Yes we all know what happened back in the bad old 80's, the beginning of the AFL, right? And the fact that era was bourne thanks to the blood, sweat and tears of Western Australia. Not to mention the creation of a club that had to sell its soul to the VFL to bail out a bankrupt competition in the first place.

Nevertheless, here we are again. Two of the most powerful and profitable clubs in this pissant league will probably be asked to donate money again to a couple of suburban league clubs masquerading as proper organisations run by amateurs. And yet again, history repeats.

AFL, you're welcome.

We're a soulless franchise created by the afl. You need to come to terms with this fact

If it is such a pissant league and WCE is so powerful why doesn’t WCE bail out of the AFL and go its own way? Go on

Nope, WA needs to bail out the NSW clubs, maybe the QLD clubs if they are feeling generous. Stuff Victoria :)

Now that you mention it, a new wing on the Tullamarine Hangar would be nice...

Jimbo I think you are a bit confused here... Candidates for the other powerhouse profitable club - Collingwood/Richmond/Essendon aren’t located in WA :$

It just tells me that there aren’t a lot of brains in WA. I mean only an idiot would not only beg to join a football league that was broke but then gladly cough up a large financial penalty just to join said bankrupt league. If they had any smarts about them they would have started their own comp and pick off teams from the VFL’s rotting carcass. Now the OP wants WA to repeat their past mistakes 😳

There's roughly 2.5 million human brains. Not as many as in Victoria but you have chosen a weird metric to judge things on.

These are strange times, being bankrupt won't have the same meaning now as it did in the past. Expect deals to be made and leniency to be given across all industries.
