The local and state members are both Greens and the Palaszczuk government and Greens are in a race to the death for the inner city seats.

I really can’t envisage a scenario where Palaszczuk will sit down with a local Green under any circumstances
Yeah, I know, but they're still elected representatives. I've become very disenfranchised with QLD ALP. Frequently b*tch and moan about Greens targetting inner-city seats then pull sh*t like against the desires of the electorate.

Will lions play at Metricon for a couple seasons?
The Lions are building a training and administrative base at Springfield the AFLW team are going to their home games their. It will be finished by the time they start to knock The Gabba down. It’s 10,000 capacity on nine news Brisbane the other day they said some Olympics events would be there the capacity would have to be put up to 20,000. Maybe the Men could play games their.

The Commonwealth Games are mickey mouse they don't rank with the Olympics. Sure they get decent media coverage but they don't absolutely dominate the media landscape like the Olympics.

Why did both AFL and NRL finish their seasons 2 weeks before the Sydney Olympics started?
No major sporting competition are allowed to be played during the olympics in the host country. It’s an IOC rule.

The relevant rule that I'm aware of doesn't mention "host country". Rather: "Host City itself, its neighbourhood or in the cities hosting other competition sites or their neighbourhoods".

Test cricket was played in Leeds (where no Olympic events were held, unlike Manchester or Cardiff) during London 2012, in accordance with such a requirement.

However, for what it's worth, I think the top Brazilian soccer league continued to play matches in Belo Horizonte and Sao Paulo etc during Rio 2016 within days of hosting Olympic competition at the same venues. Perhaps "prior written approval of the IOC" was granted in those instances.

Says who? The IOC - that doesn't make it the law of the land. Most nations sports organisations don't do it because they would be stupid to compete against the Olympics - you would be drowned out.

In USA in July and August there is no NHL, NBA or NFL seasons. However MLB played thru the Atlanta games between 19th July and 4th August 1996. Euro soccer competitions are closed in July and most of August.

I'm currently in WA working and my wife and kids are at home in Vic. They haven't had power for 2 days, no school today for the kids, no hot water, no fuel, no mobile coverage, $100s of dollars of food chucked out. It's been a sh*t 18 months in Vic and we're looking to move, this might get us over the line to shift to the Sunny Coast.

Very exciting.

I'd be 64 by the time the games came around, good time to maybe be retired or semi retired and just spend 2 weeks being a sports pig. Going to an Olympics is right up the top of my bucket list.

I could spend months, doing the logistics / planning of moving around between venues and regions and getting to as much as I could. Athletics, track cycling, boxing, handball, weightlifting, maybe some shooting, maybe mountain biking.
