Steven May Suspended by the Club

Having suffered concussion a couple of times playing, you do learn that it is easy to do your narna in the week afterwards. I wonder why Jake gets off without penalty?

Possibly should be, but we may have to send you before the panel as well, for using a ‘fake word’ in place of ‘egregious’ 🤣.

'Aggegious' = Adj. When one egregious circumstance is looking like turning into a series of very unfortunate occurrences; ongoing, aggregating egregiousnesses; see Melbourne Demons season 2022 in-between rounds 12 and 13.

Gutted, very very gutted. A stupid thing to do under the protocol. The team will be severely impacted now.

But right at the bottom of all my disappointment I see a very ballsy decision that successful organisations make. You aren't bigger than the team and whether you are the best or worst player on the lost you will be punished. If it hurts the team then that is May's fault.

A neologism adjective, meaning wicked and aggressive.

They both have to do community work to atone there mis step.. 

May gets the added penalty of a suspension because he was drinking while injured which is a big no, no.

To keep a culture strong, you have to be impartial when it comes to addressing slip ups.  The personalities and short-term affects can't come into it or the whole thing erodes away.  Yes, it sucks not having May this week, and who knows, it might cost us a win, but from a long term perspective, it it the right call without a doubt.

This bye week we need the whole club to return to our lockdown hub and have a long chat about whether they're serious about their intentions this year or whether they're content for 2021 to be a flash in the pan

I hope the media digs in. It give us something to fight for, something to prove again. 

Adversity has brought the best out of us before, may it do so again.

The big news here isn't even that he was drinking and that they had a scuffle.

It was that they immediately self reported and the club was pretty swift in deciding action.

It shows strong leadership and self-awareness. A blip on the radar.

Dees by 8 goals.

  Let him stew for the next three weeks until he can play again. Will only make the team stronger.  And if we lose this week let him take responsibility for it. His next game we be against the Lions and he owes us. 

….and make sure that he stretches his hammies real well before he gets on the field!

I think something like this will happen regardless of the result next week. Reality is we all thought the team were in 1st gear / 2nd  gear for the start of the season and expected them to step it up when the challengers came. But, they've engaged the clutch and stalled the call.

Was just speaking to someone who's well connected down there. 

Steven May's cousin, who he was close with passed away only last week which has completely shocked his family.

This probably explains why he was on the drink.

That is incredibly sad news. However dealing with grief through alcohol is a bad idea at the best of times. 
There are a lot better options available.

Think you'll find that Steven May's way of dealing with grief is to turn to the grog. 

His last indiscretion was because of a relationship break down with his ex who'd moved down from the Gold Coast with him.

Thanks Daz, context matters deeply.  - There should be a 'care' emoticon like FB on here... rather than the face palm one.

So presumably Melksham et al who were there, were well aware of this context, actually being quite supportive given the context...and then a bit of gravy was flicked and it all got emotional.

Because of May we have lost this game. If we play Tomlinson it’s game over hopefully we can debut Turner

Which is a big worry and something the club needs to help him with.

    EYES ON RED & BLUE by Wilma from West Perth

    It was a great weekend for the Red and the Blue on this side of the Nullarbor.   On Saturday, West Perth bested Claremont by two goals after leading all day with the exception of a few early minutes to take out the WAFL Premiership and on Sunday, Melbourne scored a five goal win over Fremantle with a stunning four goals to zip in the final term.   Again, it was the red and the blue leading nearly all day to record their fifth win from six games.   The ou

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES by The Oracle

    Part One - ZERO HOUR, 9AM The AFL Trade Period begins in earnest at 9.00am amid the announcement of a bombshell by North Melbourne’s 2021 Number 1 draft pick Jason Horne-Francis that he wants to leave the club and return to his home state to play for Port Adelaide.  The Herald Sun is reporting that “Horne-Francis will cite the instability at North Melbourne this year in his first season“ along with a likely continuation of chaos as a result of the uncertainty surrounding coach Alastair

    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
