A message to the marketing department



Recommended Posts


On some occasions such as the Fed Square pre-QB match celebration and the open training at Gosch’s before our QF, Zurich were handing out flags and mini-figure key rings and plastic beakers.
My guess is that it’s not done at the ground anymore because much of this free stuff is left after the match and ends up as rubbish.

So blame the fans, rather than find a solution.

here’s what you receive at other sports to help lift the noise . Sponsored. Marketing 101

If that rubbish is handed out the marketing department deserve to be chased from the ground under a hail of bottles.

I go to the football to watch the football, not to receive little trinkets of garbage.

Little trinkets of garbage are so related to many of our third and fourth quarters, this season. They (the trinkets) might have been quite appropriate and at the same time, condescending. it would also be of some early value to receive little trinkets of garbage in that scenario early - just before game time - as an indicator and pacifier of what was about to come onfield.

Dunno, if I want a moron with an artificial noise maker behind me all game either.

That is a declaration that you don't go to games when the Filth is playing. Neither do I, for similar reasons.

And while we’re at it:

  • The IT department have also been silent. I’d be very suspicious.
  • HR need to have a good long look at themselves. Employees punching up in Prahran is really not on. Who's running HR down there?
  • Building Services is crap. The toilets were disgusting at 11pm on Friday.
  • Sales also need to look in the mirror. Only a 14 percent increase in membership after a flag leaves a lot to be desired.
  • And as for the engineering department . . . don't get me started on Goody - that's all I can say.

Really and truly . . . what the hell is going on Pertie?

it's funny that i made mention of the thunderclap sticks and suddenly that's become the basis for the whole thread. There is more to it than 'trinkets', but I guess i'll leave it there. The are many ways to create extra hype for games and drag a few new supporters in, maybe some neutrals too. We were given prime time on many Fridays and Saturdays, but did nothing with them. There was barely any atmosphere at all. People will say it should be organic, but many of our marquee slots were against interstate teams. As such, the atmosphere was dull. To whoever mentioned the Demon Spirit merch range, that's AFL arranged not club.

I'm not sure this is a marketing issue but my feeling is that who we are trying to get on board as members might be part of this issue.

I remember when PJ was in charge, he was very big on 3 areas of conversion: new arrivals to Melbourne from interstate, the international student market/Chinese migrant community and the Casey area which CS had been cultivating.

When we made finals in '18, a lot of the faces in the crowd weren't necessarily people you would automatically expect to be Melbourne supporters. There were heaps of non-Anglo people in the crowd along with lots of converts from the market PJ had been targeting. There was not one complaint about us being timid back then. If anything, our crowd support in those two finals got us over the line. It wasn't quite Collingwood or Richmond levels of passion but we were very vocal. Listen to the reaction to Mitch Hannan's goal and tell me otherwise.

While presiding over a premiership isn't anything to sneeze at, I've heard Perty mostly focusing on convincing former members to come back and supporters who aren't members to get on board when he has been talking about growing the club. There is potential out there to grow it that way but it's limited potential.

We have done well in embracing modernity as of late. I reckon PJ's strategy was better and will generate more passionate crowds.

Aren't you going to defend the inference that you have a "giant head" WCW?

Surely they have some vuvuzelas left over from the 2010 World Cup? Why don't we give that a whirl?

    GRAND NEW FLAG by Meggs

    Daisy was at pains to tell everyone who asked that the grand final story was NOT the Daisy Pearce story.  She wanted people to focus on the Melbourne Football Club, our wonderful players and non-playing teammates, her legacy buddy head coach Mick Stinear, the assistant coaches, the Club volunteers, the Board, the administrators, #DeeArmy, all supporters, in fact anyone who bleeds for the red and the blue.  But it is also a bit about the pioneer, role model, mother who is Daisy Pearce

    EYES ON THE PRIZE by Meggs

    The Stinear/Pearce partnership has evolved over the 7 AFLW seasons and they have built a team with talented, committed footballers who play for each other and execute a highly entertaining brand of footy. On Sunday can a premiership be added to this legacy? This may well be the last time we see Daisy in the mighty red and blue as she contemplates her start date for a coaching role ‘Down at Kardinia Park’.  Last week’s sensational sealer in the Prelim showed everybody that Daisy could s

    DAISY’S DEMON DRIVE by Meggs

    On a blustery Saturday afternoon when the conditions affected marking skills and the ball bounced unpredictably, the Mighty Dees stuck fat against a determined Kangaroos outfit to break away with two final quarter goals to none to win AFLW Preliminary Final 2 by 17 points — an all-time high winning margin between these two teams.  From the outset it was a fiercely fought contest with Melbourne unable to find the ball in space. North really amped up their one-percenters an

    NOT A MOMENT TO MISS by Meggs

    The AFLW Season 7 fixture was carefully crafted to purposely handicap the better teams and give the expansion and developing sides an easier draw.  Nonetheless, this weekend’s Preliminary Finals will showcase the Lions, Demons, Crows and Roos, teams widely accepted as the best 4 in the competition.   In Friday night’s Prelim 1 the minor premiers, Brisbane, will start warm favourites at home against Adelaide.   On Saturday afternoon at Ikon Park, Prelim 2 between Melbourne and North is

    STICK TO YOUR GUNS by Meggs

    The Dees convincingly overcome the fast-starting reigning-premiers Adelaide to win by 21 points in a fiery Qualifying Final match at Ikon Park on Friday evening.     In that first quarter Adelaide jumped out of the blocks kicking their first goal inside 20 seconds finishing with 3 goals to nil. All was quiet at Ikon Park.     Melbourne, having easily outplayed lesser opponents over the past six weeks took time to ratchet up their intensity.  But, by mid to late first quarter, the Dees be

    HEAVYWEIGHTS by Meggs

    AFLW heavyweights Melbourne and Adelaide kick off the AFLW Season 7 Final Series with a massive Qualifying Final clash at Ikon Park this Friday night at 7:10pm.  The game promises to be a cracker.   Last season’s Grand Final combatants last met in Round 1where Melbourne came away with a strong 18-point victory at Glenelg Oval. The Dees will be hoping to replicate the result and move directly to the Preliminary Final.    While Adelaide may not have been as intimidating this season as in p

    MISSED IT BY THAT MUCH by Meggs

    Congratulations to Daisy’s Dees on a huge 78-point one-sided win against West Coast in challenging windy and wet conditions at Casey Fields.     The banner celebrating Sarah Lampard’s 50 games was a victim of the wind, but nonetheless Lampy received a warm round of applause from the parochial crowd in attendance.   Melbourne has the double-chance and is excited about its chances in the Season 7 AFLW finals. If this means the Grand Final is played at Metricon and the Demond make it, then

    LIVE IN THE MOMENT by Meggs

    The final home and away match of Season 7, sees the mighty Dees at Fortress Casey hosting the 16th placed West Coast.     A win assures the Dees of a Top-2 finish, with the ultimate placings dependent upon the previous night’s result between Brisbane and Collingwood and the relative percentages.   As our match is anticipated to be one-sided, interest may turn to monitoring the live ladder to see whether or not Melbourne has secured the minor premiership.     The Demons (Lions and Cro

    BOMBED by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne has all but assured itself of a top two finish to the (second) 2022 AFLW season after crushing Essendon by 41 points on Sunday. It now holds a four point lead over third placed Adelaide along with a handy percentage advantage with one round remaining before the finals. The Demons opened kicking with the advantage of the squally wind that often prevails at Casey Fields and for the third week in a row, they kept their opponents scoreless in the opening term.
