#2998725 ROYAL FAMILY & RUGBY LEAGUE.

Posted by Griff on 19 September 2014 - 10:05 AM

It's this kind of attitude that holds out game back. What we should be doing is inviting the landed gentry so we can get some good PR. Yeah that'll really have a tangible benefit.

You sir, are a dinosaur, buying tickets and the like.

 

I tug my forelock to you, milord.




#2998633 RL fans mentality helping kill a dying sport.2

Posted by Griff on 19 September 2014 - 08:12 AM

I've said this for a long time.  Too many playoff games.  The crowds don't support them and they need to go.

 

Two games + the Grand Final will be better, I think.




#2998168 ROYAL FAMILY & RUGBY LEAGUE.

Posted by Griff on 18 September 2014 - 05:49 PM

Do we actually invite them?

 

Nobody invites me.  If I want to go, I go.




#2997960 Scotland independence / GB / Catalans (merged threads)

Posted by Griff on 18 September 2014 - 12:39 PM

Yorkshire next. ;)




#2997005 Points Deduction

Posted by Griff on 17 September 2014 - 07:28 AM

Funny that Keith, Jacob Fairbank was injured also this season and he was loaned to Wakefield and London making him unavailable to us perhaps we could have argued the same

 

You're right. Batley could have argued that and asked for a dispensation.  But they didn't.

 

Workington, on the other hand, did put a case forward for a dispensation and got it.

 

That's the difference.




#2992774 Mark Aston calls for vote of no confidence in RFL

Posted by Griff on 11 September 2014 - 07:14 AM

The RFL are fine. The problem is the whining fans who blame everything which goes wrong on the RFL.

 

Absolutely. Aston should be calling for a vote of no confidence in the Tribunals.  That's where the problem lies.

 

The RFL are probably gutted - they'll be able to see the storm coming.




#2992397 Mark Aston calls for vote of no confidence in RFL

Posted by Griff on 10 September 2014 - 03:05 PM

Got any proof about these 'suspect student visas'? Pretty strong accusation to be making...

 

I see the UKBA are being blamed now.




#2984737 Appeal

Posted by Griff on 29 August 2014 - 11:29 AM

i agree it should be sorted on the pitch but I have a feeling if haven town or the cougars now go down it will drag on and get messy.

 

It'd be nice if the players on the pitch were entitled to be there.

 

I hope nobody at Batley is in any way proud of this.

 

You won an appeal - doesn't make it right.




#2983712 NRL to go to THREE referees?

Posted by Griff on 28 August 2014 - 08:09 AM

Nope. 37 refs:

-each player

-one to monitor each sub, er, interchange player

-each coach

-one to monitor the water carriers

 

we don't need one for each water carrier. That'd be daft.

 

Yeah - but then you'd need 37 refs to monitor the refs.




#2982586 Malcolm Reilly to present the cup

Posted by Griff on 25 August 2014 - 04:56 PM

Sir Malcolm Reilly - Rugby League royalty.




#2977868 York - The Games Sleeping Giant?

Posted by Griff on 15 August 2014 - 04:46 PM

So, never then.




#2977866 Why the empty seats?

Posted by Griff on 15 August 2014 - 04:44 PM

if they aren't available then they won't bid.

 

Tell me, Tom, why would these grounds pay to stage big RL matches ?

 

What's your business model ?




#2977591 York - The Games Sleeping Giant?

Posted by Griff on 15 August 2014 - 10:49 AM

The club has no ambition, until they have a board who has money they will always be a small club in th bottom division.

 

And even when they have a board with money, probably much the same.




#2975346 Bonus Points or Not ?

Posted by Griff on 11 August 2014 - 01:26 PM

So, exactly the same system then, but with -1 for every match every team plays?

 

 

Yet it avoids that points for losing business. ;)




#2975143 Junior draft system

Posted by Griff on 11 August 2014 - 08:39 AM

I think Terry Hill was right - it doesn't work under current employment legislation.

 

On the other hand, it'd be good to see more even competition.
