Non members fo not get first option on tickets to Finals  ( first 3 finals games not GFinal) but the usual ration of tickets up to 8 or 10 for Members I think allows tickets to be bought for non members ( Correct me if I am wrong there as I never have bought other than for members. 

Non members have to purchase when GAdmission  tickets are on sale generally the next day.

GF tickets are dominated by our GFG and then a ballot I think of members without the GFG, for  the remaining allocation. The previous paragraph then is played out if any are remaining. 

Seems to me it would be easy to monitor the usage of Members tickets to keep a record for priority by the  club for allocation in order. 
 

You misunderstood my post.  "scrambling at the same designated time" meant at the time Ticketek make tickets available for each group. ie  Members will be scrambling for tickets at the same time as other members.  Non-members will be scrambling for tickets at the same time as other non-members, for the first 3 weeks of finals. 

That is the way it is for all ticket sales even H & A:  Tickets for members are available before ticket sales for non-members. 

I fully understand how GFG and ticket sales work!

For the club ticket allocation, there is no ballot for GF tickets.

If there are any GF tickets left after the GFG (Priority 1) allocation they are available for Priority 2, then Priority 3 etc members until the allocation is exhausted. 

Whatever priority GF a member is, they still have to 'scramble' via Ticketek to buy the tickets with other members in that priority group.

p.s. there were 10,250 public tickets at the smaller optus oval last year, so it's a substantial number

That was because McGowan locked out the east coast club, AFL, MCC members and sponsors. 

GF public tickets don't happen at the G.

i do remember in the past there was a sort of auction for the public (smallish number available) but that disappeared (don't remember when)

I've had a GFG membership for more than 20 years. As far as I know all clubs have a limit on how many GFG's they can sell. I'd think it would be a flat number eg 6k. Clubs must have a certain number of GF tickets available to their general members. I would doubt that clubs would differentiate ie there's just 2 groups - GFG members and 'ordinary' members. Things may be slightly different now that all sales are online.

There are definitely priority groups and I know that Richmond in 2017 prioritised members who had been members for longer periods of consecutive years.

Today at the game North declared they were closing in on 50,000 members. Why as Premiers can we only have 60,000 members. North bottom down the ladder and yet still can achieve 50,000 members. What is holding us back. MCC Members not taking up memberships?

That’s part of it - also memberships are not equatable anymore - some packages are 2 for 1 or for $50. We even had a 6 games for $66 membership a few weeks ago.

They’re meaningless numbers now. 

I have heard we are in a good spot financially from our 60k members…

They also had 300 people turn up and would have lost a mountain of cash turning the lights on at Marvel. So meh.

Surely a lot of pet memberships, 2x1 or 3x1 memberships in those NM numbers. C'mon how else can you explain a cellar dweller having more members than a finals contender (Bulldogs).

    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
