Survey: Are you going to the G?

Recommended Posts

Late yesterday I received an email from the MFC re going to the G for games. As I have said here previously I won't be going this year. Well until July at the earliest. Interesting that it hit not 24 hours before the lock down. Show the state of the world we live in. I answered the survey. Wonder what the season will end up being.

Didn't get that email OD.

If there is little evidence of the virus in the community I don't have a safety concern.

On the other hand masks, zones, entry times etc takes a lot of joy out of the exercise for me so I will not be racing along.

Hopefully the grassed slopes at Casey along with my comfy chair is an option for me as the year progresses. Doubt that visiting the 1/4 and 3/4time huddles will be permitted.

  • Demonland changed the title to Survey: Are you going to the G?

100% will be there for round 1 if allowed. 

I expect a long lockdown in winter as Vic can’t trace and control cases. So I’ll be going in April while I can

Yes of course I'll be attending the G but am fully expecting all the VIC clubs and Gil to be heading to SE Queensland in time for round 1.

We (VIC) just can't take a trick with the handling of COVID.

I am in the kill zone BBP I am taking zero chances at the least until a large part of the population is vaccinated. Until then there is nothing that would get me to a game even if we are 8 and zero.

Well, I haven't seen a family member in a tick over 13 months so the 'G isn't high on the list.  On the other hand, get some good vaccine coverage that successfully suppressed spread as well as controls symptoms in individuals and we're really in business and it is very easy to imagine the whole family getting a good screech going at the 'G.

Dear Science,

Please save us.

Regards,

Everyone.

1 hour ago, don't make me angry said:

The lockdown will be longer then 5 days Dan the dictator already knows he will keep it in place for a month, mark my words, don't trust anything he says, he is a pit of lies.

I'll leave this up as a warning to all to please keep personal politics out of the footy threads.

Ok to predict we might be in lockdown for longer but let's not go down the political blame game rabbit hole. There are other venues to vent.

Yes, haven’t seen a live win for nearly two years, not that we are a certainty but still. Glad at least some supporters got to witness a live win last season. 

I’ve missed going to the footy and having a couple of beers with my footy mate.

I will definitely go if it's allowed. My concerns about health and safety are there but minimal. If it came down to limited numbers I'd be happy to 'job share' with other members 1 game on 1 game off if something like that was put in place.

Not sure if Round1 but would really like to see the Saints  Cats  and Tigers games. 
All depends upon Travel Lockdown and vaccine Plus AFL strategy of course.

Qld to Vic and return is very much like a Demons season ( of the past hopefully) plenty of highs and lows!!

Really want to see a young side selected So we can grow over the year, as youth is the exciting growth pattern to hit our team if we are to succeed in 2021.

OUT  (Depth and will get some games but not all in same team.)

 AVB ANB Jets Milkshake Jonesy ( still will get 300 though) .

IN ( Opportunities early on for some but no restrictions over the season) 

Laurie Bowey Rosman Jordon Sparrow and of course LJ Kossie and Riv. Even Nieitschke Chandler and Bedford are not without hope.
BBB of course after Round3/4.
 

Just hope we can all get there and celebrate these newbies combining with the old favourites!

I’ll be there for sure as long as we get this latest (and any other for that matter) outbreak under control. I’m not in a risk category and have been bolstering my immune system with vit C, D and zinc so I hope I can fend off this virus if I come into contact.

The best thing the govt can do now is move hotel quarantine to the regions and out of the CBD. This second leak confirms for me that leaks are inevitable so makes no sense quarantining in populated areas.

We are affected by  incompetence and political play making on many levels during this time

I cant believe what is being allowed to happen

But like everything on here we all have our views 

Next month we we will all be scared of the Brazilian  strain or the south African strain and be shut down. Maybe this  is how we intend to deal with this in the long term God I hope not!

I wonder what the risk analysis really says. I will be definitely going tom the G whenever possible 

I dont feel at any particular risk.

If the vaccine is available before the 1st round or any round l will go with confidence  The vaccine won't be 100% effective however it will be  enough for me to be at the G.  

Roll out the vaccine it can't come quick enough..

Both my wife and I will be going (if allowed), we are 70 and we trust the science. The science of maths, at present you have a much higher chance of drowning than dying of covid 19.

If you dont go when you can, how do you know if you will be able with all these rule changes. Take what you can because....... I cant say the rest as it would be deemed personal politics.

Air travel will probably be out so I plan on jet-skiing it over from Perth for round 1. I’ll probably hug the coastline, have a pit-stop and refill in Glenelg, grab a sausage roll and an ice-coffee then continue on to the Yarra. Park up, walk to the ‘G, watch the game then head back.

    OUR GRAND OLD FLAG by George On The Outer

    When an AFL Grand Final approaches, supporters look for omens to help them foresee how their team will fare in the contest.   Melbourne supporters were, until just before Saturday’s opening bounce, the best in the business at looking for positives to give them hope and direction - a natural feeling after 57 years in the wilderness. So when the Bulldogs’ streamers kept slipping from the handle of the Premiership Cup as Glen Jackovich delivered it to Optus Stadium, they wondered whether it

    THE ICING ON THE QUAKE by Whispering Jack

    It’s not Christmas yet but if the Melbourne wins its last game of the 2021 season, then many of its fans will be celebrating early. There already are some parts of our town where the pending festivity is preordained. Houses are decked out with red and blue banners and streamers, some of which appeared as early as last Saturday week, on the morning after the Demons’ magnificent 83-point crushing of Geelong in their preliminary final at Optus Stadium. While it’s great to see the numbers of lo

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition t

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s

    SKIN THE CATS by Whispering Jack

    The task ahead for the Demons as they wend their way down the Princes Freeway to Geelong on Saturday night will be to skin the Cats. For them to come away with the points from this game would mark an historic occasion for the club as it will finish on top of the ladder for the first time since its last premiership year, 1964. And it was in that year, that a trip to Corio Bay to meet the reigning premiers in Round 12, was one of the catalysts for Melbourne’s surge to the flag. It was a top o

    REACH FOR THE STARS by George on the Outer

    It was a game of great significance for the Melbourne Football Club. A win would see them keep top spot on the ladder with one round remaining. To achieve top place in the Round for Reach when we are all inspired to “Be Like Jim” and reach for the stars was a great way of honouring one of our heroes. All the better given that it was done by way of an emphatic 41 point win against Adelaide! It is worth remembering that, but for the umpiring mistake in the previous encounter with the Crows, t

    TICKETS PLEASE by The Oracle

    A lot of water has passed under Princes Bridge in the five years since Melbourne last met Adelaide on the MCG. The Crows were riding high at the time while the Demons were mid-table and scrambling for a win to stay in the race for the finals. The 30,000 fans who had tickets to the game were thoroughly entertained by a close, high scoring affair that ended in tears for fans of the home team. Not even an eight-goal second term could help them.   Times have changed.    In the fi
