In order to be profitable a venue needs to host a crowd of at least 22,000 - 18 times a year.Amazing yur team makes $600,000 from 20,000 people.
now kardinia park holds 40,000 seats
Carlton are gonna swing and miss with teague like your other 10 past coaches your deadset going backwards... terrible club that no one wants go to, apart from fringeys and has beens
Carlton and Geelong are absolute filth of clubs.
4. St Kilda (massive signings in the offseason and Ratts at the helm will help them jump up the ladder)
17. Carlton (terrible club wont improve at all and will go backwards)
I would say saints would be the best team to not win a premiership, pies had MCG home ground advantage though which was bulls**t
Bulls**t we do wonders for the AFL, we are one of the biggest clubs in the league when our juggernaut gets going as seen in 09 we can bring scary numbers for the AFL and even when we are down we play at the league owned stadium of the docklands so all the money is going in the AFLs pockets or ours. We are more beneficial for the league than any team that plays at a stadium not owned by the AFL
More Friday night games for my Saints please... find it bulls**t how we barely get any yet we are one of the bigger clubs in the league
There is no big 4 anymore, all clubs are contributing massively to the league except maybe suns and gws. The teams that play at marvel stadium such as saints and dogs are the backbone of the AFL as the stadium is owned by the league and all the profits go to the AFL.
Papley and Martin aren't even at the club yet and you are gonna pay overs for them to get the club. Martin could barely get a game at the suns... Butler coming to the Saints will have 10x the impact those players have.
middle of the road club, few decent pickups might scrape them in the 8 but they will never be a premiership team with this playing group... I see clubs like St Kilda as a club who ignores the draft for the next few years and really benefit from it with a top 4 finish next season
Geelong losing kelly with affect the club massively. I don't see them getting Steven as he is worth a 1st rounder at minimum. Not being able to pick up superstars like Steven after just losing Kelly will see the cats miss the 8.
The big 4 is made up bullshit marketing strategy Collingwood, Carlton, Essendon and Richmond use. Collingwood and tigers play at the G and use it as an indicator for big crowds yet most clubs are selling out games at smaller stadiums such as west coast, crows and saints... attendance is a bullshit indicator for a club. Essendon and Carlton are cheats and have no integrity the teams have been dying since the 90s/early 00s and will be merged or relocated in the next 20 years.
I think the AFL should stop giving out concessions to clubs like gold coast. Clubs like Saints never get concessions when they are having bad times because they are one of the biggest clubs in the league... its bullshit
lol from a dees fan, yeah i know carlton are a joke of a club but a bit rich coming from u melbourne are stinky poopoo
lol tigers wont travel to perth... they are the most favoured team in the comp. Their last two premierships have no integrity
I already made my ladder predictions before the trade period as top 4 contenders and I was laughed at but now that the trade rumours have come into fruition and with a new coach, I truely believe the saints are a top 4 side and potential 2020 Grand final winners.
What does everyone think?
hey im from the future dont bother watching the next 19 years... st kilda won all 19 premierships
why the fu** are carlton playing the first 3 thursday night games to start the season. THEY ARE TRASH and play an unwatchable brand of footy. Put them on sunday twighlight where they belong ffs. Boycotting those games so the AFL learns not to put terrible teams on thursday.
sorry guys, i got banned for that comment by that elmer fudd dude. I have learnt my lesson not to be mean and troll other clubs. Your club has played an integral part in creating our great game and have been involved in some iconic moments and games. If i could go back and not post that comment i would because it has been eating away at me all week and have had a few sleepless nights because of it. anyway best of luck in 2020 go saints
