Rev, I respect your right to disagree with me.
It's you who doesn't respect anyone's right to disagree with you. Sometimes I put up arguments, sometimes I just can't be bothered. I still don't have to agree with you.
As Ho Really said recently, it's okay to disagree.
Get over it.
I agree with rhino. Rev, a lot of the time when you put your opinions across you portray them in such a way that is very fate accompli and if we don't eventually agree with you, you get nasty and continue to degrade our opinion as if yours is more expert than ours. For instance, I've stated fairly valid reasons for not liking this development and your way of response is to get on the defensive and bash my opinion as if it's completely ludicrous. I don't expect this forum to always be sunshine and rainbows, especially when people feel passionately about certain things (I know that I have my bad days on here and I'll usually leave the forum if I've made a couple of sour comments) but that said, you and a couple of others really need to consider why you bother coming on here if all you're going to do is command every thread with the whole 'I'm right, you're wrong' attitude. Are we not all here for the same reason, to discuss Adelaide prospering through well-thought development?
The only thing that I found ridiculous is the idea that this is going to impact parklands.
Concrete & reo are not parklands. This site hasn't been parklands for a very very long time. It's the same argument some tried to make about the festival plaza. It's not parklands. It's urbanized already.
The footprint of this hotel isn't going to impinge on the grass/trees nearby. It's going to be well within the existing urbanized part around the oval it self.
Some people like Adelaide Oval, and think it's great. Cool. Did I say that anyone can't have that opinion or view?
For me, it's a dogs breakfast. The only consistent thing about it is the colour of the seats and the style of roofs on the three grand stands. As I said as well, just a bigger version of what we had before. Mismatched stands. Different heights, different exterior finishes.
The reason I've compared it to Perth Stadium, is because their new stadium is one complete building that flows from end to end.
Yes, these are facts correct?
Now my opinion based on those visual facts that you can all go and see for your selves, or look at photos, is that they got a better deal then we did.
Some of these guys though make it seem like there's two camps here. The camp that doesn't agree with me, and the camp that does.
There's plenty who don't agree with a lot of what I say or think. Do I argue with everyone?
Does it turn nasty, and personal with everyone who disagrees with something I've posted?
Perhaps instead of always pointing your fingers at me, some people should actually take a look at your selves in a mirror for a change. For my part, I'm well aware I can fly off the handle. I'm also well aware of why I fly off the handle at certain people, a little group I like to call my fan club. Odd how things remain civil with the majority of people on this forum, even those who disagree with my opinions or views.
However at the end of the day, it comes down to this. If you Patrick, or anyone else, has a problem with how I type posts, or can't handle that I wont agree with them or bown down to them (as seems to be the case with some people, not you Patrick), perhaps consider putting me or ignore, and that way you wont have to read my posts unless you choose to view them. I've got a couple people on ignore because I cant be bothered wasting my time trying to reason with them anymore because all they want to do is make things personal. Kind of how Rhino has turned this thread about the merits of Adelaide Oval's redevelopment and the impending hotel development into a personal thing about me. Which is what this little fan club of mine usually do.
I'm sick of it, and I'm sure the mods are sick of cleaning up threads. So I'm adding more to the ignore list.
We've wasted enough time on this crap. Can we get back to discussing Adelaide Oval and it's hotel development? ..if you want to keep discussing me and analysing me, feel free to PM me. All of you. Or just put me on ignore and stop ruining threads with your butthurt feelings because Rev doesn't agree with your opinions and views and passionately debates his opinions and views.
