As repeated over and over, Melbourne has high fan to attendance and fan to membership ratios. We are not, and never have been, a fair weather supporter group. What you in fact asking for, is for us to be more fair weather - higher attendances in a post-flag year where we are in premiership contention again. And you can bet your bottom dollar we'd be accused of being fair weather had our attendances skyrocketed this year.

Not sure of your logic here. 🤔

MFC have just put out a response to members concerns about oppo supporters sitting in our dedicated seating area’s. It is requesting members not to transfer seats to non MFC patrons but I haven’t witnessed any non MFC patrons being challenged by MCC staff.!!

Quite a few Pies supporters in our area (N49) last game - annoyed the hell out of me (mainly because we lost). Personally I don’t have a huge problem with letting others use your tix…but curious to hear others’ thoughts…

The other key driver of noise & passion is demographic. I've covered this before but put simply - footy means more to those with less. It's a weekly highlight (for many, the key highlight) & an escape from the daily pressures. You can see this at Pies games, Blues games & Tigers games - there are swathes of grown men who rock up in pilly trackies, a 1999 bomber jacket & are incredibly vocal. You get the impression the footy is their key weekly outing.  

It's a cliche but our more affluent supporter base results in less passion - put simply, they've got a lot of other things to do.

We on this forum aren't the problem & by definition have some fanaticism.

Yeah it was like that in the Warne stand too. To the point where some obnoxious Pies fans were making a scene in the Hassett bar. Plenty of complaints were made that night hence the email.I don't have a major issue with it either but if it gets overdone then you lose a bit of the premium gloss I guess.

I don't mind, as long as we are winning. I had a really annoying one sitting right behind me, but I  wasn't compelled to complain to the club.

The last thing I want to do during a game is complain but many must have.

Unfortunately not being able to attend last nights game I can't fully judge how the turnout for our supporters was.

On TV it seemed that we actually outnumbered the Carlton supporters or maybe broke-even at the very least. Can anyone who went confirm this? It seemed like a good crowd from our bunch!

I was in AFL members so always hard to tell but my mum who was in MCC said it was probably 50:50. But the final seconds and final quarter you'd think the entire crowd was Melbourne.

I think much of the problem is that we're not a very loud supporter base. We were there last night and last week. We're just not big on big cheering. Finals should be different though.

I did seem to pick up that the cheers were a bit louder for the blues fans, especially after a goal the "yeahhhh" is really pronounced. They have one of the loudest crowds though.

But proud that we didn't get outnumbered, big tick.

2 weeks to sort yourselves out - no excuses for this one, let's see us pack the G in red and blue and drown out the Sydney blow-ins. We completely outnumbered Geelong and Hawthorn in 2018 I want another see of red and blue and to hear "Mellll-bourne" reverberating around the stadium.

Amen. 
No excuses. Let’s go!

I'm working, would much rather a holiday. At this stage I will only be able to make a semi-final or grandfinal, not that I'll be able to get seat for the granny anyway.

Of course not, coming back into Canberra airport at 3pm with a toddler and a pregnant wife is.

And yes, get whatever paraphernalia that gets you off your couch and to the game.

Lucky bastards.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    It's Game Day and after 2 losses on the trot the Dees must win against the Saints today at the MCG to keep in touch with the Top 4. A loss today will see them drop out of the Top 8 for the first time since 2020.

    HEAVEN OR HELL by The Oracle

    Clashes between Melbourne and St Kilda are often described as battles between the forces of heaven and hell. However, based on recent performances, it’s hard to get excited about the forthcoming match between these two sides. It would be fair to say that, at the moment, both of these teams are in the doldrums. The Demons have become the competition’s slow starters while the Saints are not only slow to begin, they’re not doing much of a job finishing off their games either. About the only th

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    POSTGAME: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Many warned that this was a danger game and the Demons were totally outclassed all game by a young Eagles team at Optus Stadium in Perth as they were defeated by 35 points.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.
