Offer of State funeral and renaming Southern Stand at the MCG are both in indecent haste for political purposes.
Not saying that either/both shouldn't happen but after an appropriate interval.
Politics has nothing to do with it. The guy has to be put to rest at some point and state funerals are seemingly held for all and sundry these days, particularly sports celebrities'.
Up until recent times, state funerals were only held for deceased senior politicians and leading members of the judiciary.
The renaming of a stand at the MCG also has nothing to do with government and perhaps refer your concerns to the Melbourne Cricket Club which are the custodians of the MCG.
