  1. Western United broke through the 2,000 member barrier. They aren't far behind what we got before our 1st season.
  2. I'm guessing JT's interview with Kevin Airs was driven by the state of WSW membership renewals?? I have friends in Campbelltown who aren't renewing and quite a number who had never committed to any A-League club that are intending to join up to the Bulls.

  4. Wembley wasn't renovated. It was demolished and replaced with a modern stadium built to the same basic architectural program as all other modern stadiums. Using your terminology it is a "generic" football stadium that was given the old stadium's name. The MCG is known to the cricket world but does that make it world famous? It's quite a poor stadium when you compare it to most large modern stadiums. It is also totally unsuitable for watching all rectangular pitch sports. The 50,000 seat Great Southern Stand which is only 8 years older than ANZ Stadium is already funded for replacement but that work will probably follow the $225m upgrade to Etihad Stadium that also has state Government funding approved. Why would the upgrade of one stadium negate the need to upgrade the other? The original stadium strategic plan was quite clear in setting the need for 4, and eventually 5, Tier 1 stadiums each sized to different capacities so that a suitable stadium was available for all major sports events with the ability for major events to be held at a suitable sized stadium for the event. - The curtain at Allianz isn't happening, - the roof at ANZ is vital if the venue is to cover its O&M costs (Millennium Stadium in Cardiff used to make annual profits based on 8 sporting events per year due to it's roof and back of house facilities), - the major issue being dealt with at ANZ are viewing distances and sight lines which are the purpose of rectangularisation and steeper stands that will result in a hugely improved atmosphere for the fans, - spending on suburban grounds should have been happening all along but it's a different issue to the need for a generational improvement at major venues. - BWS wasn't needed all that was required was completion of the 4 stages that would have increased capacity to 27,000 plus corporates at less than a third of the cost of BWS. It's nice to have though. When you look at this 1 in 30-50 year spend on stadia it's a relatively small amount and the constant cry about spending it on schools, hospitals and transport fails to acknowledge that year after year governments have spent at record levels on these assets and will continue to do so while ever population growth is so high. A quick calc shows that the spend on these stadiums will be about 0.8% of the capital spending by the state over the next 30 years.

  6. Looks fantastic plus the ACL trophy is unique in Australian football.
  7. I should have said in my previous post that although the comparison is correct by date the figures for this season are 1 week closer to season kick off than last season's figures.

  9. If anything making the roof smaller would make it more like Levi's Stadium which doesn't have a roof.

    There was an article by Ben Horne about it the other day. They were saying that GWS was doing better than St George and Cronulla. What is the point of comparing yourself to clubs that operate in a different market?
  11. The roof is normally of the order of 10-12% of total costs of the stadium so if a fancy design has it coming out at say 15% it's worth considering a change.
  12. There are some changes to the design of the new SFS. Smaller roof is one of them. https://www.smh.com.au/national/nsw/new-sydney-stadium-will-not-see-a-return-of-silent-movies-20190902-p52n7x.html

  14. The Stajcic issue is finished. They paid him out and they paid him compensation. All that is needed now is to ensure the policies, processes and board reporting requirements are correct going forward and a review by this independent committee will canvas what happened when it drafts its recommendations to the board.
  15. The Board agreed to an independent review when there was a widespread call for one so why the complaint from everyone? I agree a well run organisation would have these policies and processes written and they might even have them but no one wanted an internal review and an "our processes are documented and we followed them" response would have gone down like a lead balloon at the time even if it is correct.
