    With the unbundling of the A-League agreed, who (A-League, APL, both) will be coordinating the process for new owner due diligence and providing approval should due diligence be passed?

    How many players have signed over to The Entity (and who are they)? Have any players used this situation to pursue other options?

    Could you please outline The Entity's thoughts on jets-shaped hats and how supportive of the concept are they?

    Piggybacking off Jeterpool - Does it include partial/full community ownership? What would The Entity need to see to convince them that community ownership is viable?

    Good on you for getting this opportunity. Overall it would be nice to tease out of him what his overall brief is.

    I'm guessing he will be keeping his cards close to his chest but some things are:

    - What is the target time frame to get the club to a point where it could be on sold. That is, when does the Entity expect to have it flogged off by. Is there a preference of how it is on sold (considering the noises to want to sell it to locals). What give's them confidence that this would be achievable.
    - Confirm with him "The Entity" bought it for "free" without debt liability. As a lower priority, is he willing to say how much the debts are and to who most are owed, is he confident that none will stick with The Entity.
    - What is the existing financial situation like? That is, how much is money going out greater than money going in. This question leads into how hard do the consortium have to work to turn the ship around to it being viable.
    - Is he willing to give away where they have initially thought that the best changes can be made to improve the financial/Jet's situation. For The Entity to step in they must have thought there was a chance to turn it around and had some ideas at that point they pulled the trigger. Would be good to tease out what these ideas were/are.
    - Is there any thought that the Entity will add money upfront and to which areas.
    - Can we still afford to play at McDonald Jones stadium?
    - At this stage does he foresee bring any further expertise in and who / what areas
    - Has he spoken to existing sponsors and does he foresee any further sponsors at this stage.

    How big and where on our jerseys will the $FC, WU and WSW logos be as sponsors, (not this last one, just a poor joke).

    I'd ask the question broadly to start with - let Shane answer and have your question as a follow up question depending on the Shane's response.

    What will The Entity be doing differently, both in terms of current ownership operation and during eventual selection of new owners, to ensure the Jets can become sustainable and don't end up in this situation again in another 3 years?

    - How long are the entity prepared to carry the club? (ie what happens if they cant find a buyer in 2 or 3 years?)
    - If GVE or any other coach is put in by The Entity what will be the length of the contract and will it have a clause that allows the new owners to put their own coach in without having to pay out the installed coach?
    - How do they plan to engage with the community? (is there a plan or is this just the usual takeover talk)
    - What role will Mckinna have in the coming months?
    - What is the cost of using McDonald Jones Stadium, is this a realistic home ground long term based on the clubs financial position across a number of owners?

    Media reports stated that all players contracts were voided and they needed to sign with The Entity.

    Have all players signed across for this year? What happens to those on loan - Matt Millar and Joey Champness?

    Jets fans have done this dance many times before. What lessons have you taken from previous forced licence transfers?

    Given the AFC statutes regarding cross ownership and conflicts of interest with regards to club ownership what exact processes have been established to ensure the Newcastle Jets are professionally administered given The Entity members conflicts of interest.

    What assurances can The Entity members provide that the Jets will not be raped and pillaged by their club's and used as a dumping ground for their cast offs - the Newcastle / NNSW football community deserves more than being treated as a feeder club for these capital city club's.

    Given the previous and ongoing attacks on the Jets staff and players by WSW and their chairman, who's actions have directly resulted in all players conveniently being off contract, Why should the Jets members and supporters believe that they will be treated fairly or as equals after the poaching and clearly destructive nature of WSW's behaviour which appears on face value to have escalated and hastened the demise of the club - leaving many novocastrian businesses in debt - for what appears to be the financial reward of the WSW owner & his associates.

    If The Entity is to be believed, they claim that the Newcastle and Hunter has much potential, however given the non commital nature of The Entity statements and further the new executive chairman's statements that the Newcastle public have to come out and show they want a team and that it will be important for the clubs fortunes morning forward, indicating relocation is a very real threat, what assurances can be provided that these new capital city owners have the interest of Newcastle, Hunter region & NNSW at heart and not simply securing this season's broadcast rights revenue.

    Follow-up to above - if The Entity is adamant that relocation is off the table / a last resort, then the Newcastle football community call on The Entity to provide a golden share in the new and future ownership to be controlled by the Newcastle Jets Members. This should also be extended to include things such as team colours and naming controls as well given the history and actions of recent owners and zero due diligence by those in power with all previous ownership transitions. The Newcastle football communities passion has been abused and trampled on for far too long, perhaps it's time the A-League / APL showed the people of Newcastle, Hunter & NNSW that they deserve our energy, passion and commitment moving forward.
