If they did that then watch the membership prices go up a lot.....Maybe. Personally I don't see a heap of extra cost in having a handful of stickers of say NMFC Member, NMFC 10Y, NMFC 25Y etc. I mean personally I don't care that much but I do think the little things can be done often for similar costs to what already exists and it means something to a lot of people out there. For me the biggest issue is dilution of Melbourne home games and there isn't really much of anything they can do to make me happier outside of clawing back more Home games with reserved seating.
Completely agree. My two are six and 12 and were massively underwhelmed when the packs arrived. It was a shame, because the pack arrival and opening has always been something that excited them and helped to keep them enthusiastic about the club.Reading that Member Q&A makes me angry. Membership dept completely losing touch with fans. It should be easy - buy your membership, feel that the club appreciates it, that they want you to be showing the colours. They know that you know it's just a cap or scarf or sticker or keyring or lanyard, but there's a sense of pride receiving and wearing that stuff. I understand that there is some COVID cost cutting going on but this is just alienating people. It might just be a bumper sticker or whatever, but it's symbolically more important to members. Market research has determined this? Bullshit
My kids got the Future Roos pack - they're 15 and 13. It was shithouse. They opened it, saw a crap footy a 6yo wouldn't play with, a pathetically low-quality backpack and some voucher system that would take all season to pay off - go to 7 games and you might get scarf? They only have to miss one and "No scarf for you!!" And let's say you do get your scarf after 7 games, there's no more home games to wear it at anyway!! Better quality packs? Total bullshit.
I used to feel some symbiotic relationship with my NMFC membership - I needed them, they needed me and we mutually demonstrated respect and appreciation. This year it feels more like, "Thanks for recommitting even though you really didn't get anything last year and we can't guarantee anything this year. But that's not our fault so here's.....nothing."
The clubs social media team is excellent in deflecting. Emails are pointless.Instead off voicing your disgust here, send some emails to the club. Enough people complain they may think twice.
They must see the hammering their getting on social media about this.
Call them and let them know how you feel, there is a chance they'll throw the cards in for free.I get the whole reasoning but I can’t help but feel a bit frustrated/underwhelmed at this digital membership. Being in Brisbane my membership is always basically a donation. It’s always a nice feeling to have your membership come in the mail with the stickers, card, letter, scarf, etc. It feels like you’re apart of it even if you can’t get to the games. Now it’s literally nothing.
This can go and fu** right off. I pay big enough dollars to sit in the seat I have reserved for the past 15 ******* years.RESERVED SEATS
In the early stages of the season, you will be allocated a reserved seat upon ticket redemption.
We are hoping you can return to your designated reserved seat later in the season, which will depend on Government health advice.
‘Ah, right, um, yeah, a few people have mentioned this to us and we are still waiting for Gill to get off his polo horse and give us a straight answer’
