What they should have done with Parramatta Stadium was get rid of the open seats at the ends and replaced them with roofed stands, then refurbished the existing stands to incorporate new media and corporate facilities (and a new Des proof away team change room door ). Capacity could have still been around 25-30k and it could easily have been done at about a third of the cost of building Wankbest.She has lost the plot completely.
SFS and Parra should have never been rebuilt, refurbished at massive savings would have been smarter.
The SFS.....too many influential SCG Trust members have vested interests in wanting a new stadium built, including I dare say some NSW members of parliament. The words "conflict of interest" definitely comes to mind with this one.
One thing I can't understand for the life of me is why the re-build of ANZ is going to eventually reduce capacity from its current 83,500 to around 70-75k. Why would they make it smaller for crying out loud? I can understand turning it into a rectangle venue with the AFL and cricket no longer being played there, but surely they could do it while keeping the capacity at around 80,000 or more.
You'll never see the Victorian government and MCC tearing down the MCG as it currently is and re-building it with a reduced capacity.
