    ? Don't think the Sunday is the reason at all! Characters like Gallen have been missed. Noticed alot more interest/promotion from pubs and clubs throughout this series. (Moreso than previous years)That may be the "growth" factor not being counted.

    My kids do not watch.

    I do not hold it against them, they just do not care for sport, any.

    I should disown them, but they just have never cared for it, DNA test I reckon.

    Cut the insufferable moaning Myrtle merkins of Gould and Rabbits would be a good start.

    Thats where I think it is bigger than the GF. So many people watch origin at the pub. It is many thousands of sets of eyes that do not get counted in these ratings.

    In my opinion it is probably more the captains that are the problem. I think Kev and Fittler promote the series well but DCE and Cordner are very low energy individuals.

    GF is still massive champ. I've bought tickets last week. Randwick races on the Saturday and footy GF on the Sunday. Got well priced accomodation and looking forward to it no matter who is playing. Think it will be the last 83000 plus rugby league/football crowd in Sydney unless they build a bigger/user friendly stadium into the future.

    ? The Sunday game was a total blowout and still almost rated as well as a game 3 which was not only the series decider but also a cracker of a game. I don’t see how those ratings are an argument against a Sunday game.

    Personally I don’t think the day of the week matters anyway. What we need is a dedicated origin period. Not only to stop the drain on the NRL but so you can have a 3-4 week period where SOO dominates the media entirely. It would be great for both.

    Three Sunday state games in a row. Complemented by other internationals & women's games . Then a Kangaroos v Kiwi or Tonga test on the 4th Sunday/weekend with other internationals at play?

    It does impact it for people who weren’t aware it was on a Sunday or who chose to watch something else because it was a Sunday night. It’s not that different to a lot of programming which relies on routine to build audiences. Everyone knew origin is on a Wednesday night, but if you missed the Sunday game you are less inclined to watch the following Wednesday game.

    Think that's more a matter of time and getting used to the day. Some things take time . The benefits of having the other representative matches far out way a downtime for the general public getting used to Sunday state games. Another factor not mentioned is other streaming avenues which did not happen years ago.

    I think the pre-game build up of the tv coverage kills it for causal and non-RL fans, it’s pretty much 50 minutes of tripe. KO no later than 7:50. So many kids would love to stay up to watch it, but can’t stay up

    So some people are stupid then. Seriously, with all the publicity about State of Origin how can you not know when each origin game is on. Do people lock themselves away and just open the door when they expect an origin game to be on. Jesus Christ what sort of world do we live in!

    Very significant and useful information. I'd suggest very positive! Including the various aspects on the next media deal will be worthwhile and fruitful.
