Yes, I was asking about the stadium, which was awful back then, but that wasn't the main point of my argument against why it was a hopeless task a present. (And it was >>20 years ago, about 3 years after Arwon won the Melbourne Cup.) None of the soccer issues are specific to Canberra, but they make it harder to find the money there. Prior history of the sport there and nebulous estimates of revenue streams count against them. In a few years Canberra will have the (permanent) population to make it feasible; 30 odd years ago, when there were far fewer people and a much higher proportion of temporary residents, it was ridiculous.
