    When government pays them a fixed amount, this amount is still tax payers $$$. When they lose $$$, whose $$$ are going down the drIan? They are not entitled to throw good $ away but be accounted for every cent.

    The least they should do is to explain why they made those decisions. They cannot think they are running their own biz thus can do what they want with the money. Sorry, if it is my own money, I can change till I am satisfied and who care.

    Shouldn't grass be under Ministry of Vegetation or Ministry of Happiness?

    These are the foreign untalented that the garment welcomed with open arms and deep pocket, namely - SHPL CEO Philippe Collin Delavaud and SHPL's senior director of stadia Greg Gillin.

    Our society love people to talk loud and give empty promises. Unfortunately, our system teaches our people to restrain and look at team not individual. So till we manage to balance this, we will continue to pay the price. It is not limited to sport only.

    There has been a very recent ho ha over artificial tuff use for the women's World Cup ( vs natural for men)
    One of the reasons cited being increased chances of injury.

    And this, I heard on BBC radio, being a totally non football person.
    So its really not acceptable to me that the people running the stadium in which this is their bread and butter can over look this bit of news.

    Inevitably, questions will be asked. What's the sports hub for? Sports or generating revenue? Same goes for the Esplanade. Arts of generating revenue? Is there any point in building billion dollar projects and then price them out of most people's reach while trying to stay "sustainable"?

    This mentality of throwing money at monsters is seriously flawed.
