Thread: Swans Media Department off season output

  1. #1

    Swans Media Department off season output

    Just looking at AFL.com.au and in the last four weeks we've had a riveting piece to introduce our new President followed by a few puff pieces with Davo running around looking like Andy Serkis and Davo kicking a goal from the carpark. Latest article was meet Josh Francou on the 23rd of December

    I took a look at other club pages and they typically have published a couple of articles since Christmas about players, rehab etc, generally at least once since post New Year. I tried looking back at what fans got last year, but can't access any articles, but this year SEEMS like less.

    Granted there is not much going on at the club at this time of year, but surely there are topics to keep club supporters engaged. Seems pretty inadequate to me.

    P.S. thanks for posting the training photos Jeffers - has kept me going.

    Not hard for them to have articles prepared and then released every few days. The media dept for the Swans needs to pull their finger out.

    I wonder if correlation causation in this instance? Media dept. at Swans shuts down and tumbleweeds start blowing through RWO.

    Or perhaps the other way around?

    A few years ago they really started pushing articles. I have noticed in the past 12 months there are not as many as the year before.

    Maybe the media budget has been slashed?

    It's all Lances fault for being paid so much.

    More and more businesses seem to have closed for the 2 x weeks over Xmas/NY. Expect more from tomorrow onwards. I haven't felt like I've been missing anything - cricket and American Football has been keeping me going....

    Hah! My comment may be harsh but the media dept is one of the primary connections between the members/supporters and the club. We have games to go to and media to consume. The players put on a show, the media department should engage us as much as possible outside of that. If anything, the pendulum should be the other way and fans should be saying "OMG there's too much content" before we say there's not enough.

    Didn't they filter player pieces throughout the off season last year? Individual pieces where players spoke about the year that passed, what they'd work on for next season and what their plans are for the off season? That would have been a good 38 pieces. Release one every second day and VOILA engagement for almost 3 months. Do one with each of the coaches as well and you'd have the whole off-season covered.
