Agreed. Bellerive is one such great training site. Near the beach, along the seaside and near some of the richest places in Hobart (Tranmere).Why? This isn't Melbourne where it takes significant time to get from the city to the outskirts. Does it make that much difference driving 10 minutes to get to TCA or Bellerive or South Hobart?
Yes, the state government could take over if(when) the Hobart City council do their normal songsheet. They have shown a willingness to take on the council on big issues(like the Cable Car). But then perhaps another issue comes up. Some people from the North would hate that money being spent on another "southern" stadium.Excellent rant! And yeah, I know what you mean by the problem of self-serving, power tripping inner city greenie counsellors, who are universally useless at anything apart from the opportunities to be obstructive if not destructive. And don't get me started on the lemming who votes these loons in!
But in regards to this stadium, surely for an important project of this size, it would be a matter for the State Gov't to make the decisions and the local council would have little say in the matter. And as long as the project has overall statewide (or at least from Greater Hobart Area) popular support, the usual objections from the usual inner city BANANA suspects would be overcome - even more so when the State Gov't and Premier has now come out so publicly in the support of the AFL bid.
But it was touching to see the 3 major newspapers proclaim loyalty.
