Today's Rugby League players are quicker, fitter, and yes, BETTER, than when Keith and I were cutting our teeth on the terraces at Station Road!
Shirts without sponsors' logo(s) on? Nooooooooooooo way, they're far smarter with 'em on!
..."are quicker, fitter, and yes, BETTER..."
In my view this should say ..."are quicker, fitter but NOT BETTER - and that's for sure!
..."they're far smarter with 'em on!"
Come off it, how can a playing strip with sponsorship POLLUTION all over it be smarter? Quite the reverse surely must be true. How can anyone really honestly say teams look smarter these days than when players strutted their stuff in ultra smart jerseys bearing only a classy club badge and a number on the back? If that's the case, then you seriously need to go to Specsavers - and pretty damned quick!
Today's sponsored strips are sadly lacking in the dignity they once possessed, or is that a word (“dignity”) of little or no importance to some of you out there?
