They related to Jerry and the 4 Kiwis of the apocalypse?

 

Probably the same ones but switched sport.  :biggrin:

Your conspiracy theory is wrong:

I'm not sure how they can withhold Warrington's fee for this.

 

If £5k was for providing a high profile presence then I'd suggest that your Chairman, First Team Coach and Club Captain (one of the biggest names in the game) is surely enough to show that you have taken it seriously. Especially if they didn't fine Smith for not turning up last year.

 

If the second £5k was for staging the event, then there can be no justification for withholding this, as they did stage it.

 

As has been pointed out, Smith has given Clubcall more than its fair share of coverage!

Smith's problem may be if he was warned last year about not turning up and he would be expected to be there in future.

 

I don't know if that's the case or not, but if it is he could be in hot water.  I can't see last years snub going without comment from the RFL.

Aye, if he was warned fair enough, nothing was mentioned publicly.

May not have been but he may have been written to, or even just a bit of a word in his ear.

Anything more to add? Like how your supposed 'quote' was misleading and false?


Do the board not count as "we" then?

Wasn't a conspiracy theory, more just a throwaway comment.

I'm sure the RFL will be upset to see the game extending it's media coverage.

I think it would be £5k back because he didn't turn up, and £5k as a fine.

Though knowing the RFL, half would be suspended

Don't worry though, as soon as they showed interest there was a RL 'fan' to put them straight that RL is $hiite

 

Wouldn't worry too much as if your've listened to football fans they never stop moaning about the FA... So its what they themselves are used too.... fans can always run the game better no doubt and no matter what the sport....
