I remember all the corruption associated with Concord, prison sentence as I remember. Being to the east of the ground will give you a migraine looking into the setting sun, but yes, there should be no home ground advantage. Some other place.
But when you say "uni having a golden run as usual", do you imply some unfair advantage or bias? I know people like to sing "anyone but Uni". but as I have said repeatedly, we payed our dues, almost going under in 2nd grade, and then worked out how to get smart and achieve. Rather than tearing us down for that, why not keep aspiring the same as we did?
If that is what you you meant.
None implied by me, I respect what Uni have achieved. But it would be nice to see a team other than Eastwood or Uni win this year. Of the other 3 teams left, Souths have only one once (ie as St George in 1957 before the merger with Port Hacking), The Rats got their name on the Shute Shield in 2005 for the only time when it was played for in the first half of the season and the second half (the main comp) was the Toohey's Cup or something, and Norths last won in 1975. We have to go back to 1998 (Gordon) to find a team other than Uni, Eastwood or the Wicks (apart from the previously mentioned Rats win) so I'd like to see another name on the trophy.
