The race to be the first club to 100,000 members
« on: December 15, 2017, 03:32:28 AM »
Jeff Kennett at last night's Hawthorn AGM claimed they would reach 100,000 members within 5 years.


Oh and also 20 premierships all up by 2050  :chuck.



HAWTHORN plans to win seven more premierships by 2050, at a rate of one flag every 4.7 years.

President Jeff Kennett has tonight unveiled the club’s plan towards 2050, and plans were bold.

Kennett said the first stage of the strategy is titled “Dare to be Different” and that the Hawks are determined to win two premierships and amass 100,000 members within the next five years.

It also wants to extend its deal with Tasmania and obtain an AFL Women’s licence in that time.

We're at 66k already wouldn't be surprised if we break 80k. Gosh if we play well we could break 100k this year.

Remember how we were ridiculed for daring to present an ambitious plan on what we wanted to achieve!

70k for the first 4 weeks and then 25k after they microwave their memberships

Hawks are cooking up something to ensure they are number 1 in 2018. Someone on BF says they're at 64k as of several days ago which i find astonishingly ridiculous if true

A year or so later than planned but in fairness the Club did deliver on the 3-0-75 plan and more importantly a flag  :thumbsup.

Sorry but I think these goals are crap if you are a good side. They're aimed for sides down the bottom of the ladder.

A good teams goals are simple. You aim to win every battle within every game and thus win most games which leads to regular finals and thus a chance to win the flag. If you can achieve that with relative frequency, your memberships will automatically go through the roof and you will be debt free with reasonable management of the money coming in.

As the wise man says, you focus on the process that will give you success and then success will come. You don't aim for success itself.

And then there's a vision of success which defines outcomes that inspire belief.

I would have thought if you keep winning year in, year out, you also get long term success.....  ::)
