Why not indeed. At least the Tassie games should be played there.

I wonder how many cherrypickers might magically appear in strategic places around the ground should that happen?
I am wondering if we can do something like that for the AFLW? I saw some richmond supporters sitting on cars at Punt road last weekend. Anyone know if Arden Street has an opportunity for such vantage points?

Surely they’ll need to use less than half the number anyway to keep the numbers under the government requirement?

Interesting point.

44 players + ~30 coaches, trainers & medical staff + 6 media dickheads + the media crew (10?), and then scoreboard staff and lighting is pushing it close.

What is the distancing requirements of the 100 people?

Well I suspect that Snake's idea is based on the theory that it will give us a home ground advantage. We certainly lose some of that if those games we would normally play in Tassie don't go ahead there.
Not sure I agree. What home ground advantage do we have at Arden Street? How many AFL games have we won there?

Whereas in Hobart, no one has figured out how to win there more than we have.
