If its on the west side no problem, that's where Geoff is.
I am closer to the southern goals, and no problem with sun.
If it's on the east side, then yes could be a problem.

Hi guys and gals,looking at swapping seats for the footy this year from 124 to be a bit more elevated in either 328 or 542/43/44 can anyone seated in these or nearby advise on the pros and cons of their positions.cheers in advance
I'm in 332, effectively behind the southern behind post at the city end. Having had to move around during this last season, I came to fully appreciate how good those seats are. Good elevation, behind the goals and, being at the city end, complete protection from rain. Although a little more toward the 50m line than mine, 328 would be the pick of those you mention, in my opinion.

Hat tip to FreoPope (are they on BigFooty?) for this perfect response on Twitter.

He used to be here a lot, but I think he got sick of some of the infighting. He was very good value - great insight, great footy knowledge, cricket-lover, all round good guy. Think he went simply by ThePope in his BF days. AFAIK, exclusively Twitter for his Freo (and cricket) posting. Biting humour also. Worth a follow.

Pretty sure in 1999 a can of coke was going for 80c.
Yeah the Corpo prices were pretty damn cheap those days. I just like the

The appointment of Damian Drum will see a new focus to the positioning of our team. - Yeap to the bottom of the ladder with a two win season.

I'm in 543. It's centre wing. Level 5 is fine as long as you're in row 2 to 5 (a narrow range I admit. I'm in 3 myself). Row 1 the glass and posts block your view and past row 5 or 6 you're getting higher and further away.


I'm in 523, cheap seats. I like it, coz you can see everything.
Is 543 over near the wing, if so you'll be near Geoff Hutchinson ??? ABC
It can be. I was on level 5 for the Derby and the sun going down made for tough viewing for a while.

Personally, I wouldn't go with level 5 if I could help it. You get a great view from above so you can watch the tactical battle, but IMO, you are too far removed from the action and it is extremely difficult to see what is happening on the other side of the ground.

Yep, still around, but mainly just in the footy history forum on BF now. Us amateur historians can deal with just the facts, Jack, just the facts. Not here for any drama any more. I keep most of my snark & "biting humour" (thanks IP!) for Twitter.

Hehe you’re welcome. 😂 Facts is facts is good. No sniping, just the facts.
(BTW I follow you on Twitter, but you largely ignore me when I comment on your stuff... even when I say nice things about you here. You dirty rat! 😆😉)

Damn they are really good at that cap dodge, we really need to get better at this if we want to succeed
Have you ever wondered why Nic Nat & Kennedy are staring at you when you drive through the Hungry Jacks drive thru & in the store? That’s called ‘outside of the salary cap’ & have you seen the latest Retravision commercial on TV which has an outdoor TV showing a number of the Eagles players for an awkwardly long time? That’s how you inflate your salary cap.

Did you notice how Nic signed a contract extension and suddenly the HJs ad with Kennedy and Darling had a two second slice at the end of him?

This is how you play the game.

Yeah I know how they do it, Few of their players have random landscaping companies etc too

We just need to do it too, it was a noble attempt with the cheap houses but we need something more attractive
