    Ffs. ALW grand final day and this happens. Can guarantee this will get more airplay than the match.

    1. Hope the ref is ok
    2. Hope the lowlife that did it ends up in prison

    Hahahahaha, i cannot WAIT for the first meeting of our new Fan Engagement Group with management where the useless entitled prat fans only suggestions are to give us cheaper beer and stop starting Hoffman.

    If any of these dopes in Row 22 were any level of smart they'd already be employed by the FFA and handsomely compensated for such stupid ideas, but now they want to give them away for free?


    Morons.


    I love Australian football.

    I love Australian football.
    I was part of this group when it kicked off back in the days of Middleby, along with Furns and GazFish (and others).
    We actually got few things worked through with the club - varying membership packs, kids on the field, 10% discount at food stands for members, voting on away kits, lobbying long and hard to have gold as our primary kit, reciprocal free entry for F3 derbies to make but a few things. Lawrie and Sam Millar were very supportive, open and action minded.
    The group was well spread too - older members, all level members, active, members with families, younger members too.

    It will be interesting to see how it all plays out and if it can actually make a change, how the leader reps from each club work together, who they are and whether the APL actually do something with it or if it's just a token gesture.

    Ultimately those who go in need to represent the group the have been chosen to (and have active means to engage and seek input). If they go in it just to push their own agenda it will fail

    I'm less concerned about that than I am about the fact I can't say that I don't use any of the offered social media channels.

    This membership renewal crap

    I am planning on opting out of them stinging me for cash in June when the season don't start for 4 months

    It is way to early in the off season for this and with our dodgy ownership situation this to me smells like the practice of clubs hitting up their junior players for next year to pay their seniors for this year BS

    Something ain't right about the cash grab

    Seems pretty common practice now I’m multiple areas.

    In the music festival world, splendour/falls ticket sales for the next gig, seem to be used to acquire acts for the following festival. This year splendour hasn’t sold out like previously, and they essentially don’t have the funds to book in acts for Falls over the new year so they’ve cancelled it.

    The whole thing cries unsustainable.

    This is about balancing the books at the end of the financial year. A cash influx of, say, $1.5 million (5000 members with average of $300 membership cost) goes a long way to sandbagging the balance sheet and reducing the losses for potential sale.

    Ive already renewed, well done Middleby and co for getting on it straight away while the a-league finals hype is red hot.

    To be honest am glad my seats were still available, always nervy that by the time i renew the place is sold out.

    As always ive purchased the 3 seats each side of plague jnr and I so no jets fans sit too close to us.

    Will start prepping for me and jeterpools pre-season podcast.

    Good day.

    Saw it on the Herald today. Amazing hey?

    Closed for 2 months for an event that attracts 16000 (potentially)

    But they also say they can returf it and have it ready to play in 2 days. Better than Jesus.
