DEBT DEMOLITION

DEBT DEMOLITION

GET ON!

Come on Demon fans. The site says on $11,276.00 collected to date. When you take into account the ten grand put in by the Richmond supporter, that's almost nothing from the true faithful!

As the man says -

GET ON!

ok...someone has to say it.. This is very one dimensional !! Many of us have come up with ideas that would not only facilitate greater donations..Arguablynot al lin a one hit block..but certainly able to do greater damage over a year. And be TAX DEDUCTABLE.

Those that want to say Im just be negative.. go for it..all line up over here >>>>>>>>>>>>

This is very gung ho and not too bright.

I will be giving in other areas.Surely we have greater acumen at the club to come up with better ways than this.

Sorry folks .very disaappointed if this is "The great plan !!"

Agree with you that if rattling tin cans is all there is to it then we're in trouble. However, I've had discussions with Jimmy and one other director and they assure me that the debt demolition plan is only the first phase or the first quarter. An outline of the plan has been placed on the club's website and further details will be made public in due course.

It's up to the club's members and supporters to support the board's efforts and to also keep the board on its toes if they're not doing their job.

I agree with what's been presented so far Bub, but i don't think it will be all that comes forward.

I think this comes first as part of the new attitude that the debt WILL be removed, not the board saying we HOPE the debt gets removed

It was $126,276 until McNamee was sacked!

The Club is thrilled to have the support of FOXTEL, which is generously matching the contributions of members and supporters - dollar for dollar - up to $100,000.

This is the part of that page that interested me.

Well, not really. That was his salary and we were going to have to pay it anyway.

Now, why he was on such an absurd amount of money is another matter

It's a fantastic idea and a good initiative by the club to setup a website to help donate.

Just get the feeling though Jimmy cant just rely on the members to get rid of our debt through donations. Something major needs to be done before we drop deeper and deeper into debt.

I've just made a $50 donation and it is fantastically simple.

I'll wait to see what other ideas the club comes up with but by the end of the month I plan to have put in at least $260 - to match the cost of our memberships (me and my two kids).

Come on Demonlanders - no negativity please - just generosity.

Got my donation ready and the website is a good idea, but I haven't received an email from the Club or seen it on the website so not sure how they are informing people it is there and that they are waiting for our donations, lucky you guys are on the ball!...

Just like we all want to hear we WILL win the Premiership by 2015, NOT we hope to win a Premiership by 2015.

That's silly.

We're going to have a CEO work for free for the next couple of months, so we won't be paying any more than what we'd done if we'd kept McNamee for the next couple of months and not had to pay him out.

Guest Demon85

Just a though (after i handed over my money) - Does anyone know if the debt demolition site is for real? The reason i ask is because i havent recieved any information from the club about the site. There isnt even a link off the MFC homepage.

It could all be well and good, they havent gotten around to it or they are waiting till after the dinner tomorrow night to advertise it but the thought crossed my mind that somebody could be out to make a buck. That said, it does look the business and the reciept is from the payment company MFC use from memory.

What i'm really looking for is some reassurance. I would hate the money i donated not to make it to the club.

Could not agree more.

I sincerly hope that there is alot more to it than just a donation site. If not, its fair to say that were stuffed.

Cant help but feel that all this will do is keep the interest at bay.

I just called the club and asked Demon85 - it is legit so you haven't just donated to some Nigerian scammer!

The site will be officially launched on Wednesday after the 150 heroes dinner, it will also be updated then so it hasn't taken into account the thousands of dollars pledged since our encouraging performance against the bummers on the w/e.

To all the knockers - the club is finally doing something and getting the word out so just give them a break and get behind the idea. We will see in the next 5 years if it is a complete waste of time and we can't stand on our own two feet.

I've just forwarded the link to everyone on my contact list... all work employee's... everyone...

Alot of people who aren't as passionate as us, although may still pledge $50, may not hear much about the site even after the launch, so spread the word people!

I just did a lookup on the site name and found the following from this search http://whois.domaintools.com/debtdemolition.com.au:

Edit: Just deleted the text I'd quoted from the web page as I saw it said "domaintools exclusive". You'll have to click on the link but to cut a long story short it looks ok

Good initative by the club but to give the site and users a bit more incentive to donate it would have been a nice feature if users were allowed to create there own profile page and have the $ they have donated accompany there profile i.e Ryan has donated $50 to save the MFC

This way all that have donated are on display and being recognised for their contribution in a more formal manner it would have also created a bit of competition with supporters claiming to be the most passionate by being on display as donating the most $, an honour roll of top contributors to the debt demolition.

Anyways just a thought. I have donated $20 which is all I can afford this week and hope to donate more over the month.

    SOCIAL DISTANCING by George on the Outer

    It was good to see the MFC players practicing the directives about social distancing at the game against West Coast.  Pity was that they continued to do so after the first bounce of the ball, as they allowed numerous WCE players run around un-hindered, with not a Melbourne player within 1.5 metres of them! They then found themselves looking at nearly a 5 goal deficit at the first break, which was to be essentially the final margin for the game. It is difficult to judge exactly what is going

    BEST IN SHOW by Whispering Jack

    I am writing this knowing that the AFL has deemed that the opening round of competition will proceed but fully believing that it should not.  The world is going through cataclysmic change as a result of the overwhelming spread of the Covid-19 virus and I agree that a distraction like sport would be good for the public. However, while the physical threat to the population is bad enough, there are other  issues to be addressed including the mental health of the community and the effects on th

    TASSIE DEVILS by Van Demon

    If you were looking for something new from the Demons that wasn’t there last year, you didn’t have to look further than the perfectly trimmed grass surface of UTAS Stadium last night as the team steamrolled the Hawks to record a comprehensive 32-point victory to complete their Marsh Community Series commitments for 2020. One new thing was the fact that for the second Marsh game in a row, the team finished full of running and they dominated the second half without the presence or the dominan

    SOUTH OF THE BORDER by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons will go into their final Marsh Series match with a strong lineup against the Hawks in Tasmania. Both Max Gawn and Steven May, who were recovering from injuries in first Marsh Series match, have both been named. It is unclear whether Max will be on restricted minutes and will likely get breaks in the ruck with Sam Weideman and rookie Luke Jackson getting their turns in the middle. Angus Brayshaw will be getting his first taste of competitive football despite playing in last week’s

    KANGAROO CAUGHT by Whispering Jack

    There was a fair amount of debate in our area as to whether the game warranted a full blown match report because it was felt that it was really an elevated version of a training session with match simulation but against a team in opposition colours. Although notionally the stronger side, North seemed to be using the occasion for the purpose of working on aspects of their game plan, one of the features of which seemed to be based on taking the longest possible route out of defence and good luck w

    JUST AN ABERRATION by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne unveiled its top recruits with new fitness boss Darren Burgess and mid-sized bull Christian Petracca sharing top billing in the team’s Marsh Community Series opener in front of 3,095 football starved fans at Casey Fields and thousands of others watching on screens of various shapes and sizes.  What they saw was a different Melbourne to the one that failed to run out its JLT Series games last year and then crashed in a heap early in the season proper with performances lacking the z

    CROWDOWN by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons open their 2020 season account with a "home" game against the Adelaide Crows at Casey Fields. It’s been more than 5 and half agonising months for the team and supporters who are eager to atone for the disappointing 2019 season which saw the Dees go from Preliminary Finalist to 2nd bottom on the ladder. The preseason campaign has been a hard slog with the addition of respected High Performance Manager Darren Burgess. We caught a glimpse of the gut busting sessions in the Melbourne

    THE YEAR THE SKY FELL by The Oracle

    After a number of years of linear movement up the ladder, the Melbourne Football Club unexpectedly went into serious decline in 2019, slumping from fourth to 17th in a season that coach Simon Goodwin described “a complete wipe-out”. Those around the club who tried to analyse the apocalyptic events that unfolded during the year were hard pressed to find a single reason for the debacle but the most plausible explanation was that the club’s troubles stemmed from a lack of fitness and injuries that

    BACK IN STYLE by Whispering Jack

    From the moment when the Elton John character in the movie “Rocketman” burst into its opening scene dressed as a flamboyant demon on his way to an addiction rehabilitation session, the game was on. Here was yet another film about a person gifted with a meteoric rise to stardom finding coke, booze and a hedonistic lifestyle that led directly to a destructive crash into the abyss. Ultimately, these stories end in total disaster (“A Star is Born”, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Judy”) but this one resulted

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2019

    PART ONE - OVERTURE  I have a disclaimer at the outset. I’m not a fan of the races - be they horses or motors of any kind. Once the final siren sounds on the football season, I find the month or so that follows and corresponds roughly with the Spring Racing Carnival to be the most boring time of the year for sports fans. You turn on the radio and you’re confronted by the monotonous drone of a self-proclaimed racing expert or by the nasally twang of an ex-jockey banging on about the equine p

    CHANGES 2019 by The Oracle

    PART 1 - IT’S A LITTLE MORE COMPLICATED THIS TIME This year’s free agency, trade and draft period will see the usual drama and upheaval as the AFL’s 18 clubs seek to better their lists in order to challenge for finals and possibly premiership honours. Long before the final siren sounded on the season just over a week ago, the maneuvering was under way with player agents and clubs discussing possible player movements and in some cases, deals had already been done.  Yesterday, the r

    HOW FAR SOUTH? by George on the Outer

    It was appropriate that Melbourne was playing its last game of season 2019 in Hobart.  After all, how much further south could the team go? And much as it has done in many of the previous 22 games, the side managed to extract a loss from a winning position by simply giving the ball back to the opposition time and time again. In fact, they gave it back to the opposition to the tune of 53 points from turnovers while, by way of contrast North Melbourne contributed  only 17 points to their oppo
