For clarity, I should have said 11 extra Thursday Docklands time slots ie Vic. home team games switched to Thur. night. NMFC & HFC will be playing 8 more home games in Melb. (but NMFC will probably want to sell some home games interstate). I am suggesting some Docklands daytime weekend games will be switched to the more lucrative, Prime Time Thur. nights.Yet in post 1111 you again talk about 11 extra games at Docklands. I Don’t get it
As per my post #1122, Tasmania will likely play all its 11 home games, during the day, on either Sat. or Sun., supplanting time slots already used in Victoria on the weekend.
The AFL, to maximise viewing audiences & broadcast $, wont want Tas. home games on weekends played concurrently with weekend day games in Victoria (MCG games won't be switched, as it is legally bound to hold a minimum no. of MCG games). It is these Docklands daytime games that will be switched to the far more lucrative, Prime Time Thur. nights- new time slots are required when Tas. enters.
Re Bellerive expansion, see my post #823.
I said previously the streets adjoining the hill side, together with private houses, would need to be compulsorily acquired, by the Tas. govt to build the new stand etc. On match days, no private parking will be permitted in nearby streets, so buses can park there- including all the way to Clarence St.
Macquarie Point, capacity 30,000, costing c. $360,000,000 is simply too expensive for 6 games pa.
