How can it be a spectator's venue in the future when they keep pulling down grandstands? Notice how in this article they don't tell you what stand they are pulling down...it just appears like a magic mushroom! varooom! built!
What happens if they want to attract 20,000 punters to a match? Sorry we have a gymnasium where there once was a grandstand.

What a waste of money.

Build your AFLW or WAFL or whatever it is somewhere on the outside of the ground. Isn't there parkland or some of the car park area they could use and then build an underground car park? I don't get the logic, but by this time...whatever.

But at least it makes politicians and bureaucrats feel happy. Look at all their smiling faces in the photos.

At least they are beaming with self-importance. Politicians doing what politicians do with the aid of people who are paid a lot of money to make poor decisions.

They are happy, so we're happy.

I'm not sure how demolishing grandstands equates to redevelopment.

Like what MLG has done on the finance side of the business - debt reduction, etc.
Have to say, there is some smoke and mirrors regarding this announcement however, as I can't see how a stadium that cannot house 25k+ supporters cab be called a home for AFLW. The AFL will not hesitate to move games to Marvel asap!!!!

I agree Surrey. It's just nasty - a plan to stop us playing home games at our spiritual home ground. Man, still can't believe George W Bush got inaugurated for his second term only a week ago. Time flies.

You my friend spend too much time looking back and not the future.

I think you’ll find it’s actually smoke and shadows behind the window
