    Re: Victoria University Whitten Oval Precinct Development

    Do we still get the equalisation fund money off the AFL?
    Or is it the fact that the AFL now owns Etihad we are getting our rightful earnings from the attendance ?
    To be honest I thought we had got rid of our pokies about 5 years ago.
    Read an article in my local about the bombers trying to lease Melton country club another 21 years but the council is under pressure to stop as the country club has taken 9million out of the residents this year.
    I was also in the belief that all clubs were supposed to abandon the pokies as revenue ( thought the AFL had made some sort of rule).

    Carlton would have to close down as a football club without pokies revenue.

    Is the scoreboard going to be able to show replays or is it just a scoreboard?

    After speaking to Obie for about fourty-five minutes on the telephone we
    Finally arrived at the truth of the matter and said that we had to go down
    And pick up the garbage, and also had to go down and speak to him at the
    Police officer's station. So we got in the red vw microbus with the
    Shovels and rakes and implements of destruction and headed on toward the
    Police officer's station.
    Now friends, there was only one or two things that Obie coulda done at
    The police station, and the first was he could have given us a medal for
    Being so brave and honest on the telephone, which wasn't very likely, and
    We didn't expect it, and the other thing was he could have bawled us out
    And told us never to be seen driving garbage around the vicinity again,
    Which is what we expected, but when we got to the police officer's station
    There was a third possibility that we hadn't even counted upon, and we was
    Both immediately arrested. Handcuffed.
    And I said "Obie, I don't think I can pick up the garbage with these handcuffs on. "
    "He said, "Shut up, kid. Get in the back of the patrol car. "

    At the Geelong Road end I believe. Much needed that’s for sure with the AFLW and VFL there and the odd AFL match in the future.

    Looks huge!
    Our 1954 premiership players are our heroes, and it has to be said that Charlie was their hero.

    Next step is to increase the capacity to somewhere around 15k to 20k according to PG

    Future AFL games 1 or 2 per year very possible if we get the capacity up. Has the lighting now although I think it needs to be more powerful for hosting night AFL games but probably will be played in the daytime if we were to play AFL games. Just all hypotheticals.
