Fair point. I guess it's about balancing the income & an even competition, not sure how we can get there

Another idea I've heard is the three week thing. Wednesday / Wednesday / Wednesday. On the two weekends in between play other rep matches - city/country, 9's, residents, Pacific islanders , png, NZ. Hell bring out Great Britain to play a tri-series with NZ and pac islanders or PNG.
Whole thing done in three weeks. Sucks for injuries or suspensions but better for clubs. I believe overseas (soccer? and Union ?) they can and do suspend competitions and do tours all in one hit. Lions tour is maybe what I am thinking of?

Any talk of reducing the concept is crazy. Worth too much money.

Absolutely not! That quote I often bring up when I want to deliberately vaguebook.
Gina Riley: Oh, come on, John. That’s a bit old hat, the corrupt IOC delegate.
John Clarke: Old hat? Gina, in the scientific world when they see that something is happening again and again and again, repeatedly, they don’t call it old hat. They call it a pattern.

State of Origin isn't the problem, it is everything around it

If it ain't broke, don't fix it. That motto of former ARL chairman Ken Arthurson during the Super League war was echoed by his modern-day counterpart John Grant in response to increasing louder calls for changes to State of Origin scheduling.

I agree with the first proposition in the story, but most of it is complete rubbish.
