Article doesn't even mention cola. It's about league sending financial fixer to club to sought it out. That doesn't happen if everything is going swimminglyDoesnt read like more problems really. Its certainly not the funding or how much the club makes, its expenditure related, and the club isnt alone in the COLA stakes.
Lol did you actually read the article? It mentions the cost of living expenses in Sydney for players and coaches
So you didnt even read the article. get past the headline son.
According to sources familiar with conversations between the league and club, the main point of contention seems to be centred on the cost of living in Sydney and how the club continues to pay overs to its staff and players to stay.
Hahaha - read the article next time. ... and as it turned out, it was GWS that initiated the review in order to try and have their soft salary cap increased.
Sounds like they're propped up & now begging for more handouts.Hahaha - read the article next time. ... and as it turned out, it was GWS that initiated the review in order to try and have their soft salary cap increased.
The article also mentioned ... "The Giants have backing from a coterie group called M7, which includes about 25 American-based investors who support the Giants without seeking publicity....". They've got deep pockets apparently - hence they want the right to spend more.
Thanks to Pip for calling attention to this ... even though it ain't what he thought it was.
We know club exists only because of afl support & funding has taken 3 million dollar hit. Club posted 7 million in loses & now the league has sent this guy in to trouble shot with suggestion of discarded cola returning.You idiot.

Do we who these yanks are how much they contribute or could that just be a smokescreen for something?!
Your club exists for broadcasting rights to point competition was rigged to give draft picks & allowances to increase chances a Sydney team makes finals every year.Edit
Actually I will, 1 last time, try to have a civil conversation with you.
- Our club exist due to the tv deal and the growth in grassroots. This is fact.
- yep it’s a covid year last year. Swans posted 6mil.
- the talk was about spending and how we can improve it and put it to better use.
- Yes it is known who they are. 1 of them was appointed to our board.
- They actually want to buy the club.
Now can you discuss or should we go back to you ranting/trolling and me taking the piss?
So that’s a no on having civil discussion and you want to troll.Your club exists for broadcasting rights to point competition was rigged to give draft picks & allowances to increase chances a Sydney team makes finals every year.
There was no demand for a team from any local. Looking at crowds & ratings probably still isn't.
Grassroots in Western Sydney are next to nothing. Some competitions see teams travel half way across city for game.
You're team loses money most years from even bigger handouts from league. Team wouldn't exist without afl propping up.
Great, now tell me how much thses americans contribute?? Of course they want to buy as league entirely footing bill.
It appears Pip's paranoia and anxiety about the inexorable growth of our great Australian game in Sydney is growing to ever new levels - and with good reason. With 123 teams from 23 clubs playing across 7 senior men's divisions (and yes, the Premier Division teams can indeed travel halfway across the city so the best get to play against the best), 4 women's divisions, a Master's Division and 2 separate under 19 leagues (that's at last count - it's hard to keep up as the numbers just keeps increasing every year), it's now a long way more than "next to nothing" (it might've been true 20 years ago - far from it now). So I sympathise with poor Pip - if I was him, I'd be frightened too.... Grassroots in Western Sydney are next to nothing. Some competitions see teams travel half way across city for game. ...
22% of ppl don't follow aflNoobPie has provided details of a survey in Dr H. Fujak's new Book "Code Wars The Battle For Fans, Dollars, & Survival".
(This book provides the most comprehensive information, analysis, & considered future predictions on the 4 football codes ever published in Aust.)
NoobPie said, re the survey
"22% of Sydneysiders follow the AFL, compared to just 12% of Melburnians following the NRL.
8% of Sydneysiders follow the AFL, but not League, compared just 2% of Melburnians following League, but not AFL".
They also know how to recruit the right players too. finders talks about Islanders, well give me Ryan Papenhuyzen any day of the week first. What the f...?!www.bigfooty.com
It should be noted that, in about the last 10 years up to 2019, there was a net increase in migration into Vic. from NSW & Qld.
Hopefully, other BF contributors can obtain the book, a share their views here on the diverse, & very detailed, range of topics it covers- all very pertinent for the BF Industry Forum.
22% of ppl don't follow afl
Wait, whaaaat?So 32k watching each week is made up of a pool of a million different ppl?! That 22% number is nonsense
