Won’t raise the tv rights much doing thatIf MNF is very marketable, then the NRL needs to get rid of Thursday nights. You can’t have five nights of football. It becomes oversaturated.
The NRL also shouldn’t manufacture more undesirable timeslots for crowds. There has to be a balance, or a happy medium where you have timeslots that suit the broadcasters and timeslots that could attract larger attendances.
On another point, players IMO need a minimum of a six day turnaround between matches. As time goes by, player welfare is going to become a bigger bigger issue.
I don't like players backing up from Origin two or three days later. Although in recent times, coaches are resting their Origin players and are thinking the long game. Coaches don't want tired, broken down bodies in the finals.
Whatever code you follow, we all take for granted the scheduling of a typical round. But aa highlighted in this post, there's more to it than meets the eye.
it’s about adding more value for broadcasters than we currently do
getting rid of mnf was always a knee jerk reaction
