Recommended Posts

Thanks Lucy, got a phone call from the Club this afternoon. They needed to verify a couple of things but a ticket into the ground is on the way.

Our crowd for Carlton was pathetic again. 

Under 50,000. Our home game. Carlton outnumbered us easily again even though they're a lost cause. 

We better show up on Monday. 

No they didn’t, it wasn’t even close. 
50k was perfectly acceptable on a cold Friday night with two teams in [censored] form. (12k above our average against Carlton since 1997) Our fan base is very quiet as always but the entire northern stand was red, it just doesn’t seem that way on tv.

In Europe big felllaaaaa. 

Constantly being told to show up to games is becoming tiresome, especially from someone who’s currently in Europe.

I think you’ll find he’s a very regular attendee of games. People are allowed to go away and still want others to front up.

Fair enough. 

Looked and sounded very pro Carlton. But I understand you were there. 

Just hope we show up on Monday, as we know Collingwood will.

Pies have 5 times as many supporters as what we have.  Maybe more

I've lived in Melbourne my whole life and there are Pie fans everywhere.  Demon fans are scarce and I rarely come across them other than when I'm at our games

They will obviously outnumber our supporters

Most of our supporters are members but Collingwood have hundreds of thousands of fans who aren't members (in my opinion)

If we can get about 35k of our own supporters at the game with the Pies supplying 55k, we'll have done exceptionally well on a pro-rata basis

And with Sidebottom & De Goey out, it's advantage Demons

Defence based with a return to our 2021 method.  Do that and we'll have a more potent offence

It's the language used. Think about the way this guy talks. Better turn up! Pathetic!  No need to be such a drama merchant. We get what he means, again, again and again. 

 

Reality is that 50K on a freezing Fri night is not Pathetic.   Just an on line alarmist who wants to be heard. The more likely scenario is that the poster merely wants others to reply and ask if he was there or not to which he can reply with a wry grin that he is abroad. I actually think that is a more apt definition of pathetic than having a crack at a 50K D crowd.

Wanting others to show up to matches while you’re on the other side of the planet is one thing. Complaining about our attendance numbers (calling them “pathetic”) and ending your post with “we (sic) better show up on Monday” is another thing entirely.

Besides, Carlton have way more members/fans than we do. Collingwood, more so. No one should be expecting us to match Collingwood in size and noise level. That’s not gonna happen.

I’m going to go on the off chance we win comfortably and if we do I’m starting a Meeeeeelbourne chant just to stick it up ‘em.

I don't know how many times I need to say this but Friday night fixtures don't draw the way they used to after COVID.
There just aren't the numbers in the CBD. So the typical knock off drinks then on to the Gee aren't happening.

You say that Carlton outnumbered us, what did you do, count them?

Mrs Dw and I werent there and I dont need to explain why to you. Frankly, I'm a bit sick of judgemental ........ people, like you ( funny coming from someone with a high horse).

Before you feel compelled to reply /defend yourself, think on this;  

A lot of our members prior to 2020 were over 50 and if you took a straw poll on this site (maybe something Andy has done) you would find that to be true, and they're the tech savvy ones. Those same people are now 3 yrs older and find a 750 start on a Friday night harder to get to. Some of those same people find it tough to take 2 or more hrs to get home and then there is the safety aspect. It's why I've started staying overnight more. With that comes more cost.

Our membership numbers have risen a lot over the last few years. I know of many members who buy a membership for all our home games knowing that they may not be able to attend any/ few games but want to support the team financially. So here is an idea; keep your shoot from the hip comments somewhere they don't offend.

The problem we have had against Collingwood in the past is that most of level 1 ends up being reserved seating and for whatever reason the sound from level 1 sounds best at the ground and is also closest to the broadcasters microphones, so it has always sounded far more pro Collingwood.

this year we have an additional 4 bays of Melbourne only reserved seating on level 1 and these seats were snapped up within three days of being put on sale. There is this misconception by pessimist like Old Dee that there are going to be 70,000 Collingwood supporters on Monday and 15,000 of us.   This is [censored]. We have approx 13k reserved seating areas which will be full, the MCC will be 75% Melbourne (approx 16k) plus around 30% of reserved seating will be bought by us (aligned with Anzac eve). This excludes the minimal support we have in the afl reserve and the small amount of GA areas that people have purchased tickets to. 

by my reckoning there will be at least 35k Melbourne support on the day hopefully judging 40k. Yes there will still be more of them and they are a hell of a lot louder, but we will still turn up. We haven’t had a QB home game at the g for 5 years too.

It's quite incredible how our own supporters fall-in to the ridiculous narrative that we don't turn up for games

I'd like to know where all these supporters who don't go to games are?  I don't know any Demon fan who doesn't attend games

Seriously, the city of Melbourne is full of supporters of the big 4 clubs (Pies, Tigers, Bombers & Blues)

It's a total myth that there are thousands of Demon fans that are fair-weather.  It's total BS.  Rot.

And the ratio of members who attend games is about the same percentage for all clubs

Again, the Pies have 5 times as many supporters as what we have ... they are everywhere.

So they (by rights) should outnumber us 5 to 1 at our clashes.  But that never happens ... it's more like 2-1

We’ll be there, win or lose. But yeah, if we win, that chant will cop a hiding!

It’d be awesome after last year’s insufferable train ride home, me and maybe four other Dees supporters crammed into a carriage full of black n white Neanderthals doing that chant the whole time. 🤮

    GALLANT by KC from Casey

    The world “gallant” is not one that is readily acceptable to losing teams in our game of football so when it was used in the context of the Casey Demons’ loss to Sandringham in yesterday’s match at Casey Fields, it left a bitter taste in the mouth.  The Demons went into the game against the St Kilda affiliated Zebras with the advantage of playing on their home turf (not that this has been a major asset in 2024) and with very little else going in their favour. The Saints have close to a full

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w

    It's Game Day and after 2 losses on the trot the Dees must win against the Saints today at the MCG to keep in touch with the Top 4. A loss today will see them drop out of the Top 8 for the first time since 2020.
