Need a quick rant, feel free to flame me or purge this topic.
So today, like many of you, I got an email to tell me to go and buy everything at the Bomber shop. I know marketing have a job to do, but fk me I kinda feel they have no right to ask anything of us so soon after those last couple of efforts. But hey, like some of the players, gotta chase those Benjamins. I’m only 30 but even I can remember when footy was about more than bank balances.
On top of that is the weak leadership again with Xavier apologising to the players and the club for being perceived as going over the top, and then Hepp’s press conference where he basically laughed it all off as a “one off” occasion and mentioned some great form in the VFL…can anyone tell me what that form was or who might have shown it because I feel he may not have been watching the same game.
End rant. I know I should leave it to some of you more eloquent wordsmiths, but just needed to get that off my chest.
I certainly don’t understand marketing in this regard. Is it like playing the long game?: remind you that the Bomber Shop exists while your emotions are high about the club… even though there’s very little chance that you’d buy something right now.
