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.

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

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

Jeff going for his own version of the prison bar jumper distraction from the team being rubbish.

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

Don't have to tell me man.
Whenever they're under the pump it's Martins heroics that drag their arzes from the flames.

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.

    OUR GRAND OLD FLAG by George On The Outer

    When an AFL Grand Final approaches, supporters look for omens to help them foresee how their team will fare in the contest.   Melbourne supporters were, until just before Saturday’s opening bounce, the best in the business at looking for positives to give them hope and direction - a natural feeling after 57 years in the wilderness. So when the Bulldogs’ streamers kept slipping from the handle of the Premiership Cup as Glen Jackovich delivered it to Optus Stadium, they wondered whether it

    THE ICING ON THE QUAKE by Whispering Jack

    It’s not Christmas yet but if the Melbourne wins its last game of the 2021 season, then many of its fans will be celebrating early. There already are some parts of our town where the pending festivity is preordained. Houses are decked out with red and blue banners and streamers, some of which appeared as early as last Saturday week, on the morning after the Demons’ magnificent 83-point crushing of Geelong in their preliminary final at Optus Stadium. While it’s great to see the numbers of lo

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition t

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s

    SKIN THE CATS by Whispering Jack

    The task ahead for the Demons as they wend their way down the Princes Freeway to Geelong on Saturday night will be to skin the Cats. For them to come away with the points from this game would mark an historic occasion for the club as it will finish on top of the ladder for the first time since its last premiership year, 1964. And it was in that year, that a trip to Corio Bay to meet the reigning premiers in Round 12, was one of the catalysts for Melbourne’s surge to the flag. It was a top o

    REACH FOR THE STARS by George on the Outer

    It was a game of great significance for the Melbourne Football Club. A win would see them keep top spot on the ladder with one round remaining. To achieve top place in the Round for Reach when we are all inspired to “Be Like Jim” and reach for the stars was a great way of honouring one of our heroes. All the better given that it was done by way of an emphatic 41 point win against Adelaide! It is worth remembering that, but for the umpiring mistake in the previous encounter with the Crows, t

    TICKETS PLEASE by The Oracle

    A lot of water has passed under Princes Bridge in the five years since Melbourne last met Adelaide on the MCG. The Crows were riding high at the time while the Demons were mid-table and scrambling for a win to stay in the race for the finals. The 30,000 fans who had tickets to the game were thoroughly entertained by a close, high scoring affair that ended in tears for fans of the home team. Not even an eight-goal second term could help them.   Times have changed.    In the fi
