"But one thing I will say unequivocally is that there needs to be one defined home to complement the one defined brand of the Wests Tigers.

Pffft
Exactky. Promise one and deliver five. Time for another fluffy Q and A.
I have been told that perspective Corprate types that would delivery future sponsorship dollars want nothing to do with both suburban grounds..I am a bit confused as to where the club is headed with this signing up long term at both grounds seems odd or money is no object moving forward .
I think they are still trying to please everyone. But that gets you nowhere.
Maybe they are looking at multi year suburban ground deals taking us up to when homebush is refurbished then a full time move there.

They either don't have a plan or arnt sharing it with us for some reason.
I'm not really clear on what you guys are getting at?

The obvious answer for a single home ground is to take everything to ANZ. I don't think we are ready for that yet and I understand still splitting the games. I love going to LO and I wish it was more than 4 times per year, even though I understand the rationale for Homebush, it's not the same. I don't think Tigers can just cut CSS and LO without significant fallout, there will be all this nonsense about abandoning the local fans and junior development.

In fact if you look at CSS, if we take games away then what ties do we actually have to the area? Just Wests JRL - the Leagues club doesn't invest in Tigers, we don't train there, our players don't live there.

The other problem I am sure all clubs have is that the State Govt still haven't finalised their stadia plans, so nobody can make long-term decisions about games played. It's still possible that ANZ could be out of play for some time due to refurbish, or they may end up knocking the SFS down.

Gosford would be hardly and "exciting" Initiative you'd think.
That depends on where you live.
It maybe handy if you live in the area and are a WT fan (or the team they are going to play against, but Underdog is correct it wouldn't be the greatest initiative in terms of growing the game and supporters.
I thought that the Roosters have moved into this area with the Wyong Roos?

Actually thinking about this our home game win ratio was the worst of any Club in 2017 ..
I believe...we did win more on the road...

Maybe the short to medium long term goal is to play all our home games away like 12 games in South Australia or Wellington or Perth..we don't need to establish a fotress...

Thats correct, i hope they take games to country towns rather than Adelaide or Perth.

Iam all for every team taking a home game to the country, interstate or even PNG, but it has to be all teams including the likes of Brisbane. For us to take two games and both games from our suburban allotment is crazy.

I know the reason is all about dollars and improving our bottom line, but the very best way to improve your bottom line is to win football matches and you do that by building a fortress for a home ground not by being the traveling Wilburys.

As a ten year member I am not happy

9 games @ ANZ
1 game @ Leicharddt
1 game @ Campbeltown
1 game to a country/rural area to establish a new fan base

Pleases everyone and we get extra money which would help attract more quality players

Not only are Wyong their feeder team, they've also taken over Woy Woy Leagues which creates the odd situation in the local comp of a team backed by their Leagues Club playing a team in their feeder stream albeit indirectly.

You would be surprised how much the chooks have gotten into young kid's minds throughout the central coast since linking up with the Wyong Roos and I haven't even lived there a year as yet. School visits and a bit of work in the community does wonders and it is much less racially diverse, so more people know or follow the game.

Does anyone know how long until our deal with ANZ ends? I'm all for games out of Sydney but I was hojng they'd be at the expense of ANZ....not Leichhardt and Campbelltown

Ten year deal started in 2014.
I'm gonna be greedy and hope we game in Perth this year.
I second that!

Can someone tell me if the long term deal with ANZ is a good deal or was it stupid and how long the deal is for?
10 years and the club is guaranteed at least $100,000 even if the crowd is pitiful. To make a profit at Leichhardt I recall the figure of around 12,000 to make a profit.

All I'm getting at ss that Pascoe said he'd deliver us one home ground. Now we're going to five. It seems odd.

I can see points on both sides of the argument but I strongly believe there is a positive outcome in taking games to rural areas in regards to attracting the young kids to start supporting our great club.

I was born in Darwin and when I was about 6 years old the Balmain Tigers came and played a game up there (against Penrith I think it was). All the kids loved it and at the game I got myself a Tigers hat and fell in love with the team just because I got to see them up close. Fast forward 33 years and add in a merger I still love the team and can never imagine following anyone but them and this all started with a 6 year old kid being able to see them up close which the majority of kids in rural areas will never get to experience.

Same here when I was 7 or 8 WT came to wagga wagga and I got to meet the players at a JRL clinic and followed them ever since

I think its a great idea

Just as I replied to TCL above, any presence gains ground. My son and his mates were buzzing after the chooks visit to his school.

I agree that any presence gains ground however, if we go to regional towns in NSW we garner support from NRL supporters and are more likely to find potential talent in those areas as well.

When my son was younger they won their local comp, we took the team out to Parkes and they were way to strong for our boys. Some great talent in the bush.

I wouldn't have a problem with PNG or Fiji neither but Perth and Adelaide i just cant get excited about.

Theres only eight opposition Sydney based teams, you can guarantee when the draw comes out we wont have a H game against every one of them, you then need to start having regional & interstate opponents...if thats the case ANZ wont be paying the top dollar they pay us for 4 games there per year against the opponents THEY choose (high crowd pulling Sydney clubs)

Flood the market, dilute the price
