What is going to be our benchmark this time around? 45k-ish?
Given everyone just wanted to crack 40, I reckon 43k will be about it.

There's a certain point where we are genuinely going to struggle getting members. We aren't there yet, but I think there's an absolute cap on our members at around the 55k mark.

That's rather depressing to say the least. Although to be fair not surprised given our recent history.

I certainly feel there's been a fair bit of growth recently but I fear we may lose some new supporters if we don't sustain some sort of success, a premiership would be handy is an understatement.

Women’s team will encourage a few more members. A big part of the AFL’s efforts in this area. Regional loyalties being pretty much locked up in Melbourne, the idea of broadening the scope of who is interested in buying a membership within the existing areas has merit. I can see the possibility of a few girls asking for a membership for Christmas this year, when previously it was just their little rat-taily brothers that wanted one.

Also i remember "Time to let your demon out" and thinking it was so hardcore at the time.

The last two years have been pretty good
