its a boutique ground and the atmosphere today wasn't bad at all especially when we had the ball.

And what about the clock. Came home and watched the fox broadcast (yeah, we are masochists) and Benji's first kick at goal came at 2 min 48sec. The clock at this time read 39.59 minutes. I think the players played for at least 2 and a half extra minutes in the first half.
Also, the lights came on before half time. What the??? Beau looked straight into them when he dropped the "bomb"!!

Was my first trek to Cambeltown, didn't mind the ground, but getting out of there was bad. Took forever to get out of there, and forever to get through the station. Ground was alright though, atmosphere wasn't too bad. Although looking into the sun was annoying.

i thought the ground was great ... i got there about 12 ish and watched a fair bit of the 20s ... we sat right behind the goalposts, it was easy to get food , use the amenities....the atmosphere.... well blame the team for that ....they never really gave the fans an opportunity to get excited .... the handfull of roosters fans in their army could be heard when they hit the front late in the game .. im just glad we didnt get to 12 a piece , cause i dont think i could of sat through any more time of one of the most boring games i have seen in years ....................

After not having been to the grounds for over 10 years since the Maggies use to play there, my initial thoughts of the new makeover was there was a lot of seating compared to some of the other grounds that I have been too. However, I do miss the old dusty eastern hill where the loyal Western Suburb supporters use to cheer on the Maggies. The hill use to generate great team spirit and fanatasic atmosphere amongst supporters and I believe the Tigers could have done with a little more of that today.

While, obviously progress will prevale, I do miss watching the game on the eastern hill.

I think it is great the price of childrens general admission tickets. $10. A great way to get people to bring the kids along ensuring more support in the future from the youngins. All grounds should do the same, making it affordable for families goes a long way in securing more supporters.

The atmosphere at Wests Tigers games has never been the same since 2005. Maybe because the team gave us something to cheer about.

Ita not a bad ground,you are very close to the action.

The 20k were as quiet as......except for when Lote had the ball and everyone went nuts.

On the way out there were a lot of peeps in Magpie gear saying we played like Balmain and blaming the orange jumpers..... :lol:

Yesterday was just another example of the players not turning up for a big occasion. been a number of these games since '05. The one at Leichhardt against the Rabbits in '07 or '08 when the crowd was huge and we lost 37-12 comes to mind.

It's shameful that on such an occasion, the first game of the year at a suburban home ground, with almost 20k in attendance, and it being Sheens' 600th game as a coach, that they laid such a huge smoking turd (forward pack aside).

The redevelopment of the top deck of the Western stand is pathetic.

They have added an extra row of seats which means leg room is now virtually zero and also upgraded the rake on the stairs meaning elderly people have a near impossible time making it to their seats without some form of assistance

Entire Stadium is pathetic...
The benches on the fence on the hill have squeezed out GA fans to be packed like sardines...
And you'd think with the money they had to spend they'd get a bigger screen than that joke of a 51cm tv on the northern end...

One other minor complaint -

I know my eyesight isn't the best, but seeing the score and time countdown wasn't easy. And what was with the blunder with the score and counter?

I don't think it is that.

Alot has to do with alot of people not wanting to deal with the pathetic parking sitation at our real homes.

I made the mistake of parking on the other side of the railway for the first time in years. The wait to get over the pedestrian bridge is 40 minutes of my life I won't get back. God forbid you have limited mobility etc
