    Channel 9 has dumped Friday Night Football for the Royal Wedding. What a load of horse****. Who cares?
    Apparently they are playing the games on Gem so they don't get done for anti-siphoning. From what I've heard the lead game in both NSW & QLD will be Broncos v Bulldogs followed by Rabbitohs v Sharks on replay.
    What can I say, I'm still pissed. I understand why the network is doing it, cause its a big event that will rate, but honestly the royal family could not bore me anymore and I have 0 interest in the wedding

    The wedding will still get a much higher rating count than football ever will.
    Sad, but true.

    Not when it'll be on 5 or 6 channels.

    Nein take absolutely no responsibility for the sports they buy the rights to. All they're interested in doing is preventing anybody else having the rights so they can pick & choose what they show & when.

    As long as its on Gem I don't care what they show on their main channel, even if it is soft British porn.  Hopefully there's fewer adverts.

    Problem is: I don't have access to Gem and neither do a lot of people I know so that's BS. Would have been better on GO

    At least on GEM hopefully it will be in HD.

    And for you people who don't have access to GEM, if Regional I understand, but if you're in the City then just spend $40 to get a set top box.

    I suspect anyone on here spends alot more than that throughout the year to support Manly.

    All the major rural centres have digital TV now.Same as metro-just a digital or HD TV or set top box required.

    Stupid decision, shows why Channel 9 don't deserve the rights, but if it's going to be on Gem, then there's nothing to complain about.

    The NRL should have scheduled the Titans match that night . . . so we could see Prince Scott.
