    Being that I two blocks from living in NCC it don't affect me (yeah lucky to live in LMC)

    But exactly why the **** are the people in NCC putting up with a council sponsoring sporting teams ??

    Doesn't exactly seem to be anywhere on their list of responsibilities and coughing up rate payers money for this seems a ****ing exorbitant no no

    perhaps they see 20K as a pretty good investment to boost the profile of the city and encourage tourism, demonstrate their value of active healthy lifestyles and see potential in an economic return and a boost to public engagement in physical activity

    Settle down posters, it will be "in kind" donation of hiring costs for NCC owned facility.

    That's ass.

    I'd be the same if they did that for any team. Obviously going for the feel good vote for the leftards, and this is the popular flavour right now.

    Why not youth off the streets campaign, or homeless, subsidise kids rego. way more productive.

    I don't understand what you're implying. Is it not a good thing that the Jets can now pay Emily to play?

    I don't care how. One could argue she is the worlds best number 10 of the women's game and we are fortunate to have her here. Sorry Cous but she will always be remembered as the smartest footballer in the family.

    Yes it is great, but for a council to support a privately owned business sets precendence

    I still don't see exactly how it is in the council's domain
    Hey take the money and run but I would rather they go spend the money on grassroots facilities for our code than give the Jets this sponsorship

    McKinna be better off trying to be getting the cash out of umpteen million private businesses out there than stealing cash from grassroots
