the ponsford stand spent a lot of time booing during the game. any demon kicking a set shot at that end got booed mercilessly. in fact the only time a filth supporter actually sounds vaguely coherent is when he boos

Some interesting news going around that apparently Watts flipped the bird to the Collingwood cheer squad after the siren? Joffa Corfe made a rant on Facebook about how much of a [censored] Watts is and what he did was unacceptable or some [censored].. Well his post got deleted but did anyone see him flip the bird?

Get [censored] Collingwood and eat a bag of dicks Joffa!

I've watched the replay again and again.  The best bit is the roar before the ball even goes through.  It started with those behind him (of which luckly I was one) who could see it was gun barrel straight (in memory of my favourite all time commentator) from the moment he kicked it and the rest of the crowd just joined in as one. That joyous roar will live with me for ages. Those who bother to read my posts know I'm a Jack fan and have stood up for him here for a long time.  I was just proud of the boy.

And while I've no problem with Jack giving them the bird I think blowing them a kiss would have been better, it would have pizzed them off even more.

Brilliant meme Ted, but having said that I really like Jeremy Howe.

Oh and Dazzle, a bit of pot calling kettle black in your post lad.  Just saying.

This thread just gets better and better.

Collingwood cheer squad were confused because they couldn't figure out which racist Watts was pointing out to security.

I just noticed in the first frame of the video how Jones, Bugg and Jeffy were all loose in the forward fifty, glad Watts got the goal though. May the filth suffer from the Watts curse from this day forward.

Titanic was a movie about class moreso than icebergs. It's fitting that Jack has taken on the transformative Jack Dawson role from his privileged private-school essence past. Looked like a serious, scruffy footballer on the weekend. Max and Jeffie must have initiated Jackie-boy into the ancient gnostic wisdom of the beard-mojo.

I think his next act after the goal was equally impressive, rushing in to Collingwood's goal to spoil what would have been a goal. Two game winning acts in minutes, great work Jack,  f...  you Collingwood supporters.

Never a great comparison IMO due to their positional differences. However Natanui averaging under 2 marks a game as a ruckman is pretty damning.

Watt's hit out for the Garlett to Hannan goal was pretty damn impressive. Can ruck!

I hated the sight of Joffa nodding and grinning like a fool when the Pies got their 2nd last goal, no doubt thinking, " one more will do it ".  Well, suffer goose. One more didn't do it.

Provided he plays Sunday and next week, he's on track to play his 150th against Sydney on Friday night at the MCG. 

Dont want to look too far ahead and milestone games often tend to backfire but this bloke does deserve a bit more glory.

He has been really durable. Has played 150 games out of a possible 170 odd. 

He has another 5-6 good years ahead of him. Looking forward to seeing his next 100.

I tried to keep an eye on it while it was happening but it was a bit hard from the top level on the wing.

To me it simply looked like he was standing there with a smile on his face and his arms raised. Maybe index fingers pointed straight up. Buggy then joined him too to celebrate. Then the crowd through some bottles at him and security moved in.

Do you really think Watts would flip them the bird? Buggy on the other hand....

Thanks.  Chinese whispers, as evidenced on this thread, are never accurate..

It sounded unlikely that Watts would give them the bird.  Watts standing close to the fence with his arms raised and a big grin on his face is far more in Watts' DNA.  And if Watts really did flip the bird it's unfathomable that not one Collingwood supporter has actually said "Watts flipped the bird at us".

Thanks for clarifying.  Although I hasten to add, posters will be reciting the supposed fact that Watts gave the Collingwood cheer squad the bird post game on QB 2017 for years to come.

He's played 148 according to AFL.com so that would mean the game against the eagles will be his 150th.

Wasn't there a comparison chart somewhere that said NicNat was stuck on 146?

How good would it have been if he & NicNat could have played their 150th in the same game?

It would've been nice symmetry.  Apparently they are also good mates off the field.

How have hell have Naitanui and Watts played almost the same number of games? NicNat seems to be injured a fair bit, while Watts has the permanence of a gnat.

I hope he flipped them the bird and told them their day release was up!

They are the scummiest bunch of low life losers going around. It's ok for them to hackle and abuse, including racially abuse players, on a regular basis, but they can't take a little bit of their own medicine the other way.

Have a sook and enjoy 11th spot you [censored]! 

Still stuck in a time warp of Jacks debut as a kid when their poor booing could influence his game.

They have booed him every game for the only reason as just mentioned. Lowlifes for sure.

My sources confirm it never happened by the way.

    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

    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.

    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?

    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 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.
