That's 10years away as a minimum. What do they expect to do in the meantime? West Lakes will be undergoing its final transformation into a nursing home well before then
Thats why he said “make other arrangements” for the sick women and children at the hospital so the AFC could get hold of it sooner.

The fact that he thinks the Crows have this type of power points to some serious level dementia kicking in.

Well with 80 members at their AGm they have an engaged membership that is entitled to everything. ...
Even Ambassador Wrinkles had a go at their poor AGM turnout in his weekly Camry Crows' Newsletter published in today's The Advertiser;

"It was a pathetic response. Only 10 per cent of members bothered to vote in a surprisingly competitive election contest (Nick Takos was elected) and less than 100 attended the Ian McLachlan Room to assail new chairman John Olsen and Matthew Nicks with their usual complaints - some valid, some trite."

our voting participation is similar however. Well it was 3 years ago, unsure of this year

The positioning that everything they do is ‘for the state’ is irritating.
They use that for literally everything.

There is plenty of private land they can buy and build on close to the city.
They just want freebies instead.
The team for all South Australians is drawing a bit thin these days. State jumper, not getting help from old Adelaide to move into the city ect. Probably time to take the hint, nobody like you.

Does anyone know if there's been a post or somewhere I can find a complete (or as close to) list of Magpies players and their playing numbers from over the years?

If only they were as ‘super rich’ as they claim to be they would already have moved.
The truth is they need to be back in with the SANFL so they have a backstop.
Years of spin that they have made big "operating profits" has come back to bite their current admin on the arse. I listen to their fans on sports talkback and most just assume they have the money to do what ever they want. They arent that rich. They are a middle 6 club when it comes to footy wealth

Sure they were a cash cow in the 1990's when they had a monopoly and the cost base of footy was a lot less than it is now, and people paid a premium for access to poor standard stadium, but those days are long gone.

Watching my first bit of live footy for the year.
Just saw the new rule cost the Hawks a goal. The Hawks player took a half step.....realised and stopped.....50 m and a goal.
Can see this rule costing teams a lot of soft goals this year.
