In fairness mate. We have had an election since that announcement. The chicken littles returned him in a canter. The public generally doesn’t care about pub money going into venues. End of the day they do get the benefit of the upgraded facilities when they attend. Rightly or wrongly on the idea of the gov stumping for private facilities / The people who live here had a chance to have a whack, they really don’t care. Also gotta say, the precinct is a bloody diabolical mess. I work literally 500 metres from the ground at the moment and the whole area is the most poorly designed dog shit area you could ever imagine. I’d have more sympathy for the idea personally if the gov would stand up to the AFL when it comes to the topic of moving in the stands when leagues played there. Policy has always been a joke. Could count on one hand the number of games I’ve attended with the stands in. & that was prior to the change of ownership. —————- Re: The Grand Final that had some comments made, yeah nothing to do with the Marvel upgrade. How much the gov stumped who knows but was a part of a deal that will result in an MCG upgrade. It can be a tedious place to get out of on the days it’s packed. Particularly when the whole crowd leaves at once. Anyone who has attempted to walk around the rail side of the ground post the last 2 origins can attest to that. Utter madness. Although last year was better than the previous one. I think Timmah braved that mess this year from memory, he can tell you what it’s like.
