I am on automatic renew.  I will continue as a member because I am currently plagued by the current inertia affecting the team and too listless to make the effort to resign.

Yes but will be cancelling the gf guarantee. Times like these makes moments like last year that little bit sweeter.

Yep. Hopefully all the drop offs will make it easier to get decent Grand Final tickets 😉

I have to admit, they are making it bloody hard. Barely went to any games this year and interest in footy has dropped to an all time low.

They have a hell of a lot of work to do.

To be honest im 50/50.

The thought of not renewing has never crossed my mind.

My husband, daughter and dog will also get their membership renewed again. My parents and grandparents would roll over in their graves if I ever stopped being a member of the MFC. I think I would be haunted forever.

A bad season and you jump off, what a fickle bunch we are. 

Stay strong, the sun will come up tomorrow and the pre-season training reports will get you excited again.

Normally I renew without question, and even up until a month ago I would have said of course yes.

But now I'm a wait-and-see. If the decisions made are promising, the offensive spin coming from the club ends, and we come to play in the preseason then yes.

Otherwise, if we have a good run a third of the way through the season I may consider a three game membership.

Watching on TV until it becomes clear the players actually care.

20 + plus year member, life time supporter and third generation Demon. 

The club lost its football soul when it sacked Norm Smith and it has never recovered it. 

Swooper Northey , The Reverend and to a lesser extent Balmy nearly recovered it.

Last years finals were fun, but unfortunately, we have slipped back to being an irrelevant football club , not a real football club.

We all know it and are in denial, No culture of winning since 1964 , no ruthless true  football soul, poor on field leadership and a lack of real passion. Even North and Essendon can recover from last weeks debacle , we cant because no one really cares enough. Sorry but this is the truth and the only clubs that we can compare ourselves with are GWS, GC and Fremantle. Even St. Kilda has more football soul but they are just perennial losers.  

We have always fallen victim to the Establishment, Private School Image in our leadership and that was the reason Norm Smith got sacked. The cycle can only be broken with an extremely strong leadership group and at the moment we don't have that and I cant see anything on the horizon. Last Year I dared to dream with Jackson and Goodwin and Co, the Pert appointment destroyed that and Goodwin has been thrown to the wolves. 

More pain ahead, Membership is a donation for hope (Don't hold your breath).

For sure. We have the best list we’ve had in 12 years. When Gus Clarry Trac etc are all 25-30yo we will be a force. Just need our coaching and maybe admin to get its [censored] together. 

Stick tight folks

a president who has the biggest ego out of all of them

I would love a President like what Ian Dicker was to Hawthorn.

Someone with business smarts, with the club at heart, ego checked at the door & who mixes with the fans...

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 is what I’m struggling with. I’ve got an addictive personality so yes of course I will but seriously f   K the players this time around. This sits on them as much as it does the footy dept who screwed this year up. Good clubs might have a down year, that is still a top 8 finish, scratching and clawing to a top 8 result. Our players are too arrogant and soft to do that.

Nnnooooo not our club, 2nd last.

Some are, most aren’t. The results and obvious lack of effort speaks for itself. We lost to the Swans by almost 10 goals, come on.

If you don’t want to renew next year mate then don’t, that’s fine and you are well within your rights to do so given the reasons you’ve pointed out. It is a choice after all...

For me...id rather keep coughing up regardless, because (if and) when we do finally break that drought and snag a flag...whenever the hell that may be, I’ll know myself that I have truly supported the club through thick and thin and i reckon that might make things that little bit sweeter.

At the very least, no one I know has ever been able to accuse me of being a bandwagon supporter. We are a laughing stock no doubt, but my family and mates respect me for sticking by this basket case of a club. Makes me feel a bit better about things anyway...

Yes they were good times indeed. It has been a pathetic and woeful year, but those 2 finals were fantastic to attend (still get goosebumps thinking about them).

Should we eventually win another bloody flag, my hunger will be well satiated and my appetite might then wane. But until then, i remain as hungry, deluded and committed to this wretched club as ever. It's abusive, it's not fair and it's causing irreparable harm that will one day require pharmacological and psychological assistance. I just can't help it.

I really do loathe this club at times, but i will always love it more. I'm too far in to back out now.

When all others leave......we remain!

I will next season, mine is automatic anyway, but if next year is as bad as this one with no changes, then I don’t know after that?

First change I want to see is an improvement in our fitness team now that Misson is gone, I want May and TMac fully fit.

Second change is an improvement in our efficiency, turnovers kill you at AFL level and we are the champs at it. 🤦🏼‍♂️

Third, a GAME PLAN B 😓

    BACK IN STYLE by Whispering Jack

    From the moment when the Elton John character in the movie “Rocketman” burst into its opening scene dressed as a flamboyant demon on his way to an addiction rehabilitation session, the game was on. Here was yet another film about a person gifted with a meteoric rise to stardom finding coke, booze and a hedonistic lifestyle that led directly to a destructive crash into the abyss. Ultimately, these stories end in total disaster (“A Star is Born”, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Judy”) but this one resulted

    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

    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
