Now, n saying this I'm assuming that we'd have veto on the Kick Off time for the JPT (on the basis that the gate receipts are shared an it is therefore effectively a joint venture).

If this is the case, why the hell did we agree to the 7.15 KO time?

There will be reduced Exeter Support (and less gate receipts for us)

The fans that do make it from Exeter will be up against the clock it to make it to the game in tme

And all this, so that a few junior gas can get into the game and for free (and boost the BR support)!!!

I think we've been conned!!!

For the life of me i've still no idea why we agreed to a 7.15 k.o? As you said it would have benefited them in many ways but disadvantaged us by making it harder for our fans to get there. All this to get more kids in who aren't paying a bean anyway!

The early kick off are common place in this competition. With no extra time it encourages fans to go as they'll get home at a more reasonable time.

The Memorial is a long way from Temple Meads, so I 4-1 am grateful for the early kickoff as getting the last train to Reading/London would be impossible with penalties following a 7.45 ko.

That's all very well if your'e local and able to get away from work early! Given most coaches leave Exeter around 4pm that makes it harder to get there in the first place!
