    Exclusive First Look at New Parramatta Stadium Screen


    mack
    • WestSydneyFootball.com agents infiltrated Parramatta Stadium to take the first pictures of the new big screen.

       

      The new screen faces the RBB bay, giving the supporters group the ability to watch replays without having to turn around to watch a screen obscured by advertising.

       

      Our Agent, @abbadabba, spoke with the construction workers of the new screen and was told it should be up and running by the the first match of the season vs Central Coast. I would also like to thank @Taurus for his role in gathering the information.

    Had to re-edit the pictures. For some reason the first lot I put it stopped working :/ Anyway, should be good now.

    I'm very impressed. Well positioned and large. I'm so glad the screen seems to be edge to edge, I was afraid it would be bordered by advertising or otherwise wasted space.

     

    Only possible concern is the elevation from pitch level, it looks as though it could be quite distracting or in a bad position for the keeper facing it. The last picture shows what I'm referring to, where the bottom of the screen isn't much higher than the top of where the goals would be.

    There's one more pic I sent Mack which is from the RBB bay but zoomed in. I think it will allay your fears as from that pic it looks like the top of the goals will only look as high as the bay then there are the ad boards then some clear space before the black screen starts. Mack if you got it and can load i would be much obliged.

    maybe we can use this to our advantage. when the ball goes in the air to the opposing keeper, have a video of lots of balls going across the screen.

    this is great news, just wondering who funded this? and does this permenantly replace the former scoreboard which i think was down the southern end

    It may be of use to the Eels fans too. I'm stoked our club is still listening. Thanks, Lyall - or whomever!

    Maybe the fact that we have committed to have all 13 home games there made them build this new screen.

     

    It's amazing that by sticking to his guns and having all games at Parra, Gorman has caused the stadium to be improved.

     

    Hopefully, if we pack out Parra every week, an expansion to 30,000 will be on the cards.

    But we also have to justify the expansion. Having a 10k average wont justify it. Having quite a few sellouts a season and other games nearing a sellout will justify the expansion

    Yes, this angle shows it much better, there's quite a lot of clearance. Excellent reconnaissance work!

     

    Absolutely can't wait to see this in action...

    • Most such pardons would be less controversial than the one handed to Flynn. However, among those campaigning for a pardon is Joseph Maldonado-Passage. Better known as Joe Exotic, the zookeeper subject of hit Netflix documentary Tiger King, he received a 22-year sentence for trying to hire a hitman to kill a rival. https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2020/nov/26/trump-pardon-michael-flynn-rick-gates Free the Tiger King!!
    • Wow they are at the point of arrogance that they can just tell people they use public money to shore up votes and get away with it https://www.smh.com.au/politics/nsw/berejiklian-backs-away-from-icac-funding-boost-but-not-pork-barrelling-20201126-p56ic4.html  
    • She joined Blacktown Spartans during the NPL season and now the reports are that WSW and Victory have made offers as well as overseas clubs but that she would prefer to stay in Australia. I believe she would be back to Sydney now after participating in the FFA's training camp that was held in Adelaide this past week. I would suspect she'll have to make a decision pretty shortly about which club to join with the season a month away. Roberts also joined the Spartans after the season, we might have decided not to retain her again after 4 seasons with us, she only played 3 games last year. Holloway suffering an ACL injury at age 36 may have forced her into retirement and even if she didn't, signing her again would be a really risky choice for the club.
