Heres Hoping that someone from the Penn Family is actually reading this and takes notice. The last few years while being full of success have been a shambles off the field. the club could easily be acknowledged as the most successful club in the last 10 years on the field. Off the field things are vastly different. I am extremely great full to anyone that puts his or her hand in there own pockets to financially support our great club. be they owners directors or members and fans who buy memberships and merchandise and attend games. I am sure that your family are smart businessmen and have amassed your wealth on the back of smart business models and budgets to back those ideas. Now is the time to instil that same business model into our beloved club. the time for family members that don't possess the current qualifications to do the job to not get a start in the rebuilding. Here is one fans blueprint on what he would love to see happen to his club over the next few years. We need to find, employ and properly fund the membership, marketing and social media side of the business. We are absolutely lacking in member and fan interaction compared to other clubs. We could be doing so much more than we currently do. One of the biggest and best things to happen from the membership department was The amazing Larissa who has been lost to the eels. If you want to move forward get her back asap. She was a breath of fresh air, she interacted with members on here and im sure other forms of social media, she was available to talk answer questions and did a fantastic job promoting memberships and fixing problems for members as they arose. Memberships have been widely promoted as the funding model for the future and the most important part of the clubs growing business gets neglected. Look and the clubs that have massive membership bases in the last few years and its no coincidence that players want to play for those clubs and there becoming both successfull off the field and on the field. Take the Western Sydney Wanderers as an example. Put some much needed effort in to building that membership base, organise more social interaction, promote what's going on and im sure that in time we can take ourselves to top of the nrl tree. Imagine the amount of merchandise the wanderers move every year, no wonder there is a massive push to get a modern stadium out west for them full time. im sure if a 40k seat stadium is built out west it will be near full for nearly every game. I live on the gold coast and i have seen the titans from there entry into the competition until now. Micheal searle made some very stupid mistakes inregards to the fans on the gold coast, and now they wont go near the place, and the current administration is moving heaven and earth to get them back, by giving away tons off free memberships as well as chucking the kitchen sink in with the deal, and still there not going back. The moral of the story is look after the fans, make things attractive for them to become members, most people question buying memberships to a club when every game is buy one get one free. Get a decent website team and keep the information accurate and current simple things like the player injury reports were months old, player profiles were outdated and there no promotion whatsoever of nsw cup or lower grade footy. these guys are the future stars of the club. get fans invested in the kids and what's coming through we might then get to games to see the next star coming through the ranks at our great club. but for gods sake if your gonna do it get someone whose at the top of there game and do it right and keep it current. websites can be massive income earners and draw lots of potential fans, members sponsors etc to your business. get it right and the rewards will be endless We live breathe and sleep thinking about this great club. Dont treat us like garden gnomes, keep us informed, increase player interaction, make it members only so that you need to be a member to gain access to that part of the website, but in the end of the day we want to see the guys mucking about having fun, training hard, visiting schools and hospitals, doing the good things that get the club massive positive exposure. Make it someone that is super qualified in this area, and im sure that if you do the sponsorship and income drawing potential will be a follow on effect. Most importantly for gods sake no more fighting, negative media or bull****. we need to get a very different message out there about the professionalism of our club. it attracts sponsors, members fans and income streams, which are all good things for the club. You have made the big step of investing into the club, please ensure that that investment is in the areas that are critically lacking and that will grow our fantastic club for the future, because without the fans look at the gold coast, there a real potential chance of being relocated to Brisbane because no one on the coast gives two ****s about them anymore. Please listen to the fans because the next generation are taking note and are watching what's going on, i have 3 kids and we have 5 memberships in total, this generation on kids will be the ones we rely on in the coming years to teach there families what its like to support this great team. We now have the opportunity under a united board to move forward for the future. Go pillage and plunder Tony Abbots support while hes the pm and get the stadium upgrade for the future that we need and deserve. Get more Sunday home games for the club as our preferred time slot and fill that brookie hill. Everything is in place for the future just steer the club in the right direction and we will be the strongest club in sydney Just my opinion, would love to hear other fans ideas for the future.
