Kiwi - Don't get too depressed by the current MFC situation - We've seen good times, and they'll return.

Best time to be apart of the club though. If you feel the lows - the appreciate the highs so much more.

Damn, i feel crook reading the birth dates of most of you here.

My name is Craig. Born second of April 1968 in Numurkah Victoria, and am of Scottish/German/, and a little, Aboriginal stock.

Spent 4 years living in Maitland N.S.W, and now live in Blackwater Qld, working as a shotfirer in a coal mine.

In case you dont know, a shotfirer puts explosives in the ground, then turns big rocks into little rocks.

Having grown up in a conservative National party voting area, i can see both sides of the argument when it comes to politics, (I am a delegate for the CFMEU, and was part of the team that negotiated our last EBA, so i am not a fan of AWA's).

I read, but do not reply to, almost all posts on this site, and demonology, and i find that the posters i am drawn to are the ones i disagree with the most.

HELLO ALL!

Nice... I was born on the April 11 in 68. Spent quite a few years in the Riverina teaching. Love the country life, but I'm in Canberra now.

The rules of this forum say that one person can only have one sign-on, but they don’t stop multiple people from using one sign-on!

Herein lies the problem; I am 54 years of age, wore my first Demons footy strip to primary school sport in 1963 at springvale state school. RMIT Engineering degree, married, 3 kids, played footy in the country, coached footy in the country.

My identical twin is 28 yrs old, never worked, is illiterate, as you can see by some of his posts, and believes he knows all about people’s personalities simply by their forum post, and can sometimes be unfunny.

Hang on, got to go…..quick, Dees Dayz is coming up the driveway.

Hi to all. My name is Matt and I am 35 years old (shudder). I am a lawyer and live in the Virgin Islands, along with my wife and two kids. One of the great things about living outside Australia at the moment is that it has allowed me to completely brainwash the kids in following the Demons. No nasty young Collingwood supporters here to point out the realities of ladder position! I am now teaching them to reserve special hatred for particular opposition teams.

My favourite Demon memories would include the 87 preseason GF win (and wearing my tatty old Demon jumper to school the next day), Garry Lyon kicking a bag in a final against the Dogs and a couple of finals wins against Carlton.

Another lawyer! Not that there's anything wrong with being a lawyer, but we do seem to have a proliferation of them on here.

Sounds like you've got it made BVI... Good job, young family, tropical residence, no Collingwood supporters... sigh.

G'day.

I am TheGrimReaper. I am a Swans supporter, but loves my football and cricket. This year will be the first year, I will become an AFL member, so I am hoping to get down to around 28 to 30 games this year including 6 Melbourne games.

I live in South-West Victoria but originally came from South Melbourne, and I support Port Melbourne in the VFL.

Hey

TheGrimReaper & morton2watts got me here. I am a North fan but have a great interest in the demons. I manage to get to atleast 4 or 5 Demon games a year with my father who is a 30th Melbourne tragic. I love watching Austin Wonaeamirri and Aaron Davey play. They excite the crowd with there pace and thrill. I came here since Melbourne BF Board only bags the club and its not really active. Its great to be here. Hope to catch you around.

Cheers Joe

Hi all, I too am a Dees tragic. On the wrong side of 30 now and looking at a career change (dangerous). I live interstate but am looking at moving to Melbourne some time this year. I have been following the red and blue since '87 and have had country membership for the last 8 years which will soon become a proper membership. Looking forward to a productive 2009 season and beyond.

Hi everyone

I've just joined the forum, so I hope you'll be gentle! I've been a Dees supporter all my life, and have been a member of the club since I was 8 years old, so 30 years now. I've been a Redlegs member for a few years now, but it's not the same as the Redlegs were back in the late 80s/early 90s, when it was in the old Northern stand.

As a teacher I constantly have to put up with students laughing at me when I say I'm a Melbourne supporter, usually Collingwood kids! Doesn't worry me though :)

Don't worry, the tide will turn soon. Nice to have you on board.

PS. Collingwood is constantly referred to the "Filth" on this site. A little crude. But fitting.

Just in case you weren't sure when you come across it from time to time. ;)

Hey guys I just signed up then, this is my first post.

I'm 23 nearly 24, live in Melbourne and am a final year Science student majoring in exercise physiology. I've been a Melbourne supporter since birth along with my dad and brother. I go to as many games as I am able to and this will increase a lot when uni is over. I used to play amateur footy up until i was 20 but I was always better at tennis. I love football in general and try to watch as many games as I can. Best Melbourne memories include meeting Jim Stynes and Gary Lyon at about 10 outside the MCG, qualifying for the 2000 grand final (i forget the result of that GF...), and this year seeing how the supporters of the club have showed their hearts beat true by reaching record membership in a wooden spoon year. I also enjoy seeing Gary on the stretcher!

Hi, I thought this would be good for everyone on the forum to tell us a bit about themselves, whether your a new poster, or an 'old' one.

As for me.

I'm 18, doing VCE exams at the moment. Begun volunteering at the MFC late last year with the Demonology/Demonland volunteer group, and from there I begun doing some full days at the club, including the chance to go on the Footy Show Membership Drive on the clubs table.

My most memorable MFC moment was round 2, 2004, when I went into the rooms, met some players, and ex-players as it was the 'Unficiation March'. Ron Barrassi told me to 'get some porridge' into me. I then donned the playing gear, ran through the banner, and tossed the coin.

Amazing experience.

Ok, over to you.

Just for the history books, I have been a Dee's fan since as long as I can remember, as was my mother and her mother too which has now passed on to my boys. My greatest moment was when I was 12 yrs old and Neil Crompton kicked a goal to win us the 1964 Grand final. I have been forunate to see some great players over the years and even got to play basketball which Crackers during the off season even though we could not convince him it was a not contact game. I am exited about the future prospects of the club and believe that they are on the right road to have us back on top again. With the upcoming talent of our young players and the prospects of the 1 & 2 draft picks who ever they choose, I cant wait to experince that feeling again when the siren goes and we have won another flag.

Darwin Deez supporter here. Am 32 and have followed the Deez from a young age. Had no family influences to persuade me to barrack for the Deez but enjoyed watching Sean White the Irishman play back in the day. And a little later, Steven Tingay. But I'm happy to say that my son HAS had family influence and is also a devoted Melbourne fan. Well, it was either that or he'd have to move out!

    SOCIAL DISTANCING by George on the Outer

    It was good to see the MFC players practicing the directives about social distancing at the game against West Coast.  Pity was that they continued to do so after the first bounce of the ball, as they allowed numerous WCE players run around un-hindered, with not a Melbourne player within 1.5 metres of them! They then found themselves looking at nearly a 5 goal deficit at the first break, which was to be essentially the final margin for the game. It is difficult to judge exactly what is going

    BEST IN SHOW by Whispering Jack

    I am writing this knowing that the AFL has deemed that the opening round of competition will proceed but fully believing that it should not.  The world is going through cataclysmic change as a result of the overwhelming spread of the Covid-19 virus and I agree that a distraction like sport would be good for the public. However, while the physical threat to the population is bad enough, there are other  issues to be addressed including the mental health of the community and the effects on th

    TASSIE DEVILS by Van Demon

    If you were looking for something new from the Demons that wasn’t there last year, you didn’t have to look further than the perfectly trimmed grass surface of UTAS Stadium last night as the team steamrolled the Hawks to record a comprehensive 32-point victory to complete their Marsh Community Series commitments for 2020. One new thing was the fact that for the second Marsh game in a row, the team finished full of running and they dominated the second half without the presence or the dominan

    SOUTH OF THE BORDER by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons will go into their final Marsh Series match with a strong lineup against the Hawks in Tasmania. Both Max Gawn and Steven May, who were recovering from injuries in first Marsh Series match, have both been named. It is unclear whether Max will be on restricted minutes and will likely get breaks in the ruck with Sam Weideman and rookie Luke Jackson getting their turns in the middle. Angus Brayshaw will be getting his first taste of competitive football despite playing in last week’s

    KANGAROO CAUGHT by Whispering Jack

    There was a fair amount of debate in our area as to whether the game warranted a full blown match report because it was felt that it was really an elevated version of a training session with match simulation but against a team in opposition colours. Although notionally the stronger side, North seemed to be using the occasion for the purpose of working on aspects of their game plan, one of the features of which seemed to be based on taking the longest possible route out of defence and good luck w

    JUST AN ABERRATION by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne unveiled its top recruits with new fitness boss Darren Burgess and mid-sized bull Christian Petracca sharing top billing in the team’s Marsh Community Series opener in front of 3,095 football starved fans at Casey Fields and thousands of others watching on screens of various shapes and sizes.  What they saw was a different Melbourne to the one that failed to run out its JLT Series games last year and then crashed in a heap early in the season proper with performances lacking the z

    CROWDOWN by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons open their 2020 season account with a "home" game against the Adelaide Crows at Casey Fields. It’s been more than 5 and half agonising months for the team and supporters who are eager to atone for the disappointing 2019 season which saw the Dees go from Preliminary Finalist to 2nd bottom on the ladder. The preseason campaign has been a hard slog with the addition of respected High Performance Manager Darren Burgess. We caught a glimpse of the gut busting sessions in the Melbourne

    THE YEAR THE SKY FELL by The Oracle

    After a number of years of linear movement up the ladder, the Melbourne Football Club unexpectedly went into serious decline in 2019, slumping from fourth to 17th in a season that coach Simon Goodwin described “a complete wipe-out”. Those around the club who tried to analyse the apocalyptic events that unfolded during the year were hard pressed to find a single reason for the debacle but the most plausible explanation was that the club’s troubles stemmed from a lack of fitness and injuries that

    BACK IN STYLE by Whispering Jack

    From the moment when the Elton John character in the movie “Rocketman” burst into its opening scene dressed as a flamboyant demon on his way to an addiction rehabilitation session, the game was on. Here was yet another film about a person gifted with a meteoric rise to stardom finding coke, booze and a hedonistic lifestyle that led directly to a destructive crash into the abyss. Ultimately, these stories end in total disaster (“A Star is Born”, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Judy”) but this one resulted

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2019

    PART ONE - OVERTURE  I have a disclaimer at the outset. I’m not a fan of the races - be they horses or motors of any kind. Once the final siren sounds on the football season, I find the month or so that follows and corresponds roughly with the Spring Racing Carnival to be the most boring time of the year for sports fans. You turn on the radio and you’re confronted by the monotonous drone of a self-proclaimed racing expert or by the nasally twang of an ex-jockey banging on about the equine p

    PART 1 - IT’S A LITTLE MORE COMPLICATED THIS TIME This year’s free agency, trade and draft period will see the usual drama and upheaval as the AFL’s 18 clubs seek to better their lists in order to challenge for finals and possibly premiership honours. Long before the final siren sounded on the season just over a week ago, the maneuvering was under way with player agents and clubs discussing possible player movements and in some cases, deals had already been done.  Yesterday, the r

    HOW FAR SOUTH? by George on the Outer

    It was appropriate that Melbourne was playing its last game of season 2019 in Hobart.  After all, how much further south could the team go? And much as it has done in many of the previous 22 games, the side managed to extract a loss from a winning position by simply giving the ball back to the opposition time and time again. In fact, they gave it back to the opposition to the tune of 53 points from turnovers while, by way of contrast North Melbourne contributed  only 17 points to their oppo
