When asked "Why aren't aren't you guys up at the snow?" while at a game I like to reply "We don't ski domestic!"

Without getting too political, it’s their disingenuous way of masquerading as ‘working class’ while being the biggest, hypocritical bootlickers of all.🥾👅 News Ltd. has always talked out both side

Wait, are you guys implying The Herald Sun aren't the peak of mature and responsible journalism? Well I never.

Even when we beat the best they still have little digs at us.

Only a Premiership will shut these losers up.

They also couldn’t help themselves disrespecting Nathan Jones by labeling the 300 gamer a perennial loser.

I hate this stereotype of MFC supporters so much.  Myself and my diehard Demons family are all from middle/working class roots and have gone to support the club on match day through the horror years that were 2007 - 2016.

The hitting the snow slopes upper class MFC supporter might have been a thing 30 - 50 years ago, but I think it's pretty much a myth these days.  Those supporters all jumped ship to clubs like Carlton, Essendon and Hawthorn long ago.

Read my post on What they are saying at Punt Road. So sick of this [censored]. 

I and my family have never been to the feckkin snow. Ever.

They think they are so funny. Well I'm over it. Corona robbed me of any sense of humour. This stereotype is like a form of bullying. They want us to stop calling bread with hundreds and thousands on it Fairy bread because it upsets some people, well I'm calling out this snow [censored].🤨

No.

It will follow us forever. But who cares. Better to be "known" for that than for missing teeth, spitting on your coach, etc.

Now, let's sink the boots in the other way, and may it continue for all this season, and next season, and the one after that, and the one after that ...

i don't know why people take it so seriously.

collectively we are seen as fickle supporters that jump ship and go to the snow instead of watch out team play.

next time you hear someone crack a joke, ride it and fire back.

"At least I can afford a snow trip. But I always make sure I'm back in time for the game. I even have a space up front for my Range Rover. How is Moe this time of year?"

Look I hate it as much as anyone. I came from a single parent family, made my way through government schools (only one other Melbourne supporter in my age group) , but was able to have a career in professional services and it always amazed me how many lawyers, consultants and accountants were Melbourne supporters. So like it or not, I totally understand the label we’ve copped, because there is some truth to it

Haters gonna hate.

"Bulla looking at a poor season if the Demons are sitting on top of the ladder." "Get your cheesboard out." "Range Rover for the snow, Jaguar for the footy." Yep these comments really hurt. I would rather be known for missing teeth, being on the dole, spitting on the players and calling my sister Mum.

Water off a duck’s back for me. Winning tastes way better than whatever salty crap they’re drinking. 

Eat dirt, footy media. 

I’m happy to just enjoy the winning and just let all the barbs, jabs and general banter just bounce off me like I’m made of rubber. I’ve thrown plenty over the years so it’s only fair.

I do make an exception of disrespecting Nathan Jones though. Bag the MFC in general if it makes you feel better, we can just point at the ladder and say suck it. But don’t make it personal by insulting a great of our club and a player who has shown more resilience than 99.99% of the players to have played the game. He deserves global respect from the footy media and it’s a disgrace that it’s not being given.

Okay they got me.😄I told you Corona was getting to me. Those Richmond supporters near us last night really cheesed me off too. I feel like I can't enjoy the win because of the lack of respect even by the media.

We’re not gonna change this theme so let’s give it back to these bastards.

We’re got a third of the mrmbers but double the iq

our taxes pay your benefits

Our club invented the game to keep you guys out of the pub on Saturday afternoons

We do think that Medicare should pay for false teeth.

I try to enjoy the Coodabeens Saturday morning. I like to think ive got a fairly thick skin but every reference - even the ok ones- to us includes "well done number 9" and they always crack up as if it is as fresh as ever. Been hearing it for 30 years now I reckon. I now dont turn the other cheek but turn to Off the Record on 3RRR which is a great Sat morning show. So... skins not that thick.

Without getting too political, it’s their disingenuous way of masquerading as ‘working class’ while being the biggest, hypocritical bootlickers of all.🥾👅

News Ltd. has always talked out both sides of its mouth, and has always been about lining their pockets from the working and middle class readers they hold in contempt.

They spent months ginning up campaigns on the Apex gang, Sudanese crime and giving oxygen to some of the biggest dog whistlers in the Australian commentariat, and then put out articles proclaiming their shock and horror when a footballer has been racially abused. Furthermore, their stance on crime within minority communities (I.e. ‘they’ are a threat to ‘our’ lifestyle) infuriates me given they run weekly columns basically glamorizing the [censored]en Moran family and the cast of Underbelly. 🤬

They make jokes about Melbourne Demon supporting snow bunnies, latte sippers and inner city types, but you automatically know where they would stand should a trade union commit to industrial action to improve the lot of workers. Or a rise in Newstart payments. Their disdain for the ‘ordinaries’ (or as they prefer to call them ‘bogans’ and ‘westies’) is palpable.

I’ll stop there as this could become essay length, but will say in closing that Richard Marles once said read the Herald Sun for football results, but don’t read their ‘current affairs’ coverage. I say ignore them both. The former is a gateway drug to the latter.

Once a nick name sticks there’s no point railing against it. If people know it riles you they will just go harder. You got to embrace it and turn the tables.

So if the Tiges fan gives a lame jibe in your face just remind of the game last night saying “Snow contest”

Not a not particularly funny joke cracked by not particularly funny people.  The ones who say it are usually the only ones that laugh.

With that said, as far as club supporter stereotypes, there are far, far worse than ours.

I worked as a reporter for the Herald Sun and left after being asked to coerce a source into saying a particular thing and recording it.

I did it, asked the editor not to add my byline, went home and never returned.

Probs not. But it could be worse: we could be devoted to a club that’s synonymous with missing teeth. 
Or with a drug-fueled premiership. Talking to you, Eagles.

The joke will never go, the cheese platter one is merely an addition.

The best we can do it embrace it. I do in amongst the banter with colleagues and non-colleagues alike. If I'm the one to raise it, or elaborate on it in response, they've got nothing.

I'd rather be the posh wealthy club full of toff than say a toothless and brainless collingwood or drug-doping essendon. These too will never go.

But as above, a few premierships will make them subside.

    DUCKING A PLUCKING by George On The Outer

    With seven consecutive wins for 2021 behind it, and not having played well in its previous game,  Melbourne was ripe for the picking (or plucking) by the Sydney Swans. However, in the end, it was the Ducks who found themselves plucked by a Demons side that continues its relentless successful roll for the Season. Or did the Demons narrowly duck a plucking themselves? Sydney brought its usual game style to the M.C.G.  Get in front and then shut down the game, scrap and refuse to mov

    THE MERRY, MERRY MONTH OF MAY by The Oracle

    The month of May was a little more than halfway into its second day when the news came. Melbourne was on top of the AFL table for the first time since Round 3, 2005. As usual with the Demons, there was no time for celebration. They had just lost tough nut Jack Viney with yet another soft spot in his foot, Adam Tomlinson’s year was in ruins with what was subsequently confirmed as an ACL and Bayley Fritsch’s careless but unintentional fend off on North’s Tom Powell was about to see him charge

    BLUNDSTONE BOOTED by George on the Outer

    The tough Aussie Blundstone boot is made for true blue collar workers, and so it was at this aptly named stadium in Hobart, that the Demons were made to work their hardest for their seventh consecutive win of the season. From the outset, North Melbourne put scoreboard pressure on Melbourne with two majors at an early stage in the first quarter. The Demons fought back and temporarily had the lead but the Kangaroos responded to lead by five points at quarter time. This was not what the public

    UNTROUBLED by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons were untroubled for the third week in a row as they went on a four quarter romp at Marvel Stadium to record a 107 point win over an undermanned bottom-of-the-ladder North Melbourne VFL. The scoring riot began about ten minutes into the game when Sam Weideman notched the first of four goals that could easily have been six or seven but for some uncharacteristic misses from close in. The Demon forward, spurned so far by the club’s AFL selectors, demonstrated a strong work rate

    I’LL GIVE THEE A WIND by Whispering Jack

    The football world was reminded this week about the last time Melbourne opened a season with six wins or more in a row. That was in 1965 when Sir Robert Gordon Menzies was Prime Minister of Australia and the country was fighting a war in faraway Vietnam. It was before Jack Viney’s father, Todd, was born — a time when the game was played almost exclusively on Saturdays and when Demon fans used to wake up in the morning mostly safe in the knowledge that there was not even the remotest possibility

    MAKING HISTORY by KC from Casey

    This was a weekend of history with Anzac Day commemorations throughout the community including the sporting world including the VFL. For the Casey Demons, which originated from the Springvale Football Club founded in 1903, it was a double celebration as Saturday’s game was a celebration of the club’s 750th VFA/VFL match since admission to the competition in 1982. Springvale became the Casey Scorpions in 2005 when the club moved to Casey Fields and since 2017 has been known as the Casey Demo

    THE TWO ELEPHANTS NOT IN THE ROOM by WJ

    After another slow start when they conceded 2.3.15 to nothing in a handball-happy opening 15 minutes, the unflappable Demons delivered a warning sign of major proportions to the rest of the competition with their 34-point win over the reigning premiers in their Anzac Eve contest. And what made things even more ominous is that they did it without two elephants in the room - key forwards Ben Brown and Sam Weideman who have been amassing goals at VFL level while coming back from injuries that

    A TALE OF TWO HEROES by Whispering Jack

    On Saturday night at the ANZAC Day Eve game between Melbourne and Richmond, we will give recognition to the achievements of two great Demons who made significant contributions to the Melbourne Football Club over substantially different time spans. The first is the late Frank V “Checker” Hughes who was born on 26 February 1894 and began his career as a Richmond player in 1915. Shortly after, Hughes was called on to serve his country when he went to war during WW1. He returned from battle and

    TURNING POINT by The Oracle

    It wasn’t that long ago when Melbourne held sway in its Anzac Eve matches against Richmond. The early versions of the blockbuster saw the Demons home by 32 points in 2015 and 33 in 2016. When the turning point came it was dramatic and sudden. The Demons might have been on an upward curve in 2017 under new coach Simon Goodwin but so were the Tigers who had finished a disappointing 13th in 2016. When the teams met in Round 5 under lights in front of a crowd of 85,657 — the highest ever betwee

    STARTING OVER by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons made a successful return to the playing field with a 51 point away from home victory over the Box Hill Hawks. The visitors were starting over after a hiatus of almost 20 months and fielded a strong team of 14 AFL listed players against an undermanned opponent. And they showed from the first bounce that they were out to make up for lost time with an aggressive opening that saw them off to 21 point lead at the first break with thanks to a dominant midfield and two key forward

    NUTCRACKER by George on the Outer

    Q: How to crack a tough nut? A: Use a bigger hammer! It took Melbourne until the last quarter to crack the Hawthorn nut. These days, the Hawks under Alastair Clarkson simply don’t have the talent that served them so well in years gone, and they have to rely on not losing rather than trying to win.   The result is that the match became a slog for three quarters, as Hawthorn clogged the game, flooded heavily and simply stopped the Melbourne run.  Even in the first quarter the signs

    CANCEL CULTURE by Whispering Jack

    I’m not one who likes mixing politics with sport but it should be noted there have been some unusual trends in the world of sport lately. In the US, Major League Baseball announced that it’s moving the 2021 All-Star Game and the 2021 MLB Draft out of Georgia, in response to the state’s new voting law. Over here, there’s a move to force Carlton to change its club song because the original song on which it was based (written in the late 1800s) has “racist connotations”. The Blues maintain the curr
