    Maybe a redeveloped Brookie could host the SOO?  Then again WSC will still be arguing over its impact on the local traffic management plan.

    Typical scare mongering over the world game.....

    The AFL would not have to shut down for a season (at worst the MCG would be unavailable for 6-8 weeks dependent on the final)

    If, and it is a massive if, we manage to win the world cup the legacy of improved facilities etc will far outweigh minor disruption
