    Good idea. Means at least 7 out of the 8 games will be live for the first four rounds.

    Also by my calculations that means the official opening match is Thursday 7th March. Is this correct?

    Thursdays should get better ratings than fridays and better crowds than mondays imo

    Would you rather watch a game on 2 hr delay on Friday night with Hadley commentating?

    At least this guarantees one live game at 7.30pm on both Thursday and Friday nights nationwide (and with Rabs commentating both - not Hadley) for the month of March.

    not if the China game goes ahead
    ( my mate in the raiders front office reckons its 70/30 now )
    the official season opening game would be on Feb 23rd Manly V Raiders .. the sat night televised on Fox
    the charity shield will be on the night before

    then the rest of the round then commences on Thursday March 7th

    Aha! I questioned why they put us and St Merge on the Friday night and nobody was able to come up with an answer. That makes a lot of sense though.

    But will Canberra and Manly play on the 7th-11th weekend or have a 3 week break until Round 2?

    They need to have fewer night games and more day games kinda like the NFL.

    I wouldn't mind to see the sharks vs dragons or sharks vs tigers or sharks vs panthers. But I would prefer sharks and dragons, they are nuts!

    TBA March 2013 First home game at WIN Jubilee Oval, Kogarah
    TBA March 2013 First home game at WIN Stadium, Wollongong

    Looks like the Dragons will be splitting home games evenly this year instead of in two blocks as with the previous two seasons (which makes sense with no major works going on anymore).

    Like they have every year where one of their stadiums isn't being upgraded.

    Yes.

    Was there a need for the smart-arse remark? You really seem to be going out of your way to be a nark to people :?

    I'm guessing with 83 posts he's trying to make a bit of a name for himself.

    I'm just commenting on the topic at hand, thus the reason I haven't replied to anyone's comments about me (simply, I do not care). I haven't targeted anyone or attack any poster on here. If anyone has a issue with any of my post I would say it has more to do with that person than me. I hope this kind of posting is restricted to the off-season with everyone bored without games being played.

    If anyone has any issue with my post I'm open to feedback, send me a PM or post on my page and I'll get back to you.

    I'll go back to posting about the topic.

    Then why not address people in some sort of polite manner instead of coming across like a belligerent moron?

    Yes, everyone else, I get the irony. :p

    You must have some issues if you continue to resort to name calling. I won't be getting into that immature mess or games. As I have said, I've only comment on topics. I haven't addressed anyone.
