Commenting on the story: Government caught out on Adelaide Oval compo

I regularly attend Adelaide Oval for AFL other sporting matches and some social events. I feel that it is a great facility and one to be very proud of.

I have lived my whole life in SA and have been involved during my professional career in many activities and the design and creation of many structures and facilities.

I am and have been a small ‘L’ Liberal voter forever.

There are many things occurring in SA that make me feel proud – but also I feel cross when other states criticise our state and the many good things that are in it.

World wide visitors to SA express great enjoyment of our lifestyle, facilities, the general friendly residents and also compliment our overall good and fair attitude.

To not support the proposed World Cup application, I find, is confirming that there are some attitudes prevailing that indicate poor, short sighted, childish decision making prevailing.

There is, it seems, a possibility to revisit this great opportunity and to take a much broader ‘can do attitude’.

I look forward to such re-consideration and as a resident of SA, to be part of a great opportunity, to continue to enjoy and be proud of our home state. – Peter Milne

Commenting on the story: ‘Tiser circulation slides while fewer online readers pay

I receive The Advertiser online free of charge as a volunteer ambulance officer. If I had to pay I would not.

It is extremely frustrating to read  on my computer and compared with your publication online, extremely slow, unwieldy, videos keep playing uncontrollably –  often not at all relevant, and generally of little substance further to the headline, with continual priority of trying to sell me stuff.

The Advertiser is a partisan Murdoch publication and compared with other online news information like The Conversation, little to make me want to read it.

I get the Saturday Advertiser just for the comics and puzzles.

People I talk to are of similar opinion that The Advertiser offers little these days and we do not owe them a living.

They need to lift their game to make their offer attractive and of value. Tom Yeatman

What do they expect when every second page is a full-page advertisement and it is full of cold case murders and very little worthwhile world news.

When The Australian is such a biased news source, what do South Australians do?

Based on the content of the report, I cannot understand why our State Government would cut this funding.

I would have liked to see that the Attorney-General had been asked to explain to us the reasons for the decision.

This has made me put a  mark on Vickie Chapman’s card. Alastair Boyle
