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.

So hard to get a damn level 1 seat, every year it’s near impossible, missed out now 

vs Geelong 2018

vs hawks 2018

vs swans 2022

vs pies 2023

I was lucky enough to get a Ticket for the 2022 GF in the MCC ballot which I passed in after we got knocked out. 

 

 

Yep me too. We are the level 4 experts.

Anyone who pays for a Premium membership will tell you the value is great.

I have never missed out on a good finals ticket (except of course during Covid!), and I know that if we make a grand final I’ll be there as we are guaranteed a ticket. That to me is priceless, along with my wing reserved seat for home games, which I love and have held for 20 years.

What’s more all the money goes to the MFC, not the AFL.

What sort of Premium membership? Problem is there is a waiting list for most premium membership packages these days.

I’m an MCC member and pay an extra $200-something for a MCC/MFC premium membership (which gives three MCC guest passes which I use), which then enables me to buy a guaranteed grand final access (a further almost $300). That only helps for the grand final, doesn’t help me buy MFC tickets for any other final.

Evening @WalkingCivilWar, was it just me or did the Swans have their supporters behind both goal’s yesterday? Does this happen at other grounds?

Thanks

The Swans had their cheer squad behind the goals up one end.

Behind the goals at other end is the Sydney Members area so we were put a few bays around from the goals, in the pocket. This is an SCG thing.

Has always happened at Pork Barrel Park (GMHBA).

This is the other ground of the two where we can’t sit behind the goals. Geelong’s cheer squad sits up one end. The other end is the construction site so no one sits behind those goals. We're situated on the wing. Apparently when construction is complete their cheer squad plans to move to that end of the ground, giving us the bay they’re in now. How bloody magnanimous of them!!! 🙄

Anyone else in M2? Hoping it’s a Dees bay.

Where’s the cheersquad sitting @WalkingCivilWar?

 

🔴🔵

We’ll be in M3.

M2 and M4 are mixed… both teams’ supporters. I hope there’s more Dees than Pies in these bays, especially in the aisle seats. 😩

On what basis are m2 and m4 mixed. They were in our allocation and not collingwoods. They have m57 and m1 and then m5-m6.

I presume you are talking sbiut in the MCC Reserve. If this is so why don't you try the MFC ticket sale if you are eligible. May not guarantee Level 1 but more choice possibly. 

Hope you got a ticket in the MCC Reserve higher up.

To be honest I’m responding to what I  heard from people calling talk back this morning. Collingwood fans saying they were Legends fans (I don’t know what that is, but assume it’s Trident equivalent) and they didn’t get through for  90 minutes and felt very annoyed about the investment. I empathised with that. 

The club is selling priority access membership for $30. It gives the highest priority for the first 3 weeks of the finals. Then for Gf that priority is level 3 (no idea what that means but I assume they’ll sell Gf tickets in a more tiered system). 👍

Its not Legends its LEGLESS FANS...!Totally peased and inbred ferals!

Anyone else not receive the email with the barcode?  Instead I received an sms at 9.56am yesterday; just 4 minutes before ticket sales opened. 

That isn't good enough for any member let alone a 20+ year Redleg member.

It was ok as I knew where to find the barcode in my mfc account but I feel for anyone who was caught out. 

I doubt it is human error as I received the email advice on Sunday saying to look out for the barcode email on Monday.  (BTW, I checked 'junk' mail just in case it went there).  There was a system glitch somewhere!! 

I've emailed the club as it would be awful for others to miss out on tickets because they didn't have/didn't know where to look for the barcode or received it at 9.56 am!!

Couldn’t agree more Jaded, I currently live in Sydney but am originally from Melbourne. This year is my 19th as a Redleg and my wife’s 2nd. We love sitting level 2 behind the goals (seen some great marks taken over the years) and when the ball goes up the other end we have TV’s to see the play. If we bring guests from opposing clubs we can sit level 2A. Last week we got two free tickets from the club to attend the Swans game all be it they weren’t the greatest seats IMO, but still grateful. Access to the function rooms plus quicker turn around when using the bathroom. I normally sit Level 2, N3 -N4 which is for Redlegs with non reserved seats. Yesterday I got seats in N2. If it’s an affordable option it’s definitely worth it.

Out of curiosity do you have a bigpond email? All the people with bigpond that I’ve spoken to didn’t received the email. My partner gets emails from Melbourne to her gmail and no problems. I got the text at 9:58z

Yes, I use bigpond.  So, their system has take a sudden dislike to bigpond!!!!

Assuming it is an AFL wide system I wonder how many Pies fans were caught out...not that I have any sympathy for them...the fewer there the better😀

Me too. No email. I even checked to make sure my email was right.

Funnily enough I got my ticket via the link in the text I received at 9:58, not my pc browser which I had been waiting on since 9:30

@Whispering_Jack and I didn't receive our emails. We previously received emails for ANZAC eve and KB. I was able to get them from our separate MFC accounts as well and we did receive the SMS moments before tickets went on sale but that is simply not good enough.

Two other family members did receive their emails.

I tweeted at the MFC Twitter account that I and many other Demonlanders didn't receive the emails on Monday and got no response.

I am tech savvy enough and knew to check my MFC account and to scour my old emails to get the info but many are not.

Really not good enough considering we received the email on Sunday to look out for the Barcode email on Monday.

What a nonsense that we don't get the emails, probably worthy of a call to the club.

it's probably some anti spam bot in the network (somewhere) that has mistaken the mailout as spam and blocked it.

expect more such ai based bot interference in the future

    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.
