How are the other clubs funded?

Maybe he is the other investor (or one of them) and is doing thorough due diligence while learning more of Club and will jump in when the league is independent.
Probably a more likely scenario than my story in the other thread.

There are many other possible predictions apart from the simple "we'll all be rooned", and they are far more interesting and exciting.

I’d love for that to be the case but with charlesworth already trying to be aloud to sell visa spots to benefit his own pocket I’d say it’s not the case.

Some big numbers being thrown around there. I'm also wondering what the deal is with the FFA chipping in $$ for marquee players?
Who is being helped out there, by how much?

Phoenix owned by a group who are all in the hundred millionaire mark and also control businesses like Wellington Airport, Vodafone nz, Canberra data centres, and a couple of power companies through infratil.

Western united are a bit merky as they're owned by property developers and sponsored by a construction company.

Adelaide United are owned by a group of European business men who are apparently quite successful but try and stay in the shadows.

Jets are owned by Martin Lee who's a Chinese billionaire, but he's got cash flow problems and it's hard to get the sort of money out of China that he needs to put in the club.

Victory are owned by a couple of business men who are worth 10s to 100s millions but that team makes a profit.

Probably no one this season, its only for really big and marketable names.

My dream is that FSG would buy CCM and create a similar feeder club situation to what we had with Sheffield United.

Because if there's one thing FSG have shown, it's that they take the right approach to ownership of sporting clubs. Operating CCM would be loose change for them compared to running LFC or the Sox.

We won't attract big market buyers. We either need a local consortium loaded to the hilt, or a team/group with experience in the small club done good. If you know baseball Tampa Bay Rays are an example.
