We have to try to sell something that is for the public good to get the government involved. Richmond has the multi cultural centre there. My question is What could we offer on that land that would cover that reason...that isnt offered at the pies or the tiges?

Snake Milkshake has a ring to it....

Snake Milkshake? 

Sounds like the kind of thing Uncle Bitter would force the unsuspecting victims who live in his Wolf Creek style dungeon to do on a bad day.

With the use of Bro, probably 'Hunt for the Wilderpeople' (he could find some on here) or like a lot of posters on here 'Once we were Warriors'

Seems that in the short term Tigers made an extra $5 Million from their premiership through sale of memorabilia etc.

Of course there should be more to come in increased sponsorship and memberships.

In a way I am surprised that for a club as big as Richmond it is so little. Nice to have but it demonstrates that continued success is vital.

For the Guernsey clash people there is this little gem:

"Ironically, the canary-yellow clash strip Richmond donned in the Grand Final against Adelaide, amid heavy criticism from the likes of club legend Kevin Bartlett, has sold out and more will be available in November."

Have you tried the live beating snake heart liqueur in Vietnam? I didn't.

Not for the feint hearted!

Psychologists & Psychiatrist services - we would make a killing out of Demonland alone.

Tigers are actually orange, black and white - don't tell Richmond fans though

If it's a soulless place for the scum, I'm confused as to how it would be perfect for us.

I meant that for the pies it has no emotional connection. Certainly not in the way Vic does. Since we moved from the g we have had no home base and even then there was no social club attached.

Olympic park would give us the chance for home for the first time in decades and whilst it might take time we could give the place a demon soul. And as i say its proximity to the g means the place has more spiritual attachment for us than the pies.

My favourite bit of PJs comments was when he said that Jack Watts will always be a Melbourne person. It may not have been intended, but it was as if he was telling Port Adelaide that they'd contracted a mercenary who will never fully commit to his new club. 

Gee you really got that wrong LDC. Unfair to Jack and a very inaccurate interpretation of what PJ meant.

First of all, how is Jack a mercenary?  He didn't leave for more money. You know why he left so why disparage the guy with a comment like that?

Secondly, PJ was simply saying that Jack was a great guy, who was loved at Melbourne and who loved Melbourne. After his time at Port was up he believed that Jack would consider himself a Melbourne man and get involved with the club. PJ also said that he was going to catch up with Jack when he was back in Melb soon.

More specifically with our plans this draft to take 4 picks where we started with 10, 27, 45, 63, 81

After compensation picks ...

Watts pick in 31, Balic pick out 66 ...

Trade 2nd rounder: 10, 31, 47, 84
Trade 1st rounder and get Crows 2nd back: 29, 31, 36, 47

It's actually 10 + 84 vs 29 + 36

Do you really understand this or are you just making it up?

It is actually almost the same deal as giving up a first and second round pick outright. 

It also keeps us very much in the game come Draft time. Those 3 picks between 29 and 36, plus another that comes 10 picks later, could be more than handy.

Xarron, I think you've misinterpreted what I intended to say. Nevertheless, let me make clear I don't believe Jack's a mercenary and I certainly didn't intend to disparage him in any way. I was trying instead to foment some inter-club rivalry. Obviously I failed.

Back to the Jake gags - me and a mate went without fail at everygame:

Question: Why is Peter Walsh called “whopper”.

Answer: Because horse, hose and snake are already taken.

Didn’t Footscray make an extra $2m from their premiership merch etc.?

If Tigers did double that then it’s pretty impressive

I don't know how much WB made, but they certainly started selling out membership packages where they hadn't done so before.

They also started pouring money into marketing initiatives in an attempt to make hay while the sun was shining, but then fell down the ladder. Oops.

I was shown round our training facilities about 4 years ago and was quite impressed. [...]  However my guide being employed by the club would only speak in positive terms about the facility.

I was happy to hear  that it was being addressed at board level and will be super happy when / if we finally cross that threshold!!!

I'll believe it when I see it. I went to a function way back when Stynes was Prez, and he was talking about the need for a long-term base because AAMI was inadequate. This may have even been before we signed up for the facility we're in now! Either way, it was pretty clear the Club knew they needed better than what they were getting.

Way overs. You could probably secure Jake King for around 20 large.

Interesting about the new HQ.

Docklands is out of the question too much a green field site.

Stake Holders ie Council and State Government has a big say in what is available.

PJ said they are looking for a CBD site close to The "G"

Now unless it is The "G" or a redeevlopment of Yarra Park to incorporate a new training, Gym and Social facility, I cant think of any CBD site close to the "G" that could handle it

I’ve often wondered about Fawkner Park?

I suppose the point I was trying to make is that given the annual turnover of the big clubs a premiership is nice from a cash viewpoint but not a panacea. Rather you need sustained success and several premierships such as Hawthorn have delivered.

Will be interested to see how Geelong's stadium deal goes from a financial viewpoint. They have a "clean" stadium so they get all the ground advertising but of course they have only about 8 games at the stadium.
