Ticketek have just released a whole heap of areas up for purchase now so looks like it won't be as big as predicted. Hope we get a bunch of last minuters jumping on board. 

They were always going to eventually put the back of Q49-Q55 on sale at some point.

The other areas of the ground that they have release have about 30 tickets available for purchase.

It will still be north of 75K.

We had 91k in 2018 against an interstate team when we played Geelong.

So doable.

Correct. It’s easier to get to Sydney

Does anyone know the crowd size tonight ?

Was it just me, or was there a lack of atmosphere at the game? The crowd roused slightly when we kicked 3 on the trot, but that was it. A bit disappointing really.

78k

I thought the cheer squad did an exceptional job all game, and the crowd lifted when we got going early in the 2nd and 3rd. The problem was if you take those bursts out we got comprehensively beaten. Not the crowds fault.

78k.

The crowd was fine. Sydney had way more to cheer about and outside of bursts we were sunk in our seats watching a pretty average outing. 

Swans silenced the crowd. Pretty simple really.

Not blaming the crowd or the cheer squad. It was just a weird vibe given it was our first final at home since 2018.

Agree 100% the whole side from the punt road goals to the end of the members was rocking early in the third particularly after the Fritsch and sparrow goals.

Yep I've said it in the other thread, I thought the crowd was pathetic (where we were sitting anyway). There were a few of us trying to gee up the crowd but they were just sitting there like stunned mullets. No idea how to generate some atmosphere, you don't just cheer when a goal is kicked you cheer to rev the team up and create some energy, create some sense of hostility for the opposition. Melbourne supporters just sit there mute.

Edit - It was a good turnout though, a touch under 80k is a great result I think.

The biggest roar of hositlity of the night was when Harmes flattened Lloyd. Felt massive for them.

It's hard to gee up people who don't want to be gee'd 🙁

The problem seemed to be that whenever we gained momentum we made unforced errors or gave away stupid free kicks that let them back in for easy goals. Maddening to watch and took away our energy.!!

Glad to hear someone with a clue comment. The “we just sit there” stereotype is a myth. 2018 was as loud as I can remember. The game style tonight from both sides made for a snore fest. Stark contrast to last night’s Richmond v Bris match.

For mine the experience with the crowd was mixed.

Some really loud and vocal ferals, some others more calm but riding the wave on the 2nd and 3rd. And even the ones sitting next to me that gave me the looks every time I jumped of my seat or booed the old flopper Franklin.

Not like 2018 but much better than your average crowd from this year's H&A

Difficult to get the crowd enthused when you are comprehensively beaten for 3 qtrs. 

Comprehensively beaten? It was 2 goals the difference at 3/4 time. I think some Melbourne supporters have forgotten they're not their to watch the Harlem Globetrotters. Your role as a supporter is to support not sit on your hands and only cheer when something good or exciting happens.

The crowd last night was weak as [censored].

    BLINK OF AN EYE by The Oracle

    In the year 2022, we learned that the fine between ultimate success in sport and failure can be measured in the blink of an eye. The Melbourne Football Club began the year where it had left off in 2021 - as the powerhouse of the AFL men’s competition.  They steamed towards the halfway mark of the season taking all before them until their winning streak of ten in a row (17 overall since the latter part of the premiership season) came to a crushing end with consecutive losses at the hands of

    CHANGES 2022 Part 03 by The Oracle

    Part Three - Comparing apples with pomegranates by The Oracle One of the truly pointless exercises after each year’s draft is the game over which club “won” the period in question. The reality is that there is no winner or loser at the time and it’s only years further down the track when a full assessment of how the picks turn out can be made, that the winning hand is revealed. And the draft results cannot be considered in isolation; you need to look at where each club stood before the

    GRAND NEW FLAG by Meggs

    Daisy was at pains to tell everyone who asked that the grand final story was NOT the Daisy Pearce story.  She wanted people to focus on the Melbourne Football Club, our wonderful players and non-playing teammates, her legacy buddy head coach Mick Stinear, the assistant coaches, the Club volunteers, the Board, the administrators, #DeeArmy, all supporters, in fact anyone who bleeds for the red and the blue.  But it is also a bit about the pioneer, role model, mother who is Daisy Pearce

    EYES ON THE PRIZE by Meggs

    The Stinear/Pearce partnership has evolved over the 7 AFLW seasons and they have built a team with talented, committed footballers who play for each other and execute a highly entertaining brand of footy. On Sunday can a premiership be added to this legacy? This may well be the last time we see Daisy in the mighty red and blue as she contemplates her start date for a coaching role ‘Down at Kardinia Park’.  Last week’s sensational sealer in the Prelim showed everybody that Daisy could s

    DAISY’S DEMON DRIVE by Meggs

    On a blustery Saturday afternoon when the conditions affected marking skills and the ball bounced unpredictably, the Mighty Dees stuck fat against a determined Kangaroos outfit to break away with two final quarter goals to none to win AFLW Preliminary Final 2 by 17 points — an all-time high winning margin between these two teams.  From the outset it was a fiercely fought contest with Melbourne unable to find the ball in space. North really amped up their one-percenters an

    NOT A MOMENT TO MISS by Meggs

    The AFLW Season 7 fixture was carefully crafted to purposely handicap the better teams and give the expansion and developing sides an easier draw.  Nonetheless, this weekend’s Preliminary Finals will showcase the Lions, Demons, Crows and Roos, teams widely accepted as the best 4 in the competition.   In Friday night’s Prelim 1 the minor premiers, Brisbane, will start warm favourites at home against Adelaide.   On Saturday afternoon at Ikon Park, Prelim 2 between Melbourne and North is

    STICK TO YOUR GUNS by Meggs

    The Dees convincingly overcome the fast-starting reigning-premiers Adelaide to win by 21 points in a fiery Qualifying Final match at Ikon Park on Friday evening.     In that first quarter Adelaide jumped out of the blocks kicking their first goal inside 20 seconds finishing with 3 goals to nil. All was quiet at Ikon Park.     Melbourne, having easily outplayed lesser opponents over the past six weeks took time to ratchet up their intensity.  But, by mid to late first quarter, the Dees be

    HEAVYWEIGHTS by Meggs

    AFLW heavyweights Melbourne and Adelaide kick off the AFLW Season 7 Final Series with a massive Qualifying Final clash at Ikon Park this Friday night at 7:10pm.  The game promises to be a cracker.   Last season’s Grand Final combatants last met in Round 1where Melbourne came away with a strong 18-point victory at Glenelg Oval. The Dees will be hoping to replicate the result and move directly to the Preliminary Final.    While Adelaide may not have been as intimidating this season as in p

    MISSED IT BY THAT MUCH by Meggs

    Congratulations to Daisy’s Dees on a huge 78-point one-sided win against West Coast in challenging windy and wet conditions at Casey Fields.     The banner celebrating Sarah Lampard’s 50 games was a victim of the wind, but nonetheless Lampy received a warm round of applause from the parochial crowd in attendance.   Melbourne has the double-chance and is excited about its chances in the Season 7 AFLW finals. If this means the Grand Final is played at Metricon and the Demond make it, then
