The Glory Hole Crypto Pyramid (Perth Thread)

Appalling crowd considering it's Malaga.

Is a Sunday night I guess but would think they'd be able to find a few more fans. New Glory shirt looks horrible

 

Looks like they're wearing bibs  :lol:

This game was only added at the last minute to Malaga's tour and 99% of local football is played in that time slot. Has been kicking off at the local level because football west offered to re fixture games if clubs wanted to watch the Malaga game instead. Only problem was they forgot to notify other teams and referees if their opponent had called for the game to be reorganised.

A "False Advertising Lawsuit" is apparently already in the works.

RE: FFA RESTRICTIONS ON ACTIVE SUPPORT

After many discussions between the groups and individuals that make up the Perth Terrace we have decided to make our stance public….

We write this statement to show our utmost disapproval to ANY proposed restrictions and/or changes, to the rules and guidelines regarding the active support area at Perth Glory home games.

We feel any proposed restrictions will have nothing but a detrimental effect to the growth of the Perth Glory fan-base and could discourage potential fans from becoming involved with the Perth Glory Football Club and it's fan-base on a consistent basis.

We feel that football fans should have the right, at any time of any match, to join in with and contribute to active support without being treated like a criminal. This simply isn't possible under the new proposed restrictions being introduced by the FFA, because if fans do not have a "Active Area" season ticket, you simply will not be allowed to participate in the Active area.

In Western Australia, which is very much a AFL-media driven state, we feel that football should be given as much of a boost as possible in order to compete with AFL at all levels, one unique factor that football does have over AFL is the passionate, loud, jovial atmosphere that is created by active supporters. We simply cannot understand why the FFA would want to restrict the growth in this area, an area with massive pulling power to get the fans through the gates and potentially keep them there as life-long fans of the culture of football, the game itself and of course the A-league clubs which bring to game to the fans.

The following quote from Damien De Bohun (Head of the A-league) which was written in an article written on the Football Australia website (Monday 16th June 2014 - FFA's new measures for active support areas)

"FFA is committed to working with each club to customise solutions based on their individual needs and their respective membership markets to comply with these conditions."

We ask of Mr De Bohun, in regards to "solutions based on the individual needs", to dissolve any proposed changes or restrictions to Perth Glory Active Support.

It is simply NOT in the "Needs" or the best interests of the Perth Glory Football Club, the fans, the Hyundai A-league nor is it in anyway beneficial to the growth of football in Western Australia.

I still think this picture has more credibility than the wanderers 'hooligan' picture.

Perth Glory made Nebojsa Marinkovic and Michael Thwaite marquee players to avoid salary cap breach

Perth Glory played the first two games of their FFA Cup campaign with a squad that would have exceeded the A-League salary cap by 20 per cent had it remained unchanged for the remainder of the season.

Going into Tuesday night's FFA Cup final between Perth Glory and Adelaide United, Fairfax Media can reveal Perth Glory were exceeding the forecasted annual salary cap by approximately $500,000 for theirfirst two rounds of the FFA Cup. Perth defeated Newcastle Jets and St Albans Saints in the first two rounds on their run to the inaugural final of the competition.

Glory also played the opening two games of the A-League season over their annual salary cap forecast of $2.55 million, the limit imposed on all 10 A-League clubs. They won their first two games of the season at the expense of Wellington Phoenix and Brisbane Roar and now lead the ladder. Sources involved with the club say Glory management was warned internally that its pre-season recruitment would takethe club well over the annual salary cap as a result of a shopping spree that brought the likes of Mitch Nichols, Youssouf Hersi, Andy Keogh, Richard Garcia, Diogo Ferreira and Ruben Zadkovich to Perth. The club subsequently brought its books into line with A-League requirements by shifting two of its highest earners into marquee positions. Defender Michael Thwaite and midfielder Nebojsa Marinkovic were on October 22 approved by the FFA as marquee players exempted from the salary cap.

The two players were moved outside of the cap with no fanfare in a move that contrasted with the club's declaration on May 28 that it had no intention of signing marquee players and was prepared only to operate within the salary cap due to financial reasons. It is understood Perth are now operating at approximately $50,000 under the A-League salary cap for this season.

Head of the A-League Damien De Bohun said he had no concerns that what could be seen as an administrative error might have threatened Perth's season. De Bohun said each club's salary cap was only assessed annually and that the FFA monitored player wages quarterly. The FFA was first notified of the Perth's financial position in early October before Marinkovic and Thwaite were moved outside of the cap to rectify the club's salary cap problem.

"It's obviously a few months into the contract system but the bottom line is that payments are worked over a 12-month period, we do payment reviews quarterly," De Bohun said.

He said he was not concerned with the specific dates of the salary reportage as long as Perth's books were in line with the stringent A-League salary cap requirements by June 30, 2015.

"Dates, in terms of when contracts are lodged with us, the reality is that it's a dynamic environment," he said. "Different players are signed up before the season starts, some contracts carry over and in the january transfer window, some players go and new players come in."

Perth Glory chief executive Jason Brewer said the players were shifted over in order to give the club flexibility to recruit other players. He says the club lodged the applications on the eve of the start of the A-League season but not before the FFA Cup began.

"We are completely compliant with A-League salary cap regulations," Brewer said. "The inclusion of players such as Michael Thwaite and Nebojsa Marinkovic as international marquees and domestic marquees is entirely consistent with regulations."

I like that. Play all or part of the season in contempt of the rules and then fiddle around later to appear compliant.

Classic!

As they say ......it's better to "tweek" and beg for forgiveness than ask for permission.

I don't see a problem with the initial issue, they had a date to comply by and they did.

We'll see what comes of this other investigation though. If they've broken the rules they should be punished, but it sure does show the flaws in the current system whereby they wouldn't even be close to spending the most on salaries yet they could be in trouble for breaching the cap.

Not that I care what happens to them but they have to compete with clubs in Melbourne and Sydney where it comes to quality and life style options.

Clubs which are geographically "challenged/retarded" deserve some allowances on salary cap line.

I would suggest a 1 game suspension would suffice.
