Re: State of Origin

WA also had a couple of nominees for book week. One kid with black makeup went as Nic Naitanui, and another had a powdered up nose to be Ben Cousins.

Re: Memorial Drive

Would be a waste if it did. AEC has always been considered a bit of a (necessary) white elephant, so the competition would hurt. And they extended the tram so it terminates at the AEC now so seems a bit of a waste. I wonder what happens to ETSA Park and the Powerhouse. Not sure what development pote...

I feel like a bit of an old fart talking about this place, but yes, that tennis court next to the Adelai...

Original plans had the capacity at 54k, which involved curtaining off swathes of grandstand. In response to strong demand they're now going for 60k. T...

Re: 2015 NSW election aftermath, what does it mean for stadiums?

It's sydney fc. What don't they whinge about?
