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.

It is winter. Just saying.

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 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

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.

Do you wear your dees scarf to a restaurant for a night out in winter? 

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.

    THE YEAR THE SNOWFLAKES FELL by Whispering Jack

    The snow that fell on the slopes of Victoria’s mountain districts in the winter of 1965 was not considered good enough to satisfy the enthusiasts. The really heavy snow that season came in two waves further north in July and August. The first descended on the national capital where “Pig Iron Bob” still held sway. Snow flurries touched the landscape all the way across the Blue Mountains. The next big snow extended further north up to the hills around Mackay in Queensland. Snowflakes fell inside t

    DEES GIVE DOGS A BONE by George On The Outer

    First place versus second on the ladder promised to be a precursor to what can be expected in the coming finals race.  However, it was the Demons who faltered and gave the Bulldogs a bone to feed their hunger just weeks out from the end of the season. The win also sent the Dogs to the top of the ladder, a position they are unlikely to cede in the coming weeks, given their fixture. While Melbourne may now struggle to keep a spot in the top four with its draw and will likely depend on the res

    THE WORM WILL TURN by The Oracle

    When I was asked to preview this game, I wasn’t sure whether it was going to be played in Darwin, on the Gold Coast or the MCG. I had no idea as to the identity of Melbourne’s opponent. This would have made for one hell of an interesting match preview so I’m glad that the AFL managed to reorganize its fixture to enable a game … any game at all … to proceed in Round 19. We’ll worry about the Gold Coast Suns or whoever they put us up against when the weekend’s done and dusted and if and when

    DRAWN AND DEEFLATED by George on the Outer

    1st v 17th ... it would seem a sure one way contest between the Hawks and the Demons but it was not to be with the game finishing in a draw, the only positive being the Demons still retain their top spot on the ladder. Melbourne was taught a football lesson by Al Clarkson, who with limited resources, just instructed his players to scrap, fight and surge the ball forward.  It stifled the Melbourne free flowing style of play and denied them the opportunities they could normally expect.

    PINK RAIN by Whispering Jack

    There is no certainty about life under a pandemic. You wake up one morning without a care in the world; the sun’s shining and it’s a beautiful day. An hour later, everything’s up in the air, the entire state is on high alert and the apartment complex next door’s in lockdown. The simple decision you had to make about buying a ticket to the footy at the weekend suddenly might get put on the back burner. There are other things in life to prioritise and on top of that, they’re predicting rain for th

    COR BLIMEY by KC from Casey

    In years to come, the old timers will talk in wonderment about the “Avalon Avalanche” that hit Werribee’s Avalon Airport Oval on a mild winter’s afternoon at about ten minutes after the halfway mark of the game between the local Tigers and their cross town rivals, the Demons from Casey. At that moment in time, the game was poised as if on a knifepoint. Up until the main interval, it had been the visiting team which had maintained the lead from the start but it had struggled to entirely asse

    POWER FAILURE by George on the Outer

    South Australians should be well familiar with the damage that storms can do to the power supply.  But Port Power forgot those lessons on Thursday night football as they watched the Melbourne storm descend upon them from across the border and ruin their hopes of a top four placing. Just as equally, the win to the Demons cemented their spot in the top two and sent out the message that a team who had been going around in circles for the past couple of weeks, has in fact, turned into a cyclone

    CASEY SUFFER FIRST DEFEAT IN TWO YEARS

    The circumstances were a little unusual last Saturday night as KC from Casey was unavailable to report on the Casey Dees due to work commitments. On the ground things were somewhat unusual as well given that, although there was a game to be won on the night, preparations were also being made for the forthcoming Thursday night clash against Port Adelaide with Ben Brown rested for large slabs of the evening. It turned out perhaps, to be a stroke of genius for Melbourne with Brown making a strong c

    WEATHERING THE STORM by Mel Rundle

    The magic of Melbourne’s magnificent start to 2021 is beginning to wear off. In its past six matches it lost to three teams that were outside the eight, out of form —  teams which it had very little trouble bearing last year. This week, the temperature is turned up even higher with the hard fought spot in the top four at risk. The really ominous factor about the Demons’ upcoming Thursday night meeting with Port Adelaide this week is that it is due to take place at the very place where its dec

    FEE-FI-FO-FUM by George on the Outer

    “Fee-fi-fo-fum, without a Full Forward the Premiership can’t be won!” So said the GWS Giants, as they exposed Melbourne’s fatal deficiency with a nine point win at the MCG.  In past weeks Melbourne has been barely able to gloss over the lack of a serious target in front of goal, while others were able to contribute.  But in a near repeat of the game from the previous week, players running up the ground simply had no-one to kick the ball to, when all that was needed was that one tall target.

    MUCH ADO ABOUT EVERYTHING by Whispering Jack

    Let's face it. We Melbourne supporters are a demanding lot. Here we are with our team on top of the ladder with a record of 12 wins and 2 losses, a decent percentage and a fair run home for a team with finals credentials. We have a fit list with lots of in form players, many of who are in contention for All Australian and other high honours, the team’s playing with purpose and cohesion and its VFL affiliate is undefeated and going gangbusters.  Still, we're all walking around with conc

    HIATUS by KC from Casey

    After their five week Covid19 lockdown hiatus, the Casey Demons were fairly scratchy against Essendon VFL for the best part of 2½ quarters on Sunday afternoon but they finally settled down to motor away to a 48 point victory. With 20 AFL affiliated players on the team sheet, the Casey line up looked the strongest team ever put together since linking up with the Demons but the team struggled to score in the early going and managed its first goal to Aaron vandenBerg late in the first term.
