As stated there are two broad areas that I wish to comment on with regard to the stadium. Without a doubt the majority of the complaints or concerns surrounding the proposed stadium have been surrounding the economics of the project.
There is no doubt that the critics have issues with ratepayer burden, while others have fears that the council has stretched itself too far, while others have expressed concerns about the possibility of a recession having devastating consequences for the council.
While on the other hand, proponents are understandably bullish and while not exactly painting a picture of the streets paved with economic glory, they are understandably up beat about the prospects for the stadium. These protagonists also see the potential for peripheral development of course having a positive spin off from the development.
