Coodabeens on ABC

Recommended Posts

So, the coodabeens are banging on about all of us going to the snow etc etc etc

Insulting as usual

As usual, the only answer is to get to the G on Monday.

(after the exams - imagine - exams on QBirthday Monday - at least it's in the a.m.)

The Coodabeens were well past their Use by date about 25 years ago.

Coodabeen pre-production meeting...

Struggling for material (again)? Check.

Demons struggling a bit? Check.

Queen's B'day Round? Check.

Ski season opening? Check.

Dust off jokes from 1976? Check.

Not many Dee fans to offend? Check.

Great thinking guys! Lets go with that brilliant material again.

Do you think our audience will remember that we trotted this out last year? (and the year before...and...)

Nahh! Top job guys.. lets go with it...

I like the Coodabeens and I like how precious and uptight Melbourne supporters get when they make snow jokes. By the way I can't wait to get to the snow this year.

I find comedians with original content a bit funnier Clint.

Was actually funny the 1st time I heard it (30 something years ago).

Love the snow too.

I think people keep up the snow jokes because it always gets a rise out of us.

As I say to my preps; Is it true? No? Then who cares what they say?

There is truth to it. Not the snow specifically but the fact that a large proportion of Melbourne supporters are in the higher income brackets, drive European cars and alike (the MCC is full of people in beige). And yes, it gets a response which is why they keep doing it, which is why I like it.

So I guess it's like saying that people that listen to the Coodabeens are radical, left-wing, bleeding-heart pinko communists like the rest of the ABC listenership? :lol:

It's used because it's a gag everyone recognises. They've been trained to laugh at it and they think repeating it makes it so.

It's tired. It's recycled. Those so-called comedians have not generated original material in more than a decade. In fact this one goes back a quarter of a century! They are SOOOOO yesterday.

I will go to the snow this year, for the first time in a long time, because I have a few spare bucks...but I'll do it when we are playing interstate.

Just like we all make jokes about Collingwood supporters having less than a full set of teeth, or having an IQ comparable to that of a tapeworm.

Or Port Adelaide supporters wearing mocassins and stealing stuff.

It's just a stereotypical thought process that's common in life. We here all know it's not true, and we all know that our supporters are actually some of the most vocal there are (36,000 at the Brisbane game sounded like 70,000).

I certainly don't go near the snow but we had a bunch of [censored] twats behind us last week that were all Melbourne (probably 8 of them). In their early to mid 30s, with their children (who kept changing teams every two seconds, even though they were dressed in MFC jumpers), discussing the snow. It gives us all a bad name. Gives me the shits, but I guess it's that jealousy thing. People hate Collingwood because they're a rich club, just as people play the snow card with us. I get annoyed with it, because the subtext is we're not passionate or care about our club. It couldn't be further from the truth, regarding my family and as has been pointed out, we are a very vocal supporter base, if smaller than the bigger Melbourne clubs.

I had a lit exam on QB back in '01. Rushed through it as fast as I could and raced to the 'G in time for the first bounce.

Really? C'mon, get over it guys, it's not a big deal at all. Yes, the Coodas bring out the same songs every year, but they are classics, and always funny... I have a laugh at it. But really, they are just about the only ones who actually mention that stereotype these days (now that we're actually decent), it's mostly died out.

You'll live.

Absolutely Clint. The reaction from the precious nellies is actually the big joke.

The actual Barry Humphries skit they played is a very funny spoof from the early 60s that could easily resonate today. I had not heard it for a while but it was another wicked Humphries take on the Melbourne he lived in.

Bring back Ivan from Ivanhoe.

I still have many of his phone calls on cassette tapes. Priceless humour!!!

Agree with that.

I think Simon Whelan who is now a county court (?) judge used to do Ivan on the calls. Simon's wit is sadly missed on the C'Beens.

I also miss Timmy from Thomastown. :( The perennial 11 yo lad with a boy crush on Craig Starcevich with the criminal low grade father. Timmy would be in his 30s by now. :unsure:

Well you have a choice turn off the radio or change the channel dial.

When Simon Left the Coodabeens i stopped listening, i now hear it in my dads car on the way to the ground.

Dads radio is welded to the ABC

Timmy and his dad and uncles!!! Brilliant. The remand centre was accessable to Etihad stadim via a man hole!

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had
