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.

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.

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.

    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

    CHANGES 2019 by The Oracle

    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

    COOKED by The Oracle

    I can vividly remember when the Demons ventured onto Blundstone Arena for the first time in early 2016 only to lose to the Kangaroos by 20.11.131 to 21.10.136.    Melbourne was then a team on the up and up: young, enthusiastic and bold. It gave up a huge quarter time deficit after kicking against a strong wind but made that up by half time and fell dramatically short after an exciting high scoring affair.  The team lost no fans that day - they were willing to take the game on and attac

    HELP by KC rom Casey

    The Casey Demons finished off their home and away season against Frankston at Skybus Stadium on Sunday with a narrow, unconvincing 6-point victory that left the door slightly open for a top eight berth when the VFL finals begin in a fortnight’s time. While sunny skies prevailed over Frankston in the morning, the skies became overcast by noon and heavy waves pounded the bay nearby as the rains came in to greet the players as the game started. And conditions stayed dark and dreary for the rem

    THANKS BUT NO THANKS by George on the Outer

    Thanks, but no thanks! In a round where the club was supposed to thank their fans for the support during the year, the Melbourne Football Club chose to do otherwise with a 53 point loss to a team that sat 15th on the ladder.  Don’t give us cheap jumpers that can’t be sold in the Demon shop.  Don’t give us vouchers to shop there, give us something on the field, which is why we come to the football in the first place. It was a disgraceful performance, which started with a disgracefu

    SLEEP OUT AT THE MCG by The Oracle

    Around about 12 months ago Melbourne and Sydney fought out an epic battle between two top eight teams fighting for the best possible ladder position in the lead up to the finals. The Swans triumphed by 9 points at the MCG after the Demons came back from five goals down at three quarter time. But for its poor kicking for goal, Melbourne might well have won the game and finished in the top four. Who knows what might then have happened for the club in September? As a consequence, the person re

    A LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE by KC from Casey

    Two clubs that have been hard hit by injury recently took part in a dour battle under dark clouds and, with intermittent showers falling, it wasn’t a pretty game at Victoria Park on Sunday. Despite all that, the Casey Demons added a little ray of sunshine to their day to get the job done over a "traditional" rival with a 15 point victory over Collingwood VFL that breathed life back into their season. There were a few highlights at the ground that in past days has seen many titanic batt

    THE RETRO ROUND by George on the Outer

    We have seen it all before… Yes, a wonderful idea to showcase what used to be in football.  Big crowds, umpires who knew how to apply the rules and not opinions, high marks, skilful players. But for the Melbourne supporters their retro is what it has been like for the past 10 years. Losing games, end on end, year after year.  Opportunities squandered in front of goal. VFL standard players running around at the MCG. Just more of the same, and the game against Collingwood was no ex

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    Thanks to Demonlanders for their input into this week’s preview. Ralphius Maximus is short and bittersweet: We'll crack in at the bounce to create a contest, win our share of the ball, butcher the forward movement and get scored on easily from the intercepts. Not that hard to predict. Big Demon says: Unfortunately Collingwood will win because they have a lot more to play for. We will be good in parts but really the season is well over so we will have to put up with those bell

    WHAT, NO BLOOD? by George on the Outer

    The feeling when turning up to the MCG on a Saturday night to play a top four side in Richmond, while the Melbourne sits cemented in close proximity to the bottom of the table is like attending the Colosseum in Ancient Roman times. The expectation is that a bloodbath is about to occur. There are 100,000 Richmond members and 50,000 Melbourne members, and despite the fact that it turned out to be a wet night after half-time, a crowd of only 37K bothered to turn up. That should never have happ
