GWS game is the one after the ESS game and probably there will still be restrictions on crowd size in Melbs. I would prefer that to Adel in the second last round as we are sandwiched between a trip to Perth and your aforementioned trip to Mordor.

Perhaps the Hawks game? Would mean 3 consecutive weeks of travel though, so yeah the GWS makes the most sense (assuming NT let us in).

Due to circumstances out of my control I was unable to get to Melbourne earlier in the season and also missed last Friday night against the Lions but I’ve secured two tickets to Queens Birthday. 
Can’t bloody wait.

I went for the A category (most expensive - was $30 for me and $70 extra ticket) which landed us in the top level of the O'Reilly stand - when I tried the other categories seemed to get me on the fence or a couple of rows back - not my preference

My son and I are in row D in SBAY25 (Clive Churchill Stand); we opted for the free member tickets. We’re just behind and slightly to the right of the goals (if I’m remembering the layout correctly).

Me too seat 5

Were you involved with the Sydney supporter group? I'm sure we met on that great day when Brad Miller played the game of his life against BBB Hall and Cameron the Bruce snapped the winning goal!

I only went to one of those meetups at the Camelia Grove Hotel and it was a game in which we got smashed… there were plenty of those then. We may have met then?  If you want to say hello, just look for my beard a few seats along ?

We’re in seats 12 and 13.

Just watched Neale on AFL 360 

FMD

Tears

again. 
 

love that man. Seeing him now like this is just [censored]. 

my most favourite memory of Neale - at Schwartz’s pub day after 2000 granny - the tab ran out.... Neale was the bloke that got stung - had to pay for a round of about 20 drinks... no arguments just did it. Schwarta in panic stations on the phone... 30 seconds later - tab back on -carry on...

not far behind.. “take a [censored] mark Neita...”

Can MFC members still get free tickets and if so can we be giving out our barcodes to encourage people to get along and go? 

I got free tickets (MFC sent emails containing bar codes), but that might be because I live in Sydney.

Wonder how many folk from Melbourne will fly up for the game?

They would have had to have left a week ago. We need to do 14 days of home quarantine if we cross the border from Vic to NSW. I would happily go to the game otherwise.

I'd consider flying in on the morning and flying out at night, but will we be allowed back and forth?

I suppose it depends on what level of restrictions the NSW Gov imposes on Victorian travellers after the end of our lockdown on Thursday night.

No apparently we need to do 14 days home quarantine if we’ve been in Melbourne after 27/05. I actually checked earlier today as I thought of going to the game

Rules may change if we come out of lockdown Thursday night, but seems doubtful.

Pretty sure if you haven't been to any exposure sights and you've had a negative covid test, you don't have to self-isolate when you get there

Yeah, it's all about what the NSW Gov says once restrictions are eased. I reckon they might allow it, because it'll add to the NSW economy, a bunch of Victorians coming up for the game.

Not according to the link I posted above. 
We definitely need to isolate regardless of where we have been. 
Only people exempt are those living in border communities.

That will change once our lockdown ends. But talk is we only be able to go 25km from our homes. Sydney being a fair bit further might put the kibosh on going up.

Interesting. I hadn't heard that, but that will definitely stop us going up.

    THE ICING ON THE QUAKE by Whispering Jack

    It’s not Christmas yet but if the Melbourne wins its last game of the 2021 season, then many of its fans will be celebrating early. There already are some parts of our town where the pending festivity is preordained. Houses are decked out with red and blue banners and streamers, some of which appeared as early as last Saturday week, on the morning after the Demons’ magnificent 83-point crushing of Geelong in their preliminary final at Optus Stadium. While it’s great to see the numbers of lo

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition t

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s

    SKIN THE CATS by Whispering Jack

    The task ahead for the Demons as they wend their way down the Princes Freeway to Geelong on Saturday night will be to skin the Cats. For them to come away with the points from this game would mark an historic occasion for the club as it will finish on top of the ladder for the first time since its last premiership year, 1964. And it was in that year, that a trip to Corio Bay to meet the reigning premiers in Round 12, was one of the catalysts for Melbourne’s surge to the flag. It was a top o

    REACH FOR THE STARS by George on the Outer

    It was a game of great significance for the Melbourne Football Club. A win would see them keep top spot on the ladder with one round remaining. To achieve top place in the Round for Reach when we are all inspired to “Be Like Jim” and reach for the stars was a great way of honouring one of our heroes. All the better given that it was done by way of an emphatic 41 point win against Adelaide! It is worth remembering that, but for the umpiring mistake in the previous encounter with the Crows, t

    TICKETS PLEASE by The Oracle

    A lot of water has passed under Princes Bridge in the five years since Melbourne last met Adelaide on the MCG. The Crows were riding high at the time while the Demons were mid-table and scrambling for a win to stay in the race for the finals. The 30,000 fans who had tickets to the game were thoroughly entertained by a close, high scoring affair that ended in tears for fans of the home team. Not even an eight-goal second term could help them.   Times have changed.    In the fi

    ELECTRIFYING by George On The Outer

    What more can they throw at the Demons of 2021? Covid restrictions, hubs, aircraft circling between airports before landing for games and now a match stopped for 30 minutes to give a flagging opponent its second wind? To date, none of those distractions has swayed the team from their winning objectives. The game against West Coast in Perth can be marked on their report card as another positive outcome after yet another test. There was much at stake for both sides.  Melbourne had t
