That's fair.We were 2 games clear in 16th with 5 rounds left, playing at Waverley Park (after losing the last 8 games of ‘97 and first 4 of ‘98) but still had 28,000 members and turned a profit
That said, whilst I agree with Kennett I don’t feel comfortable with the president of my club commentating on the financial perils of others
There's a more moderate way of saying the same thing. If he said "clubs shouldn't be too big to fail. If a club ends up in the equivelant financial strife as Fitzroy in 1995 The afl should be prepared to make the big call like they did back then" then most would be more understanding.
