The membership options this year will not help things either, very short sighted in my opinion.

I have spent $195 this year so far, and have a membership pack and tickets to 4 games (all on the hill). Around that amount used to get 10 games and the membership pack.

I can afford it, but it annoys me that to see 10 games this year will be near enough double what last year was. If the game day prices increase beyond what they have been so far I may consider my options for other games.

Others can't afford that increase, or will decide it's too much and spend their money elsewhere.
Your valued contribution is admirable and inspiring feathered friend


The life and death question I will ask you and every Manly supporter is

This poor excuse has not stopped our current 10,000 passionate club members
What is your next excuse ?

Loyal and Passionate Manly fans could not give a rats arse if the Eels offered a one dollar membership to support their club that represents a disgraceful 14 wooden spoon and a tarnished history.

Comparing potential membership catchment areas for Parramatta and Manly Warringah is like comparing apples to oranges. For kids growing up on the coast the lure of the ocean is great, thus the vast majority will dabble in one or more water sports, such as surfing, lifesaving, swimming, yachting etc. This impacts the chance that they will be interested in football.
Whereas, kids growing up inland, such as Parramatta, do not have easy access to the ocean, so their chosen sports will be land-based, such as rugby league.
Parramatta RL does not have the same strong competition for alternate sports as does the MW area. Rugby is also much more popular in MW than it is in Parramatta.
Like MW, the scenario is similar in the Cronulla Shire which helps explain why the Sharks' membership is also low.
It will never change, which is why posting raw data ad nauseum Bozo paints an inaccurate picture of a RL club's support and has worn thin.
What I would like you to do is post the membership numbers of the myriad of lifesaving and surfing clubs in the MW area and then compare it to those in Parramatta.

Reality is footnoted by excuses and reasoning . I love pragmatism but it doesn’t apply here

Passion changes everything

I was born in Europe ,

I live in the Southern Suburbs

But I bleed Manly

Does that make sense ?

Neither do you feathered friend Because passion over rides every thing and with stands every obstacle
and I am now convinced that some Manly people have no idea about what passion really is !!!

That's another problem, seems you don't even get game admission with a membership these days, which is a rather significant change from the past.

That is a big thing, I've always gone for the 3 game membership.
It more or less forces me to go to three games that I may normally not.
I don't just live up the road.
I believe that our membership packages are just not affordable to most families with kids. My kids are all grown up but why not make children's membership free with their parent's membership and free admission to games for kids.
Spot on,
I've said it before, sports marketing should be a no-brainer.
The future is the kids, condition them to be members and go to games ( and then buy merch ) and by the time they're adults it's just what they do and it rolls along.
It's the kids that push the parents to go, I know my kids do, even my grown up one.
Have a card stamp with the kids membership that for every game they go to they get stamped for a discount on merchandise, of course they'll hassle the parents to get to the game because they want a hat or a ball or...

It's not rocket surgery.

Thanks for sharing your passionate views on our legendary club feathered friend

Mr Penn is no stranger to success as he was involved in our last premiership win and also many Manly finals appearances .

Every club goes through its ups and downs Including Nick Polities Roosters which stooped as low as wooden spooners in 2009

The tide always turns feathered friend and our team was finals bound last season before we lost key players .

With a bit of luck and a lot of hard work, effort and passion on and off the field I believe we have the team to go all the way and we want you and every Manly supporter marching with us and Inspiring us every step of the way

Never give up hope and leave the eagles nest where you belong
We want you feathered friend !!!
View attachment 16986
In the end we have differing opinions , that does not make either of us wrong. Im passionate about my team but get hammered as i doubt our number 7 's value not committment. Some people provide intelligent debate, others probably ignore me and some go the pot shots , and try to diminish my opinion, by ridiculing my claims

Stay you, until they kick you off is my motto.

kick off soon so we are all to busy arguing soon to worry anyway

About 6 weeks in i would like to see foran at 7 and schuster at 6 and see how we go. Just want schuster to get a few games under his belt first

A question to The Wheel re Membership:
I have been a Member for many decades, but I like to make my decision each season, not be automatically renewed. I think it is the club's hide to presume I'll always sign up.
Anyway, when trying to renew this season it appears I can only do it if I Auto-Renewal. It won't accept any other payment play.
Is this correct?
PS: I did relent and I have signed up, but I don't like the idea that every year my membership will be automatically deducted from my credit card.

I 100% agree with you Who. It appears to be the way of the current subscription world apparently. I am still trying to cancel an automatic anti virus subscription after two years trying.

No I highly doubt that is the case. Sounds like an IT issue. Suggest give the membership team a call and ask to be taken off auto renewal.

They are really helpful team and I am sure they can work it out

I was also born in Europe

I've also bled Manly since 1966
Makes a lot of sense to me. Would life be worth living without my team?, I would find it very hard.

I wasn't born in Europe but my ancestry is European, or at least it wants to be. Go Scotland the Brave :)
And Manly!
