I’m coming back to Australia for the first time in 4 years . Last melb game I went to was the semi final win over the hawks. What’s the weather forecast like Friday? Tempted to go see the pies game. I’ve got a seat in the MCC for the blues but this week could be a cracker 

The cold and wet weather forecast for Friday night I believe is just another piece of ‘fake news’ that the ferals are putting out there to try and keep fair weather Demon supporters away - but bring some wet weather gear just in case

I've already had a sulk about the AFL Members being sold out.  Could only get seats on level 4 🤢

Travelling down from Brisbane for the game - first game for the year and I can’t wait….

You picked a great game for first of the season! It’s gonna be MASSIVE. The tide has turned and who wouldn’t wanna be there to witness what’ll likely be a huge win for us?! 

And it’s awesome that you’re making the trip down for this considering - among other things - the weather is not what you’re used to.

So if Queenslanders can cope with our winter conditions, Victorians can and should, too. 

End of lecture/pep talk

Pretty poor and uneven fixturing by the AFL to schedule us 5 games in a row away from the G.

I think we did pretty well to go 3-2 considering we went Adelaide-Geelong-Alice Springs-Docklands-Perth.

Hopefully we get a lot more MFC fans than on QBDAY as were clearly outnumbered that day.

Doesn't help that Collingwood have by far the most representation of all AFL Members.

It can often resemble the Collingwood members reserve.

From level 4? They look like ants. At least they have free oxygen bottles under the seats!

Dees have been away from the G for 5 weeks. And there will be legions of filth having won 10 in a row. I reckon there will be a monstrous crowd.

Yep so plan for level 4 at the top or get there 2 hours early. Here's an idea play a seconds game to keep everyone amused.

All I want for this game is no more obnoxious and pedantic opposition supporters in the corporate suites behind me. I had bad experiences in the Freo and Sydney games. Can't stand a loud mouth Pies supporter for the whole game!

My routine is a few froffs then just roll out into the bottom lvl standing 5 mins before the opening bounce.

Can't stand Pies supporters anywhere, anytime. Especially at the moment as they are even more arrogant than usual.

Too right I'll be there. Missed the Queen's Birthday game, but my daughter, a blues supporter, went with her diehard Dee's supporter partner. She was shocked at the behaviour of Collingwood supporters, giving it to Dee's supporters as they left after the game. Carried on like they had just won the flag. Not to mention the filth bench mouthing off at Max as he went off injured (I have it on good authority he gave them a big spray back, especially Maxwell). We owe this mob big time. Expect CP5 to have a big one

Goodwin saying the club are hoping for 85-90K is wishful thinking.

Suspect it will be between 67-72K.

Having said that, weather permitting, the Pies could bring 40K to this and that will make it go close to 80.

Very much hoping there 40K+ of us there.

Weather should be no excuse, Id happily be sitting shirtless in a hail storm to watch this one. Hopefully our fickle fanbase come out in droves to support this team. Might not watch as good a Melbourne side ever again.

    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

    SWITCHING ON by The Oracle

    We can’t take anything for granted, can we? After all, the Melbourne that took Port Adelaide for a long ride around the Adelaide Oval in early April of this year and switched off late in the game is finding it difficult of late to switch back on. Apart from a stellar display against the Brisbane Lions a fortnight ago, the Demons have laboured during the middle part of the season and, with a tough draw ahead of them, have reached a critical stage of the season after their first flag in decad

    STORIES by KC from Casey

    There were more than a few stories about Friday night’s game between the Casey Demons and Geelong at GMHBA Stadium. The first was one of complete domination in the first quarter (six goals to nil), ascendency in the last (five to two) and the second was about the void in between (zero to seven). The third was about how, in the end, the Demons retained their unbeaten record despite the hell of a scare they had on the rainswept spaces of the Cattery. However, the story that folk might be

    NIPPED by George on the Outer

    Melbourne’s twenty eight point loss to Geelong down at Taxpayer Funded Park provided plenty of cat-nip for the Geelong fans and their team.  After all, the Cats go away thinking they have now got the Demons sorted after the embarrassments heaped upon them last season and their taste of this cat-nip will get even stronger in the coming weeks, courtesy of the AFL draw which gives them three more home games at the same venue in the six remaining rounds.  Yet Melbourne, despite this loss
