Notes

* AFL club revenues in 2017 narrowly missed the billion dollar mark, totalling $998.13m, at an average of $55.45m per club.
* 4 AFL clubs reported comprehensive losses totalling 5.87m, 14 AFL clubs reported profits totalling $26.62m
* Next time someone tries to tell you its all about television - AFL clubs turned $218 million in revenue last season on memberships, reserved seating and gate receipts. This doesnt include figures from Richmond and Port Adelaide which arent available and would push it over $240m
* Also note that AFL clubs also turned over more than $200m in Sponsorship revenues last season at an average of $11 million per club.
* Attendance and membership revenues dont include central AFL income from their own memberships, or matchday revenues at the MCG which go to the AFL, not the clubs (its about 50/50 under the current deal). Sponsorship revenue doesnt include central AFL revenue either.

A spade is a spade no matter what you want to call it! - I guess some clubs are just a little bit/a whole lot more equal than others.

Every club is entitled to AFL distributions. Even mega rich club like collingwood get a fair chunk. Clubs like the suns get more which is the cost of expansion. If the league can afford it wheres the issue.
