That strikes me as grasping for straws.New Penrith stadium could have Tigers Bulldogs play 2 games each a year vs out off Sydney teams. Better then the out off Sydney teams playing at Accor In front off 10 000 fans. As if the tigs an dogs dont have fans out that way also. Being 2 games each most likely draw 15000 to 20000 thousand each game. Its all about atmosphere .
no one should get a 600 million 30K seater if they're the only tenantsSo who should get one?
With a city of 6 mil and multiple rectangular sporting codesAnnounced what? That they reneged or postponed their future funding? The major stadiums have multiple tenants and that is what governments spend money on. They aren’t going to spend money on nine individual suburban grounds and if the alternative to the SFS or similar is something like Leichhardt Oval I don’t blame them.
Stuff best plans. Why should Penrith be shafted to benefit the Shire or the North Shore!
Penrith deserve a stadium more than any other club in the NRL.
The argument that only one tenant means you cant justify a new stadium is rubbish.
You can’t get commitment to events without a venue but you can’t get that venue unless you get commitment to events.
By this measure there will never be a new stadium built in NSW!
Even if they did it wouldn’t be because of the reason you said as that situation hasn’t changed since the initial announcement.

There will always be a need to maintain or upgrades venues across the city
There are stands that are nearly 50y old that need to be addressed
Leichhardt Oval stand, Brooky main grandstand are two obvious older RL upgrades. And these were older than the SFS
You just cant fence off these public assests
Just like roads and bridges are upgraded
They can'tSo where do they get a second tenant?
Round and round in circles again!
