I'm just glad it's going to be the Dolphins.
I'd say it will be one of the lower drawing sydney teams like Tigers or Dragons that gets the bye that round.Robert Craddock brought up a good point a bit over a month ago when he said that with a 17 team comp, the NRL have backed themselves into a corner when magic round rolls around.
because that means that 1 team will miss out on the advantages of magic round. and how do they decide which team that will be ... he went further to say that you couldn't make 1 of the QLD teams have the bye that week, they'll be needed to play.
it's basically as I said from the get go. Broncos need to be shit to introduce the new team to draw fans away and make the transition easier. The deal also speaks of a reduced number of Broncos Friday night games. This could not happen if the Broncos were rating highly with Nine. The deal is very beneficial to Fox and News Corp.Hmmmm. News Corp conflict of interest much. This explains them death riding the broncos into the ground, how can we get rid of them from ownership.
It damages Nine Fairfax and is designed to aid Fox/News Corp.Lol that news believe that by blocking Brisbane from Thursday and a Friday night game they’ll get more Kayo subscribers.
For us, sure - but for the Mums and dads who enjoy watching their club on TV?
Channel 9 have four fkn channels - wasn’t that the point of digital television?
Only the NRL could and would hurt it’s cash cow. Redcliffe need to identify as Sunshine Coast - anything else is a disaster
You’re right: it’s an international league, and all the more reason the expansion should’ve been an Islander team, based in QLD.they make the most sense if you must add a second Brisbane team.
I do strongly believe the NRL should change their name though, because there is absolutely nothing "national" about this comp.
they should stop pretending and go back to the NSWRL
or if they really want to keep up pretenses, then they should call themselves the ECARL
