Plenty of other ways to voice concern and still help financially.
It is the modern way to take ones business elsewhere. Don't agree with it myself but that is the lay of the land.

Ultimately when we are in times like now when belts are being tighened spending money on a poorly peforming football team is down the list. If the team was peforming well then it becomes a a harder thing to cut.

No, if you can't afford it then that's a different story. For those that can but want to punish the club by not supporting financially then that's the issue. I'm sure many of those 1000 that dropped off are in that boat and it's sad.

And the club just can't take its members for granted and need to offer a good and decent product in return for the members loyalty, 2 Adults 2 kids over 16 reserved seats is a good bit of coin George

That wasn't the point George, the way we have gone as a club over the last couple of years I fully understand why people are not spending their hard earned on a Saints membership
Yeah I know. I'm just saying there's other ways to go about it and it hurts the club.

It's more easy to understand given there's so much more competition for your dollar. 10 years ago the A-league wasn't as popular as it is today, there was no such thing as BBL, things like the NFL and American sports have become more mainstream.

Footy has become a money driven business. All a membership is these days is an investment into a brand of footy. It's sh*t and I don't like it for a minute but it's the way things have become.

New coach should get some positiveness. Also has stupid as it is each membership only gives you $90 profit on average which seems redicoulous.

Late to the conversation I know, but I recall a discussion taking place about St Kilda’s Jewish community and their support (or lack thereof) of the Saints.
Would the club be open to having a Jewish heritage night? Plenty of clubs in the US run something along the lines of it in acknowledgment of jewish communities.
We could replace the cross for a star of David on the crest..
