We could just use Hawks:

- Dynamic: Will will be amazing in patches and horrendous in others, you will never know what to expect

- Respectful: We will respect the right of opposition teams to pull apart our game plan at will and never shall we waver in our belief that we need more inside mids

- Selfless: Every other club comes first

- Supportive: When our supporters are loosing their mind due to our on field performance, we will empathize with you and tell you we are hurting to

- Relentless: We will handball at every opportunity and will relentlessly put our own under pressure

Mission statements are just another example of corporate wankery invading sport... 

They dont do a damn thing to improve performance, and the vast majority of employees couldnt tell you what their organizations Mission Statement was.

We dont need one. Actions speak louder than words so the saying goes.

wrong. mission statements may be "wanky" but a clear one has buy-in, is easy to understand, and is inspiring.

They provide no measurable benefit that i know of. "Buy in" cant be scientifically measured because its based on feeling, not facts. 

Be happy to read any research you know of that shows they have a positive benefit to any organization who institues them.

Glad you agree that they are "Wanky" though :)

Don’t agree it’s what a club/organisation stands for & values etc! It’s what all their decisions they make should be referenced to if not what do you stand for??? Agree getting buy in from all isn’t adhere to & in the case of a footy club if players don’t buy in say F off!

Yeah but it doesnt mean that at all. It is what the Management of an organization tells their potential customers they stand for regardless of whether or not they mean it.

Pick a random number of fortune 500 companies and read them..... Practically all generic waffle.

An organization isnt just its leadership/management, its the employees who make the difference.... the same employees who dont know, and most likely dont give a stuff what their management says they "stand for". If you could show me a single organization of reasonable size, where more than 5% can tell you the mission statement is i would be genuinely shocked. The vast majority of employees couldnt care less if they had a Mission Statement or not. Its corporate wankery.

P.S. Tell me honestly if you think we would have won premiership in the last 10 years if we had a mission statement, because that is the only reason we exist... to win premierships.

P.P.S. Companies stand for profit. Profit for the owners and profit for the investors. Remove the profit and no amount of flowery Mission Statements will save it. The only "organization" who could write a genuine mission statement is probably a non-profit/charity because they wouldnt have to lie about money not being the main aim.

Honestly .. I’ve supported the club my whole life & member for 20yr+ .. we have been a rudderless club for decades & Watch Norm Smith in 65 when he was sacked & his own words “we are slipping as a footy club” Peter Jackson is the only CEO I’ve been confident, Pert time will tell . All of our fixes prior to PJ were just band aid approaches .. we don’t have a proper home base.. look at the pies home base!  So what do we stand for if you don’t have a mission statement for your club?

You stand for what you personally stand for. That doesnt change by writing it down using far more words than you need to, to impress other people. You either stand for it or you dont. Words can suggest you "stand for" anything. Actions show the real truth. That doesnt mean you failed to "buy in", it probably means you are happy to collect your paycheck each week, and leave the wanky [censored] to middle management types who are all for climbing the ladder by using Rah-Rah statements to stand out.

Mission statements are worthless word salad.

Quite right, Ding.   And if you don't stand for something, you'll fall for anything.

    SOCIAL DISTANCING by George on the Outer

    It was good to see the MFC players practicing the directives about social distancing at the game against West Coast.  Pity was that they continued to do so after the first bounce of the ball, as they allowed numerous WCE players run around un-hindered, with not a Melbourne player within 1.5 metres of them! They then found themselves looking at nearly a 5 goal deficit at the first break, which was to be essentially the final margin for the game. It is difficult to judge exactly what is going

    BEST IN SHOW by Whispering Jack

    I am writing this knowing that the AFL has deemed that the opening round of competition will proceed but fully believing that it should not.  The world is going through cataclysmic change as a result of the overwhelming spread of the Covid-19 virus and I agree that a distraction like sport would be good for the public. However, while the physical threat to the population is bad enough, there are other  issues to be addressed including the mental health of the community and the effects on th

    TASSIE DEVILS by Van Demon

    If you were looking for something new from the Demons that wasn’t there last year, you didn’t have to look further than the perfectly trimmed grass surface of UTAS Stadium last night as the team steamrolled the Hawks to record a comprehensive 32-point victory to complete their Marsh Community Series commitments for 2020. One new thing was the fact that for the second Marsh game in a row, the team finished full of running and they dominated the second half without the presence or the dominan

    SOUTH OF THE BORDER by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons will go into their final Marsh Series match with a strong lineup against the Hawks in Tasmania. Both Max Gawn and Steven May, who were recovering from injuries in first Marsh Series match, have both been named. It is unclear whether Max will be on restricted minutes and will likely get breaks in the ruck with Sam Weideman and rookie Luke Jackson getting their turns in the middle. Angus Brayshaw will be getting his first taste of competitive football despite playing in last week’s

    KANGAROO CAUGHT by Whispering Jack

    There was a fair amount of debate in our area as to whether the game warranted a full blown match report because it was felt that it was really an elevated version of a training session with match simulation but against a team in opposition colours. Although notionally the stronger side, North seemed to be using the occasion for the purpose of working on aspects of their game plan, one of the features of which seemed to be based on taking the longest possible route out of defence and good luck w

    JUST AN ABERRATION by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne unveiled its top recruits with new fitness boss Darren Burgess and mid-sized bull Christian Petracca sharing top billing in the team’s Marsh Community Series opener in front of 3,095 football starved fans at Casey Fields and thousands of others watching on screens of various shapes and sizes.  What they saw was a different Melbourne to the one that failed to run out its JLT Series games last year and then crashed in a heap early in the season proper with performances lacking the z

    CROWDOWN by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons open their 2020 season account with a "home" game against the Adelaide Crows at Casey Fields. It’s been more than 5 and half agonising months for the team and supporters who are eager to atone for the disappointing 2019 season which saw the Dees go from Preliminary Finalist to 2nd bottom on the ladder. The preseason campaign has been a hard slog with the addition of respected High Performance Manager Darren Burgess. We caught a glimpse of the gut busting sessions in the Melbourne

    THE YEAR THE SKY FELL by The Oracle

    After a number of years of linear movement up the ladder, the Melbourne Football Club unexpectedly went into serious decline in 2019, slumping from fourth to 17th in a season that coach Simon Goodwin described “a complete wipe-out”. Those around the club who tried to analyse the apocalyptic events that unfolded during the year were hard pressed to find a single reason for the debacle but the most plausible explanation was that the club’s troubles stemmed from a lack of fitness and injuries that

    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
