    Its interesting to note that after 7 rounds (14 GAMES) there are only 9 teams so far who have graced a free to air tv game. I would have thought that while a lot of it has to do with high rating games for advertising perposes with the comp so close we could have seen nearly every team in a free to air game so far this season. Even a little less bias would be an improvement. I just can't see how the Broncos should be allowed to take 5 out of 7 rounds on free to air.

    Broncos: 5
    Tigers: 4
    Cowboys: 4
    Eels: 4
    Dragons: 3
    Panthers: 3
    Knights: 2
    Bulldogs: 2
    Roosters: 1

    It's definitely a bad thing coz sponsors don't want to be involved with teams that don't get any free-to-air coverage. It also makes it harder to get fans from outside the Peninsula, which leads to less merchandise sales, it all adds up to a loss of $$$

    Even further to that argument, 6 of the top 8 highest earing clubs from last season are on that free to air list so far this season.

    Brisbane - 20.3 Million
    Roosters - 15.19 million
    Dragons - 15.03 million
    Newcastle - 12.76 million
    Bulldogs - 12.55 million
    Paramatta - 11.5 million
