Firstly, I would like someone to ask the CEO Gary Pert about the progress for the Melbourne Football Club's home base for administration and training next to Gosch's Paddock.

If you could please ask Gary Pert the question if he could clarify if our home base will be built at car park E or the much more preferred car park F? Tell him that car park F makes for more sense and that car park E would only work if we were allowed both car park E and car park F to build upon. The more room to build the better.

Also ask if the name of the training base could possibly be called the Nathan Jones' training centre? Furthermore, we should have a statue of Nathan Jones (or perhaps David Neitz?) similar to how Collingwood have a statue of Lou Richards at the Holden Centre.

Has Gary Pert been looking at the objective of achieving 70,000+ members for the Melbourne Football Club within the next 5 years?

Lastly ask if there has been any news from the MCC about possibly having a statue of Robbie Flower at the MCG?

i'd be curious to hear what his role is within the club on grand final week? does he provide much support to the players, or leave it mostly to the coaches and FB dept? 

what the general feeling is within the club? confident, nervous, or it hasn't really sunk in we're 5 days out from the best chance to win a flag we've had in decades

I would love to know what long term list planning they have going on. I doubt he would tell us who we are targeting in the off season, but just more around do we keep recruiting and trading for the now, or are we focused on long term sustained success by going for younger player and the draft?

  • Demonland changed the title to PODCAST: Gary Pert Pre-Grand Final Interview

Just thought I would let the LIVE listeners know that I will just be releasing this interview as a podcast rather than playing it LIVE.

Tomorrow night (Tuesday 21/9) we'll be doing our LIVE Grand Final Preview Show and I might play the interview at the end of that show. Otherwise you can listen to it via Soundcloud, Apple Podcasts or whether you get your podcasts from.

We had a change of plans. We were going to play the interview prior to the preview show on Monday 20/9 but decided to release the interview as a separate podcast on Monday 20/9 and do the LIVE preview show on Tuesday 21/9.

Thanks guys.  All the right questions to Perty, and the answers I wanted to hear.  My confidence is growing, albeit at a slightly slower pace than the nervous tension ....... but I wouldn't want it any other way!

Just started listening, really interested in his comment about being away from Melbourne is helping the team.

I 100% agree with this, all the MFCSS veil of negativity types would be such a drain on the players if they were in Melbourne, so I think it could be the best thing for us.

Also Melbourne as a city is a very depressing place to be. The weight of expectations to deliver joy to the millions of sad sacks locked inside would be very crippling. 
Would be easy to have it out of sight and out of mind in WA.

That's because it is not on the correct day! 

The Grand Final was always scheduled on the 25th was it not?

The only thing that changed this year was the placement of the pre-finals bye to the pre-Grand Final bye.

    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

    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

    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
