Just had the worst interaction with the club. Ordered two indigenous guernseys, only one arrived. Called them on 3 separate occasions, "we'll check it out and get back to you". Never did.

Call them again today. "Oh sorry we didn't send it to you but there are no Large size left, only 2XL will that suit? We aren't making any more. Oh ok, we will refund it then."

Probably never would have even got a refund if I hadn't called them over and over. And wtf happened to the guernsey I originally paid for?

So pi**ed off. We need to do better than this.

Thanks mate. That one is actually sold out. However you helped me to get over my sudden anger and have a hunt around and I found one on ebay. Crisis averted :)
All good - Club should've updated their website to reflect they were out of stock a lot quicker. Same as the AFL website I guess - when I went on there it said they had them available.

Wouldn't stock levels be a thing that's automatically updated when people buy things?

My dad is 91 and he is a lifetime Saints supporter. He said that as a kid he used to go to all the home games at the Junction oval and the Saints were known back then as "The Jew Boys" as there were so many Jewish Saints players and Jewish supporters in the 1930's.

Rather than yell out "Go saints" the crowd in the outer would often yell out "Go Jew Boys!"

Fast forward 85 years... I do a lot of work in Caulfield North and St Kilda East, and the majority of the Jewish people I meet follow the Saints (at least the ones that follow footy). So I would be surprised if we weren't the most popular team amongst the Jewish community.

Carlton has a lot too.

They absolutely do look amazing.

People usually love boxed "goodies"...…..it can look so damn professional.

A friend who is in the Halo's coterie group told me a few years back that they used to receive all their tickets......info.....passes etc in a gift box in saints colours pre season....she said it looked magnificent.

That all stopped around the end of the Watters years......I suspect money in the club was extremly tight around those years.
Should give members a few options.

Have like 3 packs.

I want one of those corporate ties. They look awesome.

It's a long time ago, but I have a vague recollection of watching Ajax play (maybe I was playing against them, or just watching - I can't remember). It seemed to be almost entirely Jewish players and I think they were wearing the saints colours. Correct me on all that if it's mistaken.

Maybe no connection between that and the Junction oval days but your post made me wonder for a moment if there might have been.
The AJAX Football Club is an Australian rules football club sited in the inner suburb of St Kilda, Victoria. The squad competes in the Victorian Amateur Football Association. Having been established by the Melbourne Jewish community in 1957, Ajax is notable as Australia's first and only fully Jewish club in the sport.

Thanks mate, now I really wonder how AJAX's formation relates to what RobbieMuir was talking about. Of course I know the Elsternwick, East St. Kilda area is a big Jewish area.

My club plays them today. I will go in showers after the game to confirm if they are Jewish

Got a survey from the club earlier in the week regarding the Membership and some other aspects of the club. I'd recommend everyone use it to let the club what you think.

It's the same one from last year. One of the questions even has 2018 in it.
But I agree - I submitted mine with a glowing endorsement of the Membership Department and all involved (seriously, those guys and girls are fantastic). The questions about the sponsors are tiresome though.

Lol still has 2018 in it

It's so disappointing how these careless errors just keep coming up with club media. Typos, etc. I can't think of specific examples but there have been enough over the last few years, albeit it's much better than it used to be. Small stuff individually, but collectively points to lack of professionalism or care.

A world away from communication from clubs like Hawthorn and Essendon.

Isn’t the survey being run by a third party “specialist”?
Maybe they’re the ones to address.

The sponsor stuff would be so that the club can go to a sponsor and say "See you brand is being remembered by our members"

Oh absolutely PS. No question. I found it tiresome is all, there weren’t many that were relevant to my circumstances. Everyone is different of course.

The margin compared to last year may be widening but to be this close after what a horrible year it was is probably a good sign.
Honestly thought the first 5 rounds would have seen us ramp it up a bit membership wise. Hopefully we set a strong base for the rest of the year so that we get some more signed on for 2020.

Yeah, like when they post training photos on Facebook and label the players incorrectly. I've seen that a few times. Pretty embarrassing.
