Its coming up soon, so time for a new thread.

Most clubs will report between mid november and the end of the year. AFL reports will come out some time in March.

As always Im grateful to everyone here on Bigfooty and on my twitter feed who has had meaningful contributions in these threads over the last few years. Folks like RussellEbertHandball, Prince Imperial, dave10, Rob have been invaluable with their input over the years, others have assisted with obtaining annual reports in the early years, and still others have assisted with constructive criticism and great questions, particularly Kwality lol

This has always been a colloborative effort. If you see something that is incorrect, please let me know so I can fix it.

Looking forward to the ‘other’ footy season to commence. Separately, 2022 membership season starts again soon with many club auto renewals kicking in during October.

Another covid year, interesting to see the financials. With soft cap spending ~$3.5M down on two years ago, and some attendances in the first half of the year, I expect improved operating performances overall than last year. Let’s see…

I’m interested to know the latest status on the redevelopment of Marvel Stadium? At least from afar it appears covid has possibly stalled progress. We haven’t heardmuch in terms of genuine detail around the scope detail of what’s being done other than fairly top line outside drawings and figures at an overall level. Very little in terms of specifics around what’s actually being done inside the venue, drawings of the finished product etc.

Essendon has a contract for 7 home games which expires end of 2024. I’m sure Essendon will be thinking long and hard about it’s future at the venue beyond 2024 with a significant pull to play at least 1-2 more of its games at the larger stadium across town. I’m sure the inducements from the AFL will come to retain as much Bomber content at Marvel as possible, however majority of its fans prefer the MCG and growing its fanbase would more easier with space to grow down the road. Ditto Carlton.

The redevelopment in this respect is critical. It needs to become much more attractive to fans and show a genuine step change in moving into the future. Optus Stadium has made the joint very old, very very quickly. Maybe this fact has meant the league is making further changes on the run to ensure it simply isn’t playing catch up?

Having said all this, I’m certainly wondering why we have only seen minimal specific detail around what’s taking place, eventually at Marvel.

Work has apparently started. The AFL has appointed John Holland to do the work, annunced it May to begin at seasons end.
