There is no such thing as a Rugby league stud. Where is it stated that you can only wear a certain size stud in RL? In 26 years of playing as an amateur and a pro I never got told I had the wrong studs in
What difference would it have made to de glanville's face being transformed into a Francis Bacon portrait-an exams of the 'art' of rucking right enough.
The players studs and their apparent provenance was used as a scapegoat to smear one sport and take the attention away from the thuggery of another
Well illegal studs would have done.
The thrust of the publicity about this case was the rugby league studs rather than the thuggery of the person wearing them, which is the point
You are wrong, there are plenty of articles still available and the thrust of them all is the thuggery of the All Blacks player, the term "Rugby League Studs" was used because the longer square ended studs were for use in er... Rugby League. Football studs are also illegal as they are plastic and can shatter to give sharp edges, had they been on the New Zealander's boots the term "Football Studs" would have been used.
one would have thought that the media would have blamed the person who actually raked de Glanville's face. One would have thought this kind of incident would have been frequent in Rugby League what with everyone running around in these studs.
I agree that the person responsible was reprehensible and there was a lot of media coverage to that effect, including the use of illegal studs.
You would not expect that sort of injury in Rugby League as the act of Rucking is not part of the game.
It's as if Yorkshiremen were banned from describing themselves as English.
That would be pointless.
No one from Yorkshire would ever describe themselves as English.
I've yet to meet a Yorkshireman who described himself as anything other than being from Yorkshire, at great and boring length and then going on to tell everyone how great Yorkshire is before anyone else gets a word in.
I went to a Sean Locke gig a couple of years ago and he had a routine where he claimed to be trying to reclaim the phrase "I'm not racist but" as it only ever seemed to be used by people making racist statements. He used examples of him reclaiming it such as "I'm not racist but can you pass the sugar"
Having had the misfortune to have a business taken down by a long delayed payment of £75,000 I was shocked at how it seemed almost criminally easy to close down on monday and start up as Shadow trading 2014 ltd on tuesday. I would like to see legislation to manage this aspect of it, it does seem to be an easy way of not paying people and carrying on as usual.
This is extremely misleading as it is trying to make out that a stadium like Brighton has had 40k applications for 27k worth of tickets. The reality is that only something like 18k will be on sale and the rest will be tour packages and corporates. This will be even higher at other grounds with larger capacities.
Also, legally there must be an option to decline your purchase if you had bid for two £35 tickets and ended up being stung for £85 tickets.
