Demons fans have had extra salt rubbed in the wounds today after receiving a ‘Finals Ticket Guide’ from the Melbourne Football Club in the mail.
Melbourne Football Club mail mishap
The mail is arriving to members three days after the team officially missed out on finals after a diabolical final round loss to Collingwood.
The mail includes advice about buying finals tickets.
“September is just around the corner….. As a Melbourne member you have exclusive access to buy tickets before the general public…….”
The glossy letter also includes a message from Demons co-captains Nathan Jones and Jack Viney. (which they wouldn’t have written)
“We are excited to share this journey with you our loyal fans……”
Demons will be back stronger than ever
Jobe Watson is one person who believes the brutal way the Demons missed out on this year’s finals could actually be a good thing for the young side in the long run.
“It’s human nature to worry about what might happen,” Watson told Channel 9.
“I think that that’s what happened with Melbourne. This will be a great thing for the football club for the next ten years.”
“I think it will burn them over the pre-season and build strength for the team going forward.”
