and further north into lalor, mill park etc - lance and kouta land............Our Northern Blues VFL side is a clue to the area where we should target.
Our historical heartland of support, Carlton, Brunswick, Coburg - where have those second and third generation families gone.
If we had our old zone and say the system was we get to pick the best kid from the zone each year (bendigo pioneers) I think we would currently have on our list (assuming we picked well)Probably a few missed opportunities in the past with the Bendigo, WA and SA connections all strong and a little ignored. We need to target and rebuild the markets again.
Yeah we were 'lucky' with the old zone, but times and rules change. We are more a victim of ourselves than anything else though. Given a choice I'd take the Cannons or Stingrays before any of the other zones.If we had our old zone and say the system was we get to pick the best kid from the zone each year (bendigo pioneers) I think we would currently have on our list (assuming we picked well)
and one of Jake Stringer or Ollie Wines
Zones can make a huge difference.
The North region has the biggest population growth projection over the next 10 to 30 years. 500k to 700k projection.Exactly- we should be aiming to create a Northern Melbourne Metropolitan Wedge.
Also lots of students in brunswick/carlton. Especially international students who arent likely to buy memberships.The North region has the biggest population growth projection over the next 10 to 30 years. 500k to 700k projection.
You are 100% spot on. This region should be targeted in a big way.
We also have a large nation wide television supporter base. These supporters need to be targeted also.
As for the Traditional Carlton/Brunswick suburbs, these have become trendy apartment suburbs with a mixed origin supporter crowd
AFAIK she doesn't have a Twitter account.Has Caro or anyone else come out in the media and put up their hand to say they stuffed up?
How they are not held to be accountable is beyond me.
The moment this news broke I went looking for Wilson’s twitter ... I wanted blood!! Btw she no longer uses it , very disappointed.

MembershipThe Tigers membership started moving upwards in 2009 the year brendan Gale was appointed CEO . Gale appointed Liddle in 2010. I guess the point is , it is hard to separate the incredible growth in richmond membership from either the Gale or Liddle tenure. Its a bit like trying to separate Clarkson and his assistants from the hawthorn premierships. The Jury is out on Liddle until he starts performing on his own

Ground floor perfumery,^^^
Agree with this. Given we had 50k members last year on the back of another season without finals isn't such a terrible thing. Hopefully Liddle can take us to the next level.
Let's not fool ourselves. Negative growth since 2013.
We did the same thing but offered a rebate. Tie that to a membership instead and we would get back the latent support. Opportunity was missed.About 4 years ago we where shopping around for a new energy company, I can’t remember which one ...but they where offering a Richmond membership (prob just a basic one) if you switched, interesting initiative, i suppose the energy company subsidises the membership ...
