Every member is solid gold for the survival of the club. (appreciate that many are losing their jobs and can't afford to continue)

Very proud of our supporters.

So at this stage we are 10k members down on this time last year.

I know we couldnt have predicted it, but last year was the worst season possible to have a shocker.

Lucky to be where we are tbh

I know we could never in a million years have predicted this happening but we quite literally couldn't afford last year happening the way it did. Make finals and we have 50k members before January. Some here treated last year as an aberration. It may have been. But good clubs just don't let it happen. And now we are feeling it.

That, and to play our only game so far EXACTLY the same way we did all last year.... Bomb long to nobody.

Extremely small sample size, but the only evidence we have is that MFC havent learned a thing.

Like i said, we are lucky to have only suffered a 10k drop in membership.

The drop off is because there are about 30000 rusted on members, the rest wait for results and then get on the bandwagon, if it is rolling forward

In relation to Gawny's letter, the player phone calls to Members, the Club correspondence and now, player-selected free music preferences online, the Club is doing well with regard to the 'rusted-on' Members. Many people are 'chuffed' that they bothered and did so at the personal level. My wife's adoration of Nev has now reached fever-pitch, for example. (He was just her favourite player once.)

I had real trouble trying on line a couple of weeks ago so in hope I phoned the club and got through to membership: so they are there just waiting to hear from you (and you and you and you also)!

Any updates to the tally? I recently purchased four extra armchair memberships in an attempt to assist the club. The reasons are obvious as to why we’ve dropped so far from last year but seeing just how much, it’s still hard to swallow.

It varies from day to day on the main page or not, but it is always at the menu to the top right next to the query icon, under the Jaguar symbol.  Since the AFL run the web page, it is the same for all clubs...pathetic!

Anyhow we have had another 220 people sign up this week, which brings the total to 38,985

When is the cutoff this year? I'm thinking of buying an additional membership to try and get us up to 40k

31 July has been the traditional cut off point for recording the memberships for all the clubs, but each club will then report higher numbers in their annual report i.e. generally up to end Ocotober. 

So in the table above you can see both numbers that we have kept track of over the years....

It’s a good question. After our disastrous 2019 season I know quite a few disgruntled supporters who were waiting to see how we went early on before re-signing. Fair to say we didn’t set the world on fire and it’s reflected in our membership numbers. Hopefully we can win a few more games and get some more supporters to jump on the wagon.

I emailed the club and i recieved an automated msg back stating someone from the club will be in contact in 3-5 working days.

Are interstate members still guaranteed a ticket to 1 interstate game e.g game against the Crows on the 5th of August?

If our loss to the Swans costs us a place in the finals ( and it likely will ) then I reckon our 2021 membership could take a nasty whack!

Footy back in Victoria and the ability to attend might mitigate this to some extent but , that is a big unknown at this stage

Possible disaster warning!!

    A WALK IN THE PAST by Whispering Jack

    On Monday night, the Melbourne Football Club handed out four life memberships. Two of those awards went to men who are long gone. Charles ‘Chubby’ Forrester and James ‘Jas’ Byrne played for the club in the 1870s, even before the Victorian Football Association was formed. The other two are current skipper Max Gawn and swingman Tom McDonald, who almost left the club at the end of the pandemic-affected 2020 season. Some fans might have raised their eyebrows and wondered whether the emphasis on hist

    SOUNDS OF SILENCE by Whispering Jack

    This was my first game for points involving the Demons in more than a year and a half and the long march to Carrara turned out to be worthwhile. The game was won in a single withering quarter that was dominated by Melbourne on the back of an outstanding display from Karen Paxman. The four-time All Australian picked up 13 touches for the stanza to set up a five goal to nothing second term after a lacklustre start in which the cleaner, sharper Gold Coast notched up the first two goals of the game

    BRIDESMAIDS AGAIN by Whispering Jack

    Historians of the future will have little difficulty in finding words to define the year 2020. “Covid-19”, “pandemic” and “plague” come readily to mind. The Covid-19 pandemic dominated the year in every aspect of life and it certainly didn’t spare AFL football or the Melbourne Football Club. In the circumstances however, it didn’t treat it as badly as the Spanish Flu epidemic which raged a century earlier from February 1918, through 1919 and into 1920 when it finally petered out in April of

    THE TASMANIAN TIGER by Whispering Jack

    I first saw Ben Brown on a cold Tuesday night in May, 2013 playing for the Werribee Tigers against Queanbeyan in a televised Foxtel Cup game before a sparse crowd at Etihad Stadium. His teammate and former Demon Jordan Gysberts was the star of the side’s 85-point belting of the hapless ACT club but the then 20 year old, 200cm Brown was also a stand out.  Earlier that year, the athletic big man had left his native Tasmania in an effort to make the grade after being overlooked in three drafts

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2020 by The Oracle

    Part One: The Cure It could be coincidental but since the AFL Free Agency and Trade Period began, the State of Victoria has recorded eight consecutive days of no new active cases and no deaths from Covid19. It might be a little early to announce that a cure for this dreaded virus has been discovered but one thing can be said with some certainty after following the ins and outs of the free agency and trading process — mankind is still a long way off finding a cure for boredom.

    CHANGES 2020 by The Oracle

    Part One: A very strange year Things might have been somewhat hairy when the 1919 football season opened up in the wake of the ending of a world war and in the middle of a pandemic that took millions of lives but it’s difficult to imagine a more unusual football season than the one that ended a week or so ago. For starters, the footy is supposed to finish on that one day in September on the MCG in mild spring weather; not deep into October at the Gabba amid warnings of tropical storms and h

    WASH, RINSE, SPIN, REPEAT! by George On The Outer

    Although the Demons got over the line in their must win final round game against the hapless Bombers, they ensured it was Groundhog Day for their supporters who well remember what happened three years ago (although, this time they at least enjoyed the success of victory). Melbourne had its customary start dominating play and having plenty of chances in front of goal, only to find itself down on the scoreboard at the first change. Inaccurate kicking, particularly from set shots would have pu

    THE LUCK OF THE DRAW by Whispering Jack

    The long awaited clash between Melbourne and Essendon is almost upon us. Thirty-seven rounds of AFL football have passed by since the two clubs met on a balmy early April night last year in a game that produced a high scoring shootout at the MCG with the Bombers prevailing by 18 points. It was their only meeting for 2019 and happened at a time when the pandemic was something on the far distant horizon. Several months later when the 2019 season ended, the AFL issued the first of its fixtures

    THERE’S STILL A HEARTBEAT by George on the Outer

    When bottom side Adelaide scrapped together a win over the Giants last week, a tiny glimmer of hope opened up for the Demons’ finals chances. The patient was in intensive care but not quite finished — there was a faint pulse, a heart beating ever so slightly but was it enough when two more wins and other results were needed to fall their way? The first step was the resuscitation of a team that had lost its last two matches against sides then sitting fifteenth and sixteenth on the ladder. On

    THE FINAL HUMILIATION by The Oracle

    On Sunday, the Melbourne Football Club that won three consecutive games by in excess of 50 points last month returns to the Gabba, the scene of the last of those victories which was a 56 point drubbing of Collingwood. The Demons got off to a good start and won every quarter with a ruthless and powerful brand of football. They kicked 16 goals that day, their accuracy in front of goal a tribute to the skills the put on display throughout the afternoon and evening. In the four matches playe

    GIVEN THE OLD HEAVE HO’ by George on the Outer

    Fremantle gave Melbourne the old heave ho’ from playing finals in 2020, in conditions that the Demons yet again failed to handle.   With the whole season on the line and the need to win to stay in contention for finals, what the fans saw was much the same as they have been witnessing so many times before — a complete debacle and capitulation against a side that sat 15th on the ladder before the game.     Promises made after the loss to the 16th placed Sydney Swans were rendered h
