Just noticed Andrews has promised $6mill to redevelop Box Hill City oval.

I love the old ground but another $6 mill to the Hawks seems a bit much.

This is a club that was late to the party and not a bit interested in the women's game but reaps the rewards now.

Must be trying to win/save votes.

I just learned that our president is part of the Wyndham Council and she is also working on the project for the new stadium for the Western United (A-League). 

Should this be an indication that something will definitely happen under her tenure at the MFC?

LinkedIn suggests that our President is CEO - Melbourne Sports Centres (MSAC) - Full Time.

I would think that WU will get money before the MFC in fact will probably have it built before the MFC. The reason is not only money but the location. WU are not trying to build 5 minutes from the G. There are lots of locations in the west available.

I say we drain the Yarra and put our training ground there. Fat lot of good it does the way it is at the moment. The majority of residents with property looking onto the Yarra in South Yarra and Toorak are probably Dees supporters anyway, so there’d be little if any fuss.

Definitely one of the more innovative suggestions.. we could simply put it into a big underground drain for a kilometre or so

If there were ever any doubts that there are no votes in the MFC it has been proven beyond doubt. The two areas where Labor lost votes  is in the west and to the greens in the inner suburbs. From that we can bet there will be plenty spent in the west. Just watch the WU new stadium fly. And green space in inner Melbourne for a MFC home will not fly. It's is time the board looked seriously at alternatives to the G proximity plan if they want something this decade.

Unfortunately can’t see a footy ground or training facility at this proposed development over the rail yards near Fed Square by Matthew Guy.

Disappointed to see the development isn't billions of dollars of car parks, but I guess carparks near train stations in local electoratea is a federal government responsibility.

OD, I would think that the votes for providing the MFC with a home in the MCG precinct would translate into votes in the Inner South. The major parties are not likely to win inner city seats in the future but I would think Labor would have picked up votes in the Inner South if they had pledged a home for the MFC in the MCG precinct without losing anything in the city.

IMO that would be  negated by people not wanting to lose green space. The MFC lost out when we turned down Olympic Park. Trying to get something now is extremely difficult if not impossible.

    GRAND NEW FLAG by Meggs

    Daisy was at pains to tell everyone who asked that the grand final story was NOT the Daisy Pearce story.  She wanted people to focus on the Melbourne Football Club, our wonderful players and non-playing teammates, her legacy buddy head coach Mick Stinear, the assistant coaches, the Club volunteers, the Board, the administrators, #DeeArmy, all supporters, in fact anyone who bleeds for the red and the blue.  But it is also a bit about the pioneer, role model, mother who is Daisy Pearce

    EYES ON THE PRIZE by Meggs

    The Stinear/Pearce partnership has evolved over the 7 AFLW seasons and they have built a team with talented, committed footballers who play for each other and execute a highly entertaining brand of footy. On Sunday can a premiership be added to this legacy? This may well be the last time we see Daisy in the mighty red and blue as she contemplates her start date for a coaching role ‘Down at Kardinia Park’.  Last week’s sensational sealer in the Prelim showed everybody that Daisy could s

    DAISY’S DEMON DRIVE by Meggs

    On a blustery Saturday afternoon when the conditions affected marking skills and the ball bounced unpredictably, the Mighty Dees stuck fat against a determined Kangaroos outfit to break away with two final quarter goals to none to win AFLW Preliminary Final 2 by 17 points — an all-time high winning margin between these two teams.  From the outset it was a fiercely fought contest with Melbourne unable to find the ball in space. North really amped up their one-percenters an

    NOT A MOMENT TO MISS by Meggs

    The AFLW Season 7 fixture was carefully crafted to purposely handicap the better teams and give the expansion and developing sides an easier draw.  Nonetheless, this weekend’s Preliminary Finals will showcase the Lions, Demons, Crows and Roos, teams widely accepted as the best 4 in the competition.   In Friday night’s Prelim 1 the minor premiers, Brisbane, will start warm favourites at home against Adelaide.   On Saturday afternoon at Ikon Park, Prelim 2 between Melbourne and North is

    STICK TO YOUR GUNS by Meggs

    The Dees convincingly overcome the fast-starting reigning-premiers Adelaide to win by 21 points in a fiery Qualifying Final match at Ikon Park on Friday evening.     In that first quarter Adelaide jumped out of the blocks kicking their first goal inside 20 seconds finishing with 3 goals to nil. All was quiet at Ikon Park.     Melbourne, having easily outplayed lesser opponents over the past six weeks took time to ratchet up their intensity.  But, by mid to late first quarter, the Dees be

    HEAVYWEIGHTS by Meggs

    AFLW heavyweights Melbourne and Adelaide kick off the AFLW Season 7 Final Series with a massive Qualifying Final clash at Ikon Park this Friday night at 7:10pm.  The game promises to be a cracker.   Last season’s Grand Final combatants last met in Round 1where Melbourne came away with a strong 18-point victory at Glenelg Oval. The Dees will be hoping to replicate the result and move directly to the Preliminary Final.    While Adelaide may not have been as intimidating this season as in p

    MISSED IT BY THAT MUCH by Meggs

    Congratulations to Daisy’s Dees on a huge 78-point one-sided win against West Coast in challenging windy and wet conditions at Casey Fields.     The banner celebrating Sarah Lampard’s 50 games was a victim of the wind, but nonetheless Lampy received a warm round of applause from the parochial crowd in attendance.   Melbourne has the double-chance and is excited about its chances in the Season 7 AFLW finals. If this means the Grand Final is played at Metricon and the Demond make it, then

    LIVE IN THE MOMENT by Meggs

    The final home and away match of Season 7, sees the mighty Dees at Fortress Casey hosting the 16th placed West Coast.     A win assures the Dees of a Top-2 finish, with the ultimate placings dependent upon the previous night’s result between Brisbane and Collingwood and the relative percentages.   As our match is anticipated to be one-sided, interest may turn to monitoring the live ladder to see whether or not Melbourne has secured the minor premiership.     The Demons (Lions and Cro

    BOMBED by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne has all but assured itself of a top two finish to the (second) 2022 AFLW season after crushing Essendon by 41 points on Sunday. It now holds a four point lead over third placed Adelaide along with a handy percentage advantage with one round remaining before the finals. The Demons opened kicking with the advantage of the squally wind that often prevails at Casey Fields and for the third week in a row, they kept their opponents scoreless in the opening term.
