Round 1 Saturday March 20th 2021 Attendance



Recommended Posts

Just thought i would start this conversation, are there any hints as to how the tickets for the season will be allocated. I have a Redlegs membership and that comes with selected seats (not that I often sit in my correct seat). However if there is a 50% Capacity allowed, How do they decide who gets in?

If it's going to be 50% of capacity, I've half a mind to attend. *No jokes about only having half a mind, either!.

Really. I haven't seen a game live in 18 months, wild horses couldn't keep me away, I'm sure there will be plenty of others who feel the same

Surely Ticketmaster and Ticketek will waive their booking fees as a gesture of goodwill.

Not sure how it will work but I’m confident we wont have 50k at games 😅

Maybe not, but there a few hardy souls that cram into the Premium member area in the southern stand, can't have 10k in one section and nobody in the other half of the ground

I gave up my Redlegs membership a few years ago for a different membership, out of frustration that someone else would almost always be sitting in my reserved seat - now I know who the culprit was! 
Not sure how the seat allocations might go if there’s a larger crowd expected, but I assume premium members would be given priority. Beyond that, perhaps some sort of ballot.

You might be right, 53 days is way off and aaaanything could happen. But would be good to know the method of allocating seats, even if it is 25k would still like not to miss out

That's me I've had the same seats in the Olympic stand For years day there when they used to be red seats and the cheerssquad was there. Hopefully can sit there but, i guess I'll be happy just to be there

FWIW channel 7 reported last week that clubs are assuming and hoping it's 50%. They interviewed North's CEO who probably passed that info onto channel 7 news.

No doubt with border closures, they'll probably throw this fixture in the bin and we'll start the season hubbing in WA before moving onto Darwin, Cairns and then settling into SE Queensland for the rest of the year.

If 25K capacity,  the only people to miss out would be members that don't jump online in the first couple of days of sales.

I think the record crowd at the G for a Melbourne V Freo game is 27K in 2017.

Home games at the Gee no problem if we have 25 to 30 thousand paid up members turn up. Should have priority if it comes with a designated seat. 

If there is  50 to 60 thousand cap to the Richmond game and the Queens Birthday game against Collingwood we have them as our home games in 2021  lets see what sort of an outcome eventuates with the seating;  Interesting times ahead.

I would not worry DS. There will be lots of oldies like me that won't be tempting fate and not going. You will get in no trouble. You can have my spot for starters.

There will be at least 5 to 10 more seats than normal as WA Premier won't let the usual supporters leave the state to travel to see them.

There will be some areas not opened up depending upon the expected crowd 

remember you have to pre purchase tickets prior to turning up so can only purchase Tickets from those offered at the agency (ticketec or Ticketmaster)
 

Your scenario will be tested at games like The Round1 as with vs Vic  teams the Southern Stand would  normally be needed To fit the crowd in.

The Premium Area sounds Like a reserved seat aree whic could be smallish do no problem but as for opening up all the top tierr of the Southern Stand  I would forget it.

More of the sections would be available fir larger crowds but if 50,000 are allowed for each week the seating the same fir  each game Would most likely apply. Remember Covid distancing will be applied in some form.

In Brisbane some areas have had tickets Sold in twos with gaps of two or one.Later groups of up to six have been sold also at the Test match last week.

As long as you are speaking for yourself OD.  Not all oldies are ambivalent about attending like you.

Rest assured the plans for crowd numbers and style will have to be approved fir Covid health rules.

Any one is free to wear a mask to any game if they feel threatened.in any way also on the train or bus there.

Lets get as big a crowd as we can to start the season with a win urged on by a pro Dees loud and excited crowd to give the team a real boost.

I am in the kill zone 58er. The games will be a tv events for me till at least July. I would rather be alive. Happy for you to push the envelope. My membership is paid so the club will get the money wether I go or not.

    A WALK IN THE PAST by Whispering Jack

    On Monday night, the Melbourne Football Club handed out four life memberships. Two of those awards went to men who are long gone. Charles ‘Chubby’ Forrester and James ‘Jas’ Byrne played for the club in the 1870s, even before the Victorian Football Association was formed. The other two are current skipper Max Gawn and swingman Tom McDonald, who almost left the club at the end of the pandemic-affected 2020 season. Some fans might have raised their eyebrows and wondered whether the emphasis on hist

    SOUNDS OF SILENCE by Whispering Jack

    This was my first game for points involving the Demons in more than a year and a half and the long march to Carrara turned out to be worthwhile. The game was won in a single withering quarter that was dominated by Melbourne on the back of an outstanding display from Karen Paxman. The four-time All Australian picked up 13 touches for the stanza to set up a five goal to nothing second term after a lacklustre start in which the cleaner, sharper Gold Coast notched up the first two goals of the game

    BRIDESMAIDS AGAIN by Whispering Jack

    Historians of the future will have little difficulty in finding words to define the year 2020. “Covid-19”, “pandemic” and “plague” come readily to mind. The Covid-19 pandemic dominated the year in every aspect of life and it certainly didn’t spare AFL football or the Melbourne Football Club. In the circumstances however, it didn’t treat it as badly as the Spanish Flu epidemic which raged a century earlier from February 1918, through 1919 and into 1920 when it finally petered out in April of

    THE TASMANIAN TIGER by Whispering Jack

    I first saw Ben Brown on a cold Tuesday night in May, 2013 playing for the Werribee Tigers against Queanbeyan in a televised Foxtel Cup game before a sparse crowd at Etihad Stadium. His teammate and former Demon Jordan Gysberts was the star of the side’s 85-point belting of the hapless ACT club but the then 20 year old, 200cm Brown was also a stand out.  Earlier that year, the athletic big man had left his native Tasmania in an effort to make the grade after being overlooked in three drafts

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2020 by The Oracle

    Part One: The Cure It could be coincidental but since the AFL Free Agency and Trade Period began, the State of Victoria has recorded eight consecutive days of no new active cases and no deaths from Covid19. It might be a little early to announce that a cure for this dreaded virus has been discovered but one thing can be said with some certainty after following the ins and outs of the free agency and trading process — mankind is still a long way off finding a cure for boredom. That stat

    CHANGES 2020 by The Oracle

    Part One: A very strange year Things might have been somewhat hairy when the 1919 football season opened up in the wake of the ending of a world war and in the middle of a pandemic that took millions of lives but it’s difficult to imagine a more unusual football season than the one that ended a week or so ago. For starters, the footy is supposed to finish on that one day in September on the MCG in mild spring weather; not deep into October at the Gabba amid warnings of tropical storms and h

Mental Health facility run by the inmates.   E- The grade you get when you don’t make F- F- Finals. What are they? G- Goals. Lack of them. Need a forward who can kick them….lots! H- Hub. Where players got to live with people you can’t stand. I- Injuries. Miracle cure provided by Dr. Burgess.

    WASH, RINSE, SPIN, REPEAT! by George On The Outer

    Although the Demons got over the line in their must win final round game against the hapless Bombers, they ensured it was Groundhog Day for their supporters who well remember what happened three years ago (although, this time they at least enjoyed the success of victory). Melbourne had its customary start dominating play and having plenty of chances in front of goal, only to find itself down on the scoreboard at the first change. Inaccurate kicking, particularly from set shots would have pu

    THE LUCK OF THE DRAW by Whispering Jack

    The long awaited clash between Melbourne and Essendon is almost upon us. Thirty-seven rounds of AFL football have passed by since the two clubs met on a balmy early April night last year in a game that produced a high scoring shootout at the MCG with the Bombers prevailing by 18 points. It was their only meeting for 2019 and happened at a time when the pandemic was something on the far distant horizon. Several months later when the 2019 season ended, the AFL issued the first of its fixtures

    THERE’S STILL A HEARTBEAT by George on the Outer

    When bottom side Adelaide scrapped together a win over the Giants last week, a tiny glimmer of hope opened up for the Demons’ finals chances. The patient was in intensive care but not quite finished — there was a faint pulse, a heart beating ever so slightly but was it enough when two more wins and other results were needed to fall their way? The first step was the resuscitation of a team that had lost its last two matches against sides then sitting fifteenth and sixteenth on the ladder. On

    THE FINAL HUMILIATION by The Oracle

    On Sunday, the Melbourne Football Club that won three consecutive games by in excess of 50 points last month returns to the Gabba, the scene of the last of those victories which was a 56 point drubbing of Collingwood. The Demons got off to a good start and won every quarter with a ruthless and powerful brand of football. They kicked 16 goals that day, their accuracy in front of goal a tribute to the skills the put on display throughout the afternoon and evening. In the four matches playe

    GIVEN THE OLD HEAVE HO’ by George on the Outer

    Fremantle gave Melbourne the old heave ho’ from playing finals in 2020, in conditions that the Demons yet again failed to handle.   With the whole season on the line and the need to win to stay in contention for finals, what the fans saw was much the same as they have been witnessing so many times before — a complete debacle and capitulation against a side that sat 15th on the ladder before the game.     Promises made after the loss to the 16th placed Sydney Swans were rendered h
