With JT off contract that is probably not the first 6 weeks he was looking for.

Very tough start.

That's a fair chunk of free to air games. I seem to recall an article a few years ago, we rate pretty high with viewers on FTA, top 4 or something?

That's bordering on unfair for all the other clubs.

The big wigs at concord must be VERY happy today
Brisbane will likely have 24 games on FTA, all on Friday night. That's unfair.

Might be good for the club though to determine whether JT is the man to take us forward past 2017 or not though...

We'll figure out very quickly where we stand by round 6.

Maybe its just me , but our record on FTA's games doesn't seem real good , especially since 2011

RLW hit the nail on the head re Brisbane and its scheduling... Nothing 'Fair' about it. Its purely Business and while Channel Nine are paying the bills, they are entitled to a say who they want to broadcast.

Great to see the Tigers with so many FTA games... We must also be ticking those rating boxes. Thats a result of all you guys tuning in. Well Done!

-Plenty of FTA games
-No five-day turnarounds
-Three nine-day turnarounds
-No Friday 6pm games
-Seven Sunday afternoon games - the most out of all of the clubs
-Two byes during origin period - only one game without origin stars vs Sharks who will have some key players missing too
-We play the top four teams from 2016 only six times - three in the first six rounds
-Fairly easy run home

Seems like a win

Yeah fox coverage is far superior these days. No ads during play and no Rabs or Gus

It will take more than finally showing it in HD to get me to stop watching the games on Foxtel, even though I despise Murdoch.

Have Origin series dates been announced? That plays a massive importance,since we'll likely be without Woods and Tedesco. Praying for a Storm or Broncos clash in that part of the season.

play like the seasons on the line, because it will likely be decided in the first 8 weeks. we cant afford to be anything less than 3-5 which isnt easy:

Rabbitohs, Panthers, Raiders, Storm, Dragons, Cowboys, Eels, Bulldogs

we can beat souths, dragons and then maybe 1 of the other teams.

i think we play brisbane during origin again though so thats nice
I reckon we can beat all of those teams. We should beat souths, dragons, eels & bulldogs. Panthers at Campbelltown & Storm at Leichhardt too. Would be happy with at least 4-4

Agree that the first couple of months are crucial. Our start this year killed us. 2-8 after 10 rounds... :/
eels and storm?? doubtful unless they drop off from last year (ignoring eels' points strip and decimation by injury)

If Maloney gets injured, what are the chances of Moses getting the call up for origin?
I will support Wests Tigers through thick or thin
I will be cheering when they win
I will love the Tigers Till I Die
With loyal supporters we will fly
I love the Tigers with my heart and soul
I just love the club as a whole
If the Wests Tigers believe
We will Unite, Commit and Achieve

I meant that playing storm at Leichhardt gives us a better chance than playing them in Melbourne

And yeah reckon Eels will be worse off next year without Foran, Gordon, Paulo (I know he left mid season but played when they beat us), possibly Semi
