    I am thinking of heading down to the game this week but if I do, I am going to sit in the stands as old age is starting to weary me and i wouldn't mind just having a chat with my Dad whilst the game is on.

    Has anyone sat in the Arko stand before, and is it worth paying the extra $10 to sit in the Jane Try Stand?

    Cheers
    Dan

    I think the Arko stand is generally pretty good.  Sat in it numerous times, tried the Jane Try Stand which gives a slightly better view but not much better.

    I am in the Arko sand this year good view epecially when the game is being played at the Southern end.  Sold out B4 season started with season ticket holders, sponsors etc.  Jane Try is a great view but is as tight as Sardines

    Provided you get a seat between the 40m lines the JT stand is by far the better view. Though as Wheel has stated is very very squeezy and once you are seated, unless you have an aisle seat then that is where you will be for the day.

    It is interesting to note that so many "I would not sit anywhere but the Hill" supporters are now venturing to the western side of the ground, I guess it means that we are all getting a bit older and are seeking some comforts that didn't seem that important just a few years ago.

    I used to always sit in the KA stand, only ventured to the hill in the last few years, however some of the fools on the hill have me thinking of getting stand seats again next season.

    More that it will be one of my last games and I wouldn't mind seeing it better and chatting to my dad through it.

    However the hill would be fine, if there were more room.

    Now there are more people there it is less fun to be sitting squashed with half a view
