I'd prefer Alfred Hitchcock dc! Do you remember that old show ( Alfred Hitchcock theatre?) when the great man walked into the  drawn profile?

I wish the club would issue a deerstalker.

Imagine the potential advertising on the flaps.

 Why don't they bring back the red and blue striped version of the Australian baggy green cricket cap that was around in the 80's?

or maybe that's where it should stay...

And please IT if you do win one - and I hope you do- please, please wear it the right way round (you know, with the peak facing the front)!

Ha, I'm getting too old to wear it back to front.

I go to most Swans games and seeing a sea of red and white caps is fantastic. You don't see that with scarves. Come on PJ make an executive decision.

Swans members get a new cap with their pack each year?

Got an email from the Club today that if you renew today you could be one of ten to get an MFC cap. 

So I've renewed. Thought I should put it up here in case anyone else wants to go for a cap as well.

Personally I'd prefer a cap to a scarf. I have masses of them. I have raised this with the Club for years but they won't change. I don't know why they don't change it up a bit every few years. The Swans do caps instead of scarves. 

You can opt for a demo shop voucher rather than a scarf on your renewal letter

Yep.

That's impressive!

I see we slug our members a minimum of $40 (discount excluded) for the basic cap and up $60 for a new era!! Scarves won't bring that sought of revenue and unfortunately I think that is the strategy.

Caps are a much much better alternative as you can wear them at anytime whereas a scarf, particularly here in Perth, there might be two occasions in the whole year.

Worth pursuing I think.

How much is the voucher for?  From memory it's about $15 which doesn't do much for you as the caps are around $25 -30. I live in Sydney so from memory it doesn't even cover postage. Not really an option unless I go to Melbourne and have to take up time going to the Demon shop. 

Would be a lot easier for them to just mix it up every few years. Ive got shelves of bloody scarves.

I'm in Sydney so have the same issue. I'm sure a mass purchase of caps probably wouldn't be that much more expensive than scarves. Members caps are $30 on the website and the only pure wool scarves I could find are $65. So I'm assuming the synthetic ones we get are probably about the same as a cap. 

I raised this with the Club a few years ago and they said the feedback was Members preferred scarves. I find that hard to believe.

Don't like the scarf idea at all.  How many scarves can you have/need.  Turn up to the footy with 2014 on your scarf and people think you are either a cheapskate, didn't renew your membership or you're not a true supporter.  The only scarf idea I liked was Hawthorn putting years of membership on their scarves.  I like the idea of 50 being on mine.

But really, scarves have been done to death at the MFC and to me it's just lazy marketing.  Anything but a scarf please.

There in lies the reason to me. In Sydney the weather is warmer, as it is in Perth so you don't have to wear scarves. In Melbourne the scarf is part of the institution that is the AFL, mainly due to the fact it is cold and you wear them for much of the season. 

I do understand your point with the hats, but I don't wear hats unless it is very cold and then it is a beenie. I would much prefer the scarf, the best thing they could do is mix up the design from year to year a bit more.

I have started Airbnb (100 metres from the "G")! I give all my overseas guests a Melbourne scarf. They love it (and it cleans out the drawers)!

I'm not. I will still always enjoy my beloved Cats. But after watching many Dee's games, and the majority of Casey games this year, I know a lot more about this club and its players than I do of Geelong.
Oh and when your best mate and brother gets drafted to them, it's hard not to change your allegiance ^_^

IWS we have covered this before, they keep asking the supporters, and those that bother to answer in surveys say scarf, a lot of the femaie support don't want a cap either, they don't wear them.

Here is an interesting exercise for you, stand outside of a membership tent before one of the first home games and watch the reaction if they have underestimated the demand for supporters picking up their scarf

    GALLANT by KC from Casey

    The world “gallant” is not one that is readily acceptable to losing teams in our game of football so when it was used in the context of the Casey Demons’ loss to Sandringham in yesterday’s match at Casey Fields, it left a bitter taste in the mouth.  The Demons went into the game against the St Kilda affiliated Zebras with the advantage of playing on their home turf (not that this has been a major asset in 2024) and with very little else going in their favour. The Saints have close to a full

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w
