Can't miss the Big Freeze

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.

    FEARS by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s worst fears about the absence of Max Gawn were realised when it received a shellacking from Fremantle’s ruckmen Sean Darcy and Luke Jackson who dominated the hit out tally in their game at Optus Stadium on Sunday by a massive 47 to 19. As a result, the 50-point deficit at the end of the game proved to be a loss that was long foreseen that was two years in the making and demonstrated a complete lack of hindsight and planning from the club. To add insult to injury, Jackson was a D

    RAIN CHECK by Whispering Jack

    The Frankston Dolphins broke a run of six straight losses against their neighbours, the Casey Demons and kept their hopes for a long-awaited return to the VFL finals alive with a 27 point victory over at Kinetic Stadium. Casey was welcomed to the Peninsula by grey skies, heavy rain and angry seas with threatening white-capped waves whipped up by gale force winds. After a slow start in the opening term when they failed to take advantage of the breeze, it appeared that the Demons had decided

    DEMONLAND - Good evening, Demon fans and welcome back to the Demonland 2024 Grand Final Podcast ... before we took that last phone call from a Demonlander, we were discussing how the club overcame it’s midseason slump, the season-ending injury to Christian Petracca and the loss for a brief period of skipper Max Gawn due to a  crack to the base of his right fibula, to slowly surge up the ladder turning our detractors into believers and how it ended the year triumphant in the finals with our capta

    EARLY BIRDS by KC from Casey

    Wet, slippery conditions and threatening rainfalls greeted the VFL Bombers at the end of their long journey southeast of the big city on Sunday. The threatening weather combined with the fact that neither side had realistic prospects of advancing to action in September, meant that spectators gathered at a cold Casey Fields weren’t expecting a classic exhibition of football. Nor did they get one. Instead they were presented with a dour struggle that never reached great heights. It was a
