SFS issues and a few other things

Post by genoshan » Fri 05 Aug, 2011 11:53 pm

A great game in the 2nd half. !st half both sides seemed nervy to me.

It was my first ever live game at SFS and my thoughts. The sound / microphone when the 61 GF players were on the field. I could not hear anything through the speakers. Otherwise, I liked it as a ground for footy. The beer line up was terrible ... about 15 mins to get a crappy VB !!!

One other thing. I kinda wished the tiger mascot stayed away from the Magpies old time legends. Seemed a little tacky to me. They were doing photos with the 4 teams lined up and we had the Tiger in the middle of our 2 sides.

LOL I sasw the tiger put his arm around some big silver haired dude at the front of ther line, not sure who it was his back was to me....the old champ brushed his arm off in no uncertain terms.

Agree with the PA too....useless

Great to see both teams walk out though with the Feds and hawks kids, line up with the olf famous players, national anthem and the best touch imo our players shaking our past players hands befoe kick off....very classy, loved it all.

If I was a sponsor of the club i would not be impressed the sound system is non exitistant..The SFS needs a major upgrade no doubt a great venue to watch but old and tired..it spoils the atmosphere when you can not hear whats going on!

Usually the sound is much better and audible, but for some reason a lazy technician mustn't have picked up on it, pretty piss poor.

Highlight was when the full time siren went, the whole dragon army dispersed as fast as they could lol

No it,s been that way for couple of seasons as we sit in roughly the same area in GA most games It really requires only cosmetic surgery but I guess this still costs Millions.

I think people are sick & tired of going there & being ripped off for parking & ripped off for a drink & the cost of crap food is a joke & the p.a system is R.S then you cant get out of the dump.

I parked in the SCG carpark, started the car, straight out and only got one red light the entire way dropping a mate home in Ambarvale. 40 minutes including a Drive Thru sustenance stop.

The audio was ok in the members area apart from the cutout during the National Anthem.

It was a real touch of class the players shaking all the greats hands before the game

I had a similar experience to you smeg, even the drive back to the southwest. Agree with Ink the players shaking hands was a very good touch.

Not an sfs issue but I didn't like how the 2 sides come out together in the 1st half. One of my favorite things if going to the game is standing up an cheering as Robbie leads the team onto the field and the boo the crap out of the opposing team. Had to wait till the 2nd half to do this
Year of last finals appearance:
2017 - Storm, Roosters, Broncos, Eels, Sharks, Sea Eagles, Panthers, Cowboys
2016 - Raiders, Bulldogs, Titans
2015 - Rabbitohs, Dragons
2013 - Knights
2011 - Tigers, Warriors

How did others find the atmosphere last night?

I thought for such a closely contested match there wasnt a lot there. Probably reflected the fact that for most of the game it was a dour contest with outstanding defence.

I was surprised at the small size of the crowd but being a Friday night many find it hard to get there from work.

Hi everyone

I hate the rolling advertisements that we on the western side of the field have to watch all night. Can be very distracting.

With all the noise from the crowd, it is hard to criticise the PA system.

And I like the idea of the teams running on individually. Cheer on our boys, and boo the opposition. It's the rule!!

We park 15 minutes walk away - and have no trouble getting away.

And I don't buy food and drink there - or at any ground really. Too expensive and yuk!!

Great game last night, anyway - Go the Tigers!!

WESTS TIGERS BE PROUD!!
