Is your opinion more significant than the media muppet's that started this BS. Yes, because I'm assuming you barrack for the Dees.

You've had your opinion, I agree with Praha, close this thread "move along, nothing to see here"

Wrong, there’s plenty of discussion about this topic.

Its not about believing muppets either but purely a relevant topic being currently discussed in the media.

It doesn’t mean I think it will happen

Simple fix. Get WFC and Freo out of Perth. Relocate all 2021 home games to other venues in Australia and the state can suffer the financial and performance ramifications.  It is clear now that we

Kane Cornes, Andy Maher and Rob Murphy

Move them to Sunday arvo and put Giants/Saints on Saturday night then. Channel 7 may not be happy but oh well If our game is moved I will be extremely angry - I've specifically organised my son's

Some just feel the need to post an opinion on everything they read or hear. You watch, some Muppet will be compelled to have a go at me for that comment.

Some feel the need to put people down for simply sharing information to a Demon chat forum believing they are holier than thou.

Change it to Perth Stadium would suit me better.

One of the things I want to do before I die is watch Melbourne beat West Coast at Perth Stadium in a final. A prelim would be ideal, but anything to scrub the memory of $1,000 down the drain in 2018 off my soul.

I think Marvel can still accommodate all Dees fans who want to go, if not then I wouldn’t be in favor.  

As a gesture of goodwill to the competition I don’t think it’s a bad idea (I mean it doesn’t cost us much) but my concern is then that it won’t be reciprocated. We got stitched last year with our trips to Cairns and overall itinerary so I would expect favorable treatment if/when fixtures are rescheduled or hubs are needed this season.

A gesture of goodwill? You have to be joking.

I will be beyond [censored] off if this game is moved.

No other club got as badly treated as us last year with the fixture. Some of that was plain bad luck (eg the Eagles game - though, even that is marginal - they should have postponed that game) but most were shafted.

As a gesture of goodwill we should play all 23 games at the g.

Yeah to be brutally honest our record at Marvel is miles better than the MCG in recent years and we play the venue so much better. I just didn't want to upset the MCG loving fans who hate attending Marvel.

Can't deny facts BBP but there's no place like the G!!!

I'm really hopeful about the training out at Casey having an impact on our performances at the G.

I thought there was some evidence of that today at the game. I thought both wingers kept their width and provided plenty of space and options going forward.

We hen you have all day to think about it our structure held up well save for some very average flying all together By the defence in the second quarter.

Pretty good effort all round with us getting true value from Maxy a standout but Trac and Clarry were great users each time they got their hands on the ball.

Defence was also solid with Maysie in 2020 form and Jake Looked like the2017 interceptor from Crows that we chased after. 

Forwards were honest and Hard working with Chandler a revelation being in the right place at the right time.

Very  promising season start with a genuine trade mark feel that the performance was built on a sound  Football base.

Imagine being stuck in a room with these three for a few hours.  A fate worse than death.

Cornes I understand, he’s a pure grifter, but why the hate from Andy and Bob. I listen to them most evenings and don’t find them too bad. Not my favorites by any means but I certainly don’t have the visceral gut reaction I have every time Mark Robinson opens his mouth. I turned against Gerald Whatley as well because of his guilt by association with Robbo.

I wasn’t joking Binman

I’m all for give a little to get a little. It greases the wheels. If moving the game meant we got a concession down the track such as switching an away trip from inter-state to the G (for example switch the Eagles game to the G this year, I mean the WA govt are going to be painful to deal for the AFL) I would consider it. Or we give up this game for an additional 2 extra games at the G later in the season?

I wouldn’t give up a G game for no benefit but expecting all games at the G is probably a bit too ambitious 😁

If McGowan imposes these absurd restrictions, just play the season either without WCE and Freo at all, or with them “hubbed” somewhere east. 
If that became public before the election he may change his tune.

Be pretty damn annoye

I'll be damn annoyed if McGowan ends up high jacking the season.

Make Freo quarantine at home for X amount of days but let them out for training. Anyone that transgresses gets a 6 week suspension and/or a $20,000 fine. Simples.

McGowan is sitting on a record-high 83% approval rating. 

Don't expect too much change in strategy from over there.

I assume by 'media' you mean the Herald Sun and Newscorp outlets flogging papers. 

MCC won't stand for it, and nor should they and/or the club.

This is what the AFL should be doing. Parting a shot across his bow. Mcgowan is an arrogant [censored] so they do this before the election he will be able squirm out of it and still keep his popularity. That is make an exception for traveling sports people or get em vaccinated.

None of this will happen though and we will be the ones holding the stick of dynamite.

TBH we will make a loss or just break even on the Freo game given a crowd of say 30k at most with all the extra staff needed for covid.

If the club were paid say a million to swap it wouldn't be a bad idea

You don't need that much extra staff because your ticket has all the Seat details on it and you are not supposed to wander around eating or socialising once you have got your food.

There are a small no if Covid officials who politely ask you to go to your seats.

I have seen this play out in Brisbane all last year at AFL and this year at the cricket. Yes if 50,000 are ticketed then more staff are needed but That would  happen any way

    THE EYE OF THE STORM by Whispering Jack

    When Melbourne monstered Richmond a few weeks back on the MCG thereby registering their sixth win on the trot, the block of games to follow looked highly appealing. After a stirring victory in difficult conditions over the reigning premier, the games to come were against a quartet of low achievers from 2020. North were winless, the Swans were the early high flyers now falling into a slump, Carlton couldn’t take a trick and the Crows had just lost an unloseable game to the Hawks in Launceston. Ev

    DUCKING A PLUCKING by George On The Outer

    With seven consecutive wins for 2021 behind it, and not having played well in its previous game,  Melbourne was ripe for the picking (or plucking) by the Sydney Swans. However, in the end, it was the Ducks who found themselves plucked by a Demons side that continues its relentless successful roll for the Season. Or did the Demons narrowly duck a plucking themselves? Sydney brought its usual game style to the M.C.G.  Get in front and then shut down the game, scrap and refuse to mov

    THE MERRY, MERRY MONTH OF MAY by The Oracle

    The month of May was a little more than halfway into its second day when the news came. Melbourne was on top of the AFL table for the first time since Round 3, 2005. As usual with the Demons, there was no time for celebration. They had just lost tough nut Jack Viney with yet another soft spot in his foot, Adam Tomlinson’s year was in ruins with what was subsequently confirmed as an ACL and Bayley Fritsch’s careless but unintentional fend off on North’s Tom Powell was about to see him charge

    BLUNDSTONE BOOTED by George on the Outer

    The tough Aussie Blundstone boot is made for true blue collar workers, and so it was at this aptly named stadium in Hobart, that the Demons were made to work their hardest for their seventh consecutive win of the season. From the outset, North Melbourne put scoreboard pressure on Melbourne with two majors at an early stage in the first quarter. The Demons fought back and temporarily had the lead but the Kangaroos responded to lead by five points at quarter time. This was not what the public

    UNTROUBLED by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons were untroubled for the third week in a row as they went on a four quarter romp at Marvel Stadium to record a 107 point win over an undermanned bottom-of-the-ladder North Melbourne VFL. The scoring riot began about ten minutes into the game when Sam Weideman notched the first of four goals that could easily have been six or seven but for some uncharacteristic misses from close in. The Demon forward, spurned so far by the club’s AFL selectors, demonstrated a strong work rate

    I’LL GIVE THEE A WIND by Whispering Jack

    The football world was reminded this week about the last time Melbourne opened a season with six wins or more in a row. That was in 1965 when Sir Robert Gordon Menzies was Prime Minister of Australia and the country was fighting a war in faraway Vietnam. It was before Jack Viney’s father, Todd, was born — a time when the game was played almost exclusively on Saturdays and when Demon fans used to wake up in the morning mostly safe in the knowledge that there was not even the remotest possibility

    MAKING HISTORY by KC from Casey

    This was a weekend of history with Anzac Day commemorations throughout the community including the sporting world including the VFL. For the Casey Demons, which originated from the Springvale Football Club founded in 1903, it was a double celebration as Saturday’s game was a celebration of the club’s 750th VFA/VFL match since admission to the competition in 1982. Springvale became the Casey Scorpions in 2005 when the club moved to Casey Fields and since 2017 has been known as the Casey Demo

    THE TWO ELEPHANTS NOT IN THE ROOM by WJ

    After another slow start when they conceded 2.3.15 to nothing in a handball-happy opening 15 minutes, the unflappable Demons delivered a warning sign of major proportions to the rest of the competition with their 34-point win over the reigning premiers in their Anzac Eve contest. And what made things even more ominous is that they did it without two elephants in the room - key forwards Ben Brown and Sam Weideman who have been amassing goals at VFL level while coming back from injuries that

    A TALE OF TWO HEROES by Whispering Jack

    On Saturday night at the ANZAC Day Eve game between Melbourne and Richmond, we will give recognition to the achievements of two great Demons who made significant contributions to the Melbourne Football Club over substantially different time spans. The first is the late Frank V “Checker” Hughes who was born on 26 February 1894 and began his career as a Richmond player in 1915. Shortly after, Hughes was called on to serve his country when he went to war during WW1. He returned from battle and

    TURNING POINT by The Oracle

    It wasn’t that long ago when Melbourne held sway in its Anzac Eve matches against Richmond. The early versions of the blockbuster saw the Demons home by 32 points in 2015 and 33 in 2016. When the turning point came it was dramatic and sudden. The Demons might have been on an upward curve in 2017 under new coach Simon Goodwin but so were the Tigers who had finished a disappointing 13th in 2016. When the teams met in Round 5 under lights in front of a crowd of 85,657 — the highest ever betwee

    STARTING OVER by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons made a successful return to the playing field with a 51 point away from home victory over the Box Hill Hawks. The visitors were starting over after a hiatus of almost 20 months and fielded a strong team of 14 AFL listed players against an undermanned opponent. And they showed from the first bounce that they were out to make up for lost time with an aggressive opening that saw them off to 21 point lead at the first break with thanks to a dominant midfield and two key forward

    NUTCRACKER by George on the Outer

    Q: How to crack a tough nut? A: Use a bigger hammer! It took Melbourne until the last quarter to crack the Hawthorn nut. These days, the Hawks under Alastair Clarkson simply don’t have the talent that served them so well in years gone, and they have to rely on not losing rather than trying to win.   The result is that the match became a slog for three quarters, as Hawthorn clogged the game, flooded heavily and simply stopped the Melbourne run.  Even in the first quarter the signs
