This has probably been brought up before but with suburban grounds continuing to get upgrades is there any change Wests will change their stadium deal to a 50/50 split between campbell town and leichardt? They may not have the facilities of ANZ but they would be cheaper to run and have a lower break even point...
In many cases they lose money at suburban grounds because ANZ offers big cash advances to play there, you don't have to hire a big screen or floodlights AND there are more corproate facilities to sell at ANZ.
That said, the upgrades are making games at suburbsn grounds more financially viable. Clubs like WT SHOULD come to the party and increase games in the suburbs. Otherwise, the investment in upgrades made by the taxpayer is money down the drain.
