#3185834 New TV rights deal agreed with BBC

Posted by JohnM on Today, 07:45 AM

theres just a chance, slight though it maybe in some peoples eyes, that the RFL knows more about what it is doing than a set of naysaying keyboard warriors like us, though i concede tha some on here might be evven more familar with the buffet than Nigel

A truly  magic moment that did receive lots of media coverage in my view.

 

How can it be topped? Maybe it can't and Lizzie herself may not want to.

 

Maybe just remember it as  moment to be treasured, a moment to be recalled and revisited.

The competition is The Challenge Cup, not the challenge Cup Final. Hull KR DID compete and they had earned the perfect right to be at Wembley for the final tie.

For some, the glass is half empty.

For others, the glass is half full.

For all of us, there room in the glass for a lot more beer!

Enjoy the best BBC coverage EVER. Enjoy Maxine Peake'S contribution. Enjoy thd best Abide With Me ever. Enjoy Rob Burrow's magic try. Just ENJOY, FFS.

..... It's a bad result for rugby league.

 

 Leeds gave the world a lesson in speed, strength, fitness and football. Why is that such a bad thing?  In addition, the BBC pre match and match coverage was in my view the best for many many years.

Great piece by Maxine Peake at the start of the coverage. Getting the hairs on end already.


Yes, it was. Has to be the best intro ever. Needs beaming round the world.


#3182598 Surprised this hasnt been mentioned

Given the previous comments about air ambulance financing, i wondered why this hadn't been mentioned on here.

NFL isnt rugby league. This should be in AOB/AOS.

Posted by JohnM on 22 August 2015 - 08:02 PM

Give over. there is one reason and one reason only that Wakefield won: they scored more points than Leigh. no use moaning, no sour grapes. Lieghs loss was Leigh fault, no one elses.

I stand corrected. I have just referred to the dictionary of pronunciation on my merbile fern.  I should have written "YarkshA, YarkshA,YarkshA,YarkshA,YarkshA,"

 

Anywa, on topic, I can see no other result than a Leeds win, although that is not an outcome I desire.

Though to be honest, nothing can compare with the dark and menacing mood of utter and abject misery and despair - Wagnerian according to the entry in Groves - of that famous lyric poem, that story of descent of a once proud people into the fiery furnace of hell:  "Yarksher,Yarksher,Yarksher,Yarksher,Yarksher,Yarksher,
