I don't get all this get them out because they've been hammered business. If Widnes London etc dont improve they will be relegated anyway in the 2015 season. So let them get on with it in the meantime and we will see as they have 2seasons to get their houses in order like the rest who are lingering at the foot of the table.

I think that's the point IM2 is making - nobody is calling for Widnes to be jettisoned from the comp despite a similarly one-sided scoreline to London's last weekend.

The thing being that it was a one-off. How many times have London been hammered this season?

Widnes Vikings 23 7 2 14 581 767 16

 

London Broncos 23 3 2 18 411 850 8

 

And that's before we bring up attendances.

 

Widnes are an improved side on last year, can you say the same of London?

He is anti London through and through and has now reverted to attendances to try and justify his argument here.

 

I normally have him on ignore but couldnt resist this.

 

Best I leave it at that.

Widnes have won 7 games, London only 3.

 

Widnes have scored 581 points and London only 411.

 

Widnes have conceeded 767 points and London 850.

 

Widnes are 11th and London are 14th.

 

I didn't need to bring up attendances.

 

Can you name a single stat that has London ahead of Widnes?

Widnes are 11th. If they finish 11th in 2015 then they'll make the cut for SL:

Ive never said or would dream to say we have done better than Widnes this season but you were clearly wrong 

when it came to the hammerings dished out, I have no axe to grind with Widnes or there fans.

But clearly you had to revert to attendances to try and re justify a post.

 

So off you go back to ignore.

Remind me when Widnes got a hammering like that.

 

82 -10.

Good Grief,

72 - 10 is 10 points different from 82 -10.

 

Both are dreadful scores.

 

But they are not equally dreadful.

Rugby league is its own worst enemy far too often with far too many people willing to only ever see the negatives.

Arguing with the forum trolls is like playing chess with a pigeon.  No matter how good you are, the bird will **** on the board and strut around like it won anyway

Remind me which year they earned that promotion.

 

You know that I'm talking about this season.

 

Widnes have had a reasonably good season. London have had a dreadful one both on and off-field. They have nothing going for them aside from their Academy (who are doing well).

What's that got to do with this year?

 

Actually we're not mind readers (except that we can conclude you are likely to twist anything due to your anti London hatred)

Widnes have got a synthetic pitch that is worth a huge amount for home advantage.
