Patrick Collins on the Castleford homophobic issue.

"Many sporting bodies would have procrastinated. But the RFL took an unflinching decision"

"Yet again, rugby league shows it has the most enlightened administration in British sport."

Two posts deleted, one from a troll, the other from someone who replied to the troll.

Arguing with the forum trolls is like playing chess with a pigeon.  No matter how good you are, the bird will **** on the board and strut around like it won anyway

it has always surprised me that the mail has never given more coverage to league than it does, richard bott the mails league corespondant is an avid saints fan who has followed the game since his primary school days.
"Why is Napoleon crying ?" said one sailor to the other, "poor ###### thinks he's being exiled to st helens" came the reply.

The coverage in the Daily Mail is fairly decent compared to other national newspapers. Not sure how much coverage is given in the southern editions though.
