I wonder if the AFL has an opinion of a rectangular stadium in Cairns?

What a ridiculous waste of money.
My name is Dr. Worm.
Good morning. How are you? I'm Dr. Worm.
I'm interested in things.
I'm not a real doctor,
But I am a real worm;
I am an actual worm.
I live like a worm.
I like to play the drums.

It's just madness to build a stadium like that without a full time tenant.

A much more measured approach would be to rebuild the Barlow Park Grandstand closer to the action, almost right up to lane 8 like Olympic Park. Maybe even elevate the seating with the front row not at ground level to improve sightlines.
