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.

Agree those last roars were scary loud snd Dees fans all jumped up on their toes !!!

Couldn't see a finals ticketing thread

Ticketing email from the club stating 10 tickets per membership. Can't remember it being like that in 2018, though it was another lifetime ago, so I'm probably mistaken.

Can anyone remind me: do we get the option of tickets in the trident area if our membership seating is there? If too many get 10 tickets that's a hell of a tight bay!

Exciting times!

You will not get a priority ability to select seats in trident/legends/redlegs areas.

But you will hopefully be able to select your bay - which may be where your reserved seats normally are, the below image is how the categories will be allocated and we will get around 75% of the bays. 

In finals both teams get 50% of seats in theory but they will give us more like they gave us more against geelong in 2018.

That's the right attitude.  I've rustled up 8 Dees supporters to come along - go dees!

Good to see people walking the talk. One could say, my daughter when she was little was forced to follow the Dees (born into that religion sort of thing)

Much to my family’s shame she not only became a vegetarian later on in life but worse still, an AFL atheist.

However she has agreed to support the cause and will be coming with me to the G next Friday.  And she also knows all too well if she isn’t noisy enough at the right times, she will be pinched. GO DEES!

I certainly hope you are correct 

Do you know why we would have got more of the allocation when we played Geelong ( who I am guessing would have had a fairly large membership base, perhaps bigger than us)

Secondly, sort of a comment and a question. I would dread getting a great seat and then rock up to the G and find myself surrounded by opposition supporters.  Is there a way to reduce the risk of this occurring?

In 2018 for the Geelong game we could get 2 tickets per membership barcode.   The story was they won't travel to the G/Marvel at night.

Given they have chosen their QF to be Sat afternoon there may be some truth in that story.

I have an issue with our fans coming to games to clap politely like they’re at a funeral

I've never been to a funeral where people clap, politely or otherwise.

I did attend the funeral of a well-known golfer and, as they were lowering the coffin into the ground, had to resist the temptation to yell out "Get in the hole!".

Went to a couple of music gigs this week (classical - the polite clapping type), instinctively clapped then winced in pain having forgotten about my broken finger. Rookie mistake. Whistled instead - went down well. No clapping tonight. VOICE ONLY PEOPLE!

I think it’s funny and important to make fun of yourself. I don’t have an issue with it. I have an issue with our fans coming to games to clap politely like they’re at a funeral or the theater. 
Get feral!

Too true, go absolutely bonkers. There's few times in life as an adult you can make a total nutjob of yourself and get away with it. This is everyone's chance.

    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.
