    I like going to watch the baseball, even after the idiot Norwood residents had it moved.

    Good news story after another bad loss

    It's called alternative revenue, in theory it helps fund said department.

    Hmm this is interesting. This is baseball, which is obviously not football. So I assume it's completely outside the football department spending soft cap. Does this mean that we could, in theory, scour the world to find the absolute best fitness and conditioning staff and throw a mountain of cash to get them down here? We will have the fittest baseball team in the league by a long way. If those guys just happened to have a coffee and a chat with our football guys here and there, well, that's just a natural part of working under the same roof...?

    Probably a good move to concentrate on a different sport as we aren’t very good at football at the moment.

    Except for the fact there’s now a soft cap. Which tells me we massively overpayed some of our assistant coaches.

    Hope the club can convince the SA government to get a MLB game at Adelaide Oval.

    Yes, the business half of the club has to be out trying to maximise the amount of money the football department has to spend no matter how good or bad we are on the field at the time, it's the only interaction the two halves of the football club really have.

    Or they can pay for an ALB game in India...it's not the profit that's important, but the off field opportunities are amazing
