I’m not sure it would be a bad thing if the AFL did step in?You are getting to emotional here OF.
Not only have the rules changed re PP's but what you are saying above is what I am saying will be the case for us - but at a much reduced level.
Melbourne got told what to do by the AFL - the AFL basically had to step in to run the club to ensure they got their house in order.
That wil be the case as well for us (though by no where near as much as Melbourne) IF we were choose to apply for on field assistance.
There is zero chance the AFL are writing a meaningful blank cheque to us - it will come with conditions as it should.
The current crop aren’t exactly filling us with confidence that they know how to run a successful club.
