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.

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.

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

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

    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

    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.

    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?

    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.

    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

    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.

    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
