Re: Civic still preferred stadium option for Canberra Raiders

This is the issue with the site... this map view is aligned so north is at the top... west at the left. You would want your western sideline running from the top to bottom of the map. Yes, but you'll hard-pressed to find too many stadiums that are perfect North-South - you have to make concessions ...

Re: Civic still preferred stadium option for Canberra Raiders

To be fair, the zoom on Google maps isn't the most accurate thing in the world. I just tried to do it again and somehow the stadium is like 20% bigger, which would indeed require Parkes Way to be moved. It's not as though that's as big a deal as everybody is making out, though - you wouldn't even ne...

Re: Civic still preferred stadium option for Canberra Raiders

Why does the Civic site need to be East-West? Just do this: https://i.snipboard.io/ALkt7X.jpg That's Bankwest stadium at the same zoom level. Doesn't even look like Parkes Way needs to be moved. All that extra space closer to the roundabout could be the precinct, and the open-air CIT carpark on the ...

Re: Rapana eyes Japan rugby union switch

As dangerous as BJ can be, he's got a lot of mistakes and on-field discipline issues that come with him. IMO this is something we need to fix, I don't realistically know how likely it is that we can do that, if we can't then the other option is to move him on. Whatever else he did in the GF, I think...

I don't want to read too much about the loss, I won't be clicking on any related news articles.

I really wish they had seats held in reserve for clubs, ones that aren't utter crap - on the fence behind the goalposts is awful. Is a little elevation on a corner too much to ask for? Hell, reserve some gold and platinum. Die-hard club fans are getting shunted behind the posts, and the people there...

People are going to blow up about that touch judge and the hand not hitting the line - but it's not as though they were definitely going to score from that.

Well you can tell its finals football, close stuff. A little disappointing we don't have more points on the board after dominating the half, I get the feeling momentum is going to swing around.

Some horrendous last tackle options all game, but definitely quite a show at the end there - a five field goal game.

That's one of the great all-time Raiders wins... 18-0 down against Melbourne, I thought it was done at that point.

This is the first time anybody has ever clawed back a Melbourne lead of 18 points or more. It's nice to be on the positive side of the record books for once. :thumbsup

Not sure that logic holds. I feel like there's been a fair few games where all the legends have rocked up to Canberra Stadium, formed a guard of honour at the tunnel and been in the dressing rooms etc., and we end up getting walloped on the scoreboard.
