The Sydney Morning Herald notes that the bid to link Canberra with Sydney’s Western Suburbs for the purposes of AFL football is in some trouble.
The story says that only 4,000 of the needed 5,000 $50 pledges have turned up.
The ACT4GWS website at this time actually says the number is 3,422, with 7 days to go.
So if you want to have a piece of an AFL team playing four games a year here in Canberra it’s time to put your hands in your pockets!
Apparently if the numbers don’t come good “all bets are off.”
