I kinda liked the two codes having different systems, made it more interesting. The Mcintyre system needed to be looked at though, so stuff like 2006 doesn't happen again, where Newcastle (4th) beat Manly (5th) first week, and Brisbane (3rd) beat St George (6th), and the two winners were 'rewarded' by having to play each other, 3 vs 4, meaning they had a much tougher game than the teams they beat, who were 'punished' by getting to play each other, 5 vs 6, giving them an easier game, when it should've been 1st week winner vs 1st week loser, 3 vs 5 and 4 vs 6.

Hopefully they also sort out the 'home reigon' BS that meant the Manly vs NQ game last year was at the SFS, despite the fact they knew no Manly supporters would make the effort to travel into the Eastern Suburbs for it.

I like the change. No more headscratching and "if this team wins, but that team loses" discussions on the first weekend of finals
so ur not a fan, but you like the change

Home region is still staying but its garbage. Even against NQ, we'd have packed out Brookie for that game. The transport system in sydney is a joke, i wasn't about to go to the game past the fucking city. Other fans whine about us Manly fans not travelling but in the time it takes, round trip in the 20-30km or whatever it is from brookie to SFS and back via public transport you could drive to Newcastle.

For example my uni is out pretty close to the SFS, took me 90 mins to get to uni each day on public transport, and then 90 mins on the way home.

Home region is a complete joke. Gold Coast, North Queensland, Canberra, Melbourne, Warriors, Brisbane & Newcastle get to play at their actual home grounds in week 1/2. All the Sydney teams have to go to the SFS or ANZ (which is fine if you're a Rooster, Bulldog or Souths fan) but the rest of us are copping a raw deal.

You're spot on with the public transport mess, and it's a large factor into why you don't get a huge turnup on Manly supporters who travel into the city.

I'd much rather see a packed Leichhardt, or Brookie, or even scummy Kogarah, and see a team who earnt a home final be actually able to play at their true home ground, than an SFS or ANZ that can barely muster 20,000 fans and reduce the atmosphere of the game. Look at S15 and AFL finals, you don't see empty seats, yet last years Manly/Cowboys and even Manly/Brisbane games, both at the SFS, you could see bays of empty seats, which is an absolute travesty. It needs to be fixed asap - fuck people if they can't get a ticket, that's what memberships are for, securing the early offer to buy these tickets. Miss out on a ticket then you can watch on 9. Simple really.

it depends on the teams though. cronulla finished in 3rd back in 2008 and got a home final against the raiders because it was obvious that shark park wouldn't sell out due to our lower supporter base and the opposition being 5 hours away

its all about making money for the NRL, whereas it should be about atmosphere. as you said sxe a packed leichhardt or brookvale on a friday night or sunday afternoon is premium viewing, even on TV

How many was in attendance for our finals games last year? If you have those games at Brookie, its a sell out. You would have an absolutely packed house and an amazing atmosphere.

He can’t defend. It’s as simple as that. Hell, Joe Williams was a better defender.

That’s one side of the game. Fielding is most certainly a team task.

Myles is “awful”, Harrison is “shit”? Oh, dear. What? Club form? They’ve been handing Gallen, Watmough, Stewart etc. their collective ass in SOO. Lol at Tony Williams, the guy makes like 4 tackles a game... a winger’s workload.

No, Thaiday, Matt Scott, Parker, Thurston, Cronk, Smith, Lockyer & Slater have been handing them their asses, not shithouse twats who only get a run because of name value and being born in Queensland.

I know that, Sandow is garbage. Using him in this argument is pointless becuase he's not a good player.

Fielding isn't a team task for the most part and certainly not something that requires you to know who you're playing with. You call for the ball if it gets skied, common sense. You back up the thrower, common habit for anyone who plays cricket.

They're both garbage at club level and certainly haven't done anything of note at Origin level other than be on and apart of a really good side.

Williams was a winger until late last year You see blokes running at him? No one does.
