    Robina's problem is no protection from the heat

    I wonder how long until we starting adding roofs not just for rain, but like a big shade cloth

    Think that’s part of the idea with leaving an end open in Townsville, allows for air circulation.

    it's a wonder he hasn't whinged that it's not fair for people who are afraid of heights

    I'm actually afraid of heights, so I cry myself to sleep,and not bore others witless telling them so.
    Remember getting into a cable car in Switzerland long ago,I stood in the middle with colouring my underdogs,whilst a girl standing next to me was crying out loud.

    The sheer terror of going to NIB LOL.

    private boxes aren't big enough and it scares off wealthy corporate claustrophobic's

    the NRL can't get anything right

    You seem the type who would be afraid of a lot of things.

    Yep I'm afraid of my better half,of my team losing.
    What i'm not afraid of, is responding to perpetual whiners.The ones that live off and breed negativity.
    Thank whoever they are few and far between. Bit like full moons and vampires.

    Can we possibly cut the shit talk and keep this thread focussed on stadium discussion?

    Different countries have different building standard. In regards to Stadiums, I don't know if it's in the BCA but Australia seems to conform with the convention provided by the leading Architectural firms that Tiers shouldn't be steeper than 34 degrees. That French Stadium looks pretty darn steep, and maybe more than 34 degrees.
    Most developed counties follow the above rule. certainly with new stadia. Though there's the odd exceptions from Spain like the top tiers of the Bernabeu, the current Estadio Mestalla and Estadio Benito Villamarín. Toyota Stadium in Japan and the damn steep eastern stand top tier at Durban's Kings Park.

    Also likely more expensive building a steeper stand (more materials, safety fixtures etc) or bothersome with council height limits and massing.

    It shouldn’t be that hard. Just base Allianz on a newer,, better version of suncorp with the same crowd numbers. And Anz should be a newer better version of suncorp but with another tier to fit 70k.

    I was sideline :)
    Old Trafford would be the biggest climb I've made but special mention to Suncorp where I ended up in the gods for the all stars game
