Demon (2/10)



  1. So the usual complains that we pray to not have are Geelong at their pub ground and west coast in Perth. However, it is almost guaranteed we are gonna get the Cats twice and they wont both be at the G. Even if we have a home game against West Coast it will probably end up being in Alice so it will be 9 years where we don't get them at the G. My hopes are: 2 games at Adelaide Oval - we play that ground better than any other and its one of, if not, the best interstate trip Sydney at the SCG - Only played them there twice since 2013 and we need to learn how to beat them up there in case we get a final at the SCG (also last proper ground I haven't seen Melbourne play at) 15 MCG/Marvel + plus 1 in Geelong rather than the 14, 1 and 7 interstate trips we normally have. Breakdown on that being 3 MCG away games (13 in total) and 2 at Marvel. More Saturday 2:10 games - did not have a single Saturday red ball game at the G this year (only Sunday 1:10 against the Saints). QB/KB and Anzac Eve are our home games so hoping for double ups agianst the Pies and Tigers on Friday nights for exposure. Not [censored] North in Hobart with a ten goal breeze but that is also wishful thinking. Round 1 home game on a Saturday arvo against Essendon/Carlton/Hawthorn.
  2. Finals series tickets are bays Q8-Q1 normally no? doesn’t make sense for 9 bays to be unsold. who cares tho every demon should be there and make some [censored] noise
  3. Phenomenal? don’t think I could name a single crowd that was phenomenal. our crowds are hugely inflated by having home games against Melbourne teams at the mcg.
  4. Turns out someone forgot to put row HH on sale in bays M7-M15, so that's now all gone on sale.
  5. Highly doubt 70k tickets sold. would suggest 55k tickets sold plus mcc walk ups and a few afl walk ups. Less no shows
  6. Q1-Q15 rows A-T just about sold out probably 60 tickets left. That’s over 5K there plus 2k in the northern stand and maybe 7k mcc gives you 14k level 4. it might sneak above 60
  7. Yes, I think if all people with tickets show up (especially mcc) the crowd would be 65k.
  8. Is it tho? If there are 50,000 Melbourne fans there considering we are a small club I think that’s a good effort. Mcc will be full to the back and that’s what they run out to. also an incredibly small uptake of tickets from brisbane members. i still think there is a small chance we may get to 60k.
  9. Just my final thoughts on what crowd will be tomorrow. 34K on level 1, 8k on level 2, 3k on level 2a and 10k on level 4 55k is what that gets me which i still think may be overs but am hoping we get a little more
  10. They always put up bay on level 2 two days before the game. Its usually N24 for unused dining allocation. The fact that level 1 sold out surprised me.
  11. not much has changed tbh, they put M35 and M36 on sale yesterday and those are just about sold out now so level 1 youd think would be full. Level 4 hasnt changed too much, hopefully all of Q49-Q57 will have rows A-J sold. Q3-Q10 rows A-T sold. Q1-Q2 and Q11-Q24 rows A-J sold. MCC sold out bar restricted view. Im thinking 56K which is same as Anzac eve last year and ticket sales look very similar.
  12. Am probably being very negative here but the stat is an incredibly poor reflection of member turnout. Yes we have an average home attendance of 39K but this does not mean that 39K melbourne members attend our home and and away games. I think you will find that 20-25K Melbourne supporters go to every home game and the rest is made up by the other team. Yes there will be an outlier (like flag unfurling, Brisbane on a Thursday night) but this tends to be the case. It stands true to the 70K crowd against Collingwood which we were easily outnumbered close to 2:1 and the Carlton game which was pretty much 1:1 for a 55K crowd. The stat is nice, but does not properly reflect who is actually going to games.
  13. AFL reserve was 75% hawthorn and mainly neutral against Geelong.
  14. why dont the fools just reduce prices and entice another 5000 people to attend. Now you end up with people that have been shafted by paying full price and it really isnt fair.
  15. Against the Hawks in 2018 there were at least 35K of them there and probabaly 50 of us. Against the cats id still say 55K of us 25K them and 10K neutrals because it was the finals series ticket game.
