Yep. Being a 71 year old junior seems to be the only way I can get the reserved seat I've already paid for :) And 70 yr old Mrs B will be pleased she is attending with junior status

Does anyone know which bays are considered "dry/alcohol free zones"? My reserved seat ticket is unlocking seats in M5 or M34, I'm concerned these are alcohol free.   I sound like I have

Normally the process is very smooth. Today I selected 'Melbourne allocation 1', thinking well yep, I am a H&A reserved seat member that makes sense (and it is our replacement game), and then

I sound like I have a problem, I swear I just want to enjoy a couple of beers with some mates.

And I am taking oxygen as well, haven’t been at such altitudes for years.

if you add a $0 junior ticket for every adult ticket you're getting, it should go through.

It should clearly state this when you book if it is a dry area. So if you see nothing you’ll be fine.

Well done to the MCG for closing the top level of the southern  and ponsford stand last week (where most seats are under cover) despite it raining for most of the game.

And how about they turn on the lights before three quarter time!!

Question for AFL members, but for next week...

My friend is an AFL member and he wants to come to our game next week vs Richmond.

I have a home game GA membership.

How would I get us seats together?  Take his barcode and then enter that along with mine, when my allocation is available? So 5pm Tuesday?

Or would I have to wait for public release time the following day?

if you enter both at same time it works on lowest common multiple, so you would have to wait till his allocation time

i had this same issue round 1

sorry, just saw he is AFL member, so I don't really know. the above was for club member with free guest tickets (e.g. digital member)

Great question, i have two guest passes with my membership am i allowed to have my guests sitting with me or do we have to sit elsewhere?

assuming you mean for a home game (e.g. next week)

yes, if you enter them at same time. if you have reserved tickets it will seat you as though you didn't, so you would get a lesser seat, say on level 1 general reserve.

hint: process 2 guest tickets as junior 1-5 upgrade no charge. Worked for me and they can sit with you in a better reserved seat area such as level 2 wing northern or southern

Maybe it'd be the same as what you said but just in reverse. He is AFL, I am club with home game GA.

I'm lowest denominator, so wait till my allocation time? 

I'll try next week and see what happens  👍

Last time i got a nose bleed there was almost 30 years ago.  1981 Semi Final, Collingwood vs Fitzroy.  I cannot recall why or how i got there.   The G and the bar at the Hilton were basically my second home lol.

Must have been a freebie.  I recall seeing the players running around like ants, not feeling that connected to the atmosphere in any way even though there was a huge crowd, suffering from vertigo on occasions and not being happy with the outcome.

The days when i had 20/20 vision!

Ring AFL membership but I don't think you can sit together as you both( I dont  think ) can sit in each other's area unless the barcode is able to be included in your  booking ( Also Check Membership at MFC) before ticket times are upon you.

I’m level 4,652 in the Ponsford as well.  Will have to dig out the binoculars. 

Maybe if we all sit near enough together and yell out what we would otherwise have posted on DLand, we can get to watch the game instead of burying our heads in our phones.

Thought I might head into Docklands and use my AFL membership to watch Dogs v Suns but according to Ticketmaster no AFL tickets left !!!

Usually you just scan in and sit on level 4 general admission.

Lots of tickets for $25 but my AFL membership is supposed to provide free entry into all Melbourne games.

Not happy..... as usual 😎

Could not agree more RN too high for me.

    THE EYE OF THE STORM by Whispering Jack

    When Melbourne monstered Richmond a few weeks back on the MCG thereby registering their sixth win on the trot, the block of games to follow looked highly appealing. After a stirring victory in difficult conditions over the reigning premier, the games to come were against a quartet of low achievers from 2020. North were winless, the Swans were the early high flyers now falling into a slump, Carlton couldn’t take a trick and the Crows had just lost an unloseable game to the Hawks in Launceston. Ev

    DUCKING A PLUCKING by George On The Outer

    With seven consecutive wins for 2021 behind it, and not having played well in its previous game,  Melbourne was ripe for the picking (or plucking) by the Sydney Swans. However, in the end, it was the Ducks who found themselves plucked by a Demons side that continues its relentless successful roll for the Season. Or did the Demons narrowly duck a plucking themselves? Sydney brought its usual game style to the M.C.G.  Get in front and then shut down the game, scrap and refuse to mov

    THE MERRY, MERRY MONTH OF MAY by The Oracle

    The month of May was a little more than halfway into its second day when the news came. Melbourne was on top of the AFL table for the first time since Round 3, 2005. As usual with the Demons, there was no time for celebration. They had just lost tough nut Jack Viney with yet another soft spot in his foot, Adam Tomlinson’s year was in ruins with what was subsequently confirmed as an ACL and Bayley Fritsch’s careless but unintentional fend off on North’s Tom Powell was about to see him charge

    BLUNDSTONE BOOTED by George on the Outer

    The tough Aussie Blundstone boot is made for true blue collar workers, and so it was at this aptly named stadium in Hobart, that the Demons were made to work their hardest for their seventh consecutive win of the season. From the outset, North Melbourne put scoreboard pressure on Melbourne with two majors at an early stage in the first quarter. The Demons fought back and temporarily had the lead but the Kangaroos responded to lead by five points at quarter time. This was not what the public

    UNTROUBLED by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons were untroubled for the third week in a row as they went on a four quarter romp at Marvel Stadium to record a 107 point win over an undermanned bottom-of-the-ladder North Melbourne VFL. The scoring riot began about ten minutes into the game when Sam Weideman notched the first of four goals that could easily have been six or seven but for some uncharacteristic misses from close in. The Demon forward, spurned so far by the club’s AFL selectors, demonstrated a strong work rate

    I’LL GIVE THEE A WIND by Whispering Jack

    The football world was reminded this week about the last time Melbourne opened a season with six wins or more in a row. That was in 1965 when Sir Robert Gordon Menzies was Prime Minister of Australia and the country was fighting a war in faraway Vietnam. It was before Jack Viney’s father, Todd, was born — a time when the game was played almost exclusively on Saturdays and when Demon fans used to wake up in the morning mostly safe in the knowledge that there was not even the remotest possibility

    MAKING HISTORY by KC from Casey

    This was a weekend of history with Anzac Day commemorations throughout the community including the sporting world including the VFL. For the Casey Demons, which originated from the Springvale Football Club founded in 1903, it was a double celebration as Saturday’s game was a celebration of the club’s 750th VFA/VFL match since admission to the competition in 1982. Springvale became the Casey Scorpions in 2005 when the club moved to Casey Fields and since 2017 has been known as the Casey Demo

    THE TWO ELEPHANTS NOT IN THE ROOM by WJ

    After another slow start when they conceded 2.3.15 to nothing in a handball-happy opening 15 minutes, the unflappable Demons delivered a warning sign of major proportions to the rest of the competition with their 34-point win over the reigning premiers in their Anzac Eve contest. And what made things even more ominous is that they did it without two elephants in the room - key forwards Ben Brown and Sam Weideman who have been amassing goals at VFL level while coming back from injuries that

    A TALE OF TWO HEROES by Whispering Jack

    On Saturday night at the ANZAC Day Eve game between Melbourne and Richmond, we will give recognition to the achievements of two great Demons who made significant contributions to the Melbourne Football Club over substantially different time spans. The first is the late Frank V “Checker” Hughes who was born on 26 February 1894 and began his career as a Richmond player in 1915. Shortly after, Hughes was called on to serve his country when he went to war during WW1. He returned from battle and

    TURNING POINT by The Oracle

    It wasn’t that long ago when Melbourne held sway in its Anzac Eve matches against Richmond. The early versions of the blockbuster saw the Demons home by 32 points in 2015 and 33 in 2016. When the turning point came it was dramatic and sudden. The Demons might have been on an upward curve in 2017 under new coach Simon Goodwin but so were the Tigers who had finished a disappointing 13th in 2016. When the teams met in Round 5 under lights in front of a crowd of 85,657 — the highest ever betwee

    STARTING OVER by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons made a successful return to the playing field with a 51 point away from home victory over the Box Hill Hawks. The visitors were starting over after a hiatus of almost 20 months and fielded a strong team of 14 AFL listed players against an undermanned opponent. And they showed from the first bounce that they were out to make up for lost time with an aggressive opening that saw them off to 21 point lead at the first break with thanks to a dominant midfield and two key forward

    NUTCRACKER by George on the Outer

    Q: How to crack a tough nut? A: Use a bigger hammer! It took Melbourne until the last quarter to crack the Hawthorn nut. These days, the Hawks under Alastair Clarkson simply don’t have the talent that served them so well in years gone, and they have to rely on not losing rather than trying to win.   The result is that the match became a slog for three quarters, as Hawthorn clogged the game, flooded heavily and simply stopped the Melbourne run.  Even in the first quarter the signs
