Meth Coast full of coke and ice addicts? Fact.

Melbourne fined for tanking? Fiction. 

End of story. Jako needs to stop snorting the boundary line.

Hypocrisy thy name is Jacko! Tanking accusations from a side that managed to pull Luke Shuey as a priority pick in the 2008 draft just 2 seasons after winning a drug fuelled flag! Give me a break. 

Some gold in this thread. Double likes for both of you.

Glen Jakovich said nothing out of place. Connolly should not even comment on the game after the damage he was part of at The MFC. 

The All Australian is 22 spots

that is all you can fit

So Connolly questions the omission of Neale and Jakovich is allowed to crack the sads and get personal because of it?  

It's poor form from Jakovich.  There was no need for him to say it.

If all Connolly did was criticise an AA omission Jakovich's reply was completely over the top. CC is perfectly entitled to make such a criticism, after all, that's pretty much what every footy fan in Australia has done since last week.

Jako must have a thin skin. No doubt he's aware that while he was a gun player, he's only a commentator because he was a gun player. Nothing he's ever said proves him to be anything other than your token jock.

If Connolly said anything more, Jako was probably still OTT, but it's hard to see CC having a similarly caustic cut at Jako.

No cuddles for Jako.

I think he might be bitter that his Bro packed more excitement into a year than he gave us in his whole career.

Now if anything is irrelevant to what he said, it's that.

Anyone who lines up our club in that fashion when it's completely uncalled for, can gagf.

I'll be making the effort to phone in and take Jakovich to task on this. In my opinion, the bloke just disgraced himself as an immature commentator who obviously has an axe to grind with Cuddles.

Why bother bringing the club into it? 

What a clown.

Nice work McQueen.

But what Jacko said was right?

His carry on about our club, when completely uncalled for?

My F&*%ing oath is was out of line.

Lets see Connolly give a sermon about how many of our guys have died from a drug overdose, and how many of them are out directing traffic in their underwear on the freeway.

Yeah, it's an interesting side note that is West Coats hadn't tanked against us just a few rounds earlier, then the Melbourne-Richmond game of such ill repute would never have been an issue.

IF the comments on the end of that article are anything to go by there are quite a few people that think Glen is in the wrong space with this criticism, although more about his knowledge than his choices. Not the first article today in print about tanking in the vague context of comparisons (our "tanking" with GWS's dilemmas) all the same.

Good to see there wasn't any tanked games this year or the last ten for that matter. hasn't happened for years!!!

Yes I remember that game where we supposedly tanked. We managed to be ahead on points when the siren sounded but apparently according to Caroline Wilson there were some suspicious fumbles of the ball on the boundary line just seconds before the ball was kicked to Jordan McMahon who then kicked the winning goal for the Tigers. I think it was Pettard who fumbled in the last seconds and gee he had never done that before so the evidence was compelling.

On some points, of course he was.  

But what did it have to do with Connolly commenting that Neale was stiff to miss out?

Who actually cares. He blew up, and yes it wasn't really called for, but to be honest everyone who was in someway responsible for the insipid way our club was run and managed during those times deserves every ounce of ridicule they receive.

No, we have already received all of the ridicule TSFKA.

 

My issue is that drugovich had a massive crack at our club, when there was ZERO justification whatsoever.

Connolly didn't talk about the weagles being crack heads. He simply had an issue with a Freo player not being named in the A.A team.

What the other bloke did was line up our club, with no basis for attack whatsoever, and for that I say he can go eat a f*&%ing bucket of dhiks.

Never heard of this "Glen" Jakovich. Must be some relation to the great Allen Jakovich ;)

Seriously though, there are omissions to all  Australian every year that cause an uproar. Jakovich should have just let it ride.

    PREGAME: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    The Demons return to the MCG to take on the Saints in Round 11 on the back of two straight losses in a row. With Jake Lever out with concussion who comes in and who goes out?

    POSTGAME: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Many warned that this was a danger game and the Demons were totally outclassed all game by a young Eagles team at Optus Stadium in Perth as they were defeated by 35 points.

    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

    CENTIMETRES by Whispering Jack

    Our game is one where the result is often decided by centimetres; the touch of a fingernail, a split-second decision made by a player or official, the angle of vision or the random movement of an oblong ball in flight or in its bounce and trajectory. There is one habit that Melbourne seems to have developed of late in its games against Carlton which is that the Demons keep finding themselves on the wrong end of the stick in terms of the fine line in close games at times when centimetres mak
