In Topic: Magic Weekend 2015 Thread

15 April 2015 - 10:38 AM

We are going to both the Summer Bash & Magic Weekend - but only because Bulls are away to London that weekend. We have always embraced and enjoyed MW regardless of location and nothing will change that..


I emailed the RFL with the suggestion that each of the weekends should have a blank fixture list for the other to encourage increased attendances to both.


IE for MW there are no Championship games and discounts are offered to season ticket holders of those clubs - and to work in reverse for Summer Bash.


Got shot down in flames....


What do you think of my idea?

That sounds very similar to what Bradford were saying over Harris.


My exact thought as I read down the thread...


Strong chance this is only the beginning of a long story - and really looking forward to the game on Saturday - would have gone over for it had it not been televised!

Signed and link sent to three others who will add to it..


What an appalling situation to be in.


Almost happened at my club when we got a very dubious owner in control - fans can do nothing but hope.


Good luck and I wish you all the best for the outcome.


As for the RFL - its a brick wall and how they "deal" with issues is a disgrace.

And just seen Eamonn McManus has agreed with me in principle..


They will fine him for that


Despite the FACT that he is exactly right - and this issue affects all clubs in all three divisions.

If not, then I would say the RFL disciplinary have some explaining to do.


Herein lays the problem.


They never answer to anyone for any of their failings.


The referee completely failed to do his job at the time the incident took place. Even after it was clearly shown on screen replay - he didnt bother to put it on report.


The subsquent punishment - hardly worth bothering and certainly no deterrent.


So much for protecting players from serious injury.


And of course nobody is going to say anything about that or they get a fine! One way traffic this is.  The RFL efectively run a Gagging Law here.


No matter how absolutely hopeless the RFL is at running various apects of the game - they answer to nobody but themselves.


Not good - not good at all.
