#3081195 Total Solar Eclipse on March 20th...

Posted by Old Frightful on 01 March 2015 - 07:58 PM

The one I remember in (August?) 1999 was pretty ###### considering the hype about it..I watched it in Lancashire.

In Lancashire?

 

That was just another cloud.




#3080881 28 Feb: Salford Red Devils v Hull FC KO 7.30pm

Your fellow supporter was being smug off the back of the performance of the St Helens team 2 weeks prior.  There was no need for it.

 

Hopefully you can draw some comfort from your expectation that we won't win anymore matches due to the oppositions ineptness.

I don't think I said that exactly but if that was what you inferred from my remarks then apologies.

 

If I drew any comfort from last night's result it was seeing Salford climb up the league table, automatically edging our near neighbours closer to the foot of the table.

 

So "Well done Salford!"  :biggrin:

Probably all went wrong when we told his agent we were looking to add a bit of speed.

The decisions made by some players in this game are astonishing.

Wilkin must have some very tasty pictures of KC

It does look nice at night with the floodlights on.

He played on the wing for us against Wire.

 

It's only fair that the game is declared null and void and is replayed.




#3077254 If Samuel L Jackson had said...

Posted by Old Frightful on 23 February 2015 - 08:16 AM

On seeing Nathan Brown at the match last night "Is that Tony Rae in the crowd there, just in front of Russell Crowe...well, if it isn't it's somebody doing an impression of him", would Twitter have received accusations of "casual racism", "baldism" or whatever?

Hemmings clearly thought Russell Crowe's acting pal, who looked and dressed somewhat like Samuel L Jackson, may well have been him. Was it something in the way it was said?

Somebody stated on Twitter "If it needs explaining then that says it all". Well, unfortunately I think I need it explaining. It sounded like a genuine mix up by Hemmings to me, perhaps I'm just a bit dim.

Any help appreciated and please tread as carefully as you can.

Samuel L Jackson
Eddie Hemmings

Both trending. Oops.

Anybody looking for "racism" in what Hemmings said needs to have a serious look at themselves.

Ridiculous.

Clarke is going well on the "Wiganometer" tonight.

Talking of players who spent time in the career doldrums, it looks like Willie Mason has turned his game around. For now, anyway.

That's hardly fair.

 

He only played 6 games for Hull KR.

after last nights debacle, i'll guarantee someone is binned or sent off.

Should think so too!

 

Dirty Wigan bleeders.




#3075731 20 Feb: WCS: Warrington Wolves v St George Illawarra Dragons KO 8pm (TV)

Posted by Old Frightful on 21 February 2015 - 08:44 AM

I think both high tackles should have been punished with yellow cards. They both could have resulted in serious injury but both were reaction tackles caused by the defender being hopelessly wrong footed by the ball carrier. Both offenders were immediately contrite and knew they were in trouble. For those comparing these incidents to the Ah Van one well, in his case it could be argued that there might have been intent, there clearly was none last night in either, imo.

 

Thankfully, "tackles" like last night's are reasonably rare these days, perhaps with mandatory sin binning we may be able to make them rarer. But again, they were reaction tackles when instinct takes over, and that sort of thing must be difficult to control.

 

Regarding the game itself, I thought St George/Illawarra were just about worthy winners. They made, I think, fewer errors than Wire and generally looked to have more composure. Higham and O'Brian's (was it?) knock ons at the play the ball summed up the game for me. Still, in O'Brian's they scored the best try of the game but the Oz full back won't want to see it too often, he did nowt nor summat.

 

Great game and let's hope the other two are as good.

The first and last time I watch that show.

Excruciatingly painful.

Never mind all this meaningless talk about a RL game.
