Port Melbourne Cricket ground / ETU stadium

It looks like the rivalry between the footy club and cricket club will hear up again. 

Rumours are that the AFL offered the PMCC a very sizeable amount of money to vacate the ground (and make a move to Murphy's reserve).

The cricket club aren't having a bar of it.

However I see that there are now 4 games fixtured at North Port Oval (right up until the cricket club get use of the ground).

The PMFC are obviously very keen to maximise usage and income of the redeveloped oval, so I can't see this issue going away any time soon.

AFL apparently did the same thing with the Box Hill City Oval to no avail.
