Calling All MCC Members

Recommended Posts

It's about time the club was actively trying to convert our MCC brethren using the players. More of this please MFC.

I'm a MCC/MFC member which costs an arm and a leg to renew annually. I get literally no benefits being an MFC member that my MCC membership doesn't already provide, I just do it to support my club. Perhaps if they reduced the MFC membership component by half then most would sign up.

Out of interest do you get to choose which MFC membership package you attach to your MCC membership? 

Great effort on taking both.

Yes, you can choose a standard MFC membership about $85 or a premium membership which is about $160. MCC memberships are another $400 - $700 depending on circumstances.

Good on you WYL.

So it's an additional 13% to add on the standard MFC membership?

Would be about that Moonie. I bought the Premium Package, i don’t get to many games now as a cab ride into the City in traffic is a very expensive day out and i don’t have a train station close by. 

I am starting to question the MCC Membership, but whilst the Demons are on the rise i shall continue fork out

I met one a few weeks ago for a business venture and asked point blank if he had signed up as an MFC member and he said no. I told him our business interests would only progress if he signed up. He laughed and I asked why he was laughing and that I was serious.

The basic MFC component for MCC members is neglible (less than 15%) and anybody who doesn’t take it out is merely a tightwad (especially when they are likely to spend more days at the footy than watching cricket)! There are very few MCC members who genuinely cannot afford it! 

(In my case I have a MCC Guest Pass on top of my MCC membership and my MFC membership so I don’t get change from a ‘gorilla’ and a ‘monkey’: I have never been to the cricket in over 50 year’s membership but it is worth every cent watching the Dees march to their first Premiership since 1964!)

Why cab it when you can use limo service who will wait for you when game finishes

Any MCC member who claims they support Melbourne but won't by a membership is a bum

I may look into that. I get half price cabs as it is, but sitting in traffic for at least half the journey still adds up. 

It can be far more relaxing watching a big screen in a pub. 

But i still Fork out for the Memberships

Both clubs need cash to roll on

I agree with your enthusiasm, but the bolded bit is simply a stereotype.

Do you have facts to back it up?

Last I looked, there was no income test on the MCC applications. My old man, for example, was a 50+ year member who struggled to find the money most years. I know of 2 other members who have let it lapse because of finances.

MCC member and also an MFC member.  I made the decision many years ago when we were close to going to the wall.  I could not face the idea of not doing my bit if we had gone bust.

I only sit in the MCC for away games and Cricket.

My 22 year-old daughter isnt sure about the benefit of having her MCC membership, especially when she works part time, and has just purchsed her first home by herself. I keep telling her that the membership is worth it, but struggle to say exactly why. She does not have an MFC membership as she cant justify having both on her wage.

Should i tell her to just let the MCC membership lapse and join the Dees instead?

The MFC membership is merely a donation on our behalf. In return we get a scarf and a sticker... I understand why MCC members don't buy one. It's like asking people to fork out $85 - $160 extra for the same product with little to no gain in return. If you want our money, then the MFC need to offer dual members extra add ons, or a reduced rate of membership. Hell, even put on a sausage sizzle for dual members one day of the year with a chance to meet the players and i'm sure they will all fork out the extra $85.

Maybe it is an unfortunate stereotype but I do personally know some members who are very well off but don’t fork out the extra (and only go to the marquee matches)!  I despise their stingyness!

I, like doubtless many others, decided that the best practical way we could support the club was to take up the MCC/MFC membership which I've done for over 10 years. We will continue to do it til hell freezes over and whether we get any type of incentive doesn't enter into our thinking. I couldn't care less but I love the club and will continue to do it.

Come on MCC members. Get on board !!!!

    MARCHING IN by The Oracle

    The most embarrassing loss of the 2018 season (perhaps aside from the Preliminary Final) for Melbourne was the one it suffered in Round 15 against lowly St Kilda. The Demons came into the game as a red hot favourite but were embarrassed by the Saints' speed and willingness to take the contest right up to them for virtually the full four quarters. It was a defeat that they were to bemoan for the remainder of the season. Their arrogance in going into the game and taking an opponent lightly was a c

    RELENTLESS by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons returned to the winning list with an emphatic 54 point victory over a limp North Melbourne VFL combination at Casey Fields on Saturday. Smarting from last week’s thrashing at Box Hill, the Demons came out of the blocks intent on redeeming themselves for their embarrassing start to the 2019 campaign.  After a brief early bout of inaccuracy, the goals flowed as a result of relentless pressure applied to the visitors who were constantly forced into error. The pleasing thi

    TO A “T” by George on the Outer

    Thursday night football - not something Melbourne FC are accustomed to doing, especially after barely garnering a Friday night game for years. Yet with this opportunity, the Demons soundly beat the Swans at the SCG and put their season back on Track. This was not only a game of mental toughness, since the Demons had so far failed to win a game in 2019 and faced possibly a season ending prospect of 0-4, should they have failed in Sydney.  History was against them, and Buddy Frankli

    SWANSONG by Whispering Jack

    They said that in 2019, the Melbourne Football Club was going to take its game to another level but we were never prepared for the level the club is reaching as it approaches the fourth round of the season holding up the entire AFL ladder in a match that could be its swansong for the year.    We were meant to be premiership contenders, not playing off for a wooden spoon which is what will be the case unless there is a sudden and dramatic turn around in our fortunes!    And whilst there

    A DAY TO FORGET by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons started the 2019 in unimpressive fashion with a 62 point loss to the  Box Hill Hawks at Box Hill City Oval. It was a total contrast to their 2018 opening when they monstered the Coburg Lions but the circumstances were entirely different. Twelve months ago, the Demons were able to go into the match with a large contingent of AFL listed players while yesterday, they went into the game with 12 Melbourne players, mostly inexperienced.  They were also hampered by the AFL sc

    2019 IS NOT 2018 by George on the Outer

    Seems like an obvious statement doesn’t it?   Yet the MFC coaching staff/team seem to have forgotten to change their calendars on January 1st. A 3 goal loss against the equal bottom side in the competition and now with a 0-3 record for the current season, it should be obvious that things have changed from 2018.  Not so on the field, as Melbourne continue to play the style which got them to a Preliminary final.   Once again the Demons saw 20 goals scored against them for the game.

    THE NIGHT OF THE TORTOISES by The Oracle

    Friday night sees two clubs of which a great deal was expected in 2019, facing off in the battle of the slow starting tortoises. Both have had calamitous starts to the season and are sitting at 0-2. One of them will, by the end of the evening, be seeing their season slipping away from their grasp.   Both clubs are playing without confidence and without purpose. The Demons, who had the best-performed attack of all clubs last year, managed to convert 73 entries inside their forward 50 metre a

    THE CAT RUN by George on the Outer

    It truly became a “Cat Run” with an 80 point win to the home side, an outcome that had us wondering what happened to the Demons of 2018 when they got to a Preliminary final on the basis of their “brand” of contested football?   Well that part hasn’t changed any, since the likes of Clayton Oliver can win the ball 44 times in a game including 15 clearances, Angus Brayshaw racks up 33 touches with Jack Viney chipping in for 27 of this own.  In the ruck Max Gawn had 53 hitouts on the night, and

    REDEMPTION? by the Oracle

    How much should we be making out of Melbourne’s opening round loss on its home ground against an unfancied team from interstate in Port Adelaide?  The game was barely over before the excuses were coming out that about the lack of preparation of the team, the fact that some players were playing injured or unfit and unable to handle the humidity and the heat, the team’s lack of run and spread, the lack of experience and having too many key players injured or (in the case of Steven May) suspen

    OVERPOWERED by George on the Outer

    If there was ever a prime example of a team of players not ready for the new football season it was Melbourne in the opening round of 2019.   Throughout the field there was just too much evidence of players who haven’t had sufficient pre-season or players who ordinarily wouldn’t have even graced the field at this early stage.   The Demons also got a lesson on selection with Port Adelaide showing that two ruckmen on the field is an essential for this season.  It was a lesson that should

    THE WELCOME GAME by Whispering Jack

    The Melbourne Football Club has moved forward in leaps and bounds since it last met Port Adelaide in a totally forgettable (for Demon fans) season opener on the MCG.  That game, played on Sunday, 31 March, 2013 before a crowd of 22,924, was supposed to be a close encounter between two of the competition’s lesser lights from the previous season when the Power had finished 14th and the Demons 16th (ahead only of AFL newbies Gold Coast and GWS). It turned into a slaughter with Port taking the

    THE WALKING WOUNDED by Paddy Gosch

    Forget the fact that Melbourne narrowly missed out on getting the four JLT points on offer for a second consecutive week and the blow to the ego of a supposed top four contender losing ... well almost at home ... to a team that has recently dwelt in the AFL cellar and won a mere five games in 2018. The things that emerged from the horror final JLT outing was that the Demons are a long way from being prepared to take on the rigours of a long tough season in which they have one of the hardest fixt
