Sponsorship Problem?

Recommended Posts

How do you know we had to battle for a signature, this may have been completed weeks ago and they were waiting for most to come back from holidays to announce it. Anything to put a negative slant on it.

You almost sound disappointed we've announced it.

I am always disappointed that the Melbourne Football Club est. 1858 has to battle to get sponsorships. 

We should be turning them away...

you can think whatever you like...

shouldn’t it be Dantè?

Who says we weren't turning them away?  How do you know this hasn't been a long process that's finally culminated in the perfect deal for the club?  How do you know we haven't been in discussions with numerous companies as we look for the right deal?  That's right, you don't.  

I'm constantly bewildered that some on here talk about our off field team as if they're twelve year old's who have no idea what they are doing.  Do you think PJ and co. just sat at their desks for months awaiting a call from a prospective sponsor?  Give them the credit they deserve.

Your rhetoric may have been relevant back when we stunk it up, but we aren't that club anymore.  Your constant knocks on the club make you look like a 'non' supporter who doesn't deserve to enjoy the good times when they roll around.

Why the enquiry about Jackson and the CEO position on the Sponshorship thread? Seems to be taking is all off at a bit of a tangeant and derailing the thread topic. 

Why not? Seems the sponsorship comment is dead.

Speaking of Mr. Jackson he leaves at the end of the year and there was going to be understudy in place this year to take over from him in much the same way they handled the coaching transition. No replacement announced yet that I have heard is there any news out there?
Time marches on.

Where & when did he say he's leaving at the end of the year???

The only thing I heard him say was that he would like to do a handover similar to Roos.

I don't remember hearing a particular date or time frame mentioned.

...and I very much doubt he will be leaving unless he has someone in place, he's invested too much to get things back on track.

I think you are unduly worrying 'old dee'.

The only reason Swyl has posted another post after we find out that we don't  have a problem to get a new major sponsor, is because I made all his points about losing round 23 and not making finals,   reasons why we did not find a new sponsor  1 day after finishing with the last one look silly. Have you ever seen him post a postive post? even the postive he makes look like a negative, but it makes good reading, and makes me laugh, its like watching grumpy old men. Some can never admit they were  wr wr  wrong.

And you're like the old bloke at the end of the bar who rants and raves, but all he ends up doing is staring into a half empty pot because no one will listen.

I wasn't tell you what kind of supporter you are, just what you project to those of us on here.   That's your problem, not mine.

I don’t care how i project to you. You like to throw your opinions in on every discussion, it becomes  irksome. 

I am sick of the MFC celebrating a good season without doing anything. Its been 54 years. 

It’s Joyous we have a new Sponsor, but we need 3-4 of them to be serious, and i like many have seen them come and go. 

Now i am in no way denegrating PJ, but the players make his job that much harder when they play a 21 game season.

Waah, no sponsor, waah, no sponsor. Nek minut - sponsor? Waah, why not a better one? Get a life. PJ would [censored] himself laughing at some of the [censored] written on here by the MFCSS brigade. 

I was also relieved PJ didn't come on 'land to tell us all off for complaining about having no sponsor.

Can't help but agree with you here SWYL.

That game still leaves a very bitter taste in my mouth. As it no doubt does for all of us. It makes it harder for all of us (MFC included) when the players simply don't want to turn up.

It's also what makes me think that the players still have a little too much power or influence in areas that they really shouldn't be dictating terms to (electing not to come out and want to play in finals, having a sook about a 2 day training camp - sure it's only 2 days, but equally it's only 2 days, get over themselves and just do it).

Goodwin has come out and said that 2 days won't define our season. I have to disagree with him here, as the playing group clearly showed that it only takes 2 hours to define our season.

Couldn’t agree more DD. Too many supporters let this club off the hook and have done for decades. 

I get hammered on here for not being a “true supporter” because i am not always a happy little Demon. 

I just want the club to be hard and ruthless

and after 2016/17 we have a lot more skill, but the hard edge is still not apparent

We can only have a maximum of two "major" sponsors (ie front and back of jumper).  Only other "major" financial opportunity could be the naming rights sponsor of our home ground or training facilities, if we owned 100% of.  We don't.

Given our recent history, I think we are doing well on the sponsorship front, and will continue to do so as we continue to improve.

Small Companies mate, Zurich aside

The MFC should have the A graders, it just shows how bad things got. 

Players not giving their all in the last 2 rounds of the previous 2 seasons has only made PJ’s job that much harder.

Just did a quick check, so could be wrong, but doesn't New Balance have a revenue in the billions per year? Hardly small.

Pedantry aside, I think people conflate the business side and the playing side of the MFC too much. It's the sum of all parts that leads to a successful footy club, not mushing it all together and having a whinge.

Whatever. Both facets have to work together, but bottom line is wins. 

It amazes me how much slack supporters have given the MFC over the years.

Not quite what I meant.

I often like your posts, but sometimes I think you just yell to yourself inside your head and then quote people who are having a discussion just so that rage is backed up on some server somewhere. :)

    THE BRIGHT SIDE by Whispering Jack

    I don’t often agree with Dermott Brereton but he came close to the mark last week when he labelled Melbourne a “team of downhill skiers” that works much harder offensively than it does defensively.  And he was looking at the bright side of the team’s game plan. That proposition has been clear since before the season started. It was obvious from the first JLT game against Richmond when the team leaked multiple goals in a short space of time as players gave metres away to opposition forwards.

    CASEY VS THE AUSSIES by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons played an exhibition match against an Australian Under 19 team at the MCG on Easter Saturday but the game was played with more than half an eye on the fact that whilst their senior counterpart was taking part in their AFL Round 5 game against St Kilda later that afternoon, they also had an assignment just four days later against Richmond.  The team, with 10 AFL Demons, opened strongly and dominated the first half to lead by four goals at the main break before taking most of

    EASTER BUNNIES by George on the Outer

    Easter is supposed to be an occasion of hope, revival and ultimately celebration.  But for the Demon supporters it was none of these as yet again their team was made Easter Bunnies by the Saints. With the exception of Christian Salem, there was not a single winner on the ground.  The danger for the Demons was giving the Saints their own hope and enthusiasm by conceding early goals.  That is exactly what happened in the first quarter, although with some ridiculous frees from the umpires clos

    MARCHING IN by The Oracle

    The most embarrassing loss of the 2018 season (perhaps aside from the Preliminary Final) for Melbourne was the one it suffered in Round 15 against lowly St Kilda. The Demons came into the game as a red hot favourite but were embarrassed by the Saints' speed and willingness to take the contest right up to them for virtually the full four quarters. It was a defeat that they were to bemoan for the remainder of the season. Their arrogance in going into the game and taking an opponent lightly was a c

    RELENTLESS by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons returned to the winning list with an emphatic 54 point victory over a limp North Melbourne VFL combination at Casey Fields on Saturday. Smarting from last week’s thrashing at Box Hill, the Demons came out of the blocks intent on redeeming themselves for their embarrassing start to the 2019 campaign.  After a brief early bout of inaccuracy, the goals flowed as a result of relentless pressure applied to the visitors who were constantly forced into error.

    TO A “T” by George on the Outer

    Thursday night football - not something Melbourne FC are accustomed to doing, especially after barely garnering a Friday night game for years. Yet with this opportunity, the Demons soundly beat the Swans at the SCG and put their season back on Track. This was not only a game of mental toughness, since the Demons had so far failed to win a game in 2019 and faced possibly a season ending prospect of 0-4, should they have failed in Sydney.  History was against them, and Buddy Frankli

    The Casey Demons started the 2019 in unimpressive fashion with a 62 point loss to the  Box Hill Hawks at Box Hill City Oval. It was a total contrast to their 2018 opening when they monstered the Coburg Lions but the circumstances were entirely different. Twelve months ago, the Demons were able to go into the match with a large contingent of AFL listed players while yesterday, they went into the game with 12 Melbourne players, mostly inexperienced.  They were also hampered by the AFL sc

    2019 IS NOT 2018 by George on the Outer

    Seems like an obvious statement doesn’t it?   Yet the MFC coaching staff/team seem to have forgotten to change their calendars on January 1st. A 3 goal loss against the equal bottom side in the competition and now with a 0-3 record for the current season, it should be obvious that things have changed from 2018.  Not so on the field, as Melbourne continue to play the style which got them to a Preliminary final.   Once again the Demons saw 20 goals scored against them for the game.

    THE NIGHT OF THE TORTOISES by The Oracle

    Friday night sees two clubs of which a great deal was expected in 2019, facing off in the battle of the slow starting tortoises. Both have had calamitous starts to the season and are sitting at 0-2. One of them will, by the end of the evening, be seeing their season slipping away from their grasp.   Both clubs are playing without confidence and without purpose.

    REDEMPTION? by the Oracle

    How much should we be making out of Melbourne’s opening round loss on its home ground against an unfancied team from interstate in Port Adelaide?  The game was barely over before the excuses were coming out that about the lack of preparation of the team, the fact that some players were playing injured or unfit and unable to handle the humidity and the heat, the team’s lack of run and spread, the lack of experience and having too many key players injured or (in the case of Steven May) suspen
