Received mine Xmas eve. Both Red & Blue and Demon Army cards.

The only thing I didn’t receive which was supposed to be in the pack was the 2x General Admission entry cards. 

Strange delivery this year.

I got mine separately last week and my daughter got hers separately 2 days later. Still waiting on my wife and her twins packs?

We have country membership that used to come in one large package to the same address well before Christmas.

Why the change?

Received text message on 19/12 that packs were with AusPost. Still not received today 2/1, two weeks later.

I know about delays over the holiday period but on the same day that I received the text I ordered items from a Sydney store and received them via AusPost on 24/12. If they can do it, for them why can't AusPost deliver for MFC?

Would anyone mind posting a pic of the new scarf? Anyone object? Good, please post.

Good to see a few cars kitted out in 2019 stickers around here, not many of us in the northern side of Melbourne. 

I would mind. 

BECAUSE I STILL HAVEN’T GOT MY MEMBERSHIP PACK

My bad, hopefully it arrives soon. If it’s any consolation, the key ingredient was and is still missing from our packs. MD said we would get the cards before Xmas.

As they say DZ, Xmas comes every year. 

Not much point getting the 2019 membership card next Xmas however. Strangely, I signed the missis up this year as well as my boy - both their packs arrived between Xmas and New Years, however mine hasn’t arrived yet. And we rolled over start of October.

The lack of communication from the club on this issue is disgraceful. I received a text on 19 December saying that my pack was on its way, and I still haven't received anything.

I have been a member for 35 years and have never had to wait this long for my card to arrive.

I note that the January instalment has not been deducted yet - that at least is sensible, as I would absolutely lose my [censored] if they took more money from me for nothing.

They have been off since Friday 21st till Monday 7th which might account for no reply. If you have been a member for the last 35 years then I am sure you have endured far worse than a delayed delivery. A good year is ahead stay calm.

Does anybody have an idea when the membership packs will be sent  out ? I seem to remember we had them pre Christmas in past years so they could be given as Christmas presents!

 

My wife received hers in the Adelaide mail 5 days ago, and mine arrived yesterday. Pretty basic this year with two scarves each (must have been an oversupply) but there are 2 guest passes in each pack for the home games, in addition to your normal entry entitlements. Flying over for Round 1 - going to be a 'beauty'.

Unless it was a Xmas present, what's the problem? As long as you get your card and pack before round 1. Given the logistics of tens of thousands of memberships, it would always be iffy to expect it before Xmas, regardless of promises, and especially after the boost in memberships after our prelim showing. Storm in a teacup.

You have my vote Mr Shadow.

Paid for 2 Trident memberships...received Membership packs but no cards.  Apparently they tried to get a lot out by xmas & it was a “bit of a stuff up”

It is understandably often a stuff up, but fairy nuff with our growing membership numbers; all can be ameliorated to individual satisfaction in a few weeks - with a phone call to the mbrship dept. Who'd want the pack before Xmas, anyway? The MFC do a great job as it is, and these membership folk are always striving for the best on our behalf - even those interstate , such as my family, receive top service when requested or often, attention to best access/seats/ticket readiness/travelling times, family and friends rendezvous, etc. At times, they make you feel like you are the only Member, such is the quality and attention that they provide, not one in 50000.

Got my MCC/MFC pack in NSW - when I returned on New Years Day. I didn't receive a text. No membership card.

Dee Zephyr - I'll take a photo of the scarf tonight and post it here. Very different to previous (red and blue interchanging v's) - 2019 MCC/MFC members will stand out.

    OUR GRAND OLD FLAG by George On The Outer

    When an AFL Grand Final approaches, supporters look for omens to help them foresee how their team will fare in the contest.   Melbourne supporters were, until just before Saturday’s opening bounce, the best in the business at looking for positives to give them hope and direction - a natural feeling after 57 years in the wilderness. So when the Bulldogs’ streamers kept slipping from the handle of the Premiership Cup as Glen Jackovich delivered it to Optus Stadium, they wondered whether it

    THE ICING ON THE QUAKE by Whispering Jack

    It’s not Christmas yet but if the Melbourne wins its last game of the 2021 season, then many of its fans will be celebrating early. There already are some parts of our town where the pending festivity is preordained. Houses are decked out with red and blue banners and streamers, some of which appeared as early as last Saturday week, on the morning after the Demons’ magnificent 83-point crushing of Geelong in their preliminary final at Optus Stadium. While it’s great to see the numbers of lo

    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
