Ok - I admit i watch VERY few games other than Manly.... so this is only a semi-informed post.

But with the news today of Dallin Watene-Zelezniak moving to the warriors, have we gotten a little lucky?

We still have to play the Dogs twice - but I fully expect us to beat them on both occasions regardless of Dallin Watene-Zelezniak being available.

More interestingly - the Warriors will theoretically improve with this inclusion (yes, no?) And they play a LOT of the teams around and in front of us over the coming months. Could the Warriors signing help them improve? Will it benefit us?

interested to hear rom the Warriors fans/watchers here...

Effectively Dallin replaces Ken and adds a bit of speed and fullback cover, we still need a gun half signing to make the 8 I reckon, a DCE would take us next level. You'll put 100 on the doggies twice.

Bronco's fans what do we think of the Ikin appointment?

Shame to lose him from 360




He’s a smart guy that knows his shit. It's a good appointment.

A good hiring.
Need a level head that isn’t in the pockets of player managers. Hopefully it works out, but if it doesn’t he can be sacked lol.

POSITION VACANT: Someone to replace Morkel as Digital Artist. Must be able to make signature of attractive football players once every 3-5 years. Will be paid in likes from time to time.

Are we having a cross forum for SOO II?

Or are passions too high for that one?

I think replace high with low. The feeling I get on our boards is nowhere near as many as usual are really all that overly interested in it. The state of the game and Broncos has made a lot of us not really care about league this year and Vlandys is killing the game. I for one will not watch another non-Broncos game until the amateurish spontaneous rule changes and incompetence is either reduced or preferably gone.

Not sure which thread to put it in but feels appropriate in here with the cross forum members. Why are all big NRL games i.e Grand final, state of origin etc always on a work night 😡.
Is it an Aussie thing? 😃.
Why can't they follow every other major sports format of doing it on a Friday or Saturday night?

It's mainly because The NRL are completely and utterly out of touch with their fan base.

Started with horsey and the night time grand finals and choosing to alienate kids from being able to watch.
Greenburg proved it with his "Major stadia" strategy that was completely out of touch with the actual geography of the city where most games are, Sydney, not understanding "as the crow flies" and driving on Sydney roads are two different things
He compounded that by putting games on Thursday nights and wondering why people didn't show up, mate like eff I want to try and get back from work and then to a game by 6:30 at night, I am lucky if I am anywhere near home by that time.

Vlandy's has really sealed the notion with his current idea of "fans want a faster higher scoring game" and the rest of his rule tweaks.

It's pretty simple, they don't care about the fans, don't understand that the game is as much about the fans as anyone else, and without them they have no game at all.

Work nights = people being in front of the telly.

Friday and saturday night = people going out for dinner/ drinks (and not in front of a telly).

Television ratings might be a higher priority than having bums on seats inside a stadium.

To stop fans congregating at friend’s houses and only watching on one screen= better tv ratings. In the 90s gf day used to be a barbecue with all your mates, not anymore though.

Kids kicking the footy in the streets.

I'm pretty sure the idea of it creates better tv ratings was disproven, it's actually the reason Monday night games were scrapped because no one wants to watch footy on a Monday.
