To be fair the Monday matches on Sky are now "the norm", and that should be factored in with what went on this season. I do sympathise with your plight - in fact I'm releaved Bradford have got away without a Monday match for a second year running (at least one not on a Bank Holiday) because I probably couldn't make it if there was one.
Sky really couldn't be making it easier though by announcing every Monday game so far out (months to make plans/book time off if needs be and your workplace allows), when they could be left with a few duffers at the expence of better matches going untelevised on in any particular round as the business end of the season approaches.
I agree they are the norm in that its the second season, and it looks like they are here to stay, but they are still only from the end of may to the start of august, which is backs up what i said about it being because the football isnt on. It wont be the "norm" unless they are prepared to do it for the full season, and if its such a great idea and good for rugby league, and SKY arent doing it just for themselves then why dont they do that?
You are spot on though about the early release of the fixtures, that is definitely a good move by SKY, very helpful, although those who cant attend still cant attend but like you say at least some can make plans early
