Can't wait, I'm sure it will be a fantastic day for all! If they can also replicate the GF day weather from Perth, that would be great.

man that's early, I was expecting a 3-6 type thing.

only 40K attending.  pity folks will have to miss out

Hmm I think the 40K is a number the club has considered to cover most Vic members.

We have quite a few members interstate and some Victorians wont go because it is the busy period before Christmas.

I will be surprised if any Victorian members who want to go miss out.

This is what sh1ts me. Boxing Day test can be full capacity, yet only 40k are allowed to turn up to the G 21 days prior?

Andrews’ and his health bureaucratic lackeys can all take a long walk off a very short pier.

I assume the club is waiting for the magic 90% double dose mark when crowd limits disappear in Victoria to make further announcements. 

We are currently tracking to hit that around 21/11.

 

Or Somyurek to completely snooker them and a need to change the news cycle.

Either way I don't care.

Let's all get there and celebrate.

Dont think afl members will be open and maybe mcc , depends where stage is . They will want ppl to face stage . Dont think there will be  general  seating on field , maybe for team families and past players sponsors . It will be seating in stand so they can trace if they have to . Im just happy we can be there.

The way I read it is the club is hoping to get 40,000 there, not a limit of 40k. They stated they want as many supporters as possible to attend. 

Correct. There is no mention anywhere of a cap. People read want they wanna read so they can get all angered and justifies certain angles.

Agreed - I think.

My reading of the DHHS instructions effective from 11.59 yesterday below is that crowd limits ceased last night at any event. Over 30,000 for outdoors ( that's us) just need a CovidSafe plan(also us). Double-vaxed only presumably.

".....All indoor and outdoor events with fewer than 30,000 fully vaccinated attendees can go ahead without restrictions, while outdoor events with more than 30,000 people attending have to publish a COVIDSafe plan...."

Nowhere in the article does it state it's capped at 40,000.  What the actually quote is "hopefully 40,000+ members and supporters".  It sounds more like they're predicting how may may be attending.  Given the club has 55,000 members, which includes interstate and overseas members, that's probably a fair prediction.  As of today there is no restriction on outdoor gatherings, and in fact there's nothing stopping the MCG filling the ground to 100,000 if they want to.  I'm predicting they'll be increasing from 80,000 to 100,000 capacity for Boxing Day soon.

While I am still going I must admit that as the time increases since GF day My enthusiasm is waning. I suspect there while be a number of members who will not turn up due to the weather, family activities before Christmas etc.

I wonder if the catering will be open 30k plus is a lot of hungry people at that time of the day after watching a full replay of the game.

If the bars and food outlets aren’t open I won’t be going that’s for sure

Genuine question how do you know that is where you will be sitting?

That's where i always sit when i go the G

(but to be clear i have no idea, was joking. I suspect they will only have the Olympic stand and perhaps part of the southern stand open - and of course the members area)

    A LITTLE MAGIK by George On The Outer

    With the game against Carlton all but lost, there was little chance the Demons could pull this one from out of the fire … with a little bit of magiK!   MagiK with a “K” in the form of Kysaiah Pickett, who miraculously managed to get foot to ball in the dying seconds to secure the win for the Demons. Along with plenty of magiK from Jake MelKsham during the game. Marking the ball while lying on his back, dancing through a bevy of Carlton backmen to score and then marking among three tall

    GREY INTO WHITE by KC from Casey

    The rains came as predicted to Casey Fields on Sunday along with a fair lashing of wind that made for the type of game that you expect in such inhospitable conditions - a grim, dour festival of scrappy football made for strong-bodied sides such as the undefeated competition leaders. And so it came to pass that the Casey Demons were able to trample over Carlton’s VFL side in the final half of their Round 21 match up to maintain their undefeated record for 2022. The victory under grey skies w

    DOWNFALL? by Whispering Jack

    Half a season ago, Saturday night’s Round 22 match up between Melbourne and Carlton would have been looked upon as a mouthwatering contest to determine positions at the top of the AFL mountain in the lead up to an exiting finals series for both clubs. However, this once much-anticipated contest is today considered almost as a consolation event between two of the most disappointing teams in the competition. At least the Blues have some sort of excuse for their downfall — they have been dogge

    HORSING AROUND by George On The Outer

    Before the match it was claimed that Collingwood were a “one trick pony” side.  Well that one trick worked very well against Melbourne, as they extended their winning streak to 11 for the season. Meanwhile, the Demons continued to horse around with structures which simply haven’t been working. The one tall forward option with resting rucks failed yet again, in an almost identical manner to the game against the Bulldogs recently.  93 more possessions, 65 inside 50 entries 24 more than the op

    THE BUBBLE by The Oracle

    "I feel like we've got more than enough experience in close games. It'd be nice to win one by five or six goals and have that pulse lower a little bit late in games, but that's not our story." — Scott Pendlebury on the eve of his team’s forthcoming Round 21 game against Melbourne. When you read words such as these, you know it’s time for Melbourne fans to be humble. The old enemy is up and about while our mantle of invincibility has vanished into thin air. A Magpie win against the Demons wo

    ANCHORS AWEIGH! by George on the Outer

    So came the cry from the Dockers as the S.S. Fremantle set sail with the hopes of all of their supporters on board on the mighty ship. Their task was to do nothing more than to defeat the Melbourne side and a top four position on the ladder was assured. The problem for them was that their leaky boat came up against the mighty battleship - Team Demon and it didn’t take long after they left port for their vessel to develop a multitude of leaks. The first salvo was fired by First Officer

    SWEET SIXTEEN by KC from Casey

    The game was an uneven match up from the very beginning. The Casey Demons, representing an alignment between the reigning premiers Melbourne and the outer southeastern expansion area centred around a sprawling Cranbourne with its rapid population growth and the stand alone Northern Bullants from the inner north who sit at the foot of the VFL table. With 14 AFL listed players and a couple more having experience at the elite level opening with the breeze at their backs, the result was inevitable.

    THE HUNGER GAME by Whispering Jack

    The game may well have taken place a day short of ten weeks ago but the atmospherics surrounding Friday night’s match between Melbourne (then Narrm) and Fremantle are light years apart from those that prevailed when the teams last faced off the MCG in late autumn. On one hand, the Demons were in the midst of a 17 game winning spree that included a drought breaking premiership victory. On the other, the Dockers were coming off a six goal thrashing at Optus Stadium in teeming rain against a then s

    DOG-TIED by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons were extended early against rivals Footscray VFL in their matchup played in wet and greasy conditions at VU Whitten Oval on Saturday but, after establishing their authority in the second quarter, they were able to tie up their opponents at the end to maintain their undefeated run which now stands at 15.  The game began under grey threatening skies and the wet conditions turned the game into a tight slog with scoring kept down to a minimum. The Demons were held goalless agai

    DOG DAY by George On The Outer

    It is said that every dog has its day and that was certainly the case when the Western Bulldogs defeated Melbourne under the roof at the Docklands on Saturday night.   While the Dogs were certainly at the very top of their game, the same couldn’t be said of the Demons. All around the ground, dismal individual performances and dismal team performances were the order of the day.  Fans should have been worried right from the start as the game turned into a goal-fest. This is not their team’

    RAINING CATS & DOGS by Whispering Jack

    Despite winning their game in the Red Centre at the weekend, the consensus among the pundits is that Melbourne’s days in the sun are over. Ten rounds into the season, they were the competition’s top dogs and regarded virtually unbeatable but their recent form (three wins from the last seven games) has put them well below par, perilously clinging onto second spot on the ladder with storm clouds on the horizon. The air of invincibility that once surrounded them is gone and the Demons face a t

    THE KOZZY SHOW by George On The Outer

    Q: Melbourne is playing Port Adelaide at Traeger Park, Alice Springs and once again, it doesn’t have a properly functioning forward line — so from where were the goals going to come?   A: Kysaiah Pickett.     In a one man show in front of his adoring fans, he racked up six majors to give the Demons the edge in the game and to finally run out winners by 14 points.     The result could well have been very different without his efforts with Melbourne failing to score a major
