Because the same fans shouting for thursday games to end and get more on a sunday, now dont turn up to the sunday games and moan they are on sunday 😂
I know you're having a dig at medlocke but the Thursday game was and is a disaster for the sport. Supposedly played on Thursday's to give football Friday nights (as a Friday/Sat/Sun/Mon footballing gimmick) then SKY decide to have football on every night

Result: RL walk-up numbers to matches drop and fans hate the fixture due to work/school etc the next day and having to travel over probably one of the worst motorway networks in the UK - the M62 during work rush hour

Sundays would be fine if season tickets are sold on the basis home games would be played then.

Some on Friday, best fixtures played on Thursday and a smattering on Sunday for some reason (usually football) and no wonder fans complain that the basis they bought season tickets is being ruined by fixture chaos and a ridiculous allowance to never play a home fixture every summer (cramming them in during the early Spring and last month or so of the Summer)
I wasnt having a dig at anyone, one of the fan surveys was on match days, alot of the votes where for sunday games.

Every sunday game i have been to has been poorly attended.
RL's biggest issue is the constant negativity of its own fans.

Football doesn’t seem to do bad on Sunday’s.

Well that suggests the survey was flawed rather than fans have no idea which day they prefer home games to be played on
I'm a better fan than you
Because I don't "Boo"!!!

We never lose any games
We just don't win them (always the refs fault anyway)

Must admit I'm not a fan of Sunday games, they don't seem to raise much interest it seems to me even when Wigan try and put a bit extra on..as for the stupidity of the KR fixtures it is mind boggling really.

Thirty years ago i would have said Sundays. However, now that I have got used to Friday nights and have other things to do at weekends I would say stick to Fridays. My one ask would be to move back to 8pm kick offs.

Thursday fixtures are a disaster. I think part of the reason for the drop off in attendances is that people get out of the habit of going to a match every other week. The annual mid season break for the pitch to be resurfaced also contributes to this.

Wigan’s fixture list only shows two more Sunday games, one Saturday game and the rest Friday night. Home and away.

What’s the fuss about ?
