  1. Starting to feel pretty nervous now! Going to do some stuff around the house and then get some food and drinks. Time to fire up!!! GO DEMONS!!!!
  2. Looks like a magnificent bottle of Tawny Port! Funnily enough I was born in 1981. I do hope you get to drink it and it doesn't taste like vinegar.
  3. Allen Jakovich was one of my favourite players growing up as a kid. He was definitely a freak! Probably would of kicked 100 goals in an AFL season if he could kick straighter! Was definitely a shame that his career was crippled by injuries. Gotta love his highlights reel though!
  4. Not bad! It looks pretty good. Would of liked the horns bigger! I like the WEG style poster too. Although using the 1958 Grand Final WEG poster is a bit odd, I would of preferred the 2000 Grand Final WEG poster but that's just my own opinion. Anyway, we will see what happens Saturday evening I guess? Fingers crossed! 🤞 GO DEMONS!!!
  5. A better look at the Mark Knight posters for the 2021 AFL Grand Final. Thoughts on the Demon one? I think it looks pretty good. https://www.heraldsun.com.au/news/how-to-get-your-2021-mark-knight-premiership-poster/news-story/0d47561701fd0a4dd67e4a46bdcdd957
  6. I dealt with all the teasing and ridicule of barracking for Melbourne at school. My favourite players as a kid were Allen Jakovich, Garry Lyon, David Schwarz, David Neitz and Jeff Farmer. Enduring all the pain, suffering, frustration and disappointment over the years has been tough.....really tough. For me, at the very least, if Melbourne are lucky enough to win the Grand Final on Saturday it will probably be one of the most happiest days in my entire life. That's how much it would mean to me. But anyway, I won't get too far ahead of myself...let's see what happens and hope the Demons get the job done!
  7. Firstly, I would like someone to ask the CEO Gary Pert about the progress for the Melbourne Football Club's home base for administration and training next to Gosch's Paddock. If you could please ask Gary Pert the question if he could clarify if our home base will be built at car park E or the much more preferred car park F? Tell him that car park F makes for more sense and that car park E would only work if we were allowed both car park E and car park F to build upon. The more room to build the better. Also ask if the name of the training base could possibly be called the Nathan Jones' training centre? Furthermore, we should have a statue of Nathan Jones (or perhaps David Neitz?) similar to how Collingwood have a statue of Lou Richards at the Holden Centre. Has Gary Pert been looking at the objective of achieving 70,000+ members for the Melbourne Football Club within the next 5 years? Lastly ask if there has been any news from the MCC about possibly having a statue of Robbie Flower at the MCG?
  8. Great interview. Peter Jackson really helped the Melbourne Football Club when it was in a precarious position where it could have folded, merged or been moved to Tasmania. I am eternally grateful of the efforts of Peter Jackson when he was the CEO of the Melbourne Football Club. Glad to hear he will also be cheering on the Demons this week on Grand Final day too!
  9. I am a bit annoyed that in the year that these new rules come in that we will probably miss out on Mac Andrew. Why have a Next Generation Academy (NGA) if we can't use it to our advantage? The Bulldogs got the 1# draft pick out of it last year! Anyway, no point whinging about it....but I would definitely ask the question to the AFL as to what benefit does it serve AFL Clubs to unearth talent if we cannot get first priority for these NGA players.
  10. Exactly! There are a lot of Melbourne haters out there. The only way to shut them up is to win! I have been quite pleased with Gary Pert as MFC CEO so far.
  11. In some ways this is an end of an era and a little sad, it was certainly nice for the Melbourne Football Club to own pubs/clubs. I have been to both the Bentleigh Club and the Leighoak in the past, but I understand that this was a prime opportunity to get into a strong financial position. Setting up a "future fund" is crucial for the long term survival of the Melbourne Football Club. Let's hope we can now focus on striving to win Premierships and getting our training and administration base built near Gosch's Paddock.
  12. Hold your horses! Let's hope the Demons win the Grand Final first! As for possible Norm Smith medalists take your pick from Clayton Oliver, Christian Petracca, Max Gawn, Jack Viney or Jake Lever.
  13. 57 years represents how much pain, humiliation, misery, suffering and disappointment we as Melbourne members and supporters have had to endure. Basically a life time of frustration. We nearly got merged out of existence in 1996. We also nearly became bankrupt a few times. I am sure we all remember Jimmy Stynes' "Debt Demolition" campaign. Then there was the embarrassment of the "tanking" allegations. If we weren't called the Melbourne Football Club and the oldest Football Club (established in 1858) we would probably not have had the resilience and the luck to still be around. We all want Norm Smith's curse to be lifted and for our Premiership drought to finish. Please hope that the drought finally ends in a flood of tears of joy. It is about time that the fortunes of the Melbourne Football Club change for the better. 1964 was many decades ago and fresh Premiership success is well overdue. It is time for this new batch of Demons players in 2021 to write their own history. GO DEMONS!!!
  14. Nathan Jones will retire as one of the most loved players to ever represent the Melbourne Football Club. He was totally inspirational and I am so proud that he was able to play over 300 games for the Demons. Nathan Jones was incredibly loyal and you need to honour and respect that he never turned his back on the Melbourne Football Club. He stuck with us and endured all the pain, heartache and humiliation that we as Melbourne members and supporters have been suffering for many years. I will genuinely miss watching Nathan Jones play. But I am glad that he as a former Captain and leader of the Melbourne Football Club is leaving the Club in a better place than when he started. We must never forget that Nathan Jones personifies the struggles we have faced for many years in the wilderness with the Demons. Nathan Jones was one of the reasons I would turn up to watch the Demons play because I knew that he would always give 100% effort on the field. When we as a Club were an absolute basket case and a joke to the rest of the AFL it was Nathan Jones flying the flag and doing his utmost to help the Demons win against the odds. Seeing Nathan Jones kicking that goal against Geelong in the 2018 finals series was sheer exhilaration. I remember the entire MCG erupting in celebration! To me the colours of red and blue aptly suited Nathan Jones as he gave his blood (red), sweat and tears (blue) to help the Demons. I hope that the Demons players find inspiration from what Nathan Jones has done for the Melbourne Football Club and they realise that you MUST take your opportunities when they are presented to you! The game of AFL can be ruthless and you can go your entire career playing in a crap side and not making the finals. But if you are determined enough and you have a good team around you that plays for each other and you are willing to win no matter what then you may be lucky enough to achieve success. There are quite a lot of similarities between Nathan Jones and Robbie Flower in missing out in the ultimate success. Nathan Jones got to play finals in 2006 (at the start of his career) and then again in 2018. I won't say that he played in finals in 2021 but he was definitely part of the support team. Robbie Flower on the other hand only got the chance to play finals only once in 1987 and as we all know that ended in immense disappointment with Hawthorn kicking that goal after the siren. It was a tragic ending for a club champion who deserved so much better. It is definitely a shame that Nathan Jones never got the opportunities to play in the current finals campaign in 2021. But I hope that his teammates realise that your career in football is all about chances and opportunities. I wanted more than anything to see Nathan Jones win a Premiership and hold up the Cup on Grand Final day! Nobody deserved a Premiership as much as Nathan Jones (and Robbie Flower) for the Demons. Thank you Nathan Jones. You were a magnificent servant of the Melbourne Football Club and I hope that your teammates can do you proud and win a Premiership in a few days time. We love you Nathan Jones and you will always be in the hearts of all Demons members and supporters.
  15. Not really fussed about a Brownlow Medal. If Clayton Oliver, Christian Petracca or Max Gawn win one it would be nice. However, I would much rather prefer them with Premiership medallions and one of them winning a Norm Smith Medal though!
