Don't know how many of you noticed but there were certainly some "heated" discussions between patrons and security, particularly when people that had been standing just behind the sitting bays were asked to move to allow the passage flow…As good a ground as it is, I am afraid with a big crowd, the old ground struggles..I was actuallky a little concernd about some of the younger kids at the ground as well, not just because we were packed like sardines but also because the language used by some was ordinary, to say the least...

Yep, my wife, 4yr old son and myself were on the Mary st 40mtr line and had a bloke decide to stand directly in front of us on the walkway. Proceeded to tell us to f off. Not to mention all the swearing from the crowd but what reall pissed me off was the turkey (unfortunately a tigers supporter) who decided to use my cars boot lid as a garbage bin.

Well "mate", if your a member here, your an utter tool. Get a life and be considerate of others. Bloody mongrel.

I was sitting on the hill.

Great atmosphere, but **** its comfortable. No leg room, sun directly in your face and beer cans everywhere.

Loved the atmosphere, but jeepers creepers sat in front of the biggest tool of a Tigers supporter you have ever heard. Did nothing all game but scream, whinge, berate almost every tigers player (esp Robert Lui) oh my god. Other Tigers supporters were chirping back at him (well done!!)

Did anyone else have the privilige of sitting on the hill side on the 40 metre line on the wooden seats on the northern side?

Worse thing was he has a boy and the boy was just copying his father screaming and badmouthing his own team all game. Yes they are paying supporters and I myself do not like Tim Sheens but I dont spend the entire game screaming it out at the top of my lungs and then after berating the guys all game, then have the hide to cheer when your team wins!! LOSER!!

...ahead of you....
Its a bugger getting there right on kick off when its chokkas, usually arrive earlier -did 3/4's of a lap before chuckin a ueey and settling on standing near the sign behind the posts, hard when youve a youngster you need to find a spot to see from too.
Luckily some good friends got us stand seats for the 2nd spell

see, this is where simply supply and demand should start to be used

If the capacity is approx 19,000 then the club should start to slowly raise the price of tickets. It keeps the tools away, probably improves the atmosphere and the club makes more money.
although we are a long way off getting 19,000 to each and every game…
