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

We can all make up our own mind Saty.

However, if SWYL wants to suggest a form of protest then he is entitled to do so.

For another suggestion.

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.

There will be a fan forum after the season, plan your questions for then as all key people will be in attendance.

The same right as you who slag off people who disagree with you re the players. 

Stop being so sensitive and have a discussion.

It’s been a good discussion so far, I take my hat off to the people that have already decided to renew their and their families memberships. To keep it going as it is, simply don’t reply to those who can’t keep it civil and decide to get personal.

This thread now has a poll.

Can we have a 'Downgrade' option? 

For those that will drop the GFG or to fewer games etc.

I am an AFL member (Melbourne support) for 30 odd years.

Now days I travel a lot and get to maybe 8 Melbourne games and then supplement it with good neutral games usually against interstate teams where is it easy to rock up at the MCG or Docklands without reserving a seat.

Arranged my travel schedule this year to spend May onwards in Melbourne expecting a great season. Took off for Asia yesterday.

I'll renew next year but unless MFC gives me reason to renew further that could be the end for me. There's just other things to do and if they cannot be competitive I'm just not interested.

Like many have said this miserable season has even sucked the joy for me of watching other teams which was my saviour for so many years when we were hopeless.

I have gone on record as saying Goodwin should go and my reasoning is simply that the club is becoming irrelevant and the coach has not delivered.If we go to the bye next year and then sack him we will inevitably face another rebuild and from an MFC viewpoint we know what that means.

Finally the inability to influence a game with Gawn, Oliver, Petracca, Brayshaw (names that excited so many only 12 months ago) is just so depressing to the supporter group.

For those not renewing, are you going stop whingeing on DL? I think it's only fitting you do

I am completely dissatisfied in how we have.performed this season, difference is I don't have to slag off the players to make myself feel better

Made my feelings known to the Club and not from behind the anonymity of a keyboard or username

No ..... They sent a truck load of manure to Punt road.
Back in 2003 a disgruntled supporter of ours sent chicken hearts to Junction oval.
David Neitz wasn't impressed at the time but they were the yo-yo years and well deserved (which they are now).

Saty, I appreciate your training reports and contribution to Demonland but I don't agree with potting supporters who have had enough. I really hope that our supporters renew, and that more than 70% on here plan to is a real positive, but I respect those who don't plan to renew and hope that after a break from the emotional torture of this year they decide (foolishly or not) to give another roll of the dice.

To borrow the words of Max Gawn, you cannot win a premiership in the offseason but you can certianly lose one, the same applies to our supporter base who are important to achieving success and being a strong club.

Of course I will renew as I do every year with the MCC subscription. Now more than ever the club needs our support and not joining doesn't assist and I don't think it is a protest. The club is aware of supporter dissatisfaction and if you want to protest do say via membership otherwise your comment won't be read. Also don't take it out on the volunteer who may ring you next year when you haven't rejoined. Don't shoot the messenger.

Friday night's pathetic display from most, no spirit - no fight - no skills - no care factor against a bog ordinary out of form bunch of mostly bog ordinary footballers where we got trounced - zero improvement for the entire season (got worse as the season went on), was the final straw for me....

Switching off auto renewal of 3 memberships and might renew depending on what 'Actions' are taken in the off season and see how we start off in the first 5 to 6 rounds next year before deciding.

If we are still gifting games to the likes of Spargo, ANB and O-Mac i wont be renewing again until Goody's tenure is over.

If we are still playing a putrid crash bash "numbers getting sucked into the contest - pathetic structure on the outside" game style with no overlap capability, no tempo possesion capability, a terrible skill set and the AFL's reigning turnover kings i wont be renewing again until Goody's tenure is over.

New Captain - Has to be Max.  There is no one else with the right attitude/voice to take this club forward other than Lewis who is about to pull up stumps.

FCS build and create a potent forward line with a genuine KPF and some classy speedy smalls who can take contested marks, gather some crumbs and find the goals on a regular basis.  Get some run, class and finish on the outside!!

P.S.  Goody - Fritschkreig is our only decent forward right now ....leave him there and stop with all the insane experiments that take you 15 rounds before you finally work out they aren't bloody working!  Some players are meant to play and star in certain positions forward or back of the square...learn to recognise and accept it and play to their/our strengths wherever possible.

Note to the bulk of the playing group, at least those that survive what should be a massive list cull (exceptions Maxy, Clarry, Harmes, Salem, Frostmeister, Fritschkreig, May, Hore, Tracc, Lewis, anyone injured or coming back from a long layoff and the rookies),  ....

Step up and grow a pair you pea hearts or bugger off to the country leagues or VFL and stay there!

END

    PACK YOUR BAGS by George on The Outer

    The scene was captured by the TV camera’s before the match with a view of the Melbourne side’s bags packed next to the team bus to facilitate their flight up north to the AFL hub where they will play their next matches. However, on the basis of the efforts against Richmond, unless things change, and change rapidly, there will be some who will be told to pack their bags on a more permanent basis. Once again, the supporters got much the same story from this match against Richmond, as

    SOUTH OF THE BORDER by the Oracle

    Thankfully they moved this week’s game from Sydney where the sun shines and the virus breeds ever so slowly and almost nobody returns a positive test. The change of fixture comes at precisely the right time to allow everyone in town to head to the MCG on Sunday at around 3:30pm, not to catch up with what’s going on inside the ground but rather, to do what’s fashionable for woke folk in 2020 — pulling down statues. It’s time for Kevin Bartlett and Leigh Matthews to go but you can’t touch Norm Smi

    LESSONS IN LOSING by George on the Outer

    Turn up for the game and look like you want to win it.  Melbourne lost this game to Geelong, a game after a couple of extended breaks, looking like they were at the end of a 22 game season. Right from the start there was a lack of intensity across the board, as the Demons played exactly the type of game that the ageing Geelong list wanted. Geelong repeatedly played possession footy, to avoid having to run those ageing legs, something that Melbourne failed to exploit.  To use the oft quot

    QUARRANTINO by Whispering Jack

    At a little after 4.00pm last Saturday, the MCG ceased to be the centre of the AFL universe. That was when the AFL’s el supremo Gil McLaughlin announced that the Bombers’ Conor McKenna had returned a COVID-19 positive result and declared that the game set for the following day between Essendon and Melbourne was postponed.  What followed was truly the stuff of a pulp fiction novel. We witnessed a suitcase load of mental gymnastics and spin calculated to let McKenna (and the Essendon Football

    WHADDA WE SING? by Whispering Jack

    When the Melbourne team sang “The Grand Old Flag” last Saturday at Marvel Stadium in the absence of skipper Max Gawn, Ed Langford and Adam Tomlinson who were first time winners at their new club and Jayden Hunt, the leading goal kicker of the day it was passed off as an honest mistake. Taken in isolation, it most probably was accidental but the problem is that little accidents have been happening far too often in the club’s recent history and, in this case, it was symptomatic not only of a day t

    A POINT OF DIFFERENCE by George on the Outer

    It was Melbourne v Carlton at the comics stadium; a game between 16 and 17 in 2019. How could anyone pick a winner?  There had to be a point of difference, and so it would prove to be as the Demons literally fell over the line at the end, by a solitary point. In an almost complete replica of the Richmond v Collingwood game two nights previously, one of the sides (Melbourne in this case) rushed out to a five goal lead in the first quarter, while the Blues failed to bother the goal umpir

    EXPOSED FORM by The Oracle

    Carlton fancies itself to beat Melbourne at Marvel Stadium on Saturday and, based on exposed form, why not? The Blues took it right up to the reigning premiers in their last up start and the Demons were simply horrible against the Eagles at Optus Stadium. That opening game of the season revived all of the nightmares of 2019 for a team that went inside the 50 metre arc 45 times, an advantage of 10 times over the home side and yet lost by almost five goals. Such statistics sum it up for a gam

    SOCIAL DISTANCING by George on the Outer

    It was good to see the MFC players practicing the directives about social distancing at the game against West Coast.  Pity was that they continued to do so after the first bounce of the ball, as they allowed numerous WCE players run around un-hindered, with not a Melbourne player within 1.5 metres of them! They then found themselves looking at nearly a 5 goal deficit at the first break, which was to be essentially the final margin for the game. It is difficult to judge exactly what is going

    BEST IN SHOW by Whispering Jack

    I am writing this knowing that the AFL has deemed that the opening round of competition will proceed but fully believing that it should not.  The world is going through cataclysmic change as a result of the overwhelming spread of the Covid-19 virus and I agree that a distraction like sport would be good for the public. However, while the physical threat to the population is bad enough, there are other  issues to be addressed including the mental health of the community and the effects on th

    TASSIE DEVILS by Van Demon

    If you were looking for something new from the Demons that wasn’t there last year, you didn’t have to look further than the perfectly trimmed grass surface of UTAS Stadium last night as the team steamrolled the Hawks to record a comprehensive 32-point victory to complete their Marsh Community Series commitments for 2020. One new thing was the fact that for the second Marsh game in a row, the team finished full of running and they dominated the second half without the presence or the dominan

    The Demons will go into their final Marsh Series match with a strong lineup against the Hawks in Tasmania. Both Max Gawn and Steven May, who were recovering from injuries in first Marsh Series match, have both been named. It is unclear whether Max will be on restricted minutes and will likely get breaks in the ruck with Sam Weideman and rookie Luke Jackson getting their turns in the middle. Angus Brayshaw will be getting his first taste of competitive football despite playing in last week’s

    KANGAROO CAUGHT by Whispering Jack

    There was a fair amount of debate in our area as to whether the game warranted a full blown match report because it was felt that it was really an elevated version of a training session with match simulation but against a team in opposition colours. Although notionally the stronger side, North seemed to be using the occasion for the purpose of working on aspects of their game plan, one of the features of which seemed to be based on taking the longest possible route out of defence and good luck w
