That's what I don't get. There is a plethora of pubs in the city the club could organize something through to replace the GDV. People would go there, all they'd have to do is negotiate with a pub. Why they haven't done this I don't know.
Last year after the game I called into the bar at the Casino where I paid $10 for a pint. It was a craft porter beer but it still cost more than a beer in the
ground. I have also had beer in a couple of the bars and pubs around the Riverbank and North Terrace and they were not that much cheaper than drinking in the ground. If you are going to pay $8.50 to $9 a pint you may as well drink at the ground.
People suggesting venues in the CBD do not really appreciate what we have lost. The GDV virtually emulated what we had at Alberton. An easily accessible bar during, before and after the game with cheap beer where the bulk of the profit went back to the PAFC. Emulating that is no easy task.
