Well if they are "debt free" then you'd have to say they shouldn't need any AFL/other teams assistance. Is that happening?
So we’re cancelling all the return blockbusters and sharing time slots with an equal draw instead of a fixture?

Or are North (and others) still giving the rest of the comp assistance with those?

If the majority of clubs are receiving equalisation assistance from the AFL, why should we be excluded? We don't get the Friday night/ free to air games like other clubs get etc that the equalisation payments were brought in for.

This is an argument that gets raised repeatedly and it's complete bullsh1t.

Good on the club to get to the position we are in especially since where we have come from.

Even more impressive is that we've been able to do this without pokie revenue.

Its all in the AFL annual report if you can be bothered.

AFL Annual Reports - AFL.com.au
2021 is not up there yet, but having looked at 2020 data the following is what it says

From the above we can see North received the 5th most from AFL distributions - behind GWS, GC, Brisbane and St Kilda. This distribution list also doesn't factor in how much each club gave the AFL as well

Good on them, but what are the assets like?
They're in a better position than the saints, but now it's time for the next step, and without assets they'll struggle to build

It's impressive that West Coast with it's travel, AFLW costs etc is so low.
