I don't suffer from nitpicking other then from you. To avoid personal arguments the moderator says people should agree to disagree, but you even manage to argue with that now.

He HAS said that but as you never accept anything at all I suppose this is another stupid circle we can go round....


You are the one trying to make it personal. I'm just disagreeing with falsehoods spread about the game of rugby league. If you say something that isn't true then you can expect "nitpicking". Check your facts before posting and avoid this.

Not now there isn't, there looked like there might be at one time.

Your problem is that you argue on the basis of what Keighley is today not on what they were in the early 90s.


What were they then?

A club with no money, few fans and no great local junipr scene.

I was actually there.

Again you spouting rubbish to provoke. Agree to disagree

It's not football.

Academies in SL areas produce the most young talent in the game locally.

I've done my research, your just poking me with a stick with any old rubbish.

SL clubs have to engage locally with the junior game if they didn't we'd have less players......


They do but they also need to engaged with emerging talent from around the country. The fact is that M62-land has plenty of towns not represented in SL, we also have heartland areas in places like West Cumbria that aren't even in M62 land and there is an emerging supply of players from outside the heartlands. The successful SL are ones who are signing agreements with clubs outside their local area.

They certainly didn't have few fans. The terraces were full.

There never looked like their ever being any money in Keighley. Do your research, they went badly bust.

1. They DO????????? Hurrah I win :lol:

2. I never ever said clubs did not have to do that that's not the point in question.

I posted about Wigan and Widnes reaching out to Wales only yesterday. Do your research.

2. Why do you need to talk rubbish? Bored in Turin.

Try to stop this "You do this" "you do that" rubbish. it makes the debate personal.

Try to stop this now the thread is about Oldham.

Agree to disagree

Rubbish is that Keighley had no fans. They most certainly did.

I was on them. the terraces were only full for the odd game and the terraces were small.

In relation to what you need for Superleague they had too few fans.

Did I say "few" instead of "too few" Of dear me my bad.

Now what is the ppint of this particular exchange other than you waste some time in Turin poking me with a stick??

Yeah but you also post that the two Hull sides need to merge because there aren't enough youth players in Hull to support two sides. Both Hull sides have signed youth players from Scotland. They don't need to restrict themselves to the Hull area.

18 pointless posts were heading for a record and not advancing the debate, which should be about Oldham, one iota.

Agree to disagree Solly, surely you get the point now???

The average attendance at Cougar Park was higher than the SL average. That's hardly too few. It was twice what Broncos get now and more than Crusaders.

Nope wrong.

Your now making it up.

I said two SL clubs in Hull isn't working.

£500K a year loses at HKR losses at Hull.

I do research, you make stuff up and pin it on me.

I win again because I'm concentrating on facts not having a spat :lol:

I'll just copy / paste this for the next Hull thread then. "Parky says that juniors aren't a merger issue in Hull".

So they havent lost their £700k then. Lovely stuff.

(Yet) ;)


If were looking for monetary losses of great magnitude we will find tens of millions completely wasted by M62 clubs who have taken such money from SKY and squandered the lot failing in Superleague. Now that's a scandal.

£700K was small beer compared.

The RFL were right to take Samuels money, Moss and Roberts money and put in themselves to keep Wales going in SL.

It's sad that the game could not find enough money (maybe more should have gone to Wales from the SKY pot) to keep a Welsh SL club going, but there is a legacy.

More kids started playing, some signed on at SL clubs and still will do. two championship clubs have emerged and hopefully their juniors under the guidance of Wigan (and Widnes) will keep the pot boiling.

The idea take in isolation that the RFL just "wasted" £700K is simplistic biased nonsense....
