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.

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.

    THE ICING ON THE QUAKE by Whispering Jack

    It’s not Christmas yet but if the Melbourne wins its last game of the 2021 season, then many of its fans will be celebrating early. There already are some parts of our town where the pending festivity is preordained. Houses are decked out with red and blue banners and streamers, some of which appeared as early as last Saturday week, on the morning after the Demons’ magnificent 83-point crushing of Geelong in their preliminary final at Optus Stadium. While it’s great to see the numbers of lo

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition t

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s

    SKIN THE CATS by Whispering Jack

    The task ahead for the Demons as they wend their way down the Princes Freeway to Geelong on Saturday night will be to skin the Cats. For them to come away with the points from this game would mark an historic occasion for the club as it will finish on top of the ladder for the first time since its last premiership year, 1964. And it was in that year, that a trip to Corio Bay to meet the reigning premiers in Round 12, was one of the catalysts for Melbourne’s surge to the flag. It was a top o

    REACH FOR THE STARS by George on the Outer

    It was a game of great significance for the Melbourne Football Club. A win would see them keep top spot on the ladder with one round remaining. To achieve top place in the Round for Reach when we are all inspired to “Be Like Jim” and reach for the stars was a great way of honouring one of our heroes. All the better given that it was done by way of an emphatic 41 point win against Adelaide! It is worth remembering that, but for the umpiring mistake in the previous encounter with the Crows, t

    TICKETS PLEASE by The Oracle

    A lot of water has passed under Princes Bridge in the five years since Melbourne last met Adelaide on the MCG. The Crows were riding high at the time while the Demons were mid-table and scrambling for a win to stay in the race for the finals. The 30,000 fans who had tickets to the game were thoroughly entertained by a close, high scoring affair that ended in tears for fans of the home team. Not even an eight-goal second term could help them.   Times have changed.    In the fi

    ELECTRIFYING by George On The Outer

    What more can they throw at the Demons of 2021? Covid restrictions, hubs, aircraft circling between airports before landing for games and now a match stopped for 30 minutes to give a flagging opponent its second wind? To date, none of those distractions has swayed the team from their winning objectives. The game against West Coast in Perth can be marked on their report card as another positive outcome after yet another test. There was much at stake for both sides.  Melbourne had t
