    I don't see why we need new NRL threads these days tbh, given that they seem to get **** all activity.

    So are you still excited about Brooks UV?

    The first week of the draw was a bit weird. 7 games in Sydney seems excessive, definitely think that a game like Panthers vs Knights should have been in Newcastle and probably Manly vs Melbourne should be in Melbourne instead of Brookvale to take advantage of no AFL and to draw a bigger crowd (in both games) Parramatta vs New Zealand perhaps in NZ too, although Will Hopoate's Eels debut should attract interest.

    If you aren't concerned with crowds, the matches seem pretty good though, can't wait for Barba vs the Dogs.

    Now now. There's only one way to solve that Morgs.

    Reckon it's going to be a real interesting year. Lots of questions. I wonder how Dragons fans are going to respond to having more games at the oval mostrosity. I wonder if the Saturday afternoon timeslot will be popular. I wonder whether Barba is going to settle back into his 2012 groove. I wonder if Parra are going to improve at all. I wonder if noted boxer Blake Ferguson will end up back in the sport he's actually good at. I wonder if it's possible to make a logo ****tier than our new one. Really looking forward to it.

    I guess the main thing is the Broncos get 21 Friday night games through the year again. What a ****ing joke.

    And well played th NRL on stiffing it's most financially strapped club by giving it no Sunday arvo home games and a stack of MNF. Seriously stupid move that.

    There is a rule that has been put in place that means no team is allowed to play more than 18 matches on nein. No doubt Broncos, will get the full complement or very close to it. It seriously is rubbish as Broncos people who say that Sunday afternoon is their ideal day. I feel sorry for Titans fans too, having to play 5 home games on a Monday night.

    Broncos get so much out of it though. Might not be great for the fans but being on FTA every week drives up sponsorship prices and brand exposure. Besides, $1m gives Gyngell the right to do what he bloody well likes with the sport doesn't it?

    What happens if the Broncos have a Parra 2013-like year? Wouldn't you want to safeguard against that somewhat, by not putting most of your eggs in the basket of a team which finished in the bottom half last year.

    On to the bold part, it means that most weeks I get the good fortune of watching my team on a delayed telecast with a bunch of commercials on it instead of watching in live on Fox Sports like every match they have.

    It's always going to be tricky with the draw so early, but yes. Their Sydney programming is even worse though. Tigers vs Eels in Round 22 a particular highlight.
