At the risk of saying it once more for tedium, the difference between finishing third and finishing ninth is 200k, or pretty much all of the 300k losses. Couple that with increased revenue if challenging for the league and making decent business decisions like firing an ineffective CEO and getting someone decent in to grow the business and profitability is not some aspirational ask. This whole sustainability s***e should be seen As, and pointed and laughed at, as the most brainless idea ever, given it is,by it's very ambition, condemning you to deliberately give up on that 200k every year by definition. None of this is hard.
A major problem being that we don’t have any cover if we speculate to accumulate and fail to finish third - which has happened to us and to other clubs in the past. The owners will no longer absorb those losses or underwrite that risk. In that context we simply have to budget cautiously until such times as new investment or ownership comes along.
