    5 of the top 7 teams getting free air games aren't in the 8.

    The other two teams are coming in at 7th and 8th!

    It makes sense the Broncos get a pile of friday night games. 1 they are the defending premiers and 2 there are 2 friday night games with 1 live into Qld which is the 2nd biggest market in the country, the NRL and Nine have to cater to them.

    It be annoying for the Qld supporters who dont support Brisbane but its makes sense.

    its rather skewed if you ask me

    and it doesnt help out teams like us and the bunnies who have struggled and got the old when your not doing well you wont get much air time excuse in past years - great for sponsors now we are doing well and still getting **** all air time.

    I can understand the storm and warriors not getting that many being that the games arnt televised there anyway as such but the rest of the teams should be close to even, not 2 - 3 times as many

    Even though the storm are a Melbourne side and aren't as likely to get ratings, the Manly v Storm game in a few rounds time will most likely be a top of the table clash, and quite a way on the top by then I would think.

    However the game has been chosen as a Saturday Night game at 5.30???

    The game chosen to take its place on a Friday night which I would deem appropriate for a game of that calibure????

    Canberra vs St George....
