So just back on the leagues club.
Do they have somewhere you can go and mingle a bit after the game and have a beer with the players??? Or
Do they all just go home???

Here's some pics taken last Friday of the nearly completed AFLW wing.

I'm not sure about the Saints Crest on the side of the building.....a bit of colour would look awesome.

I suspect it is the crest that was above the entrance to the Gerry Ryan High Performance Centre before the AFLW wing construction started.

I noticed driving down Linton St from the Nepean Hwy end,that a heap of Solar panels have been mounted on the roof of RSEA Park.....was always wondering if that would be done.

We do need to save some bucks in some area's.

I’d say the black and white crest is to make it look less “tacky” and therefore last longer.

In saying that, I think they went too far in the opposite direction, such that there’s nowhere near enough red in that shot.

I have bumped this because some people underestimate the value of our move back to Moorabbin and discount the efforts of those involved.

Specifically the Sack Finnis Faction.

I, on the other hand, argue that the relocation, the facilities, the alignment with key feeder leagues, the development of key partnerships, the branding opportunity, and the implementation of barriers that protect our core demographic has finally provided us with a business model that has set this club up for the next fifty years.

But it’s hard to convince people of this if they’ve not had the life experience to understand all these advantages, or if their long term vision doesn’t extend beyond next Saturday.

The former may change their mind, the latter less likely

So here is a practical example of what Moorabbin means, why it is important and why those who enabled the relocation need to be lauded.

I received an unsolicited email from one bayside business that is a Saints Bay2Business Premium Partner.

I will be buying their product.

The value that the Club has gained leveraging its supporter base, and the value gained by the Business from that supporter base is obvious.

Multiply this example by factor x and hopefully you understand how powerful and important Moorabbin is to our long term success.

Unless you belong to the Sack Finnis Faction......

Great post there sunny3193......absolutely nailed it IMO.

I was speaking a few weeks ago to the guy who runs the Bay2Business unit at RSEA.

Great guy.

He told me there 50 members of the group last year.....this year it's 75.

It's growing very nicely.

Has done great things for our football club & will set us up for the next 50 years like you said.

Without him we'd be stuck in Frankston.

But no point trying to change people's minds, if they can't see how solid a foundation we've built then that's on them!

Apart from all the extra $’s,
It’s all about developing a revenue stream that:
. is leveraging our support base,
. focuses on leveraging the club’s brand to that support base,
. expands the club’s brand value beyond that value simply derived from football (the brand is more than just a football club),
. reinforces that enhanced value to the support base,
In marketing and economic terms, this is a virtuous loop.
Or in English: it is the same principle that Coca Cola has used since whenever that allows Coke to be as well recognised as it is.

Remember we have something of value: a path to the Bayside demographic. That’s an 800k catchment.

Moorabbin is an integral part of this strategy.

(The most interesting thing about this company’s paperwork is that the St Kilda Bay2Business logo is prominent).

The frustrating thing was the idiot that send us to Seaford in the first place. Finnis has done some good and some not so good but the facility looks great and is definitely a huge upgrade on what we had. It's a change of mindset that being in a pro environment that should pay dividends one day. Most of us are just getting impatient

It appears that the grandstand/aquatic center is about to start being constructed.

My travels took me past RSEA this arvo and all the temp fencing around that area is now up.

Matt Finnis said back in mid May(when the plans went to Council for approval) that the goal was to get it completed for the start of the AFLW season.

It's going to be tight then.......and keep the fingers crossed for good weather.
