Got my framed jersey today 🥰  Thankfully my wife came home early so no damage done after the [censored] courier decided it was easier to just leave it on fence in the rain 🤬 .  Really like the jersey - if I had to be picky - it would be that some players appear to have had better pens than others.  No I just need to work out where to hang it...

Cant remember if there was an option to leave but if a sig was required then email the company and include the photo. Suggest compensation  dont give a figure . If they offer you something take it. Even freight refund is 70? Dollars. If no response email afl as they gave licence to company .

One of the signatures on mine is extremely faint.

Got my email last week for my signed guernsey... was really excited.  Tracking updated 11:50am Tuesday 'Onboard for delivery', 'Estimated arrival Tuesday 23/11'.  Even more excited.

 

3 days later... still waiting for it to arrive.  Pretty frustrating.

I went past the MCG shop to collect an order yesterday and they still had a decent amount of MFC premiership merch but had sold out of a number of items. Not many footy jumpers left except certain sizes from previous years which were on the discount rack, sold out of a few sizes of the kids mark knight tshirts etc. Apparently they sold a lot last week when the premiership cup was at the sports Museum hopefully the club gets a decent whack from that and it doesn't go straight to the AFL

The Demon Shop is obviously running on funes with the merch that is left there and even the AFL store has sold out of lots of stuff. My wife even ordered some demons pyjamas and boxers for christmas presents for the kids and my brother (not sure from where maybe cotton on) and the order couldn't be fulfilled as they'd sold out of all except one of the pyjama sizes.

Hopefully the club will be getting more merch in stock because they will make a killing even after Christmas and especially in the new year when we are back at the G round 1.

They would want to have plenty of stock on hand for December 5. They will make a killing. 

All frustrations aside the Premiership is a huge windfall for the club.

I agree but I have a feeling there won't be much more than what is already there at the moment. Not the club's fault as they would be having difficulty getting manufacturing orders filled but disappointing they may not be able to capitalise on this to the extent they otherwise could. Already a massive windfall for them though, I'd be interested in the updated figures and hopefully they get a cut from the MCG shop/AFL stores.

Similar experience with the "Premiership Greatness" framed, signed photo I ordered.

Courier just left it on the front door at my mum's place I had it delivered to.  When I checked my email, yes they had notified me it was on its way around the time it was delivered at 7:30am on a Saturday morning, but like I'm seeing that at that hour (and I'm actually in Brisbane, so that was 6:30am for me).  Got left on the front doorstep at 9am on a Saturday morning in broad sight of the footpath, with no-one signing to receive it.  Luckily, they took and emailed me a photo of where they had left it, so had it gone missing, I would hace provided this as evidence of their stupidity and requested full replacement.  Had my mobile No., but I received no phone call.

'Couriers Please' - please lift your F#@$ING game!

Couriers please and Memorabilia mob can expect a phone call from me as I have several others on the way and stuffed if I want this happening again.

This crap about about Signatures no longer required because of Covid. Yes they can sign for you BUT they must first talk to you and make sure your home.

Part 2....  Emailed both the distributor (EFM Logistics) and Official Memorabilia last night.  Very happy with the prompt response from Official Memorabilia - they were "incredibly frustrated" with the level of service from their logistics partner, enquired about damage and offered to repair the frame, board or jersey if damaged or if moisture has an effect in the future.   EFM on the other hand, apologised on behalf of the courier "for the inconvenience caused" 😑

Not sure if this topic already covered, but it was a heart-warming experience. I was in my local Warragul sports store the other day and was disgusted - but not surprised - to see all this merch from the big clubs but typically nothing for Melbourne. Went back a few days later to pick something up and told the sales guys I was disgusted there were lots of AFL jumpers but no Melbourne jumpers. His answer was that all Melbourne stuff was sold out.

It’s very disappointing. 
 

I ordered off the AFL store on 28 September and again on 5 October. Nothing has appeared after more than 7 weeks. 
 

FFS. 

Spirit Of Norm Smith, please No more Cursing although I do feel your pain.

Hope so.  When Norf won in the 90's they struggled to make a $ due to their small membership nos and pricing to fit.

Crows struggled too as in those days the Club had to cover the cost of travel and accommodation in Melbourne; or so they said.

But luckily for us the Dees supporters have come out of the woodwork (or if you are an Aliens fan they have come out of the ceiling) and snapped up all the cheese boards asap.

Ha anyone received their premier's beanie yet? Just working out if I send the club a hurry up email

I ordered mine on the 26/9 and have not received them. The merch store at the Australian Sports Museum at the MCG had plenty of them.

I sent an email to the other day by replying to my order confirmation email and did not receive a reply but the very next day I received a shipping notification email that something that I ordered from the club had shipped. I have no idea what items that delivery will contain as I have only received one full order ( 2 hoodies and a t-shirt) of 6 separate orders and two incomplete orders (cap & premiership guernsey).

    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.

    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
