If you ever needed any more proof the StS hurt Dunedin…

So I am wandering downstairs in my new office to the cafe at the bottom of the building, and what do I hear bellowing over a full cafe, a supposedly intelligent person (well he does work as a scientist at the University) holding forth about a ‘miniature tin-pot stadium with a glass roof and grass that won’t grow’. He knows of no other stadium in the world with a glass roof where the grass grows – and he was (as per usual with the exceedingly uninformed but incredibly opinionated Anti crowd) lecturing this to his colleagues.

I mean what the bloody hell is one to do with this except get a little juvenile and start saying, “we won we won”.

Holly Crap, I mean really, it’s not a bloody glass roof, it’s not a small tin-pot building and (this is the irony) the scientific studies carried out show that the grass will grow.

I’m lost for words.

The StS, hang your head low, your campaign of disinformation is seemingly timeless. Would have been nice to have been a complete twat then and there, whip out my iPhone, record his comments and in a couple of years time when it’s done and dusted and the grass is still growing under the ‘glass roof’, just to play it back to him and say, really, were you sure of what you were saying?

    Fair enough Paul, the guy was short on substance! Use the iphone next time. Sadly, there’s quite a few more to expose who think like that – if anyone had time to bother taking the facts to them. Yes, it’s true, the StS haven’t been making any effort other than to throw the building and its detailing into caricature.

    [Wonder where they’ll grow the turf and how much that’ll cost…hope DCC doesn’t have to buy land off John Farry for a turf farm. Not sure how well maintenance of the turf for premium field events will fare, even despite the test rig results. However, not perturbed – the experiment is totally worthy under ETFE…don’t know where the hell all these boffins and termites are getting “glass” from, can’t they read!? Maybe there’s a future in schools and universities for mainstream architectural and engineering education after all.]

  2. Hell I have some land, I’ll happily let them grow some nice turf on here, will look mighty pretty.

    Hell if the guy was arguing the economics of it all, I would have sat down and tried to listen as hard as possible, might have learnt something. But it’s incredible how this stuff just goes on and on.
