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.

Mate my 20 year membership certificate is signed by Mark Neeld. It could be worse.

Fair enough Old Dee. My Dad died late last year, so this is my first season without him, and it has taken on a melancholy tone as a result. But I must say, I did feel perked up after a couple of beaut

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.

they had a separate queue marked membership so i presume they were selling memberships and handling other membership queries

So only 1188 for the last two weeks. I think the covid restrictions are having a large effect. Much over 50k seems a big ask.

    HOT PIES FREEZE DEES by George on the Outer

    In the Annual Big Freeze game in support of Neale Daniher's fight against MND, it was Collingwood who froze the ambitions of the Demons, and it now challenges them to thaw out their prospects in the second half of the season. Even though Melbourne opened the scoring account, it was quickly countered by Collingwood, as the Demons appeared flat. And even though they held a minor lead at the first break, it was only through a couple of fortunate efforts, but nothing more.  All around

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne supporters are an unusual lot. Their lived experiences over years of witnessing their team’s humiliation at the hands of the competition’s bullies have left them suspended in a Bizarro World beset by a cognitive distortion know as 'mental filtering'. This is a phenomenon that occurs when people focus exclusively and blindly on long held belief systems. They refuse to accept that conditions have changed so when the evidence is present before their very own eyes, their minds are frozen.

    CHANGES: 2021 MID SEASON by The Oracle 

    Since the end of the 2020 free agency, trade and draft period, AFL clubs have had two further bites of the cherry to top up their lists — the supplemental selection period (SSP) and the 2021 mid-season rookie draft (MSD). The main idea behind both was to enable the fulfillment of immediate needs as a result of injuries or unexpected retirements but this year, we have seen the added dimension of straight out recruitment for the future rather than for now. As a consequence, a number of ready

    LION TAMERS by George On The Outer

    In an enthralling game between two top four sides, it was the Demons who tamed the Lions, and propelled themselves into the position of premiership favourite even though the season is barely past the halfway mark. This is because Melbourne keeps on beating those teams around them who might provide a challenge. Not only that, it keeps winning with emphatic displays of resilience and toughness that have not been seen in a Demons side for many, many years. Challenged in the first half of

    DUELING BANJOS by Whispering Jack

    In the classic Australian poem, A B “Banjo” Paterson sought the answer by letter to a question concerning the whereabouts of a drover named “Clancy”. The response from Clancy’s shearing mate was written with a thumb-nail dipped in tar: “Clancy’s gone to Queensland droving, and we don’t know where he are.” Most of us would have felt a little bit that way earlier in the week wondering about the possible whereabouts of the Melbourne team for this week’s encounter against Brisbane.

    DOGGED DEEFENCE by George on the Outer

    “No-one let the Dogs out” was the Demons response for the (former) top side.  The Melbourne defence, capably lead by Steven May and Jake Lever simply suffocated any hopes that the Western Bulldogs might have had about leading the competition at the mid-way point. Instead, it is the Demons who now sit at the top of the ladder, again a game clear, while their supporters are starting to believe that this side is the real deal.  Pity is that those same supporters couldn’t watch their team demol

    LOOK AWAY DEMON FANS by The Oracle

    Last week I predicted a comfortable Melbourne victory for its game against Adelaide. “Something in the order of 61 points”, I opined. Well, after the game, I checked the wording of my preview very carefully from all angles and I have now concluded that I have to issue an apology to Demon fans. I got it wrong. I’m not bitter and twisted about my error in failing to predict the coaching errors, defensive mistakes, lack of forward pressure and, of course, the complete failure of those officiat

    CALM BEFORE THE CALM by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons overcame a sluggish first half to run over the Sydney Swans in the second to record an emphatic 40 point victory, maintaining their undefeated record and retaining top spot on the VFL ladder. The game originally listed as part of the Round 4 fixture but delayed due to a Covid19 scare in Sydney and the scrappy way in which the teams approached the contest suggested that the players were still in delay mode. This applied in particular to most of the 12 AFL listed Casey player

    NOTHING TO CROW ABOUT by George On The Outer

    Melbourne’s nine game winning streak  came to an end in Adelaide with a one point loss to the Crows. Losing to a team that had only won three games for the season, having lost five in a row was certainly nothing to crow about.  All around the ground players collectively put in their poorest performance for the year.  The loss of Christian Salem before the match was critical, as his replacement Nev Jetta is a mere shadow the player he once was. The mind is still willing, but the body no

    CRYING OVER SPILT MILK by The Oracle

    It had to happen sooner or later. Melbourne has been riding high through the season to date and, with the exception of a small bunch of nuff nuffs who are never satisfied with anything, the club has attracted more positive vibes from the community in these nine weeks than it did in the past decade. So it came as no surprise to see some low grade stirring of the sort which only the media could come up with at a time like this. The on line site Zero Hanger came up with an article that opined,

    CATNIPPED by KC from Casey

    After winning big away from home across the first three rounds of the new look VFL competition, the Casey Demons were forced to dig deep against Geelong VFL at Casey Fields on Saturday. The traditional AFL based teams were evenly matched, fielding ten listed players apiece and this was reflected in the evenness of the game and the final margin which saw the home side leading by a solitary point on the final siren. Casey suffered an early blow when Jake Bowey came off with what ap

    BLUES IN THE RED by George On The Outer

    While the Demons’ undefeated run continues unabated now at 9-0 their emphatic 26 point victory pushed the Blues to their sixth loss for the season and deeper into the red for the year. While Melbourne opened proceedings with an early goal, the Blues responded with the next two to grab an early lead.  However, as has happened in so many games this year, the Demons fought back to lead by just over a goal come the first break. This narrow lead was part of a streak either side of quarter t
