Actually at Addington, Christchurch has a really good bunch of stadiums in close proximity. Addington Raceway, Westpac Arena and Rugby League Park.

I don't know why, because it's a tip, but i LOVE Rugby League Park. Probably because it reminds me of an English stadium.

I'm not sure, i know there is the TSB Arena right on the Waterfront. There probably is, actually.

Oh, TSB Arena, that's probably what I'm thinking of.

As soon as i walked in i felt as though i was at a lower-league english soccer ground.

It was brilliant, it fits in perfectly with Christchurch.

EDIT: I posted photos of it when we were picspamming too.

Clubs which don't have this sort of ownership structure, as far as I know, are North Melbourne (owned by shareholders), Adelaide Cows (owned by SANFL) and the West Coast Eagles (who f***ing cares). Fremantle i'm not sure about.

Ugh, this game is boring.

30-6 with nobody looking like doing anything and still 14 minutes to go.

Yeah, that sounds ideal for Christchurch.

I remember photos of Carlaw Park and ... some cricket ground in Christchurch whose name I forget, but not Rugby League Park.

You just like the avatar.

But that's a fucking shame it wouldn't be financially feasible. But is a second Queensland one going to work? It's not as if the Lions are selling out every home game.

Mmm, lazy referees.

I hate how often cricket umpires go upstairs for things that obviously are NOT run-outs.

Ah yes, I remember that one now.

Certainly I see what you mean with its Englishness. But that can be said about just about everything in all of Canterbury.

Then go to Dunedin and you might as well be in Scotland.
