An idea I've had for a while is to try & maximise D/N timeslots to try & keep it going nearly every day instead of throttling it by reducing it to weekends only. I know it's difficult, because only ND (Bay/Seddon), CD (McLean), & Canterbury (Hagley) can host such games comfortably (unless Auckland host such games inside Eden Park & Wellington at the Cake Tin). Try to maximise the after work/evening family crowds (& hopefully TV friendly too). On weekends, you can afford more daytime games; keep them.
We could bring back Owen Delany Park!

It'd be a nice change of scenery from Bay & Seddon. I'm still a bit sad that the game in Whangarei got stuffed up due to the Covid restrictions in Northland, otherwise I would've gone to it.

My frustration is that Otago doesn't have a ground with lights.

I always liked Lou back in the day and after his fall from grace and mental health issues I had feared he'd be a tragic story, but it's nice to see he's found some peace
Lou is, was and always will be a great bloke. Absolute ripper who deserves to be happy and made mistakes which he owned. No justice in the world that the other guy who manipulated him and did things a lot worse got to walk off relatively scot free.

Well, the manipulator is in a worse place now.

But totally agree re: Vincent

I can't do Scotty Stevenson. It just amazing that every person I know despises his fan-girl inept and unnuanced commentary yet they keep hiring him. Do they do zero customer research? Clearly they don't.

Bloody hell, I thought it would happen but that’s depressing reading nevertheless. So three more years and then maybe we’ll get Sky back and get rid of this halfwit from our coverage.
