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.

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 2020 EQUATION by Whispering Jack

    The 2020 equation is simple for the Melbourne Football Club – it must keep winning and it must take some big scalps during the second half of the season without dropping games against the lesser lights. The Demons have gone down this season to the 1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th teams on the ladder including twice by less than a goal in games that could easily have gone the other way. Against that, they have beaten 11th, 13th, 14th and 18th and though they thumped the Crows during the week, the

    THE TORRENS THUMPING by George on the Outer

    THE TORRENS THUMPING - LEAVING THE DEMONS BEHIND That headline might lead a reader to think that Melbourne had lost badly in Adelaide but no!  It was actually the MFC which left it’s demons from the previous week behind as it applied the blowtorch to the Crows in the final quarter of their match at the Adelaide Oval and went on their merry way to record a 51 point win before their biggest crowd of the year (even if they were mainly hostile). Much had been made in the media about t

    STATE OF DEESASTER by the Oracle

    Melbourne’s circus caravan rolls into Adelaide on Wednesday night, an event that will put shivers up the spine of every Crows’ supporter as they look directly into the face of disaster. The flakey Demons left their home town a month ago and proceeded to rough up the Gold Coast Suns and Hawthorn in Sydney before moving on to the sunny Queensland where they missed by a bee’s diaphragm against the more or less local second-on-ladder Brisbane Lions. Then, they had to butter up against the top t

    OVERPOWERED by George on the Outer

    In a dismal display against Port Adelaide, Melbourne showed it had learnt nothing from their previous week’s loss to Brisbane. Port, in contrast, after losing to St.Kilda, addressed their failings, and as a result made the Demons look like a second-rate side.  Melbourne failed to score a goal in the first quarter, and the first time it seriously troubled the goal umpire was saved until a minute before half-time.  Did it get any better?  No with their meagre three goals for the sec

    DESPERATION OF THE MOMENT by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s recent win against Hawthorn highlighted how important Max Gawn’s ruck domination is for the team. A week later however, that domination continued but its effect was totally blunted by the Brisbane Lions midfield and, as a consequence, what could have been an easy win over a leading AFL contender turned into a disappointing but close loss and a sense of desperation now looms over the club as the halfway mark of the season approaches. This week’s opponent in Port Adelaide also und

    THE FOUR POINT FAIL by George on the Outer

    Melbourne went down by 4 points in a thrilling finish against Brisbane, but they failed by more than the 4 points.     They also failed to score the 4 points necessary to keep them in the race for the finals, and now find themselves sitting 6 points outside the top 8, but effectively 2 games outside (even though they have a game in hand).   The Demons had more than enough opportunities to win.  Six very easy shots on goal failed to bother the goal umpire with a major and ultimate

    NORTH OF THE BORDER PART 2 by The Oracle

    The travelling COVID circus moves north of the border yet again and, unless at some time in the near future, Papua New Guinea opens its borders, this could be the last time this phenomenon happens. And as fortune would dictate, the resurgent Demons are walking directly into the sights of the locals from the bright lights of Brizvegas to Carrara - the scene of some long-forgotten (and deservedly so) battles with one of the Lions’ former incarnations, namely, the Brisbane Bears. But unli

    ON THE NOSE by George on the Outer

    One of the Hawthorn Football Club’s valued sponsors is Azep® Nasal Spray and given the thrashing handed out to the Hawks in today’s game, it would appear that they need a huge supply of the sponsor’s product because they are simply on the nose. This condition was caused by the sheer dominance of the Demons, led magnificently by skipper Max Gawn with 27 hitouts and 22 disposals including two clearances. Around him in the middle were Christian Petracca with 29 touches, Clayton Oliver (also on

    THE PREMIER LEAGUE by Whispering Jack

    So the new man under the pump is Clarko, which demonstrates how sad but predictable the football media is these days. In an age where each AFL team’s form can be topsy turvy and unpredictability is the order of the day, the coach of a team that has played five out of the top six teams from the previous season and sits with a 3/3 win loss record is this week’s whipping boy.   This comes admittedly on the back of a bad fortnight from the Hawks who in recent years have exhibited an enormous

    SUNSMART by George on the Outer

    If you don’t want to get sunburnt, you follow the Sunsmart rules.  Melbourne took the advice and with their season on the line, avoided getting burnt by the Gold Coast Suns, with a gripping 17 point win. It was a match that could have gone either way, with the sides within a kick of each other for all but the final minutes of the final quarter. Melbourne had stretched the lead earlier in the game to 18 points, but that quickly evaporated to a neck and neck race to the finish.  Finally,

    NORTH OF THE BORDER by The Oracle

    The outcomes of Melbourne’s recent games against the Gold Coast Suns are a pretty good barometer of how the teams are faring. The Demons easily accounted for them twice in 2018, the last win being a 96-point cakewalk at the MCG in Round 20 when they scored a whopping 21.17.143 to 7.5.47. Ironically, Melbourne’s score of 9.3.57 at the first break that afternoon is leading its highest score for a full game to date this year by 3 points. In those days, they played fast, skillful football, moved th

    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
