I seriously feel sorry for the MFC employee who will be reading these emails. 

I will not hold back

 

Sharpening the Blades before i commence...

Good for you. However its unlikely they even barrack for us and get paid every week anyway.

The more I think about our problems the more I think our biggest one and most pressing is being homeless. It is really difficult to fully comprehend as we are so used to it. Even the most basic of suburban Clubs has an oval with a pavilion, car parking and a community club feel. That is why I am so hard on Pert, nearly one year in and no communication towards a solution after wasting time on the proposal at the G that should have never got past its initial brainstorm.

I said that the communication from the club to members this year has been appalling. Have not heard boo from our CEO. You’d hardly know he works at MFC

Well I for one am certainly looking forward to his letter of apology and refund at seasons end !!! 😀😀😀

Our problems are onfield and in the Changeroom. The Players work hard, but NEVER hard enough. We are reactive and not proactive, said it here in 2006 and not a thing has changed. 

Our home is The MCG, that is where the Club was conceived, make Finals and the Demon Army will fill the place. 

I want to see the Club work much harder, before they are “gifted a new home”

Members should have received an email today from the club requesting you to participate in a membership survey. It's a good thing they did it today compared to if they sent it on Monday (and following a loss to Carlton if it occurs).

Would love yo know what @Sir Why You Little put down for the top 5 words that come to mind when you think about the Melbourne Football club!

 Nope - not a positive year of football so far and there are limited sliver linings to follow, I'm afraid. Designed to elicit responses that they wish to hear.

This has been a scrawny year for the Website. Dull, lifeless, deficient in explanations,.

We fill in the surveys each year but never get a response or any feedback. I understand that on-field performance will fluctuate, but nothing seems to change off-field regardless of the survey results or feedback.

Communication to members has always been poor, but it has been totally absymal this year. Couple that with the dire on-field performance and I really wonder the club hopes to gain from this survey.

I know you are a committed and passionate supporter so do not wish to argue your point. I just wish we could wave a wand and have the MCG as our home base too. I just cannot see how it could come to pass.I agree on the hard work and hard work and think we should have looked at a monster Barassi  type offer for Joel Selwood years ago to teach a generation how to prepare and play the game.

I am quite happy for the Club to stay where it is, we just need the other clubs who share, to move on. 

I expect a full Independent Review of the Football Dept over Summer. 

Goodwin must have Performance based clauses written into his contract.

I'm afraid I was half hearted about this survey. Answering the questions was like pulling out a splinter, painful but necessary. Couldn't even think of five words. Only put underperforming. What in all honesty do they expect us to say? I passed on the extra comments section. I really couldn't think of anything, it's all been so disappointing. 

I also passed on the competition at the end, for the opportunity to be in the team photo with three ( I think) friends. Do not want to be part of that. Please offer a better prize.

Notated my disappointment on the online survey, but yes I could imagine some office youngsters rolling around in laughter as they read the responses from passionate members over a morning cappuccino.

It is what it is.

The club could have saved the time and effort involved in a survey by simply reading this and one or two other threads currently alive on Demonland.

I think they'd get the picture of how supporters are feeling atm.

Simples!

One wonders why West Coast get to train on the G over us:

This amused me, I just completed the survey and when I hit finished it told me that the Soft ware  did not work and my survey was lost.

Sounds very much like the team. Failed to lift off.

So I sent off an email to the membership department suggesting they might not get many replies if this is the norm.

I will try again soon but it was not very flattering so perhaps they don't need it.

It still astounds me that we can get 50k+ members for a team that has performed well in 5 years of the last 55.

We must be the most deluded bunch of people in society.

    RED AND BLUEPRINT 2019 by Whispering Jack

    The rusty red of the McDonnell Ranges and the blue skies above them provided the perfect backdrop that summed up everything about the Melbourne Football Club’s 2019 season. It set out the perfect red and blueprint for the club’s horror year. The club’s previous season was one of great promise but it ended in a calamitous way in Perth with an 11 goal defeat at the hands of the ultimate premiership side, the West Coast Eagles in a game where the Demons’ first goal came early in the third quar

    WINDY DAY FOOTY by KC from Casey

    Windy day footy has always been the domain of those who play the game hard: on days when the breeze gusts all over the place and the ground has been sodden by recent rains, the player needs to get all aspects of his game together and be hard of body and mind, to concentrate and attack the football. The Casey Demons came out on their own deck in such conditions and under a mainly sunny sky and gave it a crack for half a game but they lost sight of the fundamentals of playing hard in difficul

    TRECIMATED by George on the Outer

    A little more than two months have passed since Melbourne met and came close to beating the reigning premier West Coast in the preliminary final replay over in the West. At the time, the Demons had three wins on the board and now, nine rounds later and going into this week’s match, they have managed to add a paltry two more wins to the ledger.  The Eagles, in contrast, have moved to within percentage of second spot on the ladder despite their loss at home this week against Collingwood.

    SAME STORY, DIFFERENT SONG by George on the Outer

    Melbourne was still suffering from the same old story - a lack of AFL capable players from which to choose at the selection table - and the Western Bulldogs got to sing their song again. But wait, that wasn’t the Doggie’s song we’ve been hearing for the last 30 years, it was some other concoction and no-one knew the words to it but whatever it was, they got to mumble it with gusto after a huge 8 point win! The sad thing is that the Bulldogs (or Footscray or whatever they choose to call

    DOGGED by KC from Casey

    On Sunday, the Casey Demons met the Footscray VFL under the roof at the same venue where their nemesis took them down in the 2017 grand final and the result left them with the same feeling of disappointment - this time with a seven point defeat that ended the club’s four game winning streak and made things a lot harder in terms of playing in this year’s final series.   And, as has so often happened this year, the Demons let the game get away from them with but failing to take advantage of th

    BARKING MAD by The Oracle

    There was so much hype proliferating about Melbourne’s prospects for season 2019 a mere four months ago, that one could be forgiven for thinking anyone contemplating the prospect of a bottom four finish for the Demons at the time was barking mad. That however, is the prospect that they face at the moment and a loss to the Bulldogs on Sunday would make it a virtual certainty.  The club’s downward spiral after several years of moving steadily on an upward trajectory has been well documented i

    THE MELBOURNE WAY by George on the Outer

    Much has been made by the coaching staff of playing a “Melbourne way” style of play. The nail-biting finish by the Demons in the dying minute of the game could not have been any more the case in point.   Leading by a game-high 38 points late in the third quarter, and by five goals at the final change, this should have been the catalyst for a romp home to an easy win.   But that is not the “Melbourne way” and the supporters, especially those with a severe case of MFCSS (aka intense inse

    PINK AND BLUE CAN’T KICK TRUE by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons took on the Northern Blues at home on Saturday  in a game that was crucial in terms of their hopes for September and they took away the valuable four points on offer after some worrying moments. Most of those worries were self-inflicted as a result of some shocking inaccuracy in front of goal, sloppiness in play and a little bit of indiscipline that all combined to make the game a lot closer than it should have been. The final scoreboard showed the Demons winning the P

    GO FIGURE by Sam the Stats Man

    In May last year, a rampant Melbourne side demolished Carlton by 109 points at the MCG. The Demons did as they pleased and ran rings against a young, abysmal Blues combination. The Dees led in virtually every key performance indicator, notably entering the inside 50 metre mark 63 times to 33 and the superiority of their attack was highlighted by a 74% shooting accuracy rate (to 47%).  A little more than a year later the two sides face each other for the first time since that rout and the ta

    GORN AT THE GABBA by George on The Outer

    With Melbourne leading the Brisbane Lions in the second term, and the game in the balance, a Max Gawn ankle injury signalled that the Demons were as good as gorrnnn for the match. Without a suitable 2nd ruck and (once again) forced to use either Tom McDonald, Tim Smith or Sam Weidemann in the ruck the Demons found themselves without a forward line that could kick a winning score. Not that anything really changed, as the forward line has been completely dysfunctional all season and one

    GAMBIT by KC from Casey

    The opening gambit of Saturday afternoon’s game told us everything about who would be its main players and who would come out on top. The Casey Demons were eager to turn the tables on the Box Hill Hawks who beat them in last year’s grand final and then gave them a first up mauling at City Oval, Box Hill. Kicking with the aid of a strong breeze in the opening term, Braydon Preuss’ first hit out went straight to the diminutive Jay Kennedy Harris who pounced with a 70 metre shot at goal that sailed

    MURDER BY NUMBERS by Sam the Stats Man

    The respective ladder positions of this week’s combatants tell the story of one side on the rise and the other in steep decline. Since their most recent meeting which took place early last year, the Dees and the Lions have changed positions. They are opposed to each again on the former’s home turf with the locals in fine fettle after blowing St Kilda off the park at Marvel Stadium.  The Lions’ home ground advantage has been a major consideration so far this year. They have won five out of s
