If nothing else there is genuine passion for 1 home ground amongst our supporters and it’s gathering plenty of momentum. Hopefully the Admin of this club does something about it.
I still find it a strange decision to play our home game against the Eels at their home ground. Yeah, yeah i know, it’s “our jungle”. When the “Sydney” Tigers decided to play their home games out of the old Parramatta Stadium it was a disaster and never felt like home. I don’t see this any different. We will obviously get a good gate against the Eels ( weather permitting) but giving up a true home ground advantage to an opposition whose own Leagues club sits directly outside the ground i’m not so sure about.
There are no guarantees obviously, but i often wonder whether 2 points we might jag here or there by playing at our own proper home grounds could be the difference between making/ not making finals. So what financial impact does not making finals have on the club and would making the finals offset financially the money lost by not playing at Bankwest by attracting more sponsorship etc?
