Add in the Brisbane Live venue at Roma St and the connectivity between the venues that Cross River Rail offers and you start to have something pretty impressive.
In terms of the Lions and AFL well they can suffer in there jocks they have had benefits off the government all across the country with facilities and stadiums.
