Quoting Ummmmm:
Hey anyone, you do know that south, zebras and Olympia all play in the NPL and knights play in the southern championship don't you?
Knights aren't in the NPL.
I would think that knights player budget was double the budgets of nelson, Uni, metro, Hobart, new town, beachside, taroona and southern FC all added together.
I'm sure the championship clubs understand and respect your desire to get back to NPL, but that doesn't mean your supporters have to be belligerent to those championship club players and supporters who are all trying their best on about 5 or 10% of the money your club has.
It's not the championship clubs players and supporters fault you aren't in NPL any more.


1. Beachside give so they need to receive
2. No other Champ clubs targeted. Just Clarence who will be Championship in 2020
3. you can stop talking about Uni and Taroona now. Its Knights all the way to NPL in 2019.

It's also not The Knights fault that other clubs are only on about 5 or 10% of the money Knights are on.

I would think that zebras Olympia and south would have a higher player wages budget than knights.
