Yep he is getting pissed! Cannot wait till Richmond are back to drawing 6,000 attendance’s like they were in 1993! Even Fitzroy were drawing more people then Richmond back then! And now Fitzroy are gone :-(! Hope it does not happen to Richmond.
I have to pull you up there GP, what you're saying is true but they did have supporters who threw in for truck loads of manure.

You all know who your sugar daddy is. You have for a long long time.
You all know where and how the AFL gets the $$ to prop up half of the Vic clubs, as well as a cpl of expansion clubs.
You just dont like being reminded of it. We understand.
No really, its ok. No need to feel insecure.
We all contribute something.
ok maybe not North.

one thing no one has mentioned here is perchase intent. Given both Melbourne and Richmond, despite being poor for so long up until recently, have such high ratios of suppprt to membership, this suggests the fanbases are highly committed and more likely to financial support the club.

This is an important metric because when either team gets on a role you have a fanbase with high purchase intent that is more likely to engage with the brand, therefore enhancing sponsorship and broascast capacilities.

A lot of you are talking purely numbers. It goes way beyond that. I mean, Melbourne is 4th vic side after tigers dons and pies for average home attendance. hawks tassie games impact their numbers but we have two <10k games in NT.

biggest support base is nice when things are going well. when you're shit though things can get tough because the "supporters" aren't engaged. kudos to Richmond fans because even after decades of shit they still got along to games. i mean they had 50k members in 2012 despite not having played a final in a decade.

Big Footy is a fair representation of AFL fans. Who on here participated in the Morgan poll? How do they do it?
Eagles would have 800k supporters in Australia easily. 770k just in WA.

Oops. Morgan polls only ran this in the eastern states because we're all conspiring against WA and SA.
Where did you get that crap statement from? Was a simple question of who on here participated in it? They must of polled someone? Who did they poll?

My point is that they likely did not bother to survey anywhere near a legit sample, being based in Melbourne.
The last bit was, well smartass.

Sydney again top the supporter base ladder in 2018 with 1.2 million followers Australia wide.

Collingwood have reclaimed its place over Essendon as the most supportered Victorian club in Australia with 660,000 to Essendon 651,000.

Richmond the club who claims to have 100,000 members is the 5th biggest Victorian club with 487,000 supporters around Australia behind the pies 660,000, bombers 651,000, hawks 545,000 and blues 490,000

Melbourne are the smallest Victorian club with 198,000 fans around Australia
How come I never get these polls?
