@Mitch @The WheelSimilar to my comments after being there for the tiger game, the ground is much improved, however the loud speakers, pa announcer and music kill the atmosphere.
It is deafening, and you can’t hear the crowd. It is especially bad in breaks in play, the crowd was starting a manly chant and it was drowned out by 20 pointless seconds of a disco hit. Later the ground announcer tries to get a chant going, possibly unaware that the crowd has been completely subdued by the relentless noise pollution emanating from the control room.
In my old age I moved from the hill to the Jane Try about 4 seasons ago. On the hill in those days you couldn’t hear the PA at all, not sure what it’s like now. In the JT the PA is deafening and very annoying.
To @Mitch and @The Wheel
My reply after the Tigpies game reflects your comments @SeaEagleRock8 . I sat on the hill and it was a really poor experience with blaring pa and flamethrowers. The PA actually subdues the crowd and the chants are less these days which really sucks the atmosphere.
State Budget being handed down tomorrow.
Funds for Brookvale Oval expected to be announced - not specified if it’s a full rebuild or minor upgrades.
Hopefully some good news tomorrow.
Trawled all budget papers and Zip Zilch.Nothing heard, out.
I think it’s significant that the Member for Wakehurst, Brad Hazmat, made no pronouncements at any time in the lead up to the budget. Brookvale Oval sits within that electorate. Neither did Liberal members in the neighbouring seats.Trawled all budget papers and Zip Zilch.
There was also shifty budget speak around Panfers stadium without $$ amounts mentioned.
I am only guessing PvL is up to something in terms of contributing.
More likely holding it back for pork barrelling closer to March 2023
