If we get to 48300 then it will be because of a strong onfield start to the season and the momentum will carry us through until 50,000+. As an example, if the Women's Team pulls off a Premiership (or even a GF) then that alone should translate to another new 1,700 members let alone any boost from the Casey Demons!

An interesting point there CBD.  The rise in the membership could in some part be due to women supporters and fans joining themselves and their families for the first time. 

Only the club will know the demographics of the 'extra' members are but I wouldn't be surprised if the force behind it is having a women's team and the exposure it is getting.  Of course, Daisy alone would attract lots of attention to the club and new members on the back of that.

CBDeees, you sound like a colleague of mine who used to make appointments with clients for 12. 32 or 4.08 or some silly time. He was so specific with numbers, we thought him odd.

Off-topic but I have been in the cardio unit of St Vincent's Hospital for the last ten days, kept alive be reading the training reports on Demonland by Saty and others. Imagine my joy when another passionate paid-up Melbourne supporter moved into the bed opposite yesterday (from Tanganbalanga)! ?

For a moment I thought you were going to say moved into bed with you - that is carrying the flag a little too far. Keep things positive and the talk about the future of the Club not the recent past. Anyway if anything untowards happens again keep the thought that you at least wont have to have Andy giving you mouth to mouth!

The Tanganbalanga supporters are feeling very gung-ho about our 2017 prospects! ?

The brooching of the Women's effect bears thought. Is it not reasonable to think there's an element of supporter base that might sign on , not just barrack, because there's a womens team ?

The best thing is that as it is currently a restricted women's competition with only four Melbourne-based teams, we effectively get the jump on the Hawks, Bombers, Saints, Roos and Tigers!

It is an advantage that we will only have for a short window so we must leverage off it to the maximum.

I am also bullish about 50,000, especially if we again preform well in the pre-season competition.

A 10k membership increase is worth $2m and you can probably add on the same in sponsorship/merchandising appropriate to the increase.  Bye debt.

Absolutely...We all must keep high expectations for on field performance next year and beyond. We will never get number 13 if we don't.

How many members are we up on this time last year? Does anyone have a running total for comparison?

All the comparisons your (red and blue) heart desires are in this thread:

Its pinned to this forum, if you need to look for it again.

 

 

On a different note - received my membership pack:cool:  Really impressed with the new graphics on the card and each page of the calendar!  And a clever way to show our connection to Melbourne, the city and its skyline!

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had

    CENTIMETRES by Whispering Jack

    Our game is one where the result is often decided by centimetres; the touch of a fingernail, a split-second decision made by a player or official, the angle of vision or the random movement of an oblong ball in flight or in its bounce and trajectory. There is one habit that Melbourne seems to have developed of late in its games against Carlton which is that the Demons keep finding themselves on the wrong end of the stick in terms of the fine line in close games at times when centimetres mak

    POSTGAME: Rd 09 vs Carlton

    The Demons were blown out of the water in the first quarter and clawed their way back into the contest but it was a case of too little too late as they lost another close one to Carlton losing by 1 point at the MCG.
