Conditions attached to future funding

Maybe no forward payment on footy park or other funding

Set aside salary cap penalties for voting right

Hang on, haven’t we all been told that “the clubs own footy park” ? (Which should still be the home of football)
So how can that be taken away?

It seems almost every year something happens or is mentioned to happen that wants to dilute a good product that has well over 100 years of history behind it

I get more & more disillusioned & while I never ever thought I would, I can see the breaking point coming up quickly & I’ll end up just giving it away

That’s a great post Bayman (in terms of reality, scary in terms of what might happen because I have the exact same fears).

Sorry mate my poor writing skills have caused you concern

When i said footy park i was talking about the surrounding land that has been sold for housing development and money generated from that sale

Footy park oval is still there for many years as the crows have a lease/agree for them to use it and thier co-located headquarter.

However, were the crows to actually do what is being reported in the Advertiser and relocate at some time then in that instance i could see the oval being sold --- think crow move in near future unlikely due to very gound rent arrangement granted to them by SANFL

Sorry again mate

Bayman,

Your comment reference the clubs (8 original clubs) own Football Park has niggled at me all night as i think that two.

I also can remember that the SANFL board manages the Football Park grounds and facilities on behalf of these 8 clubs. This would include the SANFL managing the sale of surplus property as is now happenning.

Given this too me then all profits from said sales should be going to the 8 clubs with the SANFL keeping an agreed amount by the 8 clubs for funding of the overall game of football in South Australia.

However it seems that  this is happenning in reverse with the SANFL Is holding the money and they are determining how much they keep and how much is distribute to the clubs and also the SANFL is attaching conditions to the distribution of said club money.

Specificcally not suggesting any ilegality by the SANFL in any way as there probably is some agreement however is interesting to ponder.

Taking into consideration that the reasons for the clubs originally agreeing to increased powers to the SANFL have now dimished --- no longer own or responsible for crows or power, Football Park is significantly being wound down and when the Crows leave will be shut down and sold for example ---- perhaps it is time for the 8 clubs to take back control of the SANFL and ensure that it works for the BENEFITS of the 8 clubs rather than the betterment of the SANFL and the AFL interests.

The clubs have the power to do this if they work together LOL

To be brutally honest I have no faith or trust in the SANFL & haven’t had since Max & Leigh retired
