More Thursday Night Games

Recommended Posts

I hope we don't get lumped with Thursday nights over the Prime Time Friday slot.

Thoughts?

I'd take Thursday night games but with a preference for Friday nights.

Thursday is still terrific prime time exposure for sponsors and an opportunity to get a big crowd into an earlier game. If we get two or three of these Thursday night games and also play Anzac Day Eve, QBD and a Round 1 blockbuster against say Collingwood and throw in one or two Friday nights, we're a massive chance to break our attendance record again.

Not a huge fan. Was happy with the current number of Thurs games but more than that is a bit silly.

Given that ANZAC eve 2019 is a Wed, I'm wondering if a Thurs night game may come into play for us.

Happy for Thursday night games if inter state.

Prefer Friday games if at the g or ethibad (yes, I know). Loved going to those two finals, with post work beers and build up. Made for (very) late nights though.

it's happening...

I think they may also soon trial some Sunday night games as well.

Think about it... the networks already have the sunk costs in the form of the broadcasting rights. Any added variable costs of commentary teams and crew are readily covered by advertising revenue.

They could start with say WCE V Collingwood at 6pm Perth time.

Tipping we're getting one Thursday night game - West Coast V Melbourne in July at Optus.

I think we'll also get 3 Friday night games - one home MCG blockbuster against a big drawing VIC side. An away Etihad game. And one interstate.

Could have a Friday, then a Thursday before Anzac Eve. Would like that very much.

Just a humble request from an auld curmudgeonly Demons supporter.

When you post these links, can you post the link to the final destination, eg SEN or AFL, so that we auld curmudgeonly Demons supporters don't have to go to the Evil place?

Knowing our luck we'll play the next day.
