People still saying he failed, when quite clearly he didn't.

 

The RU fraternity are utterly deluded..

 

They use two words all the time that wind me up like a coiled spring - "Technical" and "Intelligence"

 

They maintain you need both to play the game.

 

Rollocks

 

"Technical" - translates to "Out of Play"

 

"Intelligence" - translates to "Boring"

 

Hence "Failed" translates to "cannot sink low enough"

Get rid of Nigel Wood and follow a proper recruitment process to replace him and any other "adminstrator" who is not upto the job.


In Topic: 24 Sept: Super 8s - St Helens v Warrington Wolves KO 8pm (TV)

If there was 1 less in the crowd and you stayed at home, there would at least be some benefits you miserable sod.

 

Last nights game was brilliant. For the neutral it showed no matter what Saints, the Ref or the VR put in their way, Wire still won. The last try really having significance in the story of 1 mans career in an 80 minute game.

 

Sometimes a game of RL can throw up unexpected stories that catch your attention and sometimes all the handwringing and criticism, for once thank God, cannot overshadow it.

 

Well said lad.. I watched on TV and enjoyed the game - and by that I mean all the aspects...

 

Its only the constant inane negativity from the two numpties who spoil it..

 

The reason the VR was introduced was to ensure correct decisions are made - and in the main - it works and works well. (Not saying its error free - but inevitable human errors will happen)

 

If it so happens that a game contains a higher than average number of decisions requiring use of the tech - then so be it - the playing time remains at 80 minutes regardless.

 

The moan rate seems to be going up and up - so I will end on a positive note...

 

Sky's use of Terry O'Connor for interviews is a stroke of genius - he is brillaint at connecting with the players/coaches - so relaxed and humourous - great viewing.

And the bit with John Wells and a player at the end - a fantastic insight every time..

 

Can't wait for tonights game - VR decisions or no VR decisions!

Bulls fan who suffered cardiac arrest during game v Leigh at Odsal set to thank heroes who saved his life

I was sat just a few rows back in the stand when this happened, so I'm really glad to hear the chap has made a full recovery.

 

Me too! The speed at which they all worked was amazing.. A real eye opener..

 

And a great outcome too..


In Topic: Hunslet Relegated

22 September 2015 - 08:15 AM

I think we'll still be in the Championship next season and I'll miss going away to Hunslet. Their fans are more than a credit to their club; they are a credit to the game.

 

True!

 

We took the hospitality package for our visit and sat with some of the people who run the club.

 

Very welcoming, friendly and made our day a pleasure..

 

Interestingly, we were given an insight into the budget that the club runs on - it caused a few gasps of amazement (by how low it is)

 

Only TWO people are on full time wages - the rest of the work to run the club and keep it going is provided on a volunteer basis by people who dedicate their time for nothing. Those who are paid are paid as part-timers - IE all the players and support staff....

 

So having read the usual RL cynical, sniping, spiteful posts so far - bear in mind just how hard it is to run a club on this basis - and spare a thought for those who dedicate their time to keep it in existance.

 

I'm sure they are grateful for any help they get from Leeds no matter what form it takes.
