    Don't **** it this time, like you did on the last one Gallop. Don't roll over for your News cronies like you have in the past...

    To state the obvious, this is soooo soooo crucial. Our game is such a massive TV product, and it deserves big money..

    Knowing Gallop instead of taking a baseball bat to the fight he will take a wet lettuce leaf.

    DSM is right he is not the man for this

    The ABC is not in the position that the commercial networks are in to bid for the rights.

    I wont be suprised if we see League coverage split up over several channels this time around.

    I also wouldn't be surprised to see channel 7 have a massive play to take the lot from 9.

    Or even ten/one. They could really use some live sport over there.

    it use to work well with ABC getting slice of the pie too.

    However I don't know how it would work with the draw, we may end up with the 5 weeks in advanced crap we have now

    OK Gallop.  Do your phony baloney job and negotiate hard this time.  Rather than bend over backwards to accommodate News.

    Get professional negotiators in to do this deal.  Stay out of it you will only screw it up IMO.

    Suggest the following should be non-negotiable:

    120% above the AFL deal as it rates at least 20% better than where they kick behinds.  If AFL negotiates a better deal the NRL would then get a rise in accordance with the AFL + 120%.

    Length of deal should be a 3 x 3.  Option only to be applied if the NRL agrees and wouldn't require other parties to agree.

    Payments should at least factor in inflation +3% per annum.

    A payment structure linked to ratings.  If ratings are higher the payment also goes higher.  If ratings go lower payments should have a floor where they will go no lower than the yearly set amount.

    All News sports reports should lead with NRL stories first rather than AFL stories as they do at the moment.

    A dedicated rugby league channel running 24 x 7 on the FOX network rather than having to share with union and ARL.  Or if 7, 9 or 10 get the majority a HD channel dedicated entirely to rugby league.  This would include all Toyota cup games, QLD cup, Sydney cup and country matches as well.

    All Toyota cup games should be televised or replayed rather than just two.

    If 7, 9 or 10 get the deal or part of it.  These stations in all areas (including Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth) should be made to telecast NRL etc at the same time i.e. Friday nights and Sunday afternoons.

    I would like to see the draw set in stone at the start of the season with all sides featuring in a mixture of Friday night and Sunday TV games as well as Monday night. Set the draw up to have traditional teams and grudge matches played in a staggered way so that games are attractive no matter where teams asit on the table.

    Not knowing when the games are on until 5 weeks before is just ridiculous.

    I heard Gus saying it's fine and so on, which it probably is if you live in a city, however trying to get a cheap flight 5 weeks out in any regional place is next to impossible

    I hope that one day the NRL could simply create its own channel, imagine 24/7 coverage of the NRL with all games being shown live.
