    It's taken me a while to comment on the ground - I've just managed to get out of the car park! The SFS is a great ground, but they charge $20 to park in what euphemistically they call a 'car park' and is really just a grassed oval, and then it is a 90-minute effort to get out.

    My question to the NRL is this. What will you do next year if we play the Cowboys in a finals match? Will you continue to punish us, or would you prefer the gate takings of a further 4,000 or more people - not to mention the extra costs associated with hiring the SFS over Brookvale Oval?

    How is it fair that a team finishing 5th and 6th get a home final over a team finishing 4th? Sure, I can understand it if we were playing most other clubs, but it's now been proven that the Cowboys don't travel and 16,600 was a good effort, I believe.

    Interesting statistics, that Melbourne in their own city of Sports loving Fans,and with NRL $5mill per year assistance get 4th lowest attendance.

    Haven't seen any Media scrutiny about this at all:dodgy:

    The other one Team Teams - NQ and GC are also worse than the Peninsula.

    Interesting thread . Funny how 5 other Sydney clubs get better crowd averages than us , the real eye opener is Parramatta .

    I have driven to past games at the SFS and had the same issue with parking, traffic etc. This year I drove to Manly Vale and caught the bus to the game and back.

    The trip in was a bit longer as the driver took the wrong turn but I was back at manly vale in about 20 minutes after the game.

    no way would I ever drive in again when the free buses are on as they are great.
