  1. In theory, this sort of contract strategy should be the norm in the coming years. Longer contracts enable clubs to know exactly how much cap they have to play with over a 5 to 10 year period. With more players on these contracts, it will give clubs the flexibility to build a surplus to attract FAs and guns.
  2. I'd make it 10 mate. In a heartbeat as you say.
  3. Governments will transition sectors if it means the economy will be positively impacted. In the MFC's case, we're not talking about an economy. We're talking about a business. Whether it was the right move to exit the pokies, probably only time will tell. I don't think we could say one way or the other at this stage. What I think we can safely say though is that the CEO and the COO did not predict such a drastic onfield decline and this has impacted on the financial bottom line. There's not a lot that can be done to the financials if the onfield team is puss.
  4. Mining as we've seen it is unsustainable and as technology grows, synthetic solutions will become more widely available or in some cases uncalled for. It's only a matter of time. Goldman Sachs have just started drilling the nail in that coffin.
  5. I don't think we could have predicted an onfield fall from grace quite as dramatic as the 2019 season proved. Therefore, any moderate financial projections saw us breaking even or posting a meagre profit. Instead, an onfield disaster, which is clearly unsustainable and needs to be righted immediately in 2020. Across the business world, businesses are moving towards sustainable revenue practices/streams and often this coincides with ethical wins that can be spun as PR and positive brand positioning in the marketplace. It doesn't matter where I or the MFC stand politically on the pokies, it's a dying business, just like mining and it will eventually go the way of the dodo. Have we moved out of the pokies 5 years too early? I'm not sure. Don't we still have this as revenue stream until 2021? I can understand us waiting to exploit it for the next few years, but equally, those clubs signing 20 year deals are tying their wagons to an industry that will eventually see itself legislated into oblivion. Diversifying the revenue streams at this point is a good strategic move, now we just need our [censored] football team to win some games and things will turn.
  6. That is a ridiculous video. Just provide the bloody numbers, you weirdos.
  7. There's a grammatical irony in this post, OD.
  8. He's a rookie. He's depth. If we are injury ravaged, he can inconsistently play a role. You can't smash it with every rookie pick. I wasn't a fan initially, but it makes enough sense for 2020.
  9. If that's the case, I wonder who we were after at 3. I'd hazard a guess that it was Young, but we cooled on him for whatever reason. Probably because Young could be seen as a bigger risk than Jackson.
  10. Personally, I think they've got it wrong. Petty should play back and Smith should play forward, but what would I know?
  11. I like your 22 here, mate, but I'd have Vandenberg ahead of Jones on the bench. I reckon this will happen across the season naturally and by the end of it, if we're playing well, I doubt Jones is in the 22.
  12. Leaves 17 open for Bennell. 👌
  13. You're right. I get more excited by mids or KPFs than I do by anyone else. Incidentally, I'm intrigued by Rivers for his potential of rolling through the midfield.
  14. No chance we could get the title of the thread correctly written is there? It's triggering my OCD.
  15. Sometimes, but Richmond's predictability hasn't hurt them, nor did Hawthorn's.
