The AFL had to ensure a certain number of games were played at Etihad every year. (I believe this deal has ended now meaning it shouldn’t be an issue). With Etihad tenants ie. North, Dogs etc. selling home games to other cities, it meant other teams had to play home games there to meet that agreement. Unfortunately in our case we had to make up 2 games a year there and lose money for it, simply because other teams sell home games elsewhere to make a profit.
