There are way more Melbourne fans than North, Dogs and St Kilda. I actually do see potential for Melbourne to reach a decent level of memberships. The other three are just full blown minnows. St Kilda are probably the worst. I sometimes forget they even exist. At least the Dogs have large support in the west and will capitalise on the rapid development in the growth corridors. St Kilda are trying to tap into the south east but they’re dreaming. They’re just not marketable enough. Essendon have a stronghold of the north west, so that makes North irrelevant just about everywhere.

The gap between the big clubs and small clubs will just widen further over the years. We’ll hit 150,000 before North hit 75,000.
WB problem is that they still don’t dominate the west allegiances will always be divided my office is full of folks from the western subs , 1 barracks for the dogs

Most Melbourne fans I have met are interstate/overseas relocaters.. they pick a team and support Melbourne thinking it’s the home team when they move here not realising that there are almost dozen teams in the one city.

Having said that I don’t hang around many polo/yacht/rowing clubs.

Not all MCC members are Melbourne supporters.
Out of 100,000 MCC members, they only make up 20,000.
I'm an MCC member and I still buy my Richmond membership.

Pissweak excuse.

last time i saw b.gale he was wearing a gold neck brace just to keep his massive head from falling down
When they build the statue to the great man they can model the neck brace like one of the neck ruffles King Henry VIII used to wear.

someone posted on the mb that we only have 19k compared to colonwood 30k and bummers 28k ?
My first reaction is bullshit , the mcc doesn’t allocate 30,000 rsserved seats as that would leave < 10,000 GA on any one week when you add AFL + MCC = 60,000, who said this , gopy

we are talking reserved seats in the g not mcc
i know , the mcc wouldn’t allocate 30,000 to a tenant club for res seats , as that’s 3/4 of the capacity after you count mcc and afl members . Whatever our allocation is has been sold out , there was an extra lot added with roaming tiger last year
