In Topic: Unbelievable moaning by the Aussies

17 November 2014 - 11:37 AM

 

And as for the International Rules match last yr, Aus took over only players with Indiginous heritage, some were teenagers, it wasn't a proper contest, besides if it was the rules are in favour of Ireland in any case. 

 

Typical.  If you don't play to Australia's rules, the rules aren't good enough.

 

No wonder the Aussies keep winning.  It's easier for the rest of the world than listening to them whinge.

 

And for what it's worth, I've always thought International Rules favour the Aussies but I'm no expert.

Here's the downside to owning your own ground.

 

You have assets to seize.


In Topic: Featherstone Rovers - what's all this?

There's an idea that the club are getting prize money for finishing second in the Championship - is this true? If so this may pay the bill if the RFL have yet to pay it up?

 

Are you confusing that with funding for 2015 ?

Are you saying that the quote is from the sixth version of the King James Bible?  Or are you a Scot?  BSJ wouldn't want any uncertainties around his Kings you know.

 

:laugh:

 

Interestingly - though off topic - had today's rules applied back in 1603, he would have been King James VI on both sides of the border.


In Topic: 'Well Run' clubs

I think that is a good point, and tbh one I come back to every time.

 

Lenegan is having far more 'outward' success at Wigan than he ever did at London, I'm sure David Hughes would be a great success at another club based on his deep pockets. All clubs have different circumstances, it's why I'm not a massive fan of criticising anybody investing in RL, even if it all goes wrong.

 

Agree with that in part, Dave.   The two points I'd make are

 

1. Fine so long as it's just the investor's money at stake.  Unwitting creditors - and that includes players - may not have such deep pockets and need to pay their mortgages too.

 

2. It makes the club very vulnerable when the investor suddenly decides to pull the plug.
