Ok so we hear people complaining about early season player transfers, also people complain about teams losing players to Origin and players whinging about player fatigue late in the season. So i have a concept that i think will address some of the issues The NRL has a mid season 3 week (2 weekend) break! Okay so i hear people hating this already but hear me out. So the NRL concludes on a Sunday night (Monday game shifted that week) and then the next two weekends are NRL free. During this 2 week period players can negotiate and sign with other clubs (for the following year). If deals are not concluded during this period then the window re-opens the Tuesday after the GF State of Origin is played on the 3 consecutive Wednesdays during this period meaning it gains full attention and does not disrupt teams seasons (players would miss the weekend before game 1 and back up after game 3 but hey, nothings perfect) City v Country and the NRL All Stars match (minus SOO players) are played on one of the weekends each during this period. With the possibilty a NZ v England/France match as well. I really think this would work Obviously there are the drawbacks A) missing our NRL for two weekends - But think it makes the Season 2 weeks longer meaning the off season is shorter. Plus its not like we would be sitting idle, with a frenzy of footy activity happening. B) Origin players would find it hard to negotiate deals - Tough imo, they can do it after the season Overall though i think the positives outweigh any small drawbacks, what does everyone think?
