With the likelihood of department cuts. What areas do you see being phased out?
Do we need to trainers to massage players on game day? 2 strategists?
Interesting to note on Footy Classified Ross Lyon mentioned how many personell were in a footy department and game day nowadays then back in 2007. He mentioned how it was your IT technician, senior assistant, midfield, forward and Defensive coach back in 2007
Now you had 2 midfield coaches, 2 physio trainers, 1IT guy, 2 senior assistants, club doctor, Ruck coach, forward and defensive coach, 1 tactician coach.
He also mentioned how it got to a stage where the senior head coach didnt even run training sessions.
Would be interesting to see how many we have and where we will see the cuts come.
The existing broadcast rights agreement saw Channel Seven, Foxtel and Telstra fork out a huge $2.5 billion – or $418 million per year – in 2015, for the rights from 2017-2022. The current financial health of the AFL will no doubt play a role when CEO Gil McLachlan and his team begin negotiating the next deal .
Cry me a f*cking river AFL.
It’s time to pay the wages of your industry… or f*ck off.
Yep - all the AFL’s pet projects are absolute money pits. GC & GWS would be draining the AFL dry, they would be generating bugger all in terms of memberships, sponsorship & gate receipts plus they add stuff all to the TV audience sp you couldn’t even argue they represent value there. All up these clubs would have around $30M each in salaries not to mention every other expense most of which would be payed by the AFL.
This is a company that made nearly $5 Billion In the last 10 years just from TV broadcasting rights.
There is absolutely no reason why they shouldn’t be stepping in to stop AFL club employees being let go.
