    Could just be me, but I sometimes feel this board becomes more dynamic after a loss

    Problems + time + lack of personal responsibility for the outcome = creative solutions

    Importantly, both are midfielders where you need first response. Our midfield is still shallow at the top end after Oliver and Viney. Can look awesome at times, but gets bullied by big mature midfield groups on other occasions. Sydney, North (prior years), Geelong, Collingwood, Richmond. Not ideal when we aren’t a defensive side.

    I agree with this - Pies clearly better than us - and that's ok, we still have alot of development, Hawks and arguably Port as well (we will see next week)

    Yeah it’s a funny one. If Trac, Oliver, Hogan, Brayshaw, and Lever (rip) all clicked on the same day we’d be a decent side, but obviously inconsistency means we get maybe two of them having a good day at any given time.

    Remember when we were no good as we hadn’t beaten anyone. Then Collingwood beat us and they were good because they beat us.

    Oh look people already thinking the Pert hiring is dodgy. I tell you what if we put Mahoney in the role they would all say he’s too inexperienced. We couldn’t really win unless we jagged Brian Cook or someone like that.

    A melbourne supporter was bashed by Collingwood supporters after monday's game. His jaw was broken on two places

    Lol if we’d won last week we could have moved to top spot if we beat Port. Now wouldn’t be surprised if we drop out of the 8 by mid-July

    Ceebs checking if you guys have discussed/laughted at this yet. Jack Watts, Jack Trengove and Jimmy Toumpas all playing SANFL this weekend. Guess all those cocky Port fans were wrong, total shock right?!

    Honestly I'd be over the moon if Trengove could get back and play good footy at AFL level for them, but the other two are no good.

    It's actually better for society when they're playing like shit.

    Was going to say, nothing good ever comes of Collingwood winning. Much better when the fair weather supporters stay away.

    That said, I'd like to think Eddie would come out and address the behaviour for a club stand point. Collingwood itself seems rather quiet.

    Are we overly harsh on our club or are we more realistic than most supporters? I read a lot of oppo boards and along with probably the Pies and Port we seem to be the most critical of our own club.

    It's probably because we can't feel like we can fully trust the club. Most melbourne people feel like Melbourne is going to Melbourne it up at some point

    Bit of both. I honestly think we have been down for so long, and so so far down, that we’ve forgotten how to do positivity.

    It doesn't help that everytime for a decade we have gotten a little bit confident we have come crashing down in the most brutal of ways.
