Doing the day shift on Monday, so i will be home to watch the game. Friends popping round with Pizza and Beer, and i will make some Butterscotch Popcorn to nibble on after dinner. It would be nice to get a win against the Dragons. :)

Toughen up man , go to the game and then travel straight to where the seminar is being held and sleep there

Geo said he would pay all the cab fares and accommodation , he's a generous bloke

Honestly ,what the worst thing that could happen :shock:

Then again last time Geo got something from his wallet it was in pounds and shillings and convicts were still being shipped to Australia

tigermama and myself had a quick chat about mnf in another thread. i dont mind it...when other teams are playing! its only when the tigers are on mnf i dont like it because it just doesnt have the same feel and as said before, the atmosphere at them just always seems really flat.
its just...unaustralian!

I'd rather have MNF than have the second game on a Friday night , which we have coming up soon .
Now that really sucks !

Had the same problem( no Foxtel) so now have the Digital Pass and get it live on that. Only problem is it can't be streamed to the big screen, so it's my iPad for all of foxtels games. ((It also gets the free to air games
At least it's better than nothing, and only cost approx $90 per year.
Had it last year but the picture was crap, don't know what they have changed , but the picture this year has been great

Not a fan either. It is certainly a crowd killer as far as I'm concerned. No way am I going to put up with traffic to firstly get home and then head back into it, particularly with packed peak hour trains also not being a practical family alternative afterwards at night.

Hate MNF as well - non event, especially if you don't have Fox. (can't afford it).

This MN the game is crucial, with the games that follow we need the 2.

Might have to check that out, thanks for the tip, GCT. My laptop is ok to watch games on. At least it will make MNF accessible for me, if I can remember it's on lol. I hate how the whole world just assumes everyone has Pay TV.

Yeah as GCT said, it's a lot better this year, so maybe they have fixed up all the problems from last year. I imagine they would have had a flood of complaints from people paying $90 a year for crap reception.

I remember the time when Pay TV had no ads, bar the ones advertising upcoming shows and movies, much like at the cinema. The footy was on Optus and it was great - no ads there, no ads during the movies and you didn't have to pay any extra money, above the basic package, to get access to the decent channels and movies. Now it's just a big rip off and full of advertising just like TV. Waste of money, imo.

Unfortunately the ads are there to keep the prices down

That's my point though, Happy, they don't. It's more expensive than it ever was!
