The quality of football during daylight hours is far superior, and the fans obviously want afternoon matches judging by the 40,000 at today's match. So, will the Independent Commission do what's best for the game and its fans by taking control of scheduling and maximise the number of afternoon matches next season, or... will they drop their pants and bend over again and allow the TV networks total control? Sure, they won't get as much $ if the NRL takes back control, but for the good of the game the NRL must be the masters, and the broadcasters must be the ones taking the orders. Will $ win out? Unfortunately I think it is almost certain.
