I've been a supporter/member from day one. Membership interrupted by a stint in the country. Currently member for past 12 years. In the minority as I don't drink alcohol. Tired of having beer spilled over me as others push by to their seats and the alcohol fueled unruly behaviour ... on occasions. I opted for a seat in block 545 in the new Perth Stadium. Alcohol free and virtually under cover. I'm happy with the view and the also the other factors just mentioned. I received an email last week from Dockers Membership team advising that if I wanted to retain my seat next year it would no longer be an alcohol free area! I can shift to block 301 to be free of yobbos but not necessarily under cover and the aspect to view the
game doesn't appeal to me when compared with block 545. When I expressed my concern and sought an explanation for the change I was told "The decision to move the alcohol free section from Section 545 was due to their being a large bar at the back of that section. Not really the best environment for those wanting to sit in these types of sections."
What a load of bull. There are bars all around the concourse, so what ... I'll check out their proximity to 301 this Saturday. The "large bar" near 545 has NEVER been a problem this year. If a patron is carrying alcohol they are directed elsewhere, the alcohol free environment has been fine. So someone has dreamed up this furphy to benefit the drinkers not the non drinkers. Less staggering distance perhaps.
Anyway I will still support the Freo team through thick and thin (it's been thin for a while now) but I won't be renewing my membership on the basis they propose. They can't fill the Stadium as it is so tweaking the seating won't help. I may be the only disgruntled member because of this but as far as I'm concerned they can stick their membership. Because of the management off field performance and nothing to do with coach or team which I'll continue to support.

Someone told me their friend got a call from membership and told their seat was reviewed and the price is going up 200.00 bucks. 

Bad time to be doing seat reviews and causing people grief.

Absolutely it’s a bad time for the Club to play silly buggers with our seating.

Tee jay the area behind the Cheer Squad is the same price as the seats in Block 545. There is no alcohol allowed and no opposition supporters (which is also a good thing), It’s a great view as we’re right behind the goal posts.

Might be another area to think about.
