    Nothing had changed there as of Friday night Mark. We can only wait I guess.

    That drop in membership may correspond with those members who joined purely to come and use the club as a casino, so perhaps that is a win-win situation. We allow the Club to not make the money to cater for never-ending improvements to make the casino/pokie peoples happy, and then we go back to being a club - like we were before those involved took some bad advice from leeches in the industry about pokies becoming a never-ending cash cow.

    Yeah, I saw it as you probably read after ;-)

    And how big is that car park then? I'm not at all familiar with that site. Seems we're talking a sizable one at Parramatta. I mean, if it's not sizable, whats the point?

    I guess my point is, on the car park, there is already congestion on those streets around it the leagues club, and with a few other car parks in the parramatta CBD, there may be other options to be looked at other than a carpark.

    Hence, my suggestion of using the existing free bus and talking to existing car park operators about parking ticket validation at the leagues club.

    Your providing more car parking for members without the outlay of an expensive and long DA process that has no guarantees of success (regardless of DCP compliance ;-) ).

    I am.

    Neither the incumbants nor 3P have my vote yet.

    3P probably favourites but still have to convince me - we first need to see their candidates.

    I'm sure there'll be a wide enough choice between incumbants, 3P and hopefully some other parties.....

    Me too.

    I want to see who is running and for them to actively communicate with me about their plans and background. Get the opportunity to meet with them as a group in person, and pledges for regular opportunities for fans to do so after the elections.

    I'm not the type to buy the complete hype about one ticket/group/party, and will likely split my seven votes, as I did in the FC elections. But first we have to get 7 candidates that make the effort to merit my votes, and so far the 3P group (depending on whom they announce will stand) based on their efforts are ahead in the race to get a majority of my votes.

    just on a car park - i reckon the council would have a vested interest in NOT approving a larger car park - cos it'd take away from the revenue earning parking meters

    On the issue of the auditorium, I know in the old days when I used to go to the club to watch the boxing with friends, it was always in the Cumberland Lounge before they built the restaurant. One time and one time only (I'm talking about boxing matchs that I attended, it could have had happened on other occasions as well, just not that I am aware of), they held it in the auditorium. I can't remember if it was a Lennox Lewis fight, or a Kostya Tszyu fight or Mike Tyson or what. But what I do remember is the place was packed. All the seats were full, they were trying to find more seats and the standing at the back was packed to the hilt as well. I think it could have been Danny Green vs Anthony Mundine actually. They had some deal going with pies and beer for $5 or something or other. Great night but. I'd be interested to know if that still happens. I haven't been able to go to the club and watch many fights since my little boy was born. Does anyone know if that still happens or do they now just put it on in Sterlo's or not show them at all.

    If it doesn't happen, it would be great to see it happen again. That night was advertised and it did pay dividends I reckon. I can't see how it wouldn't have.

    just on your boxing .It is a good revenue raiser Panthers hold reguler Jeff Fenech promotions that do well.Campbelltown are holding the great Billy Dib title fight .So yes it is still a option for your club if they have a venue to suit
    There are a lot of good boxing promoters now looking for places to hold fights

    I've only ever been to one fight night at Panthers and it was a full house crowd as well. That was an experience. In regards to the Eels side of things however, I'm interested to know where the club currently televises the latest big name fights that are shown. Does anyone know if Parra LC has advertised if they are going to show Mundine vs Shannon Taylor in a couple of weeks and if so where in the club. I'll try to find out tomorrow during the day if nobody knows.

    Lucky last post eels81iamagoose and then I will start ignoring them due to the fact you seriously bore me to tears and I am sure not just I but many are sick of all the crap hitting these threads at this point in time. Can we atleast try to keep one free of BS for a while. Post whatever the hell you want, but I ain't biting no more.

    If you honestly believe the rant you have made above maybe your last point should have been that we strategically picked a fight with someone on the site who was an outright moron that would end up getting the moron to fight with us as you did. Thanks. Maybe then we would win a sympathy vote. Cut the X-files paranoia out and get with the times. THE TRUTH IS OUT THERE eels81lostcause.

    My apologies all. Just couldn't hold that one in. Ram summed up the situation much better than me in a previous thread and he hit the nail on the head too on why I didn't go to such lengths. By the way Ram, Thanks, I did agree with it 100%.

    Some of the ideas for improvements in the club sound great, how about improving Footy Heaven as Peter Wynn's Score is light years ahead.....imagine game day if they had a decent store with all the updated gear

    That's an extremely disappointing answer. It tells me that you would rather see Parramatta as a club go backwards than have 3P and Colin Green have anything to do with the place. That tells me that for you, it is not about Parramatta, but about personalities. Therefore, I can no longer take your comments seriously, as they are biased and personal, and not judged on basis or fact.


    From where I'm sitting, it is, tbh.
    3P, and Colin personally, have made every effort to be open and accessible to all people. I've lost count of the amount of times he has offered you, Mits and parra pete the chance to voice your opinions and have your say. Not one of you have come up with anything of substance.

    Then, there is this...... from Colin

    Having Alan Overton along to their personally organised meetings shows that they are willing to work to further the club as a successful enterprise, without bias nor hinderance.




    I 've got no idea what your political and religous persuasions have anything to do with this, especially considering you are anonymous. I, and most others couldn't give a f**k what church you go to, or who you vote for. It is completely irrelevant, and has nothing to do with the argument.



    There is absolutely no similarity at all tbh.
    You may think I'm in 3P's back pocket, but I ain't. There are things they have done which I'm happy about. There are also things that I think stink, but that's the way it goes.
    What I do see however, is a willingness to not only try to see that some things improve around the club, but the intent with which they want to see it happen, and the involvment they are including of the general Parramatta Rugby league club community.
    There is a lot that can be made better about OUR club, (and I'm not talking about car parks) and I look forward to such things being implemented as soon as practically possible.

    It would be nice if you could in future, be a little less personal and a little more balanced and constructive in your views.

    Yes, keeps the personal remarks out of it. Really, they are doing you no favours at all.
