Hull one is nice and traditional, the Hudds one ....it might look different when you see it 'live'.

#3021873 12-Year International Schedule?

Posted by brooza on 28 October 2014 - 12:45 PM

I'd like to see a structure that allows for emerging nations to work their way into higher competitions, rather than rejig and change the rules to suit. It looks so amateur.

There currently is. They European Championships A, B and C. With the winner of A qualifying for the 4N

Interestingly, the figure last year was hampered by being on SS2 and up against Premiership Football on SSL which attracted 1.2m.

 

Considering that it would appear to be an excellent result.

Nope, I prefer my reasoning!




#3015584 Canadian team apply to join Championship 1 (merged threads)

I'm sure the only reason the NFL is successful is because the world knows the exact locations of Green Bay, Jacksonville and Buffalo.

I only know where Jacksonville is because of the Axemen!




#3015452 Canadian team apply to join Championship 1 (merged threads)

Posted by brooza on 17 October 2014 - 10:05 AM

Err, they're proposing putting a team in Championship 1. Which has teams from London, Manchester, Newcastle, Wales & Coventry in it. IME, Canadians are quite likely to have heard of some or all of those places.

Even if they haven't, they will have heard of one team that's playing: Toronto.

 

Whilst I like watching games as a neutral, I prefer watching games involving my own club




#3014505 The View From The Daily Mash

Posted by brooza on 15 October 2014 - 03:51 PM

A slightly better effort than their last one, but you can still tell it's by their RU-fan YTS boy. The giveaway is "but what kind of monster doesn’t at least try to dodge a tackle? Only a ravening beast runs straight at people on purpose." is straight from the RU cliché book.

That's kind of the point. It's a "quote" from an union player.

 

Either way, I found it amusing

It would have to be a period ban, in my mind. Otherwise he'll just sit out the Euro Championship and the preseason matches and the ban will be almost over by the time the season starts. Maybe 6 months? That will take him up to April.

What makes you think i'm a Rhinos fan? People from Leeds are known as loiners.

He never said you were, just that you're not a Wigan fan.

 

The fact that almost all of the posts you quoted and replied to were ones that mention Leeds suggests you're a Rhinos fan

League Express columnist Garry Schofield: “What a disgraceful thing to do.”

Damn, after reading that I'm starting to think that Flower didn't do anything wrong...

I can't listen to it properly. Just tuned in and out to hear some .... person..... telling the country how can he teach his daughter right from wrong when Ben Flower punches Lance Hohaia in the face.

Just tell her that doing that is wrong

Hohaia is entirely innocent in the event we are discussing, which is why I made the comment on this thread. 

 

I watched the match live and then on the TV (until 3am, saddo that I am! But I was happy). Firstly Flower took Hohaia down off the ball, then Hohaia ran after him and forearmed him (NOT elbow as some are suggesting) to the head, then Flower punched him hard enough to knock him down and out.  It was bad enough at that point.  But then Flower stands over Hohaia who is KO'd on the floor and punches him straight to the head.  That final incident is what we are speaking about in this thread and nothing that Hohaia did before that point makes him in any way responsible for that final punch.

I'm in no way defending Flower, what he did was unacceptable, but are you seriously saying that the prior events had no bearing on the second punch?

 

In which case Flower took Hohaia down unprovoked. Hohaia ran in and forearmed Flower unprovoked. Then Flower punched Hohaia unprovoked.

 

The whole sequence of events are directly linked. If Hohaia hadn't run in with the forearm, he wouldn't have been punched. If Flower hadn't taken Hohaia out off the ball, he wouldn't have been forearmed. I can't blame him for going in though, and I am in no way trying to shift blame from Flower, as he instigated the whole thing and then VASTLY overreacted and he deserves a lengthy ban, but to suggest that Hohaia is completely blameless is ludicrous.

Good to see this being thought of now!




#3002189 26/09/14 - Huddersfield Giants v Catalan Dragons KO 8pm (TV)

Posted by brooza on 25 September 2014 - 10:08 AM

Dear Garry

Stop now.

Giants are 3rd in the league and have beaten everyone bar Wire. One abberation of a night means nothing in a match that was ultimately a dead rubber anyway

If everyone ignores him, maybe he'll go away




#2997740 Scotland independence / GB / Catalans (merged threads)

Posted by brooza on 18 September 2014 - 07:49 AM

Scotland is geographically in Great Britain no matter whether it is independant or not.

Exactly.

 

They can leave the UK but can't leave GB. Unless someone turns Hadrians Wall into a trench
