  • Taking home games away

    Our "home games" against the Storm and Sharks directly after Origin II in rnds 16 & 17 will be in Adelaide and on the Central Coast.

    Two heavyweight clash and we've chosen to give up our home ground advantage. Do we want to win Premierships or earn a few extra dollars?

    I know we have a relationship with the CC but couldn't we have taken our home clash vs the Knights there?

    Losing our home ground advantage in these clashes could be the difference between winning and losing; 4th vs 5th.

    Might be narrow minded but I'm not a fan. That's a lot of uneccessary travelling.

    I never see Brisbane taking their home games on the road. That extra home game they got last week really pissed me off.

      Ive never been a fan of it and it is even more disappointing thst they have chosen last years grand final teams as games to take away from Allianz
      Until the philosophy which holds on race superior and another inferior Is finally and permanently discredited and abandoned then everywhere is war That until there is no longer 1st class or 2nd class citizens of any nation. Until the colour of a mans skin is of no more significance than the colour of his eyes. Then its a war. That until the basic human rights are equally guaranteed to all without regard to race Then its a war

        If you are going to take games away, then surely games where you'd struggle to get a crowd, especially against out of town teams.
        Fancy taking away a game against another Sydney team ...especially the reigning premiers !

          Yet we still pay full price for our season ticket that gets us 10 games at SFS not 12.

          I spoke with Brian Canaan about this when he was CEO. He stated that he was aware the fans didn't like it but it was purely a financial decision and to secure the future of the club.

          Either way I really hate it. Once a year is bad enough but 2 home games and 2 in a row is really annoying.

            Hate it. It's just another business decision and a sell out.

              They are on prime time free-to-air every weekend and are the only club in a major City.

              There's no comparison.

              I have no problem with them moving games.

                Brisbane are a one town team. Not really a fair comparrison.

                  You have to go back to 1999 to find the last time we drew more than 15k to a Sharks game at Home and we have only drawn more than 15k to one regular season Home game against Melbourne in our history, 2013 for th record.

                  These are not high drawing games for us.

                    moving a game to brisbane was a disgrace I can't see how the nrl could justify allowing a team to play in brisbane as their home game against the broncos also how often do the Warriors take games around new zealand it doesn't seem like it happens very often unfortunately I don't believe the sfs carries much home ground advantage to us the stadium is a big game stadium for finals matches so players don't fear it and unlike the broncos we don't get 35k to our games to make it intimidating I don't believe the olympic stadium is much of an advantage either for those teams

                      ​They don't move games though, that's the issue.

                          Bingo. Where's the value for the members in having to travel interstate to attend a 'home' game?

                            Why would they? They don't need the money, their club and a strong home crowd every match means they are probably the only club that makes money.

                            I went to the parra game last week, and the atmosphere was rubbish. We get 10000 to a all Sydney clash, if everybody who complained about us moving games away from the SFS went to them, we probably wouldn't have to move them.

                              They don't have to. That's the issue.
