Congratulations to the Phoenix

Congratulations to the Phoenix for their first win of the regular season (ht Yellow Fever). I should have been there, but I am currently far too swamped with work.

For those that are complaining about the lackluster crowds I have to say – why the hell are the games on Sunday night? Even if the goal is to “attract families” I don’t think Sunday 5pm is a particularly good time. Give us some Friday and Saturday games and you will see a much larger crowd.

P.S. I will reply to all the comments that appeared over the weekend at some point (hopefully tonight) – I’m just a bit too tied up at the moment to answer things cleanly.

P.P.S. Also congratulation to Liverpool for beating Everton, and to Hull City for beating Arsenal 😉

    You missed out Matt. There are a couple of reasons why games are largely scheduled at 5pm on a Sunday: 1. To allow for Lions’ games to be played Fri/Sat. 2. The Nix play Aussie opposition and it fits into their scheduling. That’s two in a row you’ve missed now – I believe the rule is three strikes and you’re banned. 😉

    I think you’re right – no way I can miss the next one 🙂

    Keep the afternoon of Sunday 26th October free for a decent Backbencher session.
