No Gawn singing of our theme song??

Recommended Posts

Has the club or Gawn/Viney commented on this,  understand strange times but sure a lack of leadership of Viney to halt up the players and wait for Gawn! Didn’t see tommlison or Langdon in the middle either, were they included? These are the 1% strong clubs get right!

There was at least 4 players not around when they sang the song. They did it again once everyone was there but pretty poor form to go without several players.

Someday, someone at the Club will say, enough and make a statement about leadership, respect and how good Clubs operate. Gawn needs to understand it may seem minor but this is screaming, stand up and put the kids in their place.

No way to really dress this up.

Its a very poor effort from the players to not wait for their captain.

It looked to just be a mistake. Players all got into the rooms, bit unsure what to do given no one is allowed to put their arms around each other anymore, even though they all tackle each other during the game....

Storm in a tea cup type stuff.

It was a strange end as it seemed the players were almost not even going to sing the song given how poor their second half was.

I didn't think they should sing it.

Although there were a few debutants and new players winning their first game with the Dees so understand why they did.

Total BS.

Players were over excited and distancing so didn't realise who was missing. Gawn made a joke of it as he broke into the song with the three others who were late.

Nothing to this.

But you just know that some on here will do everything they can to ensure that there is something in it.

It'll be beaten up in the media but the video footage is pretty damn cringeworthy. Just sloppy and shouldn't happen.

They were waiting for him to come into the rooms to sing it but after he didn’t show, they assumed he was already gawn.

JFC people will complain about anything. Tomlinson said no big deal on ABC Radio today, so good enough for me. 

Is there anything else the wrist slashers can pot the club for today?

I can hardly wait for Garry Lyons interpretation of it on the couch. Healy will be egging him on like no tmrw.

It’s not the end of the world but it’s the 1% that add up ... Saw a swans win a few years ago and a young player started walking towards the race & Jared McVeigh pulled him up saying wait for the rest of the players .. commentators all said that’s leadership & culture.. understand it’s strange times now but I’d say successful clubs would not of allowed this to happen

Posters might well be right that it mean nothing but this club has a habit of lot of little issues. May drinking; not wanting to do pre season camp, Covid-19 breach, singing the song without the captain. Can you imagine Tigers doing it no way. Little thing matter and poor leadership by Viney let face it Max is hard to miss.

It’s a 0%er, so it adds up to zero. Usually the blokes wait on the field and chuck footies in to the crowd and stuff while the skip or BOG does a post match interview on the ground, then they all go off together. No crowd to speak of so they all went off without Gawn while he did the interview, and forgot.

It was clearly an honest mistake.

The song was very similar to how the NRL teams do it. Not having the captain there is not a good look and the second  time they did it didn't have the same feel. I have seen players miss out on winning celebrations and as much as they say it didn't matter, it still leaves a bad taste in their mouth.

    STATE OF DEESASTER by the Oracle

    Melbourne’s circus caravan rolls into Adelaide on Wednesday night, an event that will put shivers up the spine of every Crows’ supporter as they look directly into the face of disaster. The flakey Demons left their home town a month ago and proceeded to rough up the Gold Coast Suns and Hawthorn in Sydney before moving on to the sunny Queensland where they missed by a bee’s diaphragm against the more or less local second-on-ladder Brisbane Lions. Then, they had to butter up against the top t

    OVERPOWERED by George on the Outer

    In a dismal display against Port Adelaide, Melbourne showed it had learnt nothing from their previous week’s loss to Brisbane. Port, in contrast, after losing to St.Kilda, addressed their failings, and as a result made the Demons look like a second-rate side.  Melbourne failed to score a goal in the first quarter, and the first time it seriously troubled the goal umpire was saved until a minute before half-time.  Did it get any better?  No with their meagre three goals for the sec

    DESPERATION OF THE MOMENT by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s recent win against Hawthorn highlighted how important Max Gawn’s ruck domination is for the team. A week later however, that domination continued but its effect was totally blunted by the Brisbane Lions midfield and, as a consequence, what could have been an easy win over a leading AFL contender turned into a disappointing but close loss and a sense of desperation now looms over the club as the halfway mark of the season approaches. This week’s opponent in Port Adelaide also und

    THE FOUR POINT FAIL by George on the Outer

    Melbourne went down by 4 points in a thrilling finish against Brisbane, but they failed by more than the 4 points.     They also failed to score the 4 points necessary to keep them in the race for the finals, and now find themselves sitting 6 points outside the top 8, but effectively 2 games outside (even though they have a game in hand).   The Demons had more than enough opportunities to win.  Six very easy shots on goal failed to bother the goal umpire with a major and ultimate

    NORTH OF THE BORDER PART 2 by The Oracle

    The travelling COVID circus moves north of the border yet again and, unless at some time in the near future, Papua New Guinea opens its borders, this could be the last time this phenomenon happens. And as fortune would dictate, the resurgent Demons are walking directly into the sights of the locals from the bright lights of Brizvegas to Carrara - the scene of some long-forgotten (and deservedly so) battles with one of the Lions’ former incarnations, namely, the Brisbane Bears. But unli

    ON THE NOSE by George on the Outer

    One of the Hawthorn Football Club’s valued sponsors is Azep® Nasal Spray and given the thrashing handed out to the Hawks in today’s game, it would appear that they need a huge supply of the sponsor’s product because they are simply on the nose. This condition was caused by the sheer dominance of the Demons, led magnificently by skipper Max Gawn with 27 hitouts and 22 disposals including two clearances. Around him in the middle were Christian Petracca with 29 touches, Clayton Oliver (also on

    THE PREMIER LEAGUE by Whispering Jack

    So the new man under the pump is Clarko, which demonstrates how sad but predictable the football media is these days. In an age where each AFL team’s form can be topsy turvy and unpredictability is the order of the day, the coach of a team that has played five out of the top six teams from the previous season and sits with a 3/3 win loss record is this week’s whipping boy.   This comes admittedly on the back of a bad fortnight from the Hawks who in recent years have exhibited an enormous

    SUNSMART by George on the Outer

    If you don’t want to get sunburnt, you follow the Sunsmart rules.  Melbourne took the advice and with their season on the line, avoided getting burnt by the Gold Coast Suns, with a gripping 17 point win. It was a match that could have gone either way, with the sides within a kick of each other for all but the final minutes of the final quarter. Melbourne had stretched the lead earlier in the game to 18 points, but that quickly evaporated to a neck and neck race to the finish.  Finally,

    NORTH OF THE BORDER by The Oracle

    The outcomes of Melbourne’s recent games against the Gold Coast Suns are a pretty good barometer of how the teams are faring. The Demons easily accounted for them twice in 2018, the last win being a 96-point cakewalk at the MCG in Round 20 when they scored a whopping 21.17.143 to 7.5.47. Ironically, Melbourne’s score of 9.3.57 at the first break that afternoon is leading its highest score for a full game to date this year by 3 points. In those days, they played fast, skillful football, moved th

    PACK YOUR BAGS by George on The Outer

    The scene was captured by the TV camera’s before the match with a view of the Melbourne side’s bags packed next to the team bus to facilitate their flight up north to the AFL hub where they will play their next matches. However, on the basis of the efforts against Richmond, unless things change, and change rapidly, there will be some who will be told to pack their bags on a more permanent basis. Once again, the supporters got much the same story from this match against Richmond, as

    SOUTH OF THE BORDER by the Oracle

    Thankfully they moved this week’s game from Sydney where the sun shines and the virus breeds ever so slowly and almost nobody returns a positive test. The change of fixture comes at precisely the right time to allow everyone in town to head to the MCG on Sunday at around 3:30pm, not to catch up with what’s going on inside the ground but rather, to do what’s fashionable for woke folk in 2020 — pulling down statues. It’s time for Kevin Bartlett and Leigh Matthews to go but you can’t touch Norm Smi

    LESSONS IN LOSING by George on the Outer

    Turn up for the game and look like you want to win it.  Melbourne lost this game to Geelong, a game after a couple of extended breaks, looking like they were at the end of a 22 game season. Right from the start there was a lack of intensity across the board, as the Demons played exactly the type of game that the ageing Geelong list wanted. Geelong repeatedly played possession footy, to avoid having to run those ageing legs, something that Melbourne failed to exploit.  To use the oft quot
