Membership 2012

Recommended Posts

Got the renewal letter for the direct credit card. Red and Blue Family 16 games. Not 17.

More money less games.

Fantastic.

Might wait for the draw to see what it looks like this year

God I can't wait til 2015(ish) and my Trident though...just can't afford it longterm.

I'm assuming we are playing GWS away as a replacement for one of this years away games at Etihad or the G. Therefore, less games in Melb.

This would mean the club already has some idea of the fixture and we have 6 interstate games. We don't get a Darwin game next season so we will have 11 home games in Melbourne, hopefully for the clubs sake we can play at least 6 home games against Victoria based clubs.

Hi Demonlanders. We just wanted to clarify the home and away membership for 2012.

Until the 2012 draw comes out, we are not aware and therefore cannot confirm how many games will be played in Melbourne.

Sixteen games in Melbourne is the standard for Victorian Clubs and membership prices reflect this. If we are scheduled to play more games in Melbourne when the draw comes out, the home and away memberships will reflect this. You may recall that initially for 2011, home and away memberships were 16 games and then changed to 17 games once the draw was released, at no extra cost.

As in previous years we will provide more details on the specifics of memberships once the draw is released by the AFL to the Clubs and the public at the end of October.

If you would like more information, please contact our Membership Department on (03)96431760.

These things are always a cost versus benefit.

I have bought memberships for years and not got full benefit.

But i can afford it and I am a nutter how cannot give up even after decades of failure.

Just remember it is only a game.

Pay what you can afford and no more.

What a ordinary way to look at things! It should not matter if Tom stays or goes &/or who is coaching us to whether you re-sign!!

IF your a supporter - you support the club and buy a membership. If you dont buy a membership - you are a barracker!!

We need as many people as possible to sign up for 2012 (after this crap year!), not jump off!! What a crock!

Support is very much a two way street. They also need to support us by making good decisions and building to a flag.

Not sure i agree with you.

I have bought a membership for the majority of the last 40 years.

However there are occasions when the only protest open to member is to withdraw their support.

I often think that MFC members are too accepting.

Following along no matter how the club performs is IMO one of the reasons we have been so long in the wilderness.

In the current envoirnment I find it responsible to see how the club shapes up before supporting it.

Show us the results and we will show you the money.

It is time for the club to show the members they know how to take the club forward.

The members have put their money up over the last three years.

EXACTLY. Was a member until '65 then had to stop because I was working every Saturday (the only day the game was played back then). Rejoined in '84 (still working Saturdays until 2.30) arriving at the ground at half time each week for 2 years. In '86 joined the "Demons Club" then later "Jim Stynes 205 Club" then Legends, Redlegs & lastly Tridents. Premium members for 25 years and only 2 grand finals in all that time.

We will continue to be premium members as long as we can afford it regardless of ladder position, "star signings" or "celebrity coach".

We love the the DEMONS and the MFC.

It is great to be so loyal but has it achieved the holy grail? No.

in fact you have suffered through some truely poor administrations.

Make your feeling known a bit more.

I could not have put it any better myself!

With so much of a burden on household bottom lines in this current financial climate, some things need to be reconsidered.

A club that keeps asking, asking and asking - whilst never producing anything on the field to justify the continual asking is in deep doggie do do.

I, for one, won't be renewing until the club has convinced me that the personnel within the football department are fit for purpose, and there are measures taken to toughen up our sad culture. Only then will I depart with my hard-earned.

I find it funny when you fill in the membership survey questions and they ask will you be more likely to buy a membership if we offer x or y. I will have a membership up until the day I draw my last breath. I am Melbourne!

Will you express your displeasure at the disaster that was the 2011 season on and off the field?

If so how?

If you meekly keep buying your membership and say / do nothing the administratuion will take your membership as a sign of agreement with the way they have handled things.

Look forward to your thoughts.

    OVERPOWERED by George on the Outer

    If there was ever a prime example of a team of players not ready for the new Football season it was Melbourne in the opening round of 2019.   Throughout the field there was just too much evidence of players who haven’t had sufficient pre-season or players who ordinarily wouldn’t have even graced the field at this early stage.  The Demons also got a lesson on selection with Port Adelaide showing that 2 ruckmen on the field is an essential for this season.  It was a lesson that should have be

    THE WELCOME GAME by Whispering Jack

    The Melbourne Football Club has moved forward in leaps and bounds since it last met Port Adelaide in a totally forgettable (for Demon fans) season opener on the MCG.  That game, played on Sunday, 31 March, 2013 before a crowd of 22,924, was supposed to be a close encounter between two of the competition’s lesser lights from the previous season when the Power had finished 14th and the Demons 16th (ahead only of AFL newbies Gold Coast and GWS). It turned into a slaughter with Port taking the

    THE WALKING WOUNDED by Paddy Gosch

    Forget the fact that Melbourne narrowly missed out on getting the four JLT points on offer for a second consecutive week and the blow to the ego of a supposed top four contender losing ... well almost at home ... to a team that has recently dwelt in the AFL cellar and won a mere five games in 2018. The things that emerged from the horror final JLT outing was that the Demons are a long way from being prepared to take on the rigours of a long tough season in which they have one of the hardest fixt

    PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons have named a star studded line up in it’s final practice match before the season proper. They take on the emerging Brisbane Lions out at Casey which is the second of three matches at the ground on Saturday. Many of the Dees best 22 have been recalled including Vice Captains Max Gawn and Neville Jetta whilst Captains Nathan Jones and Jack Viney will play restricted minutes in the VFL curtain raiser. Former Gold Coast co-captain Steven May will play his first official game for Melb

    HIT OUT by Paddy Gosch

    As far as preseason hit outs go, the Demons’ first JLT Community Series fixture against the Tigers in the blistering heat at Shepparton, was instructive of a number of things but not really conclusive as to how each team will fare in the regular season against the competition's big guns (which includes against each other). That’s the way these practice match hit outs go. Neither of the teams was at full strength, particularly Melbourne but if you were looking for the reason for the 12 point

    HOT OUT OF THE CITY by Paddy Gosch

    The Dees travel out of the city for game one of two JLT Community Series practice matches before the season proper. Our first match takes us to the floodplains of the Goldburn River in Northern Victoria to the city of Shepparton. We take on the Tigers for the first of at least 3 encounters with the 2017 Premiers this year. The game will be played in scorching temperatures so expect plenty of rotations, ice vests, fans running overtime and extra water carriers. The Demons are coming off a wi

    GAME, SET & SCRATCH by Paddy Gosch

    I always believe in starting off any report by accentuating the positive and in that regard, as at the time of writing, the Demons have not reported any injuries so that’s my major positive from today’s practice game v the Magpies (albeit that we know the club is somewhat lax in reporting these things so my best wishes go out if any of today’s participants are in intensive care at the Alfred).  Another positive was that Razor Ray performed his umpiring duties admirably which is more than I

    SCRATCH by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons are set to take on the old enemy Collingwood in a good old fashioned Scratch Match on Friday Morning. It is unknown what form the match will take, how many quarters there will be, their length, the amount of rotations or even whether they'll keep score. One thing we do know for sure is that both coaching staffs will be keeping their cards close to their chests to ensure neither will glean too much from their competition. The Dees will likely be without some of their stars as Tom

    IMAGINE by Whispering Jack

    The Demons made their official return to the training track for 2019 on a sunny Saturday morning at Goschs Paddock with most of the interest initially centred on a small patch of ground in one of the pockets where the rehab group was going through the paces. Some good pieces of news on that score. The  rehab group is considerably smaller than it was prior to the Christmas break with Christian Petracca (knee), James Harmes (shoulder), Jayden Hunt (shoulder), Neville Jetta (shoulder), Oscar M
