Is it just me or are the residents near Brrokvale Oval being a little selfish when it comes to sporting fixtures at Brookvale Oval. The oval has been home to the Sea Eagles since 1947 and thus has staged top tier rugby league fixtures for over 60 years. Why then, do residents feel they have the right to complain about the level of noise etc. that is made when a game is hosted. My argument is, if you dont want to deal with all the after effects of a manly game, dont buy a house next to the ground! I know this may seem like a simple notion, but it is similar to that of the people who bought/constructed apartments next to Luna Park and then complained about the Big Dipper. It may also be the case that the price of the houses may be lower than otherwise due to their location to the ground, thus by paying a cheaper price you forgoe any rights in regards to the ramifications of disturbance caused by a rugby league game. As one member of the residents commitee put it, ``If it is a Friday or Saturday, you can go somewhere else and escape". What a ridiculous comment. Those that live close enough to the ground cannot claim to be stupid enough to realise when they bought/built there house that they did not notice the 20,000 capacity rugby league ground nearby and therefore did not take into account the possible consequences of this. Is it just me or does anyone else think the residents are way out of line with their near impossible demands?
