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.

    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.

    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
