I heard that the problem was at one end, the end Manly were defending from, evidently the grass was run barren from the amount or lack there of a defensive pattern?

So if Baz had more staff, the grass situation at Lottoland wouldn't be as bad....

They should transplant the hill grass on to the oval. It is always lush.

State Trust. Make the ground a state trust so it can be properly maintained in the manner befitting a major sporting arena for the area. It's not that complicated, really.

So are you taking the piss that it's actually open to dog walkers during the week? I really hope so.

Cromer 1 & 2 are synthetic surface, 3-5 are grass & vary in quality.

I've played summer soccer on Rat park & it was very lush indeed. Probably helps that it isn't open to the public (& their dogs).

That will do me. A ground used by an NRL team is open to dog walkers during the week. Given the amount the council receives in rent that is bull****. Would love to see someone and their great Dane be allowed onto old Trafford or Arsenals the Emirates in London during the week.

Anyone from 6am to 6pm can walk on the field and use it..it is open to the public
Crazy and I agree no one in the general should really be allowed to just use it as their local dog walking patch.

Re rat park that is what’s needed at Brookvale Oval but won’t happen.

Crikey, the pic of the field looks like one of those barren highway drop in pitches they have been using for the cricket!

I think it's good.
Puts pressure on the council to have it looking good by kick off for our first home game.
I imagine they are trying to push Council to stump up some money too.

Regan likes to boast that the merged Council has greater resources at its disposal, due in part to savings brought on by rationalisation of previously duplicated services.

So put some money into the Northern Beaches most famous sporting facility Mayor Regan. Or head home to Burwood or Ashfield (or wherever) where you belong - handing over the mayoral reins to someone who actually cares about the Sea Eagles and their future.

They are bloody soft. You should’ve played on Lake Park in the 1970’s, that was a surface akin to concrete.

Brookie should be looking just a good with the same council looking after them all
