There's something seriously wrong if we are abandoning our stand alone VFL program. To say we are further resourced than North Melbourne is the understatement of the decade.

I doubt the fact RFC will can the 2s for funds.
if we align to another club then we can hire coaching staff for that purpose and attribute the cost to VFA, Without it being directly attributed to our soft cap. This could be a way that a full compliment of staff can be kept.

You're a sneaky bastard - said with the greatest respect. If we can increase our staffing by hooking up with Coburg then that makes great sense.

You must remember that your football costs are relatively fixed, as they are set by the League in terms of your hard and soft caps. So Aligned Leisure, pokies, 100,000 members etc is not an indicator of affordability or otherwise Re a VFL team.

Now for Groupie’s sake, imagine the 2019 Footy spend as set by the AFL was a Four n Twenty footy pie. Now, due to Covid, the hard and soft cap for 2021 will be the size of a party pie. Forget 2020 as it’s transitional.

Would Groupie swallow the party pie in a couple of bites with a dunk of sauce, or would he break it up into many crumbs and try and savour it?

It’s because Norf are heavily supported by AFL 💵 and the AFL don’t want this eastern seaboard comp to bomb imo.

He'd probably shove the pie up his ass.

Just saw the NMFC post surely there will be an official statement from the club... But I guess say nothing until they can legally have it ?

Caro reporting that we won't be able to afford to run our VFL program next year, I'm assuming because of the soft cap.

She it was unlikely we would be able to run it before we got the $100k fine, but now it's a definite no.

What happens here then? We'll have to align with a VFL team unfortunately. I remember the Coburg days, and they definitely weren't fun.

☹☹☹
