Sure pal. Except that BHP have never owned any sporting franchise. And will never do so. It's idiocy to suggest they would.
Whats to fucking stop them? If News corporation can own a sports club - or league for that matter - why cant any other corporation? Its idiocy to suggest they wouldnt.
In RL licenced clubs have a charter to promote, promulgate and finance RL. It was the reason they were built. It is there raison d'etre!!! And the finances of leagues clubs and football clubs are reported independently unlike the AFL.
Except for nearly half the fucking clubs in the league who DO produce combined reports. ffs you cannot be this stupid.
- Newcastle (Wests Grp)
- North Queensland
- Sydney (Easts)
Half the clubs in the AFL dont even have pokies.
- West Coast
- Gold Coast
- North Melbourne
- Collingwood (sold last year)
- Melbourne (sold last year)
If leagues clubs revenues and profits were reported together with their associated football club they would dwarf AFL revenue.
So get the reports of the Parent entity.
Hence the Redcliffe Dolphins are the favourites to be Brisbane's 2nd team. They have a leagues club. A state of the art stadium. And $100M in assets.
That's how it works pal!!!!
and 30m in revenue according to the nrl economist dude
