As he enters the field at Magic Weekend.

Why?

He's the type of person we need more of in our game.

It's a tough game this, fans don't have to be nice to everyone - twas ever thus.

I'd boo Lenaghan or McManus if they walked out onto the field: doesn't mean they don't do a good job. If Koukash is serious about making Salford a dominant club he'll have to get used to people not fa2ning over him. I'm sure the Salford fans cheered him as he came on, and rightly so.

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.

PROUD TO BE A MEMBER OF http://www.rugbyleaguecares.org/ and http://www.walesrugb...-wales-for-2013
Predictions for the future -
Crusaders RL to get a franchise for 2012 onwards -WRONG
Widnes Vikings also to get a franchise - RIGHT
Crusaders RL to do the double over Widnes and finish five places ahead of them -WRONG
Widnes Vikings NOT to dominate rugby league in years to come! STILL TO COME

I promise to pay �10 to the charity of Bomb Jacks choice if Widnes Millionaires finish above the battling underdogs Crusaders RL. I OWE A TENNER!

Envy ?  Just remind me of their league position at the moment .....

Just because we don't all fawn over him and think he's the best thing since sliced bread does not make us small minded

 

The way he conducts himself in the the public eye is downright childish


Now then, it's a race between Sandie....and Fairburn....and the little man is in........yeees he's in.

I, just like those Castleford supporters felt that the ball should have gone to David Plange but he put the bit betwen his teeth...and it was a try

Kevin Ward - best player I have ever seen

The real Mick Gledhill is what you see on here, a Bradford fan ........, but deep down knows that Bradford are just not good enough to challenge the likes of Leeds & St Helens.

the two cas fans interviewed on the pitch on saturday left no one in any doubt what they thought of koukash

The default reaction of some people is 'it's not one of my lot therefore i'll boo/abuse'. I remember plenty of people booing the Australian national anthem at the world cup final which was pretty poor. Booing Marwan is probably water off a duck's back though.

Don't understand why fans don't just ignore him. I think he has learnt some hard lessons so far and is less in your face in the press.

 

Twitter is a problem as it gives idiots a platform to have a go at public figures and some of our players (and owners) rise to it.

 

 

Remember RL is a family game

Here here well said!

And I was in the players bar after the Bulls v Giants game and the Bulls staff were all over him it was embarrassing. And the guy needs to learn that Rugby League is different to owning a race horse, he can't just go out and spend the cash to "buy" a Rugby League Trophy. It's a long building process which takes years. Huddersfield, Widnes and Castleford have shown how it should be done.

At the end of the day he will thrive, even on the boos because it gets him publicity which is his game.

I'd gladly suffer plenty of his boo boys to be in his financial position just like he wouldn't want to lose his boo boys to be in mine.

 

Let's get some sort of a grip here, please.

Idiots boo Koukash, so what, it's not life changing!!

The Dr has a plan and I'm sure he's loving the boo's,it means he can continue to go about his business and build a reputation within the game.


So far the Dr has given his opinions, challenged senior people within the game with his ideas and he is ready to spend to accumalate.

What ever people / fans think of him and / or Salford the Dr is here and gets us in the paper / news.

It can only be good for us!!!!

Bottom line is that I don't think he's been here long enough to decide whether to boo or cheer.
