    Regardless of who gets it I hope that part of the agreement is a full seasons fixtures (same as AFL) are announced at the start of theb year.

    I guess it's a professional interest I have in this BUT it's the bain of life at present...but don't start me on that!!

    Gallop will probably sell it to the lowest bidder.

    Mark it isn't just you, I have yet to meet a footy fan who likes not knowing the game details until 5 weeks before.

    Especially now that I am a regional supporter i know how frustrating it is trying to plan a trip to watch the footy

    it never fully meets the 5 weeks before anyway. Round 6 was announced last week, less than 5 weeks before and the end of last year some games were less than 4 weeks

    so if fox have to pay more it will mean we as public will get slugged more
    so the comment from the Nine source that Nine won't -ose the rights means they are going to pay overs

    if they pay overs they will want an increased say in what goes on, do we really want Nien with MORE power in the game??

    I'd sooner see SBS or some community station get it over channel 9 !

    As long as 10 doesn't put in a bid for that knob Andrew Voss they'll be credible..

    Gallop has been practising his 'pick up the soap bar in the Long Bay showers' routine in preparation for the negotiations. I expect to be disappointed.
