After the scary thought earlier in the year of massive financial losses for the Club.
Chris Fagan in the latest Roar Deal Podcast mentioned that there is a bit of chatter of the chance of seeing a small profit. 😯
Thanking Members for their support throughout the year.
Even if it is a small loss it is a ‘WIN’ for our great club. And will set us up for future success and hopefully a better bank balance in the not too distant future.

Being able to have crowds would have really helped. Would be some dire numbers for some Vic clubs

For the first time in the club's history, our list has officially surpassed the 25% mark of local (Queensland) players which I know from a few years ago at a Vic Draft function that they were hoping to achieve. The club would like that mark to be closer to 50%, but still it is a fair effort from years ago when you'd only have 4-5. We now have 12 - Andrews, Ballenden, Cameron, B. Coleman, K. Coleman, Fullarton, Hipwood, McFadyen, Michael, Payne, A. Smith and Zorko.

I am not clear however, if the Coleman's are to be counted as Territorians or Queenslanders. I went with the latter.

Our list make up is now:

Great work D12, it would be interesting to know how many of the Victorian boys are from the country.

By my count, 8 (J.Berry, T.Berry, McCluggage, Sharp, B.Smith and E.Smith) but that is including 2 from Geelong (Gardiner and Mathieson), which is debateable if you'd count Geelong as country. Well it sort of is as it isn't Victorian Metro.

Trust me, from someone who lives here, Geelong is Vic Country.

Hopefully within the next 10 years, our squad is 60% queenslander.

From a neutral perspective it's great to see Daniher moving well again. He's through unscathed and will play next week. I know for a fact that he didn't want to be at Essendon last year, he addressed the entire room at a dinner table saying that he'll "probably just hang up the boots" if he couldn't get out of Essendon in 2019. Once the Forward 50 chemistry gets right you'll kill it. Your midfield was dominated yesterday and yet Daniher still had a few opportunities. Your midfield will not get beaten often this year, so wait and see what it looks like when you win more ball.
