But I thought it was all about heart and soul and being around for 150 years in the VFL that make's a club great? Actually it turns out you need to know how to run a business. Who'd have thought?
We're a proud club. I know the mob south of the river will talk as if we were the golden child given everything, but honestly culture plays a role. We have a culture of performing well, demanding success (let's forget the early 00s haha), and despite accusations or stereotypes, we have a pretty diehard group of supporters too. I mean, just think of those people who drove across the Nullabor in the 90s for the granny who hadn't even secured tickets yet lol.Well run clubs with positive balance sheets and good employees win flags.
