Yes - I just see it as an expensive charitable donation but where I’ve lost the receipt.

As an overseas resident, I can only watch AFL matches with a membership,

you definitely do not need a membership to watch AFL matches

I’ve been a member for 34 years, the last 16 as an interstate member and make at least one trip a year over east to watch a game. I wouldn’t consider myself a fair weather supporter. There just comes a time when enough is enough. 

Been a member 25 years and bought family memberships for the past 15 years when the wife has no interest and never attends and the kids tickets are shuffled between nephews and nieces. After this year, I will definitely downgrade to just a ticket for myself and forget the effective donation of an extra $200-$300 for the other tickets. Similar to @beetle, I feel compelled to contribute in the unlikely event we are ever any good, but the finances can't keep donating as much to rubbish. I might even get back into local footy coaching to ensure I can't ruin my weekends watching them!

I support the club as I do family or friends, so yes, I'll always renew.

Fair weather 'supporters' can [censored] right off.

 

I will support a club that values me as a member.

I don't think it's smart to just follow anything with blind loyalty.

If they are open, listen to members views and take action then they get my money.

If they try to deflect & not take the hard questions at the AGM then they lose me.

Yes of course i will, i love our club. 

I have made some great friends, who are like family to me. We have been members for over 20 years, and like all demon, members/supporters, we are, also gutted seeing our great club fall into a heap this year. 

I heard David Neitz on sen a few weeks ago, and he was saying how the 666 rule has hurt us this year, but then said it can be fixed. Also said we should have a near to full list who will be able to a full pre-season.

So have faith guys we can turn it around.

Though i understand it ive never been the type to particularly  matyr myself to this kind of immovable  position.

Quite frankly i value my time ...and money. Though , as many will/would,  I follow the Dees and could never anotherI really  dont see the enjoyment in suffering. Lots of other things to do and see. Life is short.

Those that  want to put it in terms of bandwagons (  and i dont subscribe. .however ) must surely see unless blind that ours is a old falling apart float from 1964's Moomba parade.  Theres no semblance  of a recognisable tune, the band is way off key, half the instruments are broken and held together with duct tape. The bandleaders wont get into sync and the conductor is busy whispering to the horses pulling this irrelevancy through a lost part of town because his map is old and hasnt been updated.

I would relish that we are brave enough to be brutally honest, clever enough excise that which does not help and grow that which will. That might require very deep and thorough tilling.

If the club doesn't then it will matter little  what I or some others here do as elsewhere 30000 or so might make our views moot.

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'm definitely going to renew my membership along with our 3 kids. Might even sign the wife up.

While I can understand the anger and disappointment, which as a member I share too, I genuinely believe we can bounce back next season and be in contention and every membership and supporter attending games will help. I urge fellow supporters to sign up and signup early as a show of support fr the club - dedicated demon is a good auto renew option. Dees!

Absolutely...I am confident of next year & regard my membership as just a way of supporting the club I choose to follow ...unfortunately in life sometimes things don’t go the way you wish but I could never support another club

Each year when I pay my mcc subs I always renew my mfc/mcc membership at the same time. This year I didn't. I will renew it but I thought stuff it they can wait a few months.

I will decide after 4-5 games to see how we come out of the blocks.
If it's the same mindless rubbish ..... No.

Auto renew Premium Member for 15 years. If it's more of the same after a month I will cancel my membership. It's a lot of money for no reward. 

I would still attend games but GA tickets only.

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 💰 

Thanks for telling us what to do with our money.

I will renew the 2 memberships in my household.

No such this as a Melbourne fair weather supporter.
They're all long gone.
I too have been a member for 15yrs and seeing a game is a 7hr round trip.
Can make for some very disappointing drives home.
Haven't wasted my time this year.

Well on Demonland we have mostly die hard, rusted on, desensitised and completely deluded supporters here.  So it is to be expected that most Demondlanders who are members will go around for another round of flagellation. It is the 20-30 odd thousand ones who are not on Demonland who will be more likely to bail out.

Who gives you the right to tell anybody what to do

I'll pay you if you will stop the whingeing and whining

Looking forward to you standing up at the AGM, if you are there of course, and stating your case, as if

I have already asked when I can renew and will be doing so at the first opportunity

    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
