Fair enough he made a choice to leave - his role was going to be diminished by the talent we have got coming in and was probably offered a lesser contract. But he must be aware of the effect the comments that he apparently made after the match last night would have. Tie that in with the certain of treachery that is inherent in leaving a club and you have got a souring relationship. Some people were embarassed when we booed Bock last year, but I thought it gave the 'G the feeling of a 'home ground crowd' that we have not had in a while. Why then not show this guy that we will not just give him a pat on the back as he walks away to what he thinks will be greener pastures?

I'll boo him anyway but what did he say?

He said "that was my first win in round 1, since 2005". Not that bad, don't know if he said anything else.

Sometimes it's just the way things are said...

If its a statement of fact then there isnt much to object to now is there? As players and supporters we can empathise with that cant we?

All he was really saying it was great to win first up asnd then he had not done so since 2005.Brock has been very consistant saying he did not feel that the MFC would improve dramatically over the next 2 to 3 years. However let's show him team- by winning tommorrow.

I'll never boo him as I genuinely believe Brock gave all and was totally honest by saying he did not want to play with the team anymore.We just need to hope Gysberts turns out well as a replacement.I think he will.

me too!!!

Personally I leave the booing to the hypocritical cretins at clubs like carlton and collingwood. They boo anyone who leaves them but cheer like rabid dogs for anyone who comes to them, like Judd and Ball.

I'll boo him anyway (just for kicks) but I don't think those comments are that offensive to be honest. Brock's gone, and I for one am extremely happy we got Gysberts for him.

I really rate Booing. I find it very enjoyable and usually have a good laugh after each good boo. i always enjoy the footy and a bit of good humoured vocal banter is a great part of it. If you want to hear some cretins go no further than the MCC members where I sit. The words "kick it" are used as a solve all by many of my fellow supporters.

do you concede that some of those 'kick its' are followed by a series of handballs that eventually come unstuck and someone is caught into a turnover, and kicking it WOULD have been the better option

I will very much enjoy Booing then laughing at Brock when he's hopelessly trying to run down a player at walking pace, with his head strangeley upright. As a passionate Demon suporter, laughing sometimes is the only thing that keeps me sane.

He was playing and therefore partially responsible for these losses he is making stupid remarks about.

If the passionate, massive, tribal, huge, etc crowds that follow the blues and pies around are cretins, then call me a wannabe cretin.

Definite case for booing.

FFS. Whatever pleases people these days? :rolleyes:

I remember Woewy's first game against us, on Queens Birthday. Many of our supporters booed him and i could not work out why, given we gave him the push. Collingwood went on to win by 58 points that day. An embarrassing defeat, made even more so by imbecilic booing.

While it may feel good for some at the time, it serves no purpose whatsoever. You can boo at your own peril. I just want to see a good game of footy and hopefully the Dees can challenge Carlton.

The only time I've ever booed at a football match was a few years ago when Ben Johnson gave Belly a hip to the head and knocked him out cold. Booed every time he got near it after that. Beyond that, I can't really be bothered wasting my energy booing, especially not for players who we were more than adequately compensated for when they left. I just don't see the point.

The point is he turned his back on us, thought he could do better, thought he deserved better, than to play for the Melbourne Football Club.

Having said that I won't boo him because I'll be too busy watching the play to bother, lol.

But I will never cheer him again that's for sure. And I'll never forget the fact that he put himself before his mates.

Brock's been a pro in all the media I've heard since he decided to leave and since he left.

He did donate that money to the Demons too.

I wont be booing him but I also wont be wishing him luck at Carlton

If Ju$$ & Ball were playing for us tomorrow you would be cheering them-now wouldn't you.... :)

I wouldn't waste my time. More important players to boo...

Possibly current demons.

:D

I kid. There's far more threatening players running round for the blues I'd be worried about. Kruezer, Judd, Murphy, Gibbs... They're the difference-makers in that side.

    HOT PIES FREEZE DEES by George on the Outer

    In the Annual Big Freeze game in support of Neale Daniher's fight against MND, it was Collingwood who froze the ambitions of the Demons, and it now challenges them to thaw out their prospects in the second half of the season. Even though Melbourne opened the scoring account, it was quickly countered by Collingwood, as the Demons appeared flat. And even though they held a minor lead at the first break, it was only through a couple of fortunate efforts, but nothing more.  All around

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne supporters are an unusual lot. Their lived experiences over years of witnessing their team’s humiliation at the hands of the competition’s bullies have left them suspended in a Bizarro World beset by a cognitive distortion know as 'mental filtering'. This is a phenomenon that occurs when people focus exclusively and blindly on long held belief systems. They refuse to accept that conditions have changed so when the evidence is present before their very own eyes, their minds are frozen.

    CHANGES: 2021 MID SEASON by The Oracle 

    Since the end of the 2020 free agency, trade and draft period, AFL clubs have had two further bites of the cherry to top up their lists — the supplemental selection period (SSP) and the 2021 mid-season rookie draft (MSD). The main idea behind both was to enable the fulfillment of immediate needs as a result of injuries or unexpected retirements but this year, we have seen the added dimension of straight out recruitment for the future rather than for now. As a consequence, a number of ready

    LION TAMERS by George On The Outer

    In an enthralling game between two top four sides, it was the Demons who tamed the Lions, and propelled themselves into the position of premiership favourite even though the season is barely past the halfway mark. This is because Melbourne keeps on beating those teams around them who might provide a challenge. Not only that, it keeps winning with emphatic displays of resilience and toughness that have not been seen in a Demons side for many, many years. Challenged in the first half of

    DUELING BANJOS by Whispering Jack

    In the classic Australian poem, A B “Banjo” Paterson sought the answer by letter to a question concerning the whereabouts of a drover named “Clancy”. The response from Clancy’s shearing mate was written with a thumb-nail dipped in tar: “Clancy’s gone to Queensland droving, and we don’t know where he are.” Most of us would have felt a little bit that way earlier in the week wondering about the possible whereabouts of the Melbourne team for this week’s encounter against Brisbane.

    DOGGED DEEFENCE by George on the Outer

    “No-one let the Dogs out” was the Demons response for the (former) top side.  The Melbourne defence, capably lead by Steven May and Jake Lever simply suffocated any hopes that the Western Bulldogs might have had about leading the competition at the mid-way point. Instead, it is the Demons who now sit at the top of the ladder, again a game clear, while their supporters are starting to believe that this side is the real deal.  Pity is that those same supporters couldn’t watch their team demol

    LOOK AWAY DEMON FANS by The Oracle

    Last week I predicted a comfortable Melbourne victory for its game against Adelaide. “Something in the order of 61 points”, I opined. Well, after the game, I checked the wording of my preview very carefully from all angles and I have now concluded that I have to issue an apology to Demon fans. I got it wrong. I’m not bitter and twisted about my error in failing to predict the coaching errors, defensive mistakes, lack of forward pressure and, of course, the complete failure of those officiat

    CALM BEFORE THE CALM by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons overcame a sluggish first half to run over the Sydney Swans in the second to record an emphatic 40 point victory, maintaining their undefeated record and retaining top spot on the VFL ladder. The game originally listed as part of the Round 4 fixture but delayed due to a Covid19 scare in Sydney and the scrappy way in which the teams approached the contest suggested that the players were still in delay mode. This applied in particular to most of the 12 AFL listed Casey player

    NOTHING TO CROW ABOUT by George On The Outer

    Melbourne’s nine game winning streak  came to an end in Adelaide with a one point loss to the Crows. Losing to a team that had only won three games for the season, having lost five in a row was certainly nothing to crow about.  All around the ground players collectively put in their poorest performance for the year.  The loss of Christian Salem before the match was critical, as his replacement Nev Jetta is a mere shadow the player he once was. The mind is still willing, but the body no

    CRYING OVER SPILT MILK by The Oracle

    It had to happen sooner or later. Melbourne has been riding high through the season to date and, with the exception of a small bunch of nuff nuffs who are never satisfied with anything, the club has attracted more positive vibes from the community in these nine weeks than it did in the past decade. So it came as no surprise to see some low grade stirring of the sort which only the media could come up with at a time like this. The on line site Zero Hanger came up with an article that opined,

    CATNIPPED by KC from Casey

    After winning big away from home across the first three rounds of the new look VFL competition, the Casey Demons were forced to dig deep against Geelong VFL at Casey Fields on Saturday. The traditional AFL based teams were evenly matched, fielding ten listed players apiece and this was reflected in the evenness of the game and the final margin which saw the home side leading by a solitary point on the final siren. Casey suffered an early blow when Jake Bowey came off with what ap

    BLUES IN THE RED by George On The Outer

    While the Demons’ undefeated run continues unabated now at 9-0 their emphatic 26 point victory pushed the Blues to their sixth loss for the season and deeper into the red for the year. While Melbourne opened proceedings with an early goal, the Blues responded with the next two to grab an early lead.  However, as has happened in so many games this year, the Demons fought back to lead by just over a goal come the first break. This narrow lead was part of a streak either side of quarter t
