    Carr is a hypocrite ... it was alright for QLD to have a period of 3 years where they only hosted 1 game (2008-2010) but its not ok for NSW to go through the same cycle

  2. They're not serious surely?

    Just because last time they had a 3-year cycle like this was 2005-2007...where they won the first series and lost the next 2.
    Idiots.

    Fair enough. I want 2 games in Sydney

    1. I'll have a better chance of getting to the game
    2. It would mean there wouldn't be 2 games in Sydney since 2010, it's supposed to change each year.

    He's listening to the dumb face journo's (paul kent hai) pushing their barrow. It's how it has been for a long, long time.

    Hey Broncoman, this is how it's been for ages. Both states agree'd to give one game to Melbourne every second year. so when it's your year to go to Melbourne it means that it's 3 years with only 1 game.

    It sucks, but QLD managed to win when they only had 1 game in Brisbane each year.

    ----

    I am of the thought that Melbourne should get no games, but why should we give up our home game next year for Sydney?????

  5. No, not "fair enough". We gave up a home game to Melbourne last time, NSW gave up a home game this year. It was their turn. Now they are trying to re-write the rules again instead of just sucking it up and trying to win on the field.

    From all the rubbish I have seen NSW spit out - this is by far the biggest this year.

    Even Sooky can't stand up to that.. but you know, I read the first few lines and thought I was going to reply "I bet this has something to do with Sooky's conditions to keep on as coach" - then the very next line answered my precise reply for me!

    If they change that, then they can just change anything... they've failed with only influencing the refs, now it's time start controlling other factors. Feel for the whole QLD rugby community...

    EDIT: I would be so embarrassed to be a NSW supporter.. NSW just never seem to want to look something square on and set out to achieve it.. always have to change the odds in their favour some how. Makes 7 years straight that much more amazing for QLD.

  7. Did Queensland whinge in 2008-2010? No, just went ahead and won 5 of the 6 games we had to play on the road in those 3 series, and 2 of the 3 at home...

    It's genuinely worrying how many people high up in both the NSWRL and nsw league media dont understand how the pattern works. each team takes turns getting 2 home games in a row, with every 3rd year a game going to melbourne. you would think people in these positions would know that yet we have sticky complaining non stop and people like Roffield pushing his uniformed opinions down everyone's throats. NSWRL had better not succeed with this bid, or its just bullshit. Trying to win off the field when they cant win on it
     
  9. The other stupid thing is the last series they won had 2 games in Brisbane. Their argument is purely because they're afraid they're not good enough to do the same thing again. This BS about "new south wales fans deserve more games" is pure garbage. Their motivation is wholly and solely trying to give them the best chance to win.

    It'd be just like the Broncos starting a public campaign to say we should play 2 thirds of our games at home and then make up a BS argument that we get the best crowds and so therefore our fans deserve more games.

    There's a very good reason why scheduling is the responsibility of the head body and not the teams themselves...

    theyre essentially holding the game to ransom with this, as the higher ups want Ricky Stuart as the NSW coach, and hes basiclly saying he'll only do it if NSW gets 2 games at home and they throw a boatload more money at him.

    for someone whos sick of being called a whinger, hes not helping his cause.

    Didn't NSW agree to this in the first place? Anything to get an advantage.

    It reeks of desperation doesn't it. QLD with 2 games at home which means 8 in a row is on the menu.:haha:

    NSW are very well aware of the rules, they just ignore it as it doesn't suit their agenda anymore.. they will come up with some rubbish justification just wait.. useless..

    This is a nothing story.

    If Queensland doesn't host two games next season it's more likely we'll see one game in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne than two Sydney fixtures.The ARLC isn't going to switch the set up because of some thinly veiled threats from the NSWRL...

    I would love to believe you but when I see two games played (or announced to be played) in Brisbane next year I will only believe it then. You underestimate what these guys are capable of..

    Plus, it's our turn to have two in Brisbane, even one in Melbourne would be a joke.
     
  18. Yes, but there's been persistent rumours Victoria have made a huge play to host an Origin game a year for the next 5 years.

    $12.5 mill. It means a lot more than that to Brisbane just in monetary terms.
     
    So who exactly gets that 12.5m? The NRL or the QLD government?
