    I think Sam Simpson should be our choice again.

    You might need to kick in another 20 pledges if we are to get to the Sam range. ;)

    I'll kick in one more to make it $100.

    I was under the impression that the price hike for 2nd year players wasn't that substantial, or am I wrong?

    Being part of the Varcoe and Cockatoo sponsorship the 2nd year didn't differ too much from the first.

    It was about 40%.

    We will give everyone a crack at one $50 pledge before we ask for a repeat shout. But thanks for your generosity.

    Broadly, a pledge is $50 which goes toward a Geelong Board sponsorship of a particular player. That sponsorship gives us certain benefits which we allocate to the pledgers based on a prize draw. Prizes include things like inner sanctum experiences, tickets to season launch event, etc.

    You also get a badge on your name. Like “SIMPSON17” from last season.

    Sorry, badly worded question- have been a sponsor 8x, but just your comment regarding the "price" of sponsoring a Sam Simpson for instance, as opposed to other players, and on that matter, why not Cocky? Varcoe had several years there...

    I’m new to being involved in the organising but my understanding is they place players in different sponsorship ‘tiers’ starting at ‘academy’ for the new draftees, up to ‘Senior’ for the likes of Simpson, and presumably some premium tiers for Hawkins, Dangerfield, Selwood, etc. The tiers determine the price. Simpson is about 50% more than the new draftees.

    The way it worked in the past in terms of tiers/prices that allowed us to have Varcoe for several years must have been different.

    Sounds unnecessarily complex to me.
    Personally got involved as a bit of fun and because it was Varcoe.
    The player matters imo. None of those benefits for the pledger are applicable to me.
    But I'm in.

    As one on the supporter and then the peripheral organizational side, there have also been occasions as I understand it where we had a 50% share of the player - not being the sole sponsor I believe - thus enabling a higher profile player to be maintained. THat also may have a been a unique environment that came about as we were the players legacy sponsor ( Varcoe )
    I’m not sure if that environment still exists and I may be wrong ... again..

    We don’t design it, I’m sure you appreciate.

    But there’s a logic to it from the club’s perspective. It’s a fundraiser at the end of the day. They maximise the fundraising by “exploiting” the best players.

    Thanks for being on board again. Hopefully we back a future premiership player like we did with Varcoe.

    I know we weren't the only sponsor of Cockatoo which might answer my previous thoughts on why it seemed the price hike to sponsor him in his second season wasn't that substantial.
