    I was listening to 'Sports Today' on the radio last week, and Johnny Gibbs sugested that they were going to play a Monday night game, what happened to that idea?
    You know it makes sense.

    But surely they can make an exception when it's the sole Victorian team playing at the same time as the biggest AFL club in the state? Even moving it to Sunday evening would be better.

    I'm no rugby fan, but I don't want to see Melbourne fail to attract crowds.

    Television dictates when the match will be played, Channel 9 say 4pm Sunday, then thats when it's played...

    Why should their schedule be dictated by another sport?

    Adelaide(2)
    West Coast(1)
    Collingwood(5)

    Newcastle(4)
    Brisbane(3)
