This whole concept is crazy. If it is to be built, it should be on the East Perth Power Staton Site opposite East Perth Railway Station. Why ? 1. Not all the agro. of traffic around Burswood. 2. Good rail connections already in place. 3. Far less traffic problems. 4. NOT gettng involved with Burswood Casino and all the associated problems, (robbery with violence in the carparks, too much alcohol, 'pokies',etc. etc.) If the AFL and WAFL want a bigger stadium. tell them to build it! The people of Western Australia should not have to pay for it!

What a shame! Footy going to an old tip!!! Subi should be re-developed, a multi-use stadium, restaurants, cafes, cinemas, shops and constructed over the railway line in Subi... Think big, not convenient! I will not be renewing my memberships, I will watch on TV. Bloody shame, tear the heart and soul out of WA Footy, as if the AFL dont do that, we are breaking with the only tradition left! PS: What happens to Subi Oval, presume we tear it down and build some more cramped future-slums?

Another great decision for Packer and the Liberal party donations. Few people might know that after promising the Christmas Island residents its casino would reopen, Howard suddenly banned its re-opening, for ever. It was not because he was building the $500 million refugee prison. They said it was because gambling is bad for society, despite the casino being the hospitality training ground for the island's youth. Anyway the islanders are not gamblers. However it was the Burswoods Casino's biggest competitor for Indonesian high-flyer gamblers. FUNNY THAT PACKER ANNOUNCED HIS PURCHASE OF BURSWOOD THAT SAME MONTH. WHAT A COINCIDENCE! If you doubt it check the facts. Now the advice of the experts is being ignored by the State government to provide Packer with a draw card to its Perth casino. Does the Liberal Government have a funding problem? Next we will hear that Packer is building a state funded water channel from the Kimberley.
