    Has been decided as the Friday night game.

    Good luck getting all manly fans to travel to Gosford along the F3 on a Friday evening.

    Terrible selection - should of been 3pm game on Sunday

    Did Channel 9 make the decision or did the NRL? Must say if we were playing like previous years, we wouldn't be a TV game. Guess we are victims of our own success.

    WTF, I can't get to this one and it's meant to be a home game. Those drongos on the central coast don't want to see league, so why go up there? On a Friday night there'd be more spectators at Brookie than Bluetongue. Anyway why support Singleton?

    Another way for the club to screw over a season ticket holder, because it seems most would be unable to make it

    If this was a Sunday arvo game, that place would be packed -- so many Sydney Manly supporters and then Newcastle fans would make it.

    Channel Nine crap.

    Channel 9 makes the decision. All you whingers can take an afternoon off work - problem solved.

    Channel 9 doesn't want people at the game, they want to charge advertisers higher rates to advertise to the masses.

    NRL should make the call - not a media company. Then you get what is best for the game and not for ratings!!!

    Great idea. Pull the TV dollars out of the game and turn it back into a suburban competition with the main game the Saturday afternoon affair on the ABC.

    The AFL get big bucks from the TV companies and they call the shots - rather than 9, 10 , 7 or whoever falls over themselves to get the rights to televise. Do you think that TV stations should control all - or that the game itself should set the guidelines etc?

    while i understand ratings, some commoncence should prevail, our management took the game up there to get a big crowd, now being Friday night game that pretty much cancels that out.

    looks like a game on the couch even though i have season tickets.
