Foxtel Games Bid
One fly in the ointment is the continuing court case in which Foxtel is only one of a number of outlets being sued by Seven. As a result, Foxtel has been negotiating only with the Ten Network.     
 
Meanwhile, despite several AFL Commissioners and some clubs warming to the idea, Andrew Demetriou has again refuted any notion of a night Grand Final. However, new broadcast partners Seven and Ten both believe a night GF is inevitable in the future.

Seven Grounds Get Upgrade

The Victorian Government and the AFL have announced a $55 million upgrade of seven former VFL/AFL grounds in Melbourne: Punt Road, Princes Park, Moorabbin, Windy Hill, Victoria Park, Waverley Park and Arden Street.

Under the plan, iconic grandstands at Princes Park and Moorabbin will be demolished and replaced by community sports centures. The other five grounds will also be partly redeveloped.

The club's HQ, including the infamous "animal enclosure" that was home to the most parochial fans, will boast a futuristic all-in-one complex.

McLean was ably assisted by James McDonald and Clint Bartram.   Russell Robertson whose entire Melbourne career has been played under Neitz's captaincy added another goal for the Demons, the pair combining well.
