The way I understand it DD is that VW wanted to run the Arena Joondalup the same way it runs Optus stadium with the same type of rent and about 14 security guards every game that WP recieved the bill every week for stuff that was totally unnecessary for a WAFL game.
Other WAFL clubs deal with their local council, WP have to deal with state government monster that are very hard to deal with.

Why it has taken so long? not sure but it wasn't from a lack of trying and i suppose the melt down of 2018 made them have a closer look at the situation and they then made the changes.

I can answer your last question BH, from the last AGM the club has paid back 50K of a 250K loan, I think it will be 50K a year until it is finished, the club has negotiated a lot better deal with Venues West so that it pays rent much closer to that of other clubs, the club has full control of the venue now so that it can make money from bar takings and food etc, something that was not available to them like other WAFL clubs.
The biggest creditor being Venues West has finally worked out that WAFL clubs don't have a high income stream and have come to the table.

The club is now run by West Perth people and not blow ins from other WAFL clubs that couldn't give a shit!


 

and to be fair that's about 8 to 10 years faster than Mandurah and no player payment scandals within cooee mate

Good to hear Joondy are paying their loan off at a pretty reasonable rate, unlike the Centrelink Oval Crabs who are too busy rorting the salary cap time and again and that's right under the nose of their AFL club masters.

I do have respect for the actual Joondy players and coaching staff who despite all the chaos of the past few years continue to produce on field.
