  1. Absolutely his playing style determination and talent are just like the great RDB
  2. Exactly, I recall Footscray many years ago being stripped of its best players, Kelvin Templeton (capt), Garry Baker, Alan Stoneham,, Laurie Sandilands (capt) Robbie McGhie, Bernie Quinlan to name a few. It ripped the guts out of the club and broke their supporters hearts. I would hate it if Melbourne was seen as a development centre for the larger clubs and would lose interest.
  3. A good friend of mine went to school with Murray Weideman. He roved to Murray at primary school, taught him everything he knew about football. On a more serious note he said that he was a genial person -in other words a good bloke.
  4. Exactly, He is a bully who mocks and picks on the weakest sections of Australian society. In particular the aboriginals.
  5. Under Section 9 of the Racial Discrimination Act 1975 nationality is included in those criteria covered by the act as unlawful
  6. I recall going to a supporters dinner at the Sydney Cricket Ground in 1996 where Jim was the main speaker He told of playing a reserves match against Essendon early in his career where they they were making disparaging remarks about Ireland so he meted out the appropriate retaliation to the main culprit after that he was chased around the ground by almost the entire Essendon team trying to bash him. So yes he was abused based on his nationality.
  7. Absolutely, best comment so far, it was a cowardly disgrace
  8. Just implied it. The point is that once these arguments become personal the focus is shifted away from the club and players onto the posters to the detriment of Demonland. I don't happen to agree with Dr. D but his comments weren't offensive or personal and they are fair.
  9. There is a spelling error on the line relating to the IC (Interchange). "Darft Pick" should be "Daft Pick" The word is British informal English meaning stupid or insane. Of course Melbourne has made many daft picks. The excreciable Nield era was noted for them. Fortunately I think we are far more professional now and it would be unfortunate to label the player on the interchange bench as a daft pick, although at some time the description may be accurate.
  10. My brother and his wife had six children all of whom were Melbourne supporters. however at one stage one of his daughters announced that she was transferring her allegiances to Richmond. My brother replied well every week we go to the football to follow Melbourne and you can come along once or twice a year when Richmond play Melbourne , she reconsidered her loyalties.
  11. Neeld, Every time I hear that name I feel a twinge of anger
  12. A plea to our recruiting staff. Please no more classical music composers. We have had a Gilbert two Sullivans, one Strauss and two Wagners and only one of them has been OK
  13. True but Melbourne is an easy target partly because of its perceived culture but largely because it is warranted
  14. More likely the Cairns Carnations- They wilt when the heat's applied
