    I'm hoping for a Kenny Edwards Bar....

    It's amazing how quickly things go from "pile of dirt and a few beams" to looking like an actual construction these days.

    I live in an area where this is incredible growth as far as housing goes. Both single dwelling and units. Years ago I worked in construction labour and the speed of which they throw them up these days is astonishing. Concrete slabs are built on after a week or so and the materials that go into a dwelling are cheap as. You wont see any of these joints heritage listed in the future as they will crumble well before being eligible.

    They’re going to destroy your view when they finish the terracing in the stands.

    They should leave the crane and we could dangle Gould from it on opening night.

    No they won't. The season won't align for them.
    The Eels will play there first, but yes, you'd think the way we are going, Parra would be trying their hardest to generate interest for next season, as this year is toast.

    A question for you Suit - you know more about building than me.

    When I kind of visited the site the other day I noticed the grandstand roofing is a canvas type material which appears to almost being sown together. Is that right?

    Also I noticed this roof material dips to be anchored to the posts below it - but wouldn't that fill up with water? How does it drain away? Sorry if this is a dumb question and maybe I didn't look close enough but It had me scratching my head. I also may not be explaining this too well but I think you know what I mean if you saw it.

    Looking f**king great by the way.
