Just GAGF Gold Coast Suns. More assistance? ******* s**t stain on the AFL.. you want more draft picks?? You can’t develop and or keep all the high picks you have had in the past.

If the AFL really want to run themselves like a business - and they seem to want to - then you'd write off the sunk costs of the McGold Coast experiment and walk away.

Starbucks dramatically pulled back their involvement in Australia when they realised no one gave a **** about them. Considering Starbucks are probably the blueprint Gillan follows for a successful league maybe he can follow their lead about knowing "when to fold".

Einstein once said “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results.”, they failed with the Carrara Bears and the suns are following that.

Trouble is everyone else is bankrolling this corporate wank. Including clubs like us being consigned to s**t fixtures and heavy travel arrangements to enable the league to maximise 'big 4' club commercial exposure.
