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.

#2954265 Hull KR sack Sandercock (merged threads)

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.

So sad that some on here are showing a lack of empathy for the issue and trying to be clever as Hardaker apologist.

The whole issue should have been done and dusted last Tuesday at the Disciplinary Meeting and the RLs stance would have been clear and restated.

I feel proud of the position taken by several posts . Others should be ashamed but that is probably a forlorn hope.

Whoever the comment was aimed at is irrelevant. The use of the word as a term of abuse in an aggressive situation is clearly extremely offensive and immature.
Apparently within earshot were others to whom it may have been aimed who have now been outed whether they liked it or not.

My comment re growing up relates to the persistent nature of Hardakers behaviour. Thrown out of a World Cup squad mid competion shows his regard for his fortune.

My real issue is that he played against Leigh when any other admitted offence would have led to an immediate ban.

And use of racial, homophobic etc abuse can be as hurtful as physical injury.

And Squithy I am no pal of yours, that sounded to me like you were being aggressive and very irrational.

Perhaps some people do need to grow up!

#2941197 Wigan Warriors v Castleford Tigers RL Cup 1/4 Final 7/6/2014 KO 2.30 BBC 1

Posted by stevereed100 on 08 June 2014 - 12:12 PM

Presumably the "charge down " rule is applied when a player seeks to charge down a kick. If as stated earlier the player is rooted to the spot and stretches to the side to "intercept" the ball it is a knock on, in todays games whether or not it goes backwards or forwards.


Thaler had the benefit of the video to see that Bowen was rooted to the spot, Siverwood did not so might have thought it a chargedown.


From his running commentary Thaler was blinded by his prejudgement that it was charged down. He then referred to the rising ball to justify his decision.


Bowen seems to lead a charmed life with his head high tackling and blatant shoulder charge yesterday.

#2940690 Wigan Warriors v Castleford Tigers RL Cup 1/4 Final 7/6/2014 KO 2.30 BBC 1

Posted by stevereed100 on 07 June 2014 - 02:05 PM

Shoulder charge...blatant.

Obstruction no way....Silverwood should have just given it.

Even Thalers words tell you he is looking to not give it.

Without vr he would have given obstruction anyway because the refs are obsessed.

#2940505 And just as Zak was getting his act together

Posted by stevereed100 on 07 June 2014 - 07:30 AM

So why did he play last night?

The RFL and Leeds should have acted immediately.

What is there to debate?

#2938033 01/06/2014 - Castleford Tigers v Hull Kingston Rovers KO 3.30pm

Posted by stevereed100 on 02 June 2014 - 07:29 AM

I hope Stevereed enjoyed his day

Loved it. The old fashioned atmosphere of an almost full ground stood on halfway with a smattering of Cas fans doggedly retaining their normal position despite being overwhelmed by the Rovers hordes. Allows healthy debate about the merits of Tim Roby and Mr Childs.

Rovers fell apart after some dubious decisions, Rovers first try ruled out for obstruction, something noone else saw bar the Video Ref.....sorry, there wasn't one. Weyman sent off for congratulating Roby on a good game.

Roll on Warrington in a fortnight, onwards and upwards.
