I will give you just four examples of different people who have stayed with us in recent years and I have gone with them to AO for events – (1) From Sydney to watch ODI Cricket (2) From Melbourne to watch AFL (although he was a biased life long Collingwood supporter and avid that the MCG is the best sports stadium in the world blinkered view) (3) From UK to watch Liverpool play AU (4) Different UK people to watch the Ashes Test match. All of them thought AO was great, except everyone of them asked one of two questions at some point – they were either (a) when is it going to finished? or (b) why didn’t they finish it? At which point I have to explain the politically history why it is what it is.
So they came for events and then found out about why it's unique.
Let's look at this another way, what events currently aren't happening at Adelaide Oval due to the hill?
Yes unique – bit like
The one way expressway once had
Part electric train set and part not
Being dumped in the scrub at Kewsick terminal after arriving by interstate train
Tourists having to share the free connector bus with putrid, practically fly blown locals wanting a dust up
Catching a decrepit mini bus to tour Australia’s premier wine region because there is no train and local shuttle service on arrival
One newspaper with biased views, and you cant even use it afterwards for toilet paper because it comes pre loaded with shit
Yes I am sure people go away saying – well at least its unique, too bad about international imagine, as long as the locals like it, who cares…
After all SA needs all the economic helping hand it can muster, not deliberately shoot itself in the foot. Need to look forward more instead of backwards.
