    I’m not at all sure Mr Edgar used the phrase ‘stadium haters’, possibly it was the NBR’s reporter or sub-editor.

    But meanwhile back at home…another term: “stadium stoppers”. This one’s a bit tongue in cheek since NOTHING will stop the stadium, not a stopper, not a cork, not one sunken pile. Alas.

    And still no viable business case for the stadium’s future operation.

    I’m not sure how long the ODT will continue to give these people a forum to regurgitate ad nauseum the same tired and failed arguments.

    The re-run of Edgar’s statement re the sponsorship deal plus Paul on the Bay’s comments tie in nicely with Terry Davies’ selfie in a thousand ‘huffs’ in Saturday’s ODT. Brown nose, Wendy and Peter Pan all in together.
