You’d be lucky to find them on here as they generally only attend the big matches (as depicted above) and wouldn’t visit Demonland where most of us are passionate enough to be members. Many are very wealthy (but mean) and often bowl up and congratulate you on a great win (as though they contributed in some way)! They squirm when you regularly ask them ‘have they joined the MFC yet’ responding with: ‘why as I am a MCC member and don’t need to?’ We don’t respect them!

Cool story bro. If you know us MCC members so well, riddle me this - why aren’t I rich and why am I a member of the MFC?

My initial anger at your ILL INFORMED comments has subsided and realize that your comments are just plain stupid. One only has to see the scarf's in the reserve with both MCC/MFC  signs. This season coming up I shall be 60 years a member of the MFC.  I'm still shaking my head at your comments and if you read many comments on DL you would realize many are MCC members.

Precisely the same for me and my dees loving family. We are all MFC/MCC members and love to be that category to boost numbers.

We cheer just as loud, are just as proud and go to as many games as we can (when we're not on hols in Port Douglas or Fiji that is )

Don't tar us with that brush CB

Hasty illfounded generalization. Can you provide any figures to suggest that the patterns of attendance at MFC games by MCC members differs from other supporters. I have been a member of the MFC for over forty years and a member of the cricket club. From my observations from both in the members and the outer, in  dark times supporters are just as scarce in both areas. In fact, possibly because, in the old days, you could seek sanctuary in a good bar as Melbourne were being thrashed yet again, the members that did attend outlasted those in the outer.

There are any number of Demonland contributers and readers who are MCC members, however these sort of illconsidered comments only serve to alienate the people who the club are trying to reach out to.

If this is the standard of your contribution I neither want nor seek your respect.

Actually you do have a point (if IMHO badly expressed). I know MCC members who claim to support the Football Club yet don’t know much about the team and never go to matches. How wealthy they are,, I’m not sure😳. It’s an interesting fact about MCC members, as many as 40% never go to events and of the remaining 60%, maybe 30% go to a match (cricket or football) once or twice a year.

So, you pay $15.00 a year membership, lucky bu#*er! There’s that story from a few years ago concerning the man who travelled from England to attend the 50 year lunch. It was his first visit to the MCG!

No not that long with the MCC. It's with the MFC (footy club) 60 years. In our group we  have a few 50 year + MCC members and yes they only pay $15.00. Importantly ALL of my group are also footy club members.

encouraging mcc members to become mfc members (if they haven't already) by shaming or demeaning them seems pretty counteractive to me

(i'm not a mcc member)

Ha! At first glance the interests that you list in your profile along with where you live all look like top end of town pursuits to me: 

"Inner Melbourne

Interests:diving with big sharks, racing windsurfers, contemporary art, consuming fine wines & watching the Dees"

I am sure that you would argue otherwise and I am certainly not going to fall into the trap of applying stereotypes to you either.

I can confirm that I only share one of those pursuits and that is following the Dees.  I am a 40 year member of the MCC and also an MFC member since I have been back in Australia (20Years). I have some coin for which I have worked unashamedly hard for.

Why would you set out to exclude such a major part of the fan base when together it makes us one of the powerhouses of the league.

Seriously!

I'm an MCC member and have missed 2 games since 2006. So i take offence to the 'only attend big matches'. I am of the opinion that the MCC members is always busy during Melbourne games and always looks more full than the members section of the Southern Stand. I note that the red seat members seem to be in attendance in bigger numbers than the Southern Stand. 

 

Oh and I am an 8 year consecutive member of the MFC and buy a full membership, not the associate one. i had always been a member of both MFC/MCC. I used to be a Redlegs member but no longer commit to such a high package,

Exactly.

We've been the butt of jokes for many years, let's not turn on each-other.

I love my MCC membership but recognise that the reason I go to the G is to watch the Dee's so I buy the MCC/MFC membership so the club gets money from the pleasure they provide me (well,the pleasure they sometimes provide me).
