Monday NIght Back Up Factor

Post by Bazzinator » Sun 16 Aug, 2015 8:00 pm

Obviously we were poor yesterday but i know that in the past it has been brought up the back up factor from the Monday Night coupled with the travel can take it out of the young players in particular.Young players have just started to finish their first full season and the fatigue of the year will be taking their tolls on the bodies. I'm not sure on the stats this year but i know in the past teams backing up on the five day turn around from Monday to Saturday teams really struggle. This would have been a contributing factor to the boys being flat.

It just reinforces the advantage that Brisbane have with 90% of their games every Friday night. Sure they travel but it has to be a huge advantage to have a consistent 7 day turnaround.

players always say they hate playing on monday because they don't get a chance to relax on the weekends and have to stay focused on the games and the plans put in place. once monday is gone i think everyone will be happier

At least we play a team that plays Monday night this week in Cronulla. Maybe that will help , maybe it won't. TBH I think it's an excuse.

I'd like to know what are they doing the 4 days in between Monday and Saturday. It takes longer than 4 days to get over a game that lasts 80 minutes? For the money the earn, I'd be embarrassed to use fatigue as an excuse.

Look at the blokes who put their bodies through hard yakka 8-10 hours a day and only get 2 days off maximum. The plumbers who have to hand dig ditches, the brickies, renderers, chippies, gyprockers and roof tilers for example. All physically demanding jobs, they do it 8-10 hours a day 5-6 days a week for years and years and never use the excuse they cant come to work cause they're tired.

I hate the fatigue excuse and I hate when players whinge that the season is too long. For the amount of money they make, they should be playing 10 months of the year.

i think it's more mental fatigue than physical. players wouldn't mind a sunday to friday turnaround because sunday night still feels like a weekend. a monday to saturday turnaround ruins their cycle, ruins the body clock, stuffs up the rehab and conditioning.

just look at cowboys, they got a brand new S&C which changed their scheduling and it's done wonders from them.

i doubt players think of it as an excuse honestly, it's a subconscious thing.

Chris, they do play almost 9 months- i think all players would agree that they'd rather play an extra 4 weeks than do 4 weeks of pre-season :lol:

And an easy one to pull out at that. To be a great team these are exactly the hurdles that must be overcome.

Let's see how the Sharks back up...

Plumbers, chippies etc. are irrelevant. The point is they're competing against fellow professional athletes that have all these advantages as well - PLUS an extra day of recovery & preparation.
