Another reason why he is a fool. He chose to gamble that there would be more than 23,000 and he lost. Just for the record, another failure to add to his CV. If he was smart, he would grant the gate takings of semi final games to teams that are higher on the ladder, leading to a grand final at ANZ. Let each club gamble whether they want to move their home ground to a larger venue. Why does he have a right to take that gamble at all? Whether or not the NRL grants to each club increase or not, the NRL or the commission should allow teams to host games wherever they want until the grand final. Then it's up to our club to secure a backer to transform Brookie into a 30,000 showpiece stadium.
