Obviously getting more and more Direct debit memberships which is good for the club increased cashflow throughout the off season, not that it should be a major worry but having cash is better than expecting cash in all situations really.

I find this a good way of doing it personally, also do it for my Heart membership which is stupidly cheap per month imo....

How much did the Heart set you back? Not getting one this season but considering it for next season...

Also love the membership campaign. Don't anyone forget it!!

Would have also liked 'us against them' after this year. Anyway, sign up people....the Dees will absolutely improve over the next couple of years. Get behind these boys and enjoy the feeling when we climb that ladder.

ergh. "us against them" is lame imo, it suits collingwood, not Melbourne.

With the media's attack on Melbourne this year, I beg to differ. Even non-Melbourne fans I know thought they went overboard.
I get that but it's pretty specific for "us against them" but then "us against the media" doesn't have the same ring to it. Honestly I'd like to think the club can just rise above all that crap, I mean Neeld barely takes the media seriously anyway which is evident in his pressers. The best middle finger to the media I've seen in recent years was the Geelong cheer squad banner "Too old, Too slow, Too good" But I'm not sure if we could have anything like that as we couldn't back it up :p

Fair to say I'm sick of the constant whingeing about our treatment in the media from blokes on here. FFS, we were utterly crap all year following 5 previous years of utter crap. What, do you expect them to go easy and say "oh they're a young team, it's ok"? Rubbish. Of course they will hook into us. That argument might have washed in 2009 but that was three years ago! Understandable, then, that footy people question our worth as an entity when it seems we can't make inroads into being a respectable team.

Some of you are starting to sound like North fans ("it's a conspiracy! They want us to fold!") and it is really quite ridiculous. Pull your heads in.

Of course, I'm not saying the footy media is a shining beacon of morality, but get a grip already.

But yeah, there's been a huge quantity of fictional "reporting" about us over the course of this year - it's certainly not just been simple criticism because we've been struggling on the field.

You're kidding.....right?

The media treament began before there was even a ball bounced and just intensified as the year went on.

There was specific targetting of us. I know this because it was said from the mouth of a very high up official from the club.

The media had an agenda against us this year....it was plain to see

The racism between Neeld and Aboriginal Players (was pushed beyond belief)
The media implying we were not responsible enough in our treament of Jurrah
The implication we sacked Green, despite him saying he was retiring (there were many twisted words and articles)
The setting up of McLean on OTC to spark the tanking fiasco (and no return serve against Carlton when it was a prime opportunity to do so)

If you don't think there was a media driven agenda against us this year, then I'm sorry, it's you who needs to be pulling your head from somewhere

We may have made ourselves a target, but that doesn't make what occurred right

And, riddle me this....how much negative media attention did the Bulldogs cop?

Anyway on the subject of the campaign, I personally believe it's a veiled backhander to those intent on seeing our demise. First...and Forever (no matter the shit you sling at us)

Of course what you and the media are ignoring is that this year was essentially a new start. We have a completely new coaching team and a completely new game plan which the players are getting used to. On top of that Neeld hasn't had time to readjust the list. Surely realism and logic should come into play in professional journalism.

And please, whether posters on this board agree or disagree on certain points, never compare anything to do with our club with North. That's too far mate...too far.

Anyway back to the point of this thread....the new slogan is awesome.
