He looks like he is about to be hit by a train, or Buffy is around the corner.

Nah.

That's one interpretation I guess...

Yes, it's an old design but I think he did well to incorporate it. I also think a version using the 90s demon (from your avatar) would be interesting to see. That was easily my choice of the modern logos.

Cartoon villain about to be hit by the hero's supercharge attack. Keep it simple man, we want kids drawing it on their notebooks.

Well, I guess that logo above would be great for marketing to the kids... stickers for schoolbooks, kids t-shirts, jumpers, beanies etc... but the new logo the club has come up with is ideal for general branding and marketing of the club.

(Retired) UFC fighter Forrest Griffin in town for UFC 193 is on the bandwagon.

Absolutely brilliant....I love it. I will be there tomorrow, hopefully Ronda is also donning an MFC t-shirt. Forrest is the second UFC fighter who has been photographed in MFC apparel, unfortunately the other was Tito :)

Goodness me it was a slap-together, wrong coloured nonsense of kit back then. I mean check out the shades of red between the Guernsey and polo.

Bloody pathetic in hindsight.

Can I please just point out that no matter the colours or logo, the cotton polo will never ever match the polyester jumper.

It is chemically impossible for a synthetic and a natural fabric, let alone when one is woven and one is knitted, to match 100% in colour. Even more so when one is yarn dyed and one is screen printed. Especially vivid colours like red.

Yes you can get it much better than in the above image, but it will never be exactly the same.

Fashion lesson over. Carry on.

At least I can now add chemistry to the list of potential root causes of MFC failure.

That photo is in some dire need of treatment by the Ministry of Truth. There is an unperson ruining it with his nonexistence.

Not to mention that stupid dinky little collar.

Those collars looked absolutely ridiculous. Add in the colour issues (as already mentioned), the terrible and awkwardly placed emblem (I know, I know, some of you liked it), and the ridiculous stars on the back and it really made for an awful guernsey.

It's quite impressive how badly we managed to stuff up a red V on a navy blue jumper.

This version is much better from someone at BigFooty.

It is better.

Demonland should run a competition about how long this version of the logo will last. How many have there been in the last decade?

It will stick around if we win.

Perception of everything at the club is seen within this lens.

Was just looking at the NAB challenge fixture on FB, scrolling down and there it was....our new logo is embarrassing. It hasn't grown on me and I won't be buying any merchandise with it on it. If it wasn't for the secret launch they could have consulted members/fans. I don't mind the lettering and I get the Melbourne branding but the the whole acorn thing doesn't work on any level.

Each to their own.

i think it looks amazing, especially when placed alongside other logos on the Facebook fixture.

Already bought several pieces of merchandise over Christmas.

Members were consulted in a extensive branding and logo survey I completed in 2014.

I suppose you'll never please everyone.

I do find it surprising that the oldest football club in the world decided not to put the year it was established on the logo. 

I know it's all about projecting forward but something so unique surely warrants inclusion. Maybe it can be subtly added in later.

Right next to the trident.

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition t

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s

    SKIN THE CATS by Whispering Jack

    The task ahead for the Demons as they wend their way down the Princes Freeway to Geelong on Saturday night will be to skin the Cats. For them to come away with the points from this game would mark an historic occasion for the club as it will finish on top of the ladder for the first time since its last premiership year, 1964. And it was in that year, that a trip to Corio Bay to meet the reigning premiers in Round 12, was one of the catalysts for Melbourne’s surge to the flag. It was a top o

    REACH FOR THE STARS by George on the Outer

    It was a game of great significance for the Melbourne Football Club. A win would see them keep top spot on the ladder with one round remaining. To achieve top place in the Round for Reach when we are all inspired to “Be Like Jim” and reach for the stars was a great way of honouring one of our heroes. All the better given that it was done by way of an emphatic 41 point win against Adelaide! It is worth remembering that, but for the umpiring mistake in the previous encounter with the Crows, t

    TICKETS PLEASE by The Oracle

    A lot of water has passed under Princes Bridge in the five years since Melbourne last met Adelaide on the MCG. The Crows were riding high at the time while the Demons were mid-table and scrambling for a win to stay in the race for the finals. The 30,000 fans who had tickets to the game were thoroughly entertained by a close, high scoring affair that ended in tears for fans of the home team. Not even an eight-goal second term could help them.   Times have changed.    In the fi

    ELECTRIFYING by George On The Outer

    What more can they throw at the Demons of 2021? Covid restrictions, hubs, aircraft circling between airports before landing for games and now a match stopped for 30 minutes to give a flagging opponent its second wind? To date, none of those distractions has swayed the team from their winning objectives. The game against West Coast in Perth can be marked on their report card as another positive outcome after yet another test. There was much at stake for both sides.  Melbourne had t

    LONG AGO AND FAR AWAY by Whispering Jack

    When the combatants that are due to face off on Monday night at Optus Stadium last met, it was 11 days after the World Health Organization had declared the Covid19 outbreak a global pandemic. In Australia, the first cases had just come to light, including visiting US actors Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson, the toilet paper panic was in full flight and the world was starting to reel in anticipation of impending disaster. Half an hour before this last game of the opening round was due to comme
