With respect, you said it was typical of "English" arrogance, which is a massive generalisation. English people cover a very wide spectrum from very arrogant and conceited (agreed) to very humble. So "arrogance" cannot be aimed at the English as "typical". The mind-set of people who populate the top tier of the various RFU's is however likely to be much narrower than that of a whole nation. So the word arrogance can be more readily applied. I didn't say any other union had used the VC symbol. I simply pointed out that the top echelons of union have a similar type of person, no matter what country they represent. Using your own argument, has any other organisation in England or any other individual in England used the VC symbol without permission? Not that I'm aware of. Your last sentence is a contradiction. This hasn't happened in one nation. It has absolutely nothing top do with anyone outside the top echelons of the RFU. It has happened in one sport and only at the top level.
I am sure there have been Welsh, Irish and Scottish winners of the Victoria Cross so it is arrogant to co opt ot to an England only Rugby team.
In the kingdom of the moron, i think this argument would still highlight you as too stupid to hold office.
By this logic Leeds Utd are higher up than Man Utd as of today. Which i would love to be true, but sadly isnt.
You couldn't even get into the kingdom of the morons based on your logic.
If Man U were knocked out of the FA cup and Leeds U were still in the league cup if you wanted to support one of them in a cup competition you would have to follow Leeds.
Hunslet are still in the playoiffs, Leeds are not. The level of competiton is not relevant. If you want to watch playoff RL in Leeds as of Saturday one would have to follow Hunslet. there is no longer any other game in town.
