#3027073 Not having neutral refs makes the sport look like a shambles!

We're just soft on the Aussies.


We should just tell them that we won't stand for it.  These Aussie refs have different rules to us for a start.

Looks OK at the moment.

#3022487 Sheffield to play at Doncaster in 2015

Posted by Griff on 29 October 2014 - 03:27 PM

i am not sure this is the best option moving to a different town that already has an established team there,

how many eagles fans are going to make the journey to Donny,

would a one year deal with one of the 2 union clubs in Sheffield be a better option, i dont know what standard these 2 grounds/stadiums are but i know Abbeydale Park has a stand and floodlights,


They make Owlerton look like a palace.

The real Rorke's Drift was in Sydney.


There was another one, I believe.

#3017309 2015 Fixtures

Posted by Griff on 21 October 2014 - 09:34 AM

Why the hell can't they ever get it right - one home game in April, but three in May -  which will most likely be the month I take my holidays. Is it such hard work to give clubs alternate home and away fixtures ? :rtfm:


Yes. It's impossible.  If they did, you'd never play the five teams who were at home when you were at home because they'd always be home when you were at home and away when you were away.

Thanks always interesting & informative....


Well, thanks, Parky.  But it's merely my interpretation of the information available.

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.

Do we actually invite them?


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

#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.

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


I see the UKBA are being blamed now.
