Are they ever going to get rid of physical membership cards and be only mobile phone ones? I know they are encouraging members to do so by offering benefits. I’m wondering how long until it doesn’t become an option. I really like having a membership card and lanyard and being able to wear it with pride, letting everyone see I’m a member. I appreciate it’s more of an effort/cost to them, but I’d hate to see it go away

Plus, I don't reckon the mobile phone in the microwave would end well.

Can someone explain how the Saints have 54k members this year and we’re only on 46k? We’ve had a higher tally them then the last few years (9k more in 2019), yet, there they are sitting 14th on the ladder or something with 8k more members than us?

Because every SMJFL player has the option to add a free 3 game St Kilda membership to their playing registration. I get one for my son each year so that I can compare their communications with members to what MFC members get.

Bought a bottle of wine at the Hugh Trumble last Sat night. $51.00.

Depends what wine it was!!

Reputable or a lower popular label being slightly/ openly upgraded in price.

You don't get any decent wine at a licensed club  or restaurant For less than $40 I would testify. 

Interestingly  glass of wine in the Gabba Members Trust in Brisbane is between $10 or $11  and a medium style so much on a par.
 

Just remember MT 64 another 7/8 home games and 3 Finals  at $50 only means about $500 before our next FLAG.
 

Better get the price of the Best Sparkling  Wine for that last Sat in September!!!

It might be more civil in Hugh Trumble Cafe than the rollicking Bull Pit full of atmospheric charm and off the cuff singing!!

Trust me I will have spent a lot more than $500 before the next flag assuming it's this year. I shudder to think what the expenditure would be if it was next years flag. I have a 73' Grange waiting, if required, for the last Sat in September. Bubbles get up my nose.

 A glass of Sav Blanc is $11 throughout the MCC so we seems to be on par with the Gabba.

Yes I have a couple of Chandons Sparkling plus a 10 yr Penfolds Bin 389 awaiting!

Lets hope we are in the position in September to choose!!

I am surprised that we haven’t passed our 2019 total, we are now a better and more mature side. Come on you true believers get on board.!!!!!!

All us true believers are no doubt already signed up but its surprising we haven't enticed more of the casual supporters to sign up considering how well the guys have been playing.

We MIGHT have a membership tent open this week.  Awaiting advice from AFL.

Ridiculous that they can't do this given you can go to Demon shop, crowd in, and purchase merchandise.  Or buy a hamburger from one of the pie carts outside, but you can't collect a scarf from the club at their stall.

There is a lot that is not logical George. To be honest in some areas I have given up. Paid my membership as last year and the game is now TV for me. I don't enjoy it any where near as much as going to a game but this is the game in 2021, thank God we are winning games or I might have retired.

Does anyone know how you can get the member thank you cheap donuts on Sunday by showing your membership card when you've opted for mobile membership and don't have a card?

The MFC Hub is open again from the Carlton game. Hopefully if COVID stays controlled it will stay open.

I'm pretty sure it's just the website that hasn't been updated, they clearly would have sold at least one Membership in the last week and a bit.

Were they selling memberships outside the ground yesterday? They had a "Demon's Shop" open for scarf collection outside Gate 2 and at worse would they not be able to sell memberships in the Demon shop on Brunton Ave.

Anyone know if the one off payment add on for a guaranteed GF ticket for Red & Blue members is still available or sold out ? (Not that I want to jinx us?)

    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

    ELECTRIFYING by George On The Outer

    What more can they throw at the Demons of 2021? Covid restrictions, hubs, aircraft circling between airports before landing for games and now a match stopped for 30 minutes to give a flagging opponent its second wind? To date, none of those distractions has swayed the team from their winning objectives. The game against West Coast in Perth can be marked on their report card as another positive outcome after yet another test. There was much at stake for both sides.  Melbourne had t
