Thoughts on 2:20 start time for 36ers games

Seemed like a good crowd for the 2.20 start. Made for good day ball with lightning following and then free evening. Like to see more.

it clashes with both childrens and adults sports , those of us who play sports or have kids that do its a big chunk of the season we miss which was not advised prior to purchasing season tickets

Fox and 9 dictate when games are on. Clearly they dont want to show NBL on Saturday night so the NBL dont fixture as many games that time anymore. Big shame because NBL is best when its played on saturday night IMO.

Season ticket holders who had prior Saturday sporting commitments recorded it and watched it when they got home. You know, at the time they want to watch NBL.

How many of those will decide it's actually pretty good watching it from the armchair, skipping the breaks and being able to pause and replay what's happening? How many will decide, maybe it's not worth a season ticket next year, just go to a few evening games and watch the others on time delay?

Hate Sat arvo. Love sat night. Can put up with sun arvo. There is approx 4-5 sat arvo games for 36ers this season. We do know NBL basketball is played during the summer don't we, so lets's put the game on during the hottest part of the day. I bet the spectators won't be loving it in December, January and February when it's 30 odd degrees. I bet that was never discussed by the tv execs.

Didn't expect to but I’ve actually loved heading to Sat arvo games. Easier with kids, still have an evening too. Works for footy codes, why not for basketball?

I'm not all that fussed about timing.
From a scheduling point of view it makes sense to have a lot of Sunday games of course since it means those teams can play twice per round.
