    Can't decide if this is a pisstake or not.

    Apparently Ben homer said something on the telecast the other day about a meeting taking place this week with the prospective ownership consortium.
    Still probably a pisstake though

    It wasn't a pisstake!
    People always want a source whenever someone posts any information so I used some humour to provide a source.
    If this ownership isn't completed in the next 2-3 weeks then I can't see the deal being done.
    It's been a very drawn out process and people's patience only last so long !
    Business deals and negotiations require some level of give and take to be agreed on !
    The smoke filled, seedy Jolly Roger would have been the perfect place to negotiate the sale of the Jets !

    Do we think this is still the Australian consortium that was rumoured ?

    It's the slowest ownership change ever but we should be hearing something from the club this week or next week at the latest !

    Announcement this week? Coincidently, billionaire and CHFC #1 ticket holder Jack Ma is in Oz at the moment.


    Wonder if the local powerbrokers finally convinced him to dig out some spare change from the back of the lounge and buy this sorry ass club.

    If memory serves me correctly he did give a truckload of dough to the Newcastle University a few years ago.

    Townsend is currently in Canberra discussing a potential A League team there. Wonder if it's our licence or another expansion team?

    I thought Richard Peil was the money behind the ACT bid and when that was not awarded he tipped those funds into the Mariners.

    Might have been originally, but there's another group now. Can't remember their names.

    No updates from me on this.
    I have just had a parent pass away so I will be out of the loop for a while.
