    Just why should the duration of a match be reduced?
    I'm all for innovation in a sport, but I look forward to seeing some reasoned logic behind such a suggestion.

    There are plenty of things that could be improved in the game before you need to start tinkering with the length of the game.

    Yeah that's a big call.
    I can't see why the length of the game should be changed.
    Only gripe I have is when Channel 10 has the TV rights and uses the 5 minute clock. Hate that thing soooo much.
    The difference between insanity and genius is measured only in success.

    The last time the trialled this the names were too small to be read anyway, so it was a waste of time.

    I'm all for trialling things but I think the large, clear numbers are fairly easy to read now.

    One of the joys of the first few rounds is trying to remember all the numbers, and the new blokes. I only ever ask my 10yo sidekick in absolute emergencies
