Speaking of numeracy skills, how does 11 'til 8 equate to 9 'til 5?  Is the extra hour to allow time for a mid-afternoon siesta?

Longer games would be good though - they always seem to end just when I'm getting my teeth in.

>Great point about not using all the resources (day light) at our disposal however I personally feel that instead of using the extra light for a later start (although I hate them early starts are part and parcel of ultimate life) we would be better placed to use it to have longer games.

>1 hour slots with 45/50 min games is, in my opinion, not only to short from a pitch time perspective but it is hardly great preparation for European and World events where the games are substantially longer.

>Longer games give teams more time to assess (and more importantly adjust to) each other, allows for bigger come backs and in my opinion fairer games. Shorter games put to much emphasis on a strong start and do not allow enough time for those huge and often exciting comebacks. Being able to adjust to a certain offence or defence are higher level skills that we should be encouraging at all levels of the sport.
