A couple of Stadiums at the footy.

Recommended Posts

I'll begin with the MCG:

Level 2 looking over the ground towards the city end. At the other side of the ground Hawthorn are warming up whilst St Kilda emerge from change rooms to begin thier pre-game warmup.

Video screen at the City end. Theres one at the punt road end. The punt road end one was more famous for catching fire before the big rebuild. The clock

After the MCG was rebuilt the scoreboards were re located to the front of Level 2.

 

And now we move onto Ethiad Stadium on the other side of the city:

From Level 1 row B. For today's game the roof was shut. Very rarely does the roof get opened for a game of football. For a comparsion here it is with the roof open:

The video screen and scoreboard. Unlike the MCG the screens here are a touch on the rubbish side.

The time next to the Q2 is the how long the quarter time. Unlike on TV where you get the 20 minutes of "Playing time" that counts down at games you get the time that goes up. When the clock goes beyond 20 minutes it's said that we are in "Time on"
