Been discussed before, but after today, where we played a team who were 0-4 and conceded 141 points in there first 4 games, a side who we have the best winning percentage against in the league, and we dish up that.
That is not even taking in to account the Tommy factor, which alone should have inspired a win.
We have a shocking record at Leichhardt, we need to ditch the 4 home grounds and get one and stick with it.
We gain zero advantage from our supposed suburban grounds, we are wasting our time, make the call and let the fans whinge, but at least we will have a real home that the players can actually call home.
I am old and I get the heritage thing, but it is useless if it doesn't get you an advantage, get with the 21st century Wests Tigers and get us one home ground, the nomadic days are not working and need to be abandoned.

I agree but where will we get the money for it?

We can just use Bank West or Stadium Australia, it doesn't matter really, it will just give the players some form of consistency, they are just a bunch of traveling nomads, and playing like a park team now

It's not the answer.

I totally disagree there needs to be a complete reboot of the organisation full stop , this has been coming for years ! The use of multi grounds has to end .This is a psychological issue and the club needs to rectify it ! The team the club and its supporters need one home ground ....Imo at seasons end the announcement is made that this will end in 2023 and the team will be playing fulltime out of the New Sydney Football Stadium ,the team is rudderless and so is the club time to find a home .

Did I correctly hear, in the pre-game show, that the Cowboys last win at Leichhardt was in 2000?

SFS for me
Leichhardt was supposed to be packed today but you could still see grass on the hill
Covid restrictions ?

All they care about is charging $60 for mugs to sit behind the posts... It's a cash cow nothing more

It’s not even a boutique experience
Standing on a hill 😂
I’m all for the new football stadium at Moore park .

...ahead of you....
Joey was interviewing a young magpies Reggie's player today I think Simpkins and asked him "do you play out of lidcombe?"
Poor kid looked totally confused and mumbled something about Cambo I think... Players don't know what's going on... We are a basket case

To hear it called “the 8th wonder of the world”, is as embarrassing and annoying as hearing souths called the “pride of the league “

Was that when it was 0-0 at halftime?

Leichhardt is unquestionably one of the great football experiences for the average fan. It has a spirit and heart that can't be matched in a mega-stadium.

This is, of course, totally unrelated to our performances there.

We should be able to perform at any ground, it's just more disappointing when it's in front of a full house of die-hard fans.

I wouldn't care of we made Leichhardt our one home ground. But the fact we can't decide after 21 seasons on one home ground says how clueless the club is.
Starting up a club. Pick a name, pick your colours pick your four home grounds!!! Its one of the easiest decisions.
Does anyone here live in 4 homes in the one city?
Morons.
Cue, 56 paragraphs of dribble from jerky.

Actually we don't.

56.47% win rate at LO (48/85)
44.05% WR at CSS (37/84)
30.77% WR at Bankwest (4/13)
41.85% WR at Homebush (36/86)
38/10% WR at SFS (16/42)

All-time win record is 43%, so we are a 13% better side at LO.

I would love to travel back in time, make you the CEO of Wests Tigers year 2000 and have you try telling the fans we will no longer play at Leichhardt or Campbelltown, or worse, we'll play at neither.

Dragons still play at Wollongong mate.

Last 8 seasons would make interesting reading ...or even 2021 0/1 0% beaten by the wooden spoon favorites
