    BT's Membership Score - Compare

    So I've devised a simple maths equation that can tell you how our great VFL/AFL team has fared since you specifically have been a member. I've gone back as far as 1950, sorry for anyone with skin in the game longer. Each season I've marked how far from the bottom spot on the ladder we finished. I've gone this way not out of negativity, but as the size of the ladders change over the years it made it harder to find a set number. So this is it. So if we finished 2 spots off the bottom, as in 1950, I've put in 2. So just identify the year followed/joined, tally up the points for those years. Divide that total by the number of years and you have an average 'membership score'. Here are the years:

    1950 - 2
    1951 - 8
    1952 - 2
    1953 - 9
    1954 - 11 (GF, Premiers)
    1955 - 7
    1956 - 8
    1957 - 6
    1958 - 1
    1959 - 0 (wooden spoon)
    1960 - 3
    1961 - 10 (grand final)
    1962 - 7
    1963 - 3
    1964 - 5
    1965 - 3
    1966 - 3
    1967 - 0 (wooden spoon)
    1968 - 3
    1969 - 2
    1970 - 5
    1971 - 4
    1972 - 5
    1973 - 3
    1974 - 7
    1975 - 5
    1976 - 7
    1977 - 5
    1978 - 1
    1979 - 3
    1980 - 2
    1981 - 1
    1982 - 0 (wooden spoon)
    1983 - 5
    1984 - 5
    1985 - 10
    1986 - 4
    1987 - 7
    1988 - 6
    1989 - 1
    1990 - 7
    1991 - 5
    1992 - 13
    1993 - 6
    1994 - 10
    1995 - 9
    1996 - 1
    1997 - 13
    1998 - 14
    1999 - 12
    2000 - 9
    2001 - 6
    2002 - 4
    2003 - 0 (wooden spoon)
    2004 - 2
    2005 - 7
    2006 - 8
    2007 - 3
    2008 - 13
    2009 - 13
    2010 - 12
    2011 - 7
    2012 - 3
    2013 - 3
    2014 - 4
    2015 - 12
    2016 - 17 (GF, Premiers)
    2017 - 8
    2018 - 5

    Simply tally the scores from the year you started following or were a member from (generally not before you were 5 years old). Then divide that number by the numbers of years.

    In my case, my points total 240. Years following is 32 > 240 points/32 years = 7.5

    So my membership score is 7.5 (including 1 X Grand Final, 1 X Premeirship, 1 X Wooden Spoon)

    I've got to say I'm pretty happy with 7.5. Plus only one spoon to GF/Premeirship ratio is better than comparable smaller Vic clubs over the journey.

    That also means we averaged 7.5 spots off the bottom of the ladder in my time. The higher your score, the better time you've had of it. For instance if you joined/followed from 2008, your membership score would be a whopping 9. Or if you followed Hawthorn in 13-15, a score of 17. The lower the score, well you guys and girls especially watching the 60's & 70's, there's always next year to make a dint in your membership score.

    So how do you and your time as part of the club rate on the membership score?

    GG, sub 7. You've done some harder time and you're still so positive. Respect.

    6.1 . Wow. How many clubs would have rock solid members like you at 6.1 over 58 years? A 'respect' to you too.

    The worst part was following the club in the 1960's (after 61). Didn't play in a final till 1974 - 12 years. Going to Primary school, then high school being one of a few Doggies supporters in the outer Western Suburbs (we moved at the end of 62) was really tough. I just couldn't see myself changing to another club. When I was 11 a kid did convince me to support South Melbourne - it lasted about 5 days - and I am ashamed of it

    However, we won a lot of games at home which made it palatable.

    Being called Carl I got home from school one day to find out that my 'laugh a minute' father had stuck a Carlton poster on my bedroom wall and could hardly wait to start to start getting stuck into me about it. "Hahaha, you have a Carlton posyer on your wall, Haha your name is Carl so you must barrack for Carlton" and so on with the very mature behavior. I said to him "but you were the one who picked the f%$#ing name in the first place! I didn't name myf$%#ingself, did I?" and turned on my heels and went to the toilet. By the time I get back the Carlton poster was gone and it was never mentioned again!!
    WOOF NUMBER 6

    One of our true supporters. That is what it means to be a supporter. Ted and Doug would have loved to watch those guys play. Braybrook Football Club had some very good players for us.
