    Fat Ed wants QB as a Collingwood home game.

    Getting rid of the “fixture” would crush the equalisation fund. Crush that and teams like St Kilda, Bulldogs, North and Melbourne are finished. That’s not a debate you are going to win, you don’t have the numbers. First, you need to build your crowds, memberships & net profits - all very trivial I understand. AFL assisted you in survival by selecting CEO, Board and facilitating key coaching appointments. But is over to you now - best of luck.

    Yeah well it’s over to you as a supporter group. A/ to get your club to adopt those requests B/ double your memberships C/ get off AFL life support and function like a successful business

    Ironic we are having this discussion a week before the QB game. However, every year AFL accepts requests from ALL clubs for their preferences mfc request 1/ 2 home games in NT against interstate teams financial reason 2/ Anzac Eve 3/ QB home game at MCG The AFL does the best it can with ALL 18 clubs requests - will it please all supporters of all 18 teams - No Dont forget MFC current administration also supports the AFL rights to maximise revenue from its fixture arrangements.

    Nope - you earn the fixture over many years not 6 games of fantastic onfield results. Think the AFL prefers to have a proven history - think first game of the season every year.

    How Good is Goodwin?

    While he is winning he will be fine, but as a community you are too thin skinned too fragile. When Jackson goes a new CEO will have his hands full. I have seen no evidence you have the support structures in place to run the course. Actually, much of the written evidence in this place & places like Facebook ( assuming you believe it ) suggests your supporter base has a long, long way to go. AFL has some very interesting choices ahead.

    As I said at time of release of this years fixture, very important long-term for AFL to make Carlton finically stable on now two key strategic fronts.

    How Good is Goodwin?

    How Good is Goodwin? Solid, young AFL coach with much still to learn, has done very little wrong in his playing career, assistant coaching roles and the start to his senior career. Calm, collective and thoughtful with a solid consistent message infront of the media. Developing nicely and has the potential to be a superstar if given time to develop into the role. However, started at the wrong club for a first time coach - many MFC supporters are impatient and doubt he gets the time to develop compared to him joining a bigger club. Immediate results will make or break him once Jackson leaves.

    The AFL in a 18 team national competition with only 1 premiership will never please all of the clubs supporters all of the time. You earn your fixture, your supporters earn respect from the AFL by actions not words.

    Post Match Discussion - Round 11

    Another fantastic win - was really proud of the boys how they overcome the early setbacks and just powered away to win comfortably. Hopefully, just another game to add to the bielf - that success is a combination of hard work and a positive mind set. Go Dees

    Brendan McCartney - Moved to the bench

    Yeah I don’t see it that way - I think all he ever does is try and share his love for the club. Now, Saty and his partner have not always seen eye to eye with me either - but I think I was more at fault there. I’ve learnt more from meeting him than he knows. But each to their own

    Brendan McCartney - Moved to the bench

    Ok fair enough well said, but I’m not walking away from saying Saty is one of the most loyal, passionate Demons supporters you will ever meet. He and his lovely partner go to nearly ever game for as long as I can remember- he bleeds red & blue. So he is 10 x a better supporter than I will ever be.

    Brendan McCartney - Moved to the bench

    Yeah but some people have been saying that for the last 4 years - it’s the same small group in nearly every thread - same tactics - just they attack another poster. I don’t think they will ever learn. Saty, is one of the most loyal passionate MFC supporters you would ever meet - he is 10 times a better supporter than me and may I add the “trolls” attacking him.

    Yeah interesting reply - thanks for taking the time.

    2018 Membership Thread

    Thats the glaring problem when you just focus on pure numbers. The only meaningful number from memberships should be - Net Profit. What I've always wondered is ... How profitable are Armchair Memberships, 3 game MFC members and MCC Demons allocated members.

    Islam in the West

    99% of the reason another MFC forum was closed down was due to threads like these. I'm not religious so they don't offend me. But I cant see the need for them on an AFL site.
