Not long until pre season starts so thought I'd get the thread going again for another year.

It's a shame to see such a potentially talented player wiped before he started but well done to the Cowboys for acting swiftly on it.

Can't wait for kick off. So much crap on TV at the moment.

2 more sleeps. Here's hoping for a great game to sweep away the pre-season garbage.

What a contrast to last year when the refs dominated the opening round. Hopefully this is an indicator for the rest of the year.

How did the Cowboys not grab Thomas Flegler before the Broncs did ??

A Tully Tigers junior and plenty of size and ticker in the lad too.

He had an awesome game. By contrast the Cowboys were absolutely woeful.

"It gives us the ability to control the moisture level in the profile through a heavy deluge, but it also gives us the ability to push air through the profile as well," Bankwest Stadium head curator Graeme Logan said.

"It almost works like a reverse-cycle air conditioner in that you can push moisture into the profile and also remove it. In a huge deluge of rain - say if you got 60mm or 70mm - you can pull the moisture out of the surface and have it back in playing condition within 20 to 25 minutes.


What a top ground the new Bankwest Stadium is.

Shielded from most of the prevailing winds,- the punters just about under cover too.

I was at the stadium on Friday night watching my depleted team trying to win a game against the Eels.

The stadium is great to view the game in. There is ample walk areas between the stands and facilities such as eateries, bars and toilets. Prices for food is very reasonable, and the variety to choose from to, with dedicated sections for types of food. So less chance for cross contamination.

As for weather, I will say you would still feel the wind, especially if you are still sitting near the tunnels on the concourse areas, and sitting closer to the field on the lower course you will cop some rain still. But what is a footy game if you cannot get wet and muddy when it rains?

It is not as intimidating as Suncorp Stadium, where it has more levels and the balconies of you getting close to the game. But none the less, it is better way better then what was there, and any other ground in Sydney to watch a game. So it gets a thumbs up from me.

But why was that stadium cheaper then it is to build the new one for the SFS and is going to cost that nearly 2.5 times more? They hardly get to fill a quarter of it anyways, and they should build something more similar to Bankwest. If they want a more "premier" rectangle stadium, then they need to do that at ANZ, where the stadium is centre of the population of Sydney where it is easier to access it then the Sydney CBD.
