    Review Preseason hit out against Dons and Review

    For example, you can grab your opponent until the umpire thinks your eyes have left the ball, at which point he'll call you for holding.

    I almost got caught out by this, but noticed an astrix about the 10 monthly payments starting in November and so the first payment would cover November-March. Instead I opted for the six month in-season option which runes March-August to smooth out the payments.

    If the richmond game sells out (likely) they can designate the GA section as ticketed at a later date. The GA section won't be sold as reserved seats before then, just general GA allocation.

    Rumour AFL to buy / take control of regional AFL venue.

    AFL needs a ~30k stadium in Melbourne for AFLW, VFL and smaller drawings AFL games. Gosch's Paddock is the perfect spot. No point playing regional or outer suburbs unless the team is located there (like Geelong) rather than FIFO.

    GMHBA Stadium (Kardinia Park, Geelong)

    It's colour coded to each stand (open/undercover) which have different rates for members reserved seats, and I assume for bought tickets too.

    Sat in the brewongle stand which you never see on the TV. Like 60 seat wide bays and packed in tighter than the hickey stand somehow. Strange.

    Third Stadium in Melbourne

    Only viable with an expansion in the number of home and away games. Thats a pretty big if. Under the current 22 game structure its not viable. Not sure. Its very murky…

    Third Stadium in Melbourne

    Marvel stadium collects all revenue on behalf of the clubs and distributes any profits. The clubs don’t receive ticket sales directly (outside of memberships)

    Third Stadium in Melbourne

    If you read my full reply, you will see that a third stadium only stacks financially if more games are introduced into the market. Under the current 22 game season it would not. Therefore games would not be shifted away per se. The issues with Marvel having such a high cost base are structural...

    Third Stadium in Melbourne

    Both City stadiums are massive and expensive to run. Both have a breakeven crowd in the range of 30k to 40k (the fact that Marvel is the same is half the problem). The 9 Melbourne clubs need to move away from a home ground model to a crowd demand model. The two stadiums hosting 4-5 games a week...

    Third Stadium in Melbourne

    The ideal spot was E-Gate, right next to North Melbourne station. But they built the west gate tunnel above ground through that area so the location is no good anymore. There was an idea floating around of Gosch's paddock. With an oval running ENE to WSW (ie East-West but tilted clockwise by...

    News GMHBA Stadium Stage 5 Redevelopment

    The roof is very necessary. It's to allow the stadium to have a cricket comms box inline with the wicket without taking away more seats (so sits above).

    News GMHBA Stadium Stage 5 Redevelopment

    1. Because they only had the funding to rebuild one stand. There wasnt the money for a full new build. See the quotes above from Cook. It was a bare bones project designed to save KP from the same fate as PP, Whitten Oval etc. 2. Hickey stand looks into the sun. Cameras would never go on that...

    News GMHBA Stadium Stage 5 Redevelopment

    100% what would basically need to happen to make it work. Think the Gov/Trust would need to buy out the shops facing the stand between Foster and Lonsdale to open it up (shops/restaurants could be relocated into the exterior of the stadium facing outwards as a compromise). A bored tunnel would...

    Expansion IS IT TIME FOR TWO DIVISIONS ??

    Same income?nah ofc not. But the AFL would need to fund the clubs from TV money to ensure the salary cap is the same across both divs

    Expansion IS IT TIME FOR TWO DIVISIONS ??

    No it wouldn't. If having two divisions puts us into restraint of trade, how does the draft stopping kids from going to the club of their choice not count as restraint of trade. The idea behind the divisions is that all things operation between the two would be equal. Salary cap, player wages...

    Docklands Stadium (Marvel Stadium) - Discussion

    There is some stabling still east of La trobe st, however the main workshops are west and the majority of stabling now occurs in the out regions (Geelong, Wyndham Vale, Melton etc) because they need the sets to run into Melbourne in the morning peak.
