2020 Melbourne Membership Packs

Recommended Posts

Bare bones Membership came in the mail today. Cut backs because of 2019. I will return to full Membership/MCC once the club shows some serious fight...

I did the Digital thing - already have a million scarves and not losing the membership card with it on my phone.

Unless your battery runs out or you lose your phone. 🤪

My membership was waiting when I returned to The Manor this evening.

I see what @Lucifer's Hero meant by shrinking contents.

Not only was the calendar AWOL but also the plastic pocket to keep my card in was  nowhere to be found.

Now that is tight !!!!!!

Interesting LH that the MFC may well have the oldest membership base so a move to digital may well annoy a higher percentage of members than a lot of other clubs. The only things I will miss is the calendar and the membership card. I am not into digital entry on my phone. But as they say "there is nothing more constant than change" 

Agreed. This digital business is way too technical for me.

Should be just the card and a letter.

The rest is just rubbish IMO.

A rather cynical view there Mr Shadow.

Indeed od.

Got mine today. Happy with the pared back contents. Don't need the magnet fixture. Hopefully next year they get rid of that 

However, the most disturbing part is that I could not get a seat away from @Bitter but optimistic, so will have to put up with his slobbering, foul mouthed rants again in 2020

My scarf always ends up in the bin. It survived until round three last season.

Is that tongue-in-cheek? 

If not, tick one of the other options instead of the scarf: $25 Demon Shop voucher or Donate it back to the club.

I get it back out after I’ve cooled down.

I chose the hard card option this year for both my son (5 yo) and myself. Felt there was something special about a dad and his son getting all decked out in our Demons gear, membership card around our neck, scanning it as we walk in to the MCG.

We do live in a digital world, but because I chose the sentimental option, we miss out on the couple of free tickets (which would've covered my non-Demon daughter and wife for the one or two trips to the 'G as a family. Fortunately I can cover their entry, but I'm sure some struggle.

"Slobbering, foul mouthed rants" that's a valuable ability to have and will provide a distraction in the 10 minute break at half time.

Does anyone know if the international digital membership includes live streaming or you have to buy the add on? Looking at my options with an overseas posting this next year.

I called the membership department re the loss of the 2 free tickets option as I have Collingwood supporting family and we go to those games.  They offered to have 2 available for us at the time.  So if you choose a game I would think the club will make them available for your family.

Just can't see what the club achieved by removing the option.  It is not as if our Home games are filled to capacity.  The free passes are GA only so we still need to buy reserved seats or pay for their entry to the Redlegs guest area.

...if anything it makes it harder to invite a friend (and potential demon fan/member) to a game they wouldn't otherwise go to.

There was also no larger plastic ziplock bag holding all the contents together. Instead, the membership package came in a cardboard envelope that opened up into a letter. I have made good use of the ziplock bag in the past, but must admit that reducing the total amount of plastic being used is a good idea.

Much cheaper packaging, Only one sticker and not even a raincoat for the membership card. So who is our replacement home game against. Used to have that on the card as well?

I was thinking they've cut down significantly on the use of plastic in the packaging, which I applaud.

No plastic sleeve or envelop, which is great as neither are necessary and are just single use plastic crap contributing to more and more landfill. Most people would have about 8 of those plastic card sleeves they can re-use anyway.

    THE YEAR THE SKY FELL by The Oracle

    After a number of years of linear movement up the ladder, the Melbourne Football Club unexpectedly went into serious decline in 2019, slumping from fourth to 17th in a season that coach Simon Goodwin described “a complete wipe-out”. Those around the club who tried to analyse the apocalyptic events that unfolded during the year were hard pressed to find a single reason for the debacle but the most plausible explanation was that the club’s troubles stemmed from a lack of fitness and injuries that

    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

    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
