According to Foxsports, there is a distinct possibility that there could be lockouts from round two . If we are locked out, what happens about memberships?

It will depend. If it a government called lock out, there should be a refund. I had two tickets to today's Grand Prix and because the government said nobody could attended the Premier said there would be full refunds. I got an email saying they are working on refunds.

If it is Melbourne Storm or NRL who calls for the lock out who knows. Maybe will get the games credited to next years membership.

We got government evacuated from our holidays due to bush fires and we got a refund for the two nights.

But who really knows at this stage

Suggestions that the NRL may attempt to base the Warriors out of Sydney and play games behind closed doors but it doesn’t sound sustainable.

Well, with the game shut down indefinitely, I wonder what the true financial implications for the club are and whether it puts at risk our survival (in current form).

I think the NRL would always have to have a Melbourne team - it would pay for itself and then some in TV rights money... but whether the current issues gut the club and envious culture, is a different question.

So far, I haven't seen anything anywhere which have included our club as being at risk. They have focused on clubs like the Titans, Manly or the Warriors. Others have talked of Sydney clubs being in trouble due to their main income stream coming from Leagues clubs. Teams like Canterbury or Cronulla being the main possibilities.

Story in today's Telegraph about the older NRL we not see play again if the season does not resume with crowds. One is Cam, I did not think of this. I will be so upset if I don't get to see him play again.

No exemption for us to train anywhere in Victoria whilst the state of emergency remains in effect. We will be based in Albury for the next week to train (assuming NSW Gov grant approval). See what happens in a weeks time...

I know there is more important things in the world at the moment. But why in the last two months has no one mentioned what is happening with club memberships. It seems to me this has all but been forgotten.

Tough draw IMO but I'm confident we can still do well.

Sea Eagles twice.
Roosters twice.
Rabbitohs twice.
Knights twice.
Raiders twice.

The only really good thing about the draw is the fact the Storm get a heap of FTA games.

In fact, only Brisbane has more FTA time slots this year.
