    New Ownership 2023

    Our change in ownership will apparently be announced early 2023.
    Will it be Melbourne based owners ?
    Will it be American based owners ?
    Will it be Asian based owners ?

    The club really needs some committed and dedicated owners this time or our future could be in doubt !

    My guess is that Richard Peil bloke who will just buy our license and sell it to Canberra to cover his current loses with the Gypos, then he'll merge us and try to actually get some fans to his games for once.


    Can't imagine a more fitting story than finally getting ****ed off by a bloke named Dick Peel, lol.

    According to one of our sponsors. It's all been very hush hush.
    Danny Townsend made reference to it in his ESPN interview as well.
    Its all apparently complicated due to us being owned by four different clubs.

    Have you got a link to the ESPN interview?

    I have been wondering about the sale. Hope it's true, but I guess I may not like the outcome.

    From what I know that sounds about right - the buyer said they would take a 12 month due diligence process as they did with the previous club they bought.

    The license will not be moved or merged - that is (or at least was) a criterion demanded by the four club consortium.

    Of course there maybe another buyer now - I can't be sure.

    If a new owner can't be found be seasons end and sorted for next then IMO that is what will happen.

    I think it would be fair to assume we are past the point of any " return on investment " for the other 4 club owners who have been carrying us financially for the past few. I doubt very much whatever sale price could be negotiated for the Jets would not be enough to cover what they have tipped in.

    I wonder what money they’ve “not lost” though by keeping us in the comp.

    But I agree, these people don’t have money to buy football clubs for shits and giggles by making poor business decisions.

    They’ll know the end of their line. They are only keeping us for their own benefit. As soon as our usefulness ends, they’ll be gone.

    I was just thinking of a silly thing to say, and thought that Magic or Edgy would be able to afford a license soon.
    And then I kind of wondered how far off the pace we would be if we just fielded a NNSW NPL dream team. Zane has his young teams playing well and competing with A league teams - albeit in cup games with weakened lineups. Feel like CCM have managed to conjure up a competitive team from their return and earn from their baked beans cans.

    It's an embarrassment that the Gypos can actually rustle up a competitive team with their situation

    Yet we are playing guys like Hoffman Ingham Sotirio Burhagier etc

    Total farce of incompetence

    In the early hours of this morning at The Jolly Roger, I overheard Middleby, Tinkler and Lawrie saying the new owners will be announced within the next 2 weeks.
