  1. After having problems with TICKETEC for rd1 and todays article by Nth Melb official on members embrassing technogly for games admissions. How do we as a club enable long time members get into games if they dont own a smart phone or computer. As a club we owe it to members who have paid for decades, supporting the club through thick and mainly thin to watch their DEES. Please dont label these fellow members, Luddites or tell them to pay many hundreds of dollars for a smart phone. They cant phone the club as the club is just overloaded with calls and you cant get through. If they cant get
  2. Can anyone please help this techo dill. On line trying to download tickets for sat game. We are members eligable to receive tickets after 1500 today. Going through emails sent to us and connecting to ticketek allows us to download the 2 tickets for this saturday, on line. We did this and the two pages came up and were saved. On printing the 2 pages the bar code ,black and white square, didnt appear on the printed pages, Now if it dosnt appear but the little numbers beneath the code appear can I present these pages to enter the ground? I dont own a mobile phone.
  3. I have them all but the 87,94 and 2000 are all name a game the rest are all from the TV. I cant transfer them but let me know if you have any ideas.
  4. In the past we have seen the man on the mark starting to run in to the mark and jump to make it harder to kick a long goal. If a kicking player is on his kicking range a tall defender runs from behind the mark and jumps thus making the kicker kick higher. No more, if a defender jumps it now must be vertical and he must land in exactly the same spot. If he lands only close call the ball back and award a 50m penalty. The risk is just too great , no more jumping guarding the mark.
  5. Both my wife and I will be going (if allowed), we are 70 and we trust the science. The science of maths, at present you have a much higher chance of drowning than dying of covid 19. If you dont go when you can, how do you know if you will be able with all these rule changes. Take what you can because....... I cant say the rest as it would be deemed personal politics.
  6. Simple solution for 2021 draw. Just make it the same as the real 2020 draw, we just skipped a year. So we would play the eagles in RD1 in Perth and proceed from there. So the QB and Anzac games would be ours. Simple really.
  7. Lets do something of an exercise, lets look at the season so far. No media person seems to be. This is the most pure draw we have seen, play each team once. We started out playing WC in Perth after being told that the season could be over, a hard way to start. The eagles in Perth. As of now we have played one game less than everybody except druggies. We have only played in our HOME STATE twice, which is also less than everybody else We have played 5 of the top 6 teams. We have only played 2 of the bottom 7 teams, Haw and Carl and we beat them both. We have j
  8. SWYL I have the papers as I saved MFC papers. It makes interesting reading all these years latter. When we get back to playing with crowds I will photostat them and you can pick them up at the game. I sit in 52K2.
  9. Again with the merger. Facts. ' The club is debt free, and at the end of this year will have net liquid assets of $1,300,000" SIGNED W E BALCAM Finance Director MFC . Briefing Paper - Finance: Blue paper supplied by the MFC to members. We've made profits of about $600,000 over the past two years and we will make a profit again this year. This club has no debt, it does not operate on an overdraft like a lot of other clubs and it does not have a CASH FLOW PROBLEM._ Ian Ridley, The Age 5.6.96. The new club would need a salary cap of $5 million if
  10. If you want the 2018 finals dvd a shop at caribbean gardens sells it. I got the geel and haw games for $5 ea. His shop is in the main entrance turn right after the vegs and it is down about 10 shops.
  11. I asked the membership tent on the family day what was the 2020 total to date. They said the total before the family day it was 33000 approx.
  12. If we are going to do this proposed new venue lets do this big and right. We are fixated with training near the G, so how about this. Involve many stakeholders, spread the money spread the load. The club had a good idea concerning covering Jolimont rail line, but alas the toffs didnt like it. So right idea wrong location. With assistance and money from the following, MCC, state gov, Melb city council tennis Australia and the federal gov. cover in the rail lines from Richmond station to the Russel street extension. Metro can r
  13. Why are we staring at a massive loss this year? Everybody on here says so I guess it must be correct. On what basis are you making that statement? We will have made a MASSIVE increase in inwards money owing to in excess of 6000 new members[ record]. As the break even figure at the G is 20000 people, over that figure approx. $10 to us a person. Each and every game we had over 20000 people, so we received a cheque for each and every home game at the G. Whilst we proberbly budgeted for more we still didn't lose money. MY source for the figures was on a walk to th
  14. Did anyone notice the scoring and time keeping shambles at half time on Saturday? Well at half time the two goal umpires as per every game, went to the center of the ground and consultered each other. They checked their little books and agreed the score was correct. They waved their flags toward the scorers and walked off of the ground. The score on the scoreboard was Brisbane 9.6 to Melbourne 9.4 2 points difference, this score was in the Sunday papers. Sometime in the next 15 minutes a goal wa
  15. People saying supporters living in the SE[ Pakenham, Cranbourne] are correct saying we can get off public transport at Richmond station, FOR NOW. With darling Dan the hard hat mans new underground, NO train from the SE suburbs will go through Richmond or South Yarra. If you want to go to the MCG you either change trains at Caufield or travel to the new station beneath Swanston st.
