Surprised long time fan loathed Mitch Robinson hasn’t had a mention yet. 

I figured Mitch was going to play two games and fade into obscurity when he left Carlton for Brisbane. I have since built up some begrudging respect for the bloke. 209 games and counting, gives his all at every contest and never taken a backward step. I think he would be in my favourite players if he was in red and blue.

A common trait amongst many these disliked players is that they are tough, never take a backward step, combative, contest everything and don’t expect to be loved.

I sort of agree with that JCB, but I think the Tiger Tom Lynch would desperately like to be loved but he’s a tos ser.

You work for the mafia?

 

On a more serious note, I think it's time to stop using the "punchable head" description which is scattered through this thread. I expect someone will now say I'm too woke, but I can live with that. What I can't live with are the consequences of people being punched in the head in the real world.

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. 
 

Did you forget ‘home wrecker’? Anthony Stevens hasn’t.

Hawkins : thug and gets away with it.

Lynch : see above.

Harris Andrews : like the Brisbane lions as a whole, overrated. Still trying to work out how he beat May for AA honours.

Mitch Robinson : his take down tackle on Dusty was the exception.

Caleb Daniel : Apparently racking up 15 metres sideways kicks makes you a star. I just don’t see him as as damaging. Sick of commentators banging on about him.

West Coast : Because they continue to suck me in then I tip them and they do what they did in Sydney on Sunday.

James Hird : Grub

Dustin Martin is an annoying whinging horrible role model and bloke. Also an overrated footballer who’s a clear level below the likes of Gablett Jnr and Judd etc.

Lynch is a dirty sniping [censored] with a [censored] attitude.

Nankervis is a sniping hack who just belts opposition in the back of the head pretending to try and spoil. I’m surprised Gawns skull wasn’t caved in when we played them and he gave Nank a football lesson.

Powell-pepper is a faux tough guy and average footballer.

Toby Greene is a sniveling [censored].

Jake Stronger looks like a doofus and cheated on his partner with a minor. [censored] bloke. 

That’ll do it for now!

What about that guy who used to play for Norf, the guy with the big mop of hair, the 90 metre run up for goal and used to flop for frees as well. He was a loathsome chap.

I see Pruess is injured again and will probably miss the rest of the season. He has to be made of glass. Think we did well offloading him when we did.

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.

    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

    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

    LONG AGO AND FAR AWAY by Whispering Jack

    When the combatants that are due to face off on Monday night at Optus Stadium last met, it was 11 days after the World Health Organization had declared the Covid19 outbreak a global pandemic. In Australia, the first cases had just come to light, including visiting US actors Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson, the toilet paper panic was in full flight and the world was starting to reel in anticipation of impending disaster.
