Our home games

Recommended Posts

After being in Perth yesterday and feeling and hearing those rabid animals. I feel we need to do more at our home games. We need to turn the mcg into a frickin fortress and make it uncomfortable for away teams!

The answer is winning

Pure and Simple.

Hopefully all the bandwagoners who jumped on & showed up for the 2 finals actually sign up as members & come to games next year. We clearly had more support at the first 2 finals, like to see these people show up from day 1 next year. Should get 50k members

Agree with all..

Would be great I’d we could create a better home ground atmosphere.

Tigers have drums playing when they enter the ground and the Hawks and others use the scoreboard to have a visual with sound when they goal!

Cant we do something unique but similar in 2019. Make the G at fortress that other sides fear when they meet the Demons !

Agree, we have heaps of supporters but they don't seem to want buy memberships?

If they showed up during the home and away season we could make the G our fortress.

Each to their own, but I hate the cringe worthy artificial nonsense other teams use after goals. Much prefer to hear genuine crowd support then that rubbish.

I like Robbo,but at our home games he hosts stupid sprinting or spekky competitions, instead of revving up the Demon supporters.

I agree with previous posters who urge us to try to build up the “cauldron of hatred” that interstate clubs, Etihad clubs, and even MCG tenant clubs develop at their home ground.

Geelong have been perennial finalists, however mediocre their list, by having 8-10 games a year with enormous home ground advantage.

iSimilarly for SA, and WA clubs, with 11 games per year with that huge advantage.

And....We MUST stop selling home games!!

Onfield success will  draw more money from sponsors than the money gained from selling games to NT.

Lets have a few easy home games at the G against Bris ,GC. and  Freo, where they have to put up with a stadium with no one supporting them.

It would help to occasionally play WCE and Adelaide at home, too.

All that artificial crap, add the EssenDung air raid siren, is just further Americanisation of our game.

If you want that synthesised nonsense, go to the basketball.  Or 20/20 cricket, or the ridiculous preseason game with the sparklers and rectangular field (can’t even remember what it was called. - JLT or maybe IDC)

Just keep winning, get more Friday night games, convert some of the new attendees into members and the rest will follow.

I agree. However my 5yo son who started coming to games regularly this year winders why we don't have anything after our goals when every other team does. Markets are changing we may have to change with them.

If there was a roof at Optus stadium yesterday it would have blown off.

It was incredible. 

 

The Meth Coke board got exactly  what they wanted, should have been 100,000 seets though. Bad mistake

yeah so much agree

which is worse.... Zooom  or Woof Woof and they go on

The MCG is a difficult ground for atmosphere as even a crowd of 40k is almost lost. Better than 20k at Docklands which is so cold and dark because of the roof closure policy.

50k is just right as it creates artificial demand... as much if not more can be made from such a stadium.

You have to remember that Perth Park (Optus) is not owned by WCE or the AFL. Took a long time for the stadium deal to be done. I would love to know the final details.

As an aside the stadium owners have refused to allow the two goal ends to be named after football players as they want to play down the AFL side of things and promote it as a multi use stadium.

Brings back memories of the guy who ran Docklands when it first opened who said we would have to get used to anew way of going to the football. Lasted about six weeks if I recall.

I agree with most of that, but 100,000 seats would be a strong case to move a Grand Final. I am glad it won’t be, but they ruined a great opportunity 

Meth Coke have a huge membership waiting list

Agree but with showers 13 and windy forecast for Saturday a warm day final is mildly appealing 🙂

The old must have the GF where "the most people" can see it is a bit of a furphy when the  stadium is pre booked by  permanent stakeholders.

Anyway given the 40 year deal it's a little academic

    MUD HEAP by KC from Casey

    In the opening round of the 2018 VFL season, the Casey Demons enjoyed an emphatic 107 point victory over Coburg at Piranha Park. The team was loaded with Melbourne listed players (half a dozen of them were in the team that beat Fremantle on Saturday) and the side was in its way to a grand final appearance. A season and a half later, the club returned to the same venue in the hope of kick starting a season that had gone somewhat awry under new coach Sam Radford and while they tasted victory (as y

    PRETENDERS SENT PACKING by George on the Outer

    Fremantle, the Perth pretenders at sixth on the premiership table should have easily accounted for the Demons, sitting barely a game off the bottom of the ladder.   And for the majority of the game, it certainly looked that would be the case, until the final quarter, when the Demons stopped giving the Dockers easy chances, or making plain, dumb decisions. Not that their situation was helped by some simply appalling umpiring during the match, that kept gifting Fremantle easy scores.  Th

    ORWELLIAN by Whispering Jack

    Please permit me to begin this rather tragic pathetic preview of Melbourne’s forthcoming game against Fremantle with some personal reflections.   Two years ago, we had visitors staying with us who are all sports fans so we arranged tickets for the entire family for the Melbourne vs Fremantle game at the MCG. The Dockers were struggling at the time while the Demons were on the up and up so I was fairly confident about the outcome. Naturally, we all left the ground bitterly disappointed.

    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
