Think of a number and double it. Double it again. You're still way off.

"San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Marquise Goodwin scores an 83-yard touchdown just hours after he and his wife lost their unborn son, helping his side to their first win of the 2017 NFL season."
Seems everybody thinks he's brill. But your prematurely born son dies and you go to play murderball. No. Never, ever. :banghead: :banghead: :banghead:

For those of you with too much time on your hands or who work at Stormont, same thing really. Looks like we rebuilt Ravenspan too soon. Here's where sports stadiums (or is it stadia?) are heading.

That would cost the entire NI block grant and we would still feck it up and run over budget

Casement will be another waste of money with a the desire to simply have the biggest stadia in Belfast... Kingspan is the envy of Europe I am told it was the jolt that Racing needed to built that dump they now have.. for the record I never considered Spanner’s anymore than a decent stadia but one that lacks flexibility possibly in part due to the local residents needs.. it ticks boxes but not enough.

I don't think anyone would doubt that the atmosphere at Kingspan isn't what it was at Ravenhill, ten years ago. Is this the result of a new stadium, a weaker team or a different profile of fans? Maybe a combination of all three or something else entirely. One thing's for sure, no stadium improvements will significantly affect our on-field performances.

It's an entertainment business. Supporters are not being entertained or enthused by what they see on the pitch so the atmosphere is pants and attendances falling.
