    Tasmania Congratulations on Tassie License. Mens team to enter 2028. Womens team TBA. Other details TBA 3/5 (Part 2)

    20k is unders. This is Tasmania, where people love footy, It will be a full house every week. The Hawks averages over 15k for 15 years and you don’t think an actual Tasmanian team can pull 20K.

    As has been explained, this level of acts play places like Dunedin and Townsville, which is smaller and more isolated than Hobart. Of course they would play to 35k in a roofed stadium that eliminates risk of rain/weather problems.

    The logistic are straight forward. Marvel has had over 75k for concerts. Hobart is being built to allow for future expansion within the footprint to 40k. So they will have the access for that many people. For concerts you don’t get the half time surge for food/beverage/toilets. None of that is...

    Unofficial Preview Round 1, 2024: Bombers v Hawks, MCG 1:10pm Sat 16th March

    I still think that we need to play two tall defenders to free up Sicily, Weddle & Scrim to attack. Serong is the perfect matchup for Langford. B. Impey Frost Serong HB. Weddle Sicily Amon C. Ward Newcombe MacDonald HF. Ginnivan Lewis Hardwick F. Breust Chol Watson Foll. Reeves Nash Worpel IC...

    That won’t be a problem. 6% of Melbourne went to Taylor Swift on the weekend. And 20% of Townsville’s population is going to see Pink. There are about 250k - 300k within 2.5 hours drive of Townsville - about twice as many within same distance of Hobart. In small/regional markets you tend to have...

    Tasmania Congratulations on Tassie License. Mens team to enter 2028. Womens team TBA. Other details TBA 3/5 (Part 2)

    You can fit 20 - 22k on the grass in an AFL stadium. You lose some seats behind the stage, but you will get up to 35k - 40k for concerts. Maybe not Swift, but definitely Pink, U2, Bon Jovi, Springsteen, Billy Joel, Foo Fighters, etc. Even two per year would add $millions to the stadium bottom...

    That was 35 years ago! Pretty sure the MCG paid most of it. They have taken government loans to fund new stands. For the two new stands done in 2004 & 2006, MCC borrowed more the whole amount. The government wiped a $90m debt from the GSS At the same time. As part of the contract the AFL...

    Actually the MCG gets very little funding. It makes massive profits and pays for 90%+ of rebuilds, upgrades, etc.

    I really don’t know why the stadium needs a roof. That would knock off $200m and all this controversy goes away.

    Serong looked great in that club video . Good size, decent bodywork and a great fist. I would slot him in at FB. Has a footy brain as well.

    Short down back and forward. Bombers are a tall team. Need Serong or DGB so Sicily can float. Need Gunston or Ramsden forward. Can’t have just Lewis when Chol rucks.

    He failed to act. Failed to respond. He froze. That is choking.

    At least this will bring things to a head. The uncertainly will end soon after the election. Right?

    Not quite. The Western Stand, which was redeveloped in 2010, kept the facade and brickwork from the three original stands - one dates back to 1882. This was done before agreement was made to build new southern and eastern stands and move the footy back there. And the hill remains, so about 60%...

    That would cost more than doing it all at once. Right now it seems to be all about reducing costs. Perhaps the middle ground is leaving the southeast side of the stadiums as is (can even keep the school), and rebuild the north-east 40%/45% of the stadium in two stages: Stage 1 - demolish and...
