Yeah I know, but it's too good an opportunity to pass up.

You mean the AFL? It helps when close on 50% of the teams play at the same 2 grounds and another 4 share 2 grounds. Apart from the NSW and Qld teams, the other 14(?) teams use 5 grounds...

If the AFL kept using grounds like Windy Hill they'd be in the same boat.

Unfortunately AHX, St. Merge had a former PM in John Howard and Premier in Morris Dilemma who were both staunch Dragons fans. We have Barry O'Farrell, but with the current state of affairs this state has, I think he'll be a little too preoccupied to allocate funds to either Campbelltown Stadium or Leichhardt Oval.

Yeah Windy Hill!It happened! Essendon was playing there as late as the early 1990s! It's the sort of thing the AFL like to sweep under the carpet and not talk about. Like lab coats on the goal umpires and VFL Park...

To be fair WIN Stadium is the only decent size ground in the whole Illawarra. It's not unreasonable it would get more bucks than Leichhardt or even Campbo which are relatively close to other big grounds. It's a long walk from Wollongong to the next big ground!
