Title: RFC Official - We're on board!
Post by: RFC_Official on January 04, 2011, 09:37:41 PM
Alright I've had a few people ask me to join here, even had an email saying they would reconsider their membership if I didnt...and we don't want that, so here we are.

My initial problem to begin with was that the club has so many forums, I cant be answering everyone's questions all the time but I am here and will be able to get to any posts here every few days, or as soon as I humanly can.

So, fire away

My only groundrules: No footy stuff, I'm not Dimma so I can't tell you why X isn't playing or why Z is...but I can answer other things. Go for it, happy to be here!

Great to see and as someone who has been on pretty much every Tiger forum this is clearly the best forum which has the highest quality posting and easily the best and most constructive admin and moderators.
You really should've come here first but I'm sure everyone on OER will allow you 1 mistake!

Yep.  At the least, what timeframe (and not the catch-all "sometime in the New Year") can we expect the announcement.

And to reiterate what some others have posted - this forum really does stand out from most for it's varied, robust and mature discussion.  Thanks for joining.

I really don't get the chicken little reactions to the sponsorship issue, today is the first working day back for the new year, we've just had the xmas break, no company wanting exposure from a sponsorship announcement is going to make it right now when so many people are away on holidays.
It will be announced when it's ready to be announced and expecting RFCO to let the cat out of the bag on this forum is just pure stupidity

A question from me -

What is the best way to get my young fellow a response letter/signed photo etc from a player. Writing via the mail hasn't worked this year and my son became a little dispondent - is it better to write vai email?

Welcome aboard OER RFCO  :)

Stealing 10 Flags' thunder here but what does the Club think of his idea to encourage lapsed members to return to the fold?


http://oneeyed-richmond.com/forum/index.php?topic=12305.0

One thing the club should look at IMHO is what to do with members who allow there memberships to lapse but who come back into the fold. For example when you purchase a membership now it says for example that you have been a consecutive member for say 5 years but what happens if you have been a member over your life for say 12 years or 15 years. I understand these things are difficult but I think if the club has the computer records they should offer members who have held members over a number of years but for one reason or another became lapsed over a  year or two to buy out the lapsed period.

This would allow those members to accrue better membership benefits but also provide an opportunity for the club to make some money. I think a one-off fee of say $200 or maybe $50 a year for every lapsed year of membership would be fair.

Members would go onto a better level of membership and the club would make some extra money.

In order to give it more cred maybe revenues made from this could go debt reduction.

I just put up some basic ideas, hopefully someone from the club takes all these things into account and then we see some sort of action.

Whether its a 10 year period or say 6 years maximum then thats for the club to decide. If you go with say 6 years maximum then they should just charge the $79 a year 3 game membership for every year required-that would then take the 6 year charge to $474 all up to buyout 6 years and thats not a bad amount at all.

1 year lapse- $79
2 year lapse- $158
3 year lapse- $237
4 year lapse- $316
5 year lapse- $395
6 year lapse- $474

Financially it really works for the club and supporters who need say 3years+ get a real benefit but of course they pay for the priviledge.  :thumbsup

Not asking for "cat out of bag" statements Infamy.  Just looking for a "still in negotiation so a number of weeks away" or a "already committed, waiting for the best time" or a " nearly over the line, expect it in a few weeks", something like that.  You should know me well enough to know that Chicken Little is not my go, but some information good or bad is much easier to swallow and much more appreciated than no information at all.

The players about the place obviously, it's just a matter of finding the time for them to sign something else. When you say signed photo, are you sending in the photo and askign for it to be signed? Or are you wanting both, just for clarity's sake.

Question - Why was the club so adamant on keeping the name Punt Road oval when selling the naming rights to ME Bank? Giving them the rights to the whole complex would have brought in more $$$ no doubt.

Thats a real good question TM. Our supporters are too emotional about the name of the oval. The club should have sold the name of completely and taken the money. :gotigers

Thanks for the reply. I'm more referring to some type of response from the player or club just acknowleding that they appreciate the latter from the child. Doesn't always have to come directly from the player, as I understand they have a very taxing schedule, but some sort of return item/letter etc goes a long way to creating lifelong supporters from those young kids who have made the effort to write to their heroes.

Once again thanks for taking the time to reply. I think everyone on here really appreciates the effort you are making!  :thumbsup

More memberships equates to better resources around the club for them to succeed. You jump on board, that helps the bottom line. If everyone decided not to join until we got better, chances are we probably won't be around in four years.
You either want to buy one or you don't - your choice!

Got mine delivered to sunny  :o Brisbane yesterday 632 (including #6 grandson's Tiger Cub pack) although mine is a normal 11 gamer, not the interstate one.  Mine is auto-renewed via the roll over plan so that would have been November also.
Title: Re: We're on board!
Post by: Smokey on January 06, 2011, 09:37:24 AM
Question for you RFCO:

Why can't I use my 11 game membership to attend our home games in Queensland (Carrara in the past, Cairns this year, Darwin for NT members)?  Seems that this membership is biased towards Melbourne-based members by allowing them to convert one of our interstate home games to a local one, yet when we play a home game interstate, members that reside in that state are not given the option to use their memberships unless they have the lesser value Country/Interstate pack.  Strong disincentive to get us interstate members to buy higher value memberships I would think.
Title: Re: We're on board!
Post by: Penelope on January 06, 2011, 11:49:20 AM
This is something I was wondering about too smokey. I thought that being a home game any member could get in rather have having to use one of my two interstate game nominations.

I rang the club and the issue is that although we are the home team in these games, from a ticketing point of the view they are not treated as home games. This is because members get access to an away melbourne game to replace each interstate game, ie an 11 game membership still gets you access to 11 games in melbourne, 9 home and two away.

Gee i hope round 2 against the saints is one of the replacement games so the social club will be open.

Been a bugbear of mine for a few years now Al.  I don't see how it is fair that interstate-domiciled members get disadvantaged because they choose an elevated level of membership!  Flies in the face of trying to increase the level (extra revenue for the club) and satisfaction of membership for mine.

Yep, can't get onside with this one 10 Flags (or is it Ramps  ??? ).  Good move by the club and as MM said, the improvement in communications over the past 12 months has been a breath of fresh air.  Improvement across all facets of the club is what we have been promised and so far is what has been delivered.  Can't complain about that.

RFCO should never have been allowed to post on any forum in an official capacity by the club IMHO. Its gonna get outta hand at some point on some of the forums or some people will get cut when RFCO doesnt agree with there point of view. Its a bad recipe and one that wont assist the club in the end.

Disagree entirely.
For one person that gets cut, hundreds will be satisfied.
The communication improvement from the club this year has been positively brilliant!

Yep, can't get onside with this one 10 Flags (or is it Ramps  ??? ).  Good move by the club and as MM said, the improvement in communications over the past 12 months has been a breath of fresh air.  Improvement across all facets of the club is what we have been promised and so far is what has been delivered.  Can't complain about that.


10 Flags is my new tag Smoke. I hope you guys are right, but if we start to lose afew games, Itll be interesting to see how RFCO will handle the feral element.

 I think he's already been through a fast learning curve on Big Footy ramps ... particularly after Collins was traded.

There is obviously a large number of questions/issues he simply cant address and such things get ignored, but there will always be a small element of dick heads that don't understand this. Welcome to the internet   ;D :cheers

RFC Official, which sites are you on and how do u rank them from best to worst. I think this is very important because if someone contacted the club and wanted a site to join then it would be best if the club could steer them in the right direction!

Im on BigFooty, Punt Road End, Here and soon to be yellow and black.

The only reason why I joined the other two first was due to numbers (they had a larger userbase as far as I could tell) and due to a lack of time, but people wanted me here so I've joined

It is a great initiative and hopefully Tiger supporters understand that this communication won't answer all questions but at least gives us ongoing access into the club.

It is so much better and more credible that some posters on forums who claim "inside knowledge" in peddling some unsubstantiated smut about the club.

The club should stay objective about what Tiger forums to post, in the end all supporters are valuable to the club - particularly paid members - and there is no gain in favouring 1 forum over another (even if this is the best one).

RFCO, i know that the club is talking up Nathan Foley, but the rumors continue to abound about his actual state of fitness and his long term future at the RFC.

It's probably unfair to put this on you, but is there anything other than the usual club gloss that we can hang our hopes on with Nathan?

A couple of recent training reports have said that Nathan has been training like a man possessed.

For mine the standouts at training today were:
Foley - trained the whole session and not once did I see him pull up or limp. Looked as sharp as ever and his ball handling in the conditions was pretty well spot on.

RCO, a few years ago Robert Murphy of the Doggies displayed a tattoo on his arm that said, 'No War!'

I think the AFL and the Doggies told him that he wasn't allowed to do this.

The other day Dan jackson tweeted or something about his opinions on the Australian flag.

Are these incidents the same??  Will Dan be pulled into line?

People will never be happy. The club has been super with what it has supplied online. Dima's email weekly, RFC Official online, the club youtube etc etc etc. Things that we didnt have in the past.

I have never seen RFC Official come online on a saturday or sunday spruiking a win. So why should he come on for a loss.


The on-field disgrace and debacle and the way the FTF fund has been handled is different to a lot of the cheap potshots being thrown around. I think FNM is correct, misplaced anger. Target the players first and worry about online representatives about 10th.

Anything he say's will only have the poo picked out of it so why would he bother?

Personally I would rather see the guy's show up this week and just play with heart, play with intent and just play with some spirit! Seeing the Tigers flog the Bombers will heal all wounds (But if we get flogged again you have my permission the burn the place down ;D ;D)

Gutter thread

Its sunday. Its the weekend, when does he post on the weekend.

He will be on here monday or tuesday.

Supporters whinge and bitch and carry on wanting more interaction from the club. When this occurs people crack the poos about it anyway.

People will never be happy. The club has been super with what it has supplied online. Dima's email weekly, RFC Official online, the club youtube etc etc etc. Things that we didnt have in the past.

I have never seen RFC Official come online on a saturday or sunday spruiking a win. So why should he come on for a loss.
The on-field disgrace and debacle and the way the FTF fund has been handled is different to a lot of the cheap potshots being thrown around. I think FNM is correct, misplaced anger. Target the players first and worry about online representatives about 10th.

Ease up Damo!

I think HRT is taking the pee a bit here mate! Nothing too serious i am sure!

so true mate.

What is he going to say whats Dimma going to say on the email. Its all rubbish. We as supporters or the smart ones at least dont need club emails, phone calls and carry on like that.

We have been spoon fed rubbish for 30 years for me personally the only thing i care about is on field success, the rest is spin aka leather face

If you want RFCO to post more here and answer questions then the simple thing to do is ask him a question in the dedicated thread - "We're on Board" - that has been stickied.

I asked you this on twitter but if you could answer it here that would be great

Why the difference in the 2 numbers?

And BTW I know you are going to say it's because of the "access & non access members" numbers but could you tell us which categories make up "non access"

Thnx

Yep it's pretty much standard protocol on most forums these days. As posting on forums is mostly anonymous it's easy for someone with a grudge to use one site to bag and make up crap about another site and the people who run and/or use it. With issues in papers or affecting another club the individuals involved are publicly known and the issues are public knowledge to discuss (unless there's a court suppression order which prevents a person's identity being revealed).

Here is one from outside the square for you RFCO.

Each year the club release a list of all of the players in the final year of their contract, ie able to be delisted.

Run an sms line where members can send a text voting to delist a player and resign a player and the decision stands at the conclusion.


Could be a nice earner with a premium sms line and a way to involve the fans who let's face it couldn't do a worse job than Craig Cameron.

Probably the fact that we had a lot of new sponsors this year so it was important for them to get on the background, and we just havent changed it since we locked in our final list of sponsors. It has been discussed as to bringing the logo back next year.

Non access is those without access to the games, essentially a non-ticketed membership.
7000 is a large gap when you see clubs like Hawthorn have all but a couple of hundred of their memberships counted in the official AFL tally.

Is the club looking at ways to include "access" to non-access memberships so they count in the official AFL figures? Say for example is it possible to add one-game access to overseas/interstate-based memberships - virtually all will never use the one-game access due to the tyranny of distance so the cost should be close to the current non-access membership yet they would count on the technicality of having one-game access.

Pish posh, I hate people who get defended on the basis of "doing their job" which implies that doing the bare minimum is enough.

Why not hold him accountable for doing his job properly, he doesn't involve himself enough on the forum - I would like him to get back to us quicker when answering questions on the sticky on this forum.

He is on the forum and should be open to feedback - or don't do it.

What basis do you judge him not doing his job properly?  Do you know what his job statement is, do you know what direction or charter he has been given by his employer?  Do you know what other tasks he has to perform in his day's work?  Here is his introductory post to this forum:

"Alright I've had a few people ask me to join here, even had an email saying they would reconsider their membership if I didnt...and we don't want that, so here we are.

My initial problem to begin with was that the club has so many forums, I cant be answering everyone's questions all the time but I am here and will be able to get to any posts here every few days, or as soon as I humanly can.

So, fire away

My only groundrules: No footy stuff, I'm not Dimma so I can't tell you why X isn't playing or why Z is...but I can answer other things. Go for it, happy to be here!"


Seems to me he is meeting his commitment to the forum ok.  Just because he doesn't answer every question put to him on every forum doesn't mean jack-pooe when it comes to assessing him "doing his job properly".  Feedback (even that spoken in jest) is one thing; uninformed ranting is another entirely.

Why not hold him accountable for doing his job properly, he doesn't involve himself enough on the forum - I would like him to get back to us quicker when answering questions on the sticky on this forum.

He is on the forum and should be open to feedback - or don't do it.

To his credit, he did respond but I hope he gets more involved. Leave it there.


What basis do you judge him not doing his job properly?  Do you know what his job statement is, do you know what direction or charter he has been given by his employer?  Do you know what other tasks he has to perform in his day's work?  Here is his introductory post to this forum:

"Alright I've had a few people ask me to join here, even had an email saying they would reconsider their membership if I didnt...and we don't want that, so here we are.

My initial problem to begin with was that the club has so many forums, I cant be answering everyone's questions all the time but I am here and will be able to get to any posts here every few days, or as soon as I humanly can.

So, fire away

My only groundrules: No footy stuff, I'm not Dimma so I can't tell you why X isn't playing or why Z is...but I can answer other things. Go for it, happy to be here!"


Seems to me he is meeting his commitment to the forum ok.  Just because he doesn't answer every question put to him on every forum doesn't mean jack-pooe when it comes to assessing him "doing his job properly".  Feedback (even that spoken in jest) is one thing; uninformed ranting is another entirely.

would agree with all of this.

as long as the replies are truthful and not spin i think we should refrain from the abuse

I don't get people bagging RFCO when previously we (fans on forums) got basically stuff all direct interaction with the communications area of the club. It's a tough gig too currently when we've been crap on-field the past two months.

aaahh i think you mean 30 years OT

Nonetheless i agree 100%

I think its good having direct contact with someone from the club instead of dealing with a young kid picking up the phone when you call the club who probably supports another team.

I think you are the one ranting - on me! You might think he is doing his job well, good luck to you!
 I don't when compared to what I see on another forum. I happen to think this forum is de- prioritized compared to another. Rather than ranting and abusing other posters why don't you do your homework? Oh that's right, your sanctimonious attitude to other posters prevents you from thinking that you are ever wrong.

A bit touchy about it aren't you?  Don't flatter yourself that I was ranting on you, couldn't be further from the truth actually, my "uninformed ranting" comment was about the number and type of posts that were having a crack at RFCO - maybe I could have worded that a bit better.  Not sure that I ever abused you either but there you go, perceptions are for everyone.  My sanctimonious attitude?  Happy to discuss the topics with anyone and more than happy to be shown where I get it wrong (have often apologised or conceded points on here).  Oh, and thanks for actually answering my questions, tells me why you have your point of view and even though I disagree I can understand why you might think that.

As we've said numerous times we don't care what happens at other sites/forums so leave discussion about them off OER please.

If you want RFCO to post more here and answer questions then the simple thing to do is ask him a question in the dedicated thread - "We're on Board" - that has been stickied.

http://oneeyed-richmond.com/forum/index.php?topic=12342.0

This is by far the easiest way to get a hold of me. I hadnt had a post in my thread between April 12 and August 04, so there was quite a while bewteen drinks there...I can't be trawling through every single thread on forums searching for my name, make it easy for me  :) Will get a much quicker response there

Mr RFC_O,

there's been some discussion about our final membership numbers

Club says 47k members, official ALF number is 40k

I asked you this on twitter but if you could answer it here that would be great

Why the difference in the 2 numbers?

And BTW I know you are going to say it's because of the "access & non access members" numbers but could you tell us which categories make up "non access"

Thnx

Non access is those without access to the games, essentially a non-ticketed membership.
7000 is a large gap when you see clubs like Hawthorn have all but a couple of hundred of their memberships counted in the official AFL tally.

Is the club looking at ways to include "access" to non-access memberships so they count in the official AFL figures? Say for example is it possible to add one-game access to overseas/interstate-based memberships - virtually all will never use the one-game access due to the tyranny of distance so the cost should be close to the current non-access membership yet they would count on the technicality of having one-game access.

Im sure membership are looking at every which way to increase ticketed memberships, I just havent discussed the specifics with them. While yes it would be great to be higher on the official AFL figures, we're pretty happy with a record breaking membership year, fans have done us proud.

Do we?

I would think not really - we know that we have 11 home games in total of which 2 will interstate meaning and we will get 2 away games in Melb as compensation

The only question is how many interstate away games will we have - my guess same as 2011

And if the scenario listed above isn't the what we get then I reckon then the club wil have a lot to answer for (again) re the selling of the home games interstate

While I don't speak for them, no, I don't think the football department listens to fans opinions on players. They have a system they grade every single player in the league on and so I reckon they'd stick to that.

There was an initiative a few years back where you could give money to the club and you got a paver with your name on it which was laid at Punt Road. When the development occurred they were put into storage with the view that they would be relaid once the development was complete. At least that was the theory.

Thanks's Oiafi, that's what I am talking about

It was back in 2005 or 2006 when the Club had a major drive for raising funds for the Jack Dyer Foundation for the re-development, this was before we got all the govt funding.

People paid money for pavers that were out the front of the old social club. When the old social club was pulled down the pavers were taken up and put into storage. Everyone with pavers got a letter from Benny Gale saying that once the re-development was finished the pavers would be re-laid most likely near the Jack Dyer statue.

Considering the amounts some people paid (and yes I include myself here because it was a 4 figure amount donated) I was just wondering what was going on with the pavers, when were they going to be re-laid

I can answer this one because I got a letter from the Club (sigend by Benny Gale) last week about this

Wont be until late 2012  :-\

The letter said pavers will be re-laid after the configuration the ground is complete which is planned for sometime late next year. They will be put in front of the Jack Dyer Stand.

Also mentioned some of the pavers have actually been damaged (read broken) and these will be replaced by the club when they are re-laid.

Pleased to have got the letter but disappointed that (1) some pavers have been broken and (2) it's going to be another 12 months before they are on display again

RFCO, I have heard that lapsed RFC members have been sent letters offering to count their previous years of membership in the members rewards program.

Is that correct?

If so, will the same offer be extended to current members who may have missed a season before the rewards program was introduced and therefore missed out on having previous years counted?

One of my pet hates is the way Pay TV throws everything at punters to get them to sign up, but none of the same rewards to loyal customers.

It seems to me like the RFC is treading a similar path here.

Same here - been with them since they started but want to charge me $100 or something to upgrade to HD but I know someone who's just signed up & have got it (HD) thrown in for free because they've signed up for 2 years  >:( Even threatening to cancelling my subscription has made no difference  :banghead

Fair question I reckon TBR

And TBH I am not sure it's the right thing to do

IIRC in one of the member's survey's (might have been 2009 or 2010) this issue was raised and the results showed that existing members didn't believe it was fair and the club decided not to do it.

So Mr RFC_O does this mean the Club's changed it stance on this  :huh

I just checked my inbox after the weekend and found someone had kindly sent an email about the pavers along the same lines as posted by others here.

Just regarding your query regarding the pavers, I received a letter last week from Brendon Gale stating that some of the pavers had been damaged when they were taken up and put into storage.  The club will pay to have any repairs to the pavers that were damaged and the all of the pavers will be put down once the ground etc has been reconfigured which it stated in the letter would be finished sometime next year.

So, all current Richmond members have the opportunity to have previous years of membership recognised.  Any years wanted to be added post 1995, members just need to call the membership team on 1300 742 466 and they will do it for you quick and easily over the phone as all records are up to date and correct on the database. 

Pre 1995, the Club gave all members the opportunity to have their correct years credited to their account back in 1995.  The Club does acknowledge though, that there are certain members who don’t have their years recognised, but have proof of their membership.  So if years prior to 1995 wanted to be credited, members will need to provide some evidence of their membership, via a membership card, proof of purchase or a statutory declaration.  If you would like to further discuss, please feel free to contact the membership team during office hours.

RFCO, I have heard that lapsed RFC members have been sent letters offering to count their previous years of membership in the members rewards program.

Is that correct?

If so, will the same offer be extended to current members who may have missed a season before the rewards program was introduced and therefore missed out on having previous years counted?

Its good to see our marketing and membership departments hard at work offering up new ideas and scouring OER for new ideas. Adds to the academy idea that the club rooted lets hope this one doesnt go the same way  :lol

Flags can you explain this comment about an "academy idea".
I presume you're talking about a development academy but can't remember seeing anything about Richmond doing this.
Reading about Chris Bond at Freo, one of his tasks was to set up a development academy.
I also note that St Kilda has now come out and said they are setting up a development academy as well.
It is interesting that some clubs are going in that direction while clubs like Collingwood are using development line coaches within the coaching panel.
To me it seems like an interesting contrast and would be interested in Richmonds approach.
Of course any plan for development must wait until we have all coaches on board but would have thought the type of model dictates the personnel to a large degree.

IIRC in one of the member's survey's (might have been 2009 or 2010) this issue was raised and the results showed that existing members didn't believe it was fair and the club decided not to do it.

So Mr RFC_O does this mean the Club's changed it stance on this  :huh
That's what I thought too WP and it seems the Club has changed it stance.

I believe that vote you're referring to was 85% ok-d it and 15% didn't and membership decided at the time not to go ahead with it.

This forum came up with the academy idea afew years ago and low and behold abit later the club announced an academy at Richmond with players doing classes lol etc. Dont think its still going. We also came up with the membership idea of people being able to get back their lost years of membership. Anyway, its good the club is taking ideas from the supporters and in particular OER Forum. We are clearly the cream of the crop when it comes to the big ideas  :lol

Same here - been with them since they started but want to charge me $100 or something to upgrade to HD but I know someone who's just signed up & have got it (HD) thrown in for free because they've signed up for 2 years  >:( Even threatening to cancelling my subscription has made no difference  :banghead

Me too, WP and I pay for it at my parents house as well which takes me to $200 a month.

I am with Austar up here but I have had some success in ringing them and telling them I will cut it if they don't give me the same offers I see in the ads.

Have actually had some good wins out of it, such as free features as long as it is connected at the address, and bill discounts.

They have a special department who deal with cancellations, they are the ones to talk to.

Interesting turn of events.  I have argued in favour of this for a number of years, based on my own experience and belief that just because circumstances may have prevented someone from joining one year out of many, it shouldn't cause their "Recognition" to be reset to zero.  It was something I included in every member survey I ever completed.  I'm like WP in thinking that the most recent vote a year or 2 back went in favour of the "No's" but maybe that's the perception I got when they rejected the proposal.  Anyway, like TBR, I will be contacting the club and getting my previous years recognized.  Well done RFC!

Mr RFC_O

I have a membership problem (actually this is probably a vent more than anything  ;D)

I buy my nephew & niece memberships every year. They live in Qld so it's been easy - Cotchy's Cubs & Coaches Crew it's been for them

Now my nephew is about to turn 18 there doesn't seem to be any options for someone who cannot get to any games  :'( :'(

Now I know you are going to say "Tiger Insider" is the way to go.

But the bottom line is that option is of no benefit to him. As he isn't going to get to any games in Melb and he will get to the game at the Gabba in August only. Based on the info available he will only receive the standard members benefits (stickers, lanyard etc) which isn't much

Coupled with that despite having been had Cub memberships since he was 7 - he isn't in the rewards & recognition program because he never had a "match day membership" so he gets no cap, scarf etc until under the R&R program until he has held a "Tiger Insider" membership for 3 or so years.

So I ask what do I do? There doesn't seem to a be a membership category that will be of any benefit to him.... 

Club should seriously look at bringing back the old "On the Bench" memberships that thay had up until a few season back - it catered for people that simply couldn't get to games

Oh well  :-\ :-\

WP, the interstate membership is at a reduced rate and allows entrance to 5 home games, including any interstate games.

the other option is to wait until the 3 game memberships are released.

Again interstate m'ship is of no benefit al - he can only get to one game, the one at the Gabba in August. So what use is 5 games?

The 3 game membership has already been released it's the Tiger Insider Membership

As I said currently either membership is of no benefit to the kid at all.

Whilst I can't say exactly what was discussed, the footy department at the moment are allowing other departments to sit in on their meetings while also introducing the staff member to the team.

Yesterday I was up and I gave a quick 45 second spiel about myself to Dan Connors who introduced me to the 40+ players, coaching staff and football department staff.

I then sat in on the offensive review of Friday night's matches and it was really interesting to see how they do things and what they see as important, also as a fan it was nice to see things being discussed that on the night you think "why did they do that!"

Really good of the football department to do that for everyone, I really think we have one of the more accessible footy department's out there.

Well looks like Mr RFC Official gets out of answering another one  ;D

From the RFC Site:

Dreamtime match-day info
richmondfc.com.au 11:59 AM Thu 17 May, 2012

Dreamtime game fully ticketed

The MCC has this morning advised that Saturday night’s Dreamtime clash with Essendon is now a fully ticketed game. 

This means that no general admission memberships will provide access to the game.  All members can still purchase a reserved seat through Ticketek, by visiting this link

The Club highly recommends that members wishing to attend the game should purchase tickets immediately.  16-game members can use the bar code on the back of their membership card to purchase a reserved seat, and have the general admission component of the ticket price removed. 

Full article & other details for Saturday night's game  see:

I don't get people bagging RFCO when previously we (fans on forums) got basically stuff all direct interaction with the communications area of the club. It's a tough gig too currently when we've been crap on-field the past two months.

As if he's not gonna cop a bagging!!!! ;D

He's more a spy than an official,mediating in a manipulative way in an attempt to control the humorously,negative slant we throw onto things.

Otherwise,what has he done for us lately? :wallywink

Something we're working on, slow developments internally slowing it down.

One of the biggest issues is having facilities for people should we declare them to be open sessions, when we're not hosting its hard to cater for toilets, car parking, etc.

We had ~2000 online and about 290 questions. As soon as they started coming in I went through them with Brendon and asked him which ones he wanted to answer. We got through about 15 questions, unfortunately because of the 15 minute delay at the beginning we couldnt get through as many as we wanted, Brendon had to go at 6o'clock. We'd set aside an hour and got through about 45mins.

Well they were picked out of the 250 questions that came in, if you're suggesting we knew what questions were coming in or planted them that wasn't the case. Brendon saw one that he wanted to answer, pointed to it on the screen and I pressed "approve".  Standard process we do every chat.

Here are some questions i would like answered

Why is Daniel Jackson still in the leadership group?

Why were Graham, Mcguane, Jackson signed to long term deals in the past and even as early as this year

A committment was made with Port to play in Darwin and was scrapped, what is stopping you from doing the same with Cairns?

Do you still believe the club is on track for your 3075 prediction, or is it another ploy to keep us members contributing to the club and FTF.

so you think it would be better to dig it up post season, so that the ground is not available pre season, and you trying to get your grass to grow late summer early autumn, possibly giving you a patchy quagmire for much of next year, if there are early winter rains.

The club onsold the darwin game to melbourne, so the overall commitment to the game was kept, just a different participant.

Finding someone else to take over the commitment for cairns could very well be a stumbling block, particulrly as they have probably budgeted for the money and would need to on sell it as well, not just give it away.

Do you think that has anything to do with the loss in Cairns - please  :banghead

Seriously jack when should it have been done?

During pre-season when the number of available venues drops dramatically so the costs to use said venues increases? Continuing our tradition of being "nomads" because the club for reasons they aren't willing to explain refuse to use Craigiebrun (which is the dimensions of OUR HOME ground the MCG - but that's a story for another day)

Just not bother with it and leave it as it is; a sub standard venue in relation to ground size

Funny how people want a stand alone VFL ASAP and want those games played at Punt Road but aren't willing to get the thing up to scratch to allow it to happen

Yeah at a cost. Do you think they head of to these places and not have to pay? Unless of course if they go out to Craigieburn; which wouldn't cost them a cent but which they wont do but as I said that's a question/story for another day. Actually maybe it's a question for Mr RFC_O  :laugh:

Bottom line is there isn't/wasn't going to be a good time to do it

Personally would rather have it ready for pre-season 2013, which is going to be a make or break year for the RFC because folks like me who weren't expecting finals this year but expect nothing less than finals in 2013

Stig,

Why doesn't the club use/utilise Cragieburn more for training now that Punt Road is being re-configured and more importantly is the same size as our HOME ground the MCG?

Considering all the fanfare when it was announced that it was being built with only Govt monies for use by the RFC without the Club having to contribute a single cent instead contributing some goodwill I find it staggering we aren't using it more.

It seems the Club have washed there hands of it - why?

if you wait another 8 weeks, then you finish the project 8 weeks later, at least, which means the ground is not ready for pre season.

is that what you want? to be able to whinge about that?

also, as i alluded to previously, the timing for planting/laying grass is critical. spring is the growing season, you want your grass established before the heat of summer sets in, not trying to establish during that heat.

it wouldn't matter what they did here, you would complain.

Yes I know that

But why doesn't the club just use it (and I don't think the surface had anything to do with the Foley inj BTW) for all on field training between now and when Punt Road is ready?

Rather than chopping and changing venues 3 times a week? Surely continunity and a routine would be a good way to go?

Again and it's just a personal view  ;) I don't think the Club uses Craigieburn to its advantage on a number of levels TBBH

I can tell you Jack, that what you are spruiking as possible is only partially possible at a very high cost (to our club in this case).  What is real and cost-effective is the approach the club have taken so be careful where you throw around the word "garbage" - some of us are heavily invested in this very area and might know just a tad about what is possible too.  Not for the first time you appear to be demanding a resolution that satisfies a need for instant gratification and an outlet for venting prejudice, and rejecting the notion that the club might have actually done it's research, done it well, and come up with the best possible plan.

If they aren't happy (which I doubt) I would suggest they toughen up and say "hello" to the real world

Tell you something Smokey
If the RFC was perfect and the correct decisions made
We would be on top of the ladder and playing finals
Sadly off and on the field we have failed for the past 30 years
We are getting somewhat better but are still a long way off the pace.off and on the field
The argument about selling games is a disgrace if you cannot win the actual games
Especially against a team who were winless

If the RFC was perfect and the correct decisions made then we would not be having this conversation.  But.......I challenge you to present the name of any football club (global, any code) in history who are perfect and make all the correct decisions.  Actually, I'll up the ante, I challenge you to present the name of any entity - football club, business, corporation, not for profit, government, religion etc etc - in any historical era who were/are perfect and made/make all the correct decisions.  Just one Jack, give me just one and I'll admit that the RFC are negligent in their efforts.

How do you think any football club will go, climbing out of the molasses of muck that RFC circa 2009 was in, if it's not "We are getting somewhat better but are still a long way off the pace, off-field and on-field"?  Really, what were your expectations of the future of our club back in 2009?  I don't know what your point of "selling games is a disgrace" in the context of the timing of digging up Punt Road is but I will say this - I am an advocate of Gale's mantra that the club needed to correct it's off-field issues first, before concentrating on-field, and to that end I will always believe that what the club did was right in taking the money for a couple of years in an effort to accelerate debt-reduction and regain financial control, especially considering that during those years they were never going to be a genuine threat to the flag.  Gale stated this very thing from Day One and has not deviated, thankfully, as the reactions and pressure from disappointed supporters to unforeseen losses have impacted publicly on the club.

And finally, I will correct your misinterpretation (not necessarily your fault) of my statement "some of us are heavily invested in this very area".  What I meant was that some of us are heavily and directly involved in the very industry(s) performing the ground reshaping and landscaping work at Punt Road, and as such have solid and extensive knowledge on the realities of the work and timeframes involved.  It is an arrogant statement to admit you work in an unrelated area in stadia, yet dismiss other opinions as "garbage".

Jack, name a club that has made a grand final othe last 30 years that has had a senior coach in the box guiding them! You can't because there is none! This who senior coach/Director of coaching crap is media driven bullsit. Look at Melbourne :lol Fat lot of good it is doing for them!

The final minuts of the game last week should fall back onto the players and the lack of leadership on field at the time Not The Coach! It has been reviewed and spoken about on every football show on television and not once has anyone said it was poo coaching! Paul Roos even stated that the Players should know how to set up in the dying minuts and have to be told. Cotchin has admitted he brought himself off, had nothing to do with the Coach and as I stated in another thread the ten or a dozen onfield mistakes in that last 30 seconds had nothing to do with the coach!

You say we stuffed up by suspending/delisting Conners and Martin but yet you also say they (Conners and Martin) have derailed our season because of the lack of leadership at the club WTF?? Surly then the club showed who's boss by making a stand and showing everyone there actions are not acceptable at this Club!

You say you love the club yet every single post of yours seems to bag it! When things are going rosy your not heard of but as soon as we have a loss your all over our recruiting, the coach and the processes the club is going through, mate its time to move on and get a life FFS....

What are you trying to say mate? Exactly how was it Hardwicks fault?? Cotchin brought himself off with two minuts to go (big mistake by Cotch IMO) do you think Hardwick told him to stay there his day was done? No you fool, it was up to just one of the other 18 nuffers out there to come off and make the change! Cotch was standard on the bench and in all honesty if he was any sort of a leader (wich many here are touting) he would have stayed out there and not come off in the first place.

Secondly why dont you answer any of my other questions? Besides constantly baging the club your also very good at avoiding questions you have no answer for :wallywink

If you read my first post I had allready pointed out Cotch brought himself off and it had nothing to do with the coach but then the very next post you ask why was Cotch on the bench in the final minuts! WTF are you on??

Post by: Francois Hackson on July 19, 2012, 12:59:41 AM
TFT you can't be serious?

If it weren't for Cotch the game would've been over at half time. Actually if it weren't for Cotch the season would've been over a month ago.

It was ultimately Dimmas fault for not organising the rotations. He is the coach and admitted himself it was a breakdown of "communication"

"he couldn't get anyone to come off"  we're his words

At the end of the day what's done is done only a win now can reverse that loss

Mr official I'm still waiting for my question to be answered re: Daniel Jackson although I'm not expecting it to come any time soon

It isn't that hard
:lol i thought you changed light bulbs, so what the eff has that got to to do with the management of digging up a ground and getting grass sowed/laid and ready for the next pre season?

To me , your desire to criticise the club sees you post some ignorant crap, and then simply excrete more out of your blurter trying to to justify your original stupidity, but i'll give you a chance to show otherwise..

Tell us when the ground should be dug up, how long it will take to realign it, spread and level the topsoil, install irrigation and drainage, what method of establishing grass to use, and how long this will take to get to a point where it can be regularly run on without destroying the grass.

if your timing means the grass is trying to establish during the dry heat of summer, what measures would you take to help it along?

basically give us a comprehensive plan of how it could be ready for next pre sesason by starting the work 8 weeks later.

If possible jackie boy, dont answer by deflecting , just answer the effing questions above.

willing to bet you cant, coz you dont know what you are talking about.

Hi Stig,

Wonder if you can clarify something that Lids was reported as saying in his presser today?  He was reported as saying that for the first time in his eight years at the club, he had an individual video review and that previously all the video reviews were team reviews.

This sounds a little hard to believe.  Is it true that the RFC hasn't been doing individual video reviews with players after games in the past?

Thanks in advance for your clarification

What he meant was that it was the first time all coaches sat in on player video reviews, as opposed to only 1 on 1 with line coaches which is what usually happens.

I logged into "my richmond account' and changed my password to do this.
just out of curiosity i went back and tried to log in to the online store with new password...and it worked :huh3 changed my password back, and yeah, it now works

still cant use a gift voucher to make a purchase though. the input box appears for promo code, but not for do you have a gift voucher.

i rang up and made the purchase over the phone.

on a brighter note, pretty happy about being able to purchase skins using the gift cards. They are a good practical addition to the store

Honestly
Why be smart ?
The club advises once you submitted you will receive a confirmation email which I didn't receive and have been awaiting 2 weeks for
I resubmitted 10 minutes ago and received confirmation details of what the kids are to bring and wear
Email clearly states have to be there at 1pm
Don't know why I bother on here

Hang on how am I being smart?? maybe you should re word you post's so it makes sence.

You originally wrote...... "havent received anything was told orginal email it was at 1.00pm? Please advise"

Then you wrote......The club advises once you submitted you will receive a confirmation email which I didn't receive and have been awaiting 2 weeks for
I resubmitted 10 minutes ago and received confirmation details of what the kids are to bring and wear
Email clearly states have to be there at 1pm

Then RFC offical says the clinic is on 12-12.30

For starters whats this got to do with kids? Secondly If you didn't receive the Confirmation email then what is the "original" email you talk about ??

again you said and I quote......"havent received anything was told orginal email it was at 1.00pm?" So did you or did you not receive anything?? And did Membership send you something or not?

Try answering the questions instead throwing insults.....

Would be absolutely sensational to have seating around Punt Road Oval.

Be fantastic to watch matches at Punt Road Oval and I for one would be a regular attendee.

Be great if fully paid members attend for free. Or just a small price $5?

In my finest accountants voice.., ah hem.....

"We regard that our operating profit is the same as our statutory profit being $3.17 million.  We reach this position on the basis that fundraising:

Has been a significant part of our revenue profile for many years;
We have appointed two dedicated fundraising employees during the course of 2012 to ensure that this aspect of our operation will continue to be a significant revenue stream into the foreseeable future; and
Given that the fundraising function is embedded into our overall organisational structure, it is difficult to precisely identify all costs attributable to the fundraising department.

Nevertheless, in answer to your question, our profit for the year would be $1.3 million if the net proceeds from the Fighting Tiger Fund were removed from our result."

The match guernseys get auctioned or kept. They might use some old training guernseys, like the red ones or the yellow ones. It's all TBD. We're just keeping them incase we need them.

Might have a massive garage sale this time next year if we don't need them....

Tiger fans can tune into Richmond’s clash against the Indigenous All Stars, played in Alice Springs, by logging on to richmondfc.com.au.

The game will be streamed live on the Club’s website on Friday, February 8, from 8pm-12am AEDT (6.30pm-10.30pm local time).

A.M. and P.M. start immediately after Midnight and Noon (Midday) respectively.

This means that 00:00 A.M. or 00:00 P.M. (or 12:00 A.M. and 12:00 P.M.) have no meaning.

Every day starts precisely at midnight and A.M. starts immediately after that point in time e.g. 00:00:01 A.M.

I actually found the information interesting.  I had always wondered whether the AM and PM change occurred at 12:00 or 12:01 and now I know it actually doesn't exist at 12:00 either way.  Not important in the big scheme of things I know but interesting all the same.   :thumbsup

Every day starts precisely at midnight and A.M. starts immediately after that point in time e.g. 00:00:01 A.M.

Strictly speaking a.m. stands for ante meridiem (before midday) so 12:00 a.m. still makes sense if you treat midnight as the beginning of a new day. Even "12 midnight" is strictly not clear as it doesn't state whether it's the end of the old day or start of the new day. If we really wanted to avoid confusion then we'd all use the 24hr clock instead with midnight 0:00 and midday 12:00 as they do in continental European countries. Thus end the nerdy off-topic lecture  ;D.

This whole telecast or lack of telecast is very disappointing.

You have some of the best indigenous talent on show, an almost full strength AFL team, and you can't get decent coverage.

Appreciate the effort to get something going but it sounds like it's going to be a real effort to watch. I will be glued to the computer, or T-Box but I'm not really looking forward to it.

Now no commentary, it just gets worse and worse.

Why the hell is NITV telecasting that ridiculous Rugby game? I don't buy they can't do both excuse. If they can only do one it should be the AFL. NRL, bloody laughing stock stupid boring game. How embarrassing.

Why do the stuffing Bulldogs get televised when they played this game a few years ago. Twice if I remember. stuffing bulldogs guys!!! They have no supporters, teeth or soap.

Sick of the AFL treating the RFC as a joke. Surely the club has noticed that we get no free kicks from the league but still we bend over and take it.

I thought they all got broken in the re-development

Can confirm this.  >:(

Yeah some did not all but the Club was going to replace then we they were re-laid which is suppose to happen around now seeing the ground has been re-configured (I'm sure that was what the last letter said).

Not that I've really understood why they had to wait till the ground re-config was finished seeing the 2nd last letter said they'd be re-laid near the Dyer statue  :-\

But would like a definitive answer though

The round 2 St Kilda game is supposed to be the member's "make up" game fro Cairns

Will there be a designated seating area to compensate reserved seat holders or coterie members?

I've been told that the club has been selling seat upgrades to members this week. Which is great

Someone told me via twitter than they have upgraded to seats in Level N of the Southern stand

How can that be when I was told by membership before the season started that all seats up there had been sold out?

The pavers dude

I'll have an answer for everyone next week, the two people that do handled that are currently on holiday.

I can answer this one because I got a letter from the Club (sigend by Benny Gale) last week about this

Wont be until late 2012  :-\

The letter said pavers will be re-laid after the configuration the ground is complete which is planned for sometime late next year. They will be put in front of the Jack Dyer Stand.

Also mentioned some of the pavers have actually been damaged (read broken) and these will be replaced by the club when they are re-laid.

Pleased to have got the letter but disappointed that (1) some pavers have been broken and (2) it's going to be another 12 months before they are on display again

Hi Stig,

18 months on and still no pavers but of more concern/frustration since the letter from the Club back in Nov 2011 not a word.

Any idea when these we be re-laid or at a minimum some idea what is going on with them?

Maybe I should be asking for a refund? Certainly tempted (yes not very happy with the club at the moment and it has nothing to do with the on field)

Thanks,
WP

2013, 2014 or perhaps 2015? (excuse my cynicism & sarcasim - said I wans't happy)

Jack, I have no problem with them not re-laying them while all the construction was going on.

But I have letter sigend by B. Gale that says they were to be re-laid late 2012.

Since then basically nothing.

For those pavers I donated a reasonable amount to the JDF (pre Govt funding) to assist with the re-development at Punt Road.

I also understand going by Stig's repsonse that there is about to be more work done around the ground. So if that means an other delay then that's OK too as I think enough of them were broken when they moved them back in 2010-2011

But I just wont to know, when? Surely it isn't that hard  :huh

As I said I am not to happy with the club at the moment over a few things and it has nothing to do with the on-field side performances.

Just want an answer on this, think people who donated deserve a more definitive answer

It took 22 hours from the final siren for the winner to be announced – without even a comment from the winner or a photo to show he had received it – just a hastily put together re-hash of the article that was published on the club's website last week.

They should use the coaches votes for the medal.

Some of the voting from the journos was ridiculous. I take it some of them weren't at the match. TW is on another planet I'm sure.

No offense to Ty since he did have a good game but, and no offense to Cotch either, how on earth did Cotch nearly win it?

Hey Stig,

Think we might need further clarification on how the pre-sale of finals tickets works for members, in particular if we have to face C'wood.

Two large memberships bases and not enough tickets for all the members of both clubs.

How does it work to ensure those guaranteed tickets as part of thier membership category actually get tickets when both clubs will purchasing at the same time?

Or hasn't this info come through from the HQ yet? or more to the point haven't HW thought about it  ;D

Thanks

Hasn't been discussed as yet. will get an answer closer to finals and especially when we know who our opponent is.

But would of though Innner Sanctum , 3121, Maurice Rioli and current reserved seat holders should have preference over basic membership if the situation arises

yes & Nope but more nope

Inner Sanctum are guaranteed tickets to ALL finals including GF - this is because it is deemed a Coterie as opposed to a membership category

3121 - well waiting on confirmation but definitely guranteed GF tickets if we get there. But conflicting info on whether there a guarantee for tickets to ALL finals. Had someone speak to the Club about it yesterday and was told I think yes but will clarify nest week

MRC - as al posted yesterday, after speaking to membership MRC guarantees you GF ticket only and access to purchase tickets to weeks 1-3 of the finals but it isn't a guarantee for weeks 1-3.

***Access to purchase means you get access the "pre-sale" on the Monday morning 9am to 1pm before tickets go on sale to the general public

Reserved seat holder? Don't quite why you'd throw those in Jack. they are classified as Access (standard/basic members) Granted those who have reserved seats in level 2 of the Southern Stand are now guranteed a GF ticket, like MRC they are only guaranteed access to purchase tickets

Can I make just 2 points:

1/ the system for getting finals tickets based on the info the club has suppled thus far is the system that's been in place for a number of years. So it clearly works but seeing we haven't been in the finals since 2001 the club must ensure that how it all works is clearly explained to it's members. That has been done to a point but the one thing that hasn't been made clear is how ticketing will work to ensure that folks with a guarantee will defintely get tickets if end up in game against someone who has as big as or bigger mebership base than us.
 
2/ The only game that there might be a problem with getting tickets is if we face C'wood. Based on ladder postions as they stand we would paly them week 1. With 2 massive membership bases and there being Members of both teams that have a guarantee to tickets for ALL finals there has to be some mechanism in place that ensures that those people who have paid for the privlege get that privlege.

So as I said in point 1 that was the reason for question to Mr RFC_O how does that side of it work?

Unfortunately the answer I got wasn't what I was hoping for but not unexpected. So I will admit to being slightly bewildered that it hasn't been dicsussed and a plan in place. First finals campaign in over decade, you don't leave anything to chance and leave it to the last minute

TBH al, I can't see the AFL scheduling us at Docklands, they get the $$ from the gate for Finals. We guarantee them a very handsome gate indeed. Also, I reckon if we play Port it will at the MCG and it will be the "series" game - the one where finals series ticket holders get access to

And can I add (and I know I am not comparing apples with oranges) it has always staggered me that NRL Clubs start selling their memberships for next season before the current season is finished and way before their fixture is released (NRL release after the AFL)

I have already received my North Qld 2014 renewal - got it a forntight ago and I see Melbourne Storm are selling for 2014 as well

TBBH the fixture should have nothing to do with it.

All teams get 11 home games and 11 away games. The only thing that is a little "murky" IMV is the number of away games in Melbourne but in our case it will be either 16 or 17 which doesn't equate to much in the pricing

The company is discontinuing the KooGa brand, so we didnt really have a choice. If you saw the Lions gear yesterday at their training session, they are now BLK as well.

Hi RFCO,

   From my conversing with more knowledge Richmond fans there seems to be a growing sense of concern at the off season dealings of the Richmond Football Club. Of the seven new additions to the team only one is a 'kid' / 'youth' (17, 18, 19 years of age). The point has been raised that this is a terribly short sighted method to handle list management aspirations. What can you tell me to alleviate such concerns? No doubt many will feel heartened at the prospect of not having a list barren of young talent.

Cheers,

   not OE.

You're going to be disappointed Bents, Mr RFC_O doesn't comment on list management or recruiting decision

Go back to the first page of this thread,all explained there  ;D

It's true, I don't.  :)
Anything we want to say about list management changes we say through the right people: Coach, GM of Footy, etc.

When & where will these correct people be giving an explanation of the 'one kid per seven new additions' policy? When this events takes place will you be able to replicate the quotes to be read here?

I have no doubt there would be members interested in the reasoning.

They will be in the media no doubt soon enough.

A brief history: we drafted the equal most 18 year olds last year (but media decided to focus on Stephenson, Petterd and Lonergan), and this year we lost some experience in Tuck, White, Nahas and McGuane. The team finished 5th at the end of H&A so we're close to where we want to be. We drafted in three mature ages whilst still having Darrou and Cadeyn Williams on the rookie list, I don't see anything major to be worried about.

Hi Stig,

Are we planning on changing our Clash jumper?

Going by the "Dreamtime Guernsey" comp flyer we are as the template for the comp is showing a different (extremely UGLY btw) look to the current jumper.

Are members going to get a say on any change outside of getting to vote on the final 5 in the "dreamtime guernsey" comp?

The current clash jumper like it or not was chosen by the members via an online vote.

So if the club is considering a change isn't it reasonable to think that we should get some sort of say  :huh

Especially considering we've told many times over the last 12 months that the RFC exists because of its members

Thanks
WP

RE: not asking members, I obviously don't design the guernsey, but on some decisions, if not a lot of the decisions the members need to trust what we are doing with the brand.

Extremely disappointing. The new clash is worse than the current (that was voted for in 2006). The club should've done the right thing and put it to a poll like we did in 2006. It's not that hard to do but Kooga are obviously tossers to deal with.
 
We are still using our 2013 old pre season gear to train with. This wouldn't happen with other apparel manufacturers but it does with kooga or whatever they're called now. and then the club goes and resigns with them till 2017 :banghead

RE: not asking members, I obviously don't design the guernsey, but on some decisions, if not a lot of the decisions the members need to trust what we are doing with the brand.

Fair point Stig but as I said when the Club had to first find a clash jumper it gave the members a say, there was an on-line vote.

Club came up with for memory 3 designs and then the members had the final say as it was a massive decision and the club gave the members a say in chosing the one they wanted. This decision to allow members a vote on it was done based on the club's own research and member feedback that showed the Club what things were the most important to the membership.

So now it appears to me at least that the Club has backflipped on this and the wishes of the membership is not being considered because it's all about the "brand" and the clubs ability to market said brand is the main focus.

Yes we need to trust the club on certain decisions that's a given because that's what they are empowered to do

But at the same time I just think the club should acknowledge, respect and trust it's members and their undestanding of the "brand" too.

Gee you say some really stupid things  ::) KooGa (now BLK) don't design the jumpers; the club does, club gives the design to the manufacturer and they produce samples, club reveiws it and then once final design is agreed too the manufacturer produces it.

But I do agree with you (obviously) re the about the members getting a say

We are still using our 2013 old pre season gear to train with. This wouldn't happen with other apparel manufacturers but it does with kooga or whatever they're called now. and then the club goes and resigns with them till 2017 :banghead

Again agree with you about the club still using the KooGa branded stuff, poor effort from the BLK not having it ready for the start of pre-season. 

But FYI all other clubs sponsored by KooGa/BLK (read Bulldogs and Lions) have their new gear. Actually for someone who follows what other clubs are doing I am surprsied you didn't notice that  ;D

So the question should be why do these other BLK sponsored clubs have their and we don't?

On you other point about it wouldn't' happen with any other apparel supplier, suggest you have a look at a few other clubs and you might be surprised  ;D

Why don't you have a look at the embroidery close up of the RFC logo on the hoodies/polos? Makes me want to cry. Also many people have complained about crooked collars on the jumpers, and stitching hanging off stitched areas of the merchandise. You can get better quality embroided and stitched clothes at best and less.

Well considering the only things I ever buy are the polos, hoodies, caps & jackets I reckon I can comment on them and say I've never had a problem with the embroidery, it's look great.

As for "stitching hanging off stitched areas" - can tell you this happens with all clothing no matter what the brand or what type of clothing. All these things no matter the brand are massed produced and the finishing out of the sweat shops in Asia is poor very poor.

Last Adidas top I bought I had to return because when we got it home and took it out of the packet we found the stiching under the arm was missing...

No nominations for the board were received during the nominations period, so the two Directors were reappointed unopposed.

With regards to the financial report, the Club issue a copy annually to those that have requested it in prior years.  If you want, we can add your email to the list (if you dont already have it).

No I have a copy of the financials  ;D

Only reason I asked was because I was of the understanding that under corps law the Club is required to release its Concise Fin reports to its members prior to the AGM (think it is fixed number of days prior) so the members can review and then the reports can be voted on to be accepted at the AGM, hence why they are usually loaded on the web-site prior to the AGM.

Hey RFCO,

When they put a scoreboard in at PRO do you know if they will keep the enormous Tiger sign that's where the old scoreboard was?

Personally I hope they do, would look great on the TV if the game was televised and would really let the opposition know they are in enemy territory.

A professional sports club should not be training in last years apparel in 2014. Unacceptable and a sign of accepting mediocrity

Kooga/BLK should be made to pay for their mistakes. They can't even get our new 2014 gear ready. GAGF. Wouldn't happen with the major sporting apparel manufacturers

Hey RFCO,

What's the story with Todd Banfield?

Most of the time when we recruit someone like him we get a video introduction or at least a written interview. We haven't even got any decent shots of him training either in still shots or in the training videos. I know he's there because he appears in a couple of the group shots. All we have is a short bit on how Richo thinks he's a good selection.

Almost get the feeling he's a bit peeed off we selected him and he really wanted to be rookied by Brisvegas. Of course I know this isn't the case but it's been really silent about him.

I want to hear how happy he is to be with us and how he thinks we are on the verge of greatness and how he loves training with the boys and how everyone's been really welcoming.

Got a new BLK cap (black media one) for Xmas and it's fantastic. It fits much better than the last KooGa one I bought in 2012

Also has a hard copy of the year book been produced? When it was announced (via email) that you'd receive them electronically there was an option that you could still get a hard copy. I selected that option and still haven't received one

Pretty sure it was last year and related the "Fighting tiger" Magazine which the year book is falls under I reckon   :-\

If they are not producing it then I come back to one of my old chestnut questions what about those members who don't have email (and yes there are some folks that don't)

Personally I'd prefer a hardcopy and I'd argue that there are some things the club should just do. I understand they want to keep costs down but there are somethings that the cost should not be a factor. It's a balancing act for sure but they appear to be IMHO targeting the wrong things/areas.

And before Stig comes on here and tells me you can print the yearbook in "pdf" form, I've done that and the quality is average at best  ;)

I can understand them not printing the Fighting Tiger etc but to not  print and send out a 1 page renewal form is very very cheap from the club. The club has signed 40,000 members already that means at best theres 30,000-35,000 members who havent renewed. At $0.60 for postage thats just $21,000 in total add some costs for the envelopes and the printing, lets say $30,000 all up. The club just made a truckload of cash. I think its poor.

Yep, as posted below.
In the same vein, I went online to renew my membership and was given two options for future payments:
1) committed tiger monthly payment or
2) committed tiger annual payment.

I added a message to say I was not happy that the club had presumed I would renew my membership.
While I have continued to buy a membership for over ten years, I hate the idea that the club has decided I will be a committed member in the future.
It's my bloody money and I want to decide how I spend it in the future.
I have just got an email telling me that those are the only two options for online renewal and if I don't want to commit for the future I can renew over the phone.
IMO a very arrogant way to treat members who are renewing, surely it's not that hard to keep the future committment part as an option.

We are stuck with it till they fix it.

The design of the online membership renewal assists the membership department in forcing members to be have monies deducted automatically at set times.
As such it allows them to avoid having to ask members to renew each year and thus they can spend their time on getting new members.
Highly unlikely that the club's membership department would want any change to the present design.
Part of the lack of respect towards members that the Essendon member was complaining about at their AGM.
When the professionals at the club are inside their bubble it is very difficult to see any other viewpoint but their own (or their professional peers at other clubs).
Richmond staffers really care about them but sometimes members are just too difficult to herd without forcing their behaviour.

Hi Richmond twitter guy.
Can I just say that was a totally inadequate response to Smokey's concerns.

'Hey Smokey, PM me your Dad's details and I will arrange for someone from the membership department call to call your father to sign him up straight away'

would have been a more appropriate response for a Gold member. If it is indeed 'an issue' with the Ticketmaster webpage, why hasn't the club notified anyone and why isn't it being more proactive about contacting affected members, rather than blithely telling them that over the phone is the only way to do year-to-year memberships this year.

I have got concerns about this matter as a whole, it is tricking the elderly, the lead in emails are false too, they invite to "Renew your 2014 membership" when in fact when you click through to end the only option is to subscribe to a lifetime membership. False advertising on the email and that's putting it lightly, the club needs to pull it's head in.

'Hey Smokey, PM me your Dad's details and I will arrange for someone from the membership department call to call your father to sign him up straight away'

would have been a more appropriate response for a Gold member. If it is indeed 'an issue' with the Ticketmaster webpage, why hasn't the club notified anyone and why isn't it being more proactive about contacting affected members, rather than blithely telling them that over the phone is the only way to do year-to-year memberships this year.

I have got concerns about this matter as a whole, it is tricking the elderly, the lead in emails are false too, they invite to "Renew your 2014 membership" when in fact when you click through to end the only option is to subscribe to a lifetime membership. False advertising on the email and that's putting it lightly, the club needs to pull it's head in.

His message seemed as if it was already taken care of, as in if Smokey's dad is on the rollover account which it seems like he is, he's already been debited and is a 2014 member.

The last thing we're trying to do is trick anyone, it's simply for convenience so members can pay $10 a month over 11 months instead of $130 (or whatever it may be) in one go, and a lot of members love it. The ones that don't call up and opt out.

The issue with Essendon making a purely optional donation ticked by default has raised the issue for us, but ours is a different scenario as we email people and let them know they have an opt out option before we debit anything.

Yep, "already taken care of".
A gold member, as am I, upset at his treatment by the club forcing him to commit to continuing membership when renewing online.
This is a NEW situation.
In the past I would get a mailed option to renew or upgrade my membership - funny how there was never an option to downgrade my membership - and I simply chose my option.

Not sending paper renewals would be saving the club a tonne of coin. Smart move imo

They are making a truck load of coin thanks to in part their members and supporters

Think they can afford it and few other things (read member benefits) that seem to have gone by the wayside in the name of saving some coin

Yep that is the issue here  :clapping

I hope the Club isn't just paying attention to positive results of the members surveys (saw the article boasting about the Clubs success regarding m'ship in the survey) and have actually received some of the negative feedback (comments) that would have been in there outside the fiasco that was final ticketing last year

I think there are a few unhappy folks with how this year's membership renewals have been handled

What member benefits would you like to see return or improve?

And aside from paper renewals being sent out in Feb instead of November, how has this years renewal process been different?

Thank you for asking  ;D

Answering the first question

For starters:

* Bring back the Yearbook being available in hardcopy and sent to all members. It only being available via the net ignores those who don't have internet access. Ditto the Fighting Tiger Magazine - should be available in hard copy not just online.

* The Club go back to offering a membership cateogry for people who cannot get to any games. There are people who simply cannot get to games eg the elderly, folks living in places where they've go no hope of getting to a game. These people are being ignored. IMHO the 3 game membership doesn't cut it. $85 (*or whatever it costs) for access to 3 games they can't attend means they are paying $85* for a plastic card, sticker sheet and lanyard

* For coteries: improvement in the "exclusive" membership pack for these groups. **Wont go into the exact details here as I will be speaking to the guys about the Inner Sanctum side of things in due course.  ;)

That will do for now ...

Regading the renewal process, obviously the fact that people cannot go on line and just renew for this season. Have always been able to do that and now it's gone. Taking away that option as others have mentioned has disapppointed (angered) alot of people. On the one hand the club wants people to do things online but at the same time have taken away the ability for people to renew on their terms/choice.

While understand that it is in part a problem that's been created by Ticketmaster and their system I would argue that it is up to the Club to ensure the system works to the Clubs satisfaction seeing you would be paying for the use of the their system. So if the Club "OK'd" the system then the Club needs to take some responsibuility for this issue

wasnt the membership with no access to games about $60 anyway. for an extra $25 the club gives them the option of a potential 3 games + these members werent recognised by the AFL now they are all recognised.

I'll pass on the above re what you would like.

The renew option you are talking about actually changed two years ago, so your 2013 membership renewal would have had the same options.

Yes it was about $75. It was called "on the bench" but it gave the member more than a card, lanyard and stickers. You got things like pen sets, coasters, rugs, make-up bags for the ladies etc that was branded with RFC emblem.

My late Mum had this type of membership once she couldn't get to games anymore. It gave her value for her $$$, she felt part of the Club and the Club made a good margin. A win/win for everyone 

Based on what they offer now she'd be paying $85* (granted probably less for a pensioner) and the only thing she'd have to show for it is the standard card, lanyard and stickers. All the other benefits are basically electronic and she never had email or internet. So Yep that's great value for money right there...NOT

The Club happily sells "Pet Memberships" and gives a great little pack of goodies why can't they do the same for people. The Pet memberships don't impact on membership numbers so the argument about them not being recognised is a mute point IMHO
 
And just on that I dont give a rats whether these type of memberships are recognised by the AFL and quite frankly the Club shouldn't either. What is important is that the Club recognises people as members and that these people have something to show they are members of this Club.

I mean even most NRL Clubs that are so far behind AFL Clubs when it comes to memberships offer a basic package for people who cannot get to games.... and dare i say it even Collingwood have gone back to offering one

Just think it is something the Club should look into, they say they will but nothing changes

Did it I wouldn't know as I'm in Coterie so things are a little different and messy last year  ;D

But I do know last year with other the member in our household we had major problems trying to do it on-line. Wouldn't let us change it to being a rolling tiger so we ended up doing it over the phone  ;D

So are you saying that the fact that they can attend 3 games is insulting for them because they can't get there? So if they were charged $85 and denied access to any games that would be a better option?

Or are you suggesting there should be a membership for say only $30.

Or should the $85 membership have some extra stuff like hat and scarf but no games?

How much was the old membership option without games and what did those members get?

What would make this right for you?

I am not sure why you would be confused.

I think I've explained it clearly a number of times

If you read my reply to Ramps (a couple of posts back) I think I explain pretty clearly what I am talking about and what was on offer previously for around the same price

So I am not sure which part of it don't you understand or isn't clear enough

So I will repeat it again

IMHO the Club should offer a membership category for those people who for whatever reason cannot get to games. Facts are there are people who cannot get to games. So I ask (again) what benefit/incentive is a 3 game membership for them?

I have no problem with the club selling the 3 game membership it's a great idea for those who can only get to a couple of games a year

But again I come back to what about people who cannot get to any games? Surely these people deserve some sort of membership that makes them feel part of the club?

What I am suggesting is they have a membership category at around the same price as the 3 gamer but doesn't give them game access but gives them other stuff. They did it before and stopped it

I hate using my late Mother as example but as she got older she couldn't attend games anymore; even when we took her as a "disabled" person. In the end she simply couldn't go. It broke her heart not being able to go the footy (broke mine too BTW) because she loved going to the footy. When we got to that stage of her not being able attend games she still had an option to be a member but under the "On the Bench". That package meant something to her; she felt part of the club. She happily paid the money, she would tell friends she was still a member because they looked after her

Can I add: I volunteer and I take one of my dogs to visit an Aged Care Facility and the number of folks there who love footy but obivously can't go to games anymore and are no longer members of their clubs has genuinely surprised me.

I want people like that to have an option that gives them value for the $$$. Giving them access to something they will never use is not value

I'd really like to see a breakdown of our members split into reserved seat, 11 game, 3 games, dogs, cats etc to understand where we get most of our members.
I'd also like a comparison in membership revenue by club - IMO, numbers of members are one thing but you bank cashola.

Please ask the club to ensure that at the round 2 game against Carlton we ( The RFC ) have a clear and visible couple of membership tents near the Punt Rd oval and/or outside the G.
 I believe the reason given for last year's disaster was that our tent blew away or some such tripe. All i could find was Carlton membership tents everywhere. Was very emabarrassing for the RFC and must be rectified for 2014.
 Pm me if you need any help securing the tent. I got some good tent pegs  ;D

Arrgh, I'm not happy. It sounds like I am trying to get at you WP and I'm not.

What I need to help me out is some ideas. So I'll have a go.

A cheaper membership ($30?) without entry and with a cap or scarf or something and the fighting tiger mag and year book.

A membership for regional people which does not include access but includes the AFL domestic media package (live games etc over the internet) plus cap, scarf, whatever.

A membership for international tigers that includes the AFL international media package (live games etc over the internet) plus cap, scarf, whatever.

Go back to my reply to Ramps where I give examples of what they used to do

Quote

That's what I am suggesting

With "on the bench" you got the standard membership benefits = Card, Lanyard, Stickers, voting rights, Fighting Tiger Mag (in those days it was all hardcopy), inclusion to Rewards & Recognition, members cap

Then instead of game access you got something different every year. Over the years those members rec'd Coasters, pen set, throw rug etc

This year those in 3121 are getting a Rug, Swap Cards in their "3121 Exclusive membership package" (outside the normal Membership stuff).

What I am suggesting is they offer a membership package at say $75-$85 without game day access but with other goodies like what I've out lined.

Heck you can make it a keyring, or a scarf, or a small cooler bag. There are endless possibilities as to what you can get branded these days and the cost isn't massive and the profit margin for the Club would be close to 50% especially when you are already purchasing the stuff anyway and only need 1 artwork change. Go the Store web-site and look at the items in there and you'll find endless ideas

End of the day the Club used to do it and it was successful. They ditched it and replaced it this "Tiger Insider" 3 game thing on the back of the AFL not recognising that category in our membership numbers because it didn't give "game access". They want to increase revenues then offer something to people who cannot get to games, rather than just offering them something that is genuinely of no value to them

No you haven't. You've complained and then assumed I was attacking you.

You've made a vague statement saying "Surely these people deserve some sort of membership that makes them feel part of the club?" and "they have a membership category at around the same price as the 3 gamer but doesn't give them game access but gives them other stuff" which is the only part of your long post that even tries to answer my question.

What is stuff?

What I'm trying to understand is what this non access package contains.

I am sympathetic to you but if you are going to go to so much effort pointing out what is wrong I would think it would be good to put a bit of effort into offering a solution.

You don't have to, that's up to you. Perhaps it is entirely up to the club to come up with ideas to satisfy members. But they are damned if they do and damned if they don't. Whatever they come up with is almost guaranteed to be not good enough. Perhaps that serves a purpose for the members.

Just today alone I have posted about this what is it twice or 3 times and you keep asking the same questions so it's hard for me not to question whether you are actually bothering to read my replies. Or only reading and acknowledging what you feel like because I have clearly (well I think it's pretty clear) explained what they did offer, what they should offer, how much it should cost

Secondly, I don't raise this for me, I don't raise it for the sake of complaining. I raise it is because the Club IMHO is missing out on generating greater membership numbers by not catering for a specific group of folks. FWIW I haven't just posted about this on here. I have actually spoken to Membership about it. So I don't think I'm complaining or whacking them for the sake of it

Seriously is this the quote below not:

1/ explaining what they offered previously
2/ suggesting what could go in a non access package?

With "on the bench" you got the standard membership benefits = Card, Lanyard, Stickers, voting rights, Fighting Tiger Mag (in those days it was all hardcopy), inclusion to Rewards & Recognition, members cap

Then instead of game access you got something different every year. Over the years those members rec'd Coasters, pen set, throw rug etc

This year those in 3121 are getting a Rug, Swap Cards in their "3121 Exclusive membership package" (outside the normal Membership stuff).

What I am suggesting is they offer a membership package at say $75-$85 without game day access but with other goodies like what I've out lined.

Heck you can make it a keyring, or a scarf, or a small cooler bag. There are endless possibilities as to what you can get branded these days and the cost isn't massive and the profit margin for the Club would be close to 50% especially when you are already purchasing the stuff anyway and only need 1 artwork change. Go the Store web-site and look at the items in there and you'll find endless ideas

So based on the above "Stuff" varies year to year but in the past has included
throw rugs, coasters, pen sets, make-up case for the ladies,

I am suggesting items like that are the way to go. I've used the 3121 members pack as example of what they could use as "stuff"

So I am not sure which part of it isn't clear I really don't  :-\

i live interstate

i have a 5 game interstate membership + MR Club

over the years i've probably averaged between zero and one game attended on that membership

i still havent been to the MR club once

i still feel part of the club, as i would if i paid them for a piece of plastic that said "richmond groupie" on it that i hung on my ass

WP championing a group of members he/she is not part of, speaking for them and thinking for them

in the nicest possible way, FO WP  :thumbsup

gerks, you've missed my point

I am not "championing" as you put it for members like you. I am not thinking or speaking on behalf of those members like you. You make a choice, you accept what you get and you're happy to do that. Fan-bloody-tastic

But guess what ? Sometimes it's not about you and me. Sometimes it can be about those who don't actually have a voice  ;) So forgive me for even considering anyone else .. I know it should only ever be about how things effect me

I was asked a question by Stig, I answered and put forward an option/idea.

An option that the I might add Club was more than happy to have in place for a long time in the past.

Just think it's something they should consider bringing back because it's "money for jam" if it's done the right way and when it's all said and done for any club to be successful you need to be generating revenues.... this is just another way isn't it

But to make everyone happy I wont raise it again. Your message is received loud and clear!

* The Club go back to offering a membership cateogry for people who cannot get to any games. There are people who simply cannot get to games eg the elderly, folks living in places where they've go no hope of getting to a game. These people are being ignored. IMHO the 3 game membership doesn't cut it. $85 (*or whatever it costs) for access to 3 games they can't attend means they are paying $85* for a plastic card, sticker sheet and lanyard

I find it baffling that the RFC would re sign with kooga/BLK when there's clearly issues with the way they go about things. The players have been dressed in half BLK and half kooga for ages. Even in the preview for tonight's game Richo is wearing the BLK polo and Mark Williams is wearing last years kooga polo. Which other clubs do this !?

How is this acceptable ? The club should've shopped itself around to some of the more respected and more professional manufacturers. Instead we go and sign a 4 year deal with amateurs.

Hi Stig,

We have a discussion going on; on the 2014 Membership thread about how member numbers are counted in regards to people who hold multiple memberships

Could you confirm how the following are counted?

(1) In my case I have 5 memberships in my name all under the single membership number. From discussions I've had previously with membership about 5 years ago I was told that I was counted as 1 member not 5. Is this still the case?

(2) In the case of people who have multiple membership on their account but the actual memberships are in different names (eg a parent buying for their kids) how are they counted?

Thanks

1) We go off members, so even though you may have 5 memberships the tally is only 1.

2) If the membership is in the child name, it's 2, if it's all under the same name that is 1. A family membership for example, includes 4 people, so that is 4 members.

Yes and no

Clear if the membership in the child's name but not so if it is under an adults membership number but in the kids name but doesn't form part of a family membership

18th of March is a very short turn around time. However, you can say this

"If you mail the jumper to
Digital Department
Richmond Football Club
Punt Road Oval
Richmond
3121

With a return address and any message you may like Jake to make out your son, we can try and get it back in time. Alternatively, if you wait for us to come to Brisbane or Gold Coast we will have an open training the day before our game, and Jake, if he's playing, will be there signing autographs.":

What's happened to Kuhmo Tyres - their logo is goneskis from the Sponsors page? Are they goneskis?

Also is the club looking at getting another sponsor on board to replace Dick Smith to be the major backer of the "Tigers in the Outback" educational program?

Hey Stig,

You might like to have a word to the Marketing Dept about the value of playing the, "Are you giving 110%?" ads during insipid on-field performances. 

Maybe it's possible to negotiate some kind of special clause in the contract that allows the club to pull the ads at short notice throughout a game?

I know this isn't the answer you're after, but we have no say in what devices the app is built for, and I'm sorry it's no longer available to you.

The AFL and Telstra handle the app for all clubs, and they changed providers to the firm that does the AFL app (at the request of a few different parties as the old mob weren't much chop). The result for us = a much better app, better user experience as a result we've seen more downloads.

What device/os are you on? I can follow up with them to see if there's a future update coming.

Dear RFC_Official,

Can you please tell the club that its loyal supporters want the following things:

1. No spin - this is an industry that is judged purely and simply on win/loss ratios. It sickens me when the coach says we are a better side than last year when we are clearly not.  He can say that if we finish 4th as we finished 5th last year at the end of the home and away season.  I'm sure all their KPIs would be saying we are not too.  If they are then they need new KPIs.

2. Speed - the side has become slower than a dead snail, both in ball movement and leg speed.  Our fastest player from last year Matty White is not even in the top ten at Pot Adelaide for speed.  That is an indictment on our recruiting.

3. Fitness - we seem to be the least fit side in the competition.  This comes after what supposedly was our biggest preseason ever.  Something is wrong there.

4. Injuries - I am a doctor and I am horrified by the way we have handled guys like Maric, Deledio, Cotchin, Morris and now Hampson.  We must not run our players into the ground by playing them injured. As for the injury list that is published, the club must think we are absolute morons.  Rance broke his fifth metatarsal and wasn't put on the injury list during the week it happened.  He was omitted at the last minute.  What the hell is going on there?

5. Selection - guys that continually fail at basic skills like manning up, chasing, harassing, blocking for your teammate, shepherding are being played week after week.  I'd rather the club played kids who would learn to do these things.  I was watching a 10 game junior grapple Cotchin at the centre bounces on Sunday and not once did one of our players come in and protect the captain.  It's easy to place yourself between the two and bump the other guy to let them know it's not going to be easy to harass our captain. But no, not a single peep from any of his teammates.

The supporters want to hear that the club is hurting too and that things are being done to rectify the situation. We are the lifeblood of the club and as such we should be treated with the utmost respect and not treated like fools whose only worth is our money.

Please pass this on to the powers that be as they rudely never answer any emails sent to them.

Thank you.

As for the injury list that is published, the club must think we are absolute morons.  Rance broke his fifth metatarsal and wasn't put on the injury list during the week it happened.  He was omitted at the last minute.  What the hell is going on there?

5. Selection - guys that continually fail at basic skills like manning up, chasing, harassing, blocking for your teammate, shepherding are being played week after week.  I'd rather the club played kids who would learn to do these things.  I was watching a 10 game junior grapple Cotchin at the centre bounces on Sunday and not once did one of our players come in and protect the captain.  It's easy to place yourself between the two and bump the other guy to let them know it's not going to be easy to harass our captain. But no, not a single peep from any of his teammates.

The supporters want to hear that the club is hurting too and that things are being done to rectify the situation. We are the lifeblood of the club and as such we should be treated with the utmost respect and not treated like fools whose only worth is our money.

Please pass this on to the powers that be as they rudely never answer any emails sent to them.

Thank you.

Post by: Judge Roughneck on April 29, 2014, 07:56:09 PM
Rather than talk about the obvious I will say this.
Dimma has lost the plot. In 2012 we were the best contested side in the comp and used the corridor regularly with quick ball movement in 2013 we complemented this adding defensive 50 pressure and forward 50 pressure.
Why does Dimma want to forsake this and reinvent the wheel?
The team philosophy that has held firm for his first four years in nowhere now. This stop start static option footy has reminded me of the Spud tenure added with this corralling bs reminding me of the Wallet era.
For a minute there I thought that the Ponsford was still under construction and it was 2003 such was the brand of footy we were playing.
Why sacrifice the game of a 2 time Coleman Medallist to make a pea hearted footballer in Vickery the focus.
Why keep playing blokes like Grigg Edwards Chaplin Newman Houli  and such who have been abysmal. Our attack last year was launched from half back this year we have got nothing from Houli Newman or anyone.
Why make players do what is unnatural to them and get naturally attacking minded players and input a defensive mindset in them?
Houli squibbed it in front of me again in front of the Olympic in the second.
Titch, Petterd, Grigg I don't care how many times they get it, quantity will always loose out to quality no matter what.
This club is happy with 110% FTF and high membership bases with no on foeld return.
Port were 6 games worse off than us in 2012 yet the way things stand now they licked the Cats who in turn will annihilate us as they always seem to do next week.
The club is a constant annual failure who are lucky to have the supporter base they have. As much as a Cllingwood flag in September has a special mystique about it as their GF failures so are our annual failures given that even though last year may be regarded as a success being knocked out of the finals by a side that failed to qualify is a massive failure of sorts given we were also 5 goals plus up in the third quarter.
The apparent lack of cohesion, speed, constructiveness and ability to back up your team mate has totally devoid the side of any flair and continuity that served us so well especially in 2012/13 and for parts of 2011 when we realised that potentially we have a side that may play a sustainable brand of football that could take us well into September.

This club it seems is once again making the mistake of putting the cart before the horse and counting its membership base, profits and potential ucess rather than planning on sustainability. Dimma is coaching like a man who is bereft of any ideas and planning unnatural game plans for players who seem to be confused and bereft of inspiration themselves. We saw this with Frawley post 2001 when we made finals and despite any injury concerns to key players this should not be enough to set us back the way it has as 2003 we saw more of the same crap.

Dimma has really lost me after the Bulldogs game I was angry given how we lost and given where the two sides were on the table last year but that was the warning sign that now has turned into a full blooded DEFCOM 5 alert and we are really in danger and I aint talking about this year because I feel right now it is gone and given we have Geelong on the rebound next week but next year and 2016 the next two years of Dimma's tenure.

If it aint broke why fix it? Unless you want to be too smart and not play to your strengths.
I would rather isolate Jack and use Griff and have another tall third option by bringing Lennon into the side.
Vickery has lost me given his attitude. If Lids has an Achilles put him on the LTIL and promote Miles. Geez we need a small classy crumber who can play midfield we are so lacking in that area it aint funny. Has been for years since Naishy left for Port. Would retain Gordon and Lloyd as especially the former whilst making a blue at least presents and gut runs.
Arnot, McDonough, Griff, Astbury must play week in week out and when Dea is available play him too.

Would ratherlose with the kids than lose with the same footballers who give the same paltry output year in and year out. If Newman is a leader spend two years in the ressies and teach and nurture the kids. Add Houli, Titch, Grigg, Petterd just to name a few and add a few others like Chaplin, Hampson when Maric is fit as Griff on one leg is better than that spud of a footballer and we gave up pick 28 for this but hey Hawthorn give up pick 17 for McEvoy. :-\

This season is salvageable and if it means playing the kids with a spine of senior players in the 80-150 core to guide us then so be it. Time for Cotch, Martin, Jack, and some lesser types like Ellis and Grimes and a few others to model themselves on Floss and see how he goes about it.

I could bear the floggings in 2010/11 because we were rebuilding from scratch given the retirements and the list degradation that set in by the time 2009 finished but our list is fast becoming if not already is the same failed list that tokenly made a finals series for the first time in a decade and if 2020 odd is the next time we make it because history is repeating and the same mistakes are being made  then everybody in the club should be ashamed of this.

How can Port do it and overtake us and Bulldogs start a rebuild 2 years after us yet bear fruit against us already whilst we claim we are finals bound and get an 11 goal flogging from the reigning premier whom we beat by 62 and 41 points the last two times we met. Mindset and garbage planning, list management, coaching agendas and personnel selection in the team 22 has negated any opportunity we have had to build on the last four years of significant on and off field productivity and improvement.

Granted, it was probably decided a while back to launch now but I would have thought considering the anger about at the moment it would have been a wiser move to delay a couple of weeks

Can you try explain the Club's logic of having start this week?

There is no logic other than they know they will some idiots who will give them money and thats how they roll. They dont give a stuff about the supporters or the members, all they care about is how much money they can get from us so they can pay themselves their wages and salarys and pay their average hack players recruited from other clubs. Thats all they care about. They have no other logic.

Not sure about that PM.  The rule states that you can elevate a rookie from round 11 onwards.  So if they elevate him now they will need to demote him when King comes back.  As long as they haven't elevated another rookie after round 11, he will be able to be re elevated immediately as our nominated rookie when King comes back.  Of course the club may want to elevate another rookie for the LTI list and leave Miles for after round 11.

Essentially that's right, we can elevate anyone from the rookie list to replace King on the main list.

If we lose the toss, what emotional effect will that have on the players.

Just send the captain out for the toss.

Have no probs with you opinion, you're entitled to it

But it would have been nice if you posted your reply in the first place I posted the suggestion (= Alex Rance thread) rather than here where I was hoping the idea didn't get lost or missed by Mr RFC_O

Hi Stig,

It's been suggested that I re-post an idea I put forward in the Alex Rance thread regarding a possible tribute to Tom Hafey

Here's what I suggested:

As proud custodian of the number 18 guernsey, think it is appropriate that Rance tosses the coin this week as an extra mark of respect to Tom Hafey.

Agree. Besides, Tommy has been celebrated mainly due to his coaching record at Richmond not for his achievements as a player.

It's just an idea seeing we are honouring the man and everything he did at Richmond and for the Richmond Football Club.

If he hadn't of played for the Tigers do you think he would have been considered as Coach?

And besides, if losing a toss is going to cause emotional distrss to the players then we might was well not show up at all.

Hey RFC Official,

I attended training this morning and it was great.

The tshirts the players wore were very simply but just perfect.

The staff working in the shop mentioned that the club wont be selling them. Surely the club could sell them and donate all proceeds to Cancer research.

They would sell like hotcakes.

Anyway well done to the club on this morning, enjoyed a nice cuppa while watching the boys run around.

Well I posted a thread to RFC official after the hawks loss which was left alone for a while as I didn't post in this one.
I know you are not in the hierarchy but I need to vent.
We had a good thing going, we bottomed out but were on our way back up. We had debt but were promised that if we eradicated that debt that we would get better. We needed to be debt free to compete during free agency, we needed to be debt free to source and recruit the best talent and the best support staff. The roar was back!
We put in financially and emotionally.
Now all I get is text messages, facebook posts and, worse, face to face contact telling me how pathetic we are.
Four years ago, when we were poo, I argued against it. I stuck up for the club I love. I told my kids to hang in there, we will be good. The club told me we would be. It must be true.
Now sadly, I can't defend my club anymore. We are pathetic. When my kids ask why we lost, I can no longer say that we are rebuilding, I can only say we are pathetic.
How sad is that to say about a club I love?

It isn't hard to please Richmond supporters.

If you play horrible players like Grigg, Hampson, Chaplin, Petterd, Vickery who are given matches, and lose, we will be ropable!

If you play a slow, to the boundary, no hard running style game plan, we will be ropable!

If you play young cubs and we lose, there is understanding as to why we lose.

Jackson gets matches because he fits Hardwick game plan perfectly!

Shane Edwards, over 100 matches played and still can't find consistency! He is a genuine small sneaky forward. Leave him there!

Brett Deledio, well all that can be said is that there is a CLEAR reason why Trent Cotchin is our Captain, because he is a genuine leader that even on one leg competes, creates, runs and kicks goals when we need it.

I actually respect the fact that you came in here this morning. Well done. I have to admit I wasnt expecting to read any posts from you. That shows you have some respect for the supporters. I actually mean it when I say thats a good effort but it doesnt take away the fact that what happened on the weekend was a disgrace and yes we know its not your fault, but unfortunately your a conduit to (unfortunately) the people who are making decisions down there and its their performance that should under the microscope and I just dont mean the coach but the administration, the football department leadership, the recruiting team and the fitness guys as just a start.

Seen your the PR guy, l want you to go ask Damien Hardwick this question & return with a answer thanks.

QUESTION.  Why do the players every week kick 10 to 15 meters kicks to the next contest which most times a player is under pressure & the team is under pressure. They create their own pressure. Why does the coach allow this to happen constantly & why does he not do something to stop it. Is he coaching the club for the Richmond Football Club best interests.

It's a simple genuine question as for the life of me having coached alot of football.  l want to know why these players play the way they do & if its worth following this club come 2015. l demand to have a answer being a longtime Richmond member.

The RFC recognises that sports betting is a legitimate pastime – the promotion you see is aimed at those who do bet, to consider Sportsbet.

For social media, on Facebook all our sportsbet posts are set to 18+ only, as are all our emails that go out from us. Twitter doesn't allow such an age restriction.

If parents are so stupid as to allow their kids to bet then they are in my opinion criminals. Kids should be brought up to understand that these things are just their for a bit of fun when they grow up not to be used as some sort of conduit to a better potential lifestyle or an alternative to getting a job. The club is doing 100% the right thing, if people cant control themselves stiff poo.

I understand your position but I disagree. Gambling is as bad for society as smoking is and takes a huge number of innocent parties in its wake.

I'd much rather the RFC show some guts like North Melbourne did and turn its back on this money, which is a drop in the ocean for the club.

If you don't stand for something, you stand for nothing. Actually that could well sum up lots of issues at the RFC.

The club should be investigated by the fraud investigation squad. AFL supporters from all clubs bet on AFL games & yet RFC put clearly injured & lame players on the park who are injected & can not perform at the best interests of the betting public. Jackson & Hampson clearly 2 players who should not have started. Club will never get another cent from us & you lose 14 memberships in total just from my family.

Seriously, how could this happen?

And we had a guy called Miles smashing the door down in the VFL that could have taken his place!!!!

Even Hampson was favouring a knee and Maric was so underdone it was not funny.

I think the club has to look long and hard at its medical staff in the off season as well as its fitness staff as there are things amiss here...

We don't have a football department email, so the best one is to send to membership. Dimma in the past has asked for some of those emails to be forwarded to him so he can get a feeling for what the fans are saying.

Pretty sure between the Club and Sportsbet can reach enough people without using twitter

I did all I could and unliked the club from my Facebook and Twitter feeds.
My membership will also be downgraded next year purely on the back of the club forcing it's gambling sponsorship down supporters throats.

Hope the money's worth it Richmond.

Is this thing still on?

I noticed another club promoted gambling tweet this evening.

So RFCO, to go back to my original question, the RFC policy is to protect minors from club promoted gambling ads if the social media network makes it easy to do so, otherwise it is open slather?

So youre not upset by the performance just by the fact that the club gets sponsored by a gambling outfit? Ever been to Crown? Ever been in a TAB or a PUBTAB? ever watched the Melbourne Cup on TV? Dont be stupid. Leave because your peeed of at the administration at them taking the pee out of us but for a sponsorship arrangement ... seriously? wtf.

I can't answer the on-field related questions as was stated from the beginning, sorry.
The question I posed was not for you to answer but to see if you could deliver it to the appropriate people at the club. I would hope their answer could be then be relayed back to this site via you.

Thanks.

With respect, Mr RFC_O made it clear from when he first started posting here that he couldn't answer questions related to the on field stuff. Directly or indirectly that's what you are asking here

I appreciate people don't like that but that's the way it is and has always been.
That's fine WP, however, last time he did say he'd pass things on.

Yeah that's was passing on comments about people's frustration about where we are at

He may pass on the question but he isn't in a position to give an answer
No problem WP.
Is there a way of getting answers to any questions? The club never respond to emails. As a member of many years with significant financial contribution, it would be nice to get answers to some basic questions and I'm not talking about ranting and raving.

the club does respond to members emails, As l got one when l told them l was cutting them off after the Melbourne loss. To my surprise a email was sent back to me on that Monday morning very early. Maybe l was the first they heard from after the game that day as l left early & sent the mail while traveling. But me being a faithful Tiger supporter for over 45 years l again go to the football thinking they will change. Nope it was worse than the Melbourne game against Essendon. l left early again & wont be returning to watch that type of football ever again. My hard earned is going to my local football club & not another cent to fund AFL coffers. l am done wasting thousands yearly going to the football in the city. l can turn on the pay tv if l want to watch football but if Richmond play football like that l will switch it off. No more stressing myself. You get that Gavin  ;D

Sure, best to discuss directly over the phone with membership team, call 1300 RICHMOND and see what they can do.

The normal poo that we have a right to be upset & that all feedback will go to the football department.
l was not giving them feedback. l was telling them they ain't getting 1 more cent from my family & that l don't care that l'm a long time member cause l'm cutting them off. Nothing will change our mind on not renewing. They can make the finals & win the premiership. Its not the club that has really peeed me off. Its the way the players chip the ball around. They are tanking out on that field. l'm a punter & lay out some big $ & if they cost me big $ than they can get stuffed. Ugly football is not worth watching for any supporter & its surely bringing the game into disrepute. There is more people talking about Richmond than the Ben Cousins drug saga.

Hey RFCO,

Will the club look at buying facebook likes like the other Melbourne clubs?? Hawks were behind us last year and have somehow managed to get over 200k in a few short months. A quick look at their, Collingwood, Essendon and Carlton fb pages shows that they have fake likes with fake people from Asia and India who live overseas and apparently follow these clubs. These fake likes have been purchased by the clubs (which you can do).

Carlton had only 8-10k more than us too last year and have magically gone up to 200k in a few months and then they publish these rubbish figures in the age. I'm not happy about it at all. Can we take it up with the Afl?

The irony of the club shoving gambling advertising down the supporters throats is that on field the players are true wowsers.

When the heat is on they do not gamble at all. Too pee weak to take a risk.
No run, no dare, no heart, no flair.

Anyone can buy FB likes, but I don't think other clubs have bought them in phishy scammy way you're describing. We have done FB advertising in the past, we've set up ads that target people in Australia that like other pages such as: Cricket Australia, Tennis Australia, AFL, etc but we haven't done that recently. We were ahead of Hawthorn until they won the premiership, it's as simple as that. Winning is the best form of marketing.

Since we all got verified ticks the average of new 'likes' per day is on the increase.
