Membership 2018 - to infinity and beyond!


#966

I got a message from the membership department today telling me I’ve been a member for all but 5 years of my life. Add in the old man’s membership and we’re talking 150 years. Add in my late brother and two sister, we’d be more than 250 years.

We’ll forget the 2 Geelong sisters.

Splitters!


#967

yeah ■■■■ this banner board idea too.


#968

At least I’m getting value outta the cheap slabs on offer at Colonial Brewery when you show your EFC membership :crazy_face:


#969

71,918
Last year we hit 65k about mid May, so we’re still running over 7000 ahead.
I realize these numbers aren’t top of people’s minds these days. Just recording them for future reference.


#970

What is the deal?


#971

how much beer do you have to buy to make the membership economical?


#972

6…


#973

The amount of beer you have to drink to maintain sanity whilst watching the team clearly pays for the membership.


#974

Cartons of Colonial Brewery standard ranges for $50ea. A rather large saving if you’re in Melbourne as the larger retailers don’t stock them & if you order online, these beers are in the $70 a carton region.

How many do you need to go through to get value? At the current rate, I’ll end up saving myself a couple hundred at least! :crazy_face:


#975

That’s a pretty good deal since VB and Carlton’s have gone up to around $50 a slab mark now.

Plus it will help to numb the pain of watching our season slip away!


#976

Given I waited so long to get the ■■■■■■ thing, has an appropriate amount of time passed to now stick it in the microwave?

#977

Are you on the monthly plan? Cancel it


#978

Yes, … that’s what supporters do.


#979

Whatever it takes.
Sometimes change has to be forced


#980

Hey, at least it saved me $5 on Sandy entrance today…


#981

We never usually care too much about the cost of going to the Footy, but today in a weak moment Mrs Fox and I worked out that we see about 18 Bomber H&A games each year and when you add up all the costs, it gets to more than $5,000.

After yesterday, we are not sure it is worth the money to get such heart-ache.

Blokes like WOB drove all the way from Perth to watch two bad defeats. Koala and many others travel all around the Country to follow the team we all love.

We sat through 2016 watching guys battle every week against more talented opposition, and win a few along the way, and we saw them try very hard.

BJ looks broken, and he deserves better than this. And so do we.


#982

Tell me how else you plan to get those in important places who make decisions to take any notice? We couldn’t even get membership cards on time regardless of promises. To busy doing other things and too many distractions.

And this is a club, who crossed the line during the saga, the fix was on, what makes you think they actually give a dam.


#983

72,784.
Quite amazing thinking of the 866 people who have signed up in the last 12 days.
Friends and family of the VFL side?
Or maybe they heard about the cheap slabs deal.


#984

They signed up in Jan, membership department still processing it. Should have their cards by 2019


#985

When you give a kid a present and they smash it and ask for another one, what do you do?
Sorry, no more prezzies from me until they show they can be responsible with them.
