Does anyone know whether this will be streamed live for those of us that live interstate?

Won’t be much to livestream aside from the speeches. I suggest they will put together a video of the day. Makes the most sense.

bloody BS we can’t get 75k Red&Bkue army swarming the G.. typical DA wankish behaviour 

What are you on about, there's no restrictions on numbers as of last week

I assume you'll be offering DA an apology for your outburst

Will there be any entertainment for kids while the game is on the screens?

That's what I'm wondering, will there be additional things like the regular family days they have? Or will we be confined to our seats while the game is replayed and then the presentation of players/coaches? Also will the replays be confined to the 2 screens at the ground? Or will there be large screens/projectors setup on the oval? Would be good to have some more info.

Yeah I'm not sure I'll bring the little ones if it's just the screen for 2 hours!

Pert's been really clear on this.

 

Its a replica , sort of, the best they can, of the GF day, and presentations etc at the end. For all of us who couldn't be there.

Carnivals are for Moomba. This is way too serious.

Well done MFC  and MCC

Lol OK mate

If that's all they're doing not sure as many will bother going as they expect. They should be making a day of it, having activities for the kids, merch tables setup etc with the game on screens around the oval/Yarra Park. It's a nice sentiment but just trying to replicate the GF experience will fall flat I think, especially if its just being played on the two MCG screens.

I believe that the sponsors will be there so I'm presuming giveaways (I'm hoping for a Jag). There will be entertainment at half time and other activities not sure if outside the ground.

I'm putting it out there...during the Premiership Dec 5 party when Clarry streams through the centre to kick his goal....it would be awesome if the entire crowd in unison went "BANG....BANG BANG BANG!"

Even more awesome that everytime Clarry kicks a goal moving forward the Dees fans in the crowd go "BANG....BANG BANG BANG!"

I hope they get James Harmes on stage to dance and do the Melbourne shuffle! 😁

I can't dance to save myself but I will definitely be dancing regardless!

The main aim is to get there to the MCG early to take a photo of my Dad and I holding that Premiership cup!

Would also be nice to hug Simon Goodwin and cry tears of joy and say thank you. But that might be a bit too much. I think he's already had plenty of that over the last few weeks.

watching the replay will be easy...

no one will bother until around 10 minutes into the third quarter and then it's 45 minutes odd of pure bliss.

Hopefully it's a nice day and one can wander in Yarra Park until the big moment

Funny I was thinking of arriving just before half time DJ. My grand daughters are dropping hints about going with me but the little one is too young she will be bored in about 15 mins. From what I read on the email the program looks a little sketchy. Not sure what to expect besides a replay of the game and presentation of players afterwards.

    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. 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
