Bellerive is already ~10% the size of the local population...That's HUGE. (by comparison, the new Perth stadium is ~2%, and those saying it should be bigger wanted ~3%). It's not the ground size that's the problem.I only said 20,000 because you mentioned that as a number somewhere - and the fact that it's the current capacity of Bellerive oval. With stadium expansion, they'll get more than that if it's a reasonable game (maybe not against GWS or GC). The state government has already committed to supporting it - in case you were unaware. The startup cash will be there. Sponsors will get on board - they'll have national cameras on them with the coverage. There are national companies down here, you know. Your idea that there are barely 2 pennies to rub together down here is total BS. There is money. A Tassie team will pull its weight. Why do you need it to do more than that?
If the money is so good, feel free to explain how they'll raise over $40M locally....
