Depends on the for and against...

I just had lunch, but could fit a donut in. So i'd estimate i'm at 97% capacity. 

15%

I just got an email from MFC talking about the ticketing “Redemption Window”.

I feel this is appropriate terminology given the Demons’ chance for redemption is now. 
 

btw, any tips on getting tickets anywhere near my regular tickets? Lately, despite best efforts, we seem to end up on the other side of the ground.

Bloody hope not, still don’t understand the difference between 85% and 100%.

See what happens when our members ship numbers rise and we win lots of games. Imagine what it must be like for Tigers members trying to get tickets. Not that I wish for the reverse, the one upside of watching on the Tele.

Likewise. Enjoyed the win against tigers with a sprinkle of rain in the Southern Stand as opposed to the undercover Olympic stand seats I have paid for for years. Clues from those more expert at defeating Ticketeck would be gratefully received.

Not sure why people are worried about 85 or 100%. We’re not filling stadiums yet. Weather aside I was disappointed with the turnout on Anzac Eve. Can’t imagine the crowd will top that figure.

I guess it's the hope that returning to 100% capacity will also mean not having to book your seats through Ticketek.

Got my seats. Level 2, southern stand, right on the wing. Perfect.

I normally get an email or text giving me my bar codes for tikatek, ring up on the Tuesday after 1.00 and get my tickets, but I haven't got my emails/texts so far.

I'm a bit concerned that they have stuffed up, is anyone else in the same boat?

Not so sure about that...

Pretty hard when the ticketing system breaks down for 6 hours. Getting a ticket and sitting with family and friends is a complete joke, 

The bars are just insane. maybe 60 ppl in the bullring and 140 standing toe to toe outside 

Very hard if you want to go with friends and/or family, sit together etc etc.

Maybe we should all march on the MCG and extinction rebellion activists as that crowd seems to be allowed to gather in whatever numbers they want.

I don’t think that will happen anytime soon. The reason being the powers that be can’t, on the one hand, threaten five years prison for any Australian who attempts to return home from India, and at the same time allow 100% capacity on crowds at the footy. That is unless they were seen to be offering a trade-off, eg, mandatory mask wearing at the ground. I would happily wear a mask. Hells, I’d wear full PPE. But then my standards aren’t high since (as a result of circumstances beyond my control) I don't get to attend as many matches as I’d like.

The next arranged blockbuster is the dreamtime game in June/July. Can't see them going to 100% by then but not impossible.

Then it's the finals.

QB will probably be around 50k given Collingwood's year.

You just know there will be mini covid breakouts. How they are dealt with who knows.

Got level 2A this weekend...very pleased.

Federal aholes vs state aholes on those pints I would have thought. As in it’s up to the state government to allow the capacity change for venues and the heartless national government has locked Aussies out.

True. I guess since this situation is unprecedented the rules are kinda being made up as we go. Trial and error of biblical proportions.

    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

    CANCEL CULTURE by Whispering Jack

    I’m not one who likes mixing politics with sport but it should be noted there have been some unusual trends in the world of sport lately. In the US, Major League Baseball announced that it’s moving the 2021 All-Star Game and the 2021 MLB Draft out of Georgia, in response to the state’s new voting law. Over here, there’s a move to force Carlton to change its club song because the original song on which it was based (written in the late 1800s) has “racist connotations”. The Blues maintain the curr
