    I'll extend stadium for no fee: Tycoon Len Buckeridge

    Contruction tycoon Len Buckeridge has offered to extend Members Equity Stadium at cost.

    According to a report in the West Australian this morning the BGC boos who played rugby for WA Colts in 1954.

    " I am not prepared to sit back and watch the Western Force dissappear because Perth lacks a suitable stadium.

    "Theres a grave risk the Force will end up in another state if nothing is done"

    "I'll do anything I can to stop that happening"

    Mr Muckeridge said he wanted his grandchildren who are Force members to watch top class rugby in a suitable stadium.

    "I've been to Subi for Force games and its bloody awful"

    "You can't enjoy rugby in an AFL style ground"


    Welcome aboard Len

    Now we are talking.
    I have always wondered if there isn't a private company that will be willing to upgrade MES, because if we wait for the WA goverment then we might just wait a long while

    Generous perhaps... However caution is required when big talking businessmen enter the room with gifts...

    What does he want out of it? Is it just to keep his staff employed during this recession? Or just to create business turn over to pay his BGC group overdrafts and business loans covered by a government guarantee?

    But if he can help well fantastic...

    yeah sounds like you googled his name and then strung a negative theme on his business interests just for the sake of trolling...

    the last sentence almost redeemed you though

    Because the govt just say "Yeah, OK" and throw money at him without caution or checking these things

    As per usual you are defending shadows…

    You misunderstand... he is a businessman first... I'm not saying he is dodgy but people have more motives than just good will on such a large scale… Furthermore I understand he is well established...

    Plenty of businesses will chase government projects because for business security... He may need a project like this on his books...

    I'm not defending anything - I'm just wondering what your point is? You state the bleeding obvious as if it is a conspiracy ....

    "he [Len Buckeridge] is a businessman first" - ooooohhhh....

    "Plenty of businesses will chase government projects because for [sic] business security" - GASP!!!

    "Is it just to keep his staff employed during this recession?" - The rat bastard!! keeping staff employed!!!

    You are one for stating the obvious! Of course he needs a project for his books, every business around the world needs more work at the moment.

    This is not a bad thing for our economy the government invests in major infrastructure project, but as always due diligence is required when any major project is planned and implemented! I would prefer the government gets into debt for something that will benefit us now (jobs) and in the future (revenue) then just giving out $900 for T.V’s and Playstations!

    No these again are your paranoid words again... You're loosing it Coach...

    I'm just saying if you read my first entry correctly… its generous but requires caution... nothing more no conspiracy coach… If you quote me quote what I’m talking about not everything else other than the key point…

    No need for the BS remarks crew.... you guys are way to protective, siege mentally is taking hold again... I'd recommend you seek collective help...

    Gerry put it on a T-Shirt… it says more about you than anyone else here….
