Return to Your Reserved Seat from Rd 9



Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

This is good.

Still waiting on the following to resume back to normal:

Top level of Southern Stand to re-open for all games.

Walk ups available for AFL membership, MCC and public.

Kids let in for free on Sundays.

Kids able to sit with parents on Sunday games in AFL members reserve at the MCG - free of charge

Hot pies/chips and cold beers rather than the other way around (although I concede this one is probably too hard to achieve)

Thank god sanity has prevailed and we no longer have to deal with Ticketek to get a ticket to sit 3 rows behind our normal seat

Only the AFL could come up with a system that lets people sit in their own seats that is more complicated than the system to book tickets each week. 

A seven step process that can only be done two days before the game? How pathetic.

I was quite enjoying being 7 rows closer to the bar in N53. At least we have our aisle seats back I guess. Swings and roundabouts.

I like how the inane ticketek system has been replaced by a short 18 step process to be undertaken 2 days prior to a game while upside wearing green pants between the hours of 2:46 and 3:14pm. 
Love how the AFL is keeping it simple 🙄

If we have reserved seats does our normal membership ticket get us into the game or is there more silly nonsense going on with ticketec.

Can one person register for other people using the app or does each member have to do it themselves? Ive been getting tickets for family members so far and they  have little hope of doing it themselves.

Premium members can return to their reserved seats from Round 9 vs Carlton.

So long N49. You will be missed.

I hope they stop the limit capacity on the bars too.. My god that is painful! Especially when you get a beer have a chat and then need to leave the bar to take a leak and can't get back in!

I don't understand the difficulty in using ticketek. It was taken me 5 minutes tops each time.

It's been quite painless for me and I've been getting infinitely better seating than my regular seats but I do understand that it might be difficult for others who are not as savvy whether it be the tech variety or just in understanding how it works generally.

I purchase tickets for family members and it has been seemless. I guarantee that if any of the people I am purchasing tickets for were to attempt it we would be watching the game at the junction oval if at all.

I only had issues for the Richmond game. My annoyance was paying for awesome seats I’ve picked but not being able to use them and getting allocated all sorts of rubbish I don’t pay for.

Fair enough then! I've only used my membership ticket barcode.

Can you only get into a game with a phone? What about downloading it onto an iPad? Or a printed copy of the ticket?

Mobile only by the looks of it

If she has her own phone she can download the MFC app and login as yourself, that should work also.

Thanks danielE288, my daughters are much more savvy than me so hopefully will be able to get around this additional bump in the road.😀

    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
