Jesus grow a hide, how soft is this world coming becoming if that throw away line offends you.

Soft  @demon3165? Maybe some people in this world are just sick of constantly being on the receiving end

of blatant untruths and prejudice because of where they live,  from people who should know better.

Refer the email signed by the Chairman dated 14 Jan 2021

You mean the email written by a past chair who is no longer on the board?  

I've had to look up that email, and I found it.  I agree,  this is one that could push the barrel as to what could be allowable.  Bartlett, though, is no longer on the board.

Now that's the way the minority want it, so the football world that says if want to be a pie supporter you have to have no teeth, bomber supporters all take drugs, demon supporters go to the snow after round two etc, so we should all stop that, the world has gone mad and people are losing their sense of humour, and humour is what this country was built on....

As WCW has said you know Kate Roffey and it's understandable that you defend her and the Board

Same could be said about you and Peter.

can't believe people seriously have a problem with the need for 20 members for nomination

other than to be just frivolous or vexatious

...and if I might ask. Why the need to raise nominations to 20 members?

There hasn't been a rush on members nominating for the board in recent times has there?

So why?

It just seemed to be pointless.

I have lived and taught in and around Moe for 50 years,   raising a large family,   among many other MCC and MFC members,

and I thoroughly resent and reject Ms Roffey's slur,  and lazy stereotyping of a wonderful community.

It was a play on words that rhyme - you might as well see it as a slur on everyone called Joe. Moe's misfortune here is that it's one of the very few place names that rhymes with personal names. Having said that, Ray from Yea or Margot from Dargo might have worked in the same context.

Oh OK

It was the last guy....

Therefore, no one will ever stretch the bounds again... Thank God for that!

I guess I'm fine then making it harder for individuals to nominate for the Board, and strengthening the Board powers through Nominations sub committee 🙄  (to solve a problem that doesn't exist)

I think your reaction of the face palm on this comment was childish.

Can you tell me why the needed to raise the nomination limit to 20 members?

It doesn't make any sense to me...but I guess you're happy to go along with whatever the board put up.

I mean it's not a big deal, but if not then why?

They can put it up even more , I don't care. As someone else said if you can't get 20 or more people to back your nomination it most likely is a waste of time. I have never just gone along with whatever the board put up, from 1983 until 2014, I have many heated talks with various board members, just because I don't bag the coaches or footy department on here do not make the mistake that I have happily accepted the plight of the club since 1964.

I get to the games a couple of hours before game time and seek out board members especially, to voice my concerns face to face.

Yep, I know you don't bag them on here and probably have mistaken that at times for going along with the status quo.

I also know you are a passionate supporter....

The noms I still don't get but anyway it is what it is and we move on to what should be a successful 2023...

Because under most constitutions you need a certain percentage of members of the membership to set these types of actions in motion.

Strange example you used of the training session roping off supporters at Gosche's Paddock.  Hello, COVID.

 

Roped off area for the directors was a feature of the “come on down, fans” training sessions before COVID. It’s something that I didn’t like, and has stuck in my memory.

As some have noted, this thread is devoid of humour and so I feel compelled to inject my own feeble contribution.

Do you own a pair of moccasins and are you likely to wear them in public?

Are you a MCC member?

Is the reason you are sick of being on the receiving end more associated with you being a teacher (sorry that wasn't funny).

Please, please tell me you're not thinking of becoming a postal worker?

have you rung or written to the club asking them why there was a roped off area for staff? If the reason doesn't sit well with you then you could submit a complaint

whining on here is probably not going to get you an answer or a resolution

I would say it is guaranteed not to DC.

    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
