Oh how I hate being slapped with a wet lettuce. In my case it is all true. I am the stereotypical Melbourne supporter, the only differences being I buy a membership every year, I sold the Range Rover and I know who number 9 is. Smile, we are unbeaten playing well and they are taking notice of us. I want to hear it every day for years, and I will smile and say we are doing well may have to ski overseas more if we keep winning. 

PS. Is young Neitz still the captain?

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.

Damn right, just laugh the silver-tail jokes off regardless of it applying to you personally or not. For those struggling with that then may I suggest having a cup of concrete.  Keep it true to the stereotype and accept only the best - Ultra-High Performance Concrete (UHPC).

I've been to 5 Demon Games this year, also arranging a weekend at Hotham (when we're playing interstate). Best of both worlds!

When our team and club is up and about, they have nothing else to attack us on, except our supporter base. Not many other clubs ever cop this. It's also a bit of a pathetic put down. "YOU HAVE MONEY!!!!" And no, I've never been to the snow.

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

Pffft...

Jones is a champion.  People know that.  Has as much respect in the footy world as the next man/woman.

At the local shopping centre and I just spotted an old guy sporting a Dees baseball cap that was so brand spanking new he may as well have left the label on it. I see this guy all the time and never knew he was a fan. In my neck of the woods Dees supporters are few and far between; ones who show their colours, anyways. It made me think about a tweet I read after Richmond won the grannie in 2017. It read along the lines of Now you’ll see only two types of Richmond regalia: Brand new gear or 32yo gear that reeks of mothballs. So I’m sure we have to expect a barrage of this type of discourse should we go all the way. Incidentally, the newest MFC merch I own is a guernsey I won in a competition two weeks ago. And not a single item of the sh*t-tonne of stuff I’ve amassed over the years smells of mothballs. Brave is the person who even entertains the idea of labelling me a bandwagonner. 👿

I’m the complete opposite type of Demon fanatic. I don’t own a car, let alone a Range Rover; I only know what a charcuterie plate is coz I saw it on the Hans ad. on TV; and as for snow, the closest I would ever get to seeing white powder is if I’m walking down the main street of St. Albans and the meth-head in front of me falls over and the baggie of ice in his pocket comes tumbling out onto the footpath. (This actually happened.)

I couldn’t care less about the joke. Like others have said, I’d rather be known for that than be missing teeth or on the dole. 
Water off a ducks back for me, let the haters hate.

Work colleague (Collingwood supporter) got into me one day about owning a Range Rover and renting a chalet at Hotham during footy season.

I replied that at least the value of my car didn’t fluctuate (had to tell him what that means) depending on how much petrol was in the tank. And by the way, we Dees supporters don’t rent, we own. And we don’t let our 14 year old daughter smoke at the dinner table in front of her kids.

Next time he has a go, tell him that the Police can never solve murders in Collingwood.   He'll ask why.

You can then explain it's because there are no dental records and all the DNA is the same.

Finish him off with an Addams Family song:

"Your sister is your mother, your father is your brother, you all (bonk) one another, the Magpie family".

Apparently Dale "Daisy" Thomas (the former Collingwood and Carlton player) made a "joke" on social media in a video calling up ski resorts to ask if any Demons supporters have cancelled their bookings to the snow for this year.

All very lame and the typical stereotype against us. I have only every been to the snow 2 or 3 times in my life. I am also just a regular working class Melbourne supporter.

Sadly, we won't be able to stop this joke and ridicule about us until we finally end our Premiership drought. Winning flags is the only way to shut up those who hate us and make fun of us.

I'm usually in the south of France in April each year so my chalet is generally on loan to family and friends. I traded out of the Rangy 18 months ago (it was already a year old with 10k on the clock) and leased me the new Porsche Cayenne. I was a bit nervous when Covid hit that I'd have to keep it for three years, but as life is back to normal here in Brighton, I should be able to flip it in the usual 24 months. The partners in the firm are now on board with Charles and have stopped calling him Nieta. Oh, and what's this thing called a 'weekend'? (And well done number two Ol' Chap.)

In fairness Lord Nev, it is difficult to spot the difference between a Beetoota article and the actual news. The recent article about the hit kids show Bluey not representing minority groups including dogs of colour and with disabilities.

One has to be pretty vigilant taking in news these days, unfortunately. The term “false-flagging” refers to media organisations concocting outrage that centres around supposed “debates” that in actuality, really aren’t occurring in any real sense. Recently Ch 9 ran a story about how the Golden Gaytime was being targeted for a re-naming by the LBGTQ community. Turns out it was just somebody who started a petition and managed to get a few hundred idiots to sign it, but that didn’t stop Ch 9 hyping it to the point that it’s Facebook page was full of furious and, worst of all, hateful language from it’s viewers/readers towards a community that never even picked the fight in the first place. In reality , the overwhelming majority of the gay community are either genuinely uninterested in the issue (there are bigger societal issues they face than this) or wholeheartedly embrace the name. 
 

The squeaky wheel gets the grease. These media companies know this, but rather than searching out genuine issues with that difficult, draining and meddlesome stuff called “journalism”, many have discovered it’s just so much easy to create the wheel AND the grease out of thin air. It gets people interested in their crappy product just as effectively as any journalism could, at a quarter of the price. The downside? A society being further divided by skewed impressions of the world they live in. 
 

So next time you see an article saying “they bloody want to change the name of Smarties because it’s not inclusive of stupid people” ask yourself “Is this real?”  The answer is invariably “no” or “not really”. 
 

And sure there are occasionally very worthy examples where a call for social change is very loud and absolutely warranted, but it’s important to know how to differentiate and not conflate these things. The narrative that so much of our media pushes of “outraged, whingy, lefty snowflakes” is a dangerous one, because it’s purpose is to dilute other more crucial progressive thought. 
 

Anyway, sorry for the essay. Got on a roll. I’m of to Perisher Smiggins for a cognac.

We're the only team that gets these personal habit/life digs. You don't hear about Geelong fans heading down the Bellerine to go fishing or Richmond fans heading to certain establishments.

    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
