I would love an even harder stance (like NBA coaches) and just refuse to answer questions in regard to it, citing that both Max & Richardson have spoken on the topic and for him to only answer questions regarding to Monday's game and Daniher/MND.

AFL Players & Coaches are forced far too much to straight bat back to media reporters. They should just refuse to answer questions. In some instances in the NBA, certain players don't answer ANY questions from certain media reporters that they either don't like or feel they have an agenda, same with coaches as well.

In many cases you are right.

This has gone so far to the distortion of circumstances to create headlines that refusal to answer would trigger a new round of 'what are dees hiding' 

It would be a hiding to nowhere.

This should be the last straw for any supporters here to ever think that the Media thinks of anyone except themselves.They are scum and feed off Clubs as how and who it suits. When a footy Club runs direct competition successfully against the Media, well...

I would ban the media after this game win or lose. In fact close the shop up as much as possible for rest of home season.

Pretty human Club that we follow boys and girls..

My opinion of Melksham has actually increased since this since he was the one sticking up for his teammate and questioning a leader for drinking whilst in recovery from a concussion. 

....and then punching a bloke with concussion in the face?!

I'll say it again, the silence from Melksham is deafening. He has the power to come out and explain what happened and what was said. We haven't heard a thing from him. If he reckons it is all done and dusted, as May does, why wouldn't he come out and back the club's decision and clarify his involvement. 

He doesn’t have to do jack. Clearly the Club think so to, hence the “deafening silence.” How about trusting the Club’s decisions and handling of this situation?!

If we all stop giving it any thought it stops having any power. It happened. Move on. 

Remember when Spargo and Pickett got suspended for taking an Uber during Covid, or when Oliver got caught drunk driving, or when TMac said vaccines shouldn’t be mandatory? I don’t really either - as I had to google all those stories to fact check.

None of these things matter if the team plays well together. Take a deep breath, picture Gawn holding the cup, and let it blow over. The footy media is just bored as we are in the bye weeks. Don’t get sucked in.

Unless it's a different time, my recollection is that Oliver was under 0.05% but because he was on his P-plates he needed to be zero. So, not drunk driving at all.  

But the essence of you point is spot on.

On that basis we are on track and nothing to see here RP yes?

Well, I don’t know what you’re talking about?

Everything is fine in the land of No Apologies! No one is upset or sorry for anything! 

What a magical place this is… there are fights everywhere, everyone is calling each other terrible epithets and calling into question their value both verbally and digitally. But no one should be upset according to my warped reality so no one IS upset… (birds fluttering, organ playing 🎵)

So your opinion of someone increases when they enact violence? 

My opinion of someone increases when they stick up for a teammate, and when one of the “leaders” is in fact acting like a complete tool. Melksham’s decision to use violence is something I don’t condone, but his actions behind it are far better than the actions of May.

There's a reason why Melksham is in the clear.

I was listening to Radio National ABC this morning. Jack Snape and Patricia Karvelas taking about Melbournes wows this week. Not only did they get the story completely wrong they added the Simon Goodwin has lost all the players . At best the story they ran was total B/S at worse it was slanderous.  Jack Snape is their Sports Reporter.

Completely disagree, violence is never the answer.

Why? The Club have come out and we now know Jake was actually doing what they all should have been doing. I mean what was Hibberd doing. Who knows if the others tried to say something. We don't need to know those details. We know that Maysie was drinking when he should not have been and got aggressive with Jake when he obviously tried to temper the situation. There is fault on all sides. Maysie has now apologised in the media and to his team mates and hopefully Joel Smith in particular. Jake has apologised to his team mates. Why does Jake need to come out and say anymore. Also while I'm at it that poster who said that Jake would come out after his retirement and try and make money out of this well just goes to show how low some posters here will go. Some here with obvious bias must have had a wonderful couple of days.

I just hate all of this. I love May, he has been so good for our club, but i hate reading about what he has said and the way he has carried on.

I love Melksham and he has given a fair bit to the club as well, love that he stood up for himself and his teammate, absolutely detest that he used violence. Hate it.

Just hate all of it, leaves me with a sick feeling in my guts. Cant say too much more about it really. Its just a huge mess.

We’ve talked about May and we’ve talked about Melksham, but I’m wondering what Joel Smith is currently thinking? We haven’t mentioned him. By all accounts he organised the dinner and presumably asked the 5 or 6 others to attend. So a close knit bunch of guys, friends, going to dinner. Then Joel, by all accounts, is verbally denigrated by one of said friends. If I was Joel, would I want to be playing down back with that person any more? He obviously doesn’t trust or believe in me. I think I might ask Goody if I can train with the forwards from now on.

It will be interesting to see how (and if) the fences can be mended after this. I have my doubts they can.

Of course they can, if May is sincere in his apology to Joel and Joel accepts it and moves on. May is clearly a bad drunk and other than a couple of drinking episodes with us, has been a model citizen. Why wouldn’t Joel accept that it was the grog talking, if May is genuinely contrite and remorseful. The boys and the team will move on.

Win or lose on QB, the bye will allow the club to reset, regroup and reconfirm the way they want to play and behave.

Can anyone remind me if Whately called for an AFL Investigation, when DeGoey allegedly assaulted a man in the USA, by kicking and punching, after the victim was hit with a bottle, in company with a mate, in a nightclub, after allegedly, forcibly touching a female?

Did De Goey cop any punishment at all from the club or his leadership group? Did Whately question that?

Selective moral conscience is a wonderful thing!

Complete overreaction, what does he think the AFL will uncover that hasn't already come to light. Did we ever get a clear explanation as to what happened in the chop sticks scandal?

From all the available info it seems milkshake was defending those disrespected by May, probably why he was not suspended. May it seems could benefit from a visit to AA. I find it difficult to believe a "sorry" is going to fix things in the short term. Our chances of a repeat GF seems to have flown out the window. If we beat the pies I will be amazed.

    BLINK OF AN EYE by The Oracle

    In the year 2022, we learned that the fine between ultimate success in sport and failure can be measured in the blink of an eye. The Melbourne Football Club began the year where it had left off in 2021 - as the powerhouse of the AFL men’s competition.  They steamed towards the halfway mark of the season taking all before them until their winning streak of ten in a row (17 overall since the latter part of the premiership season) came to a crushing end with consecutive losses at the hands of

    CHANGES 2022 Part 03 by The Oracle

    Part Three - Comparing apples with pomegranates by The Oracle One of the truly pointless exercises after each year’s draft is the game over which club “won” the period in question. The reality is that there is no winner or loser at the time and it’s only years further down the track when a full assessment of how the picks turn out can be made, that the winning hand is revealed. And the draft results cannot be considered in isolation; you need to look at where each club stood before the

    GRAND NEW FLAG by Meggs

    Daisy was at pains to tell everyone who asked that the grand final story was NOT the Daisy Pearce story.  She wanted people to focus on the Melbourne Football Club, our wonderful players and non-playing teammates, her legacy buddy head coach Mick Stinear, the assistant coaches, the Club volunteers, the Board, the administrators, #DeeArmy, all supporters, in fact anyone who bleeds for the red and the blue.  But it is also a bit about the pioneer, role model, mother who is Daisy Pearce

    EYES ON THE PRIZE by Meggs

    The Stinear/Pearce partnership has evolved over the 7 AFLW seasons and they have built a team with talented, committed footballers who play for each other and execute a highly entertaining brand of footy. On Sunday can a premiership be added to this legacy? This may well be the last time we see Daisy in the mighty red and blue as she contemplates her start date for a coaching role ‘Down at Kardinia Park’.  Last week’s sensational sealer in the Prelim showed everybody that Daisy could s

    DAISY’S DEMON DRIVE by Meggs

    On a blustery Saturday afternoon when the conditions affected marking skills and the ball bounced unpredictably, the Mighty Dees stuck fat against a determined Kangaroos outfit to break away with two final quarter goals to none to win AFLW Preliminary Final 2 by 17 points — an all-time high winning margin between these two teams.  From the outset it was a fiercely fought contest with Melbourne unable to find the ball in space. North really amped up their one-percenters an

    NOT A MOMENT TO MISS by Meggs

    The AFLW Season 7 fixture was carefully crafted to purposely handicap the better teams and give the expansion and developing sides an easier draw.  Nonetheless, this weekend’s Preliminary Finals will showcase the Lions, Demons, Crows and Roos, teams widely accepted as the best 4 in the competition.   In Friday night’s Prelim 1 the minor premiers, Brisbane, will start warm favourites at home against Adelaide.   On Saturday afternoon at Ikon Park, Prelim 2 between Melbourne and North is

    STICK TO YOUR GUNS by Meggs

    The Dees convincingly overcome the fast-starting reigning-premiers Adelaide to win by 21 points in a fiery Qualifying Final match at Ikon Park on Friday evening.     In that first quarter Adelaide jumped out of the blocks kicking their first goal inside 20 seconds finishing with 3 goals to nil. All was quiet at Ikon Park.     Melbourne, having easily outplayed lesser opponents over the past six weeks took time to ratchet up their intensity.  But, by mid to late first quarter, the Dees be

    HEAVYWEIGHTS by Meggs

    AFLW heavyweights Melbourne and Adelaide kick off the AFLW Season 7 Final Series with a massive Qualifying Final clash at Ikon Park this Friday night at 7:10pm.  The game promises to be a cracker.   Last season’s Grand Final combatants last met in Round 1where Melbourne came away with a strong 18-point victory at Glenelg Oval. The Dees will be hoping to replicate the result and move directly to the Preliminary Final.    While Adelaide may not have been as intimidating this season as in p

    MISSED IT BY THAT MUCH by Meggs

    Congratulations to Daisy’s Dees on a huge 78-point one-sided win against West Coast in challenging windy and wet conditions at Casey Fields.     The banner celebrating Sarah Lampard’s 50 games was a victim of the wind, but nonetheless Lampy received a warm round of applause from the parochial crowd in attendance.   Melbourne has the double-chance and is excited about its chances in the Season 7 AFLW finals. If this means the Grand Final is played at Metricon and the Demond make it, then
