The NRL & Peter Vlandys completely missing the mark with the proposed standing on suburban grounds the heartland of community and the presence of the suburban warfare of rugby league

There is a distinct difference between the club's indicated that have a retrospective piece of community built into there DNA. Fans aren't asking for mini-mega stadiums that are devoid of character without a hill or local keepsake that makes their home ground feel so unique.. the recent conceptual development of Manly Sea Eagles home ground being right on the money! But the association and ownership of a team has to relate to the people within said community teams like nthqldcowboys SeaEagles PenrithPanthers have the unique advantages of stability in their location and community base.

The development of the game, leading fans back to the grandstand has to relate to the people within the local jurisdiction allowing that sense of ownership developing access to the club.

Our fans thrive on the passion that is built on the back of hard work and development to install rugby league as the greatest game on earth they deserve nothing less than the best when optioning that piece of turf that stands for so much more than a few bums on seats!

Create a future that represents what our game is all about!

As it stands what team plays out of Liverpool?

The NRL has missed the mark entirely, nothing will change by making multiple clubs play out of the same venue to ensure these grounds are adequately used based on funding..

There has to be a reflection on community and that's just not happening with the current plans.

With the current infrastructure spending to create jobs and focus on our economy the conversation has to be had to get the right amount of funding to do the right thing by these projects and get it done right instead of minor upgrades that do nothing for Rugby League

The demand from fans was to push for suburban grounds to be redone! Huge benefit for local and state revenues...

Suburban grounds packed to the rafters !!!

Amazing how this local suburban ground thing works.. #community

Now the sudden hype call for more focus on suburban grounds to be utilised

Going back to community ties/local footy ties/suburban grounds - NRL clubs would have no problem fielding 3 grades if the main game filled out #adayatthefooty pushes the same opinion for most

More must be done to ensure people are turning up on gameday!!

Our game needs a kick in the pants to evolve into what it should be as the premier game in NSW - talent pool is massive numbers should reflect the dollars $$$

Yep bums on seats is what makes our game great... Construction and infrastructure will push the game forward at those suburban grounds and the community will be better for it... ATM there is a focus on cutting costs instead of raising revenue -

Now to focus on ensuring the hill isn't touched and investing in the other 9 suburban grounds - they create a standing of the teams within the community and it shows on gameday.

Sunday footy and suburban grounds is a huge draw card, with peak times more should be done to elevate crowd figures

If you think Leichhardt is special talk to footy teams that are still lucky enough to have a suburban ground in play

You want to develop the fanbase stop telling people what they want.. it's a debacle knowing that suburban grounds have been overlooked and developed to push fans into a "cheaper alternative" the community association of the NRL relies on people turning out on game day!

Awesome to see the NRL taking the game back to the people creating enterprising local footy and building through community

Have to say with the NRL willing to create innovate and build there is no limit to how big the game can grow

Rugby League lives in the veins of many it just needs to option game day as an event so many options to install community bearings and enhance the product!

The Game needs people at the gates!

Fair to say 15k at Kogarah does more for the game then 25k at one of the bigger stadiums - massive difference in gameday experience television rhetorical effect on the community turn hype into dollar signs at the gate #spendapennymakeapenny

bums on seats kicks tv ratings arse all day long.. and creates next level fans!

Footy clubs NEED local support and you can't have that travelling 20km to a ground with no heart or passion running through it. The game can't be run off the back of a successful game between the most competitive clubs want people to sit through the cold days/nights we have to provide more.

Let's talk about NRL crowds in Sydney if we want to get serious about our standing in the landscape.

Seems to reason the agenda surrounds numbers at the gate - the game doesn't realise the flow on effect of being able to put up a sold out sign..

NRL has to have it drilled into them footy is about just as much about community as the local postie!!

Yep bums on seats is what makes our great game great.. Construction and infrastructure will push the game forward at those suburban grounds and the community will be better for it... ATM there is a focus on cutting costs instead of raising revenue

At the numbers the game revolves around community playing games in concrete jungles with empty seating everywhere takes away from the love affair the game delivers

What your missing is the DNA of rugby league - the NRL has tried and failed at trying to make footy more cost effective!

The NRL not getting the memo about home games and the local communities aligned with footy clubs.
