A little fact is that it is always quiet. You yell polite advice to the players and you get half the hill turn around and look at you like you have two heads. Great crowd last night, but the ground has a picnic atmosphere, not an intimidating atmosphere.

And no im not a usual suspect at all i have never tried to make a comparison or say ones better hen the other i cherish every home game we get.
It is a comparison to all NRL grounds that I have attended (predominantly in the Sydney area). Leichhardt is a lovely ground, but it is quiet and not very intimidating.

That is your opinion, but based on my experience at pretty much all grounds in Sydney I disagree.

Doesn't mean I hate the joint, I just think it has a picnic atmosphere which is part of its charm.

Yes picnic. You know, sitting on a rug. That is watching football at leichhardt.

I really don't want to dignify your next comment with a response, but anyway, I would love to see the ground redeveloped such that we play 6 games at both venues and pull crowds of 20,000+ in relative comfort.

I have found para, penrith, sfs, kogarah and brookvale more intimidating.

It may be true the crowd helps with refs, but opposition teams like playing at leichhardt. I really don't like that.

oppositions dont like playing at leichhardt at all coz they know the penalty count will go heavily against them as it did last night

Ive noticed this at almost every home game this year, minus the souths game at the footy stadium (Look how good we played in that game). Fire up everyone! I have one eye set on the bulldogs game at CSS. This game could kick start the passion.
