To a degree, but if we didnt have buddy who do we have insteadYou don’t think he’s been a factor in our membership numbers being what they are?
I think its a combination of both. They initially come to see Buddy and what all the hoo ha is about and then fall in love with the game. I don't believe a lot of our current fans/members would have bothered in the first place without the big draw card.To a degree, but if we didnt have buddy who do we have instead
maybe we have a better balanced team?
i think we have a larger portion of fans than just fans who want to see a big name than we think, but buddy would have been a positive impact on the numbers
A few more smilesSo just got an email from the parents of a student that I taught the last 3 years. Student and her father are die hard swans and after a few years of gentle persuasion finally convinced mum that getting her daughter and hubby a membership for their birthdays last year was a good idea. While they have enjoyed the footy this year despite the lack of success, student signed up for the junior clinic this morning. Email has a photo of student with Isaac who she absolutely adores. The look on her face is just priceless. Happy as a pig in s**t. Brings back memories of the pure joy I got as a kid getting to say hi to the players. Much as we get frustrated with the club sometimes, it is a good reminder just to enjoy the sport for what it is. A bit of enjoyment away from day to day life.
