5 years ago this thread would be 150000 pages and locked by now.

4 pages and very few snarky comments leads me to believe that either:

1/ the joint venture is being embraced by all fans
or

2/ hardcore balmain or wests fans have wandered off into the sunset




EDIT: at one point I have to put my hand up to being one of the trouble makers.
I understand these comments totally.
Its noticably a lot quieter on these type topics nowadays....i think weve all matured in this regard
"On The Bus" perhaps?

I know I will be hunted down by all Magpies supporters for spilling the beans , but we Magpies are planning to takeover the joint venture and run as a separate club

Be afraid Balmain , be very afraid
Effectively they do now...WESTS Tigers however will be the NRL side ..no beans spilt ..peas maybe..

I hope that the WTs do plan to develop a lot more in the area,I honestly think that there is untapped potential in Macarthur,supporter and player wise..it needs someone with very good and savvy marketing skills to touch the interest of the people and give them something to support and be proud of...
How they do this is up to them..from my point of view,I travel to Campo plenty of times for the games there as well as going to the other stadiums,if you love a team or sport,you will travel to support them,so living in Sydney cant be all that difficult to get to games if your fairdinkum about it..

ps..I live in the Southern Highlands and its about an hour from Campbelltown,no worries to me,but I do understand that travelling really pees people off...
You may see me struggle...but you will never see me quit... :D

Great comment jirskyr,I was always a Balmain boy through and through,but I have faced reality and embraced the WTs,Balmain is a thing of the past, now in the history books where it belongs...

There's another thing too, that our newest adult supporters have never known Magpies or Balmain as primary entities. Being 18 seasons into Wests Tigers, there are young people who are now buying their own tickets, their own merchandise, well-adjusted to social media, and to them our heritage is written down in the books, it's not in their memory.

They are taking us along with them; in another 18 years those supporters will have their own kids.
