Jesus Christ the reaction to that article from all the male posters is the epitome of why we need a bigger push for equality. 

Honestly, some of you blokes don’t get it. What questions do you think the first female pres of the oldest club is going to get? What answers to those questions should she give? Of course she gives a

I noticed during the Team song that Glen was there, wearing his Scarf, i do hope there is no bad blood. We don’t need it.  We need everyone together to get the elusive 13th

Correct.

That Bartlett blast was a thing of beauty IMO.

Yes, it was so good. 

I wrote a letter to Pert after that debacle stating I wouldn't renew my membership until the club did something about on field performance.

Great to see the president call it out publicly.

Great to see us (and our women's team) playing great footy.

Isn’t it strange that the new club president hasn’t addressed the supporter base? 

It’s now been almost 1 month into the role and the members haven’t heard a peep from Kate. 
 

does she need a reminder that she represents the members?

What the hell do people want? I for one don’t want to hear from the president unless something really good (home base) or really bad (sacking) is going on. 
Quiet achievers at board level suit me just fine. Not everyone wants to be an Eddie or a Kennett. Some people just go about their business without being flogs.

I have no problem with quiet achievers, but at least release a short video introducing yourself to us the members.

I'm very superstitious...we've been winning whilst she's been quiet, no peeps.

Let's keep it at no peeps, never tempt the fates...

I really don't care we haven't heard from our president. At the moment she really doesn't need to say much. On field results are enough. 

I'm not sure how much other presidents are communicating with there fans. I mean we don't really hear from Peggy or the dogs president or the geelong one or really other clubs. Well apart from Jeff. Now that Ed has gone they all seem quiet.

Yes, what an amazing motivator he was. In the fortnight following Barlett's 'blast of beauty' we smashed the 17th and 18th teams (with a combined win-loss record at the time of 3-21) off the park - by almost ten goals apiece! - and then followed it up with victory over a wildly undermanned arch-nemesis Collingwood (injuries be damned, as they don't count when we suffered a spate of them in 2019).

Unfortunately, we fell short to the Bulldogs and Sydney and Fremantle over the space of the next four weeks, but that wasn't related to Bartlett at all - as they were all challenging for a spot in the top ten and is Goodwin the right guy thread? And now that girl president is going to undo all that tough-speaking home-truth stuff that Bartlett did over the past eight years to get us to our 6-0 start this season. Folly!

Hi, my name's Kate, I have a business background and grew up loving the Demons.  Robbie Flower was my favorite player, but I also use to love watching Rod Grinter go about his craft on the MCG on a Saturday afternoon during the late 80s and 90s.  Did I mention my dad was a dentist?

 

... I'm sure there's more to it than that and I agree by the way.  You would actually think she and the board would want to be doing something to promote her profile and let the members get to know her, since she will need to be elected sooner or later, come the time.

You never hear from the Melbourne storm chairman much. The best team for the past decade with the best coach in Australia. Maybe on our next home game radio stations need to interview her before the game or do a 1/2 time piece.

What the hell do i want her to do??? How about a simple introduction to the club and members. Maybe a little summary of who she is and what she is looking forward to. Is that too much to ask for the person leading the club?

    HOT PIES FREEZE DEES by George on the Outer

    In the Annual Big Freeze game in support of Neale Daniher's fight against MND, it was Collingwood who froze the ambitions of the Demons, and it now challenges them to thaw out their prospects in the second half of the season. Even though Melbourne opened the scoring account, it was quickly countered by Collingwood, as the Demons appeared flat. And even though they held a minor lead at the first break, it was only through a couple of fortunate efforts, but nothing more.  All around

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne supporters are an unusual lot. Their lived experiences over years of witnessing their team’s humiliation at the hands of the competition’s bullies have left them suspended in a Bizarro World beset by a cognitive distortion know as 'mental filtering'. This is a phenomenon that occurs when people focus exclusively and blindly on long held belief systems. They refuse to accept that conditions have changed so when the evidence is present before their very own eyes, their minds are frozen.

    CHANGES: 2021 MID SEASON by The Oracle 

    Since the end of the 2020 free agency, trade and draft period, AFL clubs have had two further bites of the cherry to top up their lists — the supplemental selection period (SSP) and the 2021 mid-season rookie draft (MSD). The main idea behind both was to enable the fulfillment of immediate needs as a result of injuries or unexpected retirements but this year, we have seen the added dimension of straight out recruitment for the future rather than for now. As a consequence, a number of ready

    LION TAMERS by George On The Outer

    In an enthralling game between two top four sides, it was the Demons who tamed the Lions, and propelled themselves into the position of premiership favourite even though the season is barely past the halfway mark. This is because Melbourne keeps on beating those teams around them who might provide a challenge. Not only that, it keeps winning with emphatic displays of resilience and toughness that have not been seen in a Demons side for many, many years. Challenged in the first half of

    DUELING BANJOS by Whispering Jack

    In the classic Australian poem, A B “Banjo” Paterson sought the answer by letter to a question concerning the whereabouts of a drover named “Clancy”. The response from Clancy’s shearing mate was written with a thumb-nail dipped in tar: “Clancy’s gone to Queensland droving, and we don’t know where he are.” Most of us would have felt a little bit that way earlier in the week wondering about the possible whereabouts of the Melbourne team for this week’s encounter against Brisbane.

    DOGGED DEEFENCE by George on the Outer

    “No-one let the Dogs out” was the Demons response for the (former) top side.  The Melbourne defence, capably lead by Steven May and Jake Lever simply suffocated any hopes that the Western Bulldogs might have had about leading the competition at the mid-way point. Instead, it is the Demons who now sit at the top of the ladder, again a game clear, while their supporters are starting to believe that this side is the real deal.  Pity is that those same supporters couldn’t watch their team demol

    LOOK AWAY DEMON FANS by The Oracle

    Last week I predicted a comfortable Melbourne victory for its game against Adelaide. “Something in the order of 61 points”, I opined. Well, after the game, I checked the wording of my preview very carefully from all angles and I have now concluded that I have to issue an apology to Demon fans. I got it wrong. I’m not bitter and twisted about my error in failing to predict the coaching errors, defensive mistakes, lack of forward pressure and, of course, the complete failure of those officiat

    CALM BEFORE THE CALM by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons overcame a sluggish first half to run over the Sydney Swans in the second to record an emphatic 40 point victory, maintaining their undefeated record and retaining top spot on the VFL ladder. The game originally listed as part of the Round 4 fixture but delayed due to a Covid19 scare in Sydney and the scrappy way in which the teams approached the contest suggested that the players were still in delay mode. This applied in particular to most of the 12 AFL listed Casey player

    NOTHING TO CROW ABOUT by George On The Outer

    Melbourne’s nine game winning streak  came to an end in Adelaide with a one point loss to the Crows. Losing to a team that had only won three games for the season, having lost five in a row was certainly nothing to crow about.  All around the ground players collectively put in their poorest performance for the year.  The loss of Christian Salem before the match was critical, as his replacement Nev Jetta is a mere shadow the player he once was. The mind is still willing, but the body no

    CRYING OVER SPILT MILK by The Oracle

    It had to happen sooner or later. Melbourne has been riding high through the season to date and, with the exception of a small bunch of nuff nuffs who are never satisfied with anything, the club has attracted more positive vibes from the community in these nine weeks than it did in the past decade. So it came as no surprise to see some low grade stirring of the sort which only the media could come up with at a time like this. The on line site Zero Hanger came up with an article that opined,

    CATNIPPED by KC from Casey

    After winning big away from home across the first three rounds of the new look VFL competition, the Casey Demons were forced to dig deep against Geelong VFL at Casey Fields on Saturday. The traditional AFL based teams were evenly matched, fielding ten listed players apiece and this was reflected in the evenness of the game and the final margin which saw the home side leading by a solitary point on the final siren. Casey suffered an early blow when Jake Bowey came off with what ap

    BLUES IN THE RED by George On The Outer

    While the Demons’ undefeated run continues unabated now at 9-0 their emphatic 26 point victory pushed the Blues to their sixth loss for the season and deeper into the red for the year. While Melbourne opened proceedings with an early goal, the Blues responded with the next two to grab an early lead.  However, as has happened in so many games this year, the Demons fought back to lead by just over a goal come the first break. This narrow lead was part of a streak either side of quarter t
