There us no doubt that Covid has knocked off between 5/8,000 members and consequently a similar amount from our match day attendances.

ITS NOT TOO LATE TO GET TO THE "G" WHEN CROWDS GO BACK.

Most of these absentees will want Finals  tickets in September to attend and hopefully 100% safe Covid Plan will be in operation.

We will ( as Perty said last week) break our all time record this year of 52,000 odd before July 31 close of totals.

Are you or your friends still among the absentees or are you still a doubting Thomas??

Act while the iron is hot!!

I like your confidence that We will be going to games again in 2021.

They  Will carefully return with the Finals in mind at the G .

Well done Long S     Hope  your family are feeling the hope and expectation in a measured way. There is no certainty in life let alone footy but our boys have been nothing but committed and absolutely single minded about their input and methods this season.

it's looking very promising and above all sustainable with I believe our potential to score regularly over the 100 pts each round.

So much happening in improvement and growth. Maybe we could be a sleeping giant again at Finals  like 2018.

L we Rd get a Top2  spot and don't leave the G !!

No but saying/using "we" when  you have clearly stated you won't  be attending footy this year due to your response to Covid predominantly is not accurate!.

I have however seen the possibility you were "quoting" we as in Melb supporters or Dees fans as a collective and not necessarily yourself.

Main  thing is we maintain our Health as best we can and participate in community and live events as we see safely. 

Hope life in this current lockdown has been safe and strong OD.

Dees fans have the most important 4 mths of our football lives for over 50 years in front of us and with the prospect of something very special possible and even "life changing " so we want to soak it up and enjoy the ride as well as the result.

In at least one of my comments I said till at least until I have had my second jab which is scheduled for early August. Yes I meant We in the collective sense. I have to say I do not like watch football on TV it runs a very bad second to being at a game.

I am hopeful of getting in an August game at the G and hopefully an early finals game. 
However it depends on the virus remaining under control. Victoria seems incapable of stopping transmission from Quarantine so what I might wanted to do may never happen. 
So let’s beat the pies in their GF on Monday and see from there. 
Go Dees.

Gee, that's a long wait.  I'm not familiar with your location OD, but assume that is the reason?

I had my first jab on Sunday (as a walk up) and can go back for my second in 3 weeks.

Older Australians have to have the 2nd grade AZ vaccine. As a younger Australian you can have the premium. AZ has a longer wait between doses.

If you are over 50 you get the astra vaccine and for that you have to wait 3 months. Not because it is medical necessary but because the Government says so. The reason?  the want as many as they can to have had the first one asap. I.e not issuing second shots so they have them for  people to have  first shot.

Not sure where to mention this but our memberships will get you into the game if you can get yourself to Sydney, the boarder restrictions changed over night to allow travel if you have not been in one of the specific areas of infection

The Pfizer and Moderna mRNA is not all shts and giggles. Wife has been in bed 5 days after her second one. I had AZ (I’m 42 and in health and had it before the clotting came to light and can’t swap - it’s provided by work). Citation required but my understanding is they are similarly efficacious.

notably there are now potentially issues around heart inflammation for male recipients of Pfizer/Moderna.

Isn’t the advice from AZ itself that there needs to be a 3 month gap

All I know is my Dr said it is a  government decision. I have 2 friends who have had their second 5 weeks apart. However one of the partners has a compromised immune system so perhaps special treatment. Needless to say I have to wait 3 months between the two.

i read an article last week that said originally the makers of az recommended 12 weeks. it also said that this is actively under review and that some countries have varied it from 6 weeks to other weeks upto 12.

it also said there is uncertainty over the optimal wait time for the 2nd dose and more research is needed

the bottom line is there is uncertainty, lack of good data and well basically , much like a lot of things with coronavirus, nobody really knows.   a lot is really just best guess (albeit by medical experts)

Pfizer is two weeks and AZ is 12 weeks. I work inside public health so am reasonably across the messaging/reasons. Having said that it might be non clinical ie logistics/ensuring supply for first shots. CSL AZ supply no longer an issue as they’re doing 1 million a month out of their Vic facility

    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
