Give yourself one black mark and sit in the naughty corner for 30 minutes.


B h raises a good point. I have always been amazed that it hasn't stirred up a passionate debate in wafl circles. We have 8 clubs treading a thin financial lineand then you have $ubi fully loaded beyond belief. It's crazy.

Out of the 300K lost only 20K was spent on maintenance...its a BS line the CEO is trying to sell.

Revenue DROPPED by 130,000.00 IN ONE YEAR! we have HALF the members we have 1 year ago...

These are the COLD HARD FINANCIAL FACTS.

People are walking away in droves, in favour of the dockers - and the Host club domination will kill interest even more..WHERE ARE THE NEW SUPPORTERS COMING FROM SOUTHERNER????

YEp SPOT ON BAZZ ...WFT has gone on at the club the last few years...???

Unless we improve on the field members will continue to drop away in favour of the FFC...HUGE turn around needed during 2014 or will be just about wiped out in a years time financially...

WE ARE ON KNEES as it is... :sick: :sick: :sick:

Yes there's been costs blown out and I don't like the looks of the report in aspects ... staff payments , loss on transfer fees to previous year, one off costs hurt too

As for new members ????? there under the clubs noses around around Freo , our people have to go out and sign them up in other words do their job

I will get my wallet out this year and put something in by way of donation may even sign my pet up haha

Unfortunately for every club , belts will have to tighten we're one of them

I think the club will have to revisit the concert or entertainment on the ground idea and get some coin rolling

Think Kemp will come under the pump soon and probably Raitt too who knows

We need to win on the ground - sure, but that will not be enough long term, they might get a pick up in gate and memberships , but as you know its only ever a short term fix, we won a flag in 2009 and by 2013 half the fans have walked away.

BIG changes and hard decsions need to be made, some wont like it - but in a decades time the WAFL as we know it will not exists.

Hit the nail on the head .... the good times of the Dimmer era and those good players of that time are gone now and it affects attendance accordingly ... in conjunction with the co-tenants success too Baz

The club has identified local memberships and new memberships which is one positive but that needs to be followed up - again do their jobs

Sorry to say , but us members - we're going to have to pull out the wallet this year .... can always vote out the current heirachy if or when the time comes for it

Bottom line too is success is vital , must get somewhere soon there for sure baz

I will give you some insite on elections of the board.

At the last round of nominations for driectorships, one person nominated from outside, about two hours after putting in his nomination he received a mysterious phone call from the President advising him to withdraw his nomination as they did not want to hold elections , as one person had already been selected on the quiet.

The new comer felt pressured to withdraw and did so.

The place is being run under dubious circumstances.

Dead right Tiger Of Old but with a big $ubi man now on the WAFC board dont expect it to change until we finally get this new Burswood Stadium up and running!
Barney being a $ubi supporter know's full well they will be in the same boat financially as the rest of us once this gift of a financial windfall they have been handed on a platter from Subi Oval thanks to the WAFC ceases!

Memberships is what keeps clubs making money these days good old mums and dad's $300 per year and if that goes your fkd! Unfortunately for south those mums and dad's are buying Dockers memberships now. Sponsors pay for players, staff and maintenance etc. If you have good membership you'll make money simple as that. Except maybe for the ducks ;)

That's dead right mate, to lose that many members in one year was a shocker, You'd have to put it down to a couple of things, dockets success and Souths being crap, a lot send their renewals in late, to lose 40 k in one year in members subs is a disaster, you could see it around the club, there were a lot of people missing from previous years,,,and let's face it a lot of the oldies are not renewing due to old age or kicking the bucket,
