I think most people will agree that now really isn't the time to upgrade the stadium but its good to be talking about it with the GWS and Thunder only getting bigger. I'd say see how the next two seasons go crowd wise for both footy and cricket then plan from there, 2020 would probably be about the right time to start construction
Well 2020 is the T20 World Cup so i imagine they might be upgrading for then at the latest.

Actually pretty neutral

I would expect that to be played at Gabba SCG MCG Adelaide and Perth Stadium. It doesn't use a whole heap of venues. Possibly Hobart and Canberra. This year's only used seven grounds.

Fair to say the $150+ tickets priced a lot of the casuals out.

Interesting to see how GWS go with their first home game next year with the exposure of the Sydney Derby finals win + going close in a Prelim that was the 2nd most watched game outside of a Grand Final ever + decent ticket prices.

Same pricing next time will see it full.
Reckon GWS should host doggies in Rnd 1.

Good stadium this. Was meant to have the worst seats (cat 5) but row J, level 1, behind the goals, can't complain especially when it's filled with travelling dogs fans ;)

I joked that instead of seven footy competing with better homes and gardens. They will merge with it

I love how Brian Lake is into the specials at Coles and Woolies. Bloke was on 200k for ten years and still worries about the two for $4 Tim Tams offer.
