it will be interesting to compare to the images that AFL are releasing.
will the WAFL be getting a bit nervous or cocky at this point in time?
WA will be the last piece in the puzzle if you are talking WC stadiums. SA and WA are so similer in their needs it isn't funny, Subiaco and AAMI are roughly the same age and in similier condition while the WACA and AO are also in similer condition.
If the SANFL/SACA can come together after all these years, then you have to wonder if the WAFL/WACA can put away their differences and come up with a city stadium. But WA has one advantage, it is currently the richest state in Australia only rivalled by Victoria. Surely the WAFL/WACA saw what a great proposal the Adelaide Oval is that they will at least dicsuss it among themselves. $450m is the magic number, if the feds come in with $150m, then WA can easily raise $300m.
It is damn difficult to raise anything close to $400m in the commercial world for anything, even real estate developments. So anything approaching $1billion is a vote killer, especially if it is for s sports stadium.
