              Was a great night. The big screen and all the interactive smaller screens around the ground were lit up. Looked great. The only problem most seats in gold, silver and Chookpen areas will not be able to see it because of the angle. Especially gold and silver. A bit ordinary. Joey and Aubbo both spoke about what it meant to them to be part of the roosters family. Their response was clear evidence we are a great club who treats our players and staff like family and it is greatly appreciated by the players. Also very handy for us in recruitment and retention. Because no one truly wants to leave our club once they experience what we are about. Robbo came on to a rousing reception. He first talked about the working class roots of our area. He gave a history lesson on the transformation of the area from those roots to the ritzy upmarket area we have today. He did this with speech and also used old photos on big screen. Having grown up in paddo and Bondi in 70s and 80s I could definitely relate. He talked about the history of the club and past players and coaches and the contributions of them and of course of uncle nick. His message to us the members and fans who walk around in our hats and jerseys every day putting up with Iíll informed jibes from opposing fans, his message is this. Walk with pride. We fought for this area. Our area built the city. The people of our area have had to work hard to stay there. Many like myself have had to move away from my childhood area because of the price. But our DNA is entwined I our area and donít let anyone tell u otherwise. That was Robbos message. He talked about the redistribution of boundries which cost our club valuable junior areas and basically handed them to souffs. I have tried to explain to many souffs fans that east of Anzac Pde all the way to la perouse was ours. Was a great night. I loved it. E
