At least when Dictator Dan locks us down.constantly we don't need to worry about having no home base and where we would go to celebrate after a premiership. 

Well aren’t you just one big bucket of fun!

I’ve promised to wear my hair in Sailor Moon buns for a week if we do. Even though my boss would be furious, it’s a bet I’ve promised to do.

One brother has promised to get a demons tattoo on his bum, the other has pledged not to go to work for a week.

We’re a crazy family

I'd be getting a tattoo of an iconic moment in the granny... think Jones celebration pic during the elimination final v Geelong. 

Then I'd buy as much 2021 demons merchandise as humanly possible.

Then I'd buy the 2022 jumper because we would have the gold afl logo. 

Then I'd renew my membership for the whole fam. 

 

Then id probably have some divorce papers to read through.

I'd offer to overdub the grand final DVD with commentary of my own for free. Which would be marginally more informative than the channel 7 nuffies but with more slurring in the second half.

I've spend the best part of 58 years expending emotional and spiritual energy on this mostly disfunction organisation. It's easily the longest relationship of my life. And i don't even wanna think about the money i've poured into the joint, one disaster after another. So a premiership would barely balance the scales. Having said that, I'll be buying all the relevant merch . . . it's what people in long-term, codependent relationships do.

Disobey stay at home orders and run nude down the street 

At least keep a mask on for the benefit of public health. In fact, maybe a second mask as well, you know, also for the benefit of the public.

As for me... I reckon I might convince my wife/her family to do a Vietnamese match commentary and crowd noise. The 95% of relatives back in Vietnam are all heavily locked down so it might be a fun family project that would also make them all understand football. :D

EDIT: I brought it up and she declared the plan has to be for ME to do the commentary in Vietnamese! Now we're talking a serious commitment.

its not what I could do for the club, but what the club could do for us.

if we were to salute, and after all this time, we couldn't be there, then I want the cup to visit my (every members) house. (Iets not worry about logistics)

I want the opportunity to lift it above my head, drink champagne from it, put my baby in it, kiss it, hold it and shed a tear. it would be the next best thing to being there IMO.

The imagery could be used for next years membership campaign

What would I do for the club? [censored] all!

We've stuck through with them in the dark days, the horrific days and even the Mark Neeld days.

I would accept a thank you from the club for sticking around when many have dropped off

I would celebrate like a maniac and buy my membership for next year and cheer my guts out like usual

Last week I saw a bloke in Ivanhoe on Channel 7 news had painted a mural on his house of Gawny, Kossie and Trac. His daughter put him up to it (are you on DL????). It was magnificent.

My wife told me not to get any ideas, but I could totally see my house painted in red and blue (they are my two favourite colours after all)

I will be going out. Regardless of Covid Restrictions 

if i am arrested, i am sure the Police will understand 

If you’re assuming that currently lockdown conditions exist (really hope it doesn’t) I will run to just about every corner of my 5km radium wearing red and blue head to toe screaming like a lunatic. If I get stopped I’ll say I’m doing exercise. 

FWIW I’m hoping that should we get to that final day in September by that stage there will be restrictions that have eased for outdoor gatherings and that the club maybe be able to organise outdoor viewing locations in parts of Melbourne such as Casey, next to AAMI, and maybe fed square. If the AFL were really fair they would make if free but ticketed and available to members of the two teams playing first.

Oh whoops, asking what I’d do FOR THE CLUB? Honestly I don’t think I’d do much for them except get as much Melbourne garb out the front of the house to let everyone know how proud I am. And honestly if people wanted to take stuff I probably wouldn’t be upset with that!

I actually don’t know what I would do, as years of my youthful exuberance gave way I think it would be like winning lotto, something you hope happens but not believing it actually will.

 I know I would have a decent drink, but not sure what my initial reaction would be, a mixture of overwhelming joy, relief and shock.

 I honestly thought in 87 after watching us at the G in the first final against North we were on such a run, we were going to win it beating whoever was in front of us, but alas it didn’t happen. 98 again I thought we were a chance but the old finals system and White going down at the wrong time didn’t help. I knew in 88 and 2000, something special needed to occur but on both occasions that was snuffed out by halftime. In 2018, I knew we were cooked going into the Prelim, that was evident against the Hawks the previous week that the tank was almost empty.

This season I have seen a very different defensive structure like never before, but like others I just don’t know if we’ll do it. Hopefully I find out, what my reaction to winning the flag will be

Would you be inspired to make a cash donation? If so, what sort of amount? Buy extra memberships? Upgrade current memberships? Grand final guarantee?

Me, i would go absolutely NUTS on commemorative merchandise. The drunker i got the more i would spend. Perhaps even a tatt to celebrate.

How far would you go after a flag?

When my maker comes for me, I could finally die a happy man with no regrets.

I’m already over $600 deep in a membership that meant i sat in my reserved seat once this year, and wont get to any finals.  I have no income in lockdown and wonder more about getting through than what i can give to the footy club.

Did we win?

I've taken some inspiration from this thread. I'd definetly get a high quality poster framed of the iconic moment. 

Would have to get the jumper for next year so i can have the gold logo, i did it when Liverpool won the league.

Other than that, i already pay for a membership, purchased a proud to give jumper and dropped 200$ as a bonus donation.

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2021 by Whispering Jack

    MUCH ADO ABOUT NOT MUCH The 2021 Free Agency and Trade Periods were billed by Fox Footy as promising a “period like no other and that certainly proved correct but not for the reasons that Network spin suggested when promoting its daily program of news from the trade desk. The truth is that the football public has endured an uneventful and forgettable fortnight unless you perhaps, happen to be a Carlton or a Hawthorn fan. The Blues managed to pick up the biggest name of the trade peri

    CHANGES 2021 by The Oracle

    Part 1: Moving right along … For the first time in aeons, the end of the football season hasn’t felt as if it passed so swiftly. We’re still living the dream of 25 September, 2021 and rightfully so — we were patient, long-suffering and we’ve earned the right to party hard (as long as we’re not infecting the rest of the state as some health authorities contend). But we’ve also come into October which in football terms means that for one segment of the Melbourne Football Club — the recru

    THE APPRENTICE by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne Next Generation Academy prospect Mac Andrew has had a meteoric rise in the eyes of many track watchers who follow the fortunes of football talent at the elite level. So much so that under the AFL's new rules which prohibit clubs from matching bids on their NGA players within the first 20 selections, there’s a widely held perception that Andrew is falling out of the club’s grasp.   Despite being buoyed by the Demons’ drought-breaking premiership, some fans are showing their a

    OUR GRAND OLD FLAG by George On The Outer

    When an AFL Grand Final approaches, supporters look for omens to help them foresee how their team will fare in the contest.   Melbourne supporters were, until just before Saturday’s opening bounce, the best in the business at looking for positives to give them hope and direction - a natural feeling after 57 years in the wilderness. So when the Bulldogs’ streamers kept slipping from the handle of the Premiership Cup as Glen Jackovich delivered it to Optus Stadium, they wondered whether it

    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 th

    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
