Ticking up nicely.

Re the New Balance 70% offer. Does anyone know if that's available to MFC/MCC Premium members?

I would assume so but worth checking - I got an email the other day with the voucher code so you would assume this would go to all members.

Only 2611 to go to break the 40k barrier which would be a massive achievement for the club. If it starts getting close I'll have to seriously consider buying another membership to help nudge it along.

Actually, I might have to get into my uncles ear, hes been a member forever but let it lapse this year as he no longer lives in Melbourne. He came to the game on Sunday though as was impressed with how we were playing.

It is.  I've bought mine already, awaiting delivery.

presumably those eligible got the email from the club with the personal discount code

however if mfc/mcc members didn't get the email i think they should. no skin off nb's nose i'd think, given the margins on athletic shoes, plus i don't think they'd like to risk offending a section of supporters

i'd give the club a ring if you didn't get email. offer finishes in about 2 weeks

Fun stat.

If 61% of the 4,289 Demonland members bought some form of MFC membership pkge, 40,000 would be ticked off.

Yes...it's lunch period.

Yeah, I meant from today. No doubt many are already signed on.

Thanks for your help guys.

Called the club and they were very helpful and prompt with their assistance.

New pair of winter sneakers on their way.

We have a pet rabbit. Easily scared...runs away very fast. Female, so it would be too cruel to rename her Cale.

Should get my cat one too. She often watches a few games of footy each weekend, partial to the Dees, of course. How much are they?

The pleasing thing is we have won back a lot of lost supporters from the Neeld years.  And, found some newbies!

37,528 is about 630 in a week.  Great result.  At that rate we can get there by end of May.  QB weekend at the latest.

I think we have this:cool:

Only if we keep winning.

I said after the Essendon loss that it meant whatever faint chance we had of reaching 40,000 was lost. A loss tomorrow will surely be the final nail in the coffin for the 40,000 target this year.

But wouldn't it be terrific if in Roos' final year, we... made the finals; hit 40,000 members; had one or two players (I'm looking at you Viney and Gawn) go close in the Brownlow; and Petracca or Oliver won the Rising Star. What a platform it would be for Goody in 2017!

Agree that we need to keep winning. Leading up to the QB game we play:  StK. GC. WB. BL. PA. Hawks. Pies. I think we should win at least 4 or 5 of those and give the others a run for their money like we did Nth.  So unless the wheels totally fall off we will get to 40,000

The bride just signed up 10 minutes ago - having witnessed the wins against the Filth and the Timid Tigers, she reckons that the Dees are finally worth not only watching but actually supporting - ( only taken 32 years........)

I hope pet memberships don't count in the tally.

Personally, I don't think that 3 game memberships should count either.

Like most of us, the 40k target took a kick in the guts today.

    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

    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
