They usually sell the DVD on its own with the alternate commentaries though - I reckon the initial release doesn't have them because they are fast-tracked straight after the game

My wife is a cats supporter and has the 2009 DVD with alternate commentaries as well as the Victory Pack.

Yeah Gonzo my brother is a Cats fan and I was always really envious of those DVD packs. It's definitely what I've been striving for!

Well that’s good. I didn’t want the fix replay cut and pasted. Last question, as I’m felling groggy (meds) does it have the halftime show?

There's no half-time show or segments between quarters. After each quarter, it zooms out to the whole stadium, there's about 10 seconds of music, and then it's straight to the first bounce of the next quarter.

Hold on a second I just want to make sure I got this 100% correct. If you get the victory pack it is just the GF that comes in blue ray BUT you get the alternate commentaries that you don't get from the single GF dvd? Apologies in advance.

My victory pack arrived in the mail today and at a quick glance:

  • The GF is a DVD, not blu ray
  • The GF has the commentary options of Channel 7, Triple M, 3AW, and SEN
  • The season highlights disc runs for 1.5 hours and has someone hosting it, reflecting on the season, and a sit-down with Jack Viney before starting to go in to the highlights from each round

Looks like a great package of material in my opinion, exactly what I was after!

Sounds great, bar the DVD in place of Blu Ray.

Surely they will bring out the high def version in time for Chrissy?

...after all, it's 2021, not 1964 - after 57 years of pain, please give it to us in high def!!

What a crock. I saw serveral AFL dvds that offered several commentaries advertised on the back. 
Where did you get it? I’ve almost given up getting mine this month

Over a month and still haven’t got it. Got my victory pack from jbhifi just now

what do you mean by high definition?  The dvd should be 1080 which is hi-def,  The blue-ray would probably just be 4k upscaled from 1080 as I don't think there would be 4K cameras at the ground. 

EDITED: correction DVD best format would be 720HD and heavily compressed. It could also be less than that. I think the cameras at the ground would be 1080HD so the 4K blue-ray would still be upscaled from 1080 but the quality would still be much greater than the DVD

I got the victory pack yesterday from J B Hi Fi,  all three finals PLUS seasons highlights DVD $75 bucks. I have an 80 inch 4 k T.V compatible, 4 K Blu Ray and a Yamaha 7.1 System with two sub woofas and  Dolby atmos in the roof!! The standard def DVD works VERY well. BUT the BLU RAY version should be something else again🤩

DVD is always 720x576i SD maximum (US DVDs are 720x480i SD). The Grand Final DVD is no exception to this.

The Blu-ray of the Grand Final should be 1920x1080p HD (so a step up from what was broadcast which is 1920x1080i).

There's no 4K Blu-ray proposed as far as I can see (even though I'd like that)...

yeah, i just realised my memory of dvds is so very rusty, Haven't had one for more than 10 years

and yeah most were 576i which is SD, though they did do some at 720 (heavily compressed) according to google so it is possible.....but certainly not 1080i or p

The dvd season highlights package, sad to say, is very ‘meh’. Putting it kindly, Jack Viney does his best. Frustratingly short and choppy video reviews of each game. Considering what it could have been…..

I’m not sure if this has been covered before but - DVD Land is selling a complete MFC season DVD box set  for $149.95 containing every game of the season including the grand final in high def. and special commentary. 
Does anyone have it?

As the proud owner of 3 blu ray players (one used to play very high quality music over hi fi system) I think I may invest in this set!

Not out until December (and cheaper at https://www.ezydvd.com.au/DVD/AFL-Premiers-2021-Melbourne-Complete-Season-Collection-Limited-Release/dp/6225238 to boot)...

(What's not clear either is whether the whole lot is in HD, or just the grand final. I suspect the latter because it's a 27 disc set. I imagine this would comprise 22 H&A round DVDs, QF DVD, PF DVD, GF DVD, GF Blu-ray and highlights DVD...)

The season highlights is amazing. Even if we hadn’t won the grand final, this would be worth purchasing. The games were so memorable.

The KRock call of the 2009 last quarter is immense if you're a Cats fan.

Is KRock the old 3GL? or similar?  if so the prelim final call would be like

Bounce of the ball, Stanley up high, Dangerfield clearly held, play on, knocked forward, great defensive work by Henderson,........goal to Melbourne

Bounce of the ball, Stanley up even higher, Selwood clearly held, play on, knocked forward, great defensive work by Bews,........goal to Melbourne.  Special Comments : I think the Dees have shot their bolt.

You will need to watch 22 only ( not watching the losses and draw)

Was talking to a Richmond supporting mate who tells me they have like a directors cut with audio from the coaches box etc while the game is played.
Sounded awesome.
Be great if we come up with stuff like that. 

I'm also a huge fan of what the yanks do with a show called "Americas Game."
They interview players, talk through Pre-season, each game and their play-off series culminating in the Superbowl.
They've done it every season from the 60s and is brilliant for sportfans.

Can you-tube a few different ones.
With my favourite being the 1981 49ers which reminded me of us. (which I can't find)
Another that amused me highly was 2007 NY Giants if ya wanna have a look.

1976 Raiders.

    NIGHTMARES OF NARRM by Whispering Jack

    Narrm Time has arrived in our city as the Melbourne Football Club takes the name Narrm Football Club as part of the 2022 AFL Sir Doug Nicholls Round. This week will see the reigning premier pay respect to the region the club calls home — the land of the Wurundjeri people and their culture, language and memory. The team will wear its indigenous guernsey designed by Wurundjeri/Dja Dja Wurrung artist Ky-ya Nicholson Ward and what better way to wear it than with a win over North Melbourne Football C

    WESTERN SUNSET by George on the Outer

    It was the top of the table Demons who inflicted their highest ever defeat of the Eagles, thereby ensuring that the sun has finally set on their long dynasty out West.  The final margin was 74 points but it was the final quarter barrage of seven goals which definitively signalled to the meagre West Coast opposition and supporters exactly who was in control.  That was after a similar six goal to one opening quarter, but hey … why not boo and complain about every decision that went aga

    ON THE RAMPAGE by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons had it easy on a windy day under sunny skies at the home of the VFL Kangaroos at Arden Street on Sunday. They caught the hapless Roos who were badly depleted by injury on the hop and disposed of them with little trouble. It was the second time in consecutive seasons that Casey inflicted a 100 plus points defeat on the Roos who had no answers for an opponent on the rampage. When the game started, Casey was without three important forward line components in Mitch Brown, Ka

    RISING TO PHOENIX by William from West Perth

    On Sunday, when the Melbourne Football Club returns to the scene of the club’s most famous victory of the 21st Century, the feeling out there on the ground will most certainly be different. The dying moments of the night of 25 September, 2021 at Optus Stadium marked a team rising to the level of a Phoenix, bathing in the cheers and adulation from an adoring crowd in the wake of their premiership victory after so many years of hardship and desolation. This time around they can expect a main

    TO THE SWORD by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons closed off their game against the Southport Sharks with a comfortable 30-point win off the back of a monster six goal opening term in which they put the Southport Sharks to the sword and kept them scoreless.  Despite losing Toby Bedford to AFL medical sub duty, Majak Daw and Bailey Laurie, the Demons still fielded a strong list of 13 MFC players and also managed to blood two more local newcomers in Tyler Edwards and Tom Macrae after adding four debutants last week.

    NO HEAVEN FOR SAINTS by George on the Outer

    Just when St.Kilda thought it was heading toward Saintly Heaven in Season 2022, it was brought crashing to earth quickly by the ruthless Demons machine. It wasn’t a long drawn out process before the Saints discovered how fragile they were. The Demons simply took the game apart in the first quarter piling on four goals against a paltry three  behinds. Even when Membrey was going to score a major right on the ¼ time bell from 15m out in front, he failed to bypass the outstretched hands of Har

    COVID PROOF FENCE by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne fans breathed a sigh of relief last Saturday when their team managed to beat Hawthorn and the Covid19 outbreak that left it without coach Simon Goodwin and five premiership players – Luke Jackson, Kysaiah Pickett, Tom Sparrow, Harrison Petty and Alex Neal-Bullen. The 10-point win was meritorious not just because the Demons overcame the loss of the coach and key players but also due to the way in which they survived the tension surrounding the club in the 72 hours leading up to the

    YIPS by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons overcame a bout of goal kicking yips and a last quarter Box Hill Hawks comeback to record a thrilling 7 point away from home victory on Sunday. With senior affiliate Melbourne fighting a Covid breakout and some injury concerns to their listed players, Casey turned to youth and called up locals Zac Andrewartha, Matthew Johnson and Harvey Neocleous to join Matt Buntine, a local product who was part of the inaugural GWS Giants list.  The team made a slow start but took co

    DEPLETED NOT DEFEATED by George on the Outer

    With Covid 19 ravaging the club, forcing the absence of five players from last week and some more premiership players still sidelined or returning after isolating, it was certainly a depleted Melbourne side that turned up to front Hawthorn in their Round 7 match up at the MCG. Normally, when a team loses ¼ of its soldiers, you would expect a less than favourable result but after the Hawks opened up a 2 goal lead in the opening minutes (and indeed, it could have been more) the Demon machine

    NO COMEBACKS by The Oracle

    Q:  How do the Hawks come back after being 32-0 early, leading at every interval and then conceding nine goals in the last quarter to lose to the Swans by 41 points in the comfort and safety of their second home down in Launceston? A:  If they’re playing the Demons at the G off a five-day break, there are no comebacks. They simply won’t come back! That’s the short form preview of the Melbourne v Hawthorn match up at the Home of Football this weekend. That is not to dismiss the you

    TIGERS OUTPOINTED by George On The Outer

    Normally when one side outpoints the other, it is because of an emphatic victory.  Against Richmond in the annual ANZAC Eve Blockbuster, the win by Melbourne was anything but emphatic, as they managed to miss the “big sticks” an incredible 22 times!   The groans from around the ground as the Demons failed to put the Tigers away, eventually turned into ironic cheers for each successive point on the scoreboard. However, this irony from the fans was only possible because Melbourne had compl

    MOMENTS OF DOUBT by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons maintained their undefeated run and top spot on the VFL ladder after a bruising game against Richmond VFL at Punt Road yesterday but it wasn’t without its moments of doubt. The team was greeted by clear windless weather and sunny skies at Tigerland, a far cry from the prevailing conditions at their fortress in outer suburban Melbourne at Casey Fields. Things looked very bright in the  early part of the game when Jimmy Munro got things under way with the opening goal from a
