I think Bret 'The Spartan' McDermott played in every position in his career with the Cumbrian clubs.

It was a discussion I had on Friday night with a few people Barry. People are bored with every topic getting hijacked with the same tripe by certain people. So they don't bother to post anymore. Don't take it as personal.




A few years ago the banter was good natured and quite humorous most of the time but then came along a few who hardly ever had anything positive to say.  They became very tedious and not funny.  I know one or two folk who hardly give this forum a glance these days.  Shame really, but it is a free place and anyone can come in.


Perhaps when the Raiders have a prolonged upturn in fortunes the clowns may disappear and the banter may return.

#2931985 Rugby league oik faces public flogging as well as a ban

What exactly is the issue people are having here? He's broken the rules of the game.


Specifically, this one:


9.B.3 The Opposing Team

© A defending team must not shout during a kick at goal.


It's also more than likely that he would have been breaking the rules had he done so in a Rugby League match too, although the wording is a bit more vague:


Section 6, Rule 9

It is illegal to attempt to distract the attention of a player who is kicking at goal.



This may just be the daftest thing the RFU have ever come up with.


It may be in the rules.  These rules written back when Adam was a lad.  The same rules that prohibited players from being paid which would have made them 'professional' but were conveniently ignored when Peter Wheeler et al were found to be getting paid for wearing boots of a particular make.


Give over ya daft sod!

Good news folks, the documentary has resurfaced on Vimeo.  You can download it too by selecting 'download' just below the video.


The RFL would do well to promote 'The Greatest Game of All' on the back of this remarkable family who show the image of rugby in exactly the way you would want the world to view it.  




I hope this doesn't go against forum rules, copyright etc.
