I can see it now. The games will be the best thing since sliced bread for the kopites as they assume they'll get the opening ceremony gig because ya know '5 times' and all that. After all why would they bestow the honour on a 'small club' like Everton.
And then it will suddenly become shite, a liability and the RS will claim they didn't want it anyway when it's given to us on the basis of our shiny new waterfront behemoth being better in every aspect.
It's how they roll.
