    The noise at the new stadium is going to be a key feature. It is incredible. This is a key part of a home ground advantage.

    When we are attacking the decibels rise. The PA is encouraging people to chant, if not, the people with the drums get it going.

    How can we take a leaf from NFL fans playbook. NFL crowds make the most noise when their team is defending. D-Fence signs and all. How can we get the crowd to be deafening when our side is defending. It will lift the team and drowns out the play calling for the opposition.

    Aussie fans are almost silent when the side is defending. Rising to cheer a big hit or a try saver after the event.

    It's a fair point.

    But we need to be quiet so they can communicate

    It's a bit different though as the noise when the home team is defending is to make playcalling impossible for the opposition. Especially on third down.

    The 'Bullshit' chant yesterday was pretty good. Haven't heard it that loud in a long time.

    That chant should go up on this forum every time @Avenger posts one of his shit predictions.

    Did you do a prediction? You fence sitting sheepish merkin?

    Edit: you did but every tough choice was made with predictable fence sitting with deliberate smartarse diversion.

    Will Arthur be retained: who knows ? BHAHAHAHAHA.

    That’s why you are a sheep. You actually care if you are ever proven wrong on a pissy footy forum. Make a decision you knob jockey!!

    I was pleased to see that the incident which caused the bullshit chant was called out buy the fox merkins. That was a dead set dive, yet even after a review he still got a penalty.

    On a golf course he probably does if only to not have to blame himself entirely. If you meant that as a double entendre however, I'd suggest that he is blue and gold to the core however disinterested he may seem at times.

    I don’t doubt his passion for the Eels but he is a massive procrastinator and I’m going to keep exposing him like you know what.

    Forgot to mention I finally met @The Colonel at the ground yesterday. Gee we’ve had some differences in opinion over the years. He’s a very wise man and devout Eel.

    I however always valued his opinions. Really miss his posts. Hope this shout out prompts a return.
