[quote="zebraman"]Certainly looked good on the telly....surface looks good...had a good crowd there.... Good luck to them for having the balls to move there[/quote] Is a good facility, but still has a fair of cosmetic and non-playing work to be done. Will be a fantastic facility eventually, and will improve week by week as the (minor) outstanding bits get finished. However, I don't think the move had anything to do with balls. I think thats a bit of an overstatement.

[quote="ozybeer"]Yep it looked fantastic give it a few years when trees & that grow should look great.[/quote] It looked ok on tv for a new ground but where was the crowd if the as claimed Casey has 250,000 residents and the game had been pumped up locally? Like all the countryfied grounds aka Nt Ballarat it will lack soul and atmosphere for a bloody long time.

Once the trees grow, it will make a huge differance. Werribee is not much differant, other than its age, and that is the differance. As I said, it will be very very good before too long. (Maybe some of these comments might shut the whining Scorpions supporters up for a while)

would have looked bare on t.v as the camera was set up on the same side as the grand stand and nearly all the crowd so that the scoreboard was in view of camera, the crowd spread down that near side to the goals at each end, a couple of tents set up also where a number of supporters were, i personally would have sacrificed the scoreboard on t.v to get the good side, grandstand etc!!, there was a smaller scoreboard on the boundary that could have been flashed to.

Did anyone see the double page spread of colour photos of the ground in the record this week? The plan of the complex looks cool, it's going to be massive when it's finally finished. Anyone got an idea when it will be finished?

It takes a bit to get set up, and the forecast didn't indicate any likely sun, but if it magically came out then their angles would have been sun-affected if they had set up to capture the crowd and stadium view.

I'm sure there'll be bits and pieces done over the next few years; maybe some extra seating benches around the perimeter etc. But major works, like another toilet block on the outer side of the ground would be a long time away. More undercover seating would depend on demand, and there didn't seem to be anyone wanting for a seat that couldn't get one. As in years gone by, most VFL supporters stood. There may be some extra carparking works outside the ground - crushed rock on the large carpark area on the southern side of the access road would be necessary for if it's wet, and I'll bet it will be wet at some time this season before any work is done. But you can walk more than 100 metres and park a bit further away (as you have to do at most venues)rather than get bogged. I know what I'd do. Perhaps anyone who went on Saturday can suggest improvements they believe are necessary, and they can be forwarded to whoever should be told.

Some crushed rock inside the gate instead or the (temporary) red clay would be a preety good idea before Nana slides down the hill and breaks her hip.
