Hardwick's arrogance is most nauseating:  “Mate, I hate coming here... {Marvel}".  hardwick-press-conference-marvel-stadium-crowd-home-game-complain

He is becoming as big a whinger as Scott.  They are now equal as my most disliked AFL coach.

Apparently their worst since 2004 vs Freo (wooden spoon year)

Talk on the radio about how the Richmond coach actually said “I don’t like going to Docklands” ( I haven’t heard the quote so not sure of it), but the hosts were like I’ve got the worlds smallest violin for Hardwick… and that the fans don’t travel to it..(above is the quote and it’s as bad as it can be for a coach of the biggest club in the land, what a f log)

The whole conversation sounded so familiar.

Just shows how fair weather the tigers fans are, lose a few games and they drop off

Well MFC isn't as we were shafted to this  role up to about 2014/15 snd just as Jeff K has said it's not financially viable Generally playing an interstate team on Mother's Day.

We complained and now don't get that gig and the Hawks are also unhappy.

Point out  when we last won On Mothers Day and the results and crowd?

You are condemning the Club although in a much better situation now than say 2014 to a financial burden if you selfishly think we should be rostered in this time slot.

When you are f#$##@ [email protected]%$ thats the type of sandwich you are served, suck it up Jeffy boy, Peggy, Elliott, Joffa.

Its our time to shine we've crawled through miles of s#$% for years and finally come out clean on the other side.

Not an ounce of sympathy for those mongrels.

What an entitled [censored] Hardwick is

Aren't we being a bit precious? Hasn't Demonland been full of posters for years bemoaning us playing home games at Marvel/Etihad? I happen to agree with Hardwick...Richmond shouldn't play home games at Marvel and neither should we. 

PS: Hardwick is a shocking whinger, though.

Wasn't long ago when Hardwick was on the verge of tears during post game interviews.
Now he smacks of arrogance and thinks he's the font of all knowledge.
If he didn't have Dusty Martin he wouldn't even be there.

Did he say whether Mrs Hardwick likes heading to Docklands?

I think to be absolutely fair no MCG team should be playing at Marvel unless it's for a reason that has been approved by the club. 

Nice to see them having a whinge about it though.

100%

Every club should play their 11 home games where they choose.

This includes geelong who should have 11 home games down there if they want them and so the likes of richmond, Collingwood and Essendon (who havent been there since 1993!!!!) Have to go down there too.

Added to that, if its your home game you wear whatever the hell you want and the opposition has to not clash.... but thats another topic

Yep and Richmond trying to distract public from the nightclub altercations. Brendan Gale should never be considered for the top job at the AFL

Take a look at Dustys stats in 2021 and they basically determine their win loss outcomes other than for 1 game out of 9

I have absolutely no sympathy for Kennett. He is the most pig headed arrogant President the game has ever seen.

Further more whinging about not getting an AFLW team when his club wanted nothing to do with it when it started!

 

Hopefully we poach all of the talent they develop in their VFLW team for our AFLW team to stick the knife in deeper!

Hardwick now arguing for elimination of prior opportunity.

My cynicism antenna is saying but "don't you have the best tackle breaker in the game."

Just cannot understand a push to punish the player who is actually making the play

I assume you are too young to remember John Elliott as President of Carlton, although his association with pig's anatomy is more associated with it's backside than it's head.

    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.

    ESSENDONE & DUSTED by George on the Outer

    Essendon was the latest casualty as the Melbourne juggernaut rolled over the Bombers on its way to a 12th win for the 2021 Season.  It was a display of the difference in quality, coaching and system that defines those who will compete in finals and those that lie outside the top eight. Sadly, in these Covid times a mere 19,414 attended the game and the silence outside the ground before the match was eerie.  Normally, thronging crowds lining up at ticket gates and food carts were replaced by
