I think “What are my membership dollars going towards?” is a legitimate question for members to ask.
Most members want the answer to be “towards our next premiership” or “to build a football team which plays good football and wins finals matches”.
Based on recent performances (and some would say longer), some members on this forum are questioning whether their membership dollars are being spent as well as they could be.
Personally, the concept that some people pay for a membership and expect to feel enjoyment watching their team strive to win football matches in return is rational and understandable.
It’s really no different than buying tickets to see your favourite band in concert and expecting that they’ll put on a good show. You hope it’s one of the greatest of all time but so long as they’re not stinking it up onstage you feel happy.
