Sponsorship Problem?

Winning games fixes just about everything SWYL.

On that form we have been atrocious for over a decade add our small supporter base and less than wonderful draw/ Free to air TV coverage and you have the perfect recipe    for low sponsors numbers or poor paying sponsors.

Would we be in this position if we had won the last game of 2017?

Who knows but I suspect not.

We just have to win 14+ games in 2018 and play finals in 2018.

As you say the players are being paid the full amount so IMO it is up to the players.

Win games guys or we will continue to be amongst bottom few teams.

Absolutely. It is entirely on the players shoulders now. 

How much do they want to succeed on the MCG later in the year?

Not sure if this has been mentioned elsewhere on here or if it warrants a seperate thread, but MFC is due to unveil a new major sponsor most likely in mid-January. Haven't heard any precise detai

Well done OD - we solve one problem, you quickly move on to worrying about the next.  

The wrist slashing on here about sponsorship is astounding. The club under Peter Jackson has done an amazing job. Sponsorship is hard. It's slow dance with uncertain outcomes and difficult negoti

You don’t think our 2018 Draw and dismal TV deal has anything to do with the Round 23 result (choke)??

it’s all connected and in this city we are obviously last in line when it comes to Sponsorships, been the same for a long time

You miss the point.  Of course if we had got into the finals (or won the flag!) we'd be in a better position with sponsors.  But we were discussing the impact of the R23 debacle itself on potential sponsors as things stand now. I maintain the method of our failing to get into the finals now carries little weight with potential sponsors.

Yes i think Round 23 last year has an impact on the fact, that as of now we have no Major Sponsor. 

What point have i missed??

The proposition I disagreed with was that the lack of spirit etc which supposedly caused the R23 debacle in itself would scare away sponsors.  The point I have been making is that compared to all the other factors, that would not in itself weigh heavily with sponsors.  If you can't see the distinction I'm not going to try to explain it further.

Not laying a tackle in the first 10 minutes of such an important game says a lot in terms of spirit and if i were wanting to sponsor a team, it would definately be a strong factor going forward with a decision. 

I don’t need you to explain anything. It was all there in front of my eyes ?

I disagree with everything you've said, It looks terrible when your the only team without a sponsor and don't worry it definitely be noticed if we run out in round one without a sponsor. It's hard to change the perception of our club when your running around with a blank space on your jumper, the media will notice & we become the butt of all jokes for other teams supporters. 

I doubt they’ll be pi55ing themselves laughing, after we’ve handed their well sponsored team, their asses on a plate.

Rumours on BigFooty (take it with a grain of salt) that Lexus is to be announced as our new co-sponsor soon.

Please excuse my scepticism CB but that was mentioned here pages ago. They probably got it from Demonland.

Maybe, as mentioned in this very thread a while ago. A few players have taken Instasnaps of their new toyota cars...I get they both come under the same company but why buy cars from one subsidiary if you're being sponsored by another?

Much more likely praha is that we do not have a car sponsor and the players are just buying cars they like.

Win a few early, impress the AFL monolith and the true-blooded fans, stay aloof as best as possible from the sponsorship debate, honour the jumper by not carrying a viral logo from a sponsor - and allow the team to get on with it. We could do worse. Then, be selective as to who is knocking on the door. Go slowly...

Or maybe the players bought their cars before the AHG deal was over and bought them at a 'special rate' from dealers associated with the then sponsor.

I know I am a bit down the pecking order LDC but I enquired late November at a dealer and was told it was over.

Last year at this same time we were all speculating on who would replace AHG who went from fromnt and back of the jumper to only one side.

Guess what nothing happened until well into the season.

I suspect we have the same problem this year.

Great news!!! As a Financial planner I will now look to use Zurich as my number 1 insurance provider.?

They just purchased OneCare insurance from ANZ Wealth.

Will be interesting times, I think the deal makes them Australia's largest insurer now, overtaking TAL.

I was sceptical of the clubs ability to get a deal done before the start of the season, but this is a great result (assuming the dollars are okay). Well done to Peter Jackson and his staff.

It is great they got them deal done before the start of the season, the issue just is the lost merchandise revenue by having the deal done so late.

    HOT PIES FREEZE DEES by George on the Outer

    In the Annual Big Freeze game in support of Neale Daniher's fight against MND, it was Collingwood who froze the ambitions of the Demons, and it now challenges them to thaw out their prospects in the second half of the season. Even though Melbourne opened the scoring account, it was quickly countered by Collingwood, as the Demons appeared flat. And even though they held a minor lead at the first break, it was only through a couple of fortunate efforts, but nothing more.  All around

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne supporters are an unusual lot. Their lived experiences over years of witnessing their team’s humiliation at the hands of the competition’s bullies have left them suspended in a Bizarro World beset by a cognitive distortion know as 'mental filtering'. This is a phenomenon that occurs when people focus exclusively and blindly on long held belief systems. They refuse to accept that conditions have changed so when the evidence is present before their very own eyes, their minds are frozen.

    CHANGES: 2021 MID SEASON by The Oracle 

    Since the end of the 2020 free agency, trade and draft period, AFL clubs have had two further bites of the cherry to top up their lists — the supplemental selection period (SSP) and the 2021 mid-season rookie draft (MSD). The main idea behind both was to enable the fulfillment of immediate needs as a result of injuries or unexpected retirements but this year, we have seen the added dimension of straight out recruitment for the future rather than for now. As a consequence, a number of ready

    LION TAMERS by George On The Outer

    In an enthralling game between two top four sides, it was the Demons who tamed the Lions, and propelled themselves into the position of premiership favourite even though the season is barely past the halfway mark. This is because Melbourne keeps on beating those teams around them who might provide a challenge. Not only that, it keeps winning with emphatic displays of resilience and toughness that have not been seen in a Demons side for many, many years. Challenged in the first half of

    DUELING BANJOS by Whispering Jack

    In the classic Australian poem, A B “Banjo” Paterson sought the answer by letter to a question concerning the whereabouts of a drover named “Clancy”. The response from Clancy’s shearing mate was written with a thumb-nail dipped in tar: “Clancy’s gone to Queensland droving, and we don’t know where he are.” Most of us would have felt a little bit that way earlier in the week wondering about the possible whereabouts of the Melbourne team for this week’s encounter against Brisbane. Were th

    DOGGED DEEFENCE by George on the Outer

    “No-one let the Dogs out” was the Demons response for the (former) top side.  The Melbourne defence, capably lead by Steven May and Jake Lever simply suffocated any hopes that the Western Bulldogs might have had about leading the competition at the mid-way point. Instead, it is the Demons who now sit at the top of the ladder, again a game clear, while their supporters are starting to believe that this side is the real deal.  Pity is that those same supporters couldn’t watch their team demol

    LOOK AWAY DEMON FANS by The Oracle

    Last week I predicted a comfortable Melbourne victory for its game against Adelaide. “Something in the order of 61 points”, I opined. Well, after the game, I checked the wording of my preview very carefully from all angles and I have now concluded that I have to issue an apology to Demon fans. I got it wrong. I’m not bitter and twisted about my error in failing to predict the coaching errors, defensive mistakes, lack of forward pressure and, of course, the complete failure of those officiat

    CALM BEFORE THE CALM by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons overcame a sluggish first half to run over the Sydney Swans in the second to record an emphatic 40 point victory, maintaining their undefeated record and retaining top spot on the VFL ladder. The game originally listed as part of the Round 4 fixture but delayed due to a Covid19 scare in Sydney and the scrappy way in which the teams approached the contest suggested that the players were still in delay mode. This applied in particular to most of the 12 AFL listed Casey player

    NOTHING TO CROW ABOUT by George On The Outer

    Melbourne’s nine game winning streak  came to an end in Adelaide with a one point loss to the Crows. Losing to a team that had only won three games for the season, having lost five in a row was certainly nothing to crow about.  All around the ground players collectively put in their poorest performance for the year.  The loss of Christian Salem before the match was critical, as his replacement Nev Jetta is a mere shadow the player he once was. The mind is still willing, but the body no

    CRYING OVER SPILT MILK by The Oracle

    It had to happen sooner or later. Melbourne has been riding high through the season to date and, with the exception of a small bunch of nuff nuffs who are never satisfied with anything, the club has attracted more positive vibes from the community in these nine weeks than it did in the past decade. So it came as no surprise to see some low grade stirring of the sort which only the media could come up with at a time like this. The on line site Zero Hanger came up with an article that opined,

    CATNIPPED by KC from Casey

    After winning big away from home across the first three rounds of the new look VFL competition, the Casey Demons were forced to dig deep against Geelong VFL at Casey Fields on Saturday. The traditional AFL based teams were evenly matched, fielding ten listed players apiece and this was reflected in the evenness of the game and the final margin which saw the home side leading by a solitary point on the final siren. Casey suffered an early blow when Jake Bowey came off with what ap

    BLUES IN THE RED by George On The Outer

    While the Demons’ undefeated run continues unabated now at 9-0 their emphatic 26 point victory pushed the Blues to their sixth loss for the season and deeper into the red for the year. While Melbourne opened proceedings with an early goal, the Blues responded with the next two to grab an early lead.  However, as has happened in so many games this year, the Demons fought back to lead by just over a goal come the first break. This narrow lead was part of a streak either side of quarter t
