You along with another 50,000 members, then there’s the lapsed members who’ll want to be there.

Even if the flag unfurling is scheduled against a low pulling opposition crowd (gws, gc, freo), there’d still be at least 60,000 at the game just to see the flag unfurled.

I love the Friday night game concept! All AFL fans will tune for a real game after yet another Carlton Richmond blockbuster fizzer.

Could be another fizzer if the boys take up where they left off.
And there's nothing to say they won't.

I would rather play a team coming off the same AFL mandate rest period and training schedule (Bulldogs) than one that has had over a month more Training loads and system based training development.

Who iam i kidding who cares who we play, the players will want a W that night and send out a msg to the League that we want to live it all again in 2022.

Demons are the heavyweight champions who made the other premiership ‘contenders’ last finals campaign look like a bunch of bantam weights.  When the “live” show arrives at the ‘G’ next season enjoy. Come rain or shine whoever.

The AFL is averse to playing GF replays  in round 1, so while it may happen it’s no certainty.

Would be a fantastic way to open the season though- Our first Friday night game at the G since 2019.

Alternatively we could play the Cats and stuff their confidence early in the season.

Love v. Bombers. 90,000 crowd. Ticketed. $$$$s. Friday night. Bang bang bang bang !!!!!

As our home game though. I don’t think we have had a hole game v these druggies since before they were caught out.

Yes home games of course to unfurl the flag.  Big 90000 back at the G 🏆

Adelaide will have massive improvement this year. Burgess is a huge get. 

I think (hope) it will take a couple of seasons for his benefits to come thru.

We are the away team for both QB and Anzac eve so no $$ there.

Need Essendon and Carlton home games at the MCG in the first six rounds preferably. (While their fans think they have a chance in 2022)

TBH Bulldogs won't deliver  a high number of away fans which is where you make the money. Also it will get its own Friday night status when played. Why would you share that TV coverage with a Thursday night game

Spot on. The smart decision commercially. Which pays the bills doesn't it?  Could guarantee a 90K crowd possibly with the above suggested teams.

I’m really hoping there’s been some discussion on this as both years we’ve been home teams we’ve been screwed out of good crowds. Maybe not so much the ANZAC eve last year but certainly QB we barely would’ve got two 5 cent pieces to rub together. That’s on top of the Alice Springs games being taken away. 

Either way we do need to maximise our exposure to get the best $$$$ we can get.

Sorry Cassie, but this is old MFC mentality. Relax. We are now the reigning premiers; the best footy club in the world. We got there with a group who has faced every challenge without qualm. If the AFL schedules us to play Footscray and Geelong at the same time, on the moon, I would give us a sniff.

Bring it on.

A lot of great teams have faltered in the first round. It take a while to get into gear again. Remember we beat reigning premiers North in the opening round in 1997 then won only 3 more games.

Richmond have been slow starters each year after their premierships, the only thing that’s ensured them getting the W in round one is that they keep playing the Blues. 

I think facing the dogs definitely has the advantage of coming up against a team that’s had the exact same preparation time.

QB unlikely away given we haven't had a chance to do it at home for 2 years.

If we played dogs first game would it lead to us playing them twice? Probably wouldn't matter but I'd prefer the double game against a bottom side.

One thing for sure Dees fans from everywhere will come out of the woodwork to see the flag unfurled. So looking fwd to 2022 season with the curse being crushed. Back to back baby.

There already is 😆

I'm all for this idea, I think it will have a fantastic atmosphere to it and would be a great way to kick off season 2022.

I don't understand how people are concerned that this Melbourne won't bring the heat, but somehow the Doggies will.

Given our 2021 season, and how overwhelmingly good we were in the finals we should all have complete and utter faith that this team will perform no matter the occasion, venue, team or time.

Any team. Anywhere. Anytime.

Go Dees!

Haven't you heard?

We sang a song they like, and the Dogs are furious!

Can't see us beating them until we apologise.

Dogs by 81 points.

That’s the thing. If any round of the season is one where they need to size up opponents and readjust and test the opponents it’s round 1

Reckon Daniel gets a rough trot here.

And Daniel probably just called him out on it rather than the stand over tough guy act it's portrayed as.

    JUNGLE KINGS by George On The Outer

    The top of the table Brisbane Lions came into their game against Melbourne thinking they were kings of the AFL Jungle. However, by game’s end they were shown to be toothless, as the rampant Demons gave them a lesson about the exact level you have to be at to justify that mantle.  The first quarter saw Brisbane squander some easy chances in front of goal, which kept Melbourne within striking distance and, as a result, the Lions led by a mere goal. Of course, it could have been so much d

    A STEP FORWARD? by The Oracle

    The winds of change have blown through the Melbourne Football Club over the past month or so as the team previously known for applying relentless pressure on opponents dramatically fell from its pedestal to a low not seen for some three years. This is a team that had the luxury of going through last season with one of the healthiest lists in the competition. And that health was not only reflected in a weekly injury list that revealed very few key players missing, but importantly, even fewer

    HUMBLE PIE by George on the Outer

    Seventeen wins in a row followed by a trio of losses.  The invincible Demon juggernaut was simply humbled by the Pies in that third loss, as once again they gave up an early three goal plus lead, to be over-run in the end. Is it loading? Perhaps. Is it the loss of players? Perhaps More likely, they are a combination of the two. Certainly, we have seen the side take an early lead in all of these games only to fade as reflected on the scoreboard where Melbourne has been outscored

    EARLY FREEZE by KC from Casey

    If the publicity ahead of Queens Birthday Monday was all about the Big Freeze and the game to follow the pre-game entertainment then the hardy group that braved the country’s cold snap to travel out to the windy plains beyond Cranbourne were given an early taste of what was to come in the Casey's big 52-point win over Collingwood VFL. The day started well with the Demons comprehensively beating the VFLW Magpies in the curtain-raiser elimination final and then their male counterparts donned

    Melbourne’s fortunes took a dramatic turn for the worst on the day the Anthony Albanese was elected as Prime Minister. Since that fateful day, Steven May pinged his hamstring early in the match against the Dockers, Harry Petty came off the ground in consecutive games feeling the worse for wear, it was revealed that Tom McDonald’s foot was in messy shape, the Herald Sun exclusively reported that two years ago, Demon committee members exchanged emails critical of the team after it lost a game by 5

    BANGED UP by George On The Outer

    Melbourne v Sydney. City v City. Two top eight sides fighting for finals spots.  Sydney having beaten the Demons in ten of their last twelve encounters.    In what would turn out to be one of the most hotly contested games for the club in 2022, the physical damage to players was probably the deciding factor in the end.   Once again, Melbourne lost Tom McDonald pre-game to a yet unspecified foot injury.  More importantly was how much his work up the ground and bullocking influ

    TEN by KC from Casey

    The slippery surface of the MCG was a minor detail for the Casey Demons as they waltzed away from the Sydney Swans to record their tenth win on end in their Saturday afternoon curtain raiser. The Demons conceded the first goal of the game before recording the next three (two to Sam Weideman) to hold a 16 point lead at the first break before the Swans pegged that back to a mere three points at half time. Casey dominated the third term with four goals to nil and thereafter the Swans’ resistan

    THE COMEBACK by Whispering Jack

    How will Melbourne react to losing a game after such a long time since tasting defeat? That question is on everybody’s lips after the complete collapse of the team in the second half against Fremantle last week. When Bayley Fritsch missed his shot at goal 23 minutes into the second term, the Demons were 30 points ahead but from that point onward they were comprehensively overwhelmed as their structures fell apart all over the park. Unlike what occurred on a number of occasions during their

    SURVIVAL MODE by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons managed to survive a day of challenges that in many ways mirrored their AFL counterpart Narrm from the previous day but Casey emerged undefeated from their Round 10 encounter with Frankston at Skybus Stadium. Like the Demon seniors they were undermanned and lost players due to late withdrawals, went through an arm wrestle in the first quarters, took over the game in the second to set up a big lead before a late goal gave hope to their opponent and limped through a last half

    DEES-MANTLED by George On The Outer

    Well the streak has finally ended, but in the worst possible way, when Fremantle absolutely dismantled Melbourne to record an emphatic 38 point win. This ended the 17 game winning streak of the Demons, but worse to report was that Melbourne led the game by nearly 5 goals in the second quarter, before the Dockers banged through 10 straight goals. In fact they kicked 13 goals to 1 from that point just before half time. So what happened?  Melbourne aren’t accustomed

    DISMANTLE by The Oracle

    The Flagmantle dynasty has been in train for less than half a season but on Saturday evening at the MCG its hopes are set to be derailed when it meets the team from Narrm. If you’re still living back in the days before the start of the 2022 AFL season then my opening comment probably makes very little sense. This is because very few people had heard of Narrm at the time and most folk could not then have anticipated the AFL’s early season rise of the Fremantle Dockers whose fans went into r

    THE CALM OF NARRM by George On The Outer

    In a fitting opening to the Doug Nicholls Round, the haunting voice of Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu spread calm around a near empty, misty Docklands stadium. Meanwhile, the Narrm players, quietly warming up pre-game, seemed to take on the same calmness for their upcoming task against North Melbourne.   Sure, this was the top of the ladder premiership side playing the lowly cellar dweller, but this Demons side is now one who just quietly go about their job, and slowly ever so slowly and ca
