Sponsorship Problem?

Recommended Posts

The Australian Financial Review has today published a story showing that the AFL is - by far - the wealthiest sporting code in the country. For those who don't have online access, John Stenshot's story claims the AFL had revenue in 2017 of $650 million and a profit of $44.8 million. These figures compare with:

NRL - revenue of $354m and a loss of $3.7m

Cricket Australia - revenue of $313m and profit of $50m

Rugby Australia (2016 figures) - revenue of $129m and profit of $3.7m

FFA - revenue of $105m and a loss of $0.3m

and still clubs have [censored] stadium deals in Victoria. The AFL is swimming in money ? ? and should be ashamed of itself. 

Gill and his Henchmen will all get bonuses

He’s so odd. He started off the same on Big Footy as a GWS supporter. All positive and the like, then when posters begun to challenge him he lost it and eventually was permanently banned for trolling.

Well done to the AFL but we know that it is fundamentally dependent upon the TV deal.

There are only so many times you can go to that well.

Oh yes Ethan. The Doctor has been around for a long time. This latest sojourn is by far his longest incarnation at DLand. 

Maybe it is the final place he can log onto...

Good point - its now time to get the clubs to operate as a business in the game of AFL football & in the world of sports entertainment. Might upset many but it is what it is.

I'm fairly certain that game day revenues in total (not exactly sure what this includes) are about the same as TV revenue, so whilst TV is huge attendances also contribute a lot.

I hope they treat sponsors better than members. I  Renewed 2 weeks ago and have received nothing and when I enquired was told it takes 4 - 6 weeks for the pack to be sent. FMD. Combined with the poor communication about Casey it is nowhere nearly good enough. The club take their membership for granted and once they’ve got your money no more communication until they want more.

just to be fussy - we actually have 9 major sponsors.   zurich and iselect are principal sponsors

p.s. just a suspicion but i think the order (see below) reflects the $ value of the sponsorship. Note where infinit slots in

    THE WALKING WOUNDED by Paddy Gosch

    Forget the fact that Melbourne narrowly missed out on getting the four JLT points on offer for a second consecutive week and the blow to the ego of a supposed top four contender losing ... well almost at home ... to a team that has recently dwelt in the AFL cellar and won a mere five games in 2018. The things that emerged from the horror final JLT outing was that the Demons are a long way from being prepared to take on the rigours of a long tough season in which they have one of the hardest fixt

    PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons have named a star studded line up in it’s final practice match before the season proper. They take on the emerging Brisbane Lions out at Casey which is the second of three matches at the ground on Saturday. Many of the Dees best 22 have been recalled including Vice Captains Max Gawn and Neville Jetta whilst Captains Nathan Jones and Jack Viney will play restricted minutes in the VFL curtain raiser. Former Gold Coast co-captain Steven May will play his first official game for Melb

    HIT OUT by Paddy Gosch

    As far as preseason hit outs go, the Demons’ first JLT Community Series fixture against the Tigers in the blistering heat at Shepparton, was instructive of a number of things but not really conclusive as to how each team will fare in the regular season against the competition's big guns (which includes against each other). That’s the way these practice match hit outs go. Neither of the teams was at full strength, particularly Melbourne but if you were looking for the reason for the 12 point

    HOT OUT OF THE CITY by Paddy Gosch

    The Dees travel out of the city for game one of two JLT Community Series practice matches before the season proper. Our first match takes us to the floodplains of the Goldburn River in Northern Victoria to the city of Shepparton. We take on the Tigers for the first of at least 3 encounters with the 2017 Premiers this year. The game will be played in scorching temperatures so expect plenty of rotations, ice vests, fans running overtime and extra water carriers. The Demons are coming off a wi

    GAME, SET & SCRATCH by Paddy Gosch

    I always believe in starting off any report by accentuating the positive and in that regard, as at the time of writing, the Demons have not reported any injuries so that’s my major positive from today’s practice game v the Magpies (albeit that we know the club is somewhat lax in reporting these things so my best wishes go out if any of today’s participants are in intensive care at the Alfred).  Another positive was that Razor Ray performed his umpiring duties admirably which is more than I

    SCRATCH by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons are set to take on the old enemy Collingwood in a good old fashioned Scratch Match on Friday Morning. It is unknown what form the match will take, how many quarters there will be, their length, the amount of rotations or even whether they'll keep score. One thing we do know for sure is that both coaching staffs will be keeping their cards close to their chests to ensure neither will glean too much from their competition. The Dees will likely be without some of their stars as Tom

    IMAGINE by Whispering Jack

    The Demons made their official return to the training track for 2019 on a sunny Saturday morning at Goschs Paddock with most of the interest initially centred on a small patch of ground in one of the pockets where the rehab group was going through the paces. Some good pieces of news on that score. The  rehab group is considerably smaller than it was prior to the Christmas break with Christian Petracca (knee), James Harmes (shoulder), Jayden Hunt (shoulder), Neville Jetta (shoulder), Oscar M

    THAT WAS THE YEAR THAT WAS by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne atoned for the heartbreak of its frustrating finish to the 2017 season by, at long last, making the finals and then disposed of two highly credentialed and experienced teams in Geelong and Hawthorn before it capitulated meekly to eventual premier West Coast in the Preliminary Final in Perth. The club’s progression has been forward and upward since it finished 2013 with two wins and appointed Paul Roos as coach. The number has increased to four, seven, 10, 12, and now 14 games. The

    DRAFT STORY: THE BYSTANDERS by Whispering Jack

    It was an eerie feeling, like floating on air high above the events taking place on the ground below. This was the New Draft, a two day festival of little importance to Melbourne supporters on the first night and seemingly, of little consequence on the following day. It was as if we were the bystanders of the 2018 AFL National Draft. From the time the Demons traded away their first round selection in this year’s event as part of the deal to secure Jake Lever more than 12 months ago, it was
