#3099547 2/3 Apr: The Super League Match Thread (Easter Part One)

Posted by Mistress_Marlowe on 03 April 2015 - 10:13 AM

Well, my prediction was spot on. The bookies were giving money away making that shower favourites.

Can't understand the criticism directed at Pryce, the effort he put in should embarrass the rest of the team.

Apart from Newcastle, where travel and accommodation is already sorted, I will not attend another game whilst that useless tw@ Lee Radford is coach at Hull FC. If Adam Pearson doesn't act now, the only people at home games will be season ticket holders, and plenty of those will have to think about whether or not to bother attending.

I didn't realise how much of a ball and chain a season pass is until I gave it up. I really thought I'd miss it, but I have had no regrets so far. It's like a huge black cloud has gone from above my head and it's liberating. I still care about the club, but I dont take it to heart like I used to. When the club are prepared to put in some proper investment in to the coaching and management team, I'll reinvest my time. Until then, I'm not going to be a slave to a fixture list.

#2987039 Is Zak Hardaker set for another lengthy ban? (Merged threads)

Posted by Mistress_Marlowe on 02 September 2014 - 12:13 PM

I've seen the video and it looks conclusive. I hope the RFL make an example of him; no amount of joking on twitter after the event that both players 'enjoy the banter' mitigates the fact that this goes against the Respect code.

Lee Richardson's honesty seemed to upset one or two Rovers fans.

Colin made my day!

#2961892 could fans run a club

Posted by Mistress_Marlowe on 19 July 2014 - 09:31 PM

They offered me HKR, but then this old geezer with a beard and a pointly hat gave me a good price on these magic beans.... ;)

This is exactly what happened to Pearson. He ate the beans that the wizened man gave him, then bought Hull FC. Three days later he woke up in hospital with a monster headache and a huge black hole in his bank balance.

The moral of the story: don't eat the magic beans.

#2926439 oh eck! Hull Squad for Wigan

Posted by Mistress_Marlowe on 08 May 2014 - 07:31 PM

Don't we have 8 out?
Anyway, FC are a good side, and likely to be fired up after last week's switching off. I expect a good, close game.


Fired up? Radford's head is so full of wood the only way there's going to be any fire is if someone drops a match on his head.

Today's game was so dull, that I found a spelling mistake in an advert on the big screen. :(

#2898280 Koukash confirms wife’s interest in purchasing Bulls

Posted by Mistress_Marlowe on 13 March 2014 - 08:20 AM

1. Beggars can't be choosers. 2. Didn't Hetherington and his sister both have interests in Hull and Leeds without much fuss being made. 3. If there are to be shenanigans from this arrangement, I hope Dr Khoukash has more success making his wife do what he wants I do.4. A woman owner would be an interesting development and, if Sally Bolton is any guide, a successful one.

2. Why be offensive in relation to Gary and Kath?

3. She is married to the man, not dangling from strings held by him. Also, The Married Women's Property Act of 1893 saw to it that the club will belong to Mrs K and her property will remain her own. No more do we, or our property, belong to our husband once marriage has commenced, except in the psyche of the patriarchy.

4. Good on Sally Bolton for proving to you that perhaps women are capable of operating in a man's world. Welcome to 2014.

#2897873 History of this forum?

Posted by Mistress_Marlowe on 12 March 2014 - 01:26 PM

It's true, I am Mistress Marlowe.


It feels great to get that off my chest after all those years.


How annoying is our hair? We can't seem to do anything with it these days.




Will the real William Shakespear please stand up?


That old chestnut! Myth and nonsense!

#2895915 Rugby League’s first-ever Level 3 female coach

Posted by Mistress_Marlowe on 09 March 2014 - 05:46 PM

Great news. Really pleased that another barrier has been breached.

#2852770 Helen Skelton

Posted by Mistress_Marlowe on 15 December 2013 - 02:50 PM

Although I just asked our lass and she couldn't tell me, despite having been there twice. Women hey!

Yes, because all women are incapable of remembering where they've been. There's a similar phenomenon that affects men; they all claim to have visited a woman's clitoris but never seem to remember how get there.

Before anyone starts, no, I don't believe that. But perhaps the everyday sexism on this forum needs to start coming from the few women left on here to get you blokes to stop making such outdated remarks.

#2850643 We need our own stadium

Posted by Mistress_Marlowe on 10 December 2013 - 11:17 PM

Seriously, what would be the advantages over Wembley? To build our own stadium of anything like the required size would cost an amount that the game would be paying back over all of our lifetimes - never mind the ongoing maintenance.

I think most sporting organisations are waking up to the fact that the 'Big White Elephant' model is now way since out of fashion. The good news for RL is that our national ground has already been built, more than fulfils our needs and was paid for by someone else. We should rejoice in what a good deal we got for ourselves. Meanwhile, as Manchester United slide back into the pack as far as football is concerned, they'll need us more rather than less.


There are better things for The RFL to be spending money on than a stadium that will be barely used. The RLWC proved we don't need one. Take the game to the people and they will come.

#2847623 Why the Hull clubs must merge

Posted by Mistress_Marlowe on 05 December 2013 - 08:52 AM

7 miles between Hull and Hull KR.
8 between Cas and Wakey.
10 between Leeds and Bradford.

How many miles before we say a club is far enough from another and has a right to exist?

150 years of rugby in Hull says that a merger in Hull would never work. 2015 will give you all the evidence you need, so watch this space.

#2826784 I'm on about it again

Posted by Mistress_Marlowe on 04 November 2013 - 11:24 PM

I sat at Craven Park tonight in four layers of clothing and still ended up shivering. If RL were a winter game I'd bean armchair supporter.

#2802829 RLWC ticket sales (merged, including selling tix for final)

Posted by Mistress_Marlowe on 05 October 2013 - 02:13 AM

I'm sure that I read some time ago that the Fiji game at Rochdale had sold loads of tickets largely on the back of their Fiji connections. Anyone know if there is actually any truth behind this?

Yes, it's true. They've done really well in pushing the game and received a heritage lottery grant for a programme of heritage events, many of which emphasised their connection with Fiji.
