How can we stop idiots on FB posting pics of players Eg O Mac & Goodwin & shaming them??

Sure we are all frustrated & we vent on the club lack of success & opinions of players & coach but shaming them on FB is going too far

It's the world we live in this 21st century. The old saying fits if you cannot take the heat don't go in the kitchen. 

The trouble is the kitchen is destroying resonable discourse and encouraging lunatic theories and non-facts.  I stay out of it (other than here) and heartily wish it would burn down.

I don't disagree with you sue but nothing you or I do will change it, if you are a  high level sports person in any sport simply don't have public social media and don't read it. Now I know that we see on a daily basis that being good at a sport does not make you a rocket scientist. The only suggestion I have is don't go in the kitchen.

I don't go on the MFC/AFL Facebook related groups. I actually hold them in contempt. 

Why any more than here layzie? All social media sites are the same some just a little better than others. It is like worrying about your privacy, it was lost a decade or two ago.

Nah it's just a mind numbing exercise going on there Old Dee. I used to go on a couple but would always leave feeling dumber than when I started. It sounds arrogant but I like talking about football with people who know football. Not so much people who say the most obvious things all the time. Then there's the negatives, as ugly as things get here they multiply 3 times on there.

And that's before all the unregulated, allowing racist comments/hatespeech behaviour.

I must admit I seldom go on facebook sports sites they are as you suggest.

Judging from the consistent dross served up by our players over the past decade and longer it is obvious they are incapable of being shamed for their efforts. It’s like screaming and yelling at the Moon. Nothing to see here.

Is it the inability of supporters to attend matches where you can yell and cheer (i.e provide instant feedback to the players and coaches) which results in the negative side of that pent up activity spilling out onto social media in a more visible and permanent way?

Now I’ve never abused any player or other supporter at a game, however I do miss the rush of a good goal and clapping with the crowd so hard that my hands hurt.

What's wrong with it? These players and coaches get paid a lot of money to perform very poorly. They deserve the criticism, especially when it's effort based and it's the same issues year in year out. 

nothing is wrong with saying anything you would say to their faces

Or perhaps even simply putting your real name to it. I know we mostly have pseudonyms here, but the vile hate on fb and the like is appalling

It would be okay if people were prepared to put names and contact details to their abuse otherwise it is just gutless raving.

Which ones are the worst ones, Mr Old? Any Demon supporter FB accounts that are terrible?

Cannot give you an example of Dees ones because I seldom go on any Mr Shadow I just give them all a wide berth based on what I saw a couple of years ago. Unlike Demonland there is little if any control of the sites and while I am not a fan of censorship I am also not in favour of bullying etc either.  If people had to use their real names etc half the sites would disappear over night. I might add there would be a few on here that would disappear as well.

You misunderstood me I meant ignore the haters Nowadays you have to have a thick skin just do your best and get on with it..

Haters are going to hate the trolls are everywhere no matter what you do.  The best way is to ignore them.

This is what i meant     DERRRRR. you took it the wrong way. I am not a troll l don't support them.

My main issue is the potting of the young blokes with only a few games under their belts.
Clowns want them to be superstars who take the league by storm straight out've the gate.

I dont use facebook but public naming and shaming players on such a major social platform is not good.

But I suppose its kniw different to what mpi st of us (guilty as charged) have done here on demonland. There are a few posters much more levelled headed than myself thay do refrain from dissing players.

Perhaps players should not come to demonland but its harder for them to avoid fb.

Its not easy for supporters of this club not to get frustrated and hence call out non performers.

I havent any answers but I having vented I feel better. Much like naming players after that horrible swans loss.

I could say Ill try not to do it but I know I probably still will.

Jake Lever on bike and walking up n down stairs, yelling out as he does. Melky copped a niggle so ran laps but

    TOUGH KENT'S TRAINING REPORT I journeyed out to Casey today and was fortunate enough to watch two quarters of match simulation. Here is a brief rundown of random occurrences/thoughts. First of all, there was no Jake Lever (ankle) or Joel Smith involved. AMW is still in rehab and was running strongly. It was Blue (Probables) v Red (Possibles) JvR was in blue. Ben Brown, T-Mac, Hibbo and Tom Sparrow were in red. Gus Brayshaw started at half back for blue and stayed there all game.

Williams yelling out to players to get their hands off hips during drills. Gus looks fine to me. Absolutely., first two mins of match sim and his kicking is exquisite on both sides. He’s moving incredibly well.  Some observations from a match sim drill that lasted about 15-20 mins. The purpose se
