    Looking back BT I would definitely say early to late 60's. I was in my mid to late teens then so it really meant a lot to me then. The Royce Hart years were also very dismal in the early eighties. In his first 2 seasons I think we only won about 6 or 7 games. He only lasted 2 and a half years and there were some bad floggings in that last year. So those periods were bad. Today is a breeze.

    Re: BT's Membership Score - Compare

    If I were to count from when I started seriously following the footy then 2005 onwards for 8.21.

    If I'm doing it from when I picked 'Doggies' as my team and can remember games then it's (I think) 1997 onward for 7.96

    I do remember sitting in front of the TV in the Rhode years and very quickly losing interest and turning to the game boy instead.

    GG, sub 7. You've done some harder time and you're still so positive. Respect.
    80's were tough Actually all the way up to 97 really. Bugger I just reminded myself.

    8.21 - Lucky you! The Cheap as Chips years were just horrible, for players and fans. Although hearing about the late 60's and early 80's, we've had a few more really bad periods than I appreciated.

    Wow - loyalty personified. Even when we were terrible there was always something to cling onto. Doug Hawkins tearing up a wing, Peter Foster etc. Keeping Carlton to 0 goals until Mark Arceri (?) ruined it...always a silver lining.

    My lowest point, when I thought for a fleeting moment what the hell am I doing was in 2003 when Freo and Shaun McManus ripped us a new one at Docklands. Something like 80 points.

    Generally the longer you have followed us the ratio of lean times to success will be higher. For a team like Carlton this would be the exact opposite.

    I was barracking for the doggies before 1964 but it was 1964 when I first became a member.
    Total 1964-2018 = 328
    Years = 55
    Score 328/55 = 5.96

    Just out of interest does anyone have their old membership cards. I have a few, the earliest I think is 1983. Always recall entering the ground at the Barkly St end and the gate attendant who was missing a few digits (fascinating as a kid) used to click my card; if I asked nicely he would do the games I'd missed. I can post a photo if people are interested.

    Could be another thread don't want to derail this one it's great.

    By the way, my first jumper was a St Kilda one. Our sports shop didn't have any footscray one's.

    Looks like i dodged a bullet there.

    Re: BT's Membership Score - Compare

    Sorry guys but I haven't been suffering as much but somehow I am still feeling the pain for the past 2/3 years not seeing us in the finals after the success in 2016. I just can't imagine what you guys have to endure over so many many years. (probably that's why all of you are having great characters )

    So for me:
    - Paying member since 2009 84/10=8.4
    - Going to our games since 2004 but pay-as-u-go 117/15=7.8
