    Demon greats to be honoured at MCG

    Jun 05, 2012

    MCC members are invited to attend the official opening of two terrace bars on Level 4 of the MCC Members Reserve named in honour of Melbourne footballers Robert Flower and David Neitz.

    Flower made his VFL debut stepping on the field for the Melbourne Football Club in 1973. He went on to captain the team from 1981 until his last game in 1987. He was awarded club best and fairest in 1977, named in Melbourne's Team of the Century and All Australian in 1980, 82, 83 and 84.

    A wingman, he is widely regarded as one of the game's best with his ability to create space for himself and kick and handball with extreme accuracy. His loyalty and dedication to his team was second-to-none and remains a club icon. He was inducted into the AFL Hall of Fame in 1996.

    Neitz was the longest serving captain in the club's history and the first Melbourne player to achieve 300 games. He became one of the AFL's elite goal scorers, leading Melbourne's goal kicking seven times throughout the late-90s and early-2000 and winning the Coleman Medal in 2002.

    He became Melbourne's all-time leading goal-kicker in 2006, surpassing Norm Smith's previous record of 546 goals. Shortly after he broke Robert Flower's long standing record of 272 games, making him the longest serving Demon in history.

    The brief event will take place on Monday June 11 at 1.00pm, prior to the Queen’s Birthday clash, in front of the Flower Terrace behind bay Q47.
