Teams: Portugal NT ,Maritimo & Fremantle Dockers
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 !!!
