Those events would be a major financial disaster for us. Do not want
Considering that the Victorian government are about to embark upon some $80 billion to build roadways, freeways, underground rail links, the airport to city rail, and the outer ring railway project in addition to the ongoing need to provide investment in replacement of power stations, schools and hospitals over the next 30 years to prepare Melbourne for 8 million people and Victoria for at least 11 million. I think that the last thing that we need is to host a $8 billion, two-week long piss-up for the rest of the world. ;)

Besides the AOC are well documented in their belief that Melbourne is the least suitable of Australia's cities to host an Olympics by virtue of its seasons and their non-alignment with the Northern Hemisphere. They have openly backed Brisbane to host.

Melbourne doesn't need putting on the world map, it's already there by virtue of the Oz Open, the F1 Grand Prix, and the Spring Racing Carnival. In about ten years time it will likely overtake Sydney as the biggest city and in about 20 years time it will re-assume the mantle of the country's financial capital, a title that it lost in the late 1960s.

Why increase the capacity of a ground that only gets sold out 5 times a year?

Just like people saying Optus Stadium should be expanded, it hasn't even been filled to capacity once.
