Towny, I agree with you that there isn't a surplus of hotel accommodation in Brisbane, but there is lots on the Gold Coast which is 100km away from the centre of Brisbane. I disagree with you on everything else. How many cities do you lay claim to? Perth, Townsville, Darwin, Stockholm? Where else? Brisbane has changed a lot since you were sneaking into Whisky A Go Go's with fake ID in your teens. It's a proper, grown up city and between itself and Gold Coast there is a stack of infrastructure already in place. Of course, part of bidding for the Olympics is building new infrastructure and that's what the QLD state govt will do.
I’m coming around to the idea. The map had impact - the Gold Coast is perfect! I think half the apartments in Brisbane CBD are empty anyway.

I love the place - The Pineapple Hotel was my regular for a while.

But the Gabba will have to be torn down and rebuilt.
To be fair no-one will miss the Gabba. Especially if it's rebuilt bigger and better, And indoor stadium would be nice. The Pineapple Hotel is a nice spot.
I watched the 2000 Bledisloe classic and the 2003 RWC final at that spot. Top bloke ran it - he’s probably still there.

Not In My Back Yard!

... has always been the problem. But it is one of the proposed venues and - as such - will be above the purview of mere local government. That means they might get expanded use approvals.

As of now, they're building a small capacity rugby venue + traning centre + offices

My local too. Used to live on that street. John Malcolm on Thursdays was the highlight of the week. I definitely wasn’t that stumbling drunk long haired fuckwit often in attendance there.

Ballymoore should be used as an exemplar for training aspiring town planners. This is what happens when you build a sports venue but forget to consider parking or access.

Haha!

It wasn’t my local - I was in Townsville in those days. But my sister poured beers there and i used to play golf and drink piss with her boyfriend. His best mate was shift manager - his old man owned it.

What Ballymore needed was a bridge over the creek, making a 7-8 minute walk to Wilston.

No chance, obviously. :lol:

QEII has poor public transport, is miles from the centre and is easily the worst stadium ever built by anyone. In the unlikely event that Brisbane was awarded the Olympics there is a 100% guarantee that it would need a new stadium.

Olympics shouldn’t go to cities like Brisbane. It’s a really dumb idea.
Well you look stupid based on the latest IOC backing...again.

Can confirm.

There is a solid list of things that have made you look stupid but your own posts take up every spot. And I do not believe you penned even one of them at the behest of the IOC.

WhIch, btw, makes you look like Albert Einstein’s smarter brother…

Now that AP has achieved her great victory, I hope she is well-advanced with planning how to shove most of the risk onto the Gold Coast and Brisbane councils. Mainly because I don’t live within either’s area.

Australia must be winning the per capita amount of times held the Olympics (we'll exclude Greece because the first one in the 19C that re-kicked things off barely counted)?

I've tried to hold a conversation with you in the past... unless you can manage to drop the attacking tone in your posts, it's not worth it.

FWIW, that's what I referred to... Liz Cambage is copping a lot of flak which seems to have started back when she made a comment about people of colour and sport. It doesn't seem to matter what she does or has done, she is condemned regardless. Your post is an example of that. Yes, she's included in an incident under investigation... she's responded by saying that everything that occurred was filmed and she has nothing to worry about. Yet here you are, throwing that into a conversation about the negative coverage she receives like another accuser.

Unsurprisingly, he's a but of a cunt.

It's quite sad how people like David Leckie, also a complete cunt, had a great obituary with lots of "He was hard but a larrikin" whilst poor Liz Cambage is getting knifed publicly.
So you have the details of the investigation BA are undertaking on her atm?
One example compared to how many for Leckie?

Of course, you'd be of the personality type to standuop to someone like Leckie in a modern office? :nod: :lol:
