#3063547 Leigh junior centurions hits 700 for 2015

Posted by Padge on Yesterday, 06:56 PM

That's an impressive number and a very impressive increase, yep getting of your ariss and getting out there to spread the word works.




#3061769 Leeds in Division two.

Posted by Padge on 27 January 2015 - 12:08 PM

Bully for you. Welcome back. There was no ulterior motive to this thread. The sole reason for it was to counter the claim that Leeds had never been in the lower tier of RL football and I couldn't post it in direct response to the allegation as the thread had been locked.  

 

That wasn't the claim though, so it seems a bit of a pointless counterpoint. 

 

Its as if someone posted that Wigan have never been in the  2nd division during the 1990s and 2000s and you claim that the fact is wrong because Wigan were in the second division in 1980.




#3059925 Record ST sales at Leigh

Posted by Padge on 23 January 2015 - 10:49 PM

So is this the highest number of season tickets sold in Leigh's 136 year history?

 

It could be like in the 2005 storming of SL when they 'sold over 5,000 tickets' for their first game and only 4,062 turned up, including the away support.

Oh for ffs who would ever think it's a good Idea to live in or near even thinking it's ok next to the 580 A road to a kicking to Liverpool? ######k.".

 

I'm warming to him, his randomness is amusing.




#3059870 Alias Smith & Jones

Posted by Padge on 23 January 2015 - 09:24 PM

The general good-natured feel of the series suggests it was at least partially inspired by 'Butch Cassidy & the Sundance Kid'.

 

Someone with enough talent could have parleyed up a decent TV series from 'The Sting' too.

 

the whole thing was lifted from BC & SDK, the Smith and Jones names were lifted from the film.




#3059868 WCC - sell outs?

Posted by Padge on 23 January 2015 - 09:21 PM

Everyone knows Melbourne has AFL. Its difficult to take any community seriously when they think men wearing tight shorts ##### slapping each other is not a metaphor for an Identity crisis.
Back to subject . We have now got blokes who would play League for nothing because it's better , rather than get paid to pay Union.

Thanks for your input, you won't be missed.




#3059844 WCC - sell outs?

Posted by Padge on 23 January 2015 - 08:55 PM

Perhaps I made my point badly. The WCC is Indeed the culmination of two tournaments. the winners of a Yorshshire /Lancashire competition play the winners of what is realistically the winner of NSW vs Brisbane( if Brisbane makes it).
The Inclusion of other teams is an add on. That echoes a bygone Era of rugby Union. What we have now is what the amature ethos once was where someone could earn more money by going to the dark side.
Now the Dark side is , rugby union and Rugby league players are criticised for taking money for playing a clearly Inferior version of our great game.

 

Sorry, you still make no sense




#3059799 cas ground

Posted by Padge on 23 January 2015 - 07:09 PM

Wow ,I'm sure that hadnt occured to the management of those lower table clubs , I think they just want stay small to annoy you 

 

Actually I do believe that it will never have occurred to a lot of them.




#3059757 cas ground

I'm sure Leeds ,Wigan Wire and Saints would love to be playing a London,Birmingham,Sheffield,Bristol,Newcastle rather than Salford,Huddersfield,Cas and the like 

 

But nobody is interested in those citys and they most likely never will be ( we are talking several decades at least here ) , so for the forseeable time they'll just have to put up with it ,now fine , increase the Salary Cap and finish up wuth  SL of 5/6 

 

In fact if we did somehow manage to find half a dozen Ahbramovic's and all of a sudden a national sport ( maybe with another 3 French giants ),all of a sudden the squealing  from our current big 4/5 would be deafening  , because basically you are just like the rest of us ,you want growth and improvement , as long as you're just that little bit bigger and better 

 

 

As opposed to your version, which is we can't get to be as big as you so we'll drag you all down to our level and damn what's best for the future of the game, but I'm all right jack.




#3059545 Sponsorship outrage!

Posted by Padge on 23 January 2015 - 09:23 AM

So no one should have a drink of pop or eat something whilst driving? Or even speak to someone in the car?

 

Hang on, is looking at the road, noticing the odd sign, using pedals and steering not multitasking?

 

Try Section 148 of the highway code.

 

148

Safe driving and riding needs concentration. Avoid distractions when driving or riding such as

  • loud music (this may mask other sounds)
  • trying to read maps
  • inserting a cassette or CD or tuning a radio
  • arguing with your passengers or other road users
  • eating and drinking
  • smoking



#3057468 Friendly result

Posted by Padge on 19 January 2015 - 12:35 PM

The Ellis one doesn't sound too bad, the Watts one does unfortunately. Watts was going really well before that too. Never realised he could pass the ball like Wally Lewis. He's been keeping that under wraps.

 

Yeah but Wally Lewis is 55.




#3055842 Sponsorship outrage!

Posted by Padge on 15 January 2015 - 10:12 AM

Does anybody else feel that Warrington are being used as a political pawn in this. This company wants to get the general consensus changed to e-cigs can be used anywhere, effectively sidestepping smoking in public legislation (its still smoking regardless of the delivery system, and regardless of any nicotine junkies protestations). The timing is right, election coming up, the government has no time to have a fight on this, it'll be 6 months before any government could even consider it, and twelve months probably until they could get around to doing anything about it.

 

This is a going to be used as a lever to encourage first other sports grounds and then other public places to allow the use of e-cigs.

A Hull FC supporting cat!  In Wigan.

 

Widnes Geoff, isn't it obvious.




#3055158 Smarter Scheduling Would Increase Crowds In Superleague...?

Posted by Padge on 13 January 2015 - 09:07 AM

leeds have tried a few Sunday games and the attendance stays about the same but theres a big fall off  on the hospitality side of things which brings in big money at headingley

 

Wigan see the same, corporate is worth a lot more on a Friday night.

 

Its not the numbers of bums on seats, its the number of £s in the bank.




#3054129 Sponsorship outrage!

Posted by Padge on 10 January 2015 - 10:15 AM

Maybe Warrington should put it to a vote with there supporters, not the sponsorship but whether nicotine inhalation of all forms should be banned from the terraces.
