Sheesh that's close.

Bit concerned here at the prospect of some accountability for Kenny and the football department.


Kenny’s got a contract extension so it won’t matter

Glad to hear after a decade of denying PAFC owes the SANFL anything. Its finally been cleared up.

So is the $16 mill Port rcvd from the afl this year an annual grant ???.

It’s the equalisation distribution payments. Every club gets given it every year, some more than others.
It’s not a loan or grant

So Port will get $16 mill annually from AFL moving forward. Nicely negotiated!!!


So the AFl supplies nearly 30% of Ports revenue ($55 mill last year from memory).

No it’s adjusted yearly.
If Port start selling more memberships, making more money etc they will get less next time around.
The two AFL love child’s and the Saints get most of the money

PORT ADELAIDE has secured Todd Marshall until the end of 2029 after the key forward agreed to terms on a long-term contract extension.

Already contracted until the end of 2024, the new five-year extension will see Marshall tied to Port Adelaide well beyond his initial eligibility for free agency.

Marshall said he couldn’t imagine playing anywhere else.

“This club gave me my first crack at AFL and has supported me through some tough times both on and off the field,” Marshall said.

“I want to repay the club for the faith and support they’ve shown me from the day I was drafted.

“We’re building something special and very few players want to leave our club because of the culture we’ve created.

“I never considered leaving and I’m thrilled to have locked away my long-term future here at Port Adelaide.”

Since debuting in Round 22 2017, Marshall’s development as a key forward has fast-tracked.

Known as a sharpshooter, Marshall kicked 36.16 from 21 games in 2023, finishing just behind Jeremy Finlayson as the club’s leading goal-kicker.

The tall and agile Marshall, having played alongside key forward Charlie Dixon for the duration of his career, has booted 138 goals from his 97 games.

Port Adelaide List Manager Jason Cripps said it was a focus to secure Marshall’s signature.

“We all know how important key forwards are, so to lock away Todd until the end of 2029 is very pleasing,” Cripps said.

“He has elite forward craft and his skills are excellent for a player of his size.

“Todd continues to grow as a leader and we think his best footy is still in front of him.

“He is a very important member of our young squad moving forward so to have him commit long-term is a huge positive for the club.”

Twenty-five year old Marshall arrived at Alberton with pick 16 at the 2016 AFL National Draft.

Twenty years after taking Port Adelaide to the top of the AFL tree, the Power’s 2004 premiership team has been inducted into the club’s Hall of Fame.

The side, which beat Brisbane by 40 points at the MCG, was recognised, along with four Port Adelaide past greats, at a gala event on Thursday night.

Players from that flag-winning team, including its acting captain Warren Tredrea, united on stage in Adelaide Oval’s Magarey Room with premiership coach Mark Williams.

In a special touch, 2004 Power skipper Matthew Primus was honoured with that group.

Primus missed the grand final due to a mid-year knee injury and instead watched on from an MCG coaches box before emotionally embracing teammates on the ground after the siren.

The event had a distinct 2004 flavour as premiership heroes Peter Burgoyne and Brendon Lade were also elevated into the Hall of Fame individually.

Port Adelaide’s reflection on the feats of its sole AFL grand final-winning team was a fitting way to launch a season in which the 2024 team hoped to follow a similar path.

The Power overcame finals disappointments from 2001-2003 before getting the ultimate prize, while Ken Hinkley’s side had fallen short in the major round in 2020, 2021 and last year.

Burgoyne links the past and present given his son Jase is part of this season’s squad.

He played 276 games (240 AFL, 36 SANFL) for Port Adelaide, starting with the Magpies before becoming part of the Power’s inaugural team in 1997.

Initially a small forward, Burgoyne starred in the 2004 flag as a midfielder, then reinvented himself as a half-back flanker in 2007 to help Port Adelaide reach another grand final.

Lade also rose from the Power’s first team to become a premiership winner.

The forward/ruckman arrived from South Adelaide and went on kick 182 goals from 234 matches.

A Kangaroo Island product, Lade was Port’s vice-captain from 2006-2008 and earned All-Australian honours in 2006 and 2007.

Burgoyne and Lade both retired in 2009.

Port Adelaide recognised a third member of its inaugural AFL squad – David Brown.

Brown won six SANFL premierships for the club, including as captain in the 1999 grand final triumph over arch rival Norwood, and claimed the Jack Oatey Medal in 1996.

The rugged midfielder was a member of the Magpies’ 1988 and 1989 premiership sides in his second and third seasons before joining the Crows’ initial squad.

Traded to the Power ahead of its debut campaign, Brown played in some of the team’s early milestones, including the first match against Collingwood and its breakthrough win versus Geelong.

Port delisted him after two seasons but he returned to skipper the Magpies.

The night’s other inductee was another six-time premiership winner Marx Kretschmer.

Kretschmer was a tough utility during a golden era for the club, lining up in the first five of the Magpies six consecutive grand final wins from 1954-59.

He also played in the 1951 flag success in his debut season.

Kretschmer was among Port’s best players in the 1955 and 1957 triumphs over the Redlegs.

He died in 2022.

Thursday night’s event, which was attended by about 550 people, featured members of the club’s Hall of Fame presenting the Power’s eight recruits their guernseys.

Think you can get 100-150 upstairs at the Precinct that's been open for a while now & then still the downstairs area. But the new facility that has just been opened isn't for the public, it's the players & coaches training facility.

Nor does it have a commercial kitchen.

The Precinct can host 300 for a seated event.
