#3078760 Reported Drug Findings in League

Posted by Padge on 25 February 2015 - 10:27 PM

I'd be more concerned if like other sports the numbers caught were extremely low or non existent considering the numbers playing.

 

We seem to be the only sport who takes drug testing seriously.

 

Thank you and g'night.

Lets face it golden point is utter garbage, never liked it never will.

Some of the biggest crowds have been in Australia.




#3075610 How refreshing was tonight's commentary

Posted by Padge on 20 February 2015 - 10:11 PM

Ok we slag off the presentation a lot, tonight's team were great, no continual ranting about decisions.

 

Hemmings has just said in the post match, we don't want to concentrate on the refs decions, hilarious.

Well that was a rather good first 40.

You won't see me say this very often, the ref completely bottled that. That was a red without a doubt, the intent was there as well as poor execution, or near execution.

Missing this game due to birthday celebrations in Brussels.

Gutted as it's going to be cracker of a weekend.

good luck to all, here's to a super league whitewash


On the pricing of tickets, I thought at the beginning it was a gamble from the Wire, however it looks like it's paid off. Well done to the club and a massive pat on the back to the faithful and loyal fans.

What a massive turnaround from the days of wilderspool

 

no wonder you're so grouchy, Brugges is far better.

I understand what you say, after all you are a special breed.

However some fans are hard up, have purchased a season ticket, then had to save up to pay full price and then all of a sudden cheap tickets.

Can't pleased all but you can annoy and upset people

 

Its called choices, I tend to pay on the day, that means I pay max price. I don't whinge about season ticket holders getting in cheaper though.

 

If people are that hard up then sit and wait to see if there offers available, if there aren't any either pay what the price is or don't go.

 

I really don't get this idea that its something to get all sulky over.




#3074447 Premier Sports ads at WCC matches blocked

Posted by Padge on 18 February 2015 - 09:32 PM

Maybe ITV should take this attitude and stop Sky advertising on their channels.

 

 

Yes, because ITV hates making money

 

 

ITV wanted to refuse Sky Sports ads when Sky first set up, Murdoch whinged to Thatcher and it was declared anti-competitive and ITV had to drop their planned ban.




#3074440 Struggling to watch Sky games with every ref decision being analysed and deba...

There should be a petition to have Paul Cullen as No1 commentator

 

For the BBC's Union coverage.




#3074335 Foul and Abusive language

Posted by Padge on 18 February 2015 - 06:15 PM

Apparently their are complaints from both clubs as to the behaviour of the others management on their way to Red Hall , it was a ' full blooded ' encounter and I am in no way excusing Derecks language , I'd suggest the Bulls management might have to get used to similar ' encounters ' as the season progresses , all part of being the centre of the Championships ' dartboard ' this year

 

Oh that's all right then, because its against Bradford spouting foul and abusive language into the listening radio public's homes is ok.

 

Charming




#3071086 12 Feb: Salford Red Devils v St Helens KO 8pm (TV)

Posted by Padge on 12 February 2015 - 11:44 PM

saints gave away 5 penalties all night

8 against catalans

 

Watch what they are doing, tonight they gave a penalty and as the ball was played there was a blatant offside in front of the ref. 

 

They were willing to give penalty after penalty to disrupt the opposition's attack. For the last couple of seasons behaviour like that would put the team on a warning. 

 

Its so obvious what is going on its ridiculous. Normally at the start of the season there is a certain case of stall setting by refs. Well I can imagine from what I've seen what this years is, its coming from above (as it always does) as they are that desperate to get this season off to flyer that its no clamp downs, take it easy.

 

It won't be long before other teams follow Saints lead , and it isn't a new tactic, it was a regular tactic at Wigan years ago.

 

As for the rest of the game, did anyone tell Salford every minute matters, it appears not.

Saints goal line defence tactic number one is give a penalty.

i am on about the foot in touch, not the 53 second shoulder charge call. he (shoulder charge) was clearly told from upstairs.

 

My point still stands  :tongue:
