    I assume that "$600,000 will be paid by the Club" means the football club and not the Leagues Club.

    The Leagues Club lost another $400,000 last year and their cash reserves went down by about $1.0 mill. (Financials available in their annual report). Their only asset is the value of the poker machine licences.

    However, does the football club actually have that much money, or is it coming from the Penns?

    Well, hundreds like me endured the downpour on the Hill when we played Easts a few weeks back.
    The match wasn't that memorable, but the weather was.
    I wouldn't have missed getting drenched for the world!

      The FC has zero funds and puts most of their membership fees back into collating their Annual Report and printing their membership cards @:cool:

      The real questions are what entity will own the COE as the land itself belongs to the Northern Beaches Council.
      How much rent will they be charging and who will be able to lease the facilities, and how often will it be increased ?:nerd:

      Joking ....... I love the hill but I would love a fancy stand there and for there to be a boutique 20,000 to 25,000 stadium. We'd do so well if we got that, the Northern beaches community would get out and use it.

      It's totally **** that we are the red headed stepchild of the the NRL and the political stadium wars. As we all know it's all politics and it's so, so, so ****ed how as a club we have been taken for granted by our so called politicians and left behind because of it. I have lived all my life on the Northern Beaches but have a shop out Parra way and I often drive by the new stadium they have, it's TOTALLY amazing and is such an advantage and one that we will struggle to compete with. I am very jealous.

      What ****s me most about all this stadium discussion is that all the ****wits that bag us and Brookie forget that all their ****en fancy stadiums were paid for by tax payers.

      Rant over.

        Its like the NFL in the US where the Taxpayers cough up for the Stadiums that are then occupied by Teams owned by Billionaires.
        Yet the USA supposedly abhors socialism :fubar:

          The hill was never lowered. Where did that urban myth come from? It probably appears diminished because the section with the tunnel through it was removed. The stands (particularly the Arko) may also make it seem smaller, as do the big light towers.

          Think how diminished the AMP Building appeared after the AMP Centre went up behind it. Or look at North Sydney’s Northpoint, once dominant, now much less so, courtesy of its newer neighbours.

          If anything, hundreds of thousands of people stomping over it might have seen it compress over the last fifty-odd years, but not enough to be discernible to the naked eye. We’re talking millimetres.

          plenty of people prefer the hill so why not give all options.

          An upgrade to that paths in/out (can't believe this wasn't one of the first steps) for safety and an upgrade to toilets it all it needs.

          btw the new part of the Jane try is rarely more than 1/4 full so plenty of seating on the side (and not even looking into the sun)

          Each bay of seats is approx. 20 seats wide by 12 rows deep so the artist is showing about half the seating that will be there.

          impression indeed

          Think of it as a Trojan horse to get a new grandstand. There is a pot of money that allows clubs to build CoEs, with a bonus of a grandstand (in this instance). There isn’t a state govt fund to simply build new grandstands.

            absolutely

            we need to have options everyone enjoys, seats on one side, hill on the other. Just improve the paths and amenities.

            Only downside to adding to the hill is a good slide path for the kids down the back

            Lol.
            Great rant.
            And I agree.
            Trouble is my why question was in relation to stirring Bozo up again.
            You knew what you were going to get...

            The slide path could evolve into a climbing wall. Or a slide cliff.

            The Council as owner of the land will also be owner of the COE, the thing is, The Sea Eagles say they're fine with what they have at Narrabeen and as they probably won't be able to train at Brookie, they'll have no use for the COE

              I would say it's from The Sea Eagles [Penns] as the other two entities have probably no funds whatsoever

              Trouble is, that downpour occurred just as the game started, when most people already turned up, if it was raining like that two hours before the game, how many would have just stayed home?
