Steven May Suspended by the Club

Whether we like it or not it's something and something that could threaten to torpedo this ship but also bind us together. I don't know how it got to this point but we have to take the second option, there is no alternative.

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.

Just because a bloke mouths off when he's had a few does not make him an alcoholic 

I'll take it you're one of those people that's never had a beer and said something you maybe shouldn't have 

Bloody hell the dramatic reactions from some here is nauseating

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.

 

Sums up my feeling perfectly (well, perhaps not the love Melk part, but i do like him).

Did he say why?  And did he say what sort of intervention the AFL should make?

I think AA is extreme, however I would be very keen for the club to put some pressure on for him to give up the booze for the season. In a similar way a driver forfeits his right to driving when he breaks the law I feel that May has breached the club’s confidence in him being able to make the right decisions surrounding alcohol. Giving it up for the season shows genuine remorse and indicates we wants to do better for his teammates. 

But hey maybe I’m sitting too high on my high horse. I just think his decision making has been [censored] poor and alcohol has played a big part.

If we’re looking at it purely from a breaching codes of conduct side of things, aside from making a clown of himself and clearly making poor choices what has he actually done that would require AFL intervention? If anything perhaps there could be an argument for the AFL enforcing a ban on Melksham for violent conduct, however he’s injured anyway. 

Commentators and media pundits push these stories as far as they go because they know it gets more viewers, readers, listeners, and followers. It’s not because they think it’s right, it’s because they smell blood.

From other occasions before arriving at melbourne he has history. Clearly it would be better if he did not drink. I can handle mine which a lot cannot.

Devil's advocate for a second but there has to be a reason that more than one person is calling for AFL intervention other than purely having an agenda and being out to 'get us', supporting a team that is counter to us etc.

A friend of mine who was a model citizen, capable, polite, always correct and popular when sober used to become a monster when he drank. Could not stop, became loud, aggressive and violent. He knew he had a problem and drank infrequently but if he relented and had one beer he had to keep drinking till he passed out or worse. Ruined his family and career and eventually topped himself. Anyone who becomes violent and unsociable because of drinking definitely has a serious problem..

The AFL, probably due to the club's immediate action and communications with them, has handled this situtation well and as it should have been. Kudos to them at HO.

Russell was comparing this to the QLd Hub issues with the Tiges, but the Tiges did a cover up  etc , and hence they were called out for more action.

Goody knows there's complaceny about and called it out internally 3 weeks ago.

Goody/Roffey/Pert/Richardson/Gawn/Viney/Lever.......   will not let this de-rail the hard work.

That's my hope and trust in them anyway.

I think it's neither. It's the media trying to force an issue as they always do. If they can put enough pressure on to force an AFL intervention, then the story continues or gets bigger - that's all they want! If nothing comes of it, the story will fade and they will move on to their next victim.

Correct there is only one option but lots cannot achieve it.

100%. The Media push these stories to keep themselves employed. The Bigger the HUN Headline the better. AFL 360 will be going full tilt. 
If the altercation had not occurred it probably would be all Tasmania, but for now that is forgotten. 
I wish the MFC would make one Statement and then Lock it down. It can be sorted internally, but won’t be sadly.

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.

Please ban yourself from 'Land THBT.

    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
