I know it doesn't matter to you being anti Ctown and anti LO, but to some of us it does. That's all I'm saying. If Souths took a game to Leichhardt I reckon a fuss would be made.
Well it's not the same, how long have Wests been playing out of CSS in some incarnation? Since 1987. They relocated from a torally different area of Sydney. Newtown played games out of CSS before Wests did, and if they hadn't folded, might still be there.

Balmain played out of LO since 1934, nobody else has held the ground and Balmain didn't relocate to LO.
I don't get what you are saying. Are you trying to say Balmain have a longer history at LO? That has nothing to do with what's being discussed.

Yes that is what I am saying. If Souths took a game to LO there would be a fuss because it's been the Tigers HG since it existed in 1934. Tigers have been the local side since 1908.

If Souths take games to CSS, they would be in a list of clubs to have done so and not even the first one to play there. There'd be a fuss but I'd understand if it's less so.

I thought that Balmain relocated to LO from Birchgrove.
On a technicality yes they did, but LO didn't exist when the club started and Balmain did not relocate as a district.

Let's forget about Balmain and the Magpies for a minute. In regards to WT's who were established in 2000 and who we all like to claim are a different club to its parent clubs, both Ctown and Leichhardt are equal, as they have been the two heartlands of the club since the beginning.

And they are being treated as equals again this season, for better or for worse, despite the distance from longevity and financial base.

Honestly don't think you can do that. Either we forget Maggies and Tigers and play everything out of Homebush, or we recognise the heritage.

You can't say Leichhardt and Campbo are our heartlands but only give them consideration since 2000. Tell that to the supporters who turn up in Leumeah wearing Wests jerseys. By that argument Melbourne has an older heartland than WT do.

Based on that argument don't we have more of a heartland at Allianz than ANZ?

What a rubbish article. The sooner we move away from being a suburban team the better. We want to be appealing to a much broader fan base than the local government area of MacArthur.
Have you seen the size of the MacArthur area? Methinks not.

It is HUGE and getting bigger every week. Wests (at present) have FOUR clubs within that area. There is also a very big Catholic Club and some others.

Have a drive down Camden Valley Way and check out the amount of new housing being developed.

A goldmine going to waste.

:crazy :crazy

Leichhardt Oval?? Give me a break.
That is sooo funny, we've been hearing the same line for the past 30 fricken years. There's no money or supporters at Macarthur and there never has been
