I agree it is not ideal and certainly they wouldn't have gotten the same level of concessions if they weren't an expansion club. Even Brisbane didn't get anything like the same concessions despite being in a similarly parlous state a few years back. Brisbane at least had a historyFair enough points on the Commission side.
i still think that the concessions this year were over the top and overly generous.
When they first entered they were given a decent start up package, compared to Fremantle,Port Adelaide and Adelaide in their start up years in the AFL era. compare them to Fremantle who was also poor, when they first started, the original start up packages should have been enough to have sustained them. The appearance of these latest concessions is because it is not in an AFL heartland.
