Not sure if this has alreasdy been answered but why, if are we aligned with East Perth, will we share facilities with Perth? Wouldn't aligning with a club that we share a training facility with make more sense?

This might be a little old school....

But it'd be great to have busses from the new stadium to the facility afterwards for members to have a drink and perhaps hear from the coach/players etc

Who knows, maybe we could even buy the players a gatorade or two

Makes sense that the two basket cases get the support. Add in the geographic tie, it is a no brainer
Who is this other basket case?
It appears that the EP alignment is here to stay unless there has been an official announcement released otherwise?

Peel and Perth

Neither have looked like making finals let alone a premiership.
Perth have some real leadership issues both in the football department and at the executive level.
Peel will get stronger with the alignment once the Dockers get more of their coaching staff in and around the club.

Just the *cough* small matter of a $35m funding shortfall.

Also, where's the supporters club? One with heavy beer that flows freely?
Freo got 10 mil for the Cockburn development, I'd imagine the state would match that.

There is this too:
The West Coast Eagles will make a financial contribution to these facilities, with the remaining funding anticipated to be sourced from the TOVP, Perth Football Club and both the State and Federal Government’s.

The alignment will not exist in 2018. In fact more than likely it will be gone by end of 2015.
The Eagles will have their own side in the WAFL to run their training drills.

A little inside knowledge I can share on this. Fremantle had a business plan that was well thought out and put forward well in discussions with the gov't. West Coast didn't follow suit... and got knocked back. They have been asked to re-develop their proposal.
