We are getting a bit maudlin aren't we guys?

Alright to get back on track, how about the following. With the Dees 3-0 for the first time in yonks, if the Dees knock off Geelong to make it 4-0, we have a competition on this thread to find the best image with 4 bananas in it. If the unthinkable happens and the Dees lose, we have a competition on this thread to find the best image on the theme of "Hells Bells". If it is a draw, Redleg gets to make the call about what happens.

What say you all?

We will be lucky to be vaccinated by finals time.

We are always careful to sanitise and social distance. Masks when too close to unfamiliar people.

its all a debacle, just as likely to get hit by a bus as die from Covid.

i want front line workers and incoming tourists etc from overseas to be inoculated, tested and quarantined if required.

Me too but I reckon you will get the vaccine by June. I am hanging loose till then. I just stay away from crowds. Have no confidence on the Vic government controlling things when Aussies start returning from OS.

Its the most remarkable thing that Vic community has been so compliant with instructions, and on my trip to the footy round  one everyone was cautious. Still not really congested . Stay away from public transport and sit near friends you know are symptom free.

i think the vaccine doesn't stop the spread just limits the damage.

keep fit and be less vulnerable. I fear what might happen when winter hits an people are more vulnerable to cold and flue.

Getting my normal flu injection next week. Re  covid injections our clinic told us last week they have no idea when they will receive the vaccine or how much. A bloody shambles! Re the first game at 50% capacity and only 23k there you can spread out,  at 75+ that will be a lot harder. Good luck l will look for you in the crowd!!!!!!

James Jordon (JJ), don’t remember him, did ever play a game?

I see we have a New President!

But it should have been Uncle Bitters in the President role as his diplomacy skills would have us at number one AFL club in no time.

Thanks for the positive post re Round1 DPositive and the Covid plan response from the Melbourne crowd. 
 

However as I Have pointed out the likelihood of flu catchment is much much less due to the general population adhering to the Covid safe practices. Try just had been proved by the stats from 2020.

As usual OD your comments re Covid Vaccine and the crowds at the footy Are  at  best Flippant and worst inaccurate and misleading.

1. The total  numbers in the crowd Or the % of Crowd allowed  in the ground are totally irrelevant to the ability of Each person to move about freely.

Your ticket  has your seat no. and you are in a Zone and restricted to that area to purchase food and/ or go to the bathroom.

You cannot waltz freely  into another Zone to speak to an Old crony Or even your Mother in Law!

2. Covid Vaccine 

The provision of Venues for Vaccine In Australia is a Specialised operation with mist GO's not able to handle the rollout in these initial stages.

You asking your GP When you can have the vaccine is basically irrelevant if he is not one of the designated venues for receiving  the jab. 
It is not a shambles that you can't have it at your local GP clinic if they are unable to or are not a Clinic  dispensing the vaccine.

The procedure is to go to the Aust Govt Health website and do the CHECKER test to ascertain what priority you are. Ie 1a, 1b or 2a etc.

Once you get this answer then you can put your postcode in The box and about 5/6 choices Of locations nearby will be on the screen where you may Book for the vaccine once that Category has commenced.

( 1 a and 1 b are priority so far but 2a is getting nearer ).
 

In the future the Covid Vaccine procedure May become like the flu vaccine but we don't know really at this stage.
 

So waiting forvthe vaccine rollout fir your clinic is probably in vain and frankly if you are in either 1a or 1 b category you should be considering getting the jab ASAP for your own safety and your families as well. There is also a second booster to get within 2/3 weeKs or  12 weeks Depending upon which Vaccine either Sfizer or Astra Veneca you received.

It is not the GP's  real role in this procedure to notify all their patients that the vaccine is available unless they belong to a Clinic  that is approved for dispensing the rollout.
 

Hopefully that updates  generally your knowledge on both Covid plans and vaccine availability.

    CANCEL CULTURE by Whispering Jack

    I’m not one who likes mixing politics with sport but it should be noted there have been some unusual trends in the world of sport lately. In the US, Major League Baseball announced that it’s moving the 2021 All-Star Game and the 2021 MLB Draft out of Georgia, in response to the state’s new voting law. Over here, there’s a move to force Carlton to change its club song because the original song on which it was based (written in the late 1800s) has “racist connotations”. The Blues maintain the curr

    MOGGIES MASTERED by George on the Outer

    They say that herding cats is an impossible task but not for the Melbourne Demons who through relentless pressure, scored a commanding 25 point victory in Round 4 over Geelong at the MCG. The team that missed the AFL finals only once in the past dozen years were shown up by the new Demons of 2021 who have recorded their first 4-0 opening to the season in 21 years! Melbourne knew what was coming, and it was Geelong who were shown up for their inability to adapt to the 2021 style of foot

    UNDER MY SKIN by The Oracle

    The story goes that there’s a certain player from Geelong who has been seen in Moorabool Street crooning the old Sinatra classic, “I’ve got you under my skin.” His name is O’Connor and he’s been tasked to achieve one thing on Sunday by his coach, Chris Scott: to get under the skin of a Demon midfielder on Sunday and thereby tag him out of the big contest at the G. The idea behind the tactic is to not only blunt one of the team’s most destructive weapons but to distract them all from producing th

    MAX IN SPACE

    Demon skipper Max Gawn is one big unit at 208cm and lately he’s been standing even taller. We already know that he’s unstoppable in the air when going for a mark but with three consecutive victories to open the season, you might say that he has his head in the clouds.  And that is literally true thanks to a fan at Demonland.com who recently arranged for our big ruckman to go even further than the clouds but way beyond to the edge of space and into the stratosphere.

    CAPITAL PUNISHMENT by George on the Outer

    A 34-point win in the nation’s capital has seen the Demons kill the Giants hopes early in the 2021 season. It wasn’t only the scoreboard, but a succession of injuries to major players for GWS that has put paid to their aspirations. The winning result wasn’t just due to the opposition losing players, but also to the relentless pressure from this 2021 Melbourne side that put them in the winners circle. In past years, a 16 point deficit at the first change combined with a rampant Toby Greene w

    POWER AND THE PASSION by Whispering Jack

    The Demons ran out for their Qualifying Final match against the Fremantle Dockers at Casey Fields as the sounds of Midnight Oils’ “Power and the Passion cascaded over the mainly friendly pro-Melbourne crowd. It was a far cry from the season opener at Carrara in late January where few of their fans were in attendance in high 20’s heat and humidity and silence greeted every score from the slow-starting Demons. They ran away from the lowly Suns, won comfortably in the end and followed that with ano

    BREAK OUT by Whispering Jack

    Despite the chaotic events occurring in Canberra over the past few weeks, one thing is for certain. This weekend’s game at Manuka Oval in the nation’s capital between the GWS Giants and Melbourne will decide which of Scott Morrison or Leon Cameron is the most under the pump at this point in time.  This time twelve months ago, the Giants were coming off a season in which they had played off in a grand final. They opened up their 2020 campaign with a resounding 32-point victory in round 1 aga

    MARVELOUS PRESSURE by George on the Outer

    Is this a new form of Melbourne which has suddenly emerged in 2021?  In the past, whenever the pressure was applied, the team would falter early and as a consequence, it would more often than not, be forced to confront its own self-inflicted failure. But perhaps not so this year. The match at Marvel Stadium against the Saints provided an insight into how creating pressure, actually relieves it on the club, players and coach. Right from the start, Melbourne was there to make a stat

    STUCK IN THE MIDDLE by The Oracle

    Throughout the off season, St Kilda was touted as an improver and a possible challenger for a top four position mainly off the back of another good trade and draft period at the end of last year. Then in Round 1, the undermanned Saints made a shaky start and almost succumbed to the Giants but they managed to come home from a wet and woolly Sydney with the four points intact. For Round 2, they have a couple of handy players returning so they come into the the game at Marvel Stadium choc

    A SCRAPPY, SLOPPY SUCCESS by George on the Outer

    After what seemed like an eternity without Footy in Melbourne, the Demons and their fans produced a scrappy, sloppy yet successful return to the MCG. Yet is was against an interstate team from the furthest reaches of the country, but the 21K fans who made it through the gates, was way below expectations for numbers.  Sure it can’t have helped with all the difficulty that Ticketek imposed just to get a ticket, and since you just couldn’t walk up, perhaps the number wasn’t that surprising.

    UNFINISHED BUSINESS by Whispering Jack

    The Melbourne Football Club has unfinished business with Fremantle after that unexpected loss in their previous clash at Cazaly’s Stadium in Cairns cost it a place in last year’s finals campaign.   Back then, the tired Demons spluttered listlessly through the humid conditions in tropical far North Queensland playing in and losing two games in the space of four days and against two lowly clubs. The end result was much more than an embarrassment for the club given what was at stake at th

    PRACTICE PUMMELLING by George on the Outer

    Was this a practice for what lay ahead for the Demons in 2021 or was it an outcome to expect because it was used as a true practice game? Those of us on the outside will never know, but a 39 point loss to the Western Bulldogs was a pummelling in anyone’s language. We can draw some consolation from the players that Melbourne put on the field, with Toby Bedford, Jake Bowey, Kade Chandler, James Jordon and Tom Sparrow each getting a guernsey whereas they probably would not normally be in the f
