Entertaining football sells memberships.

The casual arm chair supporter isn't going to take out a membership and subsequently attend our remaining home games if we're going to continue to kick 6 to 8 goals a game.

Arm chair should still buy a 3 game membership to belong.  I cannot folk whos day they are supporters but do not belong. It’s only $12 a month direct debit.   We only go to a few games but always renew membership no matter what.

I blame the board.

It should be 68k, end of last year.

 

Yes Kate Roffey's handball ing is very weak snd that BradGreen doesn't kick like he used to.

What a  stupid comment. Blame the Board!!

Prey tell why you blame them and not the players snd Coach's or other reasons like injuries perhaps? 

And what is the significance of 68k? Last year it was 66,000 odd. It's about 1,500 below now and there was a late rush near the end when we finished second on the ladder last season. 

I bet many D/Landers are waiting to hear your explanation please or are you saying this tongue in cheek which is just as stupid!

Apologies of sorts as allI I read was from the  last comment/s and also missed the post or whatever has been posted  to members. My emails have not been checked for yesterday so there may be a MFC email with this good news, however it's occurred.

PS In my defence also yesterday I was busy flying from Lisbon to Amsterdam for pleasure not business and out with friends last night and that's why I turned immediately to the last two emails on Page 18 in the membership category as I thought we may have got to 65,000 but not to 67,000 plus.

So Jontee May we'll have the last laugh!!

I'm not sure why people get so worked up about membership numbers - it is the membership dollars that matter. We could buy our way to 70K members by giving away $10 memberships for the last three home games, but what does that really achieve?

My son gets a free 3 game St Kilda membership with his SMJFL fees each year. That is potentially several thousand kids included in St Kilda's membership numbers each year that neither barrack for St Kilda or contribute to the club. As an aside, they also gave him two free tickets to be used during the year, so we used those to attend Saturday's game for nothing. Thanks SKFC.

It gets their name on the clubs list. They then pound you with membership details for the rest of your life.

Question for anyone that might know...

I'm considering changing my club membership (GA home games) to AFL silver membership (40 games MCG/Marvel) as I will be going to all our games anyway, plus I usually go to at least 10 neutral games per season so it'd work out cheaper.

I know I can nominate MFC as my club of support, but was just curious if I switched whether I would still retain my consecutive years of membership with the MFC?

Also, how do I actually do it? 

Do I have to apply for AFL membership with the AFL, and then separately cancel the MFC one?

Or does the AFL handle the transfer with the MFC, similar I guess to changing mobile phone plans?

Yes, you will retain consecutive years of membership.  The CRM system of MFC is somewhat antiquated, but the AFL shares the customer data with the club and they do a reconciliation.  If in doubt, contact the MFC membership department to track down and consolidate your entries.

Yep you retain your consecutive years of membership. We switched to AFL membership around 1997 I think but my MFC membership is recognised since 1989.

You're better off signing up to AFL membership first and contacting the MFC to let them know. Make sure they remove the direct debit from your current MFC membership though.

The biggest benefit is in regards to finals tickets. Last year most MFC members would have paid $80 each to go to our two finals games but as an AFL member you only pay a $20 or so booking fee. AFL Silver members pay full price for prelim tickets ($170ish I think) but full/gold members get in for basically nothing again ($20). Full members get first access to GF tickets if your club is playing and pay half price ($200 or so) but Silver members are unlikely to get tickets even if they're club is playing so you might need to get a GF guarantee through MFC on top of your AFL membership until you become a full member (current wait seems to be around 18-20 years). The cost is basically the difference between a silver ($470) and full ($645) AFL membership so it basically evens out. But you'll be paying full price for any GF ticket (around $400).

All the ticket prices above are based on tickets on level 1.

Are we top 8 around the league? In terms of memberships.

Going by this, we are either 7th or 8th - depends on how many Adelaide have.

What's a "paln"?

67k+ is outstanding, particularly given the global pandemic decimating two of those 4 years. I for one applaud the ambition Gary Pert demonstrated in setting the 75k goal.

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    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
