Are you a lawyer?

Relating to another human being is a totally different comparison from a Club.

As for others re the new binary that’s nothing to do with we or they as part of a group. 

You obviously are part of a group if you call yourselves a THEY  it a Dees supporter is a WE. It doesn’t matter about sub groups. 

MFC has differing sub groups ie Board Coterie Football Dept 
Members fans but we are all supporters. The team is not a they like we   are not a they as we belong to the MFC all of us. 

I am not a lawyer nor a wordsmith just a proud Demon supporter of 66 years that is part of our club and involved so a WE fits perfectly. 

But if you don’t like my  opinion and prefer to be a THEY so be it. 

BTW We are all Australians who are nationalised THEY are NOT  who ain’t. 
Pretty simple isn’t it You either belong or you don’t. 

Try to think about it Am I  a Demon supporter ? YES then I am a WE That’s the  bonding not whether I am. Cotorie Army or member or fan. 

The THEY are other  teams club  members or AFL staff or filth trajics. NOT the Melb team who might miss a certain player if he is injured. 

OUR team will miss him. WE will miss  him.

Some of  you will get it but others will be stubborn and try an alternative view that does not fit the we or they terminology or category.

Conflating the Team with its supporters is like sixteen year old girls dressing up as Taylor Swift

No I'm an overweight 75 year old wadling around in a MFC jumper with number 6 on the back.

This is pathetic and I expected better from you

Either plays back and a direct swap for T. Mac going forward or back to Casey Woeful last night!

That looks the way to go, swap with T Mac.

He is either still injured, horribly out of form, or simply not a natural key forward, despite some good efforts there.

Petty has played his best footy down back and Tom certainly has forward craft.

Thanks Captain Obvious Jenkins.

Play him down back or play him at Casey. We are not good enough to carry a player who is a net negative.

I've listened to Jenkins a few times on SEN. Loves to make controversial comments. I think he's a Kane Cornes wannabe but doesn't possess Cornes understanding of the game. wouldn't pay too much attention to him.

Based off his season so far he isn't wrong.

Even assuming your assessment is accurate (which it's not), we were last night.

It is accurate. We have less depth than last year and against the Cats and Blues over the next fortnight and other contenders later in the year we can’t carry players. Couldn’t care less about teams like the Tigers. 

The window for us is closing so we need to make every post a winner.

Tom still can’t change directions or get off the ground. The moment you throw him forward he’ll turn back in to a witches hat. A few errant kicks aside he’s playing well down back. Why move a player in form who hasn’t been good forward since early 2021?

Petty:
Hawthorn: 9 marks, straightened us up
Port: played a role forward in the second half
Adel: 1.3 

He looked every bit a forward until whatever happens when he plays Brisbane. And whatever happened to the rest of the side too.

Even last night, took 3 marks, dropped at least 3 more simple ones. Confidence isn’t great but otherwise putting in the effort, his pressure and chasing makes a big difference and allows us to get the zone right.

Everyone just needs to take a deep breath and back him in. I see nothing but a player who’s lost some touch and confidence. 

By the way, they same issues are hampering him when he’s been down back the last 2 years. 

A but of continuity, sports psychology and some better ball use and he’ll be back marking everything at CHF

Jenkins wouldn’t know what a key forward is if he tripped over one.

The man loved a handball in to the open goal so much he makes Fritsch look honest.

    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

    The Demons were blown out of the water in the first quarter and clawed their way back into the contest but it was a case of too little too late as they lost another close one to Carlton losing by 1 point at the MCG.

    MELBOURNE BUSINESS by The Oracle

    In days of old, this week’s Thursday night AFL match up between the Demons and the Blues would be framed on the basis of the need to redress the fact that Carlton “stole” last year’s semi final away from Melbourne and with it, their hopes for the premiership.  A hot gospelling coach might point out to his charges that they were the better team on the night in all facets and that poor kicking for goal and a couple of lapses at the death cost them what was rightfully theirs. Moreover, now was
