    What's the "various degree of special" about blocks 301-310?
    What's standard about the level 1 seats in rows 16-23 blocks 117-119?
    As for back row of level 5 being a great view. I'd be a tad more realistic & claim the back rows of the blocks between the 50 arcs are good views considering the preconceived notions people will have about them. The further you go towards the big screens, logically not as good. Not bad, ok, acceptable even, but great nah I don't think so.
    Granted there are many great things about the stadium but lets tell it like it really is & that is that amongst the greatness there are some terrible deficiencies of design from a viewing obstruction POV.

    I hear the "no one from any level will have a bad seat" & the claims of others that "there is not a bad seat in the house".
    I dispute those claims & offer up this photographic evidence to back my counter claim.
    The actual seats themselves might be not bad, spacious, comfortable even but it's the view of the spectacle that we are there for, that is what matters or should matter most. There are plenty of seats with sub par views.

    Call me a purple phat arsed schadenfreude loving bastard if you like, but my hope is that it's only those that who claim there is not a bad seat in the house that get seated in these (what I & I'm sure many others would regard to be very poorly designed seats from a viewing perspective) seats.

    I know the skyview room has views of the field but what about the riverview room? If it's like the Billy Walker room but has a view of the field I reckon it's worth an extra $100 for the whole season imo, that's less than $10 a game

    The Riverview room doesn’t have views of the field. Like the Billy Walker room but with views of the river and city.

    Sorry Clem didn't sit in one. But as you know they've knocked $'s off so that should be a clue.

    Sorry Granny Val I missed this post.
    I didn't get to 113, what I can offer is unlike Subi the front row of the ground level blocks are 1.2m above the field of play (1.2m from the grass to the bottom of the perimeter fence) & no camber to worry about. The portal is very accurate so use that view as your best guide. There are plenty of toilets and bars scattered around but no Billy Walker Room type bar near you that I'm aware of. If there was you & all the other "regular members" in that area of the stadium would be less inclined to part with $100 to join the Supporters Club.

    Ive always assumed you were a campaigner, thanks for confirming.

    I went to the ground via my work (A board member also is on the stadium board) and have zero affliation with the club or ground - merely telling it as I see it.

    Thanks for the quick reminder of why I rarely post anymore. Dickhead.

    Im sure if we go looking there are plenty of shit seats. Lets go back to Subi this instant.

    I'm merely telling it as I saw it - As no doubt you are. I hope you get the seats you deserve - I did.

    There's no point engaging with toxic personalities on the internet. Over the years you realise some people are just toxic, they aren't having a laugh they are just a bit off. I just take comfort in the fact they spend more time interacting online than in real life.

    Thanks for the photo. I'm very excited about the new stadium :thumbsu:

    If you're going to post shit like "there are no bad seats", when there clearly are, and then lose your shit when you get called on it, you may as well do us all a favour and go back to rarely posting.

    Yes, how stupid of me for using generalisations on an internet forum. My point is and was, that I left my tour amazed at the venue, and for all the seats I specifically saw, none were bad.

    Are there some? No doubt.

    And with luck, you'll be sitting in them.

    Oh, I'm having a laugh alright, at the mental image of somebody I'm assuming is an adult, chucking a hissy fit over a series of 0s and 1s.

    Seems the escalators are working well in here. How about the ones in the stadium?

    Thanks Sally. That tells me heaps. Do you think there will be a limit to the numbers for the members room? We may decide to join later in the year. Thank you so much for your time! It is really appreciated. Cheers.

    Eski3 I'd like to clarify something to help you fully understand before you & others decide to part with $100, when you say the skyview room has views of the field, that I believe is incorrect.
    Allow me to scratch the surface for you.
    What the Dockers are calling the Sky View comprises a number of separate areas think Deck/Area/Room/Terrace.
    There is the exclusive glassed off deck with tables & chairs which has city & river views. There are also large free access areas either side of this exclusive glassed off area which have the exact same views, though there are no tables and chairs in the free areas at present.
    Moving from exclusive glassed off deck towards the field of play is the enclosed room that contains the bar and food serving areas for the deck with city/river views. There is no view of the field of play from this room.
    Leaving this room out the glass doors you will cross the concourse (where all stadium patrons have free access to transit through - unless barriers are installed prior to the season commencing) and encounter another glass barrier enclosed bar area under the western big screen (What Meth Coke are calling the Talon Bar) the Dockers regard this bar as part of the Sky View Deck/Area/Room/Terrace ( the eagles do not) and as such you will be able to see* a bit field of play (perhaps the eastern 3rd) from parts, though not all areas, of this bar area.
    The 360 degree area around/outside this glassed off bar area under the big screen also forms part of the wider terrace & is presently a 100% free access area to all stadium patrons.

    *If anyone is watching the game from or transiting through this currently free access area between the the glassed off bar area under the big screen and the back of blocks 530/531 the field of play will be further obscured.
    The attached pic is from 0:11 of the Dockers link. I've stood there & know this vision to be quite accurate, albeit there was no-one sitting in the seats.

    The Billy Walker Room was available at half time. I'm not 100% confident the River View Room will be. And the membership team can't confirm this yet as they don't know these finer details at this stage.
    Listen carefully to the audio in the Docker Sky View Terrace link and it clearly states the Sky View Deck will be available pre, post & during & the game whereas there is no mention of access "during" the game for the River View Room.
    If this is important to you it may be worth confirming the finer details before you decide to part with the $100 for the Supporters Club membership add on.

    Meth Cokes videos help demonstrate these geographically separate areas.

    You can call someone out without being a total campaigner about it. Maybe that could be your favour to us? You don't like the new stadium (or new things in general) we get it, needlessly picking fights just because you want to vent helps no one.

    We have previously attended three club luncheons per season in the Billy Walker Room. From what I can make out we will now have to pay an extra $100 per person to enjoy the experience. Am I correct?

    From the videos I’ve watched and info I’ve read from both clubs:
    West Coast are offering the two rooms separately as corporate hospitality packages with seats in the nosebleeders. They also come with canapés and a drinks package, but costs thousands of dollars.

    The Freo Supporters Club add on includes both access to Skyview lounge and Riverview lounge.

    Skyview lounge = Talon Bar for West Coast - watch games from under the scoreboard and drink. I am confused by you saying that there are two areas on this level - an enclosed room and the bar with views, with public access in between.
    Riverview lounge for Fremantle = Sky View Deck for West Coast I think. The Riverview lounge is on level 3 (below the Skyview Lounge). Drink and eat before and after the game.

    How is calling somebody a shill being a total campaigner? It was only a tiny little ribbing and the sensitive flower exploded. Avoiding public forums is good advice. That or hardening the **** up.
