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!

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.

    COOKED by The Oracle

    I can vividly remember when the Demons ventured onto Blundstone Arena for the first time in early 2016 only to lose to the Kangaroos by 20.11.131 to 21.10.136.    Melbourne was then a team on the up and up: young, enthusiastic and bold. It gave up a huge quarter time deficit after kicking against a strong wind but made that up by half time and fell dramatically short after an exciting high scoring affair.  The team lost no fans that day - they were willing to take the game on and attac

    HELP by KC rom Casey

    The Casey Demons finished off their home and away season against Frankston at Skybus Stadium on Sunday with a narrow, unconvincing 6-point victory that left the door slightly open for a top eight berth when the VFL finals begin in a fortnight’s time. While sunny skies prevailed over Frankston in the morning, the skies became overcast by noon and heavy waves pounded the bay nearby as the rains came in to greet the players as the game started. And conditions stayed dark and dreary for the rem

    THANKS BUT NO THANKS by George on the Outer

    Thanks, but no thanks! In a round where the club was supposed to thank their fans for the support during the year, the Melbourne Football Club chose to do otherwise with a 53 point loss to a team that sat 15th on the ladder.  Don’t give us cheap jumpers that can’t be sold in the Demon shop.  Don’t give us vouchers to shop there, give us something on the field, which is why we come to the football in the first place. It was a disgraceful performance, which started with a disgracefu

    SLEEP OUT AT THE MCG by The Oracle

    Around about 12 months ago Melbourne and Sydney fought out an epic battle between two top eight teams fighting for the best possible ladder position in the lead up to the finals. The Swans triumphed by 9 points at the MCG after the Demons came back from five goals down at three quarter time. But for its poor kicking for goal, Melbourne might well have won the game and finished in the top four. Who knows what might then have happened for the club in September? As a consequence, the person re

    A LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE by KC from Casey

    Two clubs that have been hard hit by injury recently took part in a dour battle under dark clouds and, with intermittent showers falling, it wasn’t a pretty game at Victoria Park on Sunday. Despite all that, the Casey Demons added a little ray of sunshine to their day to get the job done over a "traditional" rival with a 15 point victory over Collingwood VFL that breathed life back into their season. There were a few highlights at the ground that in past days has seen many titanic batt

    THE RETRO ROUND by George on the Outer

    We have seen it all before… Yes, a wonderful idea to showcase what used to be in football.  Big crowds, umpires who knew how to apply the rules and not opinions, high marks, skilful players. But for the Melbourne supporters their retro is what it has been like for the past 10 years. Losing games, end on end, year after year.  Opportunities squandered in front of goal. VFL standard players running around at the MCG. Just more of the same, and the game against Collingwood was no ex

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    Thanks to Demonlanders for their input into this week’s preview. Ralphius Maximus is short and bittersweet: We'll crack in at the bounce to create a contest, win our share of the ball, butcher the forward movement and get scored on easily from the intercepts. Not that hard to predict. Big Demon says: Unfortunately Collingwood will win because they have a lot more to play for. We will be good in parts but really the season is well over so we will have to put up with those bell

    WHAT, NO BLOOD? by George on the Outer

    The feeling when turning up to the MCG on a Saturday night to play a top four side in Richmond, while the Melbourne sits cemented in close proximity to the bottom of the table is like attending the Colosseum in Ancient Roman times. The expectation is that a bloodbath is about to occur. There are 100,000 Richmond members and 50,000 Melbourne members, and despite the fact that it turned out to be a wet night after half-time, a crowd of only 37K bothered to turn up. That should never have happ

    A MAN’S ERRAND by KC from Casey

    A young and undermanned Casey Demons were sent out on Saturday to the Swinburne Centre in the shadows of the MCG on a man’s errand against a very experienced Richmond VFL combination which is the clear ladder leader and fielded no less than 18 AFL listed players. It was expected to be a rout and the Tigers made easy work of it in the early stages when they held a 26 point lead by quarter time. To their credit however, the Demons weathered the storm and kept their opponents within the range

    THAT’S FOOTBALL by Whispering Jack

    As the season rolls on towards the finals and the football world witnesses the aftermath of the sacking of the league’s unsuccessful coaches, it’s almost  inevitable that the spotlight will turn firmly upon the complete and utter failure of season 2019 - the Melbourne Football Club.  For a team that finished in fourth place last year and was heavily touted as a premiership contender, the fall from grace has been dramatic. As things stand, the Demons look certain to finish 13 places down on

    THE MOMENT OF TRUTH IS COMING by KC from Casey

    At half time in Sunday’s game at Trevor Barker Beach Oval, things weren’t looking too flash for the flailing finals prospects of the Casey Demons. Key forward Sam Weideman had suffered a concussion in his first contest and, with a few exceptions, the team was playing like a rabble rather than a finals contender. The Demons were 23 points in arrears to the Zebras and their season was headed towards oblivion. It was the skipper Mitch White who spurred his team on by word and by deed - he fini

    RIPPING THE HEART OUT by George on the Outer

    And BOG for St. Kilda in last night’s game at Marvel Stadium? It was Melbourne!  This brilliant contributor managed to be the initiator of 13.7 in turnovers for the side, and resulted in a come from behind victory for the mighty Saints. That’s it folks, Melbourne have set a new record for the most turnovers resulting in opposition scores. Despite leading half way through the final quarter (yet again) the Demons managed to right themselves and deliver the ball directly to the opposition
