"I'm buying half the stadium tickets"

Share pls.
I’m going with my dad, my brother (both Richmond supporters), my sister-in-law and my Mum.

Was originally just going to be dad and I but then dad asked my brother, who said he and his partner would go too and then dad talked my mother (ex-essendrugs supporter who now hates AFL) into going.

I do generally go to the football on my own though.

haha pies fans making up crap about why we have 20k more members than em. none of the following is even close to true

They have a cheaper package to GF tickets (Maurice Rioli package IIRC), which is $250 compared to our cheapest being $800.
That package only includes access to GF tickets I believe, but it counts as one membership when bought and then fans with buy a home game membership or something for a bit more. Overall this counts as 2 memberships while only 1 member is a holder of said memberships.
wish i could get gf maurice rioli club for $250 lel

i always buy my mrc membership knowing that I will be counted as 2 people, and I wouldnt want it any other way :drunk:
I always buy a family membership which consists of 4 people, should this now be counted as only 1 to please Collingwood fans who feel a bit jilted?

Collingwood supporters are so dumbfounded by our membership numbers they don't want to believe that the numbers are legit, so they make stuff up to convince themselves it's not. Such as counting pets or double counting memberships when it's not the case.

Is that the club record or the recognised official AFL record?
I believe that is the higher AFL audited figure. Yes, that's right our number went up after the audit last year.
.... unlike another club who will remain nameless (kind of) has it's number's reduced post audit after claiming to be the first club to reach 80,000 members. hmmmm...

I'm a bit like my old nanna who, due to the depression, kept turning off lights, darning socks and re-using every bit of rubbish she could get her hands on.

I care not about the membership numbers, but just as long as it is money in the Tiger bank.

I still have nightmares about OUR depression when they almost took our premiership cups but were talked into taking the tea room microwave oven instead.

I care...I care a lot...because we are monstering the Magpies yet again and they just don't know how to deal with it. They are the Arthur Fonzarelli's of football. They thought they were the biggest, but they just can't say the magic words 'we were wrong'.


Our crushing superiority in membership and support is the gift that just keeps on giving :p
