How embarrassing.

The last placed team in the comp has 4 channel 9 games in the last 6 weeks.

Why are we playing the Dragons at ANZ and the Tigers at Parra Stadium?? Tigers game has been sold out for the past 4 years, the Dragons game only got a big crowd last year because of the multiple retirees on both sides...

Is this draw serious or made up?

I cannot believe that Channel 9 would agree with Parra playing the Storm in Melbourne on a Sunday afternoon.

The fact that we have 4 games on free to air in the last 6 weeks is just mind boggling.

Is the NRL and Channel 9 seriously expecting the Hayne Plane to arrive and we give the comp a late season charge?

Seriously???

Maybe 8 teams are going to get the ass by ASADA before seasons end?
That's the only way that draw makes sense

If your not going to pre-release the draw o maximise tv scheduling - the bottom few teams should be no-where near a channel 9 game! The only one maybe would be V Tigers

So it looks like we wont get to the see the team play live in Rd 22 and 23 on 9 as the other game involves Souths v Melbourne and then Souths v Manly.

I dont watch non-live games so it looks like I will only get to see 2 of the last 6 games. Probably a good thing given our current form.

Once again, are they serious???

It's all about the dollars. They will sell out Parramatta Stadium against the Tigers and take the cash from ANZ for the game likely to produce less turnover. Looks like someone is more interested in accommodating away supporters more than our supporters. The Dragons fans would much prefer it to be at ANZ I'm sure and the Tigers would more than likely prefer Parra Stadium.

Exactly.

So our season has no Sunday afternoon games at home. Brilliant

We won't sell out the Tigers game. If we do, it'll be Wests fans.

Are you serious? Why does it matter if it's live or not? If it's the ads just record and start watching 1 hour later then you can skip the ads.

Exactly.

I wanted to take my daughter but she is too young to go to night games. So she misses out again this year.

We might go close though.
We've been getting a core of around 8-9000 to games (excluding away supporters). Tigers always bring an almost equal amount - hence the sell outs.
We'll go close to getting 18000 I reckon, and that is near enough to a sell out.

That's a good tough draw leading into the semi finals, will put us in good stead for an assault on the title :cool:
