$7 a game for the season - I am in Marketing with a large Bank and if I had a product like we did and we were giving it away at that price I would be fired. The Tigers games and membership is worth more and we can get more. I actually thought the memberships this yr and all the different options were reasonably priced.
A number of areas they can improve on like any club but we seem to be doing better and better each year.
Key areas for mine to improve is getting the payment plans set up earlier and promoted better - for example a Pinnacle Membership is only 20 a week if someone can pay over the whole year - Imagine how many of them you could sell if promoted as $20/ week. All clubs though not just the tigers could do this better.
I agree that it would be great to have our products out for Christmas with the new Jerseys but sponsors for some teams are locked in some years and not others - The dogs for example didn’t have a sponsor till round 2 a couple of years ago.
The use of Westst Tigers Colours and Branding and moving away from the Magpies and Balmain branding this year is a great inative and something Humphreys needs to say at every opportunity - the children supporting the team only think of themselves as Wests Tigers Fans and the adults (who seem generally to be more childish about then the children) need to do the same. I would think that eventually we need to re-badge all the leagues clubs as Wests Tigers as well- we need to move from a joint venture to one club because in 20 years all the Wests and Balmain Supporters will be gone and we will only have Wests Tigers Supporters.
Humphreys is doing a fantastic job but like every business we have more to work on but the key of increasing revenue seems to be going great
Just wondering if someone could help me - I signed up for my membership last week for the first time now I am in Sydney and can go to games. I went to the members only area and it keeps saying surname/ pin incorrect. I am guessing it is because I signed up on the day they were closing for the holidays and perhaps didn’t get a chance to load it
I am really keen to read the Season 2010 members only report if someone knows another way to access or can send it to me - I can prove I am a member if needed as I understand its a membership benefit hence why we try not to publish on this site

Why is their no option still to pay by the week/ fn / month. Also the lack of proper promotion has been an issue . Also they could sell so many more of the non ticketed or even country memberships if they just were a little smarter about it , they really need to learn a lot from big businesses in these spaces and not just the tigers but every team
I think both he and Galloway are just getting to the age when they are hitting their peak as Props and I think they suffered in comparison somewhat from being starting props from such a young age. Shillington had his really big year last year and Gibbs is a year younger then him. Gibbs has established himself this year as the best defensive prop in the game he just needs a few more meters but really that would only be another 10m run a game and he is in top form
I am pissed off and not so much just at them but at all new clubs in all sports ours included for choosing horrible American Names - BE PROUD OF OUR NATION - call your selves the Western Sydney Wombats or the GWS Goannas just dont choose stupid names like Giants or Titans - Now I know we are the tigers and they (excluding the mighty tassie tiger) are forign but they are also 100 yrs old these guys have a new chance
