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?

Enjoy the win.  Dees will run them off their feet after half time.

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.

    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. Were th

    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
