    In the words of the biggest tool of all on 9: "No, No, No, No, No!"
    Bring back the ABC live game on Saturdays!

    The TV contract should have some "use it or lose it" clauses to make the free to air channels do the right thing.  All F2A games should be shown live and where two games are concurrent their digital channel should provide viewers choice. 

    Gallop needs to understand he owns the whip hand in these negotiations - if the F2A channels won't play ball, sell it to Fox.  The remaining 50% of NSW/Qld viewers who haven;t taken up their service will miraculously find the $15 per week it requires, I'm sure of that.

    I wish they would sort out the Overseas rights. Rugby League will never become a truly global game until they make it available to free to air channels in the likes of Ireland and the UK and US. If they did this sure it would lose a few bob but it would make the world sit up and take notice. I live in Ireland and at the moment i know hundreds of guys who want to watch the NRL but either dont have any idea where to watch it. None of the old services are showing it now (Setanta 28euros/PerMonth for 2 games a week they have dropped NRL after they went broke) or (Sky Sports about 15 Euros per month but with Tulson Toilet commentating at half time Arghhh Sky sports let it go but to be honest they show far too many sports to do it justice anyway) niether of these stations have it anymore so we have to watch it on Broadband and its delayed and Ireland has the worst broadband speeds in Europe so that idea is stuffed as well. Fix it here Gallop bloody hell!!!!!!
