You're very predictable beatup!!! But it really does take some really special kinda special guy to get some sort of pleasure out of an issue like this at a time this. And yep......................you're that special guy beatup!!!!!!!!

I suspect the rebuild will be done at some more suitable time in the future. You can then start your squealing, whining,jealously based idiocy all over again pal!!!!!!!
I'm happy today.

The AFL requested ANZ Stadium stay in oval configuration for the AFL's and cricket's needs in Sydney. We can still play blockbusters and finals at Sydney's biggest stadium and the NSW taxpayers like myself are saved from a monumental waste of our hard earned dollars. Great result for all, particularly sports in NSW. :thumbleft:

Oh and cheer up pal. We just got to learn to share the infrastructure in Sydney.
Good on ya pal!!!!!!! I don't anyone else that is actually applauding the consequences of the corona virus. You sure are one of a kind!!!! Maybe you can now pray for a second wave for some perverse reasoning. Personally I'm quite happy the RL is back and C-19 is on the run. But that's just me pal!!!!!!
Oh settle petal. This has nothing to do with corona virus for me. It was a monumental waste of taxpayer dollars to begin with... well before COVID-19 and would have resulted in a denial of access for Australia's 2 national sports in the AFL and Cricket - denying them access to the biggest stadium in Sydney.

Calm the farm pal. This is a good outcome. All sports can continue to use the wonderful Olympic Stadium and the funds saved can now be put towards more worthy job creating projects that actually stack up in a business case sense.

Everyone wins :thumbleft:

Haha beatup!!! If I was any calmer I'd be asleep pal!! Personally at this point in time it's not a big issue. I do however find it rather perverse that folk like you are cheering a decision that you perceive to benefit your fave sport and disadvantage another. Particularly when that decision was made due to a one in a hundred year pandemic that is killing people!! Strange pal........very strange. But that's fumble fans for ya!!!!!!!

In any case it will happen down the track and in the meantime will have no adverse effect on RL & will not assist your fumbling game in any meaningful way. I mean your fave fumblers broke a contract to get away from the joint they hated it so much. But by all means continue to applaud the C-19 effects if it makes ya feel good pal!!!!!!

Gees that's rich coming from you. This very thread is filled with posts from leaguies cheering the original refurb decision that would ultimately deny oval sports like the AFL and cricket access to Sydney's biggest stadium. :roll:

I've no doubt that AFL and Cricket officials will be pleased to still have the option of playing blockbusters and in particular finals at ANZ Stadium.

Again great result for all sports and fans in NSW. :thumbleft:

Be interesting to see what deal is done with government

I suspect premier and NRL have decided on some alternative, being stadium rebuild few years down track.
Or compensation.. for period until upgrade.

Good 'ol boy beatup is on fire with his latest effort. No doubt he'll be hoping and praying for C-19 breakouts in Sydney, Brisbane, Newcastle, Canberra etc etc just to make it hard for RL. Whadda guy!!!!!! It's times like these you truly realise the deep seated hatred & jealousy fumble fans have deep inside 'em. Sick stuff!!!!!

I couldn’t care either way ... in fact it seems logical to make it rectangles as I thought afl didn’t use it? My issue was that the nrl never seem to put in any money to these things. I think they should contribute a little at least. But it’s a crap stadium I hear ...been once and it was packed out but took two trains to get there and nothing much happening outside stadium ... so why not fix it up for rugby and soccer but each code should contribute. But think they also need to fix up the public transport and do something with the outside as seemed nothing but the Hilton when I went.

Yep. It'll happen down the track. I mean who could make an issue of diverting funds to a post corona virus infrastructure fund at a time like this? Oh yeah..........fumble fans could!!! Because they hope and pray it will damage RL in some way. It's a sad sad society we live in when there are views like this.

I welcome the spend on a C-19 rebuild. Well done Gladys. The ANZ rebuild will have to wait for a more suitable time. And it will happen!!

Pretty much spot on.

Alot infrastructure projects are getting redirected or privatized over others ..
During this time..

May work out better, with a total knock down and rebuild

I guess the 2020 NRL grand final can now be played at ANZ Stadium rather than the SCG. Does that mean the NSW Government is entitled to a return of the $15 million compensation payment made to the NRL last year? What exactly would the NRL need to be compensated for now that ANZ Stadium is still available? Hmmm
But he said the decision was based on short-term pain, which reportedly includes a $15 million payment from the NSW government to compensate the NRL for hosting the grand final at smaller capacity stadiums for three years.

Greenberg insisted that the deal covered any shortfall the league would have in hosting their grand final at an SCG venue that holds a capacity of 46,000

The stadium rebuilds were always unpopular within the electorate and not considered a priority. With NSW facing a $20 billion deficit in years to come, Gladys may well be turfed out of government come the next election.

Beatup 'ol pal..............the Labor party ran a whole election platform on not building stadiums. They lost!!! Gladys won. Wrong as usual pal.

You can go on and on and on as much as ya like applauding and cheering for steps taken to combat C-19 because you perceive them as being negative to Rugby League. It's cheap infantile stuff pal. But carry on all ya like. Just let the adults get on with real life issues. Thanks Pal!!

NRL's ultimatum: Four new suburban stadiums or grand final will go

The NRL will meet the NSW Government this week armed with the threat of moving the grand final away from Sydney if the state doesn't deliver up to four boutique suburban stadiums over the next decade.

With the state government on Saturday dumping plans for the $800 million redevelopment of ANZ Stadium as it deals with the financial fallout of the COVID-19 crisis, NRL powerbrokers are set to demand funds be redirected towards suburban venues as part of a push to regenerate tribalism in rugby league.

ccording to sources with knowledge of the NRL's stadia strategy, the governing body is delighted with the decision by NSW government to scrap ANZ Stadium refurbishment plans, and will now lobby for up to four 15,000-20,000 seat stadiums worth around $150m-$200m each.

This would be a good idea. It's a pity they didn't make Bankwest a 60k stadium to cater for GF's, SOO, Wallabies & Socceroos. It is now in the geographic centre of Sydney and would be perfect.
