you pay for a service and you sre not getting it e.g. games for ticketed members the fans deserve some compensation for games missed
That would be fair enough if you bought tickets to the games, say from ticketek or NRL.com. In this case we bought MEMBERSHIP as a means of supporting the club, different. The option of supporting the club hasnt been removed.
Not saying that it isnt unreasonable to expect refunds, but it isnt a direct transaction.
Except they aren’t really memberships are they? They are season tickets, I buy my membership for the seats I get at the game! Many people are the same. I am not looking to make a donation to the club, I have done that through the new foundation they have set up as I can claim a tax deduction on it!
See that’s the rub right . That’s where you and I differ . I don’t buy for the seat as I can’t get to most games as I don’t live in Sydney , and C-town being my nearest of our grounds absolutely sux IMO. I want to buy a membership to support my club . I explained my thoughts and why earlier. Mate I actually agree with most of what your saying , I’m just offering a second point of view. If you can’t afford it you can’t afford it , that’s fine , I’m just saying the reason I don’t think of membership as the same as tickets. 1 is more like charity IMO , so not really tangible , the other a fixed transaction . That’s what my point was.
Do you understand what I’m saying ?t
I understand what you mean. I haven’t lived in Sydney itself for some time now. I rarely get to all the games my membership entitles me to. It’s nice to have the option but like you it’s supporting the club through money and membership numbers that is important for me.
Clubs won’t be able to afford direct refunds for memberships. Most likely you’ll get discounts or credit for next year when the virus drama is over. If everyone demands refunds now our club could sink, lucky we are better off than most clubs in the financial department thanks to Pascoe.
Which would do me tbh
