2020 Melbourne Membership Packs

Recommended Posts

I got my pack in WA on Monday. Pleased that it was free of useless junk. As for the scarf I have concerns that if we bomb out of the finals race by round 6 it might be a danger in the hands of depressed supporters. A baseball cap or beanie  would have been a wiser gift.

Got my ankle biter's today. Full of plastic crap that will go unused. Another rubbish backpack and toy footy. Reminds me of the primary school 30cm ruler collection at home.

My only gripe is how small the backpack is, I’ve had to cut the legs and arms of his favourite Dees teddy just so I can fit it in the backpack. Not sure if he had tears of joy or not streaming down his face as I put the scissors away.

Do we still get our car sticker, with our memberships?

I didn’t get any stickers this year. Can’t understand why as these are advertising for the club and I have a new sticker less car as well.

As per normal, my membership pack on my dedicated Demon payment plan failed to reach WA prior to Christmas. 
Every [censored] year. 

I work for a rather large online distribution centre and we had to stop sending with Aus Post. They were so far behind, some items we sent out on the 2nd of December still hadn't made it to their destination in QLD and WA by the 23rd.

I'm surprised how few on here seem to have opted for digital! Surely this would save the club a fair bit of coin. 

In saying that my digital membership hasn't arrived and I've been on direct debit for about 10 plus years.

Any other digital opters received theirs? 

Because the chances of it working smoothly for every game are almost nil.
Especially if you're trying to get young kids through the gates at the same time

JAG!!! No way I am driving a jag, apologies to Youngwilliam but I am talking about a real car that needs an MFC sticker.

That car is too nice for a MFC sticker Earl.

You need a rust bucket like Biffen's for stickers. His is literally held together by them!

Hi there HB. After reading this thread I've just this minute gone onto the club app on my phone and activated my tridents membership ticket. When tapping on each home game it says "ticket will be ready in xx days" and has a countdown to the day of that match so I'm assuming that the "ticket" will only appear on the day of that game. Curiously however the compensation game against Hawthorn in round 11 (for playing in Alice Springs) says there is no ticket available. Likewise there is no mention of any away games in Melbourne which my ticket should include. 

Hopefully the club or ticketmaster haven't ballsed this up but I'll have to wait until after the new year before I can contact the club about it.

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

I thought you would have a ritualistic burning eaxh year,  a Melbourne scaef suttee, after all it has been hanging around your neck long enough with little effect.

I renewed on the 8th December and was told at the time that they had finished their pre-Christmas mail-outs so I don't think there's cause for concern.

A comment about the "choose the $25 Demon shop option instead of the scarf", a friend of mine did that last year, then went to the shop choose some minor items, badge, stickers, cup etc and handed her $25 voucher and was told she couldn't use it because the $25 could only come off 1 item of $25 or more. 

She put all the little stuff  BACK and walked out.

That's terrible to hear. 

Shocking if this is the case.

For anyone with a home and away game digital membership that is interested, I spoke to the club this week and they have advised that all of the away matches we play in Melbourne will be uploaded to the app at a later date. Probably by the end of January. The compensation home game (for playing up in the Alice) has yet to be negotiated and there are three or four clubs we are currently still in discussions with about this. Once confirmed this will also be added to the digital membership along with those away games. Same goes for the pre season game at Casey Fields.

Does anyone here know what the club gives up, or provides to other clubs as compensation for playing in AS?

(Hopefully not a ritualistic spanking or similar.) Serious replies preferred.

Other than home ground advantage I don't think we'd be giving anything up nor the competing team gaining anything. To the best of my knowledge we've only ever played WA or SA sides there so they are travelling anyway and get to play on a dry ground in warm conditions instead of Melbourne in the middle of winter. They (and we) also get featured in a prime time free to air game.

Sorry, RDN but you misunderstood my question. I am wondering what if anything we give to the home club in our Melbourne 'return game' in order for our members to have free entry because they can't get to the AS game?

After all whoever the 'return game' home team is, say this year it's Hawthorn, they are losing when our members are given free entry to their home game. What does Melbourne do to compensate the Hawks in that case?

Ah, I see what you mean now PM. Not sure. Perhaps it's an agreement to repay the favour at some point. As Hawthorn also play 'home' games in Launceston that would make sense. To counteract that theory however we've recently played Carlton at the G in this game who have no need to compensate their own fans so it's an interesting question. The Blues seem keen to move home games from Docklands to Jolimont where possible so perhaps the AFL got involved and said you can play Melbourne there as your home game as long as MFC fans gain free entry. Overall it might still be a better deal for them financially all things considered.

    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

    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
