What They Are Saying at Princes Park



Recommended Posts

For a club that is small and irrelevant, supporters of the "big" clubs sure do love beating us.

You just sense it's a bit of classism and fear of the elite being better than them. Richmond and Collingwood supporters I know can't STAND Melbourne. Which is weird becauae they keep talking about how irrelevant we are.

Yep I get that too, especially Collingwood and Richmond - they say we're irrelevant but boy do they love beating the "toffs".

Carlton I can understand this past weekend because that was their season on the line - they get one last chance against the Pies this week.

I guess this is the most appropriate thread for this.  Apologies if it's a re-post! 

Either way, enjoy! 😎

 

I'm probably more disturbed by the fact you knew about this. Do you always stalk the losers?

Because back in the 50s and early 60s when I was at school Carlton was nearly outer suburbs and Collingwood was sacrilegious.

(I was not a participant or advocate of this being too young)

Given Carlton's proximity to the city, I find it hard to believe that Carlton was considered an outer suburb.

It might have been a distance from the leafy south east, but would have been closer to the CBD and the G than much of the south east.

This is speaking purely as someone who has lived in the south east his entire life.

WASH YOUR DAMN MOUTH OUT, BOTH OF YOU!

 I once told him if he ever dated an Essendon supporter I wouldn’t speak to her. He said that’s a little harsh, isn’t it? I said on the contrary, that’s lenient, the bit*ch is lucky I don’t kill her. 😂
 

edit: @He de mon I’m joking, of course. I wouldn’t kill her.
I’d just maim her for life. 😏

Haha, love it!

This was definitely the general sentiment at the ground too. 

Lots of noise until Melksham kicked his goal, then it was panic, then it was absolute crickets after Kozzy got the winner.

Love her passion and feel her pain. That was me when Tuohy kicked that goal after the siren.  

I will never forget that game. I was in China for work. We were meant to be back for the game but got stuck there thanks to a typhoon. I was in my hotel room watching this game on the world's worst Wifi and VPN. It kept cutting out, and I remember it froze as he was lining up for goal.

2 seconds later I get a text from my dad.... "I f*ing hate Geelong".

I cried.

Better than standing on the Gary Ablett terrace directly in line with the kick!

I don’t get to do it often, but when appropriate I remind the ‘irrelevant’ accusers that the original rules of Australian footy are the “Rules of The Melbourne Football Club”, which they can see displayed at the National Sports Museum. No MFC = no footy (a long bow, I know, but never fails to shut them up). We couldn’t be MORE relevant.

That was wild, and it was exactly the vibe in the Southern Stand. Anger, followed by utter silence, and then some punching happened.

It’s hard for us to understand it in the context of how good Melksham and Kozzie were, but that was also one of the almightiest chokes in AFL history. Playing for finals. 7 points up with 2 minutes to play. 

I love that it happened to their horrible, whiny, entitled supporters. Their players are actually much more likeable than their supporters. They deserve to stay out in the cold for longer until they learn some manners.

The truth is that if not for the utter bungling incompetence of the Carlton Football Club on 5 occasions in the last 2 minutes then we lose that match. 

  1. Melky outmarks 3 Carlton defenders, all taller than him.  
  2. Newnes drops a simple uncontested mark when Viney over kicks it inside 50
  3. Owies miskicks a 15m uncontested backwards pass to "Woof" and it bounces short
  4. Saad's kick down the line to a Carlton 3 on 1 doesn't result in a Carlton mark
  5. Hunt's kick back down the line to a Carlton 3 on 1 doesn't result in a Carlton mark and in fact it hits Young in the head

Pickett goal!

I always run with "Melbourne invented football and built the MCG". The second claim is a longish bow but there's no space for reasonableness in footy arguments 😂

It's always good to educate people, I had a Richmond nuffie look at me in surprise once; they didn't even know that we were at the G before them! I said, "ah you're not aware of Punt Rd Oval??" Some people have no idea

    CHANGES 2022 Part Three 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

    LIVE IN THE MOMENT by Meggs

    The final home and away match of Season 7, sees the mighty Dees at Fortress Casey hosting the 16th placed West Coast.     A win assures the Dees of a Top-2 finish, with the ultimate placings dependent upon the previous night’s result between Brisbane and Collingwood and the relative percentages.   As our match is anticipated to be one-sided, interest may turn to monitoring the live ladder to see whether or not Melbourne has secured the minor premiership.     The Demons (Lions and Cro
