Saw that, don’t know exactly what happened. They were seated in level 2 of Northern and Melbourne fans from Level 1 were looking up and cheering the eviction.

Edit: Isn’t Level 2 Northern a premium reserved seating area for us?

Was in the bay next to me. There was a female Dees supporter evicted with two males. One of the guys was a Giants fan the other had a Tigers beanie. I didn't notice them until they were ejected. They were in the front row and they were remonstrating with people on the bottom level.

The bloke had a Tigers beanie with a Giants jumper. Nuffie. 

 

It is a premium members area, there was a girl who was a Melbourne member with the two. 

 

My understanding is that it was being a friend day. There were a few others in that area mouthing off. I don’t know why they’d want to sit in the area, but to give ppl [censored]

 

I sit on the MCC side of the fence and you could sense a fair bit of unrest in that area

Yeah I was there down below, they were giving it to the Melbourne supporters all day, being total peanuts. It was actually quite funny when they were evicted

I was there on level 1 underneath these big mouths in their early twenties. Two Giants fans, one Tiger fan and a female fan in Melbourne gear (?!). Didn't stop mouthing off, targeting us members below. Couldn't concentrate on the game, could only hear one bloke's loud voice talking sh#t like a broken record. Some young children around us were getting upset and supporters nearby were giving it back to the idiots, but I knew that would only encourage them. Three police officers finally removed them two at a time to loud cheers. However ten minutes later they were back and started again. When I went upstairs to the ladies I saw two police officers coming down the stairs (they were only coming down to protect the ground from people running onto it as it turned out) and I spoke to the male officer asking him why the troublemakers were back upstairs. His reply was yes they are allowed to. What kind of answer was this? I just shook my head and walked on.

They wonder why there is trouble late in the game and after the game. Because they do not practice prevention. Tempers could have got out of hand if these fools had decided to come down and if they had been drinking. But no, protecting the ground from anyone deciding to jump the fence too early before it was time to do kick to kick on the 'G was more important I guess. What is the point in reporting unsociable behaviour if nothing is done about it. Honestly, going to the football is becoming less enjoyable and I feel sorry for the kids. It wasn't fun for them being mocked just for following their team.

They were drinking, heavily. They were complete peanuts. So was the Melbourne supporting girl who brought them with her. The security at the G is completely useless, as are the police. I’d still like to know how they were sitting in a premium members area. All I can think of is that their Melbourne supporting friend had leant them memberships.

This is appalling. I suspected they were drunkards and to see a Melbourne supporter screaming at fellow supporters was a disgrace. The attitude of the police officer I spoke to was disappointing. He couldn't be bothered with my question. He only wanted to stand next to the gate at the fence to stop people going on to the ground too early for the kick to kick. Priorities? 

The checking of people's memberships this year has been terrible. We have had all manner of people waltzing into our members only area wearing opposition gear and even sometimes carrying beers, with no one stopping them. I don't know why the standards have slipped this year so much.

did they have drums for the marching season.

Nothing like the Battle of the Boyne to get the tempers flying.

On a completely different note if you haven't seen Derry Girls it is magnifcent television.

I can top that.

Saw a guy in one of the bars in the MCC walk out wearing a GWS beanie and a Gold Coast scarf.

And we sit here wondering how a Liberal/National party was returned to office...

Yeah, saw it. They were eventually permitted to go back and sit down, then kept much quieter.

The woman wearing Melbourne colours was screaming down to level 1 challenging fans to come up for a barney. And the police woman was standing 2m from her at the time.

I observed the big guy wearing GWS colours walking into the bar area at half time loudly baiting any Melbourne fan he could find. Waving his arms around yelling taunts.

Peanuts like these should've been kicked out earlier in the game. 

And the AFL wonders why there are fights at the footy...

One of the special things about Australian sport has been the mixing of supporters at games.

It would be a shame for it to be lost.

Seriously this is why i would rather watch games at the Pub on a big screen. 

I used to go weekly, now it is too expensive in a cab to get to and from the G in heavy traffic and i just don’t like crowds anymore, far to agro. 

Years ago crowds had a go at each other, but it was often funny. That element has gone now. 

Crowds are angry 😡

If they’re creating that many issues and having their details taken, kick them out. It’s not that hard.

There are fights because another 'tough guy'  can't or won't ignore the taunts, obviously nobody took the bait

All sounds pretty stupid to me. Especially with an attendance where all you needed to worry about was whether you closed the gate behind you when you left.

    RED AND BLUEPRINT 2019 by Whispering Jack

    The rusty red of the McDonnell Ranges and the blue skies above them provided the perfect backdrop that summed up everything about the Melbourne Football Club’s 2019 season. It set out the perfect red and blueprint for the club’s horror year. The club’s previous season was one of great promise but it ended in a calamitous way in Perth with an 11 goal defeat at the hands of the ultimate premiership side, the West Coast Eagles in a game where the Demons’ first goal came early in the third quar

    WINDY DAY FOOTY by KC from Casey

    Windy day footy has always been the domain of those who play the game hard: on days when the breeze gusts all over the place and the ground has been sodden by recent rains, the player needs to get all aspects of his game together and be hard of body and mind, to concentrate and attack the football. The Casey Demons came out on their own deck in such conditions and under a mainly sunny sky and gave it a crack for half a game but they lost sight of the fundamentals of playing hard in difficul

    TRECIMATED by George on the Outer

    A little more than two months have passed since Melbourne met and came close to beating the reigning premier West Coast in the preliminary final replay over in the West. At the time, the Demons had three wins on the board and now, nine rounds later and going into this week’s match, they have managed to add a paltry two more wins to the ledger.  The Eagles, in contrast, have moved to within percentage of second spot on the ladder despite their loss at home this week against Collingwood.

    SAME STORY, DIFFERENT SONG by George on the Outer

    Melbourne was still suffering from the same old story - a lack of AFL capable players from which to choose at the selection table - and the Western Bulldogs got to sing their song again. But wait, that wasn’t the Doggie’s song we’ve been hearing for the last 30 years, it was some other concoction and no-one knew the words to it but whatever it was, they got to mumble it with gusto after a huge 8 point win! The sad thing is that the Bulldogs (or Footscray or whatever they choose to call

    DOGGED by KC from Casey

    On Sunday, the Casey Demons met the Footscray VFL under the roof at the same venue where their nemesis took them down in the 2017 grand final and the result left them with the same feeling of disappointment - this time with a seven point defeat that ended the club’s four game winning streak and made things a lot harder in terms of playing in this year’s final series.   And, as has so often happened this year, the Demons let the game get away from them with but failing to take advantage of th

    BARKING MAD by The Oracle

    There was so much hype proliferating about Melbourne’s prospects for season 2019 a mere four months ago, that one could be forgiven for thinking anyone contemplating the prospect of a bottom four finish for the Demons at the time was barking mad. That however, is the prospect that they face at the moment and a loss to the Bulldogs on Sunday would make it a virtual certainty.  The club’s downward spiral after several years of moving steadily on an upward trajectory has been well documented i

    THE MELBOURNE WAY by George on the Outer

    Much has been made by the coaching staff of playing a “Melbourne way” style of play. The nail-biting finish by the Demons in the dying minute of the game could not have been any more the case in point.   Leading by a game-high 38 points late in the third quarter, and by five goals at the final change, this should have been the catalyst for a romp home to an easy win.   But that is not the “Melbourne way” and the supporters, especially those with a severe case of MFCSS (aka intense inse

    PINK AND BLUE CAN’T KICK TRUE by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons took on the Northern Blues at home on Saturday  in a game that was crucial in terms of their hopes for September and they took away the valuable four points on offer after some worrying moments. Most of those worries were self-inflicted as a result of some shocking inaccuracy in front of goal, sloppiness in play and a little bit of indiscipline that all combined to make the game a lot closer than it should have been. The final scoreboard showed the Demons winning the P

    GO FIGURE by Sam the Stats Man

    In May last year, a rampant Melbourne side demolished Carlton by 109 points at the MCG. The Demons did as they pleased and ran rings against a young, abysmal Blues combination. The Dees led in virtually every key performance indicator, notably entering the inside 50 metre mark 63 times to 33 and the superiority of their attack was highlighted by a 74% shooting accuracy rate (to 47%).  A little more than a year later the two sides face each other for the first time since that rout and the ta

    GORN AT THE GABBA by George on The Outer

    With Melbourne leading the Brisbane Lions in the second term, and the game in the balance, a Max Gawn ankle injury signalled that the Demons were as good as gorrnnn for the match. Without a suitable 2nd ruck and (once again) forced to use either Tom McDonald, Tim Smith or Sam Weidemann in the ruck the Demons found themselves without a forward line that could kick a winning score. Not that anything really changed, as the forward line has been completely dysfunctional all season and one

    GAMBIT by KC from Casey

    The opening gambit of Saturday afternoon’s game told us everything about who would be its main players and who would come out on top. The Casey Demons were eager to turn the tables on the Box Hill Hawks who beat them in last year’s grand final and then gave them a first up mauling at City Oval, Box Hill. Kicking with the aid of a strong breeze in the opening term, Braydon Preuss’ first hit out went straight to the diminutive Jay Kennedy Harris who pounced with a 70 metre shot at goal that sailed

    MURDER BY NUMBERS by Sam the Stats Man

    The respective ladder positions of this week’s combatants tell the story of one side on the rise and the other in steep decline. Since their most recent meeting which took place early last year, the Dees and the Lions have changed positions. They are opposed to each again on the former’s home turf with the locals in fine fettle after blowing St Kilda off the park at Marvel Stadium.  The Lions’ home ground advantage has been a major consideration so far this year. They have won five out of s
