In Topic: EVEL - The perfect acronym for an act of political stupidity

03 July 2015 - 01:28 PM

Won't stop English MPs voting on items specific to Scotland, Wales or NI though.


Indeed. Which confirms its self-serving stupidity.

In Topic: Warrington Wolves rebrand

02 July 2015 - 02:45 PM

I've deleted a fair bit of off topic stuff and personal argy bargy from this thread.


If it kicks off again, those involved will find themselves suspended until further notice.


Back on topic, please, and play nicely.



In Topic: Labour leadership contest

01 July 2015 - 09:46 PM

As far as the SNP goes Labour has two choices, abandon any ambition in Scotland and get into bed with the SNP, or oppose them with as much vigour as possible.  The first option would be poison in England, but in order to opt for the second option Labour would have to become IMO more left wing than at the present, which could also be poison in England, a difficult dilemma.  Of course if Labour could get out the voters in England who didn't vote last time, who stand to gain most from a Labour government there wouldn't be a problem.  But  that's easier said than done.


It certainly is.

In Topic: Rugby League World - New Issue Info & Feedback Thread

01 July 2015 - 09:44 PM

Certainly the best issue since the re-vamp earlier this year. For me, with the exception of Ryan Hall's interesting take on the Marquee ruling, the best reads were NOT the ones written by current and ex players! They remain pretty dull and generally add nothing new to our sum knowledge.


High spots were Wellens, Collier, Disciplinary, Bondi, Toulouse and Knives in the Back.


Overall, not great, but still the second best monthly RL mag going!


Er, thanks, I think.


Is Rugby League the only sport where the views of those who have played it at the highest level are held in such low esteem, I wonder?

In Topic: Oops the Bulls slip up tonight

01 July 2015 - 09:38 PM

I have to say it really isn't. Been coming all season. O'Brian and Gaskell been papering over the cracks all season. Absolutely lethargic tonight, at times worse than last year. Bulls to lose a few more before the 8s and to do not very much when we get there.

Well played to Fev. Didn't put a foot wrong all night.


Spot on.
