Once the afl audit the figures theyll drop the email registrations that are counted as memberships and their total will drop by about 25k again. Seriously, cllubs used to take the pee a bit when they counted non matchday access memberships to the total amount but at least those memberships were still $$$, the crows are adding email registrations that give you 10% off their merchandise as memberships  :whistle

LOL. So they are pretenders off as well as on field :yep.

If we did that we'd have 150k  ;D. I remember Benny Gale saying at a fan forum after he became our CEO that we had over 100k names on our membership register despite our membership tally at the time being only half of what it is now.

A Port supporter has been adding fake registrations to the Crows emailing list:

Apparently, one of our own Tiger supporter registered the name "2017 Premiership Cup"

Question for anyone out there in the know.

The darls family tried to organise a membership for this year for her cousin and they were apparently told that they couldn't sign him up and he had to go on some sort of waiting list? Before I email the club a scathing blast, can anyone confirm if this might be the case and how this has happened?

Cheers  :thumbsup

Depends on what they were trying to buy

Certain membership cateogories have sold out

My understanding is that all reserve seating categories are sold out. If you check out the membership website and sold out signs are everywhere

For GF ticket guarantee there are only 2 coterie memberships (Inner Sanctum & RFC Executive) available. Cheapest one is IS @ $2400

You can certainly buy standard 11 game or 17 game memberships

The following categories now have waiting lists

MRC
3131
All reserved seat categories

How's it happened? Easily winning a flag contributes. FWIW 3121 & MRC have had waiting lists now for at least 3 seasons

First  item he should cover.

"How we have built resilience amongst our members by not sending them the stuff they ordered from The Superstore 2 months ago".
