I am not bitter about who gets the Golden Boot, I am concerned that an award that once had credibility and helped build the foundations of this game is now owned by a magazine and is selected on some sort of bias.


For goodness sake. If you understood anything about the history of the Golden Boot, you would know it has always been owned and awarded by an English magazine. It was created by Open Rugby Magazine in 1984. The magazine changed its name to Rugby League World in 1999.

The accusation of English bias is laughable given that of the 22 awards made since 1984, 15 have been to Australian players, 3 to New Zealand players and only 4 to British/English players.

Congratulations on ruining your own thread about sponsorship by dragging it off topic not just once, but twice.

Locked.

(Before anyone squeals censorship, there's a thread still open on here about the Golden Boot. It doesn't need another).
