Pitch Dimensions[edit]

The pitch dimensions on the infobox suggest it was 110m x 72m, whilst the Belle Vue page states "The ground was renowned for having one of the top five biggest pitches in the UK, at 110 yards long, and 72 yards wide." To my knowledge, Millmoor was a small and narrow pitch, so one of the grounds' dimensions is probably wrong. Richard n 13:04, 24 June 2011 (UTC)

Both seem to be wrong. Rotherham's website places the pitch at 115 x 70 yards - presumably whoever wrote the infobox text got mixed up with the units. But the unsourced claim in the Belle Vue article should be removed, since 110 x 72 is no larger than many current grounds (e.g. Galpharm Stadium, Reebok Stadium and even the ancient Underhill Stadium).
