Re: Telstra Stadium to become ANZ Stadium

Maybe they should only move forward one side for most NRL games. The expected crowd for 80% of them wouldn't justify moving both sides in anyway. They can even rig it so all the crowd sits on that side and have the cameras on the other, giving the impression of a half decent crowd.

Adelaide United is the latest A-League club to fall into financial difficulties with revelations emerging the club is unprofitable and behind on payments.

Re: Beginning of the end for suburban NRL stadiums?

You're correct, but you could make the same argument about taxpayers. For instance, why would I want to see my tax dollars be spent building a 40k seat stadium in Penrith that I'll never go to? It is the same argument. You then go to an election and decide if the people that spent your money deserv...
