    Won't be surprised if we have to ask for our own hand out if the lockdown goes on long enough.

    One positive from the PG interview is that it sounds like he has the ear of Gil, so we're not going to be blindsided at any point.
    PG is on a special committee for the Coronavirus, along with Eddie and two others (can't remember who)

    You can have a listen

    Start each day with a task completed. Find someone to help you through life. Respect everyone.
    Know that life is not fair and that you will fail often. But if take you take some risks, step up when the times are toughest, face down the bullies, lift up the downtrodden and never, ever give up — if you do these things, then the next generation and the generations that follow will live in a world far better than the one we have today.
    And what started here will indeed have changed the world — for the better.

    How times have changed. Great to be so ahead now on the financial front. Challenging times at the moment but our club is in a great position.

    Very pragmatic response from the Pres in reference to the options faced by clubs with respect to borrowing from the AFL in this instance. Possibly the best PR to come out of the club in years was him suggesting that we weren't eligible for assistance from the AFL at this time. I'm pretty confident a few adjustments to the sheet would have changed that if we thought it was to our benefit, but we'll never know.

    Politics is very interesting but don’t like to get too political on woof as woof is not that type of forum.

    Re: Western Bulldogs among the six clubs to go it alone

    Just a thought. Yes its commendable that the bulldogs are cashed up and thus don't need to rely on the AFL and can use their existing cash reserves to fund their operations. Is that necessarily the right move? If the AFL is offering finance and relatively good terms, wouldn't it be better to hang onto the cash and take the AFL loan. Once corona is over the loan could be restructured and paid down over time.

    The problem with relying on cash reserves is that once depleted they are gone. So if there is another crisis in the enxt couple of years what then? You go from being a strong self sufficient club to a club begging for a hand out.

    Is there a way of taking the Dwayne out of world before I listen.
    I have sensitive hearing.
    There are plenty of talented people in the world. As you already know, talent is not enough. Some of the athletes with the most potential never pan out. What separates the good from the great is determination and work ethic.

    You have to be eligible to get the loan, ie no cash reserves.

    Essendon to go it alone financially - they have decided if they don't their independence will be compromised.
