A pre-season dinner was held in the MCC Pavilion, with Harry Harker presented with the football he had kicked ten goals against Geelong with in the last game of 1921.
Alf Wilson received a case of brushes as the best batsman in the player's cricket team, and Charlie Streeter a suit case as the best bowler. John Lord was recognised with a case of pipes for taking a hat-trick against Essendon. Mick Anthony won a silver cigarette case for best fielder, and the MCC was presented with a framed photo of the cricket premiership side.

Before the season there was a contested election for seven committee positions. Candidates were EA Bond, SER Church, GG Coulter, CE Couchman, L. Nichols, B. Nolan, GF Pape, CH Parkin, WW Strickland, J. Strong and WFV Sykes.

Two wins to open the season gave the long suffering Redleg fans hope that their side would make the finals for the first time since 1915, and for just the second since 1902. Two losses brought them back to earth but shock wins over Collingwood and Carlton left them hanging onto fourth place after Round 13.

A surprise loss in Geelong was the beginning of the end for the Fuschias, and with a cruel schedule the last month of the season saw them have the bye once and lose the other three matches to eventual finalists. The sixth place finish left them in exactly the same place they had been a year before.

Andrew Manzie and Bill McClelland were Melbourne's VFL delegates, and McClelland also served as league vice-president. The club lost 593 pounds for the season.
