  • IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING

    Demonland has made the difficult decision to not permit this platform to be used to discuss & debate the off-field issues relating to the Melbourne Football Club including matters currently being litigated between the Club & former Board members, board elections, the culture at the club & the personal issues & allegations against some of our players & officials ...

    We do not take these issues & this decision lightly & of course we believe that these serious matters affecting the club we love & are so passionate about are worthy of discussion & debate & I wish we could provide a place where these matters can be discussed in a civil & respectful manner.

    However these discussions unfortunately invariably devolve into areas that may be defamatory, libelous, spread unsubstantiated rumours & can effect the mental health of those involved. Even discussion & debate of known facts or media reports can lead to finger pointing, blame & personal attacks.

    The repercussion is that these discussions can open this website, it’s owners & it’s users to legal action & may result in this website being forced to shutdown.

    Our moderating team are all volunteers & cannot moderate the forum 24/7 & as a consequence problematic content that contravenes our rules & standards may go unnoticed for some time before it can be removed.

    We reserve the right to delete posts that offend against our above policy & indeed, to ban posters who are repeat offenders or who breach our code of conduct.

    WE HAVE BUILT A FANTASTIC ONLINE COMMUNITY AT DEMONLAND OVER THE PAST 23 YEARS & WE WOULD LIKE TO CONTINUE TO BE ABLE TO DISCUSS THE CLUB WE LOVE & ARE SO PASSIONATE ABOUT.

    Thank you for your continued support & understanding. Go Dees.

I think it does mean you cannot go.

Received an email from the club, indicating that I needed to get a seat.

I’m pretty sure the club sent an email around not too long ago saying GA memberships should buy a seat to ensure they get in as tickets were selling fast. Check with the club to make sure.

There's sell outs and then there are sell outs.

Will this be a Dreamtime 78,500 sell out or a genuine 95,000 Anzac Day type sell out?

One of my big hates. AFL and MCC members who don't turn up.

It largely depends on whether people who already have reserved seats turn up. My reserved seats sections is never anywhere near full and I don't believe there are any spare seats available for sale.

What confuses me is that if a member with a reserved seat invited a guest (who pays etc etc) to the KB game my understanding is that both the member and the guest are given seats together but in another section of the ground.

If that is the case the ‘original’ reserved seat is left vacant.  If many members take up this option this would leave plenty of prime viewing seats vacant. 

I’m guessing that these are not somehow sold on.  Be good if general admission members were somehow given the opportunity to pay some sort of ‘premium’ and get a seat for the KB game. (Particularly so because from what I have read above quite a few GA members who have not reserved a seat won’t be able to attend)

This way we would get more genuine demon supporters to watch the game and the club could financially benefit.

Chances of this happening? I’m not holding my breath (but there’s plenty of time to do this is the club wanted to do this)

I asked this in the ticketing thread but I don't think anyone knows.

Exactly. Next to us are two guys from SA who have reserved seats but don’t turn up often as you expect.

When you think about it, it wouldn’t be hard to implement (I think).

The MFC would know which specific seats become vacant the moment the member goes down the path of getting guest passes (and therefore being relocated to another section)

This would then give the opportunity for the club to reallocate the seat to say GA members that want to be given an opportunity to get a prime seat for a big game such as the KB game.  (Could have a waiting list and allocate on fifo basis). Result would be happy member and more money in the coffers.

Even in the less popular games the club should consider offering seats to loyal GA members.  Again, happy member and the prime seating areas get filled with more Melbourne fans (I hate it when level 2 and 2A are only half full- no atmosphere).

If you need help I can get you MCC guest passes which are still available for level 4 or walk up on the day. Just hit me up and can work something out

Melbourne long range weather forecast

June 14th top 14 degrees and wet. Not what we want to see. 

Be positive, that forecast is a long way ahead.  Even forecasts a week ahead can be a bit dicey.  
I reckon you can only rely going out about three days at most.

    SCRUTINY & RESILIENCE by Whispering Jack

    If the week when preseason training melds into scratch matches with other clubs, is the first marker for the beginning of a new season, then this has certainly been a torrid opener for the Melbourne Football Club in its campaign to remain a leading AFL premiership contender in 2024. The Demons were already under enormous scrutiny from the media and football’s fan base (including their own) after consecutive straight-sets finals exits, with Clayton Oliver’s well documented woes, the Joel Smi
