    We'll soon have so many choices.So little time.If we can't crack it for crowds after this, we need to be nuked.

    That NQ article is a little misleading. There won’t be car parks at the stadium like the current dung heap but there is currrently a car park over the road at the new joint, there will also be parking within walking distance (im tipping the v8 track area will be utilised to some extent) and there’s a decent sized shopping centre about 1.5kms away that they will put shuttle buses on like there is from the Willows shopping centre to 1300’s.

    Looks like there will actually be seats in those corners next to the western stand @Suitman, they would want to be giving them tickets away......

    For people in NQ this is so massive. I couldn’t be more pumped for this.

    Lol. I was going to post the same thing to you @beave ………..Maybe the seats will be angled up to accommodate viewing sight lines, or maybe they will put seats in and sell them as restricted viewing?
    I suppose we'll just have to wait and see mate.

    Beautiful stadium but i'm still shocked at those NW and SW upper corners.

    I presume it’s just a economic compromise.

    In order to have those corners have complete sight lines you’d have to have set the corporate facilities further back. I’m guessing they see the corporate facilities as more valuable than the lost seats.

    The easier solution would have been to adjust the angle of the turns on the cheaper stands and bring them in to the front of the western. Would have lost a few seats overall but at least all the seats available you could sell at the correct price. The way they've done it, at least half of those top tiers mentioned you are only going to be able to 1/3 of the field at best.

    That would’ve been a more expensive build though, wouldn’t it?

    This way everything is uniform, presumably that makes the process cheaper.

    The best solution now is just to not put seats in those spots.

    At least it’s on the TV side.

    The stadium needs to have the number 3 in front of it's capacity. Sounds more impressive.

    If you take those seats out and it drops to 29,700 it's not the same.

    Fair point, it’s a pretty minor issue in the end.

    Will easily be the best club ground in the NRL.

    Beave, you've got to stop beating yourself up about those corners.
    It will be what it will be.

    Nrl should have been owning project years before that

    Written by a typical one eyed ,live in a bubble fumbler.
    The State Govt received a token amount from the AFL.The Govt should have told the AFL to get knotted,the ground was to be changed to rectangular for 3 rectangular codes ,in the first place after the OPs.

    The GWS took State Govt cash, for Blacktown and the local Council's money, running into the millions,in order to train ,live and occasionally play there.
    Then they turned tail and moved to Breakfast Creek and the Showground.
    The Swans have had hundreds of millions spent on the SCG upgrade.

    Still playing the spin doctor for the AFL.The AFL are Jonny come lateleys and work on the entitlement philosophy.

    The grubby AFL sucks taxpayers money regularly from Govt,and has been doing so for yonks..
    It's only now the rectangular codes are finally getting some of it.And deservedly so.

    Utter spin bollocks.There were 3 rectangular codes not just one in the mix.

    The State Govt didn't go begging to the AFL for cash,the AFL intruded wanting their own way and offered a token, repeat token amount.And guess what ,then they flicked ANZ because Swan's fans hated it.The rectangular codes are stuck FTM with a oval.
    ANZ was to be rectangular,there was absolutely no need for any of the 3 rectangular codes
    to intervene.That was the promise.
    If the State Govt had any nouse,they would have told the AFL to get stuffed.ANZ was intended to become a rectangular stadium after the Olympics and the entitlement code moved in to create the problems it has for their rectangular code competition.

    GWS were plain out and out deceptive liars ,using the taxpayers' and ratepayers' money to set up a training ground, then move to Homebush.Then get a new you beaut stadium at Spot the Less stadium.

    Geez you've been indoctrinated like those in Victoria.
    Imagine the rectangular codes hypothetically arranging for the MCG to be rectangular.There would be a meltdown.

    You need to do research and not slavishly boot lick everything the AFL says, and ignore at times what they end up doing.

    The promise wasn't delivered on because the AFL got in, worked hard and pulled political strings whilst the NRL sat back like dopes and did nothing. That would be fine so long as the NRL learned something but they didn't. AFL is still kicking the NRLs arse in political influence 20 years later.
