Help the Magpies get back on the Tele

The 1996 Magpies are in the running to be shown on Fox Sports this Tuesday.

The match that garners the biggest vote will go to air the following night, Chooseday Night.

It sounds simple because it is.

This week, the theme is Week One Finals.

This week's most popular game will go to air on Tuesday September 4 at 10pm (EST) on Fox Sports 2HD and Fox Sports 2.

The Games:

3rd Qualifying Final, 1995 Bulldogs v Dragons: Both clubs overcame numerous off-field dramas to reach the finals. Three players were sin binned during a physical and tense clash that was still up for grabs when an 80th minute bomb was launched.

1st Qualifying Final, 1996 Sharks v Magpies: Wests snuck into the top 8 after Cronulla beat Newcastle in the final round of the regular season. However, the Sharks were now the enemy of the underdogs in this gripping battle of survival.

4th Qualifying Final, 2006 Knights v Sea Eagles: A controversial round 23 match raised the stakes for this finals encounter. Could former Newcastle hero Ben Kennedy inspire Manly and end the season of his old team-mates?

So come on and vote for the Magpies here...
