In Topic: 29/8/2015 RL Challenge Cup Final Hull Kingston Rovers v Leeds Rhinos, Wembley...

Today, 11:08 PM

I believe the score was 50-0?

Even my seasons long lack of respect for Sir benthaler could not explain Fifty Nil,was that really the scoreline.
After 30 mins I had lost any passion for asking the Ref to consider taking all the Leeds players back 10 or being square at the play the ball. His myopic view of the Kelly ball steal within a metre of the linesman and right in front of me also confirmed my view of his prejudice. Nobody mentioned the ref because he didn't earn a mention.
Everybody too busy banging on about the magic 50 or their love of Kieron Dixon. But if you want to switch the subject to the ref I will go with that...50 50 50 50 50 50 50.....


Blaming the ref is the loud call of the desperate.


Refs couldn't care less who wins.

In Topic: 4 Sept: Super 8s - Leeds Rhinos v St Helens KO 8pm (TV)

Today, 11:05 PM

Both teams have had a week off so should be fresh, can't see Saints recovering their recent appalling form though so it looks like Leeds to me.

In Topic: Crowd Watch 27

Today, 10:56 PM

Good crowd at the Hudds v Castleford game tonight starting this weekend off on a positive. Entertaining fare too....I'll miss Friday morning Breakfast RL when the seasons over.

As for the system v system = failing stance. Fewer people at games and fewer people watching games on TV thus far than this point last year is the only stats you need to know. The Kids are back at School now and the holidays are over, so now we should see some of the losses clawed back


Did the kids all go to school all through previous summers and nobody have holidays, I seem to have been in a parallel universe as I am sure in my world we had kids off school and people on holiday all through summer rugby.

In Topic: I quite like that Stuart Maconie chap

Today, 09:09 PM

Maconie managed to write a book about Wigan without mentioning rugby league but did plenty of soccer.

In Topic: European Refugee Crisis

Yesterday, 11:54 PM

I can only go on what I have read and heard via the media, same as most people.


Here is one quote from an article on the BBC website:

Article here: http://www.bbc.co.uk...urope-34115570 (scroll down)


I have seen and heard a number of reports which include reference to economic migrants being among the migrants arriving in their droves in Europe.  I do believe on one occasion when Italy was their first port of call (it is now Greece), a suspected terrorist was among the number and he was arrested in Italy.  It would be all too easy for lone wolf terrorists to hide among genuine refugees or economic migrants which is something that shouldn't be forgotten.


So lets be clear, Germany are looking at 800,000 people they are processing. Some of which they may be sending home. We are talking about around 3,000 people sitting in Calais wanting to come here, not even in this country to process. Germany accepts them processes them in hundreds of thousands and we can't cope with a tiny percentage of that. 


Does that not say something about how this country is being run, we can't do do a tiny percentage of what Germany is doing, or does it show how with the right wing agenda taking over in this country we are heading to be the be the most intolerant first world country on the planet.
