I dunno about this idea… it’s the players’ thing and I believe they do it if they keep the opposition below 60 points.
 

Would love to see it once in the crowd with 2 minutes left in a grand final we’re about to win but I feel if we see it done 5 times a week in the crowd it kinda cheapens a concept they clearly bond around.

Agree It's  the players private celebration 

Supporters can do it any time they want after a win etc.

Maybe it's just me, but that would have seemed a more appropriate celebration for the 2006 West Coast Eagles to engage in considering the contents of what Matthew McConaughey spoke about in that restaurant.

That said, I reckon we should do it if we knock off the Filth. Rightly or wrongly, they consider us bourgeoise scum. I say we throw that back in their face in a manner they hate.

Memory is a little foggy from the broadcast, but didn't they say it was more about winning and keeping the oppo under 60 points?

100% it was this.

well actually 99% it was this - I think it was 63 points (as their average)...anyway, it wasn't the win, it was the defensive effort they celebrated.

Personally, like the Dogs and "Freed From Desire", it's best kept out of the public's eye. 

Yeah, great to see it but I'd have preferred it kept under wraps.
Surprised they left the door open TBH.

The Wolf of Wall Street was funded by stolen money from the Malaysian government. (1MDB)

Ex PM finally started a 12 year prison stretch last night.

Diamond - was that funding for the movie or for the wolf himself?

It's got a bit of "heart beats true" about it too

Love our team song, hate the delivery.  What I mean by this is that music that accompanies the words and the way it is sung is so 1950ish for the want of better words. It is so last century, tired , old, way past its use by date. Not inspiring at all. I’m an old bugger and I reckon it’s old!

Please don’t get me wrong, I wouldn’t change one word, it’s perfect, in fact I believe it should never ever be changed.  It’s just the delivery.

When our boys ‘sing’ it in the rooms after a big win it is like a war cry, a chant, bearing no resemblance to what is played over the PA system at the G that we try and sing to. 


I love hearing some of our younger crew belting out the words on train going home after a big win. The tempo that they deliver it in is exactly how team belts it out. Sounds great.

Would love to see some professional musicians bring the ‘tune’ into the 21st century. The formula is already there, up the tempo, modernise the music  so that it matches what our boys do. That way it would be a powerful chant that we could get going at the end of the game.

Could you imagine if the music was modified and played on the PA after a win at the G. I could really imagine the vast majority of our supporter base ripping into the ‘chant’ (rather than try and ‘sing’ it).   Combine it with beating our hearts. It could be our new trade mark.  It would be magnificent and intimidating all at the same time.  (Bit like the INXS theme that Port do at the start of their home games, it is just so effective).

If you don’t like the idea and think it should all stay the way it had been, all good.

Ah yes, 'modern' theme songs, what could go wrong....

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had

    CENTIMETRES by Whispering Jack

    Our game is one where the result is often decided by centimetres; the touch of a fingernail, a split-second decision made by a player or official, the angle of vision or the random movement of an oblong ball in flight or in its bounce and trajectory. There is one habit that Melbourne seems to have developed of late in its games against Carlton which is that the Demons keep finding themselves on the wrong end of the stick in terms of the fine line in close games at times when centimetres mak
