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

    CANCEL CULTURE by Whispering Jack

    I’m not one who likes mixing politics with sport but it should be noted there have been some unusual trends in the world of sport lately. In the US, Major League Baseball announced that it’s moving the 2021 All-Star Game and the 2021 MLB Draft out of Georgia, in response to the state’s new voting law. Over here, there’s a move to force Carlton to change its club song because the original song on which it was based (written in the late 1800s) has “racist connotations”. The Blues maintain the curr

    MOGGIES MASTERED by George on the Outer

    They say that herding cats is an impossible task but not for the Melbourne Demons who through relentless pressure, scored a commanding 25 point victory in Round 4 over Geelong at the MCG. The team that missed the AFL finals only once in the past dozen years were shown up by the new Demons of 2021 who have recorded their first 4-0 opening to the season in 21 years! Melbourne knew what was coming, and it was Geelong who were shown up for their inability to adapt to the 2021 style of foot

    UNDER MY SKIN by The Oracle

    The story goes that there’s a certain player from Geelong who has been seen in Moorabool Street crooning the old Sinatra classic, “I’ve got you under my skin.” His name is O’Connor and he’s been tasked to achieve one thing on Sunday by his coach, Chris Scott: to get under the skin of a Demon midfielder on Sunday and thereby tag him out of the big contest at the G. The idea behind the tactic is to not only blunt one of the team’s most destructive weapons but to distract them all from producing th

    MAX IN SPACE

    Demon skipper Max Gawn is one big unit at 208cm and lately he’s been standing even taller. We already know that he’s unstoppable in the air when going for a mark but with three consecutive victories to open the season, you might say that he has his head in the clouds.  And that is literally true thanks to a fan at Demonland.com who recently arranged for our big ruckman to go even further than the clouds but way beyond to the edge of space and into the stratosphere.

    CAPITAL PUNISHMENT by George on the Outer

    A 34-point win in the nation’s capital has seen the Demons kill the Giants hopes early in the 2021 season. It wasn’t only the scoreboard, but a succession of injuries to major players for GWS that has put paid to their aspirations. The winning result wasn’t just due to the opposition losing players, but also to the relentless pressure from this 2021 Melbourne side that put them in the winners circle. In past years, a 16 point deficit at the first change combined with a rampant Toby Greene w

    POWER AND THE PASSION by Whispering Jack

    The Demons ran out for their Qualifying Final match against the Fremantle Dockers at Casey Fields as the sounds of Midnight Oils’ “Power and the Passion cascaded over the mainly friendly pro-Melbourne crowd. It was a far cry from the season opener at Carrara in late January where few of their fans were in attendance in high 20’s heat and humidity and silence greeted every score from the slow-starting Demons. They ran away from the lowly Suns, won comfortably in the end and followed that with ano

    BREAK OUT by Whispering Jack

    Despite the chaotic events occurring in Canberra over the past few weeks, one thing is for certain. This weekend’s game at Manuka Oval in the nation’s capital between the GWS Giants and Melbourne will decide which of Scott Morrison or Leon Cameron is the most under the pump at this point in time.  This time twelve months ago, the Giants were coming off a season in which they had played off in a grand final. They opened up their 2020 campaign with a resounding 32-point victory in round 1 aga

    MARVELOUS PRESSURE by George on the Outer

    Is this a new form of Melbourne which has suddenly emerged in 2021?  In the past, whenever the pressure was applied, the team would falter early and as a consequence, it would more often than not, be forced to confront its own self-inflicted failure. But perhaps not so this year. The match at Marvel Stadium against the Saints provided an insight into how creating pressure, actually relieves it on the club, players and coach. Right from the start, Melbourne was there to make a stat

    STUCK IN THE MIDDLE by The Oracle

    Throughout the off season, St Kilda was touted as an improver and a possible challenger for a top four position mainly off the back of another good trade and draft period at the end of last year. Then in Round 1, the undermanned Saints made a shaky start and almost succumbed to the Giants but they managed to come home from a wet and woolly Sydney with the four points intact. For Round 2, they have a couple of handy players returning so they come into the the game at Marvel Stadium choc

    A SCRAPPY, SLOPPY SUCCESS by George on the Outer

    After what seemed like an eternity without Footy in Melbourne, the Demons and their fans produced a scrappy, sloppy yet successful return to the MCG. Yet is was against an interstate team from the furthest reaches of the country, but the 21K fans who made it through the gates, was way below expectations for numbers.  Sure it can’t have helped with all the difficulty that Ticketek imposed just to get a ticket, and since you just couldn’t walk up, perhaps the number wasn’t that surprising.

    UNFINISHED BUSINESS by Whispering Jack

    The Melbourne Football Club has unfinished business with Fremantle after that unexpected loss in their previous clash at Cazaly’s Stadium in Cairns cost it a place in last year’s finals campaign.   Back then, the tired Demons spluttered listlessly through the humid conditions in tropical far North Queensland playing in and losing two games in the space of four days and against two lowly clubs. The end result was much more than an embarrassment for the club given what was at stake at th

    PRACTICE PUMMELLING by George on the Outer

    Was this a practice for what lay ahead for the Demons in 2021 or was it an outcome to expect because it was used as a true practice game? Those of us on the outside will never know, but a 39 point loss to the Western Bulldogs was a pummelling in anyone’s language. We can draw some consolation from the players that Melbourne put on the field, with Toby Bedford, Jake Bowey, Kade Chandler, James Jordon and Tom Sparrow each getting a guernsey whereas they probably would not normally be in the f
