    I can't see the Roosters taking another home game up to Darwin for a while. They were pathetic.

    Yeah mate, I was in a corporate box. Some of the Cowboy tries were excellent I have to say, I liked Taumalolo run for his first try and Bowen's second try was good too. What did you make of the game?

    I have to say TIO stadium is quite good, its better suited for AFL but still the facilities are good.

    Love seeing Manly lose, also nice to see Toovey take it in good spirits by having a whinge at the presser about everything. Though in saying that I definitely agree with what he said about the Broncos schedule (massive advantage playing the same night for at least the first 8 rounds).

    Yeah its a massive help for us. The 5 day turnaround from Monday night to Saturday night has hurt many teams over the last couple of years.

    I don't really get why Nine think the Broncos need to be shown every week, its a bit of an insult to QLD fans that we wont watch the second game if it doesn't involve a QLD team.

    Also, if they did want to show the Broncos, a Sunday afternoon game could draw good ratings and I'm pretty sure the Broncos would prefer Sunday arvo slightly ahead of Friday night anyway.

    It would also be nice to watch a Broncos game without Ray Hadley commentating. As a TV commentator he is hopeless.

    Yeah sick of Broncos on Friday nights.

    Have a season ticket, and gave Friday against the Raiders a miss this week.

    It's such a mission to get to the game after work.

    Would love some Sunday arvo matches.

    If nine don't take the Broncos for Friday fox get a stab at them. Sunday game is the 4th choice game. There needs to be another team in qld with the same pull as the Broncos, but how do you do that? The Titans don't seem to be capturing the publics imagination, i find it hard to believe the Bombers or Jets would do any better.

    Only way to do it is to get rid of our ridiculous scheduling so teams other than the Broncos and Tigers can build a profile. For me how the new tv deal is structured is more important than how such money we get. Promotion in expansion non heartland areas and scheduling have to be fixed if the game is to grow.

    Was such a weird first half; Cronulla were so much better than you other than for three pieces of Hayne brilliance, and yet it's 18-18. Hayne is definitely the best back in the game though IMO - to be playing at 60% fitness and keep a team overplayed by so much in the game anyway off his own bat is just amazing.

    Surely Esi Tonga is playing because it's part of Willie's deal? He missed three tackles one on one which led to one try and a combined 763 metres for cronulla.

    **** he is.

    Maybe I'll start with my own ****ing trash excuse for ****ing **** team. Half of them belong in NSW cup. 60-0 in one week fml so so much.

    Sitting here surrounded by Tigers fans. This little brat won't shut up behind me. I'll give him something to yell about.

    Looks like sticky has his halves combination sorted. Paves the way for the golden child Dugan to waltz back into the side.

    Wasn't Stuart waxing lyrical about having to play players in their natural positions last year?
