#3127917 23 May: Catalans Dragons v Wigan Warriors KO 6pm (TV)

Posted by stevereed100 on 23 May 2015 - 05:55 PM

We might see some humilility from Wigan now. Or was it "how Catalans managed the Ref".

Wigan have too often been the big team bullies delighting in stuffing weakened teams but for many seasons now they have not been unbeatable.

Out of the Cup before the quarter finals and droppin down the League,how sad.

 

I say all this quietly.

Season ticket value for money, Play off game usually on Telly, save a few quid and still see the game??



Am I just too old?

The chance to see my own team live, be it cup or league, outweighs any issue about sky for free. Anyone who cannot afford a cup ticket probably cannot afford a sky subscription.

At 62 I still feel that being there supporting my team contributes to the result and being involved at the game beats watching the tv....I can always do that later to see how we were robbed!

Sorry for using Wigan as my example but how a regular gate of 13000 becomes 4000 when they play in the cup and move across the road beats me. Makes me feel those "fans" do not deserve success, they certainly don't appreciate it. Expect at least 7000 at the KC Lightstream v Catalans despite the difficulties of travel for the away fans and at least 10000 for Leeds across the river.....if we are allowed to play at different times I will be at both.

Think Rovers v Catalan should be a good game, must have been sthg like 70 points a game so far in the 2 league games. Plus both teams are big scorers in other games.

Why this pessimism about Hull? The dream final is a distinct possibility.....lets have this 1980 jibe settled once and for all and lets see if Hull can actually win at Wembley. Thats the only way any team from Hull can get a trophy in London.


#3121198 hull fc shirt!

Posted by stevereed100 on 11 May 2015 - 02:53 PM

Yes I think it was a great idea but asking too much to list every player who ever played in history of 150 years. Rovers stuck to the 15 who played at Wembley in 1980!

I would have been proud to wear that shirt but memories of the famous Black and White remain. Inherited Clives jockstrap...big balls to fill....free entry to Rovers and City....hitting Steve Pitchford...being abused playing for Hull at Craven Park by those I sat alongside for years...good memories. Probably best of all playing alongside Tony Banham, never a dull moment...oh and Don Robson.


#3115638 1 May: Wigan Warriors v Hull KR KO 8pm (TV)

Campese asking for a release from his contract due to personal reasons. Heard this at Hull u19's derby today!!!!

 

Must be true then.

 

When Rovers withdrew Lunt Campese Tilse and Larroyer to add to Mantellato (Aussie wedding) and the existing injuries it was obvious that they were not expecting to win so took a safety first approach. To lose 60 nil at Wigan after a short turnround was disappointing but was only 2 points lost. The test is Wakefield at home on Thursday and the Wigan cuptie the following Friday,a far more important one off game than Fridays. 

 

Why play the cup game on a Friday night (A 2pm set off on a working day to make sure covered for the usual Friday afternoon/evening accidents and road closures is unreasonable. Pity Wigan cannot even play the game on their own ground,perhaps by default it should have been changed to Hull as a penalty for not being big enough to have their own ground available.) 

 

Having beaten Hull Saints Wigan Huddersfield and Catalans so far this season we can clearly knock over the other top 8 teams.

 

Friday nights in Lancashire for Hull and Rovers are killers for crowd support especially after up to 1000 have spent up in Perpignan. I got back to Cardiff at midnight on Wednesday so a SKY game in Wigan was never an option.

Thought this was cancelled due to lack of interest.....or was it interested players? Or given both teams declining attendances, interested fans.

What a farce...


#2954808 Five men who could be next Hull KR boss

Posted by stevereed100 on 04 July 2014 - 09:12 PM

Radford is very popular in east hull, his bar is a meeting point for rovers away trips.

But as he is contracted to Hull we have always honoured the sanctity of the contract. Have heard Paul Cooke may be available?

And of course if we took Radford it would leave Hull in trouble, nobody would want that job after years of failing.

Posted by stevereed100 on 03 July 2014 - 10:07 PM

Blimey, that sentence strikes fear into the hearts and minds of RL fans over the world I'm sure



These Cas fans are getting very cocky and in danger of losing the support as 2cnd favourite team.

Irony wasted on you?


#2951274 Just to ask a question, do fans really want to change much?

Posted by stevereed100 on 28 June 2014 - 08:50 PM

Revert to obstruction as it was before, scrap video replay or introduce into all matches, introduce 2 refs as in NRL, require refs to state a decision b4 review, review the whole disciplinary process.....I have watched the game for 53 years and have never been so depressed about watching the games. Admire the players and teams but the game is being killed off by a combination of these issues.

Ponterover school playground....


Do not believe the word is in general usage, whether by kids or by people who have grown up. But if you are in touch with the youth then all you are doing is illustrating the need for education and discipline in this subject.

Having read the bigoted views being expressed in droves on facebook I am rapidly losing faith in the RL community.

This incident has shown how far we are from being civilised.

Ponterover writes:

As for the incident itself, IF it was directed at Mr Childs and IF he is homosexual, then clearly some form of punishment is required, but 5 games is totally ridiculous.

If it wasn't and he isn't then presumably carry on regardless!


Totally ridiculous.......this illustrates why this issue needed a full debate.

Ponterover you just don't get it do you.


#2942814 Peacock Escapes Ban

Posted by stevereed100 on 11 June 2014 - 08:49 AM

Peacock has been built into a demigod over the last 2 years. He has abused refs and thrown more than the odd punch . In this game he was sin binned when he could have been sent off, played on the side that was almost second best to Leigh and still given man of the match.

No wonder the Disciplinary Committee let him off. His actions on tv were so blatant he had to be charged but nobody, including the ref, had the integrity to deal with him according to the rules.

Taking previous good behaviour into account...lol.


#2942694 Peacock Escapes Ban

Posted by stevereed100 on 10 June 2014 - 09:45 PM

What a surprise....Carney Poore and others must wish they had his charm . No ban and Man of Match on the day. The RLF Disciplinary process really is a joke as Hudgell and Pearson have stated.

Weyman gets a 2 game ban one week and on appeal is cleared...

Peacock retaliated and threw at least 3 violent punches and was charged. No ban.....unbelievable.
