Any player, coaching staff member, or fan of Melbourne Victory Football Club, based in Melbourne, Australia. They compete in the Australian A-League Football Championship.
The term has its origins in the club's player recruitment policy, which was widely seen as "retarded" by fans of rival cubs, and as the Melbourne team has no official mascot, the term "tard" became widely used by rival fans Australia-wide.
The term stuck when the Melbourne football club's management appeared to be happy with poor on-field results.
Guy 1: We beat Melbourne 3-0
Guy 2: Yeah, and didn't they have Muscat sent off?
Guy 1: Yep...stupid Tard!
