Monday night summer games to be shown again

48 posts in this topic

Lots of interesting things from this column: Monday night games will continue to be shown on Sky during the summer. They will include the Saints Wigan derby. The Broncos will take two games on the road again, one possibly at Oxford. I personally will be delighted if Wire do get to play in Kent.

Wigan's home game v Saints could be played on Good Friday if the 'tics soccer game v Norwich was moved to Sunday.

Not a soccer game the TV stations would be interested in surely?

Not happy about this at all. I renewed my season ticket this and last season on the understanding wigans home games would be in the majority on a friday night, occasionally sunday if the latics get in the way. I work late monday and its a hell of a job for me to get to the games and also arrange childcare. Why do we have to mess about just because SKY have nothing else to show during the summer. It sure isnt my fault yet i suffer. Admittedly everyone knows the fixtures could be moved, but this is pointless imo, purely for SKYs benefit and no help to any rugby league supporter.

Probably will help the 200k viewers/fans that will tune into SKY. SKY can move any fixture and have done for years, I don't know what the big shock is personally

I was thinking more of supporters who attend games, show their commitment to their team and the sport and then have the goalposts moved after theyve already renewed their ticket, surely it affects them far more than someone watching at home. Im not saying its a shock, but that doesnt make it fair.

It's a disgrace, Sky moving games around at short notice again.

Wish they would do Monday night as an extra, instead of replacing the Saturday match. Would like Premier sports to try and get into this by showing an extra match on the Saturday of the championship.

Well that was supposed to happen this year, but a pesky championship team got there and Sky decided they couldn't be bothered.

Good. I like a bit of MNRL

You and a few hundred thousand other people.

And advertisers. And Sky who pay us millions each year.

But this is not good enough because they are not Real Fans.

I'll bet some of those hundreds of thousands have never even heard of 'broken time'.

Its a big deal to me, and I paid upfront for a certain amount of of games, why shouldnt I be able to attend them, will SKY be refunding me a percentage of my season ticket price for those I now cant attend, no, of course not

Why don't you just ask Wigan for your money back then? I'm sure they would oblige a loyal fan.

Surely you knew that Sky would be showing Monday night games,as Blind side johnny stated,ask for a refund if your not happy.

Can i not just put forward my opinion without you having to finalise everything, i can have a moan if i like, its a forum, if i want to complain i will, and i have asked for a refund, on principal rather than for the cash, and i know i wont get it, but surely i can state my opinion on this forum without you taking the tone of "oh stop moaning, you knew it would happen". Yes i did, but that still doesnt make it right. If everyone accepted everything that wasnt right the world would never change

Should say ive asked SKY for the refund rather than wigan, as my beef is with them moving the games rather than the club

No one has stopped you from airing your view but why complain about something that you knew was going to happen?

Or as i see it, why not have an opinion on something i see is wrong. Do you sit back and agree with everything? I know my bills will rise, i know the BBC is wasting my license fee, etc but i can still complain about it, maybe if everyone who wasnt happy complained something might get done, or maybe not, but if we all just sit here accepting everything thats thrown at us then we're just a bunch of bl00dy sheep

No I don't but I know that some things are inevitable and unavoidable and complaining rarely achieves anything when dealing with large corporations.

Would it not make sense to wait to see the fixture list before purchasing/renewing a season ticket if there are days you are unavailable to attend matches?

Thats not having a go, but Leeds for example next year play home games on a thurs, fri, sat, sun and mon. Last year we played about 3 or 4 games on a monday home and away, so the potential for any team to do this is high.

Sky wont give any money back, youd be far more likely to get a refund from Wigan.
