My favourite ground is and always will be Leichhardt oval, have been going there for over 50 years BUT neither it our Campbelltown are good enough anymore.The new stadium at Parra is the only way to go to take our club into the future.I have no doubt with our supporter base we should get bigger crowds there than anyone else including the slippery slugs.
Its an easy decision and i hope the club makes it soon

I'd like to see the revamped ANZ before we commit to a new stadium for long-term.

I also have a sneaky suspicion myself that the country and NZ games are not just an opportunity to engage with alternative fan bases (and raise capital, in the NZ instance), but dilute the LO/CSS match pool and see how the fans react.

They might consider going down to 2 games LO/CSS at some stage, or just rip the band-aid off as suggested.

The major issue as I see it is this: the best games and atmospheres are generated when lots of fans from both clubs attend. It will always be a lesser maximum experience if you have an out-of-town team. But the LO/CSS capacities are such that it doesn't really make sense to play local derbies there because you can realistically do much better than capacity. So you are stuck with the out-of-town games.

Imagine therefore, long-term, if you keep 1 game each for LO and CSS, who do you play there? Certainly not Tigers-Souths or anything like that... Tigers v Souths as the only LO game of the season could potentially be bursting at the seams.

The crowds at cambelltown have been ordinary for years. If we built a new stadium there would be even get over 15,000 to a game?

Wouldn't think so - judging on past performances.
