideously let down by their club. But any that start talking about some kind of conspiracy against them or the AFL being 'out to get them' need their head checked. And they can never complain about 'subsidising' the poorer clubs again.That club's cheating has probably been a $100m liability to the AFL. It will be interesting to see if Essendon ever regains the kind of support it had ten years ago.

The sweetest win of all though would definitely be Hawthorn at the moment. Not least because to beat Hawthorn, by necessity, you have to be brutal. You have to at least break even against a very mature and tough core of onballers, and then you have to hunt down the speedy creative players and force them to play under physical pressure.

Heh, I guess what I'm saying is 'to beat Hawthorn at any time, you have to play finals-style football', Well, duh. Congratulations me. But no doubt it would be a doubly sweet win, to annoy Hawthorn supporters and also say something significant about Melbourne.

Also, I hope we truly pummel each of Essendon, Carlton, Brisbane and St Kilda. I want us to show we are a class above that bottom layer. Plus, they're all a bit light-on for tall defenders capable of keeping up with Hogan, so a few nice bags of goals for him would be fun.

At work I never talk to to opposition fans. They either have no idea, or they have no idea.

Speaking of opposition fans, the comments under yesterday's Herald Sun match report are hilarious. 335 comments for a glorified practice match, about 330 of which are Port and Adelaide fans smashing each other.

Yep, Adelaide fans and ports fans have the funniest rivalry. Only need to read Bigfooty to see why.

May the Flatlands of VFL park open up and swallow all who dwell there.  The rest can crumble slowly.

The Hawks have a massive bandwagon tarred in poo and feathered. Probably the biggest in the league.

If they had just been through the last 10 years that we've had they would have a total of 652 members signed to date this year...

I usually ignore all baiting from opposition supporters.  If they say anything to me, I just stare at them in stony silence, with a "you're a complete moron" look on my face. 

I can't help myself though when the Hawthorn supporters start tossing on about how it's their great culture that wins flags and blah blah blah.  They seem to want to attribute their success to every superfluous 1%er other than the fact that they just have a lot of good players in their team.

Melbourne supporters singing the Melbourne song before the siren is my pet peeve, opposition supporters i couldnt give a rats razoo about because at the end of the day they will continue to talk down about us until we have sustained form and they can no longer talk down about us.

Melbourne supporters cannot afford to be cocky and there is nothing worse than when it is encouraged to sing the song before the final siren, I never want to see us lose, but just once when supporters start signing the song I would like to see us squander a lead so it never happened again.
