Here's an interesting article when you consider Manly's situation: Italian Football superpowers, Inter and AC Milan are threatening to move away from their home ground, the San Siro, and they are seeking to build a new stadium on the edge of the city. Rossoneri vice-president Adriano Galliani confirmed that they seeking a move away from the San Siro, stating the reason why for this move was: ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã…Â“To compete with the likes of Manchester United and Bayern Munich.ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬? ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã…Â“At the moment we raise ÃƒÂ‚Ã‚Â£15 million from playing at the San Siro, Manchester United earn ÃƒÂ‚Ã‚Â£80 million and Bayern Munich now will receive ÃƒÂ‚Ã‚Â£35 million from their new stadium.ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬? ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã…Â“The San Siro has 15 executive boxes, when the modern stadia holds 150. To generate strong returns you need a stadium that meets the demands of sport today.ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬? Nerazzurri President Giacinto Facchetti also confirmed the move, adding: ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã…Â“We are also thinking of leaving. It's something we've been discussing for a long time.ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬? Would it be fair to say that Brookvale Oval is one of the worst catered NRL grounds for corporate boxes? And consider teams that have moved from suburban grounds to big stadia. Yes the fans bemoan the emptiness of playing in big places but the harsh reality is that the money is made from selling product to the suits. And the way this club is headed, it's just about fair enough to say that they're doing everything in their power to alienate that demographic (if our experience as a web-site is any guide). So enjoy your atmospheric Sunday afternoons kiddies (though there's only atmosphere when Manly is winning). It might just be slowly killing the club.
