We got 20,000+ in 2018, despite the news that Hodgson had been injured. Something is very wrong here.

I'm going to become a member when Ricky Stuart is sacked.

So, 2045.

I skipped being a member one year as a protest against John McIntyre. He was gone the next year, IIRC.

Yep, no chance I’m contributing a single cent to this **** show in its current state.

I received my membership pack on Monday morning. The poncho is better quality than I expected. Certainly better than some I've owned in the past; they weren't much better than a garbage bag in some cases.

The membership sticker will be going on the car soon. The 30th anniversary sticker... errr, not a fan of the design, but I guess it's easy to reproduce at various scales.

Hopefully, the boys will have a great year and I'll find myself looking at how to upgrade my membership during the season.

UPDATE 29 January 2019:
I haven't gotten round to putting the sticker on my car yet and probably just as well. I read on a Raiders fans FB page that one fan's sticker has already started to fade.

This happened a few years ago when the poorly varnished sticker for that year looked older than the ones from previous years that were still on the rear window.

As far as I'm concerned, the sticker is one of the "must be included" items in a membership pack. I'm guessing someone doesn't know enough about printing to know what's required for a long-lasting sticker.

Not happy with the way the club handled the Jack Wighton incident. I’ll be watching on TV but I won’t be parting with my hard earned next year.

The decision to take away one of our home games to Wagga - and effectively significantly increase our membership prices - has left a bad taste in my mouth. I've certainly renewed but I've pretty much decided I won't be going to Wagga.

All I want is a grandstand seat, and some cover. But we can't get that at a reasonable cost. I think the members are being treated poorly. As I’ve said in another post, I’ve been treated better by other taking the Raiders to country venues, than by our own club.

I'm waiting until mid Feb. I have eye surgery so I'll be even more one eyed. I'm waiting to make sure my vision will be okay. There were games this season where I moved to the back of the stand to watch the Tv's because I couldn't see properly.

Mine was meant to arrive yesterday but arrived Monday :D

Glad they used Australia Post this year instead of those courier please muppets who ended up attempting to deliver it somewhere in Sydney before giving up and sending it to me by putting their branded satchel into an Australia post parcel...

Last year was a shocker with "couriers please "

I asked the membership team at the last home game were they using them last year as last year both mine were signed for by "front door" . Thankfully a neighbour found them each time and put them at my f front door ( i am in a unit)

They said they were going back to Aus post after having to track down half the members packs last year.

" front door" signed for most of them in Sydney ( dont you hate doors with opposable thumbs!)

And in canberra it was "ian" signing them all, maybe he is the house elf? :)


Another great move by the nrl getting all clubs using the same courier last year Image

You know you can divert your parcel to a 24/7 parcel locker and then pick it up whenever you want? :)

I’m glad to hear it Red.

What I’m struggling with these past few years is I’ve stopped loving them after 30 years of support. The club is playing checkers while so many others are playing chess, and the arrogance/ignorance of those involved at the top is infuriating.

I need changes made to get the love back. I can’t do it anymore with Stuart at the helm.

Mamando, I know exactly where you are coming from. I had given Sticky support up until this past year. All the talk about 'focus on defence' during the last off season kept me intrigued for what could happen. To say it was a disappointment is an understatement. All of the Coaches look at stats and know that the teams that win the comp are Top 4 defensively (The only exception over the past decade was Nth Qld in 2015 and they were 5th best defensively). It is the common thread to success. It is so long since the Raiders were in the Top 4 defensively that I cannot remember it. Matt or Ed will know, but the point is we are pretenders until we get our defensive mojo back.

I want to stay a member so the CEO and Board will know that I am a long term supporter/member of the Club and what is being dished up in terms of on field defensive performance is not acceptable. There does not seem to be performance KPIs in the Coaches contract. I don't want to know how much money he is being paid but I would like to see a copy of the section of the contract which relates to on field performance. Four out of five years it is F for Fail. Pass mark being a Top 8 spot. Distinction being a Top 4 defensive side. I long for the day we produce a defensive display like the Chooks did in the 2018 Grand Final. I know we all look for different things in the game, but the team needs to be operating 'as one' defensively. The bloke on the field who is the biggest threat is the bloke with the ball in his hands. Gang tackle that threat and drive him back. Have that as the team mind set and I think we will go so much better.

Latest membership count is 7976. That compares to 9163 at the same time last year. That is down almost 15 per cent.

It is the lowest membership tally for any club (where figures are available). The Storm (-1.3 per cent) and Sea Eagles (-2.7 per cent) are the other club that are down on last year.

I have a large head too... Mine arrived today. Haven’t opened it yet because it’s a Christmas present for the young bloke and I. Will check it out when he’s asleep.

Yup, you can throw me in that boat too. First time without a membership in about a decade.

Not Stuart's fault though, he's not the one missing tackles out there. Have you ever coached?? No? Well you're not allowed an opinion then.

That's admirable, Red. But I think anyone who knows me knows how much I love the Canberra Raiders.

But I can't honestly continue to be a paid member while the club continues to be run the way it is. And if I can't make a statement by not paying for a membership or attending their games, then it seems to me there's no other way I can have a voice.

I renewed by membership and got it yesterday, always will but it’s the best Scam going around. Better than the ATO scam even.
