You get bored and leave early?


A lot of Yorkshiremen believe that when God created the world, he made it with perfect balance.
He balanced the hot areas with the cold areas. the dry areas with the wet areas.
And, in creating Yorkshire, he created the most glorious place on earth - full of majestic beauty and sporting giants.........and for balance he created....... Lancashire.

On this form it's just a shame that Dewsbury didn't reach the Championship play-offs - they'd obviously have won it easily if they had.
Believe what you see, don't see what you believe.

How predictable from Barrow's number one mental case.

We're a charitible bunch in Widnes and thought we'd give Barrow their confidence back, which we did with some style. Oh and Rooney did play.

Talking of dreaming, if you think that stadiums ever getting anywhere near SL you're living in a dreamworld. It makes Wakey look like Old Trafford.

Barrow were good today. Started like they looked low on confidence though. As soon as Widnes' ineptitude gave them a couple of tries they were off and we probably did well to keep them to 38 in the end. I got the feeling had we scored first Barrow's heads might have dropped but we wouldn't have scored in 2 games today.

Disappointed but hey thanks to licensing it's not the end of the world, in fact it doesn't matter much at all! Thanks RFL for taking the highs and the lows out the game!

Judging by what I've been reading on the web our defeat seems to be causing far more concern to fans of other clubs than it does to Widnes fans.



Just because you think everyone hates you doesn't mean they don't.

As a Barrow fan, of course I'm glad that we won today.
I just can't stand all the gloating that sometimes go on on this board.
Widnes will go on to better things soon and I for one will be hoping that they do do well.
The Championship is a tough competition with good teams and some great supporters.
Over the years I have been privileged to have enjoyed some great games at places like Widnes, Fev, Batley etc. Sheffield is one of the best places for making one feel welcome. I usually sit in the stands and ALWAYS enjoy some good natured banter.
We as RL fans are often accused of having a chip on our shoulders over our belief that everyone hates us. (Well I think they do too!)
Why then do we have to so antagonistic to each other on here? When we meet face to face, invariably we get on like a house on fire.
It's often said that no one likes a bad loser-well being a bad winner is even worse ( for God's sake we don't want to act like Australians).

Remember Kipling's wise words:-
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster,And treat those two impostors just the same;
Hold on to that - Good years are to be embraced, 'cos as sure as eggs is eggs they will be followed by years to be endured. Celebrate your wins but just spare a thought for those that are disappointed, it will be your turn next.

Here in full the words from Kipling's poem
"IF"
IF you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise:
If you can dream - and not make dreams your master;
If you can think - and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools:

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: 'Hold on!'

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
' Or walk with Kings - nor lose the common touch,
if neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a Man, my son!

Bears and Barrow

Appreciate the sentiment and agree with it actually 99% of the time, but not v Widnes.

I do not have a problem with them going up , they have played this "system" very well indeed, its the "system" thats flawed not the winning bidder etc

I could see Widnes playing the system again next season, I would do it myself given the chance, Widnes could field an even weaker team next term by playing lots more kids in accelerating their progress so to speak, getting them battled hardened and more experience, it will make Red Hall look like even bigger bafoons then they are, if Widnes choose this route and save the money for the real business in 2012

Red hall could well promote a bottom 4 side into SL ohmy.gif ohmy.gif

No its the Widnes supporters arrogance, hoiler than thou, we are bigger n better then you lot attitute to the Championship that winds up many other clubs fans, Not Widnes RL the club.

It winds me up when someone 3000 miles away and doesn't even go to the games calls people who do go and spend their hard earned money to do so. I spent 40 to watch my team play garbage. 40 that I could have spent elsewhere but I went and would do the same next week (if we had a game). wink.gif

Widnes fans think we have got the best application for SL. Most other clubs fans think this though may not say it. If that means we think we are bigger and better than you well thats only because we are wink.gif wink.gif .

By the way Mick from someone who went to the game today Barrow were by far the better team today in every department and fully deserved their win, we were lucky to get nought today (we didn't even get that on the scoreboard) and the 38 flattered us.

Unbiased view, appreciate it, just because i can not attend games does not mean that i dont support my club financially.

It's only perceived arrogance that comes from your own jealousy. Widnes are clearly the best positioned Championship club to come up to Super League, that's not arrogance but fact. Fans of other Championship clubs try to make out like this isn't the case and Widnes fans point out where they are wrong.

You're the perfect example, you spent months trying to appear genuine yet all the time trying to undermine Widnes' position by spreading lies about the club even though they were proven wrong. When it became obvious that Widnes were in a much better position than your own club you totally lost the plot, as evidenced by your original post here. You're jealous of Widnes' position and that's the real reason you hate us.
