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

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.

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.

    PANTSED BY THE PIES by George on the Outer

    A 41 point loss to Collingwood, combined with yet another meagre output from the Melbourne forwards, saw the Demons pantsed by the Collingwood in the Queens Birthday match. For the nth week in a row, Melbourne failed to produce a score that would trouble most sides - it’s inaccuracy alone was again enough to seal the outcome. If that final score of 7.15 were 15.7, the game would have been very different. That sort of output was exactly a repeat of the previous week against Adelaide, when fo

    TURNAROUND by KC from Casey

    It is truly amazing what a difference eight days can make in the life and times of a football club. It was a little over a week ago that the Casey Demons side were literally crushed into submission by the Werribee Tigers at Avalon Airport Oval. The losing margin in that game was not huge but the way they struggled to produce and cohesion in their play was obvious for all to see.  On Sunday at Casey Fields as part of heritage week, the team wore the Springvale FC jumper and made its own turn

    TEN YEARS AFTER by Whispering Jack

    There are many who would argue that Melbourne’s current woes go back a full decade to their Queens Birthday engagement of 2009 when the Demons selected a young VCE student Jack Watts to make his debut on the MCG in front of what was expected to be the club’s biggest crowd for a game described as the club’s “grand final in June”. That was the way of the world for the Dean Bailey coached Demons. The critics were skeptical of Melbourne’s decision to put a wet behind the ears schoolboy (albeit

    TOP END HEADING SOUTH by George on the Outer

    The Demons headed north for their annual game in Darwin, but the disappointing outcome could only mean they are heading south with the all too familiar failings happening again. A Sam Weideman mark and kick for goal with only 30 seconds remaining in the match could have won it for the Demons, but the kick slid sideways and the team went down by two points.  Sam may have been devastated, but the fact that the team could only kick 1 goal 8 behinds in the final quarter lays the blame at the fe

    MAYDAY by KC from Casey

    There’s not very much that can be said of the lacklustre performance of the Casey Demons at Avalon Airfield Oval against the Werribee Tigers on Saturday other than that it was woeful. There were however, a few small rays of hope for Demon fans, the main one being the display of defender Steven May from injury and to a lesser extent, Kade Kolodjashnij’s return after two months recovering from the effects of concussion. May was in stellar form down back, taking intercept marks, disposing of t

    POINT OF NO RETURN by the Oracle

    Conventional wisdom says that a club reaches the point of no return in the AFL competition if it has won less than four matches at the mid point of the season.  What this means for Melbourne is that in order for it to remain in the race for a top-eight position, it must start winning games now. Moreover, It's not enough to win the next game but it must also start stringing wins together to make up for its deficit in both wins and percentage.  With so much at stake there will be no excu

    A REAL DOWNER by KC from Casey

    When Sam Weideman kicked his third goal at the midpoint of the second quarter of Casey’s game at Downer Oval , Point Gellibrand on Sunday, he put his team 26 points ahead of the goalless Seagulls. Buoyed by the return from injury of Weideman and a number of other AFL-listed Melbourne players including Jordan Lewis, Mitch Hannan, and Jay Kennedy Harris and an impressive start to Jake Lever’s second game on return from his ACL surgery, the Demons were seemingly on top of the world. Lewis and

    ANOTHER GIANT PROBLEM by George on the Outer

    On top of its injury problems Melbourne ran into an “in-form” GWS Giants at the MCG in a game which, apart from a final quarter junk-time spree served to highlight the club’s current problems. There’s a virtually non-existent forward line; a plethora of VFL standard players, who might be getting plenty of game experience but most will simply not be up to AFL standard; an inability to kick straight and an ability to waste simple opportunities so that they mustered up only one goal in the fir

    GIANT HEADACHE by The Oracle

    It seems so long ago that Melbourne took an unchanged line up into a game on the MCG against the Greater Western Sydney Giants and cleaned them up to the tune of 45 points.  In truth, the event occurred literally half a season ago in the final home and away round of the 2018 season and marked the Demons’ return to the finals with more triumphs to come in the weeks ahead. Of course, back then, it was the Giants who were wracked with injuries as they stumbled into the finals series facing the

    LANDSLIDE by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons enjoyed the better of their first half against Port Melbourne on Saturday but fell away badly after half time to lose by 43 points. The Borough enjoyed the early break with the game’s opening two goals but the Demons took control to go out to an 8 point lead at quarter time, an advantage that it held for most of the second term until a late goal to the visitors clawed the lead back to a point.  The Casey ruck of Braydon Preuss and Liam Wale-Buxton were on top for most

    SHOULD HAVE ... COULD HAVE by George on the Outer

    West Coast finally put the nail in the Demons 2019 season coffin with a 16 point win, but it was a game that Melbourne should have, could have, but didn’t win. Once again woeful, truly woeful work in the forward line, both kicking for goal and the lazy, cheap efforts of some let the side down. A solitary goal in the final quarter and only 9 goals from 24+ scoring opportunities was the costly difference in the game. The selectors, once again, made a critical error in not selecting

    SCREAM by Whispering Jack

    The Norwegian Expressionist artist Edvard Munch painted a number of versions of his famous work “Scream” and, every time my mind goes back to last year’s Preliminary Final at Optus Stadium between Melbourne and the West Coast Eagles, each and every one of them reverberates through my mind as if my head is being pummeled by a sledgehammer.  When I think of that half time scoreboard from that match showing West Coast at 10.9.69 to Melbourne 0.6.6, I feel like the man standing by the railing,
