    Calling All MCC Members

    Like many others I'm an MCC/MFC member. The MFC component is of course a donation. Although I do like the exclusive MCC/MFC scarf! (lol) I wouldn't even consider not renewing my MFC membership. You're either a supporter or you're not**. A mate of mine is the greatest tightarse in Melbourne. He's my age (nearly 60) and has been a Carlton "supporter" all his life. He has never been a Carlton FC member. He is VERY well off. (Worth maybe $5 million). Disgraceful ... I repeatedly tell him that. He would have seen his side win at least 6 or 7 premierships in that time. He says he already gets into the MCG on his MCC membership. Talk about miss the point!!! **Having said that, I do acknowledge that some people are not in a financial position to pay for such memberships. And of course they cannot be expected to do so.

    AFLW: Rd 2 vs Collingwood

    I live a stone's throw from Victoria Park. Sadly I had another commitment that afternoon. Would love to have seen the Dees beat the filth.

    Round 1 team 2019

    Wow, there are some pretty good sides there.
  5. He reminds me of Hawkins (Geelong) although not as big (obviously) at this stage. He's more mobile though. Very high hopes. From all accounts a fine young man. (Gee, I sound like a codger... I guess there's a good reason for that!!!)

    Tom Mitchell out for the season

    Sorry for Mitchell. Hate Hawthorn. Hate Kennett. I was also present at 1987 Preliminary Final and 1988 GF. (Had we won 1987 Prelim, we would have been thumped the following week.) I also hate the filth, but that may not be relevant to this thread.

    I support City, only because I hate Muscat. https://www.theage.com.au/sport/soccer/muscats-606-000-tackle-20040225-gdxdkp.html I hated them more when Berisha was playing for them.

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    Caine: Master, if I shall love others, how can I be sure that they in return will love me in return? Master Po: Do you seek love or barter? Caine: But, if I love others and they do not love me, I shall feel great pain. Master Po: That is what you risk, Grasshopper: great pain, or great joy. Perhaps of only marginal relevance to this thread?

    Troy Broadbridge ... 26 December, 2004

    Agree with previous posters. He played a blinder in his last match - a final v Essendon. I was also at the Troy Broadbridge match the next year. Yes, it was very emotional. Clearly a top bloke ... and would have gone on to be a top player. RIP.

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    The previous comments about the FD being 'happy' to let Hogan go are correct. Yes, inside information from top level at the Club.

    IG Partnership Continues

    I recently opened an online trading account with them. Mainly because of their association with MFC.

    Meet Steven May

    It would be OK if the word 'not' was also in there ...

    Tim Smith v Cam Pedersen

    Pedo was, and presumably is still, a top bloke. But his AFL days had come to an end. He will always be held in the highest regard by everyone associated with MFC.

  17. This song was written by Bruce Woodley. He's a Demons supporter. I see him in the members sometimes, now in his mid 70s. Nice bloke.

    MFC Mens Home Guernsey Clearance $36 @ NB

    Can you buy the caps at their stores? $10 is a good price, but postage of $10 kinda defeats the purpose.

    Perhaps it's not totally on point, but does anyone else think that Benny from Abba looks like a giant rat?

    Sounds like one of Baldrick's cunning plans. Won't happen.

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    My ex wife was as cheerful as Jesse. I suspect I'll miss them about the same.
