This also largely hinges on believing Lawrie's direct words, which as even some extremely loyal fans have pointed out is up to us all to choose if we actually believe what he says or not..

    In at least one of the Jerkstream podcasts with Lawrie, he went into some detail about how hard it was for Martin Lee to get money to us, and Lawrie even said he was doing either 3-monthly or maybe even yearly blocks. Just a lump sum, budgeted, that we had to manage throughout the timeframe until the next block sum.

    Hearing this recent news, if true, that we have had no money directly from the owner since October last year throws up many possible scenarios but with the above in context all I assume it means is our yearly lump sum is now due, being October one year later, and so we are waiting on that.
    OK

    Feel sorry for JP - got completely blindsided for what looks like no apparent reason on his part.

    I think all the coaches sacked by wsw must be laughing when they see it happening again - and the team performance consistently deteriorating.

    What I fear now is CR trying to poach our best players: I hope the players' contracts are written better than the coaches'

    Who says the players would want to go with him after he jumped ship on them?

    None of the contracts would be enforceable given the clubs financial situation and / or Job Keeper payments being used - unless the players received full wages and Job Keeper was only used to top them up.

    Players will be loyal to their Management Agency reps more so than their clubs. Robinson's with AVID as are many of our players including Ledley and Ugarkovich.
    I'm expecting Uga to make an announcement very soon - and it won't be good news for Jets fans.

    I dont remember anything specific regarding the regularity of money transfers from Ledman, other than it was difficult to make happen on a regular basis due to Chinese govt restrictions.
    However one very interesting tidbit that came out in the presser posted on the Jets social media yesterday was that Lawrie specifically said Lee wont pay any further contributions. Thats to say that he has made a conscious decision to cease funding. Why havent the FFA taken back the licence and sold the club to another party if thats the case, as Martin Lee has clearly reneged on the conditions of ownership of the licence to fund the club? Why are we waiting for this mythical $15mil bidder to pay back Martin's supposed amount of investment into the club since he took over? Con and Tinkler were both removed as owners by the FFA when money problems became too difficult for the FFA to stomach, so why has Ledman been allowed to stop funding 12 months ago with no action being taken whatsoever?
    I can only speculate that there are some specifics in the FFA/Ledman contract regarding removal of the licence by the FFA that have possibly come into play. Unfortunately we may never know.

    The FFA won't want to take us back with only a week or so until the club's takeover control of the league. (I think that time frame is right).

    So we will have to wait until that change and then hope that the other clubs can all throw in and take us back. I wonder if there's any rules in place for this tho, maybe when the club's takeover they don't have an opportunity/right to "take back" licences at all? It might be sale or fold, no in between?

    Yes. Take it off him.

    Wollongong Phoenix, I assume WIN stadium will be there home ground. LOLs at Perf, shame if McGowan doesn't let them out of the state, won't be missed...
    Life isn't the same without Con... but it can only improve without Tinks...

    So does that mean we will eventually be shipped off to Canberra, now that the 'Gong is taken?
