    They'll wait until we win a flag to join, then if we don't go back to back, complain about it.

    well i'm sure lots of supporters can see we're on the right path, but does that translate into wanting to shell out for a membership? are we an attractive club to be a part of for the average supporter?

    I personally think this is as attractive as we've been since 99-01.

    No Mathieson interfering, building properly for the long term, oodles of young talent, young & vibrant coach, club legend as list manager.

    What else can we do?

    Question we have 5 sunday 3.20 starts this year amongst our 11 home games . Which to me definately doesnt encourage family membership numbers . Do we know how our family member numbers are tracking this year compared to other years ? .

    If they were to link up with Virgin Australia for a 10% airfares discount for members, memberships would fly off the shelves

    There's a 3 game MCG deal that may sway a few. Starts after tigers game

    Would be nice to hit the 50k mark.

    A competitive finish to the season should see us doing the same again next season.

    If you can't see the light now then you never will........

    Is that considered a membership?

    I really struggle to understand why 3-game packages & pets etc all get lumped into the membership totals.

    Full memberships should be the only "bragging" statistic given out, anything else is just falsely inflating the real value overall.

    This is not to denigrate international, interstate or 3-gamers, just think a true measuring stick should be established.

    wholeheartedly agree....although considering i live interstate i feel my 'interstate' membership is legit in comparison to a 3 game package.

    Was going to post this in the Think Tank Thread, so hope posting it here is suitable.

    It seems most clubs, including us, just roll out membership options without much innovation.

    Perhaps we could be ahead of the pack and create something new for a change.

    Customised Membership

    I travel a fair bit with work, but generally organise my trips well in advance. Many people would also know regular functions that they would be attending during the year, such as weddings, birthdays, bar mitzvahs, etc.

    Why not have a membership, that you can select which games you would like to attend, during the course of the year no matter where it is played.

    Each game could have a monetary value attached (Blockbusters worth more & vice versa ). I would be happy to pay slightly more for this sort of membership, to ensure I get what suits me

    As for clubs, boasting about membership numbers, ( 3 Game, Pet, seem somewhat irrelevant ), maybe it should be released as total membership dollars?

    Great to get an email from the club giving an invite to a young members function pre the doggies game, something like this and this level of engagement has been a long time coming. Can also bring along a mate for 40 bucks, this is inclusive of a 3 game membership. A great way to bring on the fence supporters into the fold!

    Disagree. What's the point of a supporter who doesn't have a membership and doesn't attend games?

    Our books are dismal by all accounts and we're one of the most 'barracked' for teams around. Unfortunately a lot of the carlton barrackers don't jump on unless we're winning.

    Some people can't afford it. Some people have other priorities, young families, they work weekends etc. Doesn't mean they're not true supporters.

    Before I left Melbourne I was a captain's club level member year in, year out. Unfortunately, moving interstate, not having employment for periods of a time and having serious health issues has meant that I could no longer retain that level of membership. I'm now an interstate member. I would hope that, aside from seating priority for any finals that we play, I'm considered no less a fan of the football club now than when I was living in Melbourne.

    The GM of Carlton Membership in 2010 screwed many 1000's of supporters. Many have not retured. He's no longer at the club but his work proved to be a stain through that period that still lingers.

    Depends what you consider support to mean I guess. I'd say the vast majority of non member, non game attending supporters are that due to reasons less noble than those you gave. Us losing being a pretty common one.
