Rothfield has it 100% right. As rare as that is. This from yesterday's telecrap. "THE NRL draw is in - some clubs scored, some got slammed. We check out the biggest winners and losers in the 2014 fixture. WINNERS BRONCOS Who else? Channel 9 boss David Gyngell was unapologetic about having Brisbane as a near permanent fixture on Friday nights after signing the NRL's $1 billion broadcast deal. The Broncos again dominate the timeslot by playing their first 10 games on Friday, including five at home, a huge advantage over rivals that have to deal with irregular turnarounds between matches. Brisbane has a reasonably testing start, playing finalists the Bulldogs, Cowboys and the champion Roosters in the first three rounds, but certainly can't complain it has been hard down by. The Friday night scheduling has actually gotten to the point where Broncos fans are sick of the repetition and the club is promoting rare Saturday and Sunday games as a selling point." You have to feel for the Sharks especially. Pathetic scheduling will make procuring sponsorship hard while the Donkeys can offer prospective sponsors maximum brand exposure. The NRL obviously has no interest in fairness. The funny thing is how the media bang on about how clubs with 4 Monday night games got a raw deal yet when we cop 7 in 2013......nothing but eerie silence. It's only Manly after all.
