So if you have stuff you don't want the public to see, you move them into that entity. It doesn't have to be dodgy, just don't want to reveal to everyone what is going on.
uh.

an entity like this not wanting the public to see what they're doing is 100% cast-in-stone dodgy

Olsen was before the Select Committee today. Most of this Indaily article is about the AO Hotel and political angle Liberals v Labor but it finishes off with this footy bit;

https://indaily.com.au/news/local/2019/03/26/olsen-faces-parliament-grilling-on-oval-plan/
SA-based AFL clubs Adelaide and Port Adelaide have previously declared they were kept in the dark about the hotel plan until after it was made public in the media, with both now pushing to have representatives on the SMA board. Olsen told the inquiry that suggestion had first been mooted as far back as 2014 in meetings with both clubs, the SMA and the AFL, but the notion was ruled out by then-AFL boss Andrew Demetriou.

He said Demetriou told the meeting ‘no, you’re getting your licences back, you’re getting a clean stadium… you two football clubs shouldn’t be exposed to risk’ because ‘you’ll be back to us, the AFL, to top it up’. “He said the AFL clubs should never be exposed to one dollar of risk at Adelaide Oval,” Olsen said.

He pointed out that the Crows and Port have 110 and 158 per cent uplift respectively at the Oval compared to their former Football Park home, saying: “Both those clubs get far more than they ever signed up for in the original proposal.”

From the people who brought you

"Let's rebrand Port Adelaide so it is not Port there will defnitely be a market for that"

We bring you

"The hotel could be sold if it is not a solid investment"

Yep I would be interested in something that is not a solid investment........ Please tell me more.
Perhaps I could interest them in a monorail?

So SMA don't employ staff at their ticket outlet because its the Ticketek computer/booking system not theirs.

Ticketek don't employ operators, they sub contract it out to a labor hire mob McArthur Recruitment.

"A representative from McArthur Recruitment confirmed a directive of this nature was in place for "at least" an hour...... The representative said the directive was given after a miscommunication between security guards and the box office supervisor, and that policies and procedures had changed in light of the incident."

That's why you get this shit. Responsibility being passed down the line because big companies do not want to employ people, they want to outsource as much as possible.

Pretty much.

Can't do the dirty work themselves or else they'd get caught with too much dirt on their hands.

Send in the mercenaries or disposables to do the work and claim ignorance

Where did the directive come from though? That’s the main question.
