#3004801 Cougars begin legal action; propose expanded Championship (merged threads)

Posted by Padge on Yesterday, 10:18 PM

Is that what players do? I thought they spent most of their time arguing and influencing the people in charge on the pitch?


They make their point and move on.


Some even appeal to the RFL, but when they lose they move on.


Going to court is pathetic.

#3004134 Tony Smith: The game is not protecting our players

Posted by Padge on 28 September 2014 - 07:22 PM

In the 1980s the RFl tried handing out9,10,11 match bans for high tackles and other foul play. The result was...


...nothing changed.


The game is inherently dangerous, accidents will happen, malicious acts will happen. 


Coaches say the RFL doesn't protect players, coaches are the ones that do not protect players, they employ the players and they coach them how to play the game.


When a coach starts to sack his players for foul play I'll start to listen to his whinging about foul play.


Meanwhile physician heal thy self.

Is there a smaller ground that Huddersfield could play at? If their ground was Wheldon Road size they might even get better crowds, as there would be a better atmosphere.


Wrong attitude, fill the ground, don't shrink to the crowd.


Bloody typical negative RL fans solution.

#3002039 Ban The Side-Step

Posted by Padge on 24 September 2014 - 10:23 PM

There have been many cases over the years of players causing themselves injury by side-stepping, they have caused themselves ligament damage and on occasions dislocations and breaks of the lower limbs by indulging in this dangerous practice.


One other consequence of the unexpected side-step is that it occasionally  causes the opposition defenders to misjudge their tackles. The side steppers are a danger to themselves, they confuse the opposition causing them to inflict damage on players they didn't expect to be changing direction..


Get rid of the dangerous practice of side-stepping I say.


Next we need to look at the dummy pass, they can be lethal.

#3000198 Sky Sports forced to apologise to St Helens and their fans

So the Saints chairman was amazed that his fans behaved themselves.

B McD, who I used to have a lot of respect for, was like sulking 7 year old who hadn't got his own way post match, and its not the first time.

#2998987 Hardaker or Escare: Who is Super League’s best No.1?

Posted by Padge on 19 September 2014 - 05:20 PM

Hardaker is playing in a better team which makes his life easier, Ecsare at times is Catalans life line.


Escare is far more entertaining and isn't an utter and complete idiot.


Escare is the one I would have in my team, I wouldn't have Hardaker for free.

#2996852 New deal for Escaré

Posted by Padge on 16 September 2014 - 07:30 PM

Fantastic player, glad to see Catalan offer him a long deal.

#2996217 What can we do to increase attendances?

Posted by Padge on 15 September 2014 - 07:51 PM

One thing that would help increase attendances is if 'fans' of the game stopped slagging it off so much.


Anybody reading the RL forums who wasn't familiar with the game would only get the impression that its a crappy game dying on its backside.

#2994119 Ian Paisley dies

Posted by Padge on 12 September 2014 - 05:54 PM

I never got the man, but for his greatest advisory to say he saw him as a friend means he had something.


RIP, without his input peace may never have come to Ireland.

Escare, but Peacock will get it. Won't complain if he does.

#2988645 Is Zak Hardaker set for another lengthy ban? (Merged threads)

Posted by Padge on 04 September 2014 - 10:14 PM

Is blowing a kiss what we are talking about here? I didnt think so.


No it isn't, but if ZH didn't want scrutinising then he shouldn't have done it. Without that open gesture what came next would not probably be under scrutiny. Immediately he did that, plus given his record, people (media) are going to look at what prompted it and what followed.


He hasn't the brains to keep his dead down when in the firing line.


I can see Leeds eventually regretting, as Wigan did with Hock, standing by their man.

#2988440 Is Zak Hardaker set for another lengthy ban? (Merged threads)

Posted by Padge on 04 September 2014 - 04:29 PM

Players to Eff all over the field in pro rugby, then they put mics on refs and you hardly ever here it.


Players learn not to react. I don't by the argument of impulsive because that's how it is.


Don't know if he's guilty or not, if guilty he's a bigger idiot than I already thought, if he's not guilty he's only got himself to blame for all the mud being slung his way as he definitely blew the kiss and if he doesn't want people to jump to conclusions then don't behave like a burke.
