Good to see Fordham try and keep the Sports Minister on his toes

Source : News.com

And more from Brisbane Times

While there is nothing in writing that will force the government into honouring any suburban ground funding, the NRL believes the original agreement for Sydney Olympic Park still stands.

Sources have told the Herald that the NRL alleges there is a legally binding agreement to invest $800 million into the upgrade of Stadium Australia and will hold the government to the deal despite the code’s preference for money to be redirected into boutique stadiums.

“I assume if the state government is to backflip on its commitment to fund suburban stadiums, then the $300 million committed to the Penrith stadium can now be better utilised for schools and hospitals?

“It would be outrageous for Penrith to retain its stadium for the obvious political benefit of its local member.”

Meh I think PVL can carry on like a pork chop at times. The Government isn't saying the funds aren't coming, they're saying there will be delays as it can be better spent atm.

Hard to argue.

That could also mean they'll NEVER come

Haha yeah sure

The government won’t be in seat this time next year, any agreements will need to start again with a new government and could delay things indefinitely. Perrotit has been delaying commitment on this for months so can’t blame PVL for being annoyed.

The solution is simple imo. The commitment from the government was so we keep the GF in Sydney, they’ve backed out so let’s move the GF.

Doesn’t help us much though

Move the GF to a venue with 30k less capacity, good idea.

Mightn't have to move with this part of the article

sell the GF to the highest bidder

IMO, the original plan fixing the SFS and Accor should have been what was done. suburban gounds....whatever.
As to us, we should find the funding elsewhere or shift the odd game

PVL making all sorts of friends with comments like these:

I find it appalling that they’re using human tragedy of the floods to renege on an agreement,” the powerful chair of the Australian Rugby League Commission, Peter V’landys, told the Herald.

Not sure what the GF is worth to the economy, but I'm pretty sure you could sell a 5 yr contract to Qld, or even do a NZ/Vic/WA/SA tour and you'd get enough money to do up 3 stadiums

I think the figure being thrown around is $10m for a grandfinal.
