Doomed we are all doomed. Nothing more sums up This forum then the two threads on the cross code forum. One says RU is in trouble as its a rigid game and has lost all flair. Tell that to the 8 million that watched Eng v Wales.
Then we have this. The question I would like to ask is where would we be without summer rugby. I dont know. I do know that winter rugby at shedding was bloody cold.
Regarding the imminent death of RU. Please realise it's the event not the sport. All about the boys meeting up and getting plastered. It could be the worse game in memory, people arent bothered they have a good time and get drunk.
My god you really and I mean really can't compare any code of Rugby to that cheating, over paid, over hyped, bore feast of a sport called football. By the way the Wigan v Brisbane was a turgid mistake ridden boreathon. It seems in games now all teams set up for is the kick to the corner for the big lad on the wing to jump for.
Lot of whining and complaining on this forum. I though feel lucky and privileged to watch and enjoy our great game.So many people I know arent even football fans they are fans of a club and normally never go and actually watch them.
Very simple.UKIP is a party of blame. Its not your fault it's not our fault it's their fault. Doesn't matter who "they" are. No party apart from the greens are saying to people "take responsibility".
One other point you don't get a choice where your born. If at one time you had an empire that covered a 3rd of the world's land mass and also force those people to fight in your European slaughter house. Then what can you really expect.
Stop blaming refs. We had a chance to win and blew it. They were for the taking and again we couldnt finish it off. One of the reasons why i cant stand football is when managers blame officals rather than their own players. " the ref was awful that was a definite pen" rather than "our striker missed ten chances today" the main point of the game for me was when Burgess dropped the ball after the 2nd tackle and when burgess passed when he was 5 ft from the line.
