  1. Preseason Training - Week commencing 11/12/17

    Great so no free games to developing players. Just pick the best side for each week. Win at all costs.

    Sorry I meant the original comment, Goody won’t pick the best side, just the side he likes that day?

    Why does that even mean?
  4. Sponsorship Problem?

    Stakeholders who have larger opportunities you might be able to tap into. Coterie is key as well, the big business guys in those, Presidents functions you get to chat to people etc etc. All plays into it.
  5. Sponsorship Problem?

    The more relevant qs for the Dees is does the NT $$ outweigh potential lesser $$ they may receive by playing in NT, do those 2 games scare off sponsors? Our partner plays some games in Tassie, we don't sell our product in Tassie so it decreases the value for us but overall we see it is good value even though Tassie games don't help us.
  6. Sponsorship Problem?

    Working for a small corporate who does sponsor an AFL team and having worked at a medium corp who sponsored the Hawks there are so many layers to these kinds of things. Is it a brand only play? If so how much is the spend/over how many years? How long is the season so the brand is in play for as long as possible? Can you use those $$ in other ways to drive more brand or sign ups? Can you get more eyeballs through a billboard on Citylink or more from digital spend than this sponsorship? How big is the member base/how much access to them do you get to pitch your product (whats the reach)? Is the club on the up and potential for new members in yrs 2 and 3 etc. Does the product you have align/can it be sold to the members/fans? What kind of acquisitions do you think you can get out of the members and other fans who may see your product? The old company did well out of Hawks, they signed up just before hawks won the first of the 4 flags. Lower cost, lower CPA for first couple of years, decent take up by members with an ok CPA. How well do you work with the club? We have an awesome relationship with our club who work hard to provide value to the partner. In our case what kinds of values does the club have and do they align with or exceed our values? We are constantly pitched to by NRL clubs... no fkn wwwaaayyyy mate! What kind of access can you get to other sponsors/partners/anyone else associated with the club or code? etc etc It is pretty subjective especially if it is a brand play only (but clubs provide "value metrics" you need to pick apart), acquisitions and CPAs are easy to measure.

    So that is not far away? Maybe they will use sand bags this year.

    Saty, I know it's your opinion but not really his choice if he is a fan of the running or not, you want to be the best then you need to do it.

    It was 1 contest of 1 drill and a terrible kick, don’t read too much into it. edit: ^ as he said.
  11. AFLW Preseason

    Good story, committed to the cause. Go Rocky!
  12. Preseason Training - Week commencing 4/12/17

    An old Raptors top maybe?
  13. Preseason Training - Week commencing 4/12/17

    Agree, but also some on ground leadership ie who is helping him stay focused during the on ground time while he isn't having a rest on the bench or during breaks in the qtrs. I think that is an area the team as a whole needs to improve on, the leadership of on ground talking/coaching when needed.
  14. Preseason Training - Week commencing 27/11/17

    I hope they turn out and don't have an indoors session for you MD.
