Think of the good that money could do & they're sinking into this crap.
It’s funny how afl and their clubs dominate the sponsors dollar money market in Australia!

Meanwhile there are/were clubs struggling to find sponsors and others bailing due to shit culture or no value for money!

Yep sink money in to that crap called league

SUNS LOCK IN NT PREMIERSHIP GAMES UNTIL 2023

The Gold Coast Suns will play one game a year in the Northern Territory and have first dibs on talent from the region as part of a new agreement with AFL Northern Territory.

I don't like the whole playing games away from home, whether it be townsville, Cairns, China or Northern Territory. Suns need to focus on their local market. Everything else is there on the GC re: Australian Rules Football - strong and numerous leagues, growth in numbers playing, (could do with a few more grounds actually) they just need to have their team doing well and get more supporters behind them and to games. I can almost guarantee (see what I did there notaleaguefan to stop the pendents - "almost") that crowds would be significantly larger and the so so supporter would be going to more games - look at the lions. So why the hell they would play the game away from home in a market that they are trying to gain a better foothold in astounds me. Bad decision I reckon.

In saying that - I think the recent trade period has been a good one for the Suns. Some good recruits in some mature players and the signing of King sends a great message. Be interested to see what Jack Martin does now that he wasn't traded?

I don't think it is desperation times really, well not in regard to this. I think it is desperation times in regard to their win/loss ratio however. The Suns now have the NT as part of their zone to recruit from or something like that and I'm guessing the pay off is they play this game there and have a role in the community. I don't like it - not at all - just as I think the whole Canberra thing is not right for GWS from a marketing perspective. This, I feel, has the opposite effect of trying to get local support (and I suspect the Suns have a lot more local support than GWS given they are losing big time and still getting okat numbers at the ground). Are the suns still having their Cairns/Townsville game on top of this?

Nope - don't like it. Bad idea.

unsure about the deal with Cairns & Townsville.

If it is it would mean only 9 games on the Gold Coast.
I assume the weaker drawing teams would be shifted to Darwin and North QLD.

I don't think the Suns have exclusive rights to the Northern Territory - priority access I think.

You just realised how stupid and ignorant the comment was after I pointed out that several nrl teams play interstate as well! Even run double headers

Are you sure they have exclusive rights ?? I thought they had priority but not necessarily exclusive. For someone who has an obsession with the literal meaning of words I am assuming you mean exclusive when you say exclusive so I’m not doubting you as you’re usually right about such stuff but can’t find where it is exclusive ?

This sits in conjunction with the endorsement the AFL Commission gave two weeks ago; that with Darwin provisioned as a SUNS Academy zone, the club has the ability to pre-sign players without having to work through the Draft bidding system and an increase to include 10 players on its rookie list.

That’s what I read on the Suns academy agreement
