My favourite ground is and always will be Leichhardt oval, have been going there for over 50 years BUT neither it our Campbelltown are good enough anymore.The new stadium at Parra is the only way to go to take our club into the future.I have no doubt with our supporter base we should get bigger crowds there than anyone else including the slippery slugs.
Its an easy decision and i hope the club makes it soon

I'd like to see the revamped ANZ before we commit to a new stadium for long-term.

I also have a sneaky suspicion myself that the country and NZ games are not just an opportunity to engage with alternative fan bases (and raise capital, in the NZ instance), but dilute the LO/CSS match pool and see how the fans react.

They might consider going down to 2 games LO/CSS at some stage, or just rip the band-aid off as suggested.

The major issue as I see it is this: the best games and atmospheres are generated when lots of fans from both clubs attend. It will always be a lesser maximum experience if you have an out-of-town team. But the LO/CSS capacities are such that it doesn't really make sense to play local derbies there because you can realistically do much better than capacity. So you are stuck with the out-of-town games.

Imagine therefore, long-term, if you keep 1 game each for LO and CSS, who do you play there? Certainly not Tigers-Souths or anything like that... Tigers v Souths as the only LO game of the season could potentially be bursting at the seams.

The crowds at cambelltown have been ordinary for years. If we built a new stadium there would be even get over 15,000 to a game?

Wouldn't think so - judging on past performances.

If we really are a joint venture, Campbelltown and Leichhardt should be our home grounds. End of story.

Admittedly, both stadiums need a lot of work and funding to bring them up to standard, but this is not mission impossible.

Travelling around the continent like a circus will do nothing to build our brand or support. It's a financial band aid that once torn off, will show some gaping wounds,

At the moment we're running on the fumes of Wests Magpies and Balmain Tigers. It wont last forever.

Imo Perth is the way to go !

1. We already have the name
2. The NRL would give us a massive leg up monetary wise
3. We're out of the crap that is Sydney
4. We'll still get to watch them play in Sydney against sides like Souths / Roosters /Parra etc
5. We can enjoy weekends away flying over to Perth with family and friends.
6....and imagine a road trip with happy and Geo !

And imo it’s an attractive place to live...plus players would want to come over to get out of the fish bowl which is Sydney !
I've been saying this for some time. We also get a brand new stadium, one team in a big city adds up to lots of corporate sponsorships. Plus, with the money we would get from the NRL, we could afford to purchase some top line players.

Win Win.

:righton:
1 Geo is banned from WA (don't ask why :shock: )

2 Look rugby league isn't as popular as is made out

3 I didn't know this until recently , but SOO gets less than 100 000 viewers from WA

4 I would very concerned about getting many decent FTA viewing games (look at Canberra , Warriors , Cowboys and to a lesser degree Melbourne )

5 Many games in WA would get played at ridiculous time slots and effect crowd numbers

6 I couldn't sit in the Japanese Princess and listen to Hobbo rave on about English cricket , Nissans , explaining how to blow up his Harry Kane blow up special doll , listening to him brag about eating 94 snag sandwiches in a single sitting , how good he is as a goal kicking coach and Tottenham for 70 hours ONE WAY
Agree with Hobbo!

What time was the Origin on tv over there,

From memory the times of the Perth team in super league, were fitted in to the rest of the games and were live but not sure what it was in WA,
maybe someone else knows?

Would love to know if we got a better deal then the Eels rejected or if we are getting shafted. Does anyone know?

Alot of the complaints seem to do with pricing. Might be wise to eat before you go, and plan to have a beverage somewhere else after!
