I like the format of Back Chat but as a few posters have stated,does Stevo need to be on every week.He just tends to shout everyone else down.

God bless the keyboard warrior.

Right, within the first few minutes by point can be made.

Question 1 about Huddersfield and their performances and if they can keep it up.

Martyn opens talking about the big test this Friday, mentions how well they played against Hull FC and moves on to "not having the Nathan Brown factor" and stability with Anderson.

It's then passed on to Stevo, who says, "The Nathan Brown thing has obviously affected them over the past two seasons., without a doubt"

Then Studd interrupts him with "It couldn't all be Nathan Brown's fault could it" with a slight head throw of derison.

After one sentence he jumps down Stevo's throat.

If you use "should of", "would of" or "could of", you are a moron.

Wish the show was an hour long it feels like they're cramming stuff in but its a brilliant show. Stevo is tolerable at times but then other times you just want to shout at him. I really like Rod Studd on the show, his opinions come across as he's trying to wind people up but then he begins to back his points up really well.

May send an email to Sky asking them to make the show 45 minutes or an hour long as there isn't really anything else on at the times the program is shown at, plus I can't imagine it would cost much different to broadcast it just that little bit longer.

Bit of a pointless first half footnote on Roby, I agree that's where the half hour slot let it down.

And while they're talking of playing against parent clubs, Paul Sykes played against Bradford last season while on loan, so whether that was an exception to the rule.

If you use "should of", "would of" or "could of", you are a moron.

Love the show but could do with the same airtime as its counterports Cricket Writers on TV and Jimmy Hills Sunday Suppliment.

Because the show is condensed into 23-24 minutes instead of reasoned debate you get shouted sioundbites and Mr Sadler your measured tones appeared to be causing consternation in Rodd Studd causing his machine gun delivery to be even more rapid fire than usual. That';s what happens when you try to put the proverbial "quart in a pint pot" and some topics which were crying out for a longer and more sober analysis such as Castleford did not get the considered debate the subject warrants.

Rather Super League Backchat be on for an Hour than a continuation of the banal Boots n' all. that offers us Baz and Tez chasing Rob Burrow in a wendy house surely the nadir of Rugby League broadcasting. :rolleyes:

Come to think of it it might be an idea for LPL or some other enterpreneur to run Super League Backchat live as a live interactive theatre presentation during the off season. Personally I would buy a ticket and venture to the bleak northern wastelands for an evening of Rugby League debate if this was ever put on.

And if you could get the show extended to the full hour you might also get the croissants and orange juice that Steven Brenkley of The Independent always seems to enjoy tucking into during CWOT.

So there we have it extend the programme to an hour SKY and have Angela Powers as the presenter not Rodd Studd.

Being an outsider, it is easiest to see what is wrong with the sport. It's a fantastic sport that has been undersold and under-marketed  because people who run it probably want to keep it the way it is

Agreed. Back Chat for an hour yes. Angela Powers no. One of the dullest, most wooden presenters on TV. I genuinely think if it wasn't the fact she was a woman she would get nowhere near RL on Sky!

I'm watching yesterday's episode now and I'm really enjoying it with super Bill Arthur and Barrie McDermott; it isn't just a breath of fresh air, it's a hurricane of Febreze.

Here's my tuppence -
I missed Stevo this week and whilst he obviously winds plenty up, for me it's not the same without him.
The show definately needs more time, why not an hour and would maybe benefit from a section debating some viewer/fan questions.
Also what about a current SL chairperson or coach making the numbers up?

That's why he's there - "simple as that"
