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.

Is it too early to look into the Grand Final Guarantee, LIDS OFF!

How many of you have taken up the GFG?

Made a joke about the itchy trigger finger at the start of May, I can tell you right now the SAFETY is off.

The AFL are going to try as much as possible to get Vic back to crowds  after this lockdown.  Remember they were 85% !!

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

What's  with the "WE" OD you haven't even gone outside your door to go to a game according to your posts!!

Took your advice and upgraded family memberships and purchased all our GFG's. I believe GFG's selling like hot cakes today.

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 YEAR THE SNOWFLAKES FELL by Whispering Jack

    The snow that fell on the slopes of Victoria’s mountain districts in the winter of 1965 was not considered good enough to satisfy the enthusiasts. The really heavy snow that season came in two waves further north in July and August. The first descended on the national capital where “Pig Iron Bob” still held sway. Snow flurries touched the landscape all the way across the Blue Mountains. The next big snow extended further north up to the hills around Mackay in Queensland. Snowflakes fell inside t

    DEES GIVE DOGS A BONE by George On The Outer

    First place versus second on the ladder promised to be a precursor to what can be expected in the coming finals race.  However, it was the Demons who faltered and gave the Bulldogs a bone to feed their hunger just weeks out from the end of the season. The win also sent the Dogs to the top of the ladder, a position they are unlikely to cede in the coming weeks, given their fixture. While Melbourne may now struggle to keep a spot in the top four with its draw and will likely depend on the res

    THE WORM WILL TURN by The Oracle

    When I was asked to preview this game, I wasn’t sure whether it was going to be played in Darwin, on the Gold Coast or the MCG. I had no idea as to the identity of Melbourne’s opponent. This would have made for one hell of an interesting match preview so I’m glad that the AFL managed to reorganize its fixture to enable a game … any game at all … to proceed in Round 19. We’ll worry about the Gold Coast Suns or whoever they put us up against when the weekend’s done and dusted and if and when

    DRAWN AND DEEFLATED by George on the Outer

    1st v 17th ... it would seem a sure one way contest between the Hawks and the Demons but it was not to be with the game finishing in a draw, the only positive being the Demons still retain their top spot on the ladder. Melbourne was taught a football lesson by Al Clarkson, who with limited resources, just instructed his players to scrap, fight and surge the ball forward.  It stifled the Melbourne free flowing style of play and denied them the opportunities they could normally expect.

    PINK RAIN by Whispering Jack

    There is no certainty about life under a pandemic. You wake up one morning without a care in the world; the sun’s shining and it’s a beautiful day. An hour later, everything’s up in the air, the entire state is on high alert and the apartment complex next door’s in lockdown. The simple decision you had to make about buying a ticket to the footy at the weekend suddenly might get put on the back burner. There are other things in life to prioritise and on top of that, they’re predicting rain for th

    COR BLIMEY by KC from Casey

    In years to come, the old timers will talk in wonderment about the “Avalon Avalanche” that hit Werribee’s Avalon Airport Oval on a mild winter’s afternoon at about ten minutes after the halfway mark of the game between the local Tigers and their cross town rivals, the Demons from Casey. At that moment in time, the game was poised as if on a knifepoint. Up until the main interval, it had been the visiting team which had maintained the lead from the start but it had struggled to entirely asse

    POWER FAILURE by George on the Outer

    South Australians should be well familiar with the damage that storms can do to the power supply.  But Port Power forgot those lessons on Thursday night football as they watched the Melbourne storm descend upon them from across the border and ruin their hopes of a top four placing. Just as equally, the win to the Demons cemented their spot in the top two and sent out the message that a team who had been going around in circles for the past couple of weeks, has in fact, turned into a cyclone

    CASEY SUFFER FIRST DEFEAT IN TWO YEARS

    The circumstances were a little unusual last Saturday night as KC from Casey was unavailable to report on the Casey Dees due to work commitments. On the ground things were somewhat unusual as well given that, although there was a game to be won on the night, preparations were also being made for the forthcoming Thursday night clash against Port Adelaide with Ben Brown rested for large slabs of the evening. It turned out perhaps, to be a stroke of genius for Melbourne with Brown making a strong c

    WEATHERING THE STORM by Mel Rundle

    The magic of Melbourne’s magnificent start to 2021 is beginning to wear off. In its past six matches it lost to three teams that were outside the eight, out of form —  teams which it had very little trouble bearing last year. This week, the temperature is turned up even higher with the hard fought spot in the top four at risk. The really ominous factor about the Demons’ upcoming Thursday night meeting with Port Adelaide this week is that it is due to take place at the very place where its dec

    FEE-FI-FO-FUM by George on the Outer

    “Fee-fi-fo-fum, without a Full Forward the Premiership can’t be won!” So said the GWS Giants, as they exposed Melbourne’s fatal deficiency with a nine point win at the MCG.  In past weeks Melbourne has been barely able to gloss over the lack of a serious target in front of goal, while others were able to contribute.  But in a near repeat of the game from the previous week, players running up the ground simply had no-one to kick the ball to, when all that was needed was that one tall target.

    MUCH ADO ABOUT EVERYTHING by Whispering Jack

    Let's face it. We Melbourne supporters are a demanding lot. Here we are with our team on top of the ladder with a record of 12 wins and 2 losses, a decent percentage and a fair run home for a team with finals credentials. We have a fit list with lots of in form players, many of who are in contention for All Australian and other high honours, the team’s playing with purpose and cohesion and its VFL affiliate is undefeated and going gangbusters.  Still, we're all walking around with conc

    HIATUS by KC from Casey

    After their five week Covid19 lockdown hiatus, the Casey Demons were fairly scratchy against Essendon VFL for the best part of 2½ quarters on Sunday afternoon but they finally settled down to motor away to a 48 point victory. With 20 AFL affiliated players on the team sheet, the Casey line up looked the strongest team ever put together since linking up with the Demons but the team struggled to score in the early going and managed its first goal to Aaron vandenBerg late in the first term.
