I am going to upgrade to Maroon and White
How can this be an upgrade, and I am by no means being critical of you CW but rather it is something I have not come to grips with the current membership packages.
The M&W membership entitles you to GA admission to all home games plus the other gimmes. Assuming that includes entry to the SCG for the Parramatta match that means that your membership fee of $250.00 will actually save you $14.00 in admission costs alone, again assuming you would attend all home games as I am sure you do and will continue to do so.
So how does this help with the members purchasing back more shares in the club?
According to my mathmatics this means that from existing members like CW the football club will actually lose $94.00 in revenue based on what these members would have contributed to the club in 2005.
Of course this doesn't take into account the fact that the club have the use of your money for the majority of the season and will have the entry money regardless of wether you attend matches or not, but I suspect that most people who purchase any of the M&W package are more motivated by the fact that they are getting a season ticket than any other reason.
