    And the old pitch is going to Magic? Surely there are numerous other grounds around town that would benefit froma new better surface than a club that already has a damn good surface. Alder Park, Edden Oval, Thornton Oval and numerous others would have gained a greater benefit than Magic.

    Magic are close, close = cheapest option, therefore turf goes to magic.

    Stevenson Park is due to get some of the soil to fill in the hundreds of pot holes there. Not sure about the turf itself - although it could really do with that as well.

    amazing huh, who would have thought that letting a bunch of self made passionate people alone to their own devices in a competitive environment would produce more enthusiasm and innovation than having to listen to a bunch of suits with no idea tell them what to do with their own money.

    ive way way way more faith in the future of the league than i ever had just on the back of letting the clubs run the comp.
    theres def some really lean years ahead though.

    also of note, right when the league looks forward and inspires owners to chase their egos, our bloke has given up.

    also of note, this is exactly what Tinkler was pushing for the day he turned up.

    so are Alder and particularly Edden. I just think there are others more in need.

    I was always under the impression that Magics ground was under the same precinct umbrella as McDonald Jones, Trotting track etc.

    Strong rumours coming out that Gary Hooper (Celtic, Norwich, etc) has signed for the Nix. If so its not a bad grab as he's just 31.

    So let me get this right

    We have carried an Assistant coach through pre season and will have him on the bench for the first game then after that he will finish up and not be involved with the club and we ain't gonna replace him ??

    The logic here is staggering

    If you believe it is Ernie's call more than the real reason of budgetary constraints then you must believe the Rock really is the tooth fairy. Every decision this club has made in recent times has had the lean method of operation front and centre.

    we continue to support this club and hope it will one day be competitive again - think we all score high on the gullibility stakes round here...

    Jets logic

    If he wasn't needed he should have been released at the end of last season

    If he was needed why release him after preseason and 1 game
