Flags and Melbourne icons

138 posts in this topic

I noticed the Skipping Girl flag last night - great idea that got me thinking....

There are several Melbourne iconic images:

Skipping Girl

Beach Boxes

Trams

Shrine.

I'm sure that we can think of many others but as we Pride ourselves on being Melbourne, we should appropriate all of those images onto flags to show at games. It also stops that other team using them

im not sure about the shrine because you will have idiots saying we are disrespecting it if we turn it into a banner imo

We don't have to use the Shrine, but it would be good to 'own' the Melbourne iconic images.

If I had a time machine and could go back and see anything in Melbourne's history it would be Cole's Book Arcade. This is my idea based on the arcade's famous sign.

Fucking love the idea of Melbourne icons and cultural references being made into flags and two sticks. Please get more of this happening.

What about Roof Top Bars, Tapas Joints and Laneways?

At least try making your sarcastic jibes a little witty.

cos it would have stated that at times your view would be obscured.

and even if it doesn't it goes with the expectation of being in Bay 17

there's plenty of other yarraside members a little fustrated by the flags, but this is mainly because it's in the wrong part of the terrace and should be used lower down, not near the back blocking other peoples view

Incorrect. The flags are exactly where the should be. If you have a problem with having your vision of the game obscured, kindly move along to one of the other 22,000 empty seats where you shall be able to see unhindered.

This is what shits me about our supporters. They want to be near the noise, the action and atmosphere but are not willing to make the sacrifices to contribute to it.

this is wrong. flags are fine, just seeing goals is what i like and i dont mind them blocking my view, its just if they are

for a long amount of time, and flags add to the terrace.

the part about wanting to hear the noise and not willing to make sacrifices to contribute is crap cause every week i'm there

chanting every chant as loud as i can, and get pissed off by everyone who doesn't, which is mainly the people in the middle.

No. this is wrong. If you want to be guaranteed seeing goals and other events during play, the terrace is not the place to do it. Granted, it would be great if we could see everything all the time but our support comes before our personal satisfaction. It's just the way it is and like i said, plenty of free seats getting around.

The flags are going nowhere.

It really pissed me off, against Brisbane a few guys behind us kept yelling at people to put down the flags, then against Adelaide my mate gave the massive flag a wave for a while and people behind him yelled and told him to put it down. It was his first ever game and he was happy to do it to be part of the Yarraside when Ando asked for us to do so! Anyway he put it down and was confused as why would a flag be in there not to be used.

Anyway all explained to him but yeah, when people are willing to participate in the terrace particularly a first timer, to have people yell out to put it down is disapointing.

FFS. We only get 7,000 people in a 30,000 seat stadium. The active scene is not somewhere to stand and just want to watch every moment. It would be good if people who hear others telling people to put the flag down, to tell them it ain't gonna happen and why!

Delicate situation as we want more people in that area but surely you know what's expected. I never read the disclosure as I only became an active member after being nicely asked lol a couple of weeks ago, but surely it's common sense?

Rant over!

People who can't deal with the flags - atmosphere sponges. Happy to soak it up, not willing to put in.

i love the flags, but you cant say there in the right spot, cos against adelaide there was parts of the game where clearly it wasn't, + im as dedicated to supporting and chanting for the heart as you

first flags are demanded, now you want certain intervals for them to be waved dafuq just move more up the back or to the right/left of the flag a bit it aint hard, plus there is a big screen that shows replays :up:

i'd suggest wave the flags on the top level of the wings but then it'd probably get complaints from green seats being unable to see.

No, we are listening but you don't seen to understand. We're not questioning your commitment to the terrace, we're just letting you know that the terrace is where the flags go.

To be completely honest, we don't have nearly enough flags in the terrace. We need a few more really big ones.
