Latest update in table above, with comparison back to 2011.

A bit ahead of 2020 at this stage, but behind 2019, not surprisingly

They had better win the first game George or it will dead in the water.

Saints are 10,000 more than us.

And, Carlton have 74,000+ members and they've had far less success than us.  North not far behind us with 33,400 members even tho they have been a shambles for several years.

We are not travelling well vs those less performing Vic clubs who were similarly affected by lack of live games in 2020 due to covid.

These comparisons should be setting off alarm bells at the club..

Do you know LH if the comparisons are based on full memberships or total (including kids, pets, 3 games etc.) I know the Saints went very heavy advertising for 3 game memberships a year or 2 ago and most of those have been automatically rolled over.

Sorry, I don't know the mix.  I guess all membership provide opportunities for sponsors and broadcasters and give clubs leverage with the AFL.

We did something different this year.  I was offered a renewal of two Redleg memberships in Nov for $1 and they would send the full membership pack before Christmas which they did.  And if I didn't cancel it the full amount would be charged on March 1.  Needless to say I didn't cancel it.

Just to clarify - on March 1, I paid the full Redleg membership for two.  The $1 'deposit', I think was to get an emotional committment.

I think the only reason for that offer was because I had cancelled my automatic renewal as I wasn't happy with 2020.  I suspect other members who hadn't paid by end of Oct, were given the same offer.

My son automatically gets a 3 game St Kilda membership with his SMJFL registration. I suspect their numbers are highly inflated.

I also expect that a LOT of MFC members will have downgraded their memberships this year - numbers may be comparable to last year, but dollars will be significantly down. But if numbers are what matters to broadcasters and the like, we desperately need to find a way to piggy back off the work of one of these large community organisations.

Thanks for that info poita! it's why it's hard to take some of the numbers on face value. Number might make the broadcasters happy but $ is what makes the world go round, it's probably why we're in a reasonably healthy financial position while the saints are very much struggling with huge debts.

Membership revenue is all that matters. Hawks pet membership and Saints/Dogs free ones are a joke really. Membership numbers are just a [censored] measuring contest.

I don't know about that. With Gold Coast and GWS aside we have the smallest following of any club.

Mega ring and leave a number for a call back rather than staying on line. I think they are being inundated with members ringing with booking queries.

Yeah I got through today. I thought about getting a call back but I’m just too busy at work to take a call. Ended up calling during my lunch break.

I guess it’s a good thing that they’re busy. Hopefully getting some members signed up.

Facts are we topped North snd Bulldogs by 2,000 last year 

A Re over 3,000 more than North in 2021 presume Doggies would be ahead at this stage.

whatever happens in Rounds 1-6 will decide our figure. We are only 3,000 below record of 2019 which spiked due to 2018 success.

Yes the style of membership is important and the Ballarat Bullfigs plus Hobart of Tasmanian Roos would be adding 1,000 to 3/4,000 I would think,

Interesting to see apart from 2019 not much net growth at all over a decade, though some volatile increases recently correlating (?) to buzz/results.

Looks like there's a rusted on base, and some may join up then drop off....

I have emailed the club 3 times asking for someone to call me about renewing  membership, GF guarantee and pledge per win for me and my father. I also want to sign my first set of twins up as member and have a second set of twins due in April that I want to sign up if possible.

Not heard anything from the club, makes me want to give up ??

    A LITTLE MAGIK by George On The Outer

    With the game against Carlton all but lost, there was little chance the Demons could pull this one from out of the fire … with a little bit of magiK!   MagiK with a “K” in the form of Kysaiah Pickett, who miraculously managed to get foot to ball in the dying seconds to secure the win for the Demons. Along with plenty of magiK from Jake MelKsham during the game. Marking the ball while lying on his back, dancing through a bevy of Carlton backmen to score and then marking among three tall

    GREY INTO WHITE by KC from Casey

    The rains came as predicted to Casey Fields on Sunday along with a fair lashing of wind that made for the type of game that you expect in such inhospitable conditions - a grim, dour festival of scrappy football made for strong-bodied sides such as the undefeated competition leaders. And so it came to pass that the Casey Demons were able to trample over Carlton’s VFL side in the final half of their Round 21 match up to maintain their undefeated record for 2022.

    DOWNFALL? by Whispering Jack

    Half a season ago, Saturday night’s Round 22 match up between Melbourne and Carlton would have been looked upon as a mouthwatering contest to determine positions at the top of the AFL mountain in the lead up to an exiting finals series for both clubs. However, this once much-anticipated contest is today considered almost as a consolation event between two of the most disappointing teams in the competition. At least the Blues have some sort of excuse for their downfall — they have been dogge

    HORSING AROUND by George On The Outer

    Before the match it was claimed that Collingwood were a “one trick pony” side.  Well that one trick worked very well against Melbourne, as they extended their winning streak to 11 for the season. Meanwhile, the Demons continued to horse around with structures which simply haven’t been working. The one tall forward option with resting rucks failed yet again, in an almost identical manner to the game against the Bulldogs recently.  93 more possessions, 65 inside 50 entries 24 more than the op

    THE BUBBLE by The Oracle

    "I feel like we've got more than enough experience in close games. It'd be nice to win one by five or six goals and have that pulse lower a little bit late in games, but that's not our story." — Scott Pendlebury on the eve of his team’s forthcoming Round 21 game against Melbourne. When you read words such as these, you know it’s time for Melbourne fans to be humble. The old enemy is up and about while our mantle of invincibility has vanished into thin air.

    ANCHORS AWEIGH! by George on the Outer

    So came the cry from the Dockers as the S.S. Fremantle set sail with the hopes of all of their supporters on board on the mighty ship. Their task was to do nothing more than to defeat the Melbourne side and a top four position on the ladder was assured. The problem for them was that their leaky boat came up against the mighty battleship - Team Demon and it didn’t take long after they left port for their vessel to develop a multitude of leaks. The first salvo was fired by First Officer

    SWEET SIXTEEN by KC from Casey

    The game was an uneven match up from the very beginning. The Casey Demons, representing an alignment between the reigning premiers Melbourne and the outer southeastern expansion area centred around a sprawling Cranbourne with its rapid population growth and the stand alone Northern Bullants from the inner north who sit at the foot of the VFL table. With 14 AFL listed players and a couple more having experience at the elite level opening with the breeze at their backs, the result was inevitable.

    THE HUNGER GAME by Whispering Jack

    The game may well have taken place a day short of ten weeks ago but the atmospherics surrounding Friday night’s match between Melbourne (then Narrm) and Fremantle are light years apart from those that prevailed when the teams last faced off the MCG in late autumn. On one hand, the Demons were in the midst of a 17 game winning spree that included a drought breaking premiership victory. On the other, the Dockers were coming off a six goal thrashing at Optus Stadium in teeming rain against a then s

    DOG-TIED by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons were extended early against rivals Footscray VFL in their matchup played in wet and greasy conditions at VU Whitten Oval on Saturday but, after establishing their authority in the second quarter, they were able to tie up their opponents at the end to maintain their undefeated run which now stands at 15.  The game began under grey threatening skies and the wet conditions turned the game into a tight slog with scoring kept down to a minimum. The Demons were held goalless agai

    DOG DAY by George On The Outer

    It is said that every dog has its day and that was certainly the case when the Western Bulldogs defeated Melbourne under the roof at the Docklands on Saturday night.   While the Dogs were certainly at the very top of their game, the same couldn’t be said of the Demons. All around the ground, dismal individual performances and dismal team performances were the order of the day.  Fans should have been worried right from the start as the game turned into a goal-fest. This is not their team’

    RAINING CATS & DOGS by Whispering Jack

    Despite winning their game in the Red Centre at the weekend, the consensus among the pundits is that Melbourne’s days in the sun are over. Ten rounds into the season, they were the competition’s top dogs and regarded virtually unbeatable but their recent form (three wins from the last seven games) has put them well below par, perilously clinging onto second spot on the ladder with storm clouds on the horizon. The air of invincibility that once surrounded them is gone and the Demons face a t

    THE KOZZY SHOW by George On The Outer

    Q: Melbourne is playing Port Adelaide at Traeger Park, Alice Springs and once again, it doesn’t have a properly functioning forward line — so from where were the goals going to come?   A: Kysaiah Pickett.     In a one man show in front of his adoring fans, he racked up six majors to give the Demons the edge in the game and to finally run out winners by 14 points.     The result could well have been very different without his efforts with Melbourne failing to score a major
