I am a September pledged member, but I also hope the club gives priority to those who were members during our really lean run between 2015-2017 over people who just signed up this year because we are winning.
Ten years ago the post premiership bandwagoneers were leaving in droves, Five years ago couldn't find anyone (outside of this highly intelligent group) to talk footy to, and now have friends saying they've always loved footy and how much are memberships.

Love the $, and the atmosphere they bring but have ground a few on my teeth down when smiling inanely during these conversations.

Absolutely correct. What's even more frustrating is being grouped with those 'bandwagoners' when I've been here ever from the start of 2008, riding every victory & loss. Bigfooty is when I learned there were peope like me who enjoyed talking about the game.

I signed up in 2011 (the first year of my adult life) the same year all the Fev bandwagoners jumped off.

My sister and her kids, my mum and myself have been members since day dot of the Brisbane Lions down here in Melbourne. Unfortunately it does not record me as being a member since the inception of the Brisbane Lions though as at the demise of the Fitzroy Football Club the AFL then offered Fitzroy members the opportunity back then to purchase and become an AFL restricted member ( which i put Brisbane as my supporting club) which then allowed me to skip the waiting list, which i gladly jumped at but for some reason did not record me as a member at the start. Only when i cancelled my AFL membership and joined as a Brisbane Lion member through the club did it then start my run as a member.

when things like access to finals tickets is impacted by years of membership they should get it right. Doesn’t feel right that you didn’t get lions acknowledgement from the start.

What he's describing is pretty standard though, isn't it? AFL membership is not the same as club membership and doesn't get counted as such?

The afl membership meant you still got to go to other afl games right? while joining the lions meant only six games a year (at the time, and we all know it’s even less now). I wouldn’t want to just stop going to games cause my team moved away. hell, I go suns games.

If the afl membership got access to the lions games it wouldn’t be a stretch to skip the direct lions membership.

Given how tough the fans had it with their team moving away surely a bit of largess from the new identity is appropriate. It wouldn’t be many

Video games are a team aren't they?
Is anyone else having grief trying to pay for additional tickets from the ballot?

The Payment Option field is blanked out and I can't do anything with it, and that leaves the Pay Now button inactive. :mad::'(

I tried to call the club but apparently there is 48 hour turn-around on callbacks. :(:rolleyes:

Much bigger catchment. More focus on short and cheaper memberships. Not sure about the relative cost, but it could be less too.
Gotta factor in Canberra memberships too. Plenty of people I know were fans of other teams but purchased 3 game Giants memberships to go to games in Canberra.

We actually had more than 29500 before the whole rona hit so we may have had more members request refunds.
I was talking to someone at the club a little while back and he said that about 6-7k had asked for a refund.

I had a similar issue. Joined the club from inception as a full AFL member with Lions Club Support package and then a few years later the club said due to a problem with their database they couldn't confirm when I became a member so they would only count it from that later date. Fortunately I had kept my old AFL membership cards showing me as a club support member and the key ring issued to foundation members back in 1997 and after sending them copies and extensive toing and froing eventually I convinced them to accept that I was a foundation member. Took quite an effort though.

Bummer. I've been a Foundation Member of the Brisbane Lions since our inception in 97 and to be honest there are few, if any perks. The only perk that springs to mind was access to purchase a one off special jumper a number of years back.
