Western Footscray or whatever your irrelevant club is called has won 1 flag in 67 years and 2 in a century. It’s why you’re irrelevant. Your solitary flag won in the lifetime of now retired supporters was a fluke. A gift from the AFL and the umpires. Rules were changed just to give you poor flogs a chance and the worst umpiring display in the history of finals was just enough to get a middling club the flag. Ever since you won that flag I’ve been hoping and praying that we didn’t break our drought in such a flukey, embarrassing way. Thankfully we are a real premiership team that actually deserved our flag, we were the best club in 2021 and won the flag. The bullfrogs have never been the best team in the league in my lifetime, we now have.Melbourne supporters, you realise one flag in 57 years is not going to wipe away the humiliation, the cheating, the embarrassment of Melbourne’s mismanagement.
I remember laughing at you as you all worked hard to wipe your debt, while starving your football department of funds to develop your players. You starved your business How many first round draft picks went to Melbourne to see their career die? How many times did other clubs pick up these talented but under developed players and have to cut them lose because younger players were already in front of them. Typical neo economics, it just shows it doesn’t work.
The AFL, I.e. all of us, had to bail you out, by paying for your coach, appointing a chairperson who actually knew how to run a club.
I would take this sh*te from Hawthorn supporters and tap my hat to them. But I am simply incredulous at the gall and sheer delusion of Melbourne supporters thinking they have become somebody. One flag paid for by the AFL, I.e. all of us who pay for our memberships or AFL memberships are stakeholders. About time you paid us back. Back it up before mouthing off.
I would never tip my hat to Hawthorn or anyone else for that matter but I guess when your club is so sh*t you have to live vicariously through others. Lucky you remember laughing at us, it must be some consolation through your salty tears.
