  4. Will Jack Watts make us pay thread?

    It was a mongrel kick for goal too but it wobbled through. Neitz got a bit excited seconds before the siren and pushed Farmer in the back. Should have kept to his domain that day ,the forward line.
  5. I'm not sure its our ability to pull a crowd when we start winning games is the problem. Might be more the $3.6 - 4.0 million dollars we generate in Pokies profit might be the sticking point. Pokies and Hospitality Profit Melbourne – $3,620,569 If we cant find an alternative revenue stream things start to get very interesting.
  6. Bargain with pay per view to have the teams reap a percentage of profit (probably already does this, maybe through the AFL who pay clubs). Supply high quality leather jackets with a subtle demon logo on it (starting at $1000). Observe and model funding arrangements like in the US college teams. Partner with more service providers to pay a premium to your fav team. Perform better (increase your membership base). Make demonland a purchasable app and send the proceeds to the dees. Seek more generous sponsors... there's heaps to do. Or just ring Gutnik again.. But the last thing I would do is try to squeeze more out of players...
  7. You want to bet on that? Not sure the new chairman of the AFL commission is that much in favour of the pokies money. Plus there is quite a few clubs that dont get a $ from them. Very interesting times ahead.
  8. Wattsy's 150k is the antithesis of stabilisation I would have thought. What's that. 300-400 memberships?
  9. Haha brilliant. RIP Richard Kiel.
  10. WHY would you pay more money after round 23 ?
  11. Decent sports science program, resources and staff would be nice
  12. Rd 1 Team with Lever

    I am not convinced that he will be there. There are a lot of players that will be gunning for his spot in the team and I don't think any player can take his inclusion as a given.
  13. Where are these figures coming from? From what I know from inside the Club this couldn’t be any more wrong. Club only writes a cheque when we play as the home club at Etihad, never at the MCG, even when drawing 15000 in the dark days against Freo.
  14. Oh no, absolutely not. I've given 25 consecutive years of my life to this football club, of which only 7 have seen them make finals (28%). There is no mystery as to what came first, my support or MFC success. Dare i say it must be the case for 95%+ of our members. It's about time this football club finally started vindicating our ongoing support. Until such time, i see no reason to give more than what i currently do.
  15. NFL

    The Falcons might have just kick-started their season after today's win. You'll know your schedule for the rest of the season JV but for the benefit of others, here are Atlanta's games from here on in ... vs Tampa, vs Vikes, vs Saints, @ Tampa, @ Saints, vs Carolina. Atlanta's destiny is in their own hands in terms of gaining a wild-card but they'd need to win at least 4 or 5 of those 6 games. Win-out and the Falcons definitely win the division (they'd end up with a 12 & 4 record with a better head-to-head record against the Saints and a better divisional record than the Panthers would have) I reckon you can get to 10 wins and that should be enough for a wild-card. It's do-able but Atlanta will have to recapture last year's form and have a fair bit of luck on their side as well. Every game is like a final from here on in. But right now, the Falcons are the 6th seed in the NFC. I'm forever surprised how just one win can change the fortunes of a team in this league. A week is a long time in the NFL!

  20. I believe that belongs to Mr Gilmore

    Demonland readers = very much a specific demographic.

    Troll gonna troll.
  22. I would contribute to a plan to make the MCG roof into one big self sufficient solar panel roof and reap the ample rewards in return.
  23. Will Jack Watts make us pay thread?

    Surely this thread is a wind up? There's more chance pick 31 will do more damage in year 1 than Watts doing much more than 12 possessions and a goal a game.
  24. No! I want to see some value from the money I've already contributed.
  25. Will Jack Watts make us pay thread?

    We are. A small part of his salary. anything else, I don’t give a stuff about. He is no longer a Melbourne player, he is a past player.
  26. Will Jack Watts make us pay thread?

    He's already making us pay. Am I wrong, or are we not contributing a portion of his salary?
