The Mongrel Punt is creating AFL related content
55
patrons
Back in late 2017 we started up The Mongrel Punt. We grew a sizable following in 2018, and in 2019 we are hoping to start funding The Mongrel properly, so we can review more games and create more content throughout the year. It'd also be really nice to pay our regular writers something.

After a horrible experiment with Google-ads, we decided that we want to keep the site ad free. And if we can make this work, we also want to keep the site free for our readers.

So if the site will remain free, what will you get here?

Good question.

You'll get additional articles unique to Patreon. additional articles that are more free-form and niche. The Mongrel will be throwing to you for your opinion. When we need people to survey on matters in footy, you'll be the ones we come to. Every group, team or business has an inner circle of those you trust - this is our invitation to you to join our circle at The Mongrel Punt.

We want our supporters to have the ability to guide our direction and tell us when our ideas are dumb or when we absolutely MUST review a game or follow up a story. we want to give supporters the chance to feed into articles, to guide the way we cover the sport we love, and to be in with us on the ground floor.

We like having a community. We're almost always online chatting footy and keeping tabs on things. But we're going to need more support and creative thinking to keep afloat.

Keep us up and keep us going.

Mongrel supporters
$2.50 or more per month

Extra short form content! You like what we do, and you'd like to support us.

Annoyingly, this is $2.50 in USD, so conversion and transaction fees will happen. Think of it as $3.50 Australian per month. Kind of like buying The Mongrel three chicken mcnuggets a month.

Includes Discord rewards
Mongrel squad
$4.50 or more per month

All extra content, short form AND long form. This gets us a step closer to full game coverage.

This is $4.50 in USD, so conversion and transaction fees will happen.  Close to $6.50 per month in dollarydoos.

Includes Discord rewards
Mongrel Inner Circle
$10 or more per month

All extra content, plus, once we are in a position to grow, you'll have the option to shape our general direction. Do you want a podcast? Do you want us to have a chat function? Do you want to have your say on the fortnightly player power rankings and help us establish what will be a signature column of the site? This is for you.


This is $10 in USD, so conversion and transaction fees will happen.  Close to $14 in AUD, $3.50 a week.

Includes Discord rewards
Train the Mongrel
$20 or more per month

All extra content. Input into our general direction. Input into specific content creation.

This is $20 in USD, so conversion and transaction fees will happen. Roughly $28 in local cash monies. Almost a dollar a day. Not bad really. I reckon HB could be convinced to do a lot for this amount.

Includes Discord rewards
Mongrel coaching box
$40 or more per month

All extra content. Directly shape our content plan. Literally enjoy the horrors of being HB's coach. At least one live text chat during a game with HB (at the moment this excludes final series because he says he really wants to concentrate, apparently).


This is $40 in USD, so conversion and transaction fees will happen.  You're looking at roughly $56 AUD. 

Includes Discord rewards
Hey boss.
$80 or more per month

Far out.

Everything. You get everything. You're keeping our lights on and the tv going.

Pick one from the following:


A one on one beer and burger in Melbourne with HB.

Watch a game from a pub with HB.


I don't know. I have no clue what you might want. I'm just offering up HB's time like I'm a terrible middle-manager and he is my intern.


Please note, this is $80 in USD, so conversion and transaction fees will happen.  Why $80? Because we originally had it as $100 then did a conversion and thought 'nah'. The rough AUD amount is $112. 

Includes Discord rewards
What do you want?
$500 or more per month

This is kind of pie in the sky stuff, but honestly, we need a couple of patrons at this level. We're hoping that some of you are doing well enough to become like the patrons of old.


HB will take you to a game in Melbourne, or will watch a game with you and your mates in Melbourne.

HB will write a footy article on a topic of your choice.

HB will gladly take pot-shots at your friends in a review of your choice (old Joe will get some respite).

HB will just sit down with you and talk footy.


You'll also get listed as a patron of The Mongrel Punt in any e-books published during your patronage, and we'll do a top-tier supporters page. You can also fly under the radar if you like, though Mrs Mongrel will probably want to send you a Christmas card.
