And Freos only win in Tassie was against your mob by a point. Freo has never been close to winning in tassie. Maybe a close loss to your mob in the previous year in 2005 and a narrow hawks loss.Yeah
Yeah it was madness buy rod butters president at the time in the two games we played in Launceston we were earning more then the other 9 home games at marvel put together there reason was we had a poor playing record in Launceston and were contending for finals was a crazy decision as st kilda naturaly has big following in Tasmania going back to the 1960 teams having a lot of locals in the team if we stuck it out I could have seen us having 15-20 thousand members in tas !
Amazing how most vic sides get pillaged in the Docklands deal, even if you get 30,000 a game. I dont know what the rent is and I can understand why the AFL wanted to buy out docklands.
On the other hand, you get money at tassie games regardless of how many people rock up. Mainly as previously said, the Tassie government are desperate to have AFL teams there, they would charge your mob $750,000 a game. Sure, you had a bad record there, but the extra 3 million made up for it. I mean if the Saints stuck with that Tassie deal, for 10 years, thats an extra 30 million for the saints.
Funny how in 2013, Geelong Hosted Freo in that 2013 Qualifying final. Cats make more money getting 35,000 at Geelong than getting 50,000 in docklands. Again, mainly due to Cheap rent.
I am Suprised Carlton dont stump up some cash to redevelop Princes Park and Bring up the capacity to 25-30,000 seats. I am sure Carlton fans are more than happy to play 2-3 games a year there against low drawing sides.
