Pre season doesn't workIt needs to be in the pre-season when interest is at it's highest due to no footy for several months and clubs are more willing to release players to give them some game time before the season starts.
There is the risk of injury so close to the start of the season, but then again Darius Boyd did his Achilles during pre-season training so the risk of injury is always there regardless.
It also needs to be away from Sydney. Sydney fans don't turn up to games.
