Might go down the soft propaganda route and give mine to someone that's never been to a game of football and has no current allegiance to any team. Softly softly catchee monkey.

A way of getting potential customers in Jaguar dealers. Might go to one for a sticky. I closed the Holden dealer a few months back could be the kiss of death for Jaguar! I wonder how many will actually bother to get the scarf. It is not as though you can use it.

Send it to  Barack Obama.  It couldn't hurt.

If he ever visits Melbourne,  he might drop by.?    A  coup-Dee-gras.

That would certainly be a classy addition to our football brethren but if I were to send it to a political figure that I admire it would probably have to be Nicola Sturgeon 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

I bought a few extra memberships to support the club so I have eight scarves on the way. A few will end up stuck to cars displaying West Coast bumper stickers.

She's our First Minister and arguably the only competent politician in the UK currently. Not that many people would argue mind. Barack would be next in line but his allegiance is to the Chicago White Sox I think and he also prefers to shoot hoops in his free time.

If we had won that day then yes. It's red and blue. If I was a freo fan back when they had purple green and red then probably not.

Probably an age thing, I wear one to the game then back in the closet till the next game. I actually wear older ones than the last few years as the  models of recent years have got smaller and I prefer the bigger ones of years gone by. I think the 2019 scarf is still in its plastic bag. Would I wear one away from a game? Never the only exception would be after a GF victory.

A lot of members must be getting scarfs as all spots at the Jaguar dealers are filled. Only spot left is the mcg gate 3

Well that seals it I won’t be getting the 2020 version. Anyone know what colour red they have used this year. And will get a scarf made in Melbourne next year? Oh I forgot we sold the machines to China.

I also didn't get the email.  I contacted the club and they have confirmed it wasn't sent to me at least, but they said it was a problem at the AFL end....either software or email lists.....

At least they are looking at it.  Thank goodness for Demonland

I wouldn't mind someone explaining what this actually means. My initial interpretation is that the AFL appears to be administering the club's relationship with its members. I'm not sure that's a good idea, although perhaps it's one way to reduce the club's costs.

I suspect you are right about cost reductions.  It took the club a couple of days to respond, citing a reduced number of admin staff at the club, so having certain functions "outsourced" to the AFL may have happened. 

Another example is the membership tally which has only been updated twice in the past 3 weeks...again probably now done at AFL HQ after getting the data from Ticketmaster...

Went to the 'G for my pick up. Four key rings included - Viney, Gawn, Harmes, Brayshaw caricatures - per member was a neat touch HOWEVER, the club missed an opportunity.

Since the pick up was at Gate 3 there should have been a merchandise stand as well or at least a sign directing people to the demonshop near Gate 7  which was open but (when I was there) deserted!

There was nothing to tell members the shop was open or to display what was available a few hundred meters away. And no sign on the door of the shop that it was even open. Management needs to be more assertive, even pushier, to move those merchandise sales.

    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

    SOUTH OF THE BORDER by the Oracle

    Thankfully they moved this week’s game from Sydney where the sun shines and the virus breeds ever so slowly and almost nobody returns a positive test. The change of fixture comes at precisely the right time to allow everyone in town to head to the MCG on Sunday at around 3:30pm, not to catch up with what’s going on inside the ground but rather, to do what’s fashionable for woke folk in 2020 — pulling down statues. It’s time for Kevin Bartlett and Leigh Matthews to go but you can’t touch Norm Smi

    LESSONS IN LOSING by George on the Outer

    Turn up for the game and look like you want to win it.  Melbourne lost this game to Geelong, a game after a couple of extended breaks, looking like they were at the end of a 22 game season. Right from the start there was a lack of intensity across the board, as the Demons played exactly the type of game that the ageing Geelong list wanted. Geelong repeatedly played possession footy, to avoid having to run those ageing legs, something that Melbourne failed to exploit.  To use the oft quot

    QUARRANTINO by Whispering Jack

    At a little after 4.00pm last Saturday, the MCG ceased to be the centre of the AFL universe. That was when the AFL’s el supremo Gil McLaughlin announced that the Bombers’ Conor McKenna had returned a COVID-19 positive result and declared that the game set for the following day between Essendon and Melbourne was postponed.  What followed was truly the stuff of a pulp fiction novel. We witnessed a suitcase load of mental gymnastics and spin calculated to let McKenna (and the Essendon Football

    WHADDA WE SING? by Whispering Jack

    When the Melbourne team sang “The Grand Old Flag” last Saturday at Marvel Stadium in the absence of skipper Max Gawn, Ed Langford and Adam Tomlinson who were first time winners at their new club and Jayden Hunt, the leading goal kicker of the day it was passed off as an honest mistake. Taken in isolation, it most probably was accidental but the problem is that little accidents have been happening far too often in the club’s recent history and, in this case, it was symptomatic not only of a day t

    A POINT OF DIFFERENCE by George on the Outer

    It was Melbourne v Carlton at the comics stadium; a game between 16 and 17 in 2019. How could anyone pick a winner?  There had to be a point of difference, and so it would prove to be as the Demons literally fell over the line at the end, by a solitary point. In an almost complete replica of the Richmond v Collingwood game two nights previously, one of the sides (Melbourne in this case) rushed out to a five goal lead in the first quarter, while the Blues failed to bother the goal umpir

    EXPOSED FORM by The Oracle

    Carlton fancies itself to beat Melbourne at Marvel Stadium on Saturday and, based on exposed form, why not? The Blues took it right up to the reigning premiers in their last up start and the Demons were simply horrible against the Eagles at Optus Stadium. That opening game of the season revived all of the nightmares of 2019 for a team that went inside the 50 metre arc 45 times, an advantage of 10 times over the home side and yet lost by almost five goals. Such statistics sum it up for a gam

    SOCIAL DISTANCING by George on the Outer

    It was good to see the MFC players practicing the directives about social distancing at the game against West Coast.  Pity was that they continued to do so after the first bounce of the ball, as they allowed numerous WCE players run around un-hindered, with not a Melbourne player within 1.5 metres of them! They then found themselves looking at nearly a 5 goal deficit at the first break, which was to be essentially the final margin for the game. It is difficult to judge exactly what is going

    BEST IN SHOW by Whispering Jack

    I am writing this knowing that the AFL has deemed that the opening round of competition will proceed but fully believing that it should not.  The world is going through cataclysmic change as a result of the overwhelming spread of the Covid-19 virus and I agree that a distraction like sport would be good for the public. However, while the physical threat to the population is bad enough, there are other  issues to be addressed including the mental health of the community and the effects on th

    TASSIE DEVILS by Van Demon

    If you were looking for something new from the Demons that wasn’t there last year, you didn’t have to look further than the perfectly trimmed grass surface of UTAS Stadium last night as the team steamrolled the Hawks to record a comprehensive 32-point victory to complete their Marsh Community Series commitments for 2020. One new thing was the fact that for the second Marsh game in a row, the team finished full of running and they dominated the second half without the presence or the dominan

    SOUTH OF THE BORDER by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons will go into their final Marsh Series match with a strong lineup against the Hawks in Tasmania. Both Max Gawn and Steven May, who were recovering from injuries in first Marsh Series match, have both been named. It is unclear whether Max will be on restricted minutes and will likely get breaks in the ruck with Sam Weideman and rookie Luke Jackson getting their turns in the middle. Angus Brayshaw will be getting his first taste of competitive football despite playing in last week’s

    KANGAROO CAUGHT by Whispering Jack

    There was a fair amount of debate in our area as to whether the game warranted a full blown match report because it was felt that it was really an elevated version of a training session with match simulation but against a team in opposition colours. Although notionally the stronger side, North seemed to be using the occasion for the purpose of working on aspects of their game plan, one of the features of which seemed to be based on taking the longest possible route out of defence and good luck w
