The prospect of another crowd of around 7,000 for this weekends game has lifted the thin veil.
I'd like to see Vale SA, formerly known as Companhia Vale do Rio Doce (CVRD), commit to several million per year. Vale is Brazil's largest mining company (HQ São Paulo) and its Australian headquarters is here in Brisbane. Ultimately we could see 4 or 5 Brazilians in the team. They fund the marquee and guest spots.
Then we would have a powerhouse team that Queenslander's actually wanted to watch.
