    the problem with suburbanism is exactly that. Why would a youngster in anywhere other than the peninsula want to support manly? It has no relevance to them and has historic baggage.
    No just changing a name will make no difference, it needs to be a much more sophisticated business plan than that!

    Yes and unfortunately an NRL club would not bother with the hard work. So Manly to stay smallburban.

    We get to see if the Cowboys Stadium can handle a storm.

    Manly should forget about getting grandstands at Brookvale and just try to get bigger hills so they have a higher capacity. That would not cost much.

    It’s lipstick on a pig, the new stand won’t fix any of it’s problems.

    It’s gonna need a knock down rebuild to fix any of it’s problems.

    Assuming the whole northern end will be closed off for this season at least. They really should consider playing a few games at CC while this is being done.

    Oh, I completely agree. The place is a dump and an embarrassment to professional sport in the 21st century. I'm just providing the updates.

    The location is the worst part of it. It’s not even in a suburb, it’s more in someone’s back yard.

    I wasn't having a go at you mate, just pointing out what a waste of time and money the upgrade is.

    The saddest thing is that the upgrade will probably prevent any real investment into rectangular stadiums in North Sydney for at least the next couple of decades, which means that Manly have little hope of building a sustainable business any time soon.

    If the clubs were run by savvy business people they'd be looking to relocate, but they aren't so the club will just wither on the vine unless they find angel investors to prop them up.

    Yep. I bet they have benches rather than seats as well.

    No roof, no seats. How much could be saved. If they made Bankwest without a roof and with benches rather than seats how much would it have cost?
