So the promoters who are supporting the proposal are just giving the government bad advice for fun?

when you say “supporting” what form does that take?

I’ve no opinion either way, but supporting a proposal has different levels of commitment

think of bacon and eggs for breakfast:
The chicken is involved but the pig is commmitted.

I can’t find the article but it was the promoters stating it would attract artists that have bypassed Adelaide. Some on here have been stating the opposite.

just saying stuff is pretty low in terms of commitment though

For me I am 100% all in on Brompton.

I'm just not sold on Thebarton and never have been, it's about to located next to an expressway and we'd be putting ourselves back in a position where we're tenants and playing second fiddle to the SANFL.

I would rather us being in complete control over our facilities and our destiny. After going there and seeing what they've done with Plant 4 and the development of that site I think we'd fit in there perfectly and there is a massive amount of public space etc for events and a huge amount of potential.

I will be gutted if we end up being stuck at Thebarton because it will more than likely come with a raft of compromises.

This is most probably the one and only opportunity to get it right so hopefully things fall our way.
For me this is my concern when it comes to Thebby. Dont want to have the SANFL influencing our ability to run our affairs.

What happened to the Aquatic Centre option? Scuttled by the council? Or COVID??

For me, Thebarton is ok but a distant second and only if the existing deals are re-done to have us as the lead or some agreement where we are equal with the SANFL.

I really don't like the idea of us going there and having them over us, especially no SANFL get the bar at AFLW matches or Crows having to pay them money to use the ground for AFLW games, I'd be asking for the option of SANFL home games and drop the yearly fee too.

If the decision hasn’t been made how can there be intel?

We have previously said we expect to know this year so you’d think this week if it’s going to happen.

Surely the Renewal SA staff involved with the decision started leave yesterday?

No doubt in my mind the decision has been made. Just going through the announcement/Gazette process.

Gazette is released each Thursday. One scheduled 23rd.

I believe there will be one for the 30th

I reckon the result of the Tender will be announced in one if these, with a Club release soon after.

Lol

I bet they missed the Gazette timeline.


Next Gazette Jan 6.



Funny how this delay is made known today. No doubt media outlets waiting on Gazette release today.
