    Brendon Goddard has announced his 'retirement' from the AFL.

    On a similar note, I'd like to announce my retirement from trying to sleep with Kate Upton.

    Don't give up, you're only a cataclysmic event, leaving you as one of a handful of men left on earth, away from your shot.

    The empty space behind the Supreme Court would seem appropriate.

    I have no problem with Crows having a base in the city as long as it isn't a part of AO, let them swan around the city getting pampered with smoke blown up their ass as well as the players always being within a stones throw from Hindley St.. It's all positive.

    Crows are a cancer. They attached themselves to Footy Park back before it was the shithole it became rather than some vacant land elsewhere. Now they are looking to move in on AO after its well established.

    Just tumours waiting for the next thing to come along then suck the life out of it.

    This was the paper edition follow up on page 3 today. Headline is the paper one - online is different.

    Council may aid Crows' city bid
    A bid by the Adelaide Crows to build a new headquarters in the North Adelaide parklands could get the support of the Adelaide City Council, if the footy powerhouse takes on a particular site. While the Crows said there had not been a formal application or approach, city councillors were last night confidentially briefed on the situation. It came in the wake of The Advertiser yesterday revealing The Crows are considering shifting from their long-term West Lakes home to a location closer to Adelaide Oval — with the 1.6ha council Nursery site at War Memorial Drive’s eastern end among sites earmarked for a new multistorey headquarters, with associated offices, gym, indoor training facilities and clubrooms.

    Other potential sites include the Adelaide Aquatic Centre and a redeveloped Memorial Drive tennis complex. The Advertiser understands that, from the council’s perspective, the former is the preferred option, especially since the council loses significant money each year on the ailing centre. Councillor Anne Moran said it would be a wise decision, especially if the council could keep the facility open to the public in some way. “What we are going to have to face is that the Aquatic Centre is reaching the end of its life,” she said. The Advertiser understands that senior member of council administration share Cr Moran’s view about a preferred location — with the Nursery site considered off the table. If the Aquatic Centre site was chosen, the Crows would have the pick of four nearby ovals. Lord Mayor Sandy Verschoor said no concrete proposal had been brought to the council or herself............ Cr Robert Simms said the parklands “shouldn’t be commercialised in this way”. “I’m sick to death of private enterprise trying to sink their teeth into our parklands,” he said.
    https://www.adelaidenow.com.au/mess...s/news-story/09d93f4b28a2f66792d583d8d27fce00

    So why is a classic NIMBY in Anne Moran and others like her on the council supportive of the crows going to the aquatic centre??? $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$.

    The council has a huge maintenance cost with the Adelaide Aquatic Centre - ACC. With the big stuff moving down to Marion to the SA Aquatic Centre and all those serious training squads moving down there, the ACC has lost a huge revenue stream over the last 7 years as also state championships and schools championships are also no longer held there. And given the age, 50 next year - significant capital repairs aren't far away to maintain its quality and regulatory standards.

    Its losing between $400k and $500k a year which isn't that large given its a community asset, but it will probably get bigger as less learn to swim schools are attending plus the Marion Centre effect and capital repairs bill goes up. If they do sell it, or lease it to the crows, then they also get rid of a whole lot of staff off their books as well, which might be something else the council likes.

    The crows dont have the money to redevelop it compared to an easier build on a greenfield site and that's why their bullshit pre depreciation, pre $690k Adelaide Oval fee, pre $420k crows SANFL licence fee, etc profit, will bite them in the bum with their fans demanding it as "we are always making million dollar profits."

    Unless they get some of their wealthy supporters to become big benefactors - which hasn't happened for the crows yet. They might be prepared to go out and take a big loan and buy it/renovate it. They would get a few million for the building at West Lakes, but the key is they don't own the land it sits on, so they aren't getting the land appreciation $$, just selling a 9 year old depreciated building $$$.

    By "multi-storey" we mean you can have a maximum of two (2) levels, one of which must be below ground.

    Camp cancelled
    At this stage, the Crows don't have a pre-season camp planned. If they do, and return to the Gold Coast, it'll be far different to the disastrous camp from January this year that tested players in the mental space.

    Blows my mind that this idea can be green lit. Home teams will dress up as superheroes for the 2019 AFLW season.

    God forbid the ladies game does something to bring in money. They don’t have heritage to protect, they SHOULD be doing this.

    "The AFLW is a legitimate competition" they say as the make secret proposals to turn the players into marketing gimmicks.

    To be fair at least they've realised it was dumb.

    I thought the AFLW games were played at smaller venues like Princes Park and Western Oval. No such thing as a free lunch I suppose. Be interesting to see if the more povvo Docklands tenants get coerced into doing this in the AFL season - "It's Superhero Month at Marvel Stadium!!"


    Final comment goes to this person...
