They did a good job revamping this ground I must say. Looks good.

Is it a viable stadium though, with only 1 AFL side and some cricket matches played there? It is hardly ever filled either, so just wondering if it is doing ok financially.

It wouldn't be that much more than the SCG though? Another stadium rarely filled for afl, a few cricket matches, the only difference is a few rugby games for the scg.

The Gabba's field appears to be 100% circular.

This is unlike Docklands Stadium and Subiaco Oval, both of which have oval-shaped fields.

Is the field inside the Gabba really that round?

It's 170.6m / 149.9m to the fence which is slightly wider than the MCG (171m / 146m). The AFL side lines are painted at the extremes of 156m / 138m. So it is certainly one of the more circular grounds with the smaller SCG, while Subiaco Oval in Perth and Skilled Stadium in Geelong are of the long and narrow variety.
