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

Don't feel too special... back when the magpies were in first grade the supporters used to blame the white jerseys when we lost in them. Not sure who we blamed when we wore our black jerseys... the ref probably
Reminds me of the first year or so of the merge, my dad and I used to say when we won it was the Tigers, when we lost it was Wests.

The leg room wasn't that bad but it is a bit of a pain when some people keep coming in and out. Some people in my row were going to the loo every 20 mins. :?

He got it wrong. It's the other way around. :P

The journo is me - I'd be very grateful for anyone who could answer the PM.

As Bret said I'm writing a story on the Campbelltown upgrade - after a few complaints on here I was interested to gauge the opinion of Tigers fans.

There were a few things I was hoping would've been fixed but weren't.

1. Western side canteen - the lines still extend out into the walkway and block EVERYTHING ... the kitchen out the back looked very clean and modern, but when I went to buy a pie - "sorry love the pies aren't warm yet" .. at 1oclock

2. Toilets on Western side still old and dated .. yes soap was provided, but are bars of soap legal?!

3. "Big" screen / scoreboard. The TV in my lounge room outdoes that one.

4. Western stand top deck leg room. While I don't ask for seats the size of Qantas first class, I didnt enjoy getting kneed in the back and having people stand up in front of me when people had to walk past them

One thing they can change for next game though is the Eastern side exit. They funnelled everyone through one small gate and left two roller garage doors closed right next to it which wouldve made everything flow much easier.

Don't wanna sound like I'm having a mad b****. I had a great day on Sunday, despite the result, and think the major changes - ie extra seating etc looked really good and will be beneficial to the club for years to come.

Yeah Tom, I've replied. Hope it was helpful. Very ingenious of you to check the Forum for feedback. Post a copy of your article - I'm sure a lot of us would be interested to read it

Not when you consider that we have got 30k + at ANZ over the years. Since we have been playing at $$$ stadiums our avergae crowds have been higher at those grounds than at LO or CS.
Do this for me. Rank the clubs in Sydney from richest to poorest and then rank the stadiums in Sydney in regards to facilities not atmosphere. You'll see a pattern.

Yeah I knew it was a saints game.Your being a bit pedantic so the last time they beat 20K at a SFS home game was last years Anzac game,28k. Doesnt change a thing though, 36k turned up which is great for league. If it was at Kogarah or Wolloongong only what 18 or 19 could have gone. Playing at small grounds is for teams that will always struggle.

By the way, the last time we got 20k at Cambo? :roll:

P.S , my emoticon is better than yours. ;)

Geez, when you walked into the ground there was a Gelato and Cappuccino stand. Pathetic! But I guess you've gotta keep your in-laws happy. :brick:

The only real thing I think Campbelltown Stadium is really lacking is more undercover seating.
