Snow Joke



Recommended Posts

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. 

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

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.

Ummmm.... You know that was a prank by The Betoota to prove how ridiculous the conservative media are right?

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.

    THE YEAR THE SNOWFLAKES FELL by Whispering Jack

    The snow that fell on the slopes of Victoria’s mountain districts in the winter of 1965 was not considered good enough to satisfy the enthusiasts. The really heavy snow that season came in two waves further north in July and August. The first descended on the national capital where “Pig Iron Bob” still held sway. Snow flurries touched the landscape all the way across the Blue Mountains. The next big snow extended further north up to the hills around Mackay in Queensland. Snowflakes fell inside t

    DEES GIVE DOGS A BONE by George On The Outer

    First place versus second on the ladder promised to be a precursor to what can be expected in the coming finals race.  However, it was the Demons who faltered and gave the Bulldogs a bone to feed their hunger just weeks out from the end of the season. The win also sent the Dogs to the top of the ladder, a position they are unlikely to cede in the coming weeks, given their fixture. While Melbourne may now struggle to keep a spot in the top four with its draw and will likely depend on the res

    THE WORM WILL TURN by The Oracle

    When I was asked to preview this game, I wasn’t sure whether it was going to be played in Darwin, on the Gold Coast or the MCG. I had no idea as to the identity of Melbourne’s opponent. This would have made for one hell of an interesting match preview so I’m glad that the AFL managed to reorganize its fixture to enable a game … any game at all … to proceed in Round 19. We’ll worry about the Gold Coast Suns or whoever they put us up against when the weekend’s done and dusted and if and when

    DRAWN AND DEEFLATED by George on the Outer

    1st v 17th ... it would seem a sure one way contest between the Hawks and the Demons but it was not to be with the game finishing in a draw, the only positive being the Demons still retain their top spot on the ladder. Melbourne was taught a football lesson by Al Clarkson, who with limited resources, just instructed his players to scrap, fight and surge the ball forward.  It stifled the Melbourne free flowing style of play and denied them the opportunities they could normally expect.

    PINK RAIN by Whispering Jack

    There is no certainty about life under a pandemic. You wake up one morning without a care in the world; the sun’s shining and it’s a beautiful day. An hour later, everything’s up in the air, the entire state is on high alert and the apartment complex next door’s in lockdown. The simple decision you had to make about buying a ticket to the footy at the weekend suddenly might get put on the back burner. There are other things in life to prioritise and on top of that, they’re predicting rain for th

    COR BLIMEY by KC from Casey

    In years to come, the old timers will talk in wonderment about the “Avalon Avalanche” that hit Werribee’s Avalon Airport Oval on a mild winter’s afternoon at about ten minutes after the halfway mark of the game between the local Tigers and their cross town rivals, the Demons from Casey. At that moment in time, the game was poised as if on a knifepoint. Up until the main interval, it had been the visiting team which had maintained the lead from the start but it had struggled to entirely asse

    POWER FAILURE by George on the Outer

    South Australians should be well familiar with the damage that storms can do to the power supply.  But Port Power forgot those lessons on Thursday night football as they watched the Melbourne storm descend upon them from across the border and ruin their hopes of a top four placing. Just as equally, the win to the Demons cemented their spot in the top two and sent out the message that a team who had been going around in circles for the past couple of weeks, has in fact, turned into a cyclone

    CASEY SUFFER FIRST DEFEAT IN TWO YEARS

    The circumstances were a little unusual last Saturday night as KC from Casey was unavailable to report on the Casey Dees due to work commitments. On the ground things were somewhat unusual as well given that, although there was a game to be won on the night, preparations were also being made for the forthcoming Thursday night clash against Port Adelaide with Ben Brown rested for large slabs of the evening. It turned out perhaps, to be a stroke of genius for Melbourne with Brown making a strong c

    WEATHERING THE STORM by Mel Rundle

    The magic of Melbourne’s magnificent start to 2021 is beginning to wear off. In its past six matches it lost to three teams that were outside the eight, out of form —  teams which it had very little trouble bearing last year. This week, the temperature is turned up even higher with the hard fought spot in the top four at risk. The really ominous factor about the Demons’ upcoming Thursday night meeting with Port Adelaide this week is that it is due to take place at the very place where its dec

    FEE-FI-FO-FUM by George on the Outer

    “Fee-fi-fo-fum, without a Full Forward the Premiership can’t be won!” So said the GWS Giants, as they exposed Melbourne’s fatal deficiency with a nine point win at the MCG.  In past weeks Melbourne has been barely able to gloss over the lack of a serious target in front of goal, while others were able to contribute.  But in a near repeat of the game from the previous week, players running up the ground simply had no-one to kick the ball to, when all that was needed was that one tall target.

    MUCH ADO ABOUT EVERYTHING by Whispering Jack

    Let's face it. We Melbourne supporters are a demanding lot. Here we are with our team on top of the ladder with a record of 12 wins and 2 losses, a decent percentage and a fair run home for a team with finals credentials. We have a fit list with lots of in form players, many of who are in contention for All Australian and other high honours, the team’s playing with purpose and cohesion and its VFL affiliate is undefeated and going gangbusters.  Still, we're all walking around with conc

    HIATUS by KC from Casey

    After their five week Covid19 lockdown hiatus, the Casey Demons were fairly scratchy against Essendon VFL for the best part of 2½ quarters on Sunday afternoon but they finally settled down to motor away to a 48 point victory. With 20 AFL affiliated players on the team sheet, the Casey line up looked the strongest team ever put together since linking up with the Demons but the team struggled to score in the early going and managed its first goal to Aaron vandenBerg late in the first term.
