Am sure I read somewhere that the Lions have about 3,000 members in Melbourne, whilst the Swans are closer to 10,000. Very good away support when each club has to play in Melbourne that's for sure.

Comparing memberships is a useless metric!!! It's ingrained in the fumbling game. If you're not a member of a club in fumble land you get ostracised and shunned by society!!! The bubble dwellers treat ya like a leper!!!

In RL land it's just a casual thing. It's not life or death like it is deep inside the southern bubble.

memberships pretty much came into Rugby league in the 2009 season where there was suddenly a push.
beforehand it was non existent.
it came in when the stress of leagues clubs finances started to be reduced.. and clubs looked at it as an addition revenue stream.

i could honestly say if leagues clubs were not effected.
rugby league prob still would not have a membership base as at present.

I thought Lions would be around 8k

I have been an occasional member of an AFL club, I have never been ostracised or shunned by anyone for not being a member.
I have only been asked if I’ve been a member when someone can’t go to a game and wants to lend me their ticket.

Another Terry attempt to inflame the masses?

did you have a fucking brain meltdown? heaps of people arent members, fuck i barely know any members. I havent been a club member for years.

Its not life or death anywhere
Some people think football is a matter of life and death. I assure you, it's much more serious than that.
