There's a nice symmetry, a poetry, to it. Schwabby and I departing on the same day.
Like him, I've become a lightning rod of late for the frustration, anger and disillusionment of online MFC supporters struggling to come to terms with what's happened to this once great club.
This is understandable. It's bloody hard to face the reality that you support a football club with an ingrained culture of failure of over 50 years standing. One day, when things settle down, I'm quite sure you'll look back and appreciate the efforts I've taken to help you wake up, recognize and acknowledge the situation. If you haven't already.
Today was a watershed day for us, no doubt about it. The day the MFC 'proletariat' fully woke up to its plight. It's a bitter pill to swallow to have the The AFL step in to assume the running - by proxy - of the club, but as the sick patient that we are we must accept that this is what must take place for true healing to occur. It's our only shot at survivial at this stage.
It's certainly better than the alternative had drastic change not occurred ... extinction.
So, good bye fellow Demons. Keep up the good fight. And try to listen and take note when you can of the likes of OldDee and WhyYouLittle. Posters like these men (and women) represent the wise and knowing elders among you ... they are the online conscience of the MFC.
Go Dees. Now and Forever.
