saints and doggies financial chaos!

The game has grown to quick and clubs cant keep up!

the saints have announced a loss for this season that could be as high as 3 mil

the doggies are abt to announce a 2.8 mill loss

sheesh!

melbourne, geelong, doggies have told players there will be no pay rises for 2 years as they try to normqlise things,

richmond has started moving towards performance based contracts, carlton is to follow suit



things arent rosy even with the 70odd mill extra the AFL gets from TV monies

AFLPA members are to greedy , Club Heirachy are to greedy , too many coaches , bring back the reserves & more importantly bring the games back to the suburbs where the clubs wouldnt have to pay more BS price rents to the like of the MCC , AFL and other owners of major grounds !!!

Trust me Fellas !!

A breakaway league is around the corner.........The AFL has set standards for the clubs that just aint sustainable. Extension clubs can cope ,Freo even though 7 mill in debt will swallow that up and become the richest if WAFC sold the licence just an example, but in the real picture , the story is supportters want to see Freo play in Freo , Richmond play at Punt Rd , St Kilda @ Moorabin , Essendon @ WindyHill , etc etc etc...........The AFL has set standards on corporate boxes at grounds & if they arent met the club has to leave it. These old grounds were stadiums of fear, they added to the sharacter , the heirtage & history of the clubs. The Great Battes were on the grounds , the triumphs & sadly even the heartbreaks. If the AFL is reading , just for my Club , let us play 4 AFL games a year at Freo @ I'd guarantee it be a sell out before the season started !! 24,000 through the gates for non crowd pulling teams like the Kangas , the Bullies , The Cats & Port , Brissy or Sydney !!. Games like these in Freo save the Clubs rent at the bigger grounds , build the atmosphere meaning people enjoy it & wanna spend $$$ at the footy !!!
