    Most Heartwarming Win?

    I'd say beating the Eagles in round 22 2019 was as happy as I'd been as a Melbourne supporter in about 18 years.

    Egg, bacon and baked beans, pls.
  3. The orange needs to be more distinctive. IMO it looks closer to Essendon than Melbourne.

    New Major Sponsor - Jaguar CONFIRMED

    Do you mean Looney Tunes? I bet you call social media, "The Facebooks".

    New Major Sponsor - Jaguar CONFIRMED

    About time some prestige was added to the jumper. We are a sleeping giant, with a small (comparative to the big clubs) support base, albeit a base that has a high purchase intent and attendance rate. This makes us exclusive. And will no doubt help in appealing to inner-city Chinese students and expats.

    Opposition Watch: Rd 1 vs Port Adelaide

    Interestingly we lost round 1 for a decade then managed 3 years in a row winning round 1. It took one last bout of round 1 misery last year before we could break through and play finals.

    Afl.com’s best midfield

    It's going to be hilarious watching Collingwood's retirement home midfield get spanked this year.

    Tim Smith v Cam Pedersen

    I think it's important people remember back to Pederson's first season at Melbourne when he was seen as one of the worst recruits to the club in a long while. A lot can change in a preseason and speaking with certainty that Smith cant contribute is shockingly shortsighted.

    Origins/meanings of Display Names?

    I visited Prague for the first time in 2007, and noticed "Praha" brandished everywhere, which, obviously, is Czech for "Prague". I always thought it would be a cool name for the bar I was going to open before I turned 30. Anyway I never opened the bar so thought I'd change my username to this. Prior to that it was "Cudi_420" which was just a joke name (Kid Cudi, 420, blaze it... ya know?), and before that, calabreseboy, which was a username I used online, dating back to my teenage years when I was a fully sick wog boy.

    make no mistake me setup LG in Australia. They were a no name cheap brand and we helped get their name out there.

    Pert's Plan to Make the Dees an AFL Power

    Putting us with those three is just silly. We didn't make finals for a decade, fielded one of the worst teams of all time during a part of that period, and yet still managed more or thereabouts in terms of members than the Saints Bulldogs and North, all of whom had many years of success in that period, including one flag, Prelims and Grand Finals. Can you honestly see either of the Bulldogs or North ever pulling 90k for an Elim final, regardless of opponent? Maybe the Saints, but those teams have peaked and growth won't be anywhere near as sudden. We have, what, 20k identified Melbourne supporters in the MCC that aren't Melbourne members. That's 20k people with high purchase intent. What club can claim to that sort of engagement level and purchase intent with non-members? 50k should be 2019 target, with 55k-60k in 2020. It's completely reasonable given the space for growth.

    I love the MCG, but...

    I've been to LA like 10 times for work, to the same area to go to the Convention Centre. The street food around there was amazing. If you ever return, Tom's Urban just outside Staples also has good grub but it can get packed on game day.

    Pert's Plan to Make the Dees an AFL Power

    You need an element of differentiation, and melbourne is certainly different to any of the aforementioned. I think our attachment to the MCG and Yarra Park has an element of romanticism rarely seen in sports the world over. We need to embrace that more especially if we're going to attract a younger and newer audience. I'd not only be targeting kids, I'd be targeting Indian and Chinese students/expats that either see the MCG as a church (Indians with cricket and association with the MCG), or as a cultural landmark of the city (Chinese looking to make this their home, and finding ways to assimilate). A more obvious presence in the CBD should also be considered, to be considered as somewhat of a "gateway" to our home in the MCG.

    How Many Wins in 2019?

    It was the highest we had been that deep into the season since 1964. We back it up with a 12 goal loss to Port, and of course the infamous Elim Final loss against Essendon. In reality, 2004 probably should have been Daniher's last.

    How Many Wins in 2019?

    Anywhere between 13-20 for H&A.
