    For anyone who can read financial docs better than me: would be interested to see what rent we pay for the Gabba and how that compares to other teams, because a couple of years ago it was being reported that we pay way higher rent than other teams (for worse facilities). The story kind of...

    Miles appears a bit better at reading the room than AP so I'm hopeful for a more common sense solution.

    The cynic in me would suggest they just get the "expert" advice tailored to what result they want. As Sir Appleby says in Yes Minister, "never set up an inquiry unless you know in advance what its findings will be."

    Miles said what, 3 independent studies have already said knocking down/rebuilding is the best option, what is a 4th one going to say? And if it's any different to the first three then what quality was that advice?

    I also like this quote from Miles though as the former Premier seemed to regard us as an afterthought

    When they first refurbished it Kevin Sheedy said they didn't build the capacity big enough, turns out he was right.

    Michael Vaughan in town for the Big Bash, the other night he basically said 'why are they thinking of knocking this stadium down? It's great' If I was the new Premier I would be saying, come up with an option that doesn't involve knocking the stadium down and rebuilding it.

    Brisbane Mayor has quit the Brisbane 2032 Games delivery forum (whatever that is) and withdrawn support for redeveloping the Gabba and heavily criticised the state government. Have to say the state government has gone from disaster to disaster at the moment, can anyone have any confidence for...

    I have been down there half a dozen times since the Suns started - each time I drove and caught the train. Thanks for the extensive information firstly. The fact that this has ended up being the so called best option just shows what a disaster this whole thing has become. You said yourself that...

    There'd have to be a car park down there, can't see myself getting the train and bus down there every fortnight for 4 years.

    100% correct. On the news they said Lions and the Lord Mayor were advised at 4.30pm in the evening before the first thing in the morning announcement this morning. This government can't communicate, nor plan or organise anything.

    Love the idea but i don't think its fair the government is asking the club to put up so much money for a temporary solution.

    It's all overhyped nonsense, I was watching it briefly last night, one bloke was a mix between Dusty Martin and Kozzy Pickett and the next was a mix between Lachie Neale and Tom Green. What a draft class!!

    Thats a myth if you ask me, compare our attendances when we were down, to the bottom Vic teams at the time (in games vs interstate teams), they aren't all that different.

    Lions 3 trips in 23 and 24 Let’s say 4 to 1. Still lots. Is pretty crazy to have away games against all four of those teams

    Pies did pretty well with only 1 trip to WA and none to SA (not counting Gather Round where we all travel apart from the local teams).

    Prediction 2024 Fixture Predictions

    Not counting gather round where we all travel: Pies 1 trip to WA and 0 to SA (to play Port or Adelaide), we have 4 (away games vs both SA and WA teams).

    We're a chance to sell out every game at the Gabba except for the GWS one I reckon.

    Prediction 2024 Fixture Predictions

    Broadly speaking the harder games are at home so if we play well we have a chance to really go well. I don;t think it's as hard as rated.

    Prediction 2024 Fixture Predictions

    3 trips to Adelaide again, why? 2 trips to Perth. Pretty rough. I'd be surprised if any other team has 5 trips to SA and WA. QClash Sunday night before the QLD Public Holiday is well overdue though.
