You need to become more like Passmore and give off the kind of vibes that suggests you are somewhat "unpredictable". The kind of person who, after a few too many anti-North jokes, might urinate in a petrol tank or even a stubby if the opportunity arose.
It is alright for us. Their teams are flogs and we are not them.Why should supporters of other clubs go easy on North Melbourne or why should they comment on the club and players with any degree of informed knowledge and reason when 90% of North Melbourne supporters on here bag the club and players mercilessly and with the same amount of ignorance?
My two-club-but-mostly-Pies-and-fair-enough son fished out his North hoodie this week - basically said that if you support North everyone is sad for you and leaves you alone, but if you support Collingwood and they have a loss everyone is lining up with big banter.
I don’t cop any. People clearly know better.
We definitely dont deserve it. We are the greatest club on the planet win lose or draw. REAL SUPPORTERS STICK BY THE CLUB IN THESE TRYING TIMES. Its easy when we are winning but the club needs its supporters even more when things are not going how we would like but it will turn around you can take that to the bank.We deserve it. Club’s in an embarrassing point in its history. What do you even say in retort? Nothing.
All the other clubs are dogs anyway.
I still don't think it's a thing.
There is a residual perception that a game against the roos is going to be difficult.
I've got a Carlton mate who still thinks every game he plays against us will be the one they drop.
It took us nearly 50 years to get that reputation. We have just about lost it.
