I always liked the idea of having the decider on neutral turf.

Sunday is stupid... Maybe a Saturday Night so fans can travel and get home etc?

This game was created by the QRL... The NRL need to shove off and keep it between QRL & NSWRL

back to Ribot , he has had little to do with SOO apart from being a player many years ago

If he can't make money from it , he isn't too interested in it

Ok Hap and Watto,cut the Qld v NSW, Ribot stuff for a minute and think how much would a SOO game in Melbourne make in dollars and how many new fans of rugby league would you get from the Vics,these are the questions I would be asking...the MCG holds about 100,000 I think,if we got half that amount through good marketing and promotion,wouldn't that be a good thing...it is still a Qld v NSW stoush ,played on a neutral ground and state but with the challenge of getting new fans and supporters of rugby league..
You may see me struggle...but you will never see me quit... :D

I am afraid guys it is not a neutral ground.

Victorians align themselves with Queensland.

It is the inferiority thing.

When they run the Melbourne Cup in Sydney or Brisbane - then they can have a game of SOO.

It is going to happen - however imo This is NSW and QLD - VIc can go and bite their Ar...!

It's not Queensland fault they can only build a 50K seat Stadium on a old cemetery....

They are smart and just charge the Queenslander's double to watch it..
