#3170751 NRL new $1.7 billion TV deal with Fox Sports for 2018-2022

Posted by roughyedspud on Today, 10:19 AM

Theres only a couple of clubs in the NRL that turn a profit...nearly half of super league do...

Im all for upping our SC abit to £2m plus marquee signing...but lets go mad to keep up with the NRL.. the NRL is going doing our premier league football route...silly wages off the back of a huge tv deal which is putting NRL clubs in more and more debt..

What was the story a year or two ago? SL clubs,all 14 of them,are in debt to the tune of £68m..which was the same as cardiff city fc..we aren't doing that bad all things considered.

Posted by roughyedspud on 26 July 2015 - 12:56 PM

Look....micky mac is a liability...always as been....we,england,don't need that...we have george & tom to rough people up legally.

#3164920 England hookers - four into two spots?

Posted by roughyedspud on 26 July 2015 - 12:52 PM

Disagree, Steve Mac loves Mick Mac so it is definitely 4 into 2 in his eyes (if not others).

I disagree....when he picked micky mac he had no other options....roby was injured he had to pick him....now he doesn't

#3164887 England hookers - four into two spots?

Posted by roughyedspud on 26 July 2015 - 12:19 PM

Its 3 into 2....roby,hodgson and clarke are head and shoulders above micky mac...

Ive posed a question on LU about our hooker situation...

Josh is providing canberra with unbelevable intensity,drive and go forward..which,imo,opens up the game for clarke or roby to hit the holes around a tired ruck later in the halves...

Englands hooking senario at the moment is fantastic...nz & oz can't offer want we can at the minute

#3161040 Braveheart benji

Posted by roughyedspud on 20 July 2015 - 05:49 AM

Apparently benji marshall,who apprently has scottish heritage,has been sounded out to play for scotland in upcoming internationals,next years 4nations and the world cup in 2017...

Whether you agree or disagree with this its no different to what the likes of samoa do selecting former kiwis..

#3161035 championship champions how is it worked out .

Posted by roughyedspud on 20 July 2015 - 04:12 AM

#3159368 Fire. Guessing that was the imminent announcement.

Posted by roughyedspud on 16 July 2015 - 11:39 PM

In the new stand that hasn't had planning permission.

The new stand he doesn't have the steelwork for either??

#3158947 Who is at fault ?

Posted by roughyedspud on 16 July 2015 - 11:39 AM

they can afford to run  A teams...they've just got lazy because the biggest cost of running a team..the players and salary cap is taken care of via the tv grant...they don't have to promote games anymore..they can afford to shift game like wigan v leeds to a thursday and take 4000 less on the gate compared to last seasons friday games



to paraphrase kanye west...the RFL & clubs don't care about fans anymore...us turning up is a bonus

#3158524 CH Meeting 27th April - Detailed report

Posted by roughyedspud on 15 July 2015 - 10:51 AM

Cos ive missed the last 2 meeting,one cos i was on holiday and the other for personal reasons ive decided to withdraw from future meetings....for a couple of reasons...

1. As mark can testify,my main objective was to initiate conversation between ORLFC & RO....i feel this objective has been achieved...

2. Im dealing with some personal issues at the min that need my undivided attention..

Thanks to everyone involved and i'll become involved again further down the road hopefully.

#3148750 Steve Matai, he may be a veteran but he has still got it.

Posted by roughyedspud on 28 June 2015 - 12:18 PM

Yeah but he probably hurt his neck....like he does in every god damn game he plays!

#3148745 Time to bring back Great Britain....yaaaaawwwwn!
