#2943435 Fev make bid for Huddersfield Big 3

Posted by RLDave on 12 June 2014 - 12:58 PM

I can only imagine Huddersfield replied back with a simple "lol!".

#2940896 People pay to watch a game and its players, not its officials......

  • Sick of Stuart Cummins explaining rules I already know

He's quite a pointless addition to the commentary I think. It's embarrasing when the ref expert even gets the calls wrong during a game. I remember during a game (I can't remember which) and there was a brilliant bit of play which I think lead to a try and his response was "you've got to credit the referee there". I know he obviously has a huge interest in the refs but surely nobody watching is bothered enough to want to credit the refs for what the players produced.

Didn't know about this programme, thanks for the heads up. It's a good job I read this when I did as it expires from Sky On Demand in 2020.

It won't come back to bite you. Salford will loan Locke to Cas for the season.

Don't blame him. I think Briscoe should've played back up to BJB.

#2917952 Jon Wells and Brian Carney and thr lcd screen

Posted by RLDave on 18 April 2014 - 06:49 AM

Yep, it's good. Even better when Brian isn't interrupting Jon all the time! I thought the two of them along with Phil Clarke did a very good job on Boots n All this week too.

#2917882 Danny Brough and Steve McNamara

Posted by RLDave on 17 April 2014 - 09:00 PM

Dare I say, fair play to McNamara for giving him plenty of notice to find another team for the WC?

I hold a grudge against that guy, I don't mind telling you. Johnson I mean.

Thinking about it, he'd probably be belting on Back Chat!

#2905401 Storm v Newcastle - R3 Game - Alex McKinnon Injury News & Discussion ......

Posted by RLDave on 25 March 2014 - 08:36 AM

Still I admire Smith as a footballer , I just think he should have kept his mouth shut.

Absolutely agree. How many times did the ref have to tell him to wait until the injured player was dealt with until they'd talk about it further, but Smith wouldn't drop it. Very poor conduct I thought.

Good game apart from that, awful discipline by the Knights though.

#2899015 Nigel Wood hits back at critics in this month's Rugby League World

Posted by RLDave on 14 March 2014 - 11:51 AM

Hope you grilled him on his pathetic and lethargic efforts to nail down dates for the 2014 4N. It is mid-March for heaven's sake.

Why not blame the Aussies? It's their tournement this year

#2882283 Sam Burgess (merged threads)

Posted by RLDave on 17 February 2014 - 10:06 AM

I'm with some others on here, I'm disappointed he's going as I think he could have become one of the all time great players, but when he's gone I won't care about him. Don't wish him bad luck or anything I just don't care whether he does well or not as I won't be watching to find out

The same here. He's my favourite player (if it's not too childish to say that), so I certainly don't wish him bad luck, but I couldn't care less how he goes on in Union.

Posted by RLDave on 17 February 2014 - 10:02 AM

What a shame. I was looking forward to seeing Burgess become a Rugby League great and captain England in the future to probable success (at least I think we're on our way). On the plus side, I'm sure Rugby League will once again produce a champion player of his calibre for Union to be jealous of.

#2871759 Sky Sports - New TV Deal (Merged Threads)

Posted by RLDave on 30 January 2014 - 10:27 AM

So the doom mongers are wrong again;

No one will turn up for the World Cup,it will be a disaster,the marketing is a disaster - wrong.
There won't be a main sponsor for Super League,the RFL are in crisis - wrong.
Sky Sports have no interest in rugby league,I know because someone in the pub told me - wrong.

Now they will be running around for something else.It's not enough,it should have been more,I could have done better,tickets are too expensive,tickets are too cheap,sack someone,anyone,I don't care,I'm just jealous other people do better than me!!

Well done to the RFL.

Well said
