    I like the idea of a big modern stadium - for Finals and GF - but not for minor games. Its a horrible feeling at a game when you have 20k in an 85k ground. Hollow.

    AND - looks bad on TV.

    Pride of the League mate lol....

    I have to have a slight dig at the Rorters..... how has trying to buy premierships worked out for them???:wacky:


    How the hell do they still have 750k spare in their cap??[/QUOTE]

    Finances are a funny thing.
    Manly tried and bought a couple of Premierships but this year all that cash juggling has seemingly caught up with them.
    The Sharks and the Rorters do seem to have a money tree that keeps giving at the moment.
    Kiwi Russ bought the Bunnies and a pack of forwards that got a Premiership
    Doust bought Bennett and it got a result despite ingrained internal issues with the Dragons.

    As for why the Rorters still have money left it might be because they are using the Melbourne Storms accountants:bag:

    True what you say alie........I mean Rad, public transport is important to access ANZ and it is reasonably easy for me but more difficult in much of Souths heartland out around Maroubra, Malabar, Matraville, La Perouse etc.

    a move from sharing ANZ with the Dodgies back to sharing SFS with the Rorters Bazza?
    Bunny supporters will tell you while they don't get big crowds at ANZ they do get a cash incentive to play there.
    I was thinking more along the lines of Blue Tongue stadium:rolleyes: as an option

    But are we discussing where we would like to see Souths play their home games or where is the best place for Souths to play their home games.

    I hope we don't play home games at the SCG whilst ANZ Stadium gets rebuilt. The SCG isn't a good ground for Rugby League as you sit way too far from the field.

    aren't they in the middle of rebuilding Parramatta stadium at the moment ?
    Will it be operational by the time they start to rebuild sfs and anz?.
    If not Blue tongue stadia then maybe rent Sharky Park off the sharkies when they are playing away games or even the Choccy soldiers home ground or Concord oval.
    Options abound and I am sure Russ will come up with a satisfactory temporary site.

    seems like the best option BUT where to play while ANZ is being redeveloped?. The Bunnies and Dragons had a lot of good times at the G.

    Given that Souths have such a widespread supporter base they could use a variety of grounds.
