    I am well and truely in favour of this. I heard Gallop on radio just over an hour ago and it sounds like the idea will be run through about four committees to get approval. But to be fair to the NRL they listened and compromised on the GF time and I am keen for this to happen so they can take their time and get it right.

    Gallop good luck trying to get the broadcasters i.e Fox to agree especially if they will get a decrease in people watching the game, more proof that fox/news limited looks after itself rather than help the game.

    With BE.

    Best schedule I believe is

    Friday - 2 games.... VIEWER'S CHOICE
    Saturday - 1 game at 3.00, 2nd & 3rd Game at 7.30... VIEWER'S CHOICE (my mates and I call the 5.30 game the "graveyard" slot.. hard to get a crowd.. hard to get viewers.)

    Sunday - 1 Game at noon... 2 games at 2.00.. one of them delayed onto channel nine even though i'm not a fan of the delayed games

    Monday - As is
