Ollie need a little bit more work to get to number one. To be the most hated also means to be best and most ruthless compared to the SoftC best and fairest. All other finishes outside of number 1 are just wannabes.

Adelaide - Ned McHenry - snot

Carlton - a big void of nothingness. Maybe 'Brackets' McGovern for being a big void of nothingness

Pies - Brayden Maynard - gives me the Jimmy Grits

Essendon - The Package. New Wit on the Block - Sam Draper

Freo - Nat Fyfe (hair), Walters - whinging diver

Geelong - Gryan Myers - who calls their kid Gryan FFS. Rhys Stanley is an irritating pretender

Gold Coast - Izak Rankine - Wayne Kerr

GWS - Mummy

Hawks - Gunston

North - Ziebell (tool) and Hall

PA - Duursma for the cringe-worthy arrow thing, Butters ([censored]), Byrne-Jones (hair piece)

Tiges - hard to narrow it down - Vastuin (arrogance) Rievoldt, Lynch (sook face) Bolton

Saints - Zak Jones - but his perpetual angry face makes me laugh, Butler & Sinclair (mullets)

Sidney - Nick Blakey - arrogant in your face [censored]. Glad you got dropped

West Coast - Jamie Cripps - punchable head from his very first game. Flyin' gives my the [censored] too

Bulldogs - B Smith - arrogant mulleted tool with an annoying amount of talent

I think that just about covers the main contenders

It’s also the bum fluff that is allegedly a mo. Hold the little bustard down and shave it off FCS! It looks like he ‘s just finished a chocolate milkshake!

Blakey for certain. Thinks he’s a hard man but unfortunately just looks weird. Rankine too. 6 touches a game is nothing to celebrate you eff log.

You’re up very early this morning, WCW. It’s 23:28 here and must be 05:28 there.  Too excited about the Ballantine Medal to sleep?

What a petty, hate filled thread. 
 

I love it. 
 

1. Dangerfield. Flops around, always limping when it’s time to chase. But worst of all, tries to be funny when he clearly isn’t. 
 

2. Selwood. Absolute champion that’ll leave the game with a reputation of a diving, throwing, sore loser sook. 
 

3. B*tch mode barometer Mathieson. If you’re running with the name Beast Mode, probably better to not need 5 senior players injured before you get a look in. 
 

4. Lynch. Goofy lookin velvet tack hammer. Can’t believe it took that long to get a Richmond player in the gun. 
 

5. Papley. Wombats excrement is cube shaped. He’s a cubed shaped piece of human [censored]. 
 

6. Dylan Grimes. Coz Rance retired. 
 

7. Taylor Adams. One of those Sam McLure lookin heads that no one wants or wants to look at. 
 

8. Nat Fyfe. You’re not that cool mate. 
 

9. Joe Daniher. Yuck. 
 

10. Those few Port kids that are all talented but I can’t tell the difference between. All cocky and celebrating and stuff. And their stupid pregame song. No. 
 

*If he didn’t play for us Jake Lever would intercept one of my spots.

1 Rhys Mathieson- what a hero

2 Patrick Dangerfield- unfunny dork who also likes to flop on the ground

3 Nat Fyfe- loves his own "brand"

4 Tom Lynch- dirty campaigner

5 Xavier Duursma- stick your arrow you know where 

6 Tom Hawkins- gets away with everything and his eyes are too close together

7 Ben Long- useless [censored]

8 Tom Papley- over celebrator

9 Jamie Cripps- Hungry, he burns a team mate or three every week

10 Jeremy Howe- traitor who then celebrated like he'd won a premiership when they beat us.

I’m adding Garry Lyon to the list for his unbearable criticism of anyone whose played for Melbourne since 1995. I’ve never known a former player to be so biased against their side.

He loves nothing more than seeing us look soft. He skips over the part where he made dreadful decisions that set the club back 5 years.

I lost count of the amount of times he called an Oliver hand pass ‘Hollywood’ on the weekend, when all he was doing was getting the ball clear and drawing a player.

Now you mention that prat Sam McClure, I'll throw him in to. Reports on the footy as if he's aiming for a Pulitzer Prize. Others in the media - Kane Cornes. I alternately despise and quite like him.  Funny looking bloke. Jake Lever - appalling moustache, and a bloody boring interview subject. Was so negative in his club web site comments on the forthcoming clash with the Dogs, it makes me wonder why we will bother turning up.

A few moments thought brought up numerous candidates:

 

Steve Johnson. More the 'Stevey J' moniker that annoyed me. Infantile - typical Geelong.

Tom Hawkins - smug sniper. You know he likes to look at himself in the mirror.

Aaron Naughton - the Michael Bolton mane of hair. Clearly an imbecile, though perhaps not as stupid as Josh Bruce.

Nat Fyfe. Far too pleased with himself.

 

The media - hard to go past Der-wayne Russell. Awful.

Too hard to whittle classics down to ten but I know one person I’d simply have to include, and that’s Wayne Carey. Actually, he’d take up four spots for his various incarnations: shinboner, crow, assault perpetrator (allegedly) and commentator.

    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

    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

    ELECTRIFYING by George On The Outer

    What more can they throw at the Demons of 2021? Covid restrictions, hubs, aircraft circling between airports before landing for games and now a match stopped for 30 minutes to give a flagging opponent its second wind? To date, none of those distractions has swayed the team from their winning objectives. The game against West Coast in Perth can be marked on their report card as another positive outcome after yet another test. There was much at stake for both sides.  Melbourne had t
