36. I’m a fan of Thursday Night and Monday Night football, the more nights there is footy the better, but imagine the crowds if there was an extra afternoon game each weekend.

37. If a player feels the need to come out and declare they’re available and ready for Origin, they’re probably not. Real Origin-ready players show it on the field.

38. The NRL probably got the Mitchell Pearce suspension right. His performances on and his efforts off the field have been very positive since. Perhaps slaps on the wrist penalties don’t work after all. Six weeks on the sideline is a fair wake up call.

39. I understand why the NRL schedules games so far ahead, but this week the Sharks/Cowboys clash will be played on Monday Night, while the Tigers occupy a Friday Night time slot. Let that sink in.

40. Despite their supposed history on the field, I hate seeing any player’s injury be ‘celebrated’ on social media. I’d love to see those players you love to hate smashed in a big tackle, or bomb a try as much as the next fan, but injury messed with their livelihood.
