I'm not worried about Dudbourne at all. In fact, I reckon they are average and are guaranteed to fall in a hole at some point.

I just can't stand their fans. There's a real front runner and smart arse attitude to them. They pop up out of the ground infrequently, and when they do, the attitude is like they've been a mega success for decades. You'd think they'd have a smidgeon of humility given their last 56 years, and keep a bit of a lid on it, but nope.
I’ve found Aints fans are like that, too. One of the reasons that they’re high on my list of teams I can’t stand.

Surprised Shedda, Bolton or Nank didn't get at least 1 vote. Not surprised with the rest though.

Probably was a Dees supporter and only knew Petraccas name like most of them.

Super unlikeable team. No class, no humility.

Rapidly approaching Essendon, Port and Geelong territory.

My number 2 gear grinder (after umpiring standards) is players who limp, sook, moan and grimace when their team is DEFENDING, but move like Usain Bolt in a split second when there's a chance they can get the footy.

Number 1: Connor Rozee
Number 2: Jake Stringer
Number 3: Gary Rohan

That's my podium
I'd add Motlop in position 1.5

Everyone has at least one of these Melbourne supporter mates. They don't have a membership and they don't even care for the footy unless Melbourne are up. Then they'll tell you how bad you're going. I hope to hell we get a chance to pull their pants down come finals. I also want to see Mansell on Pickett for the whole game.

We were the walking wounded on the bench at the end. I don't think we made an interchange in the last 10 mins, may have been longer. I could see at the ground 26 remaining interchanges for what seemed an eternity.
Port beat us with no interchange.
They played with heart.

That is sensational!

If you notice a rise in the Hallmark share price this quarter, it's because we've all started doing this.

Dear Melbourne supporter,
I think you're still kind of relevant. Keep doing your best. xoxo

Thought it was a free to Mansell watching that incident live and just saw vision again of it on First Crack. Pickett drives his elbow into Nigels neck/throat and Pickett gets the free?? Farcical

Melbourne players got very cocky and lippy the end of the game.
The losers aren't even April premiers. LOL at getting chirpy in April. Plenty of better teams have come unstuck thinking they were *smile* hot in April. See you in September chumps

I choose not to associate with those of the other side of the railway line.

In fact I think I only had one Dees supporter on my Facebook , removed the immediately

Strange post.

Bachar had a really poor game by his standards and seems not yet to have recovered from his brave efforts in the GF.
Marlion made some mistakes but was clearly among our best. Most who voted for best player seem to agree.
Seeing this post re Bachar have me the chance to comment on that goal that Petracca kicked in Q4, that snap when he kind of hook-kicks to his right half crouched after bending down to collect the ball.
I thought at the time, what on earth was Bachar doing? Then I saw it again on a footy show, including front-on vision.

As Petracca is off balance, Houli actually catches up with him and is running beside him, within arm's reach virtually. Yet he never even stretches an arm out; makes no effort to tackle at all. It's like he just watches on in awe letting CP get the shot on goal away.

I have no idea what Bachar was doing - trying to run by for the handball receive? Quite bizarre ... and truly non-competitive!

Yep, it was a complete joke. The match announcer had not even received the notification. You can hear someone say, just go Petracca.

So they probably went with the wrong Christian.

Certainly the coaches didn't agree.
