You would have to wonder how many tickets have been sold to this game and if it is less than 20,000 per day whether or not the WACA may be a better option as it would have a much better atmosphere

I understand their logic, but it is stupidity.CA and Venueslive have made the decision.
It is all about people beeing seen I know, but this appears to be a decision from CA that gives the people who have the TV rights to screw the general public... yet again.
A full upper deck will not have the same impact as a full lower deck.
A very short sighted decision.I wonder how many people this will put off from attending.


I can't wait to read BH's response that the taxpayers of WA that paid for the stadium will not have access to it in its entirety.

42 this is a Cricket Australia & VenuesLive decision you do realise I suppose you will blame Barnett for this as well?
Speaking of Stadium issues 42 remember the cost, design and construction problems with Perth Arena under your beloved Labor Party?!

But just to prove my non bias when it comes to politics Perth Arena is another great asset to be completed in WA in the last decade and will be for decades to come much like Perth Stadium!

I will blame Barnett for the loss of WA's triple A credit rating.

I noticed you have failed to address the water contamination at both PCH and betty's jetty. Similarly, no comment re the presence of asbestos at PCH.

I certainly do not resile from supporting a party that is interested in the less fortunate of our society; that is interested in health care and education; climate change etc.

This sounds like a disaster in the making.Like Mike H said can we move this game back to the Waca.We still have 11 days to do so.A lot will depend on the first test to see if the Aussies show a bit of backbone.If so ticket sales could exceed expectations. And a full open Optus Stadium could be a possibility. Mantawarra Bridge will be working overtime,lol.

Sean when you signed up with WA Granny Flats to build your 1 bedroom unit out the back of your mum's place for you to live in a few years ago and they subsequently subcontracted to a local plumber to install a dunny in the bathroom who instead put it in the kitchen....is that your fault or that of the contractors and/or subcontractors?

I think the people who made the decision to close should be forced to spend the day in the full sun so they may have an informed view for the next summer.

Hopefully they will be seated next to those backwards types that believe Perth Stadium, Matagarup Bridge, Yagan Square, Elizabeth Quay, Perth Arena et al should not have been built and or at their present ideal locations!

Interesting that the stadium could theoretically pay for itself within 10 years...I wonder how it would have gone if Barnett had followed Langoulant's recommendation and Labor had their way?

Was always going to be the way BC, thank god Barnett had the grand foresight and long term vision to build a world class stadium in an ideal, iconic Perth location....unlike the other mob of numptys!
