[COM] Re: U/C: Adelaide Oval Redevelopment | 53,500 | $545m

I agree that the Northern Stand probably wont be built for a long time. I do however think that some kind of temporary stand just for the football season will used on part of the hill in years to come. I remember sitting in the Edrich Stand next to the media centre at Lords and thinking that somethi...

[DEF] Re: AAMI Stadium to recieve a $100million facelift

As embarrasing as it is I can put up with AAMI stadium for another 5 - 10 years. However what can't stand is the current lack of vision that involves wasting the most prime waterfront real estate in South Australia on a Hospital. Built the new hospital but save the railyards for a stadium in 5 - 10 ...

Re: Poll pledge: Libs would bid for 2018 Commonwealth Games

The Advertisers plans are quite good, but unfortunately it includes a stadium that isn't truly multipurpose. Adelaide has a poor history of building specialised infrastructure scattered around the suburbs - when it should be one multipurpose venue centrally located. AFL, A League, 20/20 Cricket and...

Re: Poll pledge: Libs would bid for 2018 Commonwealth Games

It would be fantastic to see an international event of this scale held in Adelaide - it would bring in great money before and after the event. We would also get plenty of grants from the government just as Melbourne did. It completely transformed the MCG. Unfortunately it won't happen here as they i...

Re: #VIS: Inner-City Stadium/Riverbank Precinct

Gutter trash journalism! Mike Rann / Leigh Wicker you are both pathetic and have screwed over your city. What a joke – just another reason for a skilled young person to leave Adelaide! Our only hope will be when the baby boomers drop off. Then maybe - we could resemble something other a run down ret...

Re: #VIS: Inner-City Stadium/Riverbank Precinct

I agree - I would have also gone to the game tonight if it were in the city. On quite a few Friday nights it would have been great to have a meal in one of the many Pubs in the CBD after work then stroll down to City West to watch the game. As it is - forget it. I would be happy to pay a combined Ul...

[DEF] Re: AAMI Stadium to recieve a $100million facelift

Given the poor location of AAMI, I don’t think a tram line from the city will help all that much, as it will get swamped and will not be able to cope. Just look at the current problems with the Glenelg line during rush hour. It would be a disaster! A central city location would ease the pressure o...
