#3003744 Is Smoking a Crime?

Posted by Old Frightful on 27 September 2014 - 09:24 PM

If smoking was made illegal then they should make drinking alcohol illegal also to be consistent.

Eh?

 

That might be appropriate if the person drinking alcohol next to you swirls it around in their mouth for a while before spurting it out in a fine spray that you can't possibly avoid.




#3002063 Ban The Side-Step

Posted by Old Frightful on 25 September 2014 - 01:35 AM

Is this supposed to be humourus?
Or are you up late with school in the morning?
If not get a life!!!

I agree with you, the thought of banning sidesteps is just plain daft.

Let's face it, it's not the sidestep itself that's dangerous, it's the speed at which it's done that causes the problems.

So I propose some kind of speed limit on the pitch using GPS (game pleasantly slower) technology. That would also reduce the impact of players colliding with each other.

It could perhaps rival that "walking football" that we see on those telly adverts.

And Hull FC might start being good again.

(Ok, that last bit was just ridiculous.)

I like his column

:ohmy:  Each to their own, I suppose.

 

Cas should give each of their players a copy of his dismissal of their chances before tomorrow night's game. 

 

Might be just what they need.




#3001741 RIP Greg Mackey

Posted by Old Frightful on 24 September 2014 - 12:44 PM

Oh God, what an awful shock. I knew he didn't have long left but I wasn't expecting this dreadful news so soon.

 

What Hull FC would give to have both Tony Dean and Greg Mackey back in their pomp in the black and white irregular hoops playing today.

 

As Hull FC captain, he gave us some great memories, the Premiership trophy win at Old Trafford over Widnes and that drop goal at Wilderspool to enable Hull to win 3-2 in a tryless game.

 

RIP Greg mate.




#2999580 20/09/14 - Leeds Rhinos v Catalan Dragons KO 5.15pm (TV)

Posted by Old Frightful on 20 September 2014 - 06:57 PM

Low,even by your standards.

I thank you. 

 

I am though, just a mere supporter and can make comments like that as it doesn't matter, I'm not important.

 

The Leeds' coach is an important figure in our game and should show a bit of restraint instead of letting a defeat to lowly Hull FC get to him and displaying this with bitter comments about the fans of the game.

 

(I didn't realise I had standards, btw.)




#2999564 20/09/14 - Leeds Rhinos v Catalan Dragons KO 5.15pm (TV)

Posted by Old Frightful on 20 September 2014 - 06:44 PM

I'm glad Catalan won but I feel gutted for Brian McDermott. He does seem like a very decent guy and the heartbreak he showed in his interview did make me feel sorry for him.

I'm sorry I missed it.

 

Did he say how much classier the Leeds' fans were in comparison to the Catalans' fans?

WBW?


#2999422 20/09/14 - Warrington Wolves v Widnes Vikings KO 2.45pm (TV)

Posted by Old Frightful on 20 September 2014 - 03:52 PM

That was the softest obstruction penalty I've seen.


#2999383 20/09/14 - Warrington Wolves v Widnes Vikings KO 2.45pm (TV)

Posted by Old Frightful on 20 September 2014 - 02:57 PM

I have. It isnt helping.

Try harder.

Outrageous penalty to Wire there, Tickle was being held down, not the other way round.


#2999332 Hardaker or Escare: Who is Super League’s best No.1?

Posted by Old Frightful on 20 September 2014 - 12:42 PM

This is exactly why we need the "vote down" button reinstating.

:ohmy:




#2999191 Travis Burns.

Posted by Old Frightful on 20 September 2014 - 07:05 AM

You say Saints pick off Travis Burns from Hull K R to make the league lopsided.

Can you argue the factual results I put in front of you.

I would say he could, tbh. Rovers have a good record against Saints, they're a bit of a bogey side to them.

 

However, I don't think you could argue with the league table.




#2998900 Wembley statue begins to come to life

Posted by Old Frightful on 19 September 2014 - 02:34 PM

When I read the thread title I thought it was going to be a bit like "A night at the museum".




#2997795 Ben Crooks heading for the NRL?

Posted by Old Frightful on 18 September 2014 - 09:06 AM

Crooks sent to Australia?

Who'd have thought it?


#2996759 Is Zak Hardaker set for another lengthy ban? (Merged threads)

Posted by Old Frightful on 16 September 2014 - 04:23 PM



Time to move on, let's see him get his head down.

:ohmy:

 

A tad unfortunate, if I may say so.  :blink:




#2995668 McDermott Digs at Hull Fans

Posted by Old Frightful on 15 September 2014 - 07:02 AM

I remember Brian McDermott being annoyed by a comment by the Wigan coach saying a Leeds player should be given a suspension from an incident in a game that didn't involve Wigan but a game involving Wigan was approaching and they would have a key man missing.Now that is fair comment from Mac

 

"Well that settles it than that statement will certainly stand up in a court of law"
