Comment on Gallery poll: less than 40% wanted Anzac Oval by Chris2.

I took a drive to Desert Park last week and noted it took six minutes from the Gap.

So much space, world class backdrop, no flood risk, infrastructure in place and complimentary to Desert Park itself. It’s a no brainer!
So why is the Gunner mob hell bent on sticking the gallery in the afternoon shadow of Anzac Hill? Seems to me there is a whale in the bay and promises have already been made to who knows whom.
