Such a great photo, Satyr. But it looks like you've been tied up with some rope. If nothing else, if anyone wants to label all Melbourne supporters as conservative, Range Rover driver-types, we can just show this photo of you as Exhibit A.

Agreed!

And on that irksome topic of 'typical' conservative Melbourne supporters; I (mis?)spent my youth in the punk/skinhead scene where generally sport is not a highly rated pursuit or interest. Yet I discovered heaps of fellow Dees fans, closeted or not, who despite their anachronistic anti-establishment tendencies love the Red and Blue! 

As a kid in 1980's/90's outer-eastern suburbia surrounded by fans of successful clubs (Hawthorn, Essendon, Geelong, etc) at school, it was naturally rebellious, even masochistic, to choose the MFC. To back the unfashionable perennial underdog - losers, even. I reckon that ideal is appealing to all sorts of types from all walks of life. And lends itself nicely to the misfit, anti-social approach of the punk scene I and other lifelong Dees fans immersed themselves into in our youth (you know who you are).

It goes to show the cliche of elitist, private school, Range Rover-driving, Grange-swilling, Portsea-polo-attenting, yuppy Dees supporters may have some truth, but is far from the reality.

Stereotypes only matter if you let them bother you. 

I barrack for Melbourne. I was also born in Melton South (not exactly a den of the privileged) and I went to state schools all my life. I fell in love with the Dees because of blokes like Balls Grinter, Steve O'Dwyer, Big Jimma and Allen Jakovich (though he came later). The whole blueblood thing has never appealed to me.

I am interested @Deemented Are Go! about the number of Geelong supporters in that neck of the woods. I noticed myself that they are about when I lived in Ringwood (occasional bumper stickers). Geographically didn't make much sense but I guess winning does help. Not so much Essendon.

But you were right about the Dawks. Come 2010 when I lived there, they were everywhere.

I've actually toned down as I aged, in late 60's thanks to slavishly copying Noel Redding and his hairstyle and my lack of height, I was often mistaken for a fluorescent dandelion, until I saw sense, threw my peace and love outfits away and joined the military

Yeah I just remember heaps of Geelong supporting families in my primary school days. I played a game of little league at Waverley, Melbourne v Hawthorn 1989 , round 19.  The majority of kids on my team (Croydon North FC) were Geelong and Hawthorn. We had to wear the MFC strip much to my delight and their horror. 

We won the little league game (I kicked 0.2 from the forward pocket) , but Melbourne lost to Hawthorn in the seniors. I’ll never forget we sat as a team to watch the last quarter and I was outright bullied by the other kids  as the game slipped away. I lost my taste for little league but strengthened my resolve as a Dees tragic: me against them kinda stuff.

Kids are brutal!

This brings me back to when are great Jimmy Stynes was just a raw Irish lad and still learning our rules and at that s*#$ hole Wavely park. When the great one went over the mark.

Coming home on the train it was packed with the red and blue.  One guy started to sing our great club song and i kid you not we all joined in, even though we lost we came together to try and lessen the pain.

As the train pulled into Flinders street station there was this girl who was a dawk supporter and as my boyfriend at the and i were making away off the train she shoved that stupid dawks scarf into my face, i said if you don't stop it you know where that thing will end up, she tried it again and my boyfriend grabbed so i couldn't shove it in it's rightful place.

I hate them of all the teams in the AFL bunch of BLEEPS!

So yer i feel your pain.

    OVERPOWERED by George on the Outer

    If there was ever a prime example of a team of players not ready for the new football season it was Melbourne in the opening round of 2019.   Throughout the field there was just too much evidence of players who haven’t had sufficient pre-season or players who ordinarily wouldn’t have even graced the field at this early stage.   The Demons also got a lesson on selection with Port Adelaide showing that two ruckmen on the field is an essential for this season.  It was a lesson that should

    THE WELCOME GAME by Whispering Jack

    The Melbourne Football Club has moved forward in leaps and bounds since it last met Port Adelaide in a totally forgettable (for Demon fans) season opener on the MCG.  That game, played on Sunday, 31 March, 2013 before a crowd of 22,924, was supposed to be a close encounter between two of the competition’s lesser lights from the previous season when the Power had finished 14th and the Demons 16th (ahead only of AFL newbies Gold Coast and GWS). It turned into a slaughter with Port taking the

    THE WALKING WOUNDED by Paddy Gosch

    Forget the fact that Melbourne narrowly missed out on getting the four JLT points on offer for a second consecutive week and the blow to the ego of a supposed top four contender losing ... well almost at home ... to a team that has recently dwelt in the AFL cellar and won a mere five games in 2018. The things that emerged from the horror final JLT outing was that the Demons are a long way from being prepared to take on the rigours of a long tough season in which they have one of the hardest fixt

    PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons have named a star studded line up in it’s final practice match before the season proper. They take on the emerging Brisbane Lions out at Casey which is the second of three matches at the ground on Saturday. Many of the Dees best 22 have been recalled including Vice Captains Max Gawn and Neville Jetta whilst Captains Nathan Jones and Jack Viney will play restricted minutes in the VFL curtain raiser. Former Gold Coast co-captain Steven May will play his first official game for Melb

    HIT OUT by Paddy Gosch

    As far as preseason hit outs go, the Demons’ first JLT Community Series fixture against the Tigers in the blistering heat at Shepparton, was instructive of a number of things but not really conclusive as to how each team will fare in the regular season against the competition's big guns (which includes against each other). That’s the way these practice match hit outs go. Neither of the teams was at full strength, particularly Melbourne but if you were looking for the reason for the 12 point

    HOT OUT OF THE CITY by Paddy Gosch

    The Dees travel out of the city for game one of two JLT Community Series practice matches before the season proper. Our first match takes us to the floodplains of the Goldburn River in Northern Victoria to the city of Shepparton. We take on the Tigers for the first of at least 3 encounters with the 2017 Premiers this year. The game will be played in scorching temperatures so expect plenty of rotations, ice vests, fans running overtime and extra water carriers. The Demons are coming off a wi

    GAME, SET & SCRATCH by Paddy Gosch

    I always believe in starting off any report by accentuating the positive and in that regard, as at the time of writing, the Demons have not reported any injuries so that’s my major positive from today’s practice game v the Magpies (albeit that we know the club is somewhat lax in reporting these things so my best wishes go out if any of today’s participants are in intensive care at the Alfred).  Another positive was that Razor Ray performed his umpiring duties admirably which is more than I

    SCRATCH by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons are set to take on the old enemy Collingwood in a good old fashioned Scratch Match on Friday Morning. It is unknown what form the match will take, how many quarters there will be, their length, the amount of rotations or even whether they'll keep score. One thing we do know for sure is that both coaching staffs will be keeping their cards close to their chests to ensure neither will glean too much from their competition. The Dees will likely be without some of their stars as Tom

    IMAGINE by Whispering Jack

    The Demons made their official return to the training track for 2019 on a sunny Saturday morning at Goschs Paddock with most of the interest initially centred on a small patch of ground in one of the pockets where the rehab group was going through the paces. Some good pieces of news on that score. The  rehab group is considerably smaller than it was prior to the Christmas break with Christian Petracca (knee), James Harmes (shoulder), Jayden Hunt (shoulder), Neville Jetta (shoulder), Oscar M
