    Haha, Conroy is so ****ing good at this.

    Jets are screwed.

    All we can do now is wait till New Lambton gets promoted to the A-league so there is a local team in the comp again.

    Michael Cain on Twitter saying an APL insider has told him the finances of the APL are so bad, the entire league could fold at the end of the season.

    I don't know how credible Michael has been. I take it with a grain of salt.

    The post does have a tone of an annoyed dig at the APL.

    TBH - would not surprise. I was thinking within three seasons though not the end of this one.

    The genie might have been let out of the bottle here and I'm sure the other chairmen are thinking the same thing - where has the money gone? Conroy always bites and blames, no surprise there.

    It's not just us - the whole league is reeking of patchwork, the positive vibe is gone (no P+ glossing over changes that), the crowds are poor, the atmosphere killed off.

    For the umpteenth time we are heading into dark times.

    Looks like Newcastle United are coming out in May - last chance saloon?

    I would say that the APL wouldn?t shoot themselves in the foot but past behaviour suggests otherwise.

    Guys, it?s been a pleasure, we?ll always have Griff

    So the APL doesnt give a **** about Newcastle. Least we know where we stand.

    Happy to let Auckland in starting with nothing. Happy to help Perth. APL ****s

    Hope this model falls in a heap and is resurrected as something new. Lowy wasnt so bad after all.

    Conroy's playing some real Judean People's Front style business right now.

    Conroy has reacted like a nerve has been touched.

    Also - why bring Canberra into it?

    Not really, Has been rumored for some time that both Paramount and the APL are from happy with what value each organization has added to the League and doubt remained over Paramount being around next season. Should that be the case that puts a huge question mark over club funding from broadcasting and any forward financial forecasting the APL have done.

    If your going to pony up for a A League club/license you want the APL figures to be rock solid. Perhaps the APL don't want the scrutiny as they don't even know themselves how bad things are going to get and just how rubbery there projections could be.

    Would be interesting to know if the Federal Sports Minister Anika Wells has any jurisdiction in this area ( take a smarter person than me to know for sure ) and able to instigate an inquiry into the governance of the APL particularly in the financials and accountability and have board members of the APL including those board members who currently own the Jets have been asleep at the wheel.

    Also now would be a great time to hear from Shane.

    So Conroy delivers a 1 month ultimatum for the future of the Jets and its a situation the club has little control over.
    Where is the Auckland FC licence money going !
    Bringing new teams in, cashing in on new club owners without doing everything you can to secure the future of existing clubs is ludicrous.
    Its a kick in the teeth to all Jets fans, members and players.

    After having a night to think, interested to see then next move in this. Do the club come out and respond? What do KordaMentha need to do? The current owners, who have been silent forever, come out and reassure their commitment? If the sale is processed does Conroy come out and chest-thump about pushing things through because of his influence?

    This is going to start affecting player retention and could impact the club if a sale actually does happen. Think Lucas Mauragis...he's out of contract. What is he going to do with others interested in him? By all accounts he enjoys playing for Rob and the club but I think he's a real risk of leaving.

    It would be fascinating to see what's going on behind the scenes.

    Gotta be pretty hard to get motivated to slog it out in training / behind the scenes with this season basically gone, and no assurances that there will be a club/job for you next season.

    I think it's going to have a larger impact on the Women's team. They're actually competing to make the finals this season.
