The "debate" which was about the S/L meeting was not deleted, only the posts that were outside the subject of the thread. 
Obviously you are back tracking and now do not regard the games "darkest moments" moments as the late 50's early 60's.(When Terry Clawson started his career).
So if you are now claiming the darkest days were the 60's & 70's. then this thread is just for you.
Go-ahead and justify your claim

Lets not forget, Featherstone Rovers is a RUGBY club.

Back tracking ?

 

Did Terry Clawson play through the 1970s or what ?

You're implying it in saying that I'm backtracking on something I never posted.

 

I'm prepared to debate the game's "darkest moments".  Clearly it's a subjective matter.  But anyone who thinks that - in particular - the period immediately prior to the appointment of Oxley and Howes in the mid 1970s was not a candidate - whether or not you personally enjoyed that period - is deluding themselves.  The game was on its uppers.
