so many discussions and so many varied points, the one thing most of us have in common seems to be a love for RL and a feeling of frustration that the RFL are neither transparent nor held accountable for their usual bumbling.

 

Is there any way a fans committee can be founded to represent the RL's majority stakeholders?

 

If so, what would it look like?

Most likely overweight and dressed in tacky replica shirts.

I suggest The Parksider as chair, a handful of the ten-a-penny Featherstone fans, Lobby, Dave T and Padge. With GJ snarking from the sidelines.

I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.

I think that is some kind of meta-post. To be able to be make a snide remark, about snide remarks, is quite something!

or maybe it just needs one more that has the right people on it and does its job. One that actually represents the biggest body of the game?

There would need to be a couple of sub comittees, with annual P&R between them (standards based, with criteria such as personal hygene)

I'd like Frank to be involved in someway.  Maybe just to comment on the quality of the bogs, and how rough the paper is.

I suggest this is another example of your 10,232 moronoic posts.

Perhaps at some time you will grow up and enter the forum on the basis of what its there for.

An exchange of news, views and debate.

But on the debate issue your incapable, so you turn to childish snipes.
