    We're playing for a spot in the round of 32 right now - wanting to avoid the playoff against the Mariners, but I take your point.

    Further to it, if we take first past the post, why are Wellington here?

    Other than postponing it, there's no right answer here. Sydney and Melbourne are probably the easiest to arrange.

    I could only suggest moving it to a reasonable sized regional town. It could give their most-likely vacant hotels and local businesses some income they otherwise wouldn't be getting. A place that had maybe 3 decent pitches.

    Don't know where that would be, just thinking outside the box

    If we get based to play in Sydney do we become the north north Sydney jets? I mean there will be the North Sydney gypos and the north north North Sydney roar so why not...Nix will be the East Sydney nix..and still have as many fans as teams from that area get to games anyway

    From the jets website:

    The boys will head to the Gold Coast to take on Brisbane Roar this Friday 20 March from 7.30pm (AEDT), in place of the Round 27 fixture between the two sides which has been brought forward.

    Then, itís a quick turnaround as we return back to Newcastle and to McDonald Jones Stadium to take on Melbourne City on Monday 23 March

    These dumb ****s at the FFA know that we have the longest off season in history don't they??

    What the **** is wrong with just calling shot off for a month right now and then seeing how things are just like every other League on the planet has done??

    What is the idea with shooting ourselves in the foot by playing behind closed doors now for the sake of it??

    Does it matter if the season finishes a month or two later than planned where fans can watch the games ??

    ****ing Idiots

    The way things are going in Europe, football is irrelevant.
    Euro 2020 has been postponed to 2021, and (my opinion) it's very unlikely that European leagues will restart this season. 20/21 if they're lucky.
    So, based on the European experience, I think FFA is trying to finish this season in the shortest time possible, before shit hits the fan (and it will).
    I'll be watching the games, but honestly football is not high in my priorities right now.

    Totally agree, we need to suspend our competition immediately. Coming from a health professional we all need to be smarter and stay away from eachother. This is going to get far far worse than any of us realise. Buckle up ladies and gents, this shits real

    My reputation (that colour bar on the left) on this website is as bad as Stanny's, yet I (a) support the Jets and (b) regularly offer useful advice to the team.

    This reflects poorly all of you.
