    Still getting close to Ballarat though. Quite possible we could fit games against say the GC in with that capacity.

    The AFL will never allow games at grounds like WO with such a substantial breeze. Think of the ~ o p t i c s ~.

    Cairns & Ballarat are no different
    If you kicked five goals and Tom Boyd kicked five goals, Tom Boyd kicked more goals than you.

    Isn't there some weird arrangement where AFL games can't be held at stadiums with wooden grandstands?

    Not sure what it is exactly. Someone on here might know more.

    The wooden seats = old school When I’m at the Whitten Oval I always love to sit in the Whitten Stand and I think back this was buzzing in the 80s before I was born when we had great wins.

    Nowadays I think we are just comfortable in the seats at the G and Marvel.

    The new scoreboard is big enough to affect the wind at Geelong Rd end.

    From memory FA and the Thatcher government in England held an enquiry after the Bradford fire in 1985 and banned stadia (the correct plural form of stadium) with wooden seating from hosting matches in England. The AFL did make out that they had surveyed the grounds in the early '80s and held concerns about how a few could have been problematic if there was a fire but that had more to do with ground rationalization and getting rid of grounds like Whitten oval than any deeply held concerns about safety.
