There were actually quite a few Raiders fans who got their noses out of joint when the CFMEU were the major sponsor for a few years - boycotting jersey purchases etc.
Good team Raiders, CFMEU were far more palatable than the now Chinese spy sorry telco.

While the delay makes sense as funding and planning takes a long time. The build has now been cut from 11 months to 5, that's a lot of time to take out of the process.
I think you may need to re-read my post, it was an update from an earlier one. Build time is still a couple of years not a couple of months.

Starts 20 Jul 2020
Expected end 19 Dec 2022

Thats still 2 1/2 years of build time. 30 Months seems reasonable for a project this size.

With the announcement of the additional funding from the federal opposition if they win the election it looks like the project may be picking up steam!

Do you happen to know if it will be a staged opening. For example, will we have access to certain facilities early on but other areas (e.g. community sporting club courts) will be opened later?

The company I work for only covers information up until the start of construction. Once the first piece of work is underway we no longer research further into the project. So that sort of information probably wont come across my desk unfortunately. I may see an occasional tender notification as we get closer to construction but that's about it.

My bad, read the end as 19 dec 2020 for some reason.

Jeff looking genuinely shocked with the results tonight. Politics aside, a pretty shitty result for the club.
Not necessarily, the Libs have deliberating avoided being extravagant with promises of this nature.
Once the dust settles they may look at any submission and assist.

What is really wrong is how much money the Geelong redevelopment keeps getting from government.
Contrary to promises of a BBL team and a national soccer team playing out of the stadium
not coming to fruition.

They ain’t giving $20m to a Labor electorate after an election.

no they will give money to the sporting club with the former Liberal Premier as President.

They give federal money to all the sporting clubs when they go asking for it, we will get money from them.

It might be 10 or 15 not 20 but we will get cash

Come on. This is Jeff you’re talking about. You don’t think Jeff has a plan B?
When Jeff's on tv last night, pale as can be saying "I didn't see Liberals winning this one in a million years", then I'm not sure that he would have had a plan b. This was an Albanese pet project, this will have significant ramifications with the project,

That’s $20M lost for a $135M project. Wouldn’t think that’s a show stopper though. The Cats were also promised $20M for their stadium upgrade. It’ll still get done.
