    Apologies if this has already been covered as I haven't been on here for a while, but I just realised the Storm are away the first 2 weeks of the comp whilst there is no AFL in Melbourne. They will then play their first home game in direct competition with the AFL, why does the game continually miss supposedly easy opportunities to promote the game and get new supporters to attend. Instead of potentially getting 20K+ at AAMI Park the other night we were busy promoting the game in that new league outpost Belmore!!!
    Is this something that will be fixed next year when the NRL take over the scheduling???

    The current scheduling would have zero impact on actual venues for games, only on dates and times. (Thats my understanding anyway)

    So if its a venue issue, that would be in the hands of Greenberg and his cronies already.

    Their R3 game won't be in direct competition with AFL unless you are referring to the women's comp.

    AFL doesn't start until last weekend of March.

    AAMI park was in use last weekend for a 'weddings parties anything' reunion concert

    Should be a minimum of 2 home games while the fumble-a-thon hasn't stated

    Don't get me started on the fact they don't schedule Storm home games for Good Friday, when there's no AFL

    Good move not to schedule it, if you ask me..

    It's disappointing but what can you do.

    Its f*cking crazy when you also consider Cowboys getting 4 homegames in the first 6 rounds, just to get as much of the wet season as possible....

    They should have Storm vs Dragons on Good Friday. This year Saints are not playing in Melbourne at all which is just f**king geniused.

    It's beyond stupid. And to schedule the blockbuster Broncos clash on Thu night means a depleted crowd.

    This.
    Myself and my missus will be going, but that's only because we are rusted on fans. Trying to get someone who is a bit apprehensive will be extremely difficult. Storm are hoping for 20k (which will be marvellous) but I reckon 15-17ish

    This is ridiculous - where else are we going to see mirth inducing penalty tries?

    Broncos v Roosters on a Thursday - absolute merrrrrrrrkins
    I wanted to travel to Brissie this year to see the Roosters, but now I won't be able to

    I'm going up for Easter instead and will be able to see Broncos v Titans which I am more than a little excited about tbh
