    Just looking at the AFL and they have a 1.30 and a 4.30 game on today; generally a couple of games every Saturday afternoon.

    They always appear to be well attended.

    Was just thinking how good the return of a 2.30 Saturday game in the NRL would be. I reckon it'd be a winner.

      don't be silly!
      channel 9 would have to give up the sat arvo movie (that is usually on about it's 50th re-run).

      Not so sure it would be as popular than in Melbourne.
      Those wankers would pay to see paint dry.

      Id like it as much as, if not more than Sunday arvo footy. For me, drinking tinnys on a Saturday arvo watching league is more pleasurable than on a Sunday. Perhaps pen a letter to Dave Smith

      Take away the 2nd Saturday night fixture and move it to 2:30pm.

      Great idea and would be a boost to crowd numbers.

      I think one club (maybe ours) could suggest moving a Saturday night game to see how it went. We don't draw big numbers in that time slot anyway.

        The return of Saturday afternoon football will be confirmed on Wednesday with five games kicking off at 3pm (NSW) to finish the regular season.

        Discord has been told Melbourne will get their wish of a blockbuster game against South Sydney on Friday, August 9, at AAMI Park. The five Saturday afternoon games will include two at Mt Smart Stadium - which is really a 5pm kick-off, isn't it?

        Saturday afternoon has been vacant - handed over to the AFL - for years and Discord reckons it's a great move to take them on again.

        The draw for the final five rounds will be announced in the morning.

        3pm Saturday is a great schedule - all kids' sporting commitments are over and still time to go out after the game.:idea:

        When are the last 6 rounds announced ? I thought the NRL was releasing them yesterday :huh:

        I'm very pleased that the NRL hierarchy read this Forum and take so much notice of our opinions. Saturday afternoon football is a good start.

        Saturday arvo games are too user friendly. Families can attend and may even consider membership if it happened enough. Not only that, when they attend one game they are home too late to see the other games on fox. Its counter productive for the TV to have fans at games and out enjoying themselves,

        If the networks could ban fans from attending and have seat filler options with dubbed crowds, they would jump at the chance. A player could shoot for goal and they cue to the crowd scene to watch man u fans going wild. AHHHH TV bliss

        The sooner the fans realise they are not part of the bigger picture the better really

        I'm all for it. The more day games the better IMO.

        Nothing in it for us. Although we do finish off
        the season proper with a Sunday arvo game
        at Brookie against the Panthers.

        Still, good to see @COMMANDER
        has the ear of NRL hierarchy.:p
