Is the NRL having a laugh?
Why have they scheduled free-to-air games for the Bulldogs?!
I know that stuff gets done ahead of time but it isn’t hard to guess that this year was never going to be a great one for the Bulldogs. I don’t hold much hope for 2019 or 2020 either. Yet the Bulldogs have been on Ch9 on almost every weekend.
I think preference should be given to the stronger teams when it comes to the free-to-air games. Teams shouldn’t miss out completely but you want to watch the best teams battle each other as often as possible.
So maybe ease back on the doggies games for the next couple of years, hey NRL? Then smash them when the mighty doggies return to being mighty.
