    Whole Cowboys team to ditch the Dally M awards night

    Can't see the Nrl being very happy this week. All Queensland grand final and now Thurston will miss collecting his 4th Dally M award. I think this one meant more to the nrl as Malcom Turnbull snubbed the Brownlow medal to be there to present the award.

    Wonder how this will all play out.

    Have to think they will cop a fine of some sort for it. That is crazy but it does make sense.

    Has the Dally M winner ever missed the awards previously so his Grand Final preparations wouldn't be disrupted?

    Surely I'm a shoe in for prop of the year.

    Maybe the League needs to look at why they hold it in GF week. Whilst holding it another week earlier or even after makes sense it won't happen.

    I'm just guessing but maybe they don't hold it a week later is because then you could argue that it could be diminishing the winning GF team if they don't have any stand out individual players. Becomes less about their team's achievements in winning as media/public attention then shifts on to the awards winners and doesn't give the winning team as long to bask in their achievements.

    Can't see any reason why they can't do it a week early. I can understand the Cowboys position but I kind of think they are just being overly dramatic and deal with it but they are in their rights to do so. The Dally M's have been before the GF in the past so I can't see how there would be a problem with it being the week before preliminary finals. If you're team has made it to the top 4 then surely a loss wouldn't do much to impact voting for team of the year positions so that excuse wouldn't fly.

    I totally see why the Cowboys are skipping it but I wonder if any of the Broncos will be attending. Surely CP13, Ben Hunt, Milf and Macca would have invites.

    I'm with Beast. A week earlier and the same shit would happen, having it the week after makes more sense. If players choose not to attend because of mad monday commitments then suspend them for the first week of next season.

    I thought the whole reason it was this week was to create a Grand Final week like the AFL have where there's more build up.

    If thats the case then maybe theres an argument for holding it later in the week. That way visiting teams only have to travel a day ealry or even the same day as they would be anyway.

    Yeah that's true. Is there any reason why they can't do it on the Friday night? Surely most visiting teams would have already travelled to Sydney by then.

    According to this http://www.sportsnews.com.au/nrl/nrl-okay-with-thurston-no-show/157987 The Cowboys will be attending via videolink and it claims that the NRL are happy with it. OH well we'll see if the NRL are really happy with it or not later in the week Laughing

    You might get the same response from clubs. Distract from GF prep. Especially closer to the big day. I say either do it in the week before prelim finals, or do it at least week after the GF so not to take anything away from the winning team and you give them their big moment in the sun. This year is a perfect example of why doing it a few days after the GF wouldn't work. Say the Broncos win and everyone toasts them and celebrates their achievements, but then only a few days later they hold the dally m's. JT wins as expected and I guarantee you media/fans shift immediately off the broncos and on to the JT vs Johns debate and where JT fits in the rankings of greatest ever halves.

    You can't hold the Dally M's on a Friday night. Broncos play on a Friday night.

    It's going to be embarrassing for the NRL for the Dally M winner not to be there. Makes the event look second rate.
