[quote=footyman]Unfortunately most other grounds are also home to cricket clubs Caseyscorp, that restricts the availability of them for practice matches in February.

I can assure you most clubs would love an option closer to town, but there aren't any so they have to head to a little Country town called Cranbourne.[/quote]

Another reason why you should recognise the benefits of Casey Fields for footy!

[quote=footyman]I still believe the City of Casey pay the AFL a fee of some sort to host a practice match and the U18s...its well known the AFL want to start tendering out more 'events' to the highest bidder.[/quote]

You'll find that's not the case, if you pursue it officially.

I think you'll find they want to play there (and it may only be for the reason you identified in the para above - most other grounds have cricket wickets and so are unavailable).

Good to see you've changed you're status!!!

Doesnt explain why the AFL want to play National U18 games there in July when the venue hasnt got the facilities that a Skilled Stadium or Visy Park has got. Then again, the AFL gave Casey Fields three crappy games anyway so its hardly a big deal.

I dont know anybody who wants to play at Casey Fields, but maybe I'm not speaking to the right people.

Well I guess you'll just have to accept that the people who decide where to play U18 matches and NAB Challenge games take differemt factors into account than you do.

Visy Park facilities?? Have you been there in the last few years?

[quote=footyman]I dont know anybody who wants to play at Casey Fields, but maybe I'm not speaking to the right people.[/quote]

Not only are you on the wrong wavelength about factors affecting decisions regarding where to play matches, but (as you concede) you are obviously not speaking to the right people as well. It seems there is a whole world of footy out there for you to get up to speed with.

Astonishing....

I'm expecting Real Madrid and Manchester United to use Casey Fields as a training venue in the future...obviously their current venues wouldn't be a patch on what Cranbourne has to offer!!

I cannot believe the over the top gushing praise that Casey Scorp says about Casey Fields....

Casey scorp.......Ease up a bit will you...it's quite a good facility...but your constant rants about how good Casey Fields is reeks of a publicity firm to build up the complex..what's next???... a Grand prix around the streets of Cranbourne??

Yes...I realise you think that St Kilda have made a monumental mistake by somehow bypassing Casey Fields as a training venue...but just take a quiet step back and realise that a fair proportion of the football following fraternity don't see Cranbourne as the Holy Grail as you do,,,

St Kilda will not lose one iota of ground of credibility by going to Seaford

We're talking TRAINNG FACILITIES here

The way you're talking is that Casey Fields will one day host an AFL Grand Final...

Let's try and keep things in perspective

Sandy. The most successful club in the past 30 years

An all weather athletics complex ($6.5 mill), followed by a regional soccer complex ($10-12 mill) seeing as you asked.

The bloke in charge of the A-league doesn't like you so I wouldn't waste your money!!! While he's there I can't see you getting a team!!!

zebraman, I couldnt have said it better myself. Post of the year.

caseyscorp, half the reason I bag the Casey Fields is cos you flog your facility on a daily basis. We don't need your Estate Agent sales pitch every day boss.

The bloke in charge of the A-league doesn't have anything to do with it - it's not an A-league venue that's being talked about. An A-league venue (eg the rectangular stadium) would cost around $250 million.

Just providing balance to the unreasonably negative comments that have flowed for a few years. The green-eyed monster is alive and well.

I'm just balancing them the other way. You're protecting your investment by constantly selling the venue on every footy forum known to man, which is good, but the fact remains that there was little more than two men and a dog in your new shelter on the outer wing today. Looked a treat on the telly! :p What happened to "rent a crowd" - didnt they turn up???

Why didnt you consider any wind protection in the design of those shelters? They're very open. A bit like everything at Casey Fields - sort of "half" way there but nothing looks really complete. All looks a bit on the cheap really.

Oh let me guess - Rome wasnt built in a day???
