WCW, can you advise why the banner is never turned both ways so people in the Southern stand can see the message.

 

We’d love to be able to do this (a “showing”) every week but for various reasons we can’t. Sometimes it’s because we haven’t enough time. We follow a strict timeline out in the middle; every single minute is accounted for. This is usually the reason at away games.

The elements also dictate whether we can do a showing. If it’s raining or windy it’s a no-go. (Say what you want about Marvel, but it’s banner crew’s best friend 😁).

We did one on Friday night. This is only the second time we’ve been able to do it this season. Two in 12 rounds is about what’s to be expected given the above reasons.

Realised there’s been 12 rounds, not 11. My how time flies!

I remember in the good-old, bad-old days we had Melbourne - Masters of the MCG and Melbourne Greatest Ever Exponents of Perfection Football displayed across the northern and southern stands in perpetuity. There was a third one l have forgotten.

A friend of mine who is now on the committee of Coterie was in the cheer squad in the 60s and 70s, he said he has one of those large banners at his house, and he said it went half way around the old southern stand.  I'd love to see it!

I recall the first one BD.

The second.... see below

Don't recall the third.

I remember a very long one that always amazed me how they could make a banner with that many words but didnt recall the words.  I suspect the one you are referring to is the second mentioned by BD here.

I always recall at Richmond home games they would have their own running.  The one i recall was at the Punt Road end.  Can't recall if it was along the boundary or along the edge of the 1st tier.

After checking with my older bro, Crusty Demon who's been following since about 65, he stated the following...

..."Masters of the MCG was a famous one I remember very well.  It was always placed on the boundary fence on the northern wing in the early 70s.

I don't remember the other one though.

I do remember a cheer squad banner at Vic Park in the mid seventies that actually said   '[censored] on Crappy Collingwog'   😂 True!  "  .....

Was involved in those as well. Try lugging a very wet 50my long banner home on the train.

Jake Melksham 100+1 MFC games this week on the banner?

Apparently it was his 100th game against St. Kilda.

But we all forgot! 😔

 

That was Jake’s 214th game in total, his 100th as a Demon.

We don’t acknowledge a player’s Melbourne-only games tally. We acknowledge their total AFL games, which we did for his 200th last year.

Besides, we’d never forget a milestone. 🙂

All good. 😎👍🏻

I greatly appreciate the explanation.

I wasn't familiar with the process of acknowledging milestone games.

Nice pic @WalkingCivilWar!

Yes it is a great pic. But I prefer Demonland’s photo of the week, and not just because I’m in it, except totally coz I’m in it. 😁

You can’t see me but I’m holding up the #41 jumper pic. I thought I was holding it up showing the other side which is #37, but it’s not upside-down so for me it’s a win. I don’t do giant heads anymore because it’s not a good look for them to be upside-down. 🤭

Who are the most sought for players when it comes to holding their Giant heads?

    CONSISTENCY by The Oracle

    "I think we have got a team that can win a premiership, and if we get in this year, I don't think there is a team that is going to want to play us. This year is not a write-off, I don't concede that. Not at all." — Collingwood President Jeff Browne. I love this sort of optimism from the Magpie President after his club’s eleven goal defeat at the hands of the fast rising Hawks. It’s consistent with the fighting spirit of the club that won last year’s flag.  I only wish I could say the s

    FEARS by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s worst fears about the absence of Max Gawn were realised when it received a shellacking from Fremantle’s ruckmen Sean Darcy and Luke Jackson who dominated the hit out tally in their game at Optus Stadium on Sunday by a massive 47 to 19. As a result, the 50-point deficit at the end of the game proved to be a loss that was long foreseen that was two years in the making and demonstrated a complete lack of hindsight and planning from the club. To add insult to injury, Jackson was a D

    RAIN CHECK by Whispering Jack

    The Frankston Dolphins broke a run of six straight losses against their neighbours, the Casey Demons and kept their hopes for a long-awaited return to the VFL finals alive with a 27 point victory over at Kinetic Stadium. Casey was welcomed to the Peninsula by grey skies, heavy rain and angry seas with threatening white-capped waves whipped up by gale force winds. After a slow start in the opening term when they failed to take advantage of the breeze, it appeared that the Demons had decided
