#3112303 My bbc paranoia

Interesting BBC i-player factoid. The current ratio of club U to club RL programmes available for your perusal is about 8:1

And how much Club RL and Club RU do they have the rights to show?

Presumably Sky doesn't have much in the way of online highlights of sports they don't have rights to show either.




#3111618 ARU announce non home players can now qualify for national team

I agree, I'd love to see Stefon Armitage get a go at open side for England but with central contracts and deals negotiated with the clubs by the RFU for player release and games played it makes overseas players difficult to accommodate.

The previous policy - ignoring O/S-based players for Wallaby selection - was a pathetic attempt to stop players going to ENG, France and Japan for the money. It was really an admission that the ARU pay was so far behind that even patriotism couldn't breach the gap anymore.

Unlike England, New Zealand and France who have a similar rule in place...

What a patronising and pompous response Shadow. An apology would have served you much better and elevated you above the troll level to which you have sunk.

Every now and again I take a look at your messages to remind myself why you're on ignore. No change there the

Ski-ing is never termed a regional sport and yet clearly it is but Ski Sunday isn't only available in the Cairngorms.

Poor choice
People all over the country go skiing, you may as well claim F1 is regional because it only takes place in Northamptonshire

Not to be pedantic but I would say it's more like Bournemouth beating Southampton rather than Man Utd, which definitely wouldn't make the same kind of waves.

It would in Southampton

Was there any point to that?

It's ink redible the lengths some people will go for a pun

Difficult when she has a weekly newspaper column and radio show.


I don't find it a problem to ignore her completely

Between the three of them they have posted over sixteen and a half thousand messages on a Rugby League message board and they accuse RL fans of having a voyeuristic relationship with Rugby Union.  

 

Where have any of us ever done that?

I go into a bookies once a year, I went there on Saturday, guess why, clue it wasn't specifically to watch a Union game, it just happened to be on the big screen, and I watched as I waited for the indecisive one to make her choice.

With only two boats in it how long can it take her? :P

In the rush to catch the outrage bus as it chugs into action have none of you considered the possible connection with NFL?
The competition is being aimed at NFL franchise cities and naming it NRFL will both associate and differentiate the two competitions.
I seriously doubt if the organisers are even aware of a second code of rugby.

 RFL's business plan.

I have spotted the flaw in your argument

D Collins for one.

You are absolutely right and it's entirely my fault.
What I should have asked was
"Who that is credible says these things"

IDS seems to be being kept out of the limelight.  I wonder why?
