Thanks for collecting all that info, I T.

Hope it helps posters/readers do easy comparisons of trends and where we are at.

 

So according to LH's and I.T's excellent info and table we hit our current total sometime in week 4 of January this year and early March the year before. It will be interesting to see if we end up with significantly more members or people are just renewing earlier. Either way there is a fair bit of excitement out there for the 2017 Demons

If you look at the historical data we get around 12,000 people join from Jan-June.  Hitting 27297 by end Nov is great, we should push above 30,000 prior to Christmas which really sets the club up to hit 40-45,000 for the year.  Lets say 42,500 an extra 3300 members or in revenue terms about 600K

I guess the worry there is that there may be a percentage of those  12,000 who normally join during the season proper have become enthusiastic and gotten in earlier than they normally would have...

Whilst you may well be right, that sure is a 'glass half empty' way of lookin at things. Come on, only positive vibes around here!

 

Until we come out and get slaughtered in round 1... Then yeh... Bring on the negativity.

We're pretty much on last year's tally for 1st week of Feb. At this rate we should certainly crack 30,000 prior to Christmas. Based on previous years rates of increase we are definitely going to crack 40000 this year and should be looking at somewhere around 43,000 or more.

40,000 will be broken this coming year.

If we get off to a good start, we'll give 45,000 a serious shake too

Got an email from the Club today that if you renew today you could be one of ten to get an MFC cap. 

So I've renewed. Thought I should put it up here in case anyone else wants to go for a cap as well.

Personally I'd prefer a cap to a scarf. I have masses of them. I have raised this with the Club for years but they won't change. I don't know why they don't change it up a bit every few years. The Swans do caps instead of scarves.

it's a fair point it. caps would also be better advertising/branding because they are more likely to be worn and therefore seen on more occasions. people wear caps all year round and in many more situations.

And please IT if you do win one - and I hope you do- please, please wear it the right way round (you know, with the peak facing the front)!

I wish the club would issue a deerstalker.

Imagine the potential advertising on the flaps.

    GALLANT by KC from Casey

    The world “gallant” is not one that is readily acceptable to losing teams in our game of football so when it was used in the context of the Casey Demons’ loss to Sandringham in yesterday’s match at Casey Fields, it left a bitter taste in the mouth.  The Demons went into the game against the St Kilda affiliated Zebras with the advantage of playing on their home turf (not that this has been a major asset in 2024) and with very little else going in their favour. The Saints have close to a full

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w
