    I went to Kardinia Park yesterday for the Big Bash match and I can say a few things about the experience;

    * The wicket was rubbish, but apparently it was alright for the women's game
    * The general admission seating area was a bit overcrowded
    * Who thought putting bins right near the Ablett terrace entry/exit portal was a good idea? Congestion around there was bad

    It seemed to me the general appearance of how things were ran was that the staff and the stadium only know how to run Cats games in an efficient manner for a stadium, even since a State Government appointed trust took over

    I can believe that. Did you find the stadium itself looked alright or was it a little mismatched with the different stands?

    Yeah the Hickey stand looks out of place, but then again can't do much with Moorabool Street right behind the stand. I went to Kardinia for Geelong vs Sydney last year and the place looked like it was ran better than Wednesday night, especially the SW pocket video screen which partially failed midway through the first session

    Was in the premiership stand for the big bash and I found it to be run exactly like every other cats game there which was perfectly fine. The only issue I had on the night was the Cats Shop was closed, when the cool breeze whipped through in the evening there were brand new cats hoodies taunting me though the window of the shop as I slowly froze as the night went on.

    I'm afraid you're wrong. That title goes to the "Wankdorf" Stadium in Switzerland
