What is more im­por­tant; our in­ter­na­tional sport­ing achieve­ments (like the num­ber of South Aus­tralian ath­letes tak­ing part in the Com­mon­wealth Games – Sink or swim 2/10/10) or the par­tic­i­pa­tion rate of chil­dren at lo­cal com­pe­ti­tion? There has to be a bal­ance be­tween these two ex­tremes, and $535 mil­lion on an ex­clu­sive foot­ball/cricket oval is not it. Surely what is needed are more com­mu­nity fa­cil­i­ties with State Govern­ment fund­ing. This is the in­cu­ba­tor of cham­pi­ons.
