Will you renew your membership in 2020?

If you’re currently a member will you renew your membership next season or if you’re not a member would you even consider signing up for next season? Something smells rotten at the club, I don’t know what it is but it was evident after last nights lack of effort/care-factor. If the players can’t be bothered trying, I can’t  be bothered renewing mine and my families memberships next season. 

The biggest disappointment for me is the flow on effect from making a Prelim to finishing second last (Gold Coast don’t count as a real team so really, we’re going to finish last). I think we’ll see a significant drop off in members next season after a record number this year. It’s disappointing but I’m over financially and emotionally supporting this basket case of a club. So who’s going to renew? 

(I was going to add a poll but the option disappears after the page fully loads).

I will renew, only after mass changes are made. If Jones and Viney remain Captains, then i will take no interest. 

I will take great interest as to what Darren Hughes has in store for the list over Summer. The AGM will be watched carefully. If the Club just regurgitate spin at me I will keep my wallet closed

I hope other Members feel the same way. The Club must be put on notice, lift your game...

As a Queenslander, no. 

After our improvement last year my partner (Collingwood supporter) and I chose to get Interstate memberships and fly down to Brisbane and Melbourne to see more of the football.

I’ll be going back to using my spare time and money on holidays I don’t return depressed and disappointed from.

More gutted and disheartened than any of the 30+ years I’ve supported the club 2bh 💔

Yes, though being a interstate family membership I think I don't shell out as much in $$$

Plus the packs keep my kids interested to an extent.

Fair enough for the kids, I remember as a young fella getting my pack at the start of every year was something I looked forward too, regardless of how our previous season went. Luckily my little one (and the one due in October) will be too young to remember/know what a membership pack is.

Nope.... no way.

Im going to spend that money on something that will make me feel better. I already give to a cat charity in Thailand, so i will just be adding extra to my support next year.

Wiseblood is going to buy an extra membership for whoever doesnt re-sign anyway.

Our little group talked about it last night after the game. Group started with nine of us that became friends during out time in the Redlegs, My father, myself, my wife, our two kids and two other couples. Expanded to eleven with kids partners before fate stepped in and took the first my dad. Then added three more (grandkids) before fate struck again taking two more including my wife. One more added since another grandchild.  We are all members and go most weeks, though must admit getting more difficult with kids sport commitments. We will stay members regardless, or until fate steps in again.

I’ll renew but they can get forked on the gf guarantee I always pay. Easily the most disappointing and disheartening season on the 30 years I have followed our club

I will not automatically renew this October. I'll wait until the first month of the 2020 season. If it's a repeat of this year, I'm done.

This was my thought process every year up until now. But I’m finding it extremely difficult to hand over money to a club whose players clearly don’t care and aren’t trying.

This club could drag me down the Monash Freeway by the balls and then hose me down with vinegar and for some reason id still renew. Kills me but I bloody love the joint.

Already endured the worst of the worst, so why would I stop now.

Deep down I must get off on this [censored]. Bring it on.

To all those who will renew, at least make the club earn it. They need to know that the support base has had enough

At least wait until the AGM to hear what the plans are. Don’t give them free money 💰

Yes, I will renew for all of us. I try not to worry about the financial aspect even though it’s hard more often than not with 4 young kids. It’s become a great family outing over the last few years (obviously not enjoyable this season). The kids understand the game a bit better now and I’d like to keep it that way. 

I also understand people have a breaking point, I’ve also asked myself if the time invested on Game Day is really worth it, especially after performances like last night.

Gossip and rumour of course, but yes the things I've heard paint a very poor picture from the board down.

There is division in the board, there is a 'click' group of Mahoney, Goodwin and Viney (Snr), there is a split between the co-captains, there is unrest with one co-captain in particular among the playing group, a president who has the biggest ego out of all of them and there is a growing disconnect with former greats of the club, both players and others, who have been basically shunned from the club.

Some of those things can be improved by winning games, simple as that, but we are very very much on a knife edge right now.

Will wait and see!! Have had 40 continuous years of membership.  Too raw and early.  I want to see what they do in the off season first. The club needs a strong message from mostly forgiving supporters.  Depends who wants to accept mediocrity from their football club until their death. How many coaches have this club burnt through?  Is there anybody who can coach this club to a flag?  Yet to find them in 55 years

Yes. The club is more important than the players, coaches or administrators.

Next year is my 20th consecutive and 25th overall. (Missed a year as I didn’t work for a year with injuries).

Went a full year when recovering from a broken hip. This year I’ve not watched any game not involving Melbourne, turned games off, not even turned games on that did involve us.

I’m 99% sure I’m done or at most a country membership. The four hour+ round trips and cost ain’t fun and we will be welcoming Sunday twilight games next year. Auto renew will be cancelled. Reserved seat and GGF def not taken. 

Hope im the jinx and it works out well for the rest of you.

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2019

    PART ONE - OVERTURE  I have a disclaimer at the outset. I’m not a fan of the races - be they horses or motors of any kind. Once the final siren sounds on the football season, I find the month or so that follows and corresponds roughly with the Spring Racing Carnival to be the most boring time of the year for sports fans. You turn on the radio and you’re confronted by the monotonous drone of a self-proclaimed racing expert or by the nasally twang of an ex-jockey banging on about the equine p

    CHANGES 2019 by The Oracle

    PART 1 - IT’S A LITTLE MORE COMPLICATED THIS TIME This year’s free agency, trade and draft period will see the usual drama and upheaval as the AFL’s 18 clubs seek to better their lists in order to challenge for finals and possibly premiership honours. Long before the final siren sounded on the season just over a week ago, the maneuvering was under way with player agents and clubs discussing possible player movements and in some cases, deals had already been done.  Yesterday, the r

    HOW FAR SOUTH? by George on the Outer

    It was appropriate that Melbourne was playing its last game of season 2019 in Hobart.  After all, how much further south could the team go? And much as it has done in many of the previous 22 games, the side managed to extract a loss from a winning position by simply giving the ball back to the opposition time and time again. In fact, they gave it back to the opposition to the tune of 53 points from turnovers while, by way of contrast North Melbourne contributed  only 17 points to their oppo

    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
