We should see a few channel nine games you'd expect. Hopefully most are Friday night for the live broadcast. Although Sunday arvo for home matches would be good too.
It's out now and utter garbage.
2 Monday night and a Sunday night game
Takes us to 4 Monday night games... 0 Sunday or Sat night games.
Safe to say we lose another home game next season
I dont have twitter so cant tell Gould what i think about this.
It was the first year I decided to become a member rather than buying tickets on a ad-hoc basis. Looking at the draw I expected to miss 1 or 2 games due to Friday/Monday nights, but not 5.
Safe to say I wont be renewing, it's much more affordable to wait for the draw and attend when I can.
we always get shafted.
just need another 20k fans on top of what we have now and we'll get friday games, regardless of form.
surely Manly v Penrith coulda been moved to friday night with 1 of the 3 saturday games moved to sunday, who wants to see brisbane v st george....
what does everyone think of Monday night games? (in general, not panthers games)
They get very poor crowds, and are only for Foxtel, which I refuse to have on principle.
In short, they suck and should be done away with. I note the AFL is abandoning Sunday night games but it seems our sport is beholden to TV.
It doesn't worry me personally that the last 3 home games are in shitty timeslots because I'll probably attend all these games. However, if crowd figures are going to be held up as evidence of a club's viability or otherwise, the club should be entitled to choose when to stage its event. Obviously that's not possible, but we've got 4 Monday nights, 1 Sunday night (final round, no Monday game), and several 5.30 Saturdays.
We're supposed to have had a favourable draw according to threads elsewhere, you couldn't by any stretch call the timeslots favourable.
Very unimpressed with the draw. Our 3 last home games are basically near impossible for me to attend. Between work the following morning with 6am starts, and having a 6 month and 19 month old to worry about being out in the cold.
The draw makes it near impossible for us to get a decent home crowd average. Those are difficult games to get big crowds to anyway, throw them in the most inconvenient time slots and we will be lucky to get 12k to those games. If it rains you could probably bet it would be around 6k.
