While it has been long established that the AFL Clubs of Victoria are Pokie Revenue mad and will stop at nothing to increase their gambling and pokies income stream, even if that comes at the expense of the community as a whole - It seems that they are at it again, and actually I think I would be right in assuming they never even stopped counting their money and as such never actually started giving two shits about the community they purport to support and be a part of.
AFL - The Australian Pokies League
We recently revealed how the AFL Clubs have been systematically paying less and less toward the "community" instead using the money to improve sporting and club facilities and claiming this as 'community' related. - Read this article HERE to learn more, or keep reading and see more of the same bullshit being spouted by the AFL Clubs as they look for an excuse, ANY excuse as to why they need more pokies and more gamblers playing them across Victoria
And Now They've Been Caught Red Handed Again!
Taxpayers in Victoria are giving our richest AFL clubs a $50 million free kick by letting them claim their poker machine revenue is used to help the community. ... not that the people of Victoria have thought to question their AFL Clubs, I mean is it not fair to assume that the local clubs who have been a part of our culture and our friends and neighbours for 100 years can be trusted to do right by the community as a whole?
You Assumeth too much
But a Herald Sun investigation has found clubs are using the huge losses of gamblers to pay for upgrades to clubrooms, spas and stadiums, run club events and pay wages.
Anti-gambling advocates say clubs are “rorting” the system, having claimed $50 million of “community benefits” in the past three years.
Of that, $33 million was spent on the operating costs of 17 pokies venues run by Carlton, Collingwood, Essendon, Geelong, Melbourne, Richmond, St Kilda, Hawthorn and the Western Bulldogs.
“They’re just gaming the system all the way to the bank,” Monash University gambling expert Dr Charles Livingstone said.
“They get a tax holiday because they exist. It’s nonsense.”
Let's Breakdown that $33 million and see exactly what Carlton, Collingwood, Essendon, Geelong, Melbourne, Richmond, St Kilda, Hawthorn & the Western Bulldogs think the word community entails.
