Well not useless. Maybe we should make it known, that the highest % of members that go to the footy of all Victorian Clubs are Dees members.

Let's get rid of that BS stereotype, that we are all at the snow.

Speaking of stereotypes, I acknowledge it is a hard ask for Pies members to get day leave from Her Majesty's Prisons, to go to the footy.

Am probably being very negative here but the stat is an incredibly poor reflection of member turnout. Yes we have an average home attendance of 39K but this does not mean that 39K melbourne members attend our home and and away games.

I think you will find that 20-25K Melbourne supporters go to every home game and the rest is made up by the other team. Yes there will be an outlier (like flag unfurling, Brisbane on a Thursday night) but this tends to be the case. It stands true to the 70K crowd against Collingwood which we were easily outnumbered close to 2:1 and the Carlton game which was pretty much 1:1 for a 55K crowd.

The stat is nice, but does not properly reflect who is actually going to games.

The Title says it all.....Useless AFL stats.

I assume the home game attendance is the average over the season.

That of course is influenced by who you play.  A home game against Collingwood for example boosts the average considerably.  A home game against GC does the opposite.

Geelong stadium being redeveloped with only 20K that can get in, so that drops them down considerably.  North & Hawthorn play games in Tassie at a ground with 20K capacity.

Memberships?  We all know these numbers are fudged.  Saints $1 membership last year was the classic. Does anyone really believe North have 50K members when only 9K for both sides turn up for a home game against Melbourne?

As for the supporters statistics.  Every year the same survey comes out with the same fundamental error.

If you ask a regular Joe Blow in NSW which AFL side he supports, the answer will be in all probability Sydney.  Then that survey response is translated Australia wide, even if they get zero in all other states.  Result, Sydney supposedly have the highest number of supporters.

The same scenario would occur if you asked Victorians which Rugby League side they supported.  Storm would lead the tally, except no-one in Victoria, SA & WA gives a rats about RL.

How in Hades does GWS have over 30k members. I smell some creative accounting going on somewhere. Were they giving them out free with Royal Easter Show tickets/entry?

Are you saying there is a negative here?

    CHANGES 2022 Part Three 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

    LIVE IN THE MOMENT by Meggs

    The final home and away match of Season 7, sees the mighty Dees at Fortress Casey hosting the 16th placed West Coast.     A win assures the Dees of a Top-2 finish, with the ultimate placings dependent upon the previous night’s result between Brisbane and Collingwood and the relative percentages.   As our match is anticipated to be one-sided, interest may turn to monitoring the live ladder to see whether or not Melbourne has secured the minor premiership.     The Demons (Lions and Cro
