Is that beer half full OR half empty?

Owner was sculling this before he saw some sleazy paparazzi (since identified as a Tom someone or other) in the bushes taking snaps & he quickly slapped the cap back on!

He was half full but after spotting the published photo says he's feeling a tad empty and 'May' need a hair of the dog prior to his next visit to the club.

When asked what club he was referring to the owner became annoyed responding ...

"whichever allows me a free reign to eat, drink, eat again and be merry and where the only laps I'll be running are from the bar to the dunny and back to the bar again...now could you please bugger off and let me finish what i started!".

Nash you probably didnt see my post from the "Lewis is cooked...." thread on Sat after the match against the Hawks.  Here is the end bit...

P.S.  Jordy should be on the D'land banner ....in place of May who's done zip for this club so far (assuming that IS May in the middle).

Edited Saturday at 10:52 PM by Rusty Nails

If i may mention one other key difference between  Jordy and May that should see Jordy replace May on the banner...

4 time Premiership player, Club B&F 2014, All Australian 2014 ... and...

I've edited it for ya instead mate.

Look he was at the pub from 2:30 in the arvo until 6. In that 3.5 hrs how many beers did he consume. I don't know the policy but I would have thought when you turn up to your new club unfit and you get suspended then play 1 game and hurt yourself you would want to be doing everything right to get back asap. He is 27 not 19. He should know what is the right thing to do for his rehab and fitness. 

This guy hasn't proven anything to his teammates yet. It's annoying that we pay him a high salary yet you have these younger players like Lockhart who are so desperate to play afl footy that he busts his guts out and does the hard yards. Now he is playing seniors because he has done the hard work. May may have tall the talent but so far he hasn't shown us. 

We have a good weekend and now he has put the negative spotlight back on us. Wake up! You have had no success at your old club. Maybe try and get some here. 

I suggest he puts his head down at training and start training pretty hard.

Poor form by May.  To me it seems that he is putting himself above the Club, and that's exactly the sort of culture / behavior I don't want to see at my Club..

I'd like to agree with you but then why is he apologising?

Assume it's because he has agreed with the team to do every little this possible to lift to the standards required to be elite including staying off the P15s...

We’re sponsored by Johnnie Walker. Yet he’s very publicly drinking pints of mid strength beer.

It’s not a very good look to be honest, and I completely understand why he needs to apologise to the entire playing group.

Next time he’ll know to whack down an entire bottle of scotch, rip Tom Morris a new one for publishing undercover pics and generally ratting on him, before being filmed inhaling illicit substances off the bar, and then resisting arrest by a team of cops just outside the pub during which time he does his ACL.

In short, do it properly next time Steven. We’re a hard edged club these days.

What a completely lame ‘breaking story’.

Not just the salary, we traded Hogan for this bloke. I'm honestly not overly concerned about a few beers, it's turning up at the club out of shape that pisses me off. Hopefully he lifts his game. He is a gun, just has to actually give a [censored].

Yep hes been battling through a relationship break down. It has been very hard on him and no excuse but contributing factor to a few things. Roosy, the club and most journos out there know this.

The club has and is putting they're arms around him. The meeting tomorrow is a non issue

Beer is full of dextrose, which is a simple sugary carb which can help with recovery post-intense exercise, it also contains electrolytes and plant based nutrients. Clearly he just had an intense workout and was having a recovery session. He should be praised for his dedication.

Thanks ash.   I'm sorry to here that news.

This could put a totally different view/approach to his situation, and the injury...  if it is one ?

Maybe he's missing games for a different medical reason,?  other than injury.?

He's training well right now mate. 

But yes from a mental health point of view for sure hes been struggling.

Don't worry Dees he will come good.

His ridiculous preseason suspension now seems like such a sliding doors moment.

He was busting his backside on the track and looking good, had a hamstring that he rehabbed and was probably going to fine going in to round 1.

Now it's looking like a wasted season.

New recruits needs some friends in the playing group, that's what I'm seeing. 

A few beers once in an 8 week rehab block wouldn't hurt. The no alcohol in rehab is really designed to assist short turnarounds from short term injuries.

He should've been out on Saturday night with the players and been allowed a few drinks with them. A few beers on Saturday night probably wouldn't have impacted Monday's rehab running session. A good club makes smart rules that are inclusive of all players rather than strict standards that are just sitting ducks to be failed and then generate negative press.

I wonder if May and Morris are in the same social circle,and that’s how Morris found it  out. They both went to. Melbourne Grammar, and are probably a similar age.

How I detest that imp. Can't believe the club briefly employed him.

I know well,  what that's like.    OK.  This is a very different slant on things.

Its time to dig in behind him,  in support,  with this new information.

People are actually outraged that he had a couple of sunday pints? You should be deported. 

Next headline:

"Steve May to front the playing group over an incident over the weekend in which in engaged in sexual intercourse outside of the missionary position. Reports also seem to suggest he went two weeks without calling his mum. More to follow."

He was there for three and a half hours, leaving at 6pm, and had ‘several pints.’ The definition of several is ‘more than two but not many.’ And there’s the possibility said beers were mid-strengh and low carb, even if they were full strength, what’s the actual issue here? 

Tom Morris is an absolute hack.

No brainer ... he presented poorly at preseason & now in rehab missing most of first 1/2 of the season .. as a former captain & leader would you not want to prepare & be 100%?? FYI shouldn’t be drinking whilst in rehab .. appears has poor behaviours & we gave up a lot for him. His actions show poor respect for his teammates & the club along with their supporters.

He should be talking to Daniel Cross about recovery techniques to get him back as quickly as possible, I highly doubt sinking mutiple pints on a Sunday arvo would be a part of it. I’m not necessarily saying footy players shouldn’t be allowed to drink a beer every now and then but when you’ve had an inauspicious start to your career at a new club and already had your professionalism called into question I’d imagine you’d want to do everything in your power to put your best foot forward. 

If he really wants to buy into the club he should be at Casey supporting his teammates. I’m hoping that will be one of the first directives that his teammates say to him, if he’s not going to be home recovering he should be supporting his teammates at Casey. 

And he should be ditching the booze for the foreseeable future. Get some bloody professionalism Steve.

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition t

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s

    SKIN THE CATS by Whispering Jack

    The task ahead for the Demons as they wend their way down the Princes Freeway to Geelong on Saturday night will be to skin the Cats. For them to come away with the points from this game would mark an historic occasion for the club as it will finish on top of the ladder for the first time since its last premiership year, 1964. And it was in that year, that a trip to Corio Bay to meet the reigning premiers in Round 12, was one of the catalysts for Melbourne’s surge to the flag. It was a top o

    REACH FOR THE STARS by George on the Outer

    It was a game of great significance for the Melbourne Football Club. A win would see them keep top spot on the ladder with one round remaining. To achieve top place in the Round for Reach when we are all inspired to “Be Like Jim” and reach for the stars was a great way of honouring one of our heroes. All the better given that it was done by way of an emphatic 41 point win against Adelaide! It is worth remembering that, but for the umpiring mistake in the previous encounter with the Crows, t

    A lot of water has passed under Princes Bridge in the five years since Melbourne last met Adelaide on the MCG. The Crows were riding high at the time while the Demons were mid-table and scrambling for a win to stay in the race for the finals. The 30,000 fans who had tickets to the game were thoroughly entertained by a close, high scoring affair that ended in tears for fans of the home team. Not even an eight-goal second term could help them.   Times have changed.    In the fi

    ELECTRIFYING by George On The Outer

    What more can they throw at the Demons of 2021? Covid restrictions, hubs, aircraft circling between airports before landing for games and now a match stopped for 30 minutes to give a flagging opponent its second wind? To date, none of those distractions has swayed the team from their winning objectives. The game against West Coast in Perth can be marked on their report card as another positive outcome after yet another test. There was much at stake for both sides.  Melbourne had t

    When the combatants that are due to face off on Monday night at Optus Stadium last met, it was 11 days after the World Health Organization had declared the Covid19 outbreak a global pandemic. In Australia, the first cases had just come to light, including visiting US actors Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson, the toilet paper panic was in full flight and the world was starting to reel in anticipation of impending disaster.
