Hopefully he squeezes another higher end player out of the Skunkhouse but we all know Eddie will be all over it pulling swifty deals to keep them all.

He dominated in the GWS game but they still lost. Ruckman can be over rated.
Great move by the pies, hope it keeps them mediocre for the next 7 years

Greedy Bundy might have lost some friendship with Gordon The Joey and Marcy Door.

Hoping Colonwood winds up seriously constipated because of this deal. Not sure Moore should be touted as looking for the fat mega deal just yet, bloke can barely stay on the park as it is.

Now all we need is the umpires to crack down on his tactic of reaching around his opponent and grabbing their jumper just under the number and pulling down on it at ruck contests, and we will have a million dollar Rickman that can't win a tap out!

Grundy is a great player, they had to sign him for many years to hold on to him. This will cause them salary cap issues but you gotta sign these players or lose them.

We'll see if they can hold on to the rest with what is left for them to spend.

Watch for North to try once again to land a good player from another club, this time Collingwood.

For once I hope they succeed and I really hope it is Moore.

no one leaves to go to north.
Seriously you would rather play for $5, then go to north for 500k.
What a shitt club

There is an article in the herald Sun today:

'Can Collingwood call itself the biggest club?

It's firewalled so can't read what the verdict is.

From a financial perspective I reckon West Coast would be well ahead of everyone else?

Yeah it's financial.

Talks about their 3.87 million profit and 72 million revenue.

Also got off pokies and have 44.72 million in net assets, up from 32.69 in 2018 and no debt.

Watch the Pies offload some spud c-grader (Crisp, Hoskin-Elliott, Maynard, Phillips or Sier) for a first rounder like they did with Wellingham. Teams always overpay for a Pies player.

More than happy for them sux over the road to tie themselves in knots worrying about who has the biggest ****, while we just roll along winning flags!:)

Here are 2019 financials for the Melbourne based clubs, a pity Richmond don't disclose their Gate/Membership and Merchandise in $ terms so all in all just a bunch of rubbery figures but interesting all the same.

PS: Nth Melbourne too embarrassed to disclose theirs:D

Interesting read @caesar, thanks for posting.

Weird that we dropped a million in corporate support with the success we've had.
We were between premierships.

The fans/members stayed loyal.

Also, the corporate spend has diminished due to political spend in an election year plus prevailing economic conditions.

Geez, poor Melbourne and Carlton. Not getting much bang for their buck when spending on the footy department.
