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.

    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

    CHANGES 2019 by The Oracle

    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. It was a disgraceful performance, which started with a disgracefu

    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? As a consequence, the person re

    A LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE by KC from Casey

    Two clubs that have been hard hit by injury recently took part in a dour battle under dark clouds and, with intermittent showers falling, it wasn’t a pretty game at Victoria Park on Sunday. Despite all that, the Casey Demons added a little ray of sunshine to their day to get the job done over a "traditional" rival with a 15 point victory over Collingwood VFL that breathed life back into their season. There were a few highlights at the ground that in past days has seen many titanic batt

    THE RETRO ROUND by George on the Outer

    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 PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    Thanks to Demonlanders for their input into this week’s preview. Ralphius Maximus is short and bittersweet: We'll crack in at the bounce to create a contest, win our share of the ball, butcher the forward movement and get scored on easily from the intercepts. Not that hard to predict. Big Demon says: Unfortunately Collingwood will win because they have a lot more to play for. We will be good in parts but really the season is well over so we will have to put up with those bell

    WHAT, NO BLOOD? by George on the Outer

    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. That should never have happ

    A MAN’S ERRAND by KC from Casey

    A young and undermanned Casey Demons were sent out on Saturday to the Swinburne Centre in the shadows of the MCG on a man’s errand against a very experienced Richmond VFL combination which is the clear ladder leader and fielded no less than 18 AFL listed players. It was expected to be a rout and the Tigers made easy work of it in the early stages when they held a 26 point lead by quarter time. To their credit however, the Demons weathered the storm and kept their opponents within the range
