    Considering that council hasn't even sat yet i believe . It is fake news from fake news central , news limited .

    Murdoch and duplicity are the same thing

    Starting to bombard council with messages about the embarrassment that was the stadium. The surface was poor and seeing a non working screen is just shithouse. Everything should have been ready to go round 1. All work completed in the off season.

    Totally agree
    However not sure if the surface is due to massive lack of rain.

    Tap water just doesn't work as well on any plant or grass and it's been hot and windy as well. That would be my guess on the surface as can't see what would have changed otherwise.

    But the PA is an embarrassment and the screen a big joke

    Was full of sand and bare in a few areas. May not have looked it at the ground but from above it was clearly not healthy.

    Well done, however I think a group would have to organise a "group whinge".

    I was involved in a group a few years ago when I lived in Sydney. It was to do with airport noise.
    Basically everyone from the group had to phone John Howards office on a particular afternoon.
    It just ties up the phones and they can't do any other business. Just one way to get the message across.

    Everyone on here should phone the council on a Monday morning at 9am after every home game.
    After a few weeks the poor bastards would be going into work knowing full well another round of calls
    would have to answered.

    Field looked like it had been top dressed with sand that week. I would envisage and hope it is just the changeover in grass seasons?? I know that's the story at AFL/Cricket grounds like SCG.

    The topdressing of sand had to have been done Sat morning as it WASN'T there Fri afternoon when the boys and I were finishing off setting up the banner.

    The cnr area closest to the band was just threadbare, subsequently that had the most sand.

    Looks like they were doing something to the scoreboard yesterday afternoon.
    Probably found out it wasn't plugged in.

    Just send the parts we need up here. The YA won’t mind a curved roof, hey they could even use the scoreboards as a roof

    Seems like such a tremendous waste of money, especially stadium Australia (forget which is which). Refurb would be much more cost effective.
    We're still going to end up with an oval stadium. One would hope it's going to be designed to effectively convert into a rectangular stadium, but that won't happen.

    ANZ is at Hombush, Allianz is Next to the SCG

    Says rectangle for ANZ (homebush). Probably cheaper in the long run to build again. The refurb was very expensive as well. Now will be totally new not breaking down in another 5 years but a lot of money for 5,000 less seats and a roof

    Both are to be rectangle as @Big Al's links show.

    I wonder how plausible using old parts of the demolished stadia might be - would be great if possible. I know McDonald Jones Stadium got a leftover big screen from the Pirtek rebuild.

    Maybe Venues NSW should take ownership of CCS?
