First crowd figure of the year is in - Day 1 at the Nines in Perth.
Your comprehension ability is poor. I don't recall anywhere where I actually said playing on Friday afternoon was a good idea.Timmah can we now confirm playing on a Friday afternoon was a fcking stupid idea? I know you like to wait for the result before making a prediction Lol.
Could have easily been 5.30 - 9.30 in WA if Friday night was compulsory. We've had 8.30 games here before and most telecasts go to 10.30 or 11 and it's Friday night. A better crowd in Perth would have been worth losing viewers who wouldn't watch the late games after 11 on the East Coast. The games finishing up at 8 in Perth, which is usually when NRL games start, is insane.
