That line about saving bricks to be re used in the new paths sounds familiar. I’m still waiting to see my paver installed from the last time they promised something similar πŸ˜‚.

I do like the look of this new stand. That’s the type of design that should have been built when they knocked over the old rooms.

Step two in Benny's goal of a 45k capacity stadium for AFLW Finals and RFC Mens home games for interstate clubs
Great idea. But maybe not all interstate teams Just play West Coast and Port Adelaide games there. Then watch twitter melt down

Have you had a look out the back of the
new facility they built? There’s a heap of plaques with peoples names on them, or did they just forget yours?

Looks great. Totally thought they were going to build a second training facility.

the underground parking is a great idea. another revenue stream added to the books
I imagine the car park will only be big enough for players and staff, can't imagine it being open to the public

I understand that the carpark could have the ability to take disability access patrons to the G on match day.

I don't mind that idea, but I'd have hoped the MCG had enough capacity for this already rather than needing to get from Punt Road Oval to the G

yeah probably. I think I was thinking of their car park plans when the Richmond precinct redevelopment was a possibility. I thought it was a good opportunity
