    Souths moved to ANZ 12 years ago and you’re still struggling to work out why this game was played there?

    Decent crowd, should be more for a top of the table all Sydney clash but given where crowds are at in the NRL you can’t sniff at any crowd over 20k these days. Perfect game for a redeveloped allianz in a couple of years time!

    Yeah but you do grasp the logistics?

    The logistics are Redfern is full of hipsters not Souths fans. Souths has built it’s name on being a team of the lower class blue working collar man. Have you seen house prices in south Sydney?

    It’s a financial move, anz pay a royal sum for them to play there. It’s a shame clubs dont have the fans and corporates to not require this compromise but such are the realities of club revenue v expenditure.

    Apparently financially it was better for them and they believed that their fan base has moved west.

    Clubs have got to do what ever they need to do survive.

    I reckon they would’ve got more people and it would’ve looked great on tv.
    That could encourage others to go next time.

    Their fan base moved west?

    Did they do a poll or something?

    Yes.

    Remember that map a few years ago where NRL members could enter their postcode and the map would show Sydney postcodes broken down by the most popular team?
    Surprisingly South's won quite a few postcodes in the far South West that most wouldve expected to be the heart of Tigers country.

    I guess if you're a sharks fan used to a strength as a community club, with very strong support with in the area and representing a geographical area with less outward migration and more intergenerational ties to said area, it could be hard to fathom how a fan diaspora works.

    What exact year was this special map?
    They moved ten years ago apparently .

    I didn’t enter my details into this map.
    Ive been an NRL club member for ever.
    Btw
    I don’t give a shit where they live .
    Playing club footy in a stadium that was built for the Olympics is never going to work as a spectacle.
    Only a complete dope would suggest otherwise.

    Only a complete dope would suggest moving a home game to the away teams stadium.
