Dees win $1million McClelland Trophy

I think it’s Crows v Roos this week. Is it the Saints we’re barracking for against the Lions? 

If trophy is decided on percentage (rather than split amongst teams tied), a win for us & Lions loss virtually wraps it up. I suspect it’ll come down to that last game though.

Is there an updated ladder for this? It's not even on the AFL website from what I can see. There's a chance that the % difference between us and Brisbane may well be too great even if they beat us in Round 10.

The women's games are worth 8 points, so, presuming Dees and Lions win this week, the current 4-point difference means % will be irrelevant in that million dollar game.

There's still a very outside chance Pies could 'Bradbury'. Our good % would help there.

nah aflw is 8 points. if bris beat us in rd10 they go 4 points up

filth could draw even too, but we have them on %

if filth draw even with us it means we lost rd10 therefore bris win trophy by 4 points

Got take care of business against Freo first but geeze that final round will be a big game for a lot of reasons.

Would be nice to see the blokes get behind the girls, but one sign of the poor culture at the club has been how little our men seem to care about the girls.

I wouldn't discount the Saints against the Lions this week. Lions have coughed up games against pies and tiges so saints are a chance. That said i reckon it'll come down to our game v the Lions. We beat them in the granny on their home deck last year so we have nothing to fear. huge game.

True. I wouldn’t be putting my hard earned on the saints but they’re in with a chance of finals so they’ll have a go.

Sorry.
The Dr Mclelland Trophy has been around for Decades. 
long before the Women’s Comp. 
it was originally based on U19 Reserves and Seniors 

There should have been a Pot of Gold up for grabs a long time ago

It was around back in the day when it was based on the combined H&A results of the under 19s, the reserves and the seniors. Of course that wasn’t sustainable because you need equal number of teams for it to be fair. Fast forward to now where for the first time, we have 18 teams in both the AFL and the AFLW.

Back in the Day, each VFL Side had U19 Reserves and Seniors. Back in the Days when September had crowds of 115,000 jammed into The MCG 

The Good Doctor was awarded back in those days, and there should have been a Financial Prize for the winner

How do they split cash, everyone gets a cheque for $11,000 - $13,000 (1Mil/~75 m+f players?) Coaches get any splash?

From my understanding the money goes to the W only, split amongst players and coaching staff. That’s what I heard on Thursday at a W function. I could be wrong, but geez, I hope I’m right. Average W wage this year is $60,000, up from $42,000 last season. Methinks the M are sufficiently paid already.

Of course there should always have been a $ prize. It’s quite a feat.

Any Winnings should go to The MFC So we can stop selling Home Games during a Season, giving our opponents a direct advantage

I might be wrong but I think it then went to the AFL minor premiers until it's rejuvenation in the current format.

Seems I was wrong. The million dollars goes to the MFC to be divvied up as they see fit.

We no longer sell the Alice game just for the $. That used to be the reason but it’s not so anymore. For one, the NT govt is one of our larger sponsors. And I’m not gonna go into how much it means for the community there. I’ve done so before and have regretted it, suffice to say I’m not as thick-skinned as I need to be.

I thought it had to be allocated under the soft cap between both men and women? 

You’re probably right. I don’t know how it’s distributed. Up until 10 minutes ago I thought it went to the W only.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    It's Game Day and after 2 losses on the trot the Dees must win against the Saints today at the MCG to keep in touch with the Top 4. A loss today will see them drop out of the Top 8 for the first time since 2020.

    HEAVEN OR HELL by The Oracle

    Clashes between Melbourne and St Kilda are often described as battles between the forces of heaven and hell. However, based on recent performances, it’s hard to get excited about the forthcoming match between these two sides. It would be fair to say that, at the moment, both of these teams are in the doldrums. The Demons have become the competition’s slow starters while the Saints are not only slow to begin, they’re not doing much of a job finishing off their games either. About the only th

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    POSTGAME: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Many warned that this was a danger game and the Demons were totally outclassed all game by a young Eagles team at Optus Stadium in Perth as they were defeated by 35 points.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.
