    In response to the poor leadership and bad decisions that are always coming from NRL management I am making a pledge to only watch Manly games in 2015. No SOO, no non Manly finals only games that involve Manly. A lot of fans from a lot of clubs already do this and I think we need to send a message that enough is enough.
    I would like to see how many other fans feel the same way throught all the clubs.

    I used to be one of those who watched just about every game but this has changed in recent years. I very rarely watch games that don't involve Manly now and this is completely due to the favourable treatment given to some teams. I don't want to see the bloody Broncos every Friday night so Friday football is out for me. If Manly are playing the second match I'll watch it on a live stream.
    I may be in the minority but I'm really over SOO and see it as an unwelcome interruption to the season ( I'm sure the players feel differently). I did enjoy the International football this year though.

    I too only watch Manly matches (and the GF) during NRL season.

    SOO is just Wrestlemania in footy boots, with soccer scores.
    Boring as.

    I do watch test matches and 4 nations was a great spectacle of open, attacking and creative league.

    I understand where you coming from but that is very sad. even though the game is embarrassingly and painfully mis-managed; i love rugby league and watch most (if not all) games every round. Me not watching games won't change anything, just means I miss out seeing the game I love

    I normally watch Friday night footy, unless it's an absolute yawnfest. Good way to end the working week over a couple of beers. It usually contains at least one good game.
    I will try and watch the Sunday arvo game but won't bust a gut unless the Eagles are playing.
    Will definitely be watching the Blues continue the start of their dynasty over the cane toads.

    What are these games that involve sides that are not Manly of which you speak ?

    I had no idea these matches existed.

    Living in Brisbane has turned me off 90% of Friday night football.

    If Manly are playing I record the Foxtel version of Nein's coverage ( in HD and no advertisements ) , going out with friends for a few bevies and a cheap meal and watch it the next morning.

    You however have to turn your phone off.

    I rarely watch other games these days? The whole thing frustrates me anyway so why give myself more angst than I have to?

    I like your sentiment but to watch only matches that involve Manly and no others sounds like something my wife would suggest!

    I'll watch most of them, but I promise to only enjoy the Manly games.

    I agree with you Mark and do pretty much the same thing . Used to enjoy Friday night footy, until I moved too far past the Tweed. The Broncos adnauseum is pathetic on Fridays, and will only get worse with the return of the messiah.

    My other half commented several times this year about the fact I wasn't watching the other games. As she has endured a long and extensive obedience course in the rituals of shutting the hell up whenever the fox/nine coverage started she is now very confused and upset as to what her role is. eg... does this mean she can talk now the other games are not being watched, or should she stay silent anyway, regardless? As I said to her...it's no good calling me a male chauvinistic baastard...it's all the NRL/Nines's fault.:)

    I like to watch Manly, and whoever we are going to play the following week. That and porn. But I only watch the latter because I enjoy the background music. I find it relaxing.

    I hate watching the refs decide the outcome of a game, I hate watching 5 burgess hit ups then kick for a winger, I hate watching certain players who always get penalysed wether warranted or not and others get treated like the golden child.

    Generally only watch non-Manly games to deathride my most hated sides Bulldogs, Roosters, Souths, Storm....Once it starts looking that they are going to win or the crap about SBW, Burgess brothers etc gets too much, off it goes.
    I have been saying for years SOO should only be one game a year. Need to have it to give Queenslanders some purpose in life, but at the end of the day I only watch it to make sure Manly players aren't injured or suspended. (watmough)
