Well after all the talk of the Stadium being a neutral stadium.... in the Paper this morning the government has lied ...after lobbying by the Parramatta club the new stands will be Thornett and Cronin and probable others as well. If this is the case this is PARRAMATTAS STADIUM and NOT a neutral venue .
I hope that our CEO Mr Pascoe gets on the phone soon to confirm if this is the case ,as the supporters of our club including myself have argued that this stadium is the future our club can build on . We have been lied to and bought seating packages under FALSE pretences as the new stadium is PARRAMATTAS RLFC STADIUM and not a neutral venue a refund should be forthcoming from the club if any supporters want out of the packages that they have bought ....I should of known better !
What is Pascoe email address as I would like to send him one expressing my disappointment.
This is funny on so many levels :lol:
How many packages have you got there ?

All the ones that I wanted. I don’t really care what the stands are called. Isn’t it about the financial security of our club? Isn’t that what you and Gallagher have been parroting for months?

Never considered it as a home ground its always been Parramattas locale first and foremost. Short term solution only.

I have no problem with the stands being named after past Rugby League greats who have played on the site?

I like how some are greatly offended about what a stand is called, yet have no issue with our home ground being in the heart of Parramatta. That’s okay, but don’t dare name a stand after a Parra player 🤔

Offended ,was the naming of the stands made clear before the purchase of memberships NO ! Was the stadium sold as being neutral YES ! There are still people living today that believe a contract is a contract and believe what they are being sold is what they get ... It is not what the stand is called as if I knew that we would not of continued our memberships as the major reason for getting behind the WSS was it was a neutral venue and location had no bearing we should of been given the choice .!

When we went to Concord to select all our seats there were huge seating maps and prints of the stands ,they were not called the Thornett or Cronin stands !

Nothing !!!that Is what a neutral ground is the stands were to be lite as each individual stake holder on game day ,the Stadium is called BankWest ..Parramatta have NO right to name anything the last I knew the tax payer of NSW built it not Parramatta football club . I am sure Souths supporters will be happy playing out of that stadium full time with Parramatta names all over it ..remember ANZ is a neutral ground the way WSS should be .
This is going to blow up in the government faces and deservingly so!

Especially when you had no issue with our home ground being in the heart of Parramatta, on the site of Parramatta’s old home ground. But yeah, the name of the stands are next level.

Was never going to be neutral. It has always been their turf and always will be. While ever we play there, it will be as guests only.
We have committed to four years they have committed for 25 years - no doubt that came with conditions.

No great shock to hear a politician has lied Gladys is probably trying to secure more votes in the parra area.The government do have a very tight election in March
