Are you a AFC member or AO member?I’ll be at the AGM 100% and will wear a raincoat in preparation for being spat on and have apricot slices thrown at me by the oldies for dare questioning what the club is doing and the direction it is going.
Had a family member have a strokeI sold my tickets late last year but kept the membership in my name.had a stroke around Christmas and would find it too bloody difficult to get to my seats due to stairs. So I expect to sell them again later in the year. I swear if I put the same effort this year as the crows have, I’d still be in a hospital bed.
You have to look deeper than the raw numbers. Only 4 of 18 teams recorded reduction in membership numbers. We are the only one of the top 7 clubs in membership to record a reduction. St Kilda, Freo and Port were the on,y other clubs to record a reduction in membership.What I found interesting was looking at the figures the other day and seeing that numbers had only dropped off slightly (less than a thousand) from 2018 to 2019. Did I read that correctly?
If that’s accurate you’d have to assert that AFC members are the most stunningly loyal of any fans in the game.
That media conference with Pyke and Burton last year was the most incredibly disastrous PR spectacle almost in the history of the AFL. Everything the club did from a PR perspective last year, up to and including that horrific media conference, was wrong. It was a how-to manual on everything you could fu** up while dealing with a potential brand disintegration.
So they f’ed up twice. Once, with the camp. Two, with the handling of the fallout. Two colossal fu**-ups that derailed an entire season of football.
And yet, they’ve paid no price. Not a single person involved paid a price. Nothing. Zero. Including from a membership perspective.
Is it any wonder they continue on thinking their s**t doesn’t stink?
This is my point. When the decisions being made are not conducive to change and improvement ("lets just do the same things with the same players and same assistants") Why bother? It's getting us nowhere but backwardsStill undecided re membership, will probably hold but probably shouldn’t given how bad this club has become.
As others have said, happy to stick with the club through tough times, but when the tough times are of our own making and we refuse to make obvious corrections due to sheer arrogance and incompetence of leadership... that’s a differnt story.
That’s no good mate! Hopefully you can get seats that are fully accessible. Hope your rehab is moving forward for you.I sold my tickets late last year but kept the membership in my name.had a stroke around Christmas and would find it too bloody difficult to get to my seats due to stairs.

Baaa ha ha ha, the movie or the series?I s**t you not, the missus and I had that for dinner last night. Party Balfours pies and chips, cooked in our air fryers, eaten in bed while watching Veronica Mars. What a night, much better than getting plastered at the golf club and blowing $150 like I used to do week in and week out.
Veronica Mars, she’s sassy!!!
