As much as I dislike the night-before teams it seems that there are less late changes. Is that right?

There are less, but they are still there.

The only thing that has changed now is that teams aren't naming players on a Thursday that they know realistically won't be fit by gaming day. That used to happen all the time. Blanket Thursday teams should return immediately. I'm sure it is impacting on numbers of SC and fantasy players. I would also be interested to know what the broadcast partner has to say about it. Prior to the most recent TV deal a few years ago, teams used to drop at about 5pm on a Thursday. When the new TV deal was signed, that was changed to 6.20pm because they wanted exclusivity to release teams during sports segment. Not sure the drip feeding over 3 days would be getting the same bang for buck as having them all out in one go.
