  1. I honestly don't think the AFL cares about that. That to me was very clear in 2008, when the club celebrated its 150th birthday. The AFL used that year to celebrate 150 years of football and barely made any mention of Melbourne as the pioneer club.
  2. If Darcy was uncomfortable with the behaviour of the supporters, then it's clear indication that that's not what he intended, and surely the playing group can't be held responsible for the behaviour of the filthy supporters. Okay, most of the playing group, Maynard will always be a specimen of filth to me.
  3. FFS, I'm sick and tired of the discourse around poor Clarry. Back at the start of the year there was doubt he would even be playing. Given he'd had such an interrupted preseason, and the months of [censored] he went through both personally and in the public eye, I give full credit to him that he's been not only able to play every game so far, but for a few weeks with a broken hand. And for the most part his statistics are still above average. Yes, there is pressure on him, and yes, there's an extra load on him now that Trac is out, but I wish people would just get of his back. He's had a remarkable turnaround, but seriously what did they expect, humongous change overnight? Mental health struggles don't work like that.
  4. Garry Lyon reported yesterday on SEN that he went along to training on Wednesday, and Trac wanted to go to training to help out and the club has told him stay home. Seems he's bored at home at the moment and wants to get back into it! Doesn't sound like someone dissatisfied with the club, does it? Poor bloke, he can't run, can't do gym for 7 weeks, can't do contact sport for 12 weeks, it's going to be a long stretch for him, isn't it!! Cue more recipes for Tiktok, I think....!
  5. This is what I've got issue with. The media have been salivating in Collingwood lately and scathing on Melbourne, all on made up narratives to suit their agenda, whatever it is. It was good to see both Goody and Trac throwing shade on the BS reporting that Trac's family were not happy with the club's handling of it. What did Caroline Wilson base that off? The fact Trac deleted a couple of Instagram posts. That's her evidence. She's a hack. Were the media this scathing last year on Collingwood when Cox played through and completed a game with broken ribs and it wasn't until THE NEXT DAY that his ruptured spleen was detected, by which point he'd lost 3 litres of blood? Were the media this scathing back when the same thing happened to Matthew Lloyd, and his was detected 2 days later, and he was told if he'd gone to sleep he wouldn't have woken up? He continued playing when the club doctors he was "just winded". I actually give credit to Melbourne for putting him in an ambulance before the game was over. The hospital didn't pick up on it until 2 am, after 3 previous scans didn't pick it up.
  6. It's hilarious how it reckons Jack Viney has a mullet, but not Ollie Sestan!!!
  7. Unless any of us are premiership players, why would any of us get one? These are presented to the players, not anyone else.
  8. Yeah, the women's one was nothing like that, none of the bling on it. That one to me is still too blingy
  9. My take of it is that it's Collingwood yet again trying to bully their way into wanting their own outcome. I don't have an issue with rings per se, but it would be a club thing if they want to do that, not the AFL. The players get medals from the AFL, the club can commemmorate it anyway they like. Melbourne did present rings, and they look great, certainly not the ugly, garish thing that was on Twitter yesterday, but a classy ring with the MFC emblem and engraving on the inside. But my point was, it was a club thing. If Collingwood want to give their players rings, go for it. But don't bully the rest of the clubs and the AFL to do it.
  10. The guy who started Hertz was apparently a school mate a long time friend of Ron Barassi, and it’s through that that Hertz has been a long time sponsor of Melbourne.
  11. It's such a beautiful story, I'm so glad KC is healthy now. How amazing is Mali for her paying tribute to her little brother like that!
  12. Long story of the representation of the flags. In short a few years ago the rights to the flag were sold to a clothing company who decided to exploit it for monetary gain, to the point where they were charging exorbanent fees for the use of the image and not investing it in indigenous programs like they promised. In fact they were threatening to sue people for using the flag without paying for it, which lead to a campaign to reclaim the rights and boycott that company. AFL were supportive of that campaign and they refused to pay to use the rights. Last year the federal government bought the rights back and made the use of the flag available for everyone to use again.
  13. I remember one time at the MCG, I think it was 1989, when Grinter squarely laid a punch in the guts of a Richmond player and got 7 weeks for his efforts (he had some suspended penalties on him). If he played today he'd be the most heavily fined player in the AFL.
  14. We absolutely should have won that game. We should win this given it's at the MCG and away from the kitty litter tray.
