No he had to come from a poor background with a infamous father, many recruiters look at potential draftees families, am sure many kids from his background have been marked don't recruit, comes from a bad family.

Maybe you should take a leaf from the BLM playbook and use this excuse to riot, score a new TV, bash a few white folk and burn down the MCG.

The lack of self awareness and hypocrisy of the preaching Left is astounding.

Are you serious? "people on this forum need a reality check" bla bla....

The whole point of this forum is to come here and take cheap shots at the opposition when they are down and laugh at their ignominy rather than turning on our own. Maybe you are unaware of the history of the rivalry between melbourne and collingwood?

We can use any mainstream social / liberal narrative we like to tell our story, which is what it is - a story.

If you come here for a correct and deep social analysis you have come to the wrong place.

Go back to QAnon for that.

Even though i think Eddie should go I dont think sacking him is the way to go he should resign under his own steam and show he is at fault for allowing this culture to continue to fester at the club.Giving a nick name to a player is fine as long as its not done with malice ,example bob Skilton was nick named chimp because of his appearance but with no malice intended.Its not just racism at collingwood its their supporters , members and admin who have no respect for anyone outside of collingwood ,a law unto themselves.My wife and I were guests in the members in 80s ,we took the abuse for awhile mainly aimed at my wife (apparently you are not allowed to be good looking girl) totally lost it when a toothless wonder grabbed her bum,my collingwood mates were big blokes and fought our way back into the bar wasnt much better in there .Its the culture all round the club that has been built up over many years of no respect for anything or anyone,thats why they are hated by  every other club across the afl

Took a long time for the penny to drop. Sometimes people need a good public kick up the proverbial to wake up to themselves.

Good point fd. Endured a similar experience to yours in the 90s. Location was the MCG in the Southern Stand where Collingwood members were guests at a luncheon before the game in rooms behind us. These men were dressed like businessmen, suits, ties etc. Now you would think their behaviour would be appropriate to the fact they had been invited to a formal lunch and to listen to speeches given by various people from the AFL. But no. They acted like ferals let loose for the day. Banging on the glass and yelling abuse at us while they were downing the free booze. When they came out to their seats for the game it only got worse. One ahole was abusing two little kids ( Melbourne supporters/members) seated across the aisle from him so much they were in tears. He was finally taken away by security, still swearing and raving, although they took their sweet time about it, and only when we complained. It seemed like no one wanted to do anything against these ba#$ard$. 

It was shocking. What I found most shocking was MFC let it happen and did nothing to control these people. The Collingwood arrogance was astounding. It was like they knew they were untouchable.

The Collingwood degeneracy transcends race, colour and creed.

Let us not forget the cowardly filth supporters who attacked Nathan Jones dad in the MCG carpark as a very young Zak Jones looked on helplessly.

Also clearly recall them spitting on Allen Jakovich at Victoria park and no doubt countless other players.

I actually knew those guys, went to school with them. I will tell you now it wasn't the first time they had done something like that either, just the first time they got caught.

It was a pretty sad family background, mum was a heroin addict and the dad spent most of their childhood in prison for a pretty high profile shooting.

In the early 1990's I was a part-time taxi driver. One Saturday morning I was hailed by three 'ladies' at the Elizabeth Street exit of Flinders Street Station. I drove north, reached La Trobe Street to to a right hand turn - the dreaded hook turn - and because of Vic Market there was a lot of traffic. A 'hero' decided to run the light and he got stuck halfway, blocking La Trobe Street traffic heading East, and ruining my opportunity to do my turn. I mumbled 'Knuckf...le' and eventually was able to deliver the ladies to Victoria Park. The Lady in the front passenger seat paid and before she got out she said, I also which to protest at the disgusting language you used in the city. I looked her in the eye and said, Please, go gather your fine ladies, get them back to the safety of my car, you are about to enter the Armageddon of filth. You ain't heard nothing yet...

Interesting hearing Virginia Trioli interview Taylor Adams this morning.

A real interviewer asking pertinent questions that our footy journos wouldn't even come close to asking.

She threw the grenades and let them hang out there for a bit but in the end let him off the hook.

He's not the sharpest tool but did his best to tow the company line.

A rabbit in the spotlight.

She didn't go in for the kill but left enough out there for you to draw the conclusion...

Yeah I know who the the scumbags father was. Not sure if its common knowledge or not.  Amazing that he was ever allowed back out on the streets after the damage he did to his poor victim and how high profile a case it was, but thats the Victorian criminal 'justice' system for you.

    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

    When the combatants that are due to face off on Monday night at Optus Stadium last met, it was 11 days after the World Health Organization had declared the Covid19 outbreak a global pandemic. In Australia, the first cases had just come to light, including visiting US actors Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson, the toilet paper panic was in full flight and the world was starting to reel in anticipation of impending disaster.
