Discussion on recent allegations about the use of illicit drugs in football is forbidden
  • IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING

    Posting unsubstantiated rumours on this website is strictly forbidden.

    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 issue of illicit drugs in footy, 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.

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'm a legends club member and I have 6 seats, but I'm taking a group to the Presidents Club lunch, so my seats are going to be unoccupied and are not transferrable. You get seats as part of the lunch, pity but that's the way it is.

Even at the Anzac game there were plenty of seats around me empty.

Nice pay day for the club

Probably our biggest ever

Pies supporters pay and they were likely quicker off the mark than ours.

Not sure what the monetary return is from the AFL section but it must be good. An old article suggested we get 41% of the revenue at the MCG but how revenue is defined I have no idea

right so you need to ring up and book a seat or your membership wont get you in the gate

No, No, No.

Do you have a Membership Card that has a seat allocation printed on it?

Sorry, some Redleg Members don't have an allocated seat but an area on level 2 where they can sit and of course they can also sit or stand in the Ryder or Hassett rooms.

Hi there, in the family we have plenty of memberships, but hadn't stocked up on tickets (TBH I don't even know how it works having been away so long, last time I went a membership got you in the gate)- anyway a hail mary request.

As you know I'm based in Sudan but left after the war started, before I go back I have decided for a quick refresh in Australia to see family and will be going to KB, brother sorted me. I just had news that a US Marine, and good friend and very nice guy is coming to visit Australia ( he evacuated from Sudan as well) for a couple of weeks before his next mission. I would love to be able to buy a ticket that I could use with a membership somehow to take him to the game. I have been teaching him and his marines how to kick a Sherrin for the last couple of years and preaching Melbourne and showing videos to them all.

If anyone has anything spare let me know, will of course reimburse as is appropriate.

DM if you have any ideas. He arrives too late to goto the Carlton game.

2 options for you I think, one is to put your membership barcode into Ticketek and click Melbourne supporter allocation and there are still some tickets available (around 200): second is find someone who has MCC guest passes and they can get you tickets (i can help with this one if you’d like)

I just got an email from the club telling me how to forward my reserved seat tickets onto others if I couldn’t go. 

I think this is a great idea. I’ll be there, but I know some people can’t, and that way the seats are filled with Red and Blue. The club is really trying to get this right.

Oh boy, am I going to be in trouble. The missus and I have already booked accomodation and flights (we live in Sydney) and now I have a ticket and she doesn’t. That’s going to be popular…….

 

Complete long shot, not expecting a miracle, surely everyone wanting tickets, but if anyone wants to sell their ticket or just help a Dees tragic out it would be unbelievably appreciated. I’ve been a reserved seat member for years and years despite hardly ever managing to see a game, purely for the grand final guarantee (which like many of us eventually couldn’t use although my niece in WA was extremely grateful for it as she used to date Chugger Spargo) so I’d even be happy to offer up my seat for the vast majority of games for anyone that was able to help? As I said i see two games live a year IF I’m lucky (I run pubs so weekends away are rare) so I’d much rather a Dees fan get to use it for their friends and family than have it go to waste. Anyway, essay over, not expecting a miracle but needed to at least put it out there

 

*Update*
 

I believe a magnificent member has 2 tickets for us, which will mean my reserve ticket would be available and obviously I would happily pay that forward to anyone needing one so feel free to message

I've got seats in M10, couple of rows back from the fence. They were a gift so no choice available. Am I going to be in Collingwood heartland? 

Still a day out at the footy, won't worry me too much just need to let the family know what we are going to be in for!

Melbourne reserved areas in the GSS are M13-M16 so you wont be too far away. Probably a 70:30 split in M10 Collingwood's way, similar to Anzac Eve. 

There are going to be lots of us there, dont think it will be 70K of them. Expecting 40K of us and 45K of them with the  rest neutrals.

I am trying to convince my husband to attend this one, since we all know that when he is at the ground, we win.

So far, his response was "90,000 Collingwood fans? I'd rather not".

 

Didn’t your husband go to the Swans or Lions final last year?

He went to the Swans final. 
We don’t ALWAYS win when he comes but he’s only seen us lose live 4 times. 
 

Edit: yes, he’s been to more than 4 games 😂

    GAMEDAY: Rd 07 vs Richmond

    It's Game Day and the Demons once again open the round of football with their annual clash against Richmond on ANZAC Eve. The Tigers, coached by former Dees champion and Premiership assistant coach Adem Yze have a plethora of stars missing due to injury but beware the wounded Tiger. The Dees will have to be switched on tonight. A win will keep them in the hunt for the Top 4 whilst a loss could see them fall out of the 8 for the first time since 2020.

    OOZEE by The Oracle

    There’s a touch of irony in the fact that Adem Yze played his first game for Melbourne in Round 13, 1995 against the club he now coaches. For that game, he wore the number 44 guernsey and got six touches in a game the team won by 11 points.  The man whose first name was often misspelled, soon changed to the number 13 and it turned out lucky for him. He became a highly revered Demon with a record of 271 games during which his presence was acknowledged by the fans with the chant of “Oozee” wh

    TRAINING: Friday 19th April 2024

    They are out for a run just as it starts raining. It didn't last long, ended up a reasonable session weather wise.  Light duties, BBB, rehab Farris-White, Melky, Salem and Spargo, all with private trainers. They are all playing soccer, huge amount of noise. 36-40 (difficult to get a count) in the main squad, biggest I've seen it in ages. Choco is barking out the orders. Goody has intense body language as he observes. Bowey in a lime green cap (no contact), and in the sim

    ICEBREAKER by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons have broken the ice for season 2024 with a pulsating come-from-behind victory over Port Melbourne in which it took the lead for the first time at the halfway mark of the final quarter. The game played in mild Autumn conditions in neutral territory at Kinetic Park, Frankston, never reached great heights in standard but it proved gripping in character at the end at the Casey Demons overcame the Borough to win by 15 points after trailing badly early in the second half.  P

    MAULED by Whispering Jack

    The writing was on the wall from the very first bounce of the football. The big men went up, Max Gawn more often than not, decisively won the ruck hit out and invariably a Brisbane Lions onballer either won the battle on the ground or halved the contest and they went at it repeatedly until they finally won out. Melbourne managed the first goal from Alex Neal-Bullen but after that the visitors shut out every area of Demon presence around the ground except in the ruck duels. It was a mauling.
