Especially when some of these players were incredibly unlucky to be sacked in the first place. Pretty drastic move. Will be interesting to see how they go next year, really don't have a clue where they'll place.

I'm not really familiar with the players, but the write-ups I've read make it sound like they've dropped at least a couple of real talents who've just had some injuries interfere with their career.

i've heard conspiracy theories.

if it's one thing the packers have done over the years - with its delayed coverage, obsession with paul vautin, interstate blackout and draconian contracts in the 1990s - it's make benefit glorious sport of rugby league.

needless to say, these conspiracy theories are as likely that september 11 was staged by the us government.

It's really the fact that the fat, rich bastard will be closing down channel ONE that's pissing me off.

Could be the death of FTA sport in the country? Or am I exaggerating?

Christ, I hope not - ONE's the only way I can get my NFL fix. All the pay TV plans are ridiculous.

It's a real shame. Despite my relative disinterest in NFL, baseball etc. ONE does have some pretty darn good stuff on it.

Haven't we learnt anything from the state cricket tournament that taking sport off free-to-air is disastrous?

Also, seriously, the pay TV plans in this country are fucking stupid. I don't want to pay a heap of money for a heap of channels I don't want just to get a few channels I do want, so I don't pay it. If I could pay $15 to select the five or six channels I do actually want, I'd pay it. Foxtel don't want my $15 a month now?

Pay TV shits all over Free To Air though. I love watching AFL with No Ads between goals. I do know that FTA could never do that, because...well where do they get the money to fund shit shows like X Factor ECT.

I don't see how Pay TV "shits all over" FTA. Besides the lack of ads, I see basically no difference. In fact, as far as rugby goes, the commentary on Fox Sports is just as dire as on 7. I'd rather watch it on mute than listen to either.

I just checked how much it would cost me to get Foxtel. You know what I want? I just want the sports channels and UK TV. Not asking much. So ... hmm, first up, I have to pay a whopping $44 for a "get started" package of channels that I DON'T WANT and have basically no interest in, then $16 for the sport channels I want (and a few I don't), then $16 for UK TV and a swag of channels I couldn't give a shit about.

All I want is four bloody channels and it's $76. Jesus fucking Christ. Guess I can let UK TV go because my favourite comedies I own on DVD, but still, $60 is a total rip just for some sport. Only a couple of the other channels I'd get along with the sport channels vaguely interest me.

Well, uh, there are 3 teams in one stadium, two go up to play for 20 minute halves. Rinse and repeat.

I think it's pretty cruddy.

Cruddy puts it mildly. I don't know what they're trying to prove with regular pre-season shenanigans. Just extend the main season, please.

No way, they're actually implementing that? I remember hearing about it as one of several options earlier this year, but I never thought they'd actually do something so utterly stupid.

BRING BACK STATE OF ORIGIN.
