I don't see the problem. It's no different to what the new Spurs stadium will have with their NFL games. I'm sure if we had our 'own' new ground the owners would still look to be doing the same sort of thing. I also like rugby and look forward to seeing a top game there. I believe we have to accept we have what we have and a successful stadium is in everyone's best interest rather than an unsuccessful one with all the potential negative connotations that would continue to ensue. I'm not saying we have to like it, but neither am I King Canute.

Spurs new stadium is purpose built with a retractable pitch.So they could literally host a NFL game on same day.Which I think they intend to do.Plus spurs are getting around £50m for their non spurs events we won't get a penny.

Brady was adamant at the SAB meetings that West Ham would have the right to veto any events in the stadium during the football season.
So either she lied or the club are happy for the rugby to go ahead.

The new stadium has been designed from the outset for multi-use, including a structurally engineered fully retractable pitch – the first for any stadium in the UK – to ensure that the football-playing surface is always in peak condition.

Underneath the grass field will be a synthetic grass surface that would be used for NFL games and other events. This innovative solution also allows greater flexibility in the scheduling of games, reducing the set up time required to prepare the ground for other events.

Did read an article about e-sports events .Dont know to much about them tbh but apparantly they are huge events said they would expect £2-3m from each event.Think they can pretty much host whatever they want concerts boxing etc .But they can do e-sports themselves so keep all the money.Plus the Already in place NFL deal.

I will attend this likely - Although seeing the Quins at the Stoop is always an enjoyable experience, love that ground (and the bar underneath the main stand :wink: )

So not only are we having to accommodate Athletics this season by having 3 of our home games rearranged, we also have to put up with Rugby carving up the pitch at the business end of the same season as well. If the Board had a veto, they are bang in the wrong to allow this. They need serious questioning over this and why they allowed it, if they were allowed too at all..

As a Quins season ticket holder, I've avoided going to the sarries "home" game at Wembley on account of it being full of day trippers, so will probably give this one a miss too. It's the same too, when we have our Big Game at Big Stoop, just trollied adults who have more interest in getting a beer every 5 minutes than actually watching a game of rugby. Roll on September at the Stoop.

Old Wembley would often have the Rugby League Challenge Cup Final and then the FA Cup Final on successive weekends.

Feeling Spurs are playing day after challenge cup final this season.Sure I saw on twitter yesterday they moved a game to Sunday from the Saturday .Modern pitches are much tougher a week will be fine.

What do you actually get for the 'deal of the century'?
£2.5 million doesnt appear to get you much, I doubt very much if there is any veto in that fee.
You pays your money and you takes your chances, we paid peanuts.
