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.

It's about as funny as when I tore a right lateral knee ligament on my fourth day on the slopes at La Plagne one year.

From a snow demons fandom site, whatever that means..

 

A snow demon, a large cat-like creature with thick white fur and covered in horns and spikes, usually hunts in The Miln Mountains, but comes down to the lowlands at winter.

They are so scarce that many inhabitants of Fort Miln, including Cob used to believe they were mere legends. However, in the events of The Great Bazaar and Other Stories, Arlen Bales kills a snow demon by carving a heat ward out of his own blood on the snow demon's chest, and melting it, making it his first coreling kill.

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.

The Hasbeens act has been tired for more than a decade. Even Hey Hey It's Saturday got put out to pasture when it reached its use-by date, but the Hasbeens keep getting airtime to run the exact same jokes they did 20 years ago.

The HUN has always been the unofficial rag of the Filth and Essendrug.  Take ZERO notice of the clap trap put out.

And if that isn't convincing enough for you just remember who their chief football writer is....

Look if we are copping this crap it means we are winning. I just laugh it off now. My friend made a joke the other week about the snow and I said yeah and I secretly live in toorak and mentioned how I saw a collingwood supporter at the snow once and mentioned how did they afford to go there. 

I didn't go to a private school, don't have a beach house, don't drive a range rover and probably the only mcc member that has been on centrelink although all be it not for long. 

What gets me is when commentators make jokes that are the ones who live in Toorak and drive the nice cars.

It is only a joke, though repeated, it is good to be able to laugh at ourselves

I think it is much better stereotype than most of the other clubs.

Means we are generally, financially stable and enjoy adventure.

Humour based on classisms. One of the last bastions of politically incorrect statements allowed.

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.

I was there when the cheese platter thing started, my mate brought the platter. Absolutely hilarious. Who gives a fig what any of these idiots think. Every club has these stereotypes and ours aren’t as bad as some.

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].🤨

You can blame the Coodabeens for this [censored].

They started it 30 years ago and haven't come up with any new material since.

TOTAL FLOGS.

To be fair, as far as stereotypes go, we got it pretty good. Rich, educated, well travelled. It could be worse. 
Will you ever stop thinking of Pies fans as toothless criminals? Because that’s a far worse stereotype to not be able to shake.

I miss Channel 10 broadcasting footy as someone there always made sure the camera's focused on toothless supporters in shots after a goal. Perpetrate the myth I say.

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.

Is this what happened? Verbatim? Doesn't ring true; coerce is too big a word for a Herald Sun editor.

Is it just me or can the next game not come around fast enough?

Almost everything in between seems less interesting.

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?"

I agree

SICK BURN!

Have only ever been to the snow and and had a ski maybe a dozen times many years ago.

Its too expensive and my knees aint up to it.

But heaven forbid that people do. 

How dare they enjoy our beautiful mountains, get some exercise and help maintain an important tourism industry.

Next the media will lampoon the cheese eaters in the community.

Oh wait..

    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
