#2995668 McDermott Digs at Hull Fans

Posted by Old Frightful on Yesterday, 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"




#2995365 McDermott Digs at Hull Fans

Deary me.

 

A bit of booing to both Briscoe and Hardaker could hardly be classed as "abuse", I notice he doesn't call the booing of Hardaker "abuse"...I wonder why that is?

 

And I've never heard anti semetic chants aimed at Leeds fans either, however, I've heard the hilarious "You're going down with your trawlers" chants from the Leeds' fans.

 

Let's not continue with this, it does nobody any good and brings up unnecessary bitterness.

 

McDermott would have been wiser not to pass comment, he should show more class than that, I wonder why he did.

 

 




#2995344 14/09/14 - Wakefield Trinity Wildcats v Hull KR KO 3pm

The Hull clique as usual dominate a Rovers topic.

HKR 9th in league table even after playing Hull 3 times....my lips are sealed.

Hi Steve, nice to hear from you again.

 

You'll notice I kept on with the updates even though Rovers were winning handsomely. And Ullman and myself simply discussed the game, the possible outcome and the two teams involved. You don't seem to grasp the difference here, we discuss Rovers on a Rovers match thread, certain Hull KR posters on here discuss Hull FC on...a Rovers match thread.

 

It's not our fault this thread didn't attract much attention from the Rovers' fans.

I think everyone was trying to blow him over the line but he just didn't have the legs! Great story to tell though!

:ohmy: I had no idea he was that popular amongst his team mates.... :blink:




#2994445 Richard Horne

Posted by Old Frightful on 13 September 2014 - 06:22 AM

As I posted in the Hull v Leeds game thread, both teams lined up to applaud him onto the pitch at the start of the match last night and all the Leeds' fans, to their credit, stood and applauded him as much as the home fans did.

 

Just Carl Ablett letting the side down really, Horne made a 60m break and was set to score before Ablett ankle tapped him and the opportunity was lost.

 

Miserable party pooping bleeder.  :biggrin:

 

I think Ullman once posted that having Horne on the pitch was like having an extra forward with the amount of tackling he did, he was exceptionally strong for his build and still fairly pacey in spite of the injury setbacks and the diabetes illness he suffered, as others have alluded to.

 

Just about the perfect send off for him last night, I understand he'll be working with some of the club's young up and coming players over the next few seasons, his experience will help them along nicely, I imagine.




#2993578 Is Zak Hardaker set for another lengthy ban? (Merged threads)

Posted by Old Frightful on 11 September 2014 - 10:38 PM

If you want to make it out that way and ignore your poor analysis of the Dorn/Sinfield altercation then fine, don't deal with the points I make..........

Just hit me with a one-liner because you have got nothing else.

That's an old frightful tactic, some smart ass comment and he's won the day 12,841 times in his own head!!

Wtf are you on about?

I hardly ever get involved in arguments on here so rarely feel like I've won the day.

Like plenty of others I usually post to try and inject a bit of humour for mild entertainment.

You however, seem to persist in dragging out argiments, going round in circles, and eventually grinding folk down until they can't be bothered any more.

Oh, and it's boring.

(That last bit was my smart ass comment and, although you can't see me, I'm prancing around like I've won for the whateverteenth time it is, although it's just in my head.)

Quality posts from the Wigan boys defending McIlorum.

 

I couldn't help but notice O'Loughlin wandering over to Bentham as he was putting the incident on report. He probably asked "What's the problem, I never get penalised for that and I do it all the time."

 

Cant argue with him if he did.

Bit of a surprise McIlorum starting to get involved.

Pettybourne gets sin binned for being punched twice.

Wood should be off for good.


#2993266 Palestinian RL player trains with Salford Red Devils

Posted by Old Frightful on 11 September 2014 - 06:09 PM

Would he feel at home playing in one of Paul Gascoigne's old kits?

 

(Apologies in advance.)




#2993251 Is Zak Hardaker set for another lengthy ban? (Merged threads)

Posted by Old Frightful on 11 September 2014 - 05:58 PM

quite

although the question remains why would Hardaker if as you say was provoked would use homophobia as a channel for his anger

There's the obvious reason, I suppose.




#2992230 Magic Weekend moves to Newcastle for 2015

Posted by Old Frightful on 10 September 2014 - 12:22 PM

I imagine Gateshead will be playing Hull KR at the Magic Weekend, same as every year...

Already booked a few rooms for Fri/Sat nights in a fleapit in Gateshead, well it would seem rude not to.

 

As I said to Roy, it'll feel like going home.... B)

#2991692 Sky Sports forced to apologise to St Helens and their fans

Posted by Old Frightful on 09 September 2014 - 04:44 PM

Sky could always offer to pay for Nathan Brown and Paul Wellens to pop across to France on Saturday, should Saints lose at Hudds on Friday.

 

They could have a permanent camera on them holding the LLS between them sitting at the Stade Gilbert Brutus, watching the game.

 

Then, if Catalans win, Messers Brown and Wellens can have their moment dancing around holding the shield aloft.

 

If Cas win however, they could send Daryl Powell and the Tigers' mascots to try and get the LLS from them and have a great brawl if necessary.




#2991684 Wembley pain can shape my future, says Sneyd

And he signs for Hull FC?

 

A certain amount of irony here.
