Any pissant team who has not won a 3 Peat in the last 20 years should get the arse.

That leaves.

Hawks
Lions.

Since we tore them a newie last weekend I think we can all agree and declare The HFC, as Kings of the Universe.
We could expand this concept - teams who've won a Premiership this century get to remain while all the deadwood gets jettisoned.

Would we really missing having Carlton, GC, GWS, Melbourne, Norf, Adelaide & St.Kilda around?

Most people would understand to look at what's owing on their credit card before bragging about their bank balance, it's not that complicated
Whoโ€™s bragging though? Facts are facts, our club has money to burn while yours has the Lexus centre. Good luck keeping up with that. ๐Ÿ˜‚

Point stands, if we cured cancer you would still complain that we did not cure COVID-19. ๐Ÿ™„

You're an idiot though.

We had 21 million in liabilities at the end of 2019 - majority of that is unpaid annual and long service leave and the WAFC royalty.

Oh you want to talk facts?

Your assets include $29m for Lathlain Park - good luck burning that. You also have liabilities of around $29m. So the โ€œcashโ€ youโ€™re so proud of is more like $47m

Which is the same as Collingwood :oops:

OH SNAP

West Coast with revenue of ~$102 million, but their operating profit is only ~$8 million?

How much does ice cost over there?
We paid 4 million to WAFC to support WAFL and grassroots footy in the entire state of WA.

Meanwhile, Carlton has bailed on the Bullants at the first sign of financial trouble. The blue still remains in debt while heading in to the biggest financial crisis the modern game has ever confronted.

Worry about your own club, peasant.

Considering that no club will be in a position for new facilities in the next 10 years, moving to Lathlain when we did was in hindsight, perfect time.

Liabilities are 21 million and included the WAFC royalty, 12 million in regular creditors expenses which get paid in 30 days (just like normal monthly household bills) and about 5 million in accrued annual leave/long service.

Every person in the industry looks at our financial report, and the consensus is that West Coast is unrivalled in its financial position and is the biggest, most profitable of all the clubs.

You do realise that is exactly why you pissants were even created don't you? To provide funding for the real clubs, no-one outside your backwards state could give 2 shits about you lot, AFL just likes manufacturing flags for you every now and again so you don't realise your true purpose.

Yet you have, by your own words, โ€œ$45m in the bankโ€ and Collingwood has $47m...

The point about Lathlain is that you cannot liquidate that asset, in fact its value just took a huge hit

Wouldn't be surprised if the eagles franchise is discarded and a proper team takes its to represent WA.

West Perth perhaps

Thanks for the money but lads
