I don't read the Herald Sun.

To be perfectly honest though, I couldn't give a rats tossbag if we do leave Windy Hill.

On a day the club welcomed funding of $6 million from the Labor government in conjunction with the Australian Paralympic Committee (APC), it also conceded the options for relocation had increased.

At least there's some good news there. Not sure how much we were holding out for though.

@ Essendon Moderators: Are these stupid quotation rules still in effect? Coz I don't see it enforced on the Association Football board and usually not policed that stringently on the main board. One link + paragraph = all good?

I reckon we wanted more than $6m, probably even above $10m from the Feds.

Did you get a phone call from the EFC to purchase raffle tix at $200 a pop? Therein lies the crux of said raffle tix. I don't recall said raffle last year.

This pissy bowls club should have found a way to relocate somewhere local for the benifit of all.

I'm sure EFC at Windy Hill is more important to the local community than the bowls club (by about a million times).

I hope they go broke soon after we leave.
