    Have you been in the top tier at ANZ? The steepness of the top tier is why I never sit there

    Well
    Here is the argument.
    If there are exactly the same amount of seats with the same leg room, seat size etc and you are in the last row.
    Are you really any closer?
    Or
    Are you just higher in the air but still the same distance from the field?

    Well you won’t like the new ANZ, going to be even steeper.

    The viewing angle is improved.

    Would you prefer to watch a television as close to straight on as possible or off to the side? Same principle, but even more important because if you’re on top of the action it allows you to see more of the unfolding play.

    So
    If I stand on a ladder will my TV look better than if I take 3 steps backwards from it?

    I think you maybe oversimplifying matters. I haven’t ever done the trig to prove it but I know EPL grounds are heaps better than ANZ or Allianz.

    I imagine a higher view will cut out the problem of restricted views.

    ...but does it make you any closer?

    If I hammer a nail in the ground and tie a Ten foot piece of string to it.
    Is the other end of the string closer to nail when it’s laid out straight on the ground or up in the air directly above the nail?

    :)

    Well, that’s not what I said.

    The point was to illustrate it’s an improved viewing angle.

    Yeah but I don’t even dispute that
    I only asked are you actually any closer.

    As I said I have never sat down and done the trig. It makes you feel closer that’s for sure.

    This was the original ANZ upgrade plan, might give you some idea. Looks to me like people will be closer.

    Your higher on the vertical but closer on the horizontal, so it feels like your still close to the sideline and looking down on the play rather than being distant from the play.

    If you simply multiply the angle of the 79th seat in bay 118 by how long it takes you got get a beer then divide that by the number of random Souffs jerseys you spot on the way its a pretty good indicator of view you're gonna get. Everyone knows that.

    They don't have this in QLD. They only have Banjo lessons and Banjo maintenance classes. I had to go to MT Druitt for a year just to learn the basics.

    Well that’s another issue


    That’s circumference v length.
    Not taking into account energy created by friction

    Bit of a mine field.

    So the sharks are gonna plea to the league to have this game in the future always on a sunday
    which is good sentiment. its the better timeslot for this game.

    however, its not like the game snuck up out of the bushes ..we have known about this since November.

    So...what did the club do to ensure a bigger crowd? given we KNOW that the Thursday games last year were bad for crowds
    (if you averaged our three Thursday games at home last year the Av is 9320...which is poor)

    a more proactive approach to these games is needed
