Death to the loser in a fair fight.

#3129849 Ireland votes yes

Posted by Padge on 26 May 2015 - 08:55 PM

I remember walking to school in 1995 around the time of the referendum legalizing divorce and seeing the "Vote No" posters scaremongering about the destruction of the family etc. That referendum was passed by 51:49. Fast forward twenty years and the message from the no camp was pretty much unchanged, the same lies and bigotry, only now even fewer people are listening.


That'll be because they realise the world hadn't ended by the change, but the religious controlling hand on the throat of the masses had been weakened, which would make more people more likely to want to enter the modern world and leave the middle ages.

#3129232 Blackpool Summer Bash (merged threads)

yep, id like to see a charge of unsportsmanlike conduct for this. Or even just a yellow card.


We definitley need to get a grip on this along with other discipline issues, mouthing at refs, screaming furkin hell at the ref and adding sir at the end doesn't make it right, especially when it is broadcast across the nation.

will you still be in denial when we are trophy less again at the end of the season ?


I don't give a $h!tt if we have a trophy at the end of the season. The season isn't about winning a pot, its about have I been entertained, have I seen players give their best (even if it isn't good enough to win a trophy), the tin pot is the cream, I'm happy to have the cake, the cream can be an extra.

Betelgeuse, I support the intergalactic alliance.

#3123211 Wigan v Hull KR RL Cup Round 6 K.O. 8pm (Sky TV)

It doesn't have to be all about skill and flair in order for a game to be good. Sometimes shear hard graft and endeavour from both teams should be applauded. Mistakes will always happen in intensive games, it is how teams deal with them that counts. I for one thoroughly enjoyed tonights match and the efforts of both teams resulted in an entertaining spectacle. Job done.


I watch amateur RL, the skill levels are way below those of SL, there seems to be an implication from some people that I shouldn't bother because the skills aren't high enough for a good game. There are lots of excellent games of lower skill standards. Some people, obviously me and you excluded, don't appreciate entertainment in rugby league and want 0-0 every game because the defence has been perfect all through the game.*


If the attack was perfect then what would happen then????

#3123205 Labour leadership contest

On the morning that the Cut Throats victory was announced and confirmed emails were sent out to various NHS and Social services departments telling them what they had to cut.


The Cut Throats knew that these departments, working in mental health and essentially the underprivileged services, would have no chance of getting a news mention during the election victory for the bit of the nation that the result would benefit.

Entertainment yes

Skill no


We are in the entertainment business, some people struggle to grasp this.

#3123162 Wigan v Hull KR RL Cup Round 6 K.O. 8pm (Sky TV)

Well done KR, hell of a recovery, easily the better team tonight. Wigan didn't play well because after that early onslaught where they decided to take two Hull KR just grew in confidence.


After that they didn't let Wigan play without harassment. Wigan were poor...


... because KR forced them to be poor.


Great game.

#3119667 8 May: Wigan Warriors v Castleford Tigers KO 8pm

Posted by Padge on 09 May 2015 - 09:47 AM

Cas were better than nil, it was just that Wigan, especially in the second half, handled the conditions. It was a dreadful night and to get just over 15,000 on the ground was a testemant to the Wigan marketing team who had worked hard on the Heritage theme.

#3112989 To good, and maybe not good enough?

Posted by Padge on 27 April 2015 - 08:32 PM

Maybe a promoted team should be given 3 years to establish themselves in SL.


Oh hang on...

#3112385 UKIPpery

Posted by Padge on 26 April 2015 - 08:24 PM

Any party that has shaft rugby union as a policy has my vote and that includes UKIP*


*Actually that isn't true but I do like the idea that people vote on what is best for RL.

#3111958 Crowdwatch Round 12

Posted by Padge on 26 April 2015 - 07:43 AM

Chelsea, Man. U, City, Arsenal...yet Newcastle STILL get huge crowds.


As long as people in RL think success is the only driver of attendance we will have a problem.

#3111902 Drugs - another story coming out

Posted by Padge on 25 April 2015 - 09:10 PM

I hope the numbers I'm hearing are incorrect! If true it will be big news. ( at least 8 now)
If true, what would the implications for RL be in this country?


We are the best testers

#3111409 Leeds v Warrington

Posted by Padge on 24 April 2015 - 08:49 PM

Sin bin a Leeds player? You'll be expecting O'Loughlin to be penalized next


Lockers will have to play to be penalised.
