Again, this has NOTHING to do with players. 
And again, I feel sorry for fans who have the “Flag or Bust” mentality. 
That’s all this is.

I feel sorry for you. 

Nah I feel sorry for anyone that doesn’t want their club winning every flag. I don’t care who plays for the clubs I follow, if they’re criminals, [censored] etc, as long as they win for the club. Premierships are all that matters & the people that think otherwise were part of the reason our club was one of the worst sporting club in the country year after year.Too many people accepted mediocrity for far to long & it not only cost the club wins, it cost them decades of supporters & future members.

Geez you’re damned if you do and you’re damned if you don’t!

Too many times ppl misquote or misinterpret or read between the lines of other people’s comments. And they’re taken to task for it.

So I quote him verbatim, and with zero ambiguity and I’m likewise having to explain. 
He said “it’s all about flags and nothing else” which I took to mean it’s all about flags and nothing else, ergo I feel sorry for him. 

That's right, but you're smarter than a lot of people too. 

Let's face it though, people talk in absolutes all the time here. Eg. We ALWAYS bomb it in, we NEVER use the corridor, Brown hasn't taken a mark in years. It's everywhere unfortunately.

For a guy who has supposedly already signed a deal with Freo, he seems pretty invested. Was braving the wet at Casey to watch the VFL boys play, has been posting pics of the win on his Insta... I don't know, something doesn't add up.

He could possibly have just 2 games left with the MFC, but he isn't acting like someone who has already checked out. 

He seems like a pretty "in the moment" kind of guy - like Barassi said decades ago "my heart is wherever I am" or words to that effect.

Pretty much exactly that! Make your loyalty portable. Was ahead of his time

What is this supposed to mean?! ⬆️ 

I hope I’m mistaken, but it sounds patronising. Totally uncharacteristic of you so I’ll be shocked and disappointed if that’s the case.

Don’t reply… don’t reply… don’t reply…

Whoops, too late. I’m replying.
 

I hereby apologise for thinking premierships are NOT all that matters (sic) and thereby being part of the reason our club was one of the worst sporting club (sic) in the country year after year. 

Henceforth, in terms of my beloved Club, I shall only accept Premierships. Anything less is simply unacceptable.

Spot on

He's gone but he likes everyone to be his mate... not uncommon and he's probably well advised to avoid... you know what

No, there was no ill intentions whatsoever. Pretty surprised at this response myself and I think you're jumping to conclusions.

I'm sorry I said anything.

I've just phoned the club and asked if the boys could wear the redback jumper this week in a gesture of support.

One would assume that @Webber might have something to say about this.

Yep……grrrrrrr.

Some people here really need to get a grip. People are trying to discuss what means the most to them and other people are more keen on starting arguments for no reason based on a couple of words they said.

I'm in this for flags, as much as I'm in this for a winning season, making the finals and so forth. I don't need to remain loyal to Jackson if he goes and I'm not interested if someone is sorry for me if I have that view. If people want to bully me or others on a message board for having that opinion then that says more about them than it does me.

    BLUE VIBE AT IKON by Meggs

    It was such a nice vibe at Ikon on Friday night.     Princes Park looked in excellent condition, a relaxed but modest crowd and President Kate Roffey and CEO Gary Pert in attendance, greeting fans and shaking hands.     It was an evening with little to complain about for Dees supporters, save for some drizzling rain, a few missed scoring opportunities and the fact that the Dees as raging favourites duly took the four points.   Carlton was always going to struggle to cover

    BLUES AWAY by Meggs

    This Round 5 clash against the Blues at Princes Park (officially known as Ikon Park) is a great chance for the Dees to bounce back to the winning circle following our top-of-the-table loss to Brisbane last week.     Carlton will be missing several key players with the pundits calling 10 to nil.  Raging favouritism is never a comfortable thing for Melbourne supporters but we simply must deliver on Friday night.   History has seen these teams play four times since 2017 with the Dee

    LIONS POUNCE by Meggs

    Early Sunday afternoon Meggs was coffeeing in Mornington and witnessing hail, thunder, lightning, rain, wind and feeling the freezing temperatures and knowing all these elements were heading towards Casey Fields.  Oh dear.  The Brisbane coach had said during the week that he wanted the game moved to Marvel because “if you're going to have two of the better teams in the comp playing, (it warrants) a venue and deck that suits the occasion”.  However, Casey Fields was uncharacteristi

    RAINING PREMIERS by KC from Casey

    If the threatening dark grey skies that loomed above Ikon Park before the VFL Grand Final didn’t provide a sufficiently inhospitable reception for our visitors from sunny Queensland, the rains that bucketed down after quarter time certainly did. For years, the Casey Demons have welcomed opposing teams at their home fortress with rain, hail, wind and frosty conditions and it was just Southport’s luck that they met those conditions head on in the VFL’s big dance. They suited Casey’s skillful

    PRIDE OF VICTORIA by KC from Casey

    When Casey Demons coach Mark Corrigan talks about his charges putting their “best foot forward” on Sunday when they take on the Southport Sharks in the 2022 VFL Grand Final, it’s a signal that his team is on a mission not only for themselves but in  the name of their forebears, the Springvale Scorpions, and indeed for the pride and honour of the entire State of Victoria. The VFL club now known as the Casey Demons last won a premiership flag under the name of the Springvale Scorpions but tha

    NARRM AT HOME by Meggs

    For the fourth consecutive week, and the second week as the mighty Narrm, we take on a Top 8 team. Could this match be a preview of the Season 7 Grand Final?   Our opponents this week, Brisbane, stand undefeated atop the AFLW ladder after slaying the struggling Freo, and the unrated Giants and Gold Coast.  After amassing 225 points for and only 56 against, for a percentage of 401.8%, the pundits are claiming the Lions have the best attack the competition has ever seen.   Brisbane

    CHANGES 2022 by The Oracle

    Part 1: The year we stood still (or did we?).  Premiership coach David Parkin who  coincidentally turned 80 yesterday, famously used to say that even a premiership team needs to bring at least five new players into the fold in order to advance from year to year and therefore, if this adage remains true, then the Melbourne Football Club really did stand still in 2022.  Of the players recruited after the club’s premiership in September, 2021, only Luke Dunstan (5 games) managed to provid

    NARRM BLITZES EARLY by Meggs

    The last time we played the Saints, Pride Round 3 January 2022, it was an arm wrestle for 3 quarters and a Demons highlights package for 1 quarter. Oddly familiar was our outing to Moorabbin on Sunday, except this week we are Narrm and it’s Indigenous Round.   Our highlights package was contained to a first quarter onslaught. Superior work at stoppages and our mids dominant.  We showcased our run and carry and our dynamic forward line.  With Hore, Zanker twice, Bannan, Fitzsimon and Paxy al

    THE CASEY SHOW by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons will play in the VFL Grand Final at Ikon Park next Sunday after overturning their final round loss to the Brisbane Lions Reserves and dominating the Preliminary Final to emerge victorious by 51 points.  And while the distance in standards between the AFL and VFL at finals time is admittedly a wide one and the opposition and conditions different, there were a few Demons on display who excelled to the point where one was left to ask whether they could have made the difference
