You're welcome to express a view. I'm not sure why people would have a problem with what you've said.

I really like it. And I did the moment I saw it. When one starts analysing all that's in it I can understand some thinking that it's a bit busy. But I can only go off my initial reaction.

As another poster pointed out, an emblem is different to a logo. This emblem wraps up 150 years of history in a stylish and vibrant manner.

I wouldn't change a thing. B)

Concur entirely with Hannabal. Excellent representation of what the club stands for.

Amen H, well said....

It is a beautiful, all encompassing (150+ years) design that does what it set out to do.

Congratulations to those that designed it, job well done!!!

The emblem itself for me has way too much going on and for mine really says we couldn't quite decide what we are so we have included everything.

For me this emblem is more enduring than anything we have had before and rightfully emphasises our position in the history of the game.

I've heard a lot of people say that it's "too busy" but nobody has articultaed why this is a bad thing or why having a our emlblem telling a story about our football club is a bad thing.

If we are totally honest as outsiders looking at our current emblem it may as well belong to a bank?

Very big fan. Only a few teams have proper 'emblems' and this one is the best by some margin.

The last three years are truly amazing! And I think the Emblem and the presentation on the Web is the best effort I have seen in my 55 years of being a supporter and Member of the MFC.

I am not the youngest member by a long shot and my financial contribution to the “debt reduction” has been modest however I contribute where possible to a lifelong love affair.

Three years ago I thought we were headed to Sydney to become the “West Sydney Demons”

However they have turned the club around from $5 million in debt to no debt and what looks like a healthy profit this year.

The side has gone from Hopeless to being able to compete with any side in the competition.

Who knows were from here but I have the feeling it is up not down.

Congratulations to everyone at the MFC for their hard work over the last three years.

Would this have happened without one J Stynes?

I seriously doubt it.

The saying goes ”The Good Die Young” well I have a feeling you are about to prove that saying wrong Jim.

More power to you and most of all good health.

Carn the DEESSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

Brillant!! and then video is one of the best pieces of marketing the club has ever done....its all clicking into place.

Can't wait to get my new gear next year with the emblem on it. And I think it should become part of the jumper so the players are constantly reminded of what they represent.

Wow.

What a great concept.

Its still so unbelievable to me the change and energy Jimmy stynes has brought back to ths club.

Everyone has backed his vision beautifully and thats why its all worked so well. Such a team effort.

So proud to be a dees supporter, as always.

For those who dont like it or think its too busy.. well, its a shame you've missed the point.

You want it to look good, of course, but the focus is on paying respect to our history, where we've come from and what we've done for the game.

..and theres a lot to cover.

I agree wholeheartedly - couldn't have said it better.

Great "emblem", not a "logo". People are entitled to disagree.

A lot people I have spoken with also think it's a tad busy.

I think it works and I like it a lot.

So happy with the club right now.

I hope they release this as a quality shield that you can buy from the Demonshop. I would love to have a proper shield (similar to say a family coat of arms) up on the wall. That emblem/logo/shield what ever you want to call it looks fantastic. I'm sure many Dees supporters would part with their hard earned for one of those.

That emblem is one of the Greats on this PLANET. Instills History, Passion Strength, Mateship, Australia, What we were, are and will be. Friendship Loyalty, Family-You name it, it's there. Wow i am proud i was born into a melbourne Family. We are the custodians of Australian Rules.

Well done to all involved. The Emblem must be a busy visual-we are the oldest sporting club on earth, so we have been through a lot, and it sure aint finished yet.

Video

Go Dees

If I wasn't a Demon supporter before seeing that video I'd change teams. Great stuff.

Edit - On SEN around 2pm they played a line or two of a poem about the club that was recited last night. Does anyone have the full transcript or a vid link to it?

Love it. As previously stated, clear & concise.

What a time to launch it too, having wiped off the debt. Timing is everything.

I assume we'll see something tonight on TFS.

Wow ! Today has been a rather good day in the history of this great club.

Is it wrong to be sitting here with tears welling whilst watching that?

As an earlier poster said an emblem is not necessarily a logo. It needs to have some depth to it, or it means nothing.

The emblem for Australia is quite complex and has a story,which I remember having to learn as a kid in the 50s - not sure if they teach that now?

The video sets the story in stone. It is a brilliant piece. Every piece of the "puzzle" is clearly explained.

Everyone now knows, what the symbols mean, in very clear terms.

It will be used as the club identifying symbol where appropriate.

Out of it, might come a simple version, which will be recognized as the (or,a) club logo.

In other cases, the Demon will likely fill the bill.

I am not sure if this will be on our RED & BLUE jumper?

But, it should be!

After so many years in the wilderness, I now feel I am a member of a club who is proud of its heritage, but more, knows where it's going !

Go Dees!!

    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

    COOKED by The Oracle

    I can vividly remember when the Demons ventured onto Blundstone Arena for the first time in early 2016 only to lose to the Kangaroos by 20.11.131 to 21.10.136.    Melbourne was then a team on the up and up: young, enthusiastic and bold. It gave up a huge quarter time deficit after kicking against a strong wind but made that up by half time and fell dramatically short after an exciting high scoring affair.  The team lost no fans that day - they were willing to take the game on and attac

    HELP by KC rom Casey

    The Casey Demons finished off their home and away season against Frankston at Skybus Stadium on Sunday with a narrow, unconvincing 6-point victory that left the door slightly open for a top eight berth when the VFL finals begin in a fortnight’s time. While sunny skies prevailed over Frankston in the morning, the skies became overcast by noon and heavy waves pounded the bay nearby as the rains came in to greet the players as the game started. And conditions stayed dark and dreary for the rem

    THANKS BUT NO THANKS by George on the Outer

    Thanks, but no thanks! In a round where the club was supposed to thank their fans for the support during the year, the Melbourne Football Club chose to do otherwise with a 53 point loss to a team that sat 15th on the ladder.  Don’t give us cheap jumpers that can’t be sold in the Demon shop.  Don’t give us vouchers to shop there, give us something on the field, which is why we come to the football in the first place. It was a disgraceful performance, which started with a disgracefu

    SLEEP OUT AT THE MCG by The Oracle

    Around about 12 months ago Melbourne and Sydney fought out an epic battle between two top eight teams fighting for the best possible ladder position in the lead up to the finals. The Swans triumphed by 9 points at the MCG after the Demons came back from five goals down at three quarter time. But for its poor kicking for goal, Melbourne might well have won the game and finished in the top four. Who knows what might then have happened for the club in September? As a consequence, the person re

    A LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE by KC from Casey

    Two clubs that have been hard hit by injury recently took part in a dour battle under dark clouds and, with intermittent showers falling, it wasn’t a pretty game at Victoria Park on Sunday. Despite all that, the Casey Demons added a little ray of sunshine to their day to get the job done over a "traditional" rival with a 15 point victory over Collingwood VFL that breathed life back into their season. There were a few highlights at the ground that in past days has seen many titanic batt

    THE RETRO ROUND by George on the Outer

    We have seen it all before… Yes, a wonderful idea to showcase what used to be in football.  Big crowds, umpires who knew how to apply the rules and not opinions, high marks, skilful players. But for the Melbourne supporters their retro is what it has been like for the past 10 years. Losing games, end on end, year after year.  Opportunities squandered in front of goal. VFL standard players running around at the MCG. Just more of the same, and the game against Collingwood was no ex

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    Thanks to Demonlanders for their input into this week’s preview. Ralphius Maximus is short and bittersweet: We'll crack in at the bounce to create a contest, win our share of the ball, butcher the forward movement and get scored on easily from the intercepts. Not that hard to predict. Big Demon says: Unfortunately Collingwood will win because they have a lot more to play for. We will be good in parts but really the season is well over so we will have to put up with those bell

    WHAT, NO BLOOD? by George on the Outer

    The feeling when turning up to the MCG on a Saturday night to play a top four side in Richmond, while the Melbourne sits cemented in close proximity to the bottom of the table is like attending the Colosseum in Ancient Roman times. The expectation is that a bloodbath is about to occur. There are 100,000 Richmond members and 50,000 Melbourne members, and despite the fact that it turned out to be a wet night after half-time, a crowd of only 37K bothered to turn up. That should never have happ

    A MAN’S ERRAND by KC from Casey

    A young and undermanned Casey Demons were sent out on Saturday to the Swinburne Centre in the shadows of the MCG on a man’s errand against a very experienced Richmond VFL combination which is the clear ladder leader and fielded no less than 18 AFL listed players. It was expected to be a rout and the Tigers made easy work of it in the early stages when they held a 26 point lead by quarter time. To their credit however, the Demons weathered the storm and kept their opponents within the range

    THAT’S FOOTBALL by Whispering Jack

    As the season rolls on towards the finals and the football world witnesses the aftermath of the sacking of the league’s unsuccessful coaches, it’s almost  inevitable that the spotlight will turn firmly upon the complete and utter failure of season 2019 - the Melbourne Football Club.  For a team that finished in fourth place last year and was heavily touted as a premiership contender, the fall from grace has been dramatic. As things stand, the Demons look certain to finish 13 places down on

    THE MOMENT OF TRUTH IS COMING by KC from Casey

    At half time in Sunday’s game at Trevor Barker Beach Oval, things weren’t looking too flash for the flailing finals prospects of the Casey Demons. Key forward Sam Weideman had suffered a concussion in his first contest and, with a few exceptions, the team was playing like a rabble rather than a finals contender. The Demons were 23 points in arrears to the Zebras and their season was headed towards oblivion. It was the skipper Mitch White who spurred his team on by word and by deed - he fini
