I'm halfway listening to Gus and Gawny's interview with Jeff Farmer, who is idolised by almost all Demon supporters yet he made the same move to Freo in 2002 for similar sorts of reasons as Dogga.  It's unfathomable that Dee supporters would boo Jeff and, for related reasons, I think that it would be a shame if Dee supporters boo Dogga.

I'm no angel (maybe that's why I'm a Demon 😀) and I'll confess to premeditated booing of Shane Woewodin when he played for Collingwood from 2003 (even though he was nudged out of Melbourne, who actually paid part of his package at Collingwood).  It didn't make me feel any better at the time; I'm actually rather ashamed of it now that I look back on it.  I can't recall booing any ex-Melbourne players since.

That's my view - each to their own.

Little disappointed with the Wiz in this one. Said he loved both clubs equally.

No issue with him having an allegiance to Freo but I've heard him on the Deebrief and other interviews before when asked where his heart was he'd reply 'Melbourne' without hesitation.

That was totally classless but I'd say retaliation for Dogs fans booing Hunter first rather than any issue with Baker.

This is what Dees fans say, but Oskar was booed before the match even started. When the players were announced individually on the giant screens there was definitely booing when he was shown.

Personally it would take a really disgusting act for me to ever boo. 

Professional sport is part of the entertainment business.  I've worked my life in the entertainment business (music) where it's generally acceptable for an audience to cheer or boo whatever they want. 

I may be wrong but, though I almost never boo, I support anyones right to do so.  Not to be able to react naturally feels almost like being controlled in some sort of fascist or communist like society or something to me.  Please relax and let others relax at the footy, cheer or boo if they want.  Please be Tolerant of opposing opinions without letting them spoil your enjoyment.  Thanks

Didn't think we announced the away team player by player on the big screen? Can't even remember it, maybe was a Rd 1 thing.

I definitely remember because I was out in the middle at the time and we all clapped when they announced Oskar (he’s very much a cheer squad favourite) and were shocked to hear booing.

I'm not a Boo'r, but have no problem with people doing it, he left the club after 3 years.  sure he went home, but it was the $$ that got him there.  wasted draft pick and resources on him, they drafted him knowing what he could become and him leaving would have changed the whole recruiting method.

Don't care really if people Boo him but some people saying we should applaud him instead is ridiculous !

I think I’m over booing. Even for umpires. I never feel good after it.

Same as like during the last quarter against Port when I threw my phone at the couch and it bounced and crashed into my favourite coffee mug and broke it and my chihuahua looked at me fearful and wide-eyed never having seen such a thing.

Time to rein in the crazy. 

Sadly we've all been there. Such a great game to relax by.

Listening Steven May on LJ yesterday, he said that Dogga rocked up to a off-season planning meeting after he had been traded was told blunty that he wasnt supposed be attending that meeting. 

The guy is genuinely from another planet. i dont think booing will phase him one bit. 

 

Saying he’s from another planet is far too generous. He’s just another thick dude on planet earth. 
 

But no boos from me. Energy wasted.

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Who would have thought?    Collingwood had a depleted side with several star players out injured, Max Gawn was in stellar form, Christian Petracca at the top of his game and Simon Goodwin was about to pull off a masterstroke in setting Alex Neal-Bullen onto him to do a fantastic job in subduing the Magpies' best player. Goody had his charges primed to respond robustly to the challenge of turning around their disappointing performance against Fremantle in Alice Springs. And if not that, t

    TURNAROUND by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons won their first game at home this year in the traditional King’s Birthday Weekend clash with Collingwood VFL on Sunday in a dramatic turnaround on recent form that breathed new life into the beleaguered club’s season. The Demons led from the start to record a 52-point victory. It was their highest score and biggest winning margin by far for the 2024 season. Under cloudy but calm conditions for Casey Fields, the home side, wearing the old Springvale guernsey as a mark of res

    POSTGAME: Rd 13 vs Collingwood

    Once again inaccuracy and inefficiency going inside 50 rears it's ugly head as the Demons suffered their second loss on the trot and their fourth loss in five games as they go down to the Pies by 38 points on Kings Birthday at the MCG.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 13 vs Collingwood

    It's Game Day and the Demons are once again faced with a classic 8 point game against a traditional rival on King's Birthday at the MCG. A famous victory will see them reclaim a place in the Top 8 whereas a loss will be another blow for their finals credentials.

    BOILED LOLLIES by The Oracle

    In the space of a month Melbourne has gone from chocolates to boiled lollies in terms of its standing as a candidate for the AFL premiership.  The club faces its moment of truth against a badly bruised up Collingwood at the MCG. A win will give it some respite but even then, it won’t be regarded particularly well being against an opponent carrying the burden of an injured playing list. A loss would be a disaster. The Demons have gone from a six/two win/loss ratio and a strong percentag

    CLEAN HANDS by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons headed into town and up Sydney Road to take on the lowly Coburg Lions who have been perennial VFL easy beats and sitting on one win for the season. Last year, Casey beat them in a practice match when resting their AFL listed players. That’s how bad they were. Nobody respected them on Saturday and clearly not the Demons who came to the game with 22 players (ten MFC), but whether they came out to play is another matter because for the most part, their intensity was lacking an
