So if we play the Cowboys Thursday night at ANZ we get 20 plus thousand........... SWEET
Maybe we could, but one thing is for sure, we CANT get 20k at LO or Cambo for ANY game.
I can see us getting bigger then 20k at WSS though.
Probably ....
Until the hype wares off and we’ve lost six in a row ..?!
Who us? Lose 6 in a row? :crazy

We'll just buy the norths hooker to save the day.
Yawn
We need mongrel ..
No more plodders !

Just watched a segment on the WSS on the news ..well only supporters of the Westigers could demand not to play out of there as our home ground! This stadium will entrench any club that plays out of there in the Sydney basin for decades .
If management do not jump all over this they are a failure in there duty to secure the WestsTigers any future in the Sydney sporting market.
It was Intoduced on the news as the
“New Parramatta Stadium “

Go figure !
Sorry it stated WSS and the reference was at Parramatta where it is situated GO FIGURE!

All those pinning their hopes on one home ground (WSS ) will be disappointed i think. Although i believe we should have a 10/1/1 split between WSS,LO and CS I'm pretty sure we will see a 4/3/3/1/1 split again next year. I really hope not as its becoming laughable.

Pascoe said it was going to be 4/3/3/1/1 again next year in the last Q & A session.

I have 6 memberships at ANZ and had them from the start to be honest if nothing changes next season our family has decided to opt out .This club has to realise that the formula they have is NOT working and to be frank becoming a farce with 6 home grounds .
The supporter base is still divided and still being pandered to by the club ,the team can not lift to the next level even to make a final series, the philosophy of our club has to change .

I have to agree we are nearly 20 years into the JV and really we should be playing out of the new stadium with 1 game each at LO/CO no more wandering around

With the new WSS, we have a perfect opportunity to finally have just one home ground (predominantly, I’d go with a 10-1-1 split). Incredibly disappointing to hear that we’ll be continuing in 2019 with this 4-3-3-1-1 rubbish
Year of last finals appearance:
2018 - Roosters, Storm, Rabbitohs, Sharks, Panthers, Broncos, Dragons, Warriors
2017 - Eels, Sea Eagles, Cowboys
2016 - Raiders, Bulldogs, Titans
2013 - Knights
2011 - Tigers

Playing out of WSS just confuses our identity.
We will be effectively renting Parramatta's home ground smack bang in the middle of their local district, fan base area, and where all their infastructue is. The area will never welcome or accept us being anything other than infiltrators which is not conducive to how a home ground relates to a fan base.

There is nothing there that mildly relates to our club and the only positive is that it offers a brand new stadium to play from.
It is fraught with danger if the team is not successful.
Ideally playing out of one home ground is the way forward but I can understand the clubs reluctance to make it at a stadium that historically and going into the future is effectively the home ground of one Sydneys strongest clubs and our rival.
It may be seen as a solution by some but it is far from ideal and if I was in control I would certainly not be entering into anything longterm at WSS.

Let’s talk about Fan base ...in fact the WSS is situated smack in the middle of the Tigers fan bases ...Inner city ..north west Sydney ...south west Sydney ...western Sydney .The clubs fan base is the entire Sydney basin as the ridiculous ground situation proves .

The access is not a problem, but there is never ever going to be any mistake about who the community support is associated with within that area. Its situated beside its leagues club and business district - it is and always will be aligned with Parramatta.
And why I appreciate the facility will be great to play at, it is not ideal for our identity as a home ground when it will always stink of Parramatta, and rightly so.
One home ground is the ideal absolutely agree, but our club will only ever be considered as visitors at what will be referred to as Parra Stadium and I cant see how that is going to strengthen our identity in some ways it just confuses it. If it was a neutral ground that both teams shared totally different situation but it is a rebuild of Parramatta stadium no matter what they rename it.
May be considered a negative view but just my opinion. I can appreciate that it is a very difficult decision for the club to committ to.

I think we are in the fortunate position that we have fans all over the Sydney metro area. Clubs like Cronulla and Manly are restricted to one little area and could be their downfall eventuallly.We actually have the pulling power to become a powerhouse.
Growing up and living in the Parra, Hills and Wenty areas I can tell you we have a large supporter base in that area.

The best way to get more fans to games is to make it more value for money.

$100+ for my large family vs gathering around the TV with half the $ worth of junk food...

Ps. Anyone notice that there are fewer and fewer young Tigers fans in the crowd.
