    This.

    Why are people still asking this? We've known it since the start of the year.

    today's paper said we were 500 grand down this season, that's losing 100 grand a month, awesome news about new sponsor!! If we had a decent ground we wouldn't be in this financial mess

    well why are we so much in debt Fro? Do you reckon Brookie is top notch? half a million in 5 months, what do you reckon? [hr]
    We just need to hold out until the new tv deal!! If the Libs would give us the $15-20 million to fix up Brookie like they poured money into Saints we would be commercially set. A 50 grand crowd tonight will help enormously, not sure what percentage we share with other team, if its half, 25000 customers is awesome news!!

    Dude, Brookie sucks as a ground, plain and simple. Hopefully Warringah council can steal money off the Rats as well as us, so something can be done to the place.

    The local members for parliament should be ashamed of themselves for all the infrastructure / or lack there of in this demographic.

    Fark off Ryan.
    If you've ever been to Parra or SFS or Penrith or pretty much any other ground, Brookie is the bollocks.

    The only two points to make against it are as a corporate or as a player dealing with the surface.

    As a fan, it is the best ground. Leichhardt is 2nd.

    As a fan yes but as an avenue to make the club more money by attracting more people to games, No way....

    As a Manly fan I love Brookie as I have great memories of the place. But if you think it is not in need of a major revamp you are off your head.

    Apart from the money, with our record in Brisbane in recent years, we'll have to rename it our Fortress SunCorp. Take games there every year.

    Always feels like a home game up here when you go. Suncorp and Skilled. Its hard to explain just how many Manly fans turn out for it.

    So the bogans from Vegas get 13 games a year & we get 10?

    Real fair.

    **** them. They should be put in homes & we given inheritances. That's how I see it.
    I'm betteter than anyone from QLD. Worship me.

    Well, apparently real life makes you ****s better than me. **** off. I'm angry at the way everything is weighted to your undeserved benefit. Inbreds.
