Oh, it is a wonderful thing for a football club to have a No.1 ticket holder of influence. The Western Bulldogs have Prime Minister Julia Gillard and a nice little sponsorship for games from the federal department of Education. And North Melbourne, who have her replacement as Education Minister in Simon Crean, were able to announce yesterday that $1.9 million has jumped in to expand the Arden Street Oval.
Wonderful to see that the self-effacing Simon did not even have his name mentioned on the Kangaroos' website announcing the good news. All that's needed for this dream to come true is a Labor victory.
