    Yeah they are some good points. The bongos constant friday night snorefests are getting tiresome.

    If your like me, I only really watch the live friday game and the Manly game, so It would b nice to actually watch some variety of games.

    I have been a big supporter of moving SOO to a saturday stand alone weekend. Its not fair on the club or supporters to lose your players.

    ^^^ It's the way it's done in soccer. Every club comp stops and they play the international matches right across the globe.

    I'm starting to think maybe SOO & NRL get with the 21st century and play origin as a stand-alone weekend fixture, probably 3 weeks apart.

    No need for byes, so season is about as long as before.

      All just piss and wind really. The NRL has to take into consideration what the real owners ( the TV companies) want.

      They pay for it and they will get their way. You just have to accept it. Small wins can be made here and there like now getting Sundays games live but Brisbane will get top slot because that's what the market demands.

      That's life.

      The Sharks have no equal in their quest for the Grail.

      Mind you, in recent times, and quite apart ( and in spite of) of our on field success I reckon we are only just in front of the Sharks and the Titans as to the most disliked teams by the No Real Leadership.

      Hell, if tv didnt dictate the timings we would ho to something similar that the NFL use. Play all games on Sunday afternoons into Sunday night with only one game on Monday night.

        Foxsports this weekend is replaying 20 matches, every one of which features the Steelers (Dragons), and none of which is against Manly.
        WTF is that about??

        Well, replaying 20 old Steelers matches proves Fox is run by idiots.

        They are doing a day for every team. Manly is on thursday starting around lunch and then going through to friday morn, Looks like an assortment of games from the early 80s till recent games.
