  1. Past hour
  2. Of course people can get into sports after seeing them once, it happens all the time. It pretty much happened to me. Just as, conversely, if someone watches one game of a sport and it's a terrible one, they will be put off and unlikely to follow it up.
  3. No, it really won't. Because for every drama queen flapping about stuff on social media, there's a dozen or more people just getting on with life. I find your lack of faith disturbing. Shakespeare? Wasn't he helped by an EU grant? How *did* we do anything before the EU?
  4. JOHN Kear admits the favourites tag weighed heavily on the Bulls during their year in League One. View the full article
  5. Denton Rovers RLFC

    New Grounds.

    It looks pap, it's just another two tier box stand, there's nothing to rave about it aesthetically, it'll no doubt eventually pay for itself however.
  6. Today
  7. £440 for an irregular number plate or a slap on the wrist fine for killing a cyclist or pedestrian IF the police/CPS even bring charges. No wonder no-one has respect for the police anymore. Daily Fail is worse than the Sun
  8. Thanks I have read it and replied. I also read a helpful BBC article. It suggested that the Transition Period is a key factor?
  9. Thanks I have read it. Isn't the key the Transition Period?

    The all-new-ish Brexit Thread

    This royal throne of kings, this sceptred isle, This earth of majesty, this seat of Mars, This other Eden, demi-paradise, This fortress built by Nature for herself Against infection and the hand of war, This happy breed of men, this little world, This precious stone set in the silver sea, Which serves it in the office of a wall Or as a moat defensive to a house, Against the envy of less happier lands,-- This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England. William Shakespeare, "King Richard II", Act 2 scene 1 I'm guessing the map on your wall is mainly pink. Little Englanders: living in a fantasy world where Britannia still rules the waves. Our influence and relevance in the world is only maintained because we've established ourselves in comfortable and powerful seats at the major world bodies, UN, NATO, EU. Often with powers of veto. Our relationship with the US is based on our position as a friendly voice with influence on the EU. Why would we want to give up a good chunk of that significant influence on world affairs? What are we getting in return? The UK outside the EU will slowly become an irrelevance. A septic isle.
  11. What could these grass roots guys teach them? They clearly don't have any winning formula, if they did they wouldn't still be at the bottom of the sporting food chain.

    Tom Burgess Hints at return to Super League

    Won't be that soon !
  13. How long did it take you to read "'s the best ever thing" and "May is rubbish" ?
  14. Wholly Trinity

    New Grounds.

    Just checked, and both are still in Wakefield Metropolitan District, so don't hold your breath. 😖
  15. Oh good that's at least 34 threads on why NY is unfair and an uneven playing fields for Cleckhedmondbridge Rovers and 456, 675, 894 more just from Parky alone, can't wait! Will all of you TWP/ NY , sycophants and dreamers please remember not to shoot the messenger .....again!

    New York RL - The Full 80 Minutes

    People have been ragging on Kyokushin for this and other comments, but I've made almost identical comments on here and elsewhere before. Yes, RL has limited tackles and football has limited down, but I do think that's about the point where RL stops being MORE like football than RU. For starters, with that very same rule, if you gain ten yards, you get a new set of downs, meaning you can control possession through your play, and can hold onto the ball until you score unless the other team can take it. Both FB and RU can be slow, strategic, sometimes a low scoring defensive affair, etc. People don't give American audiences enough credit for being able to understand and appreciate it. Kayakman, I'm usually on your side, but I think you're being a bit aggressive overall. He makes some fair point that I don't think is just trolling.
  18. So patriotism is a synonym for idiocy now then? And apparently it's just us being unreasoning scaredycats that's causing all our problems and anxiety "Irrational fear is all that stands in the way of Britain restoring its sovereignty and reclaiming control of its borders. This is the logical conclusion of former Chancellor of the Exchequer Norman Lamont’s plea in the Telegraph for the Government’s scaremongering about the World Trade Organisation ‘option’ to come to an end. This is why. First the Treasury’s (Project Fear) forecasts were wrong before; none has come anywhere near the truth: ‘Since those forecasts, the average British family has remained just as well off and the UK economy has grown by 3.9 per cent. There has been no recession, and taxes have been cut and spending increased." So obviously this is not fake news or biased in any way, it's just everyone else! For those who suspect I might make these quotes up .... I begin to understand how the thought process works on the other side of the coin, why a compromise was never an option, and where some on here find their main arguments. We live in Trump world.

    The all-new-ish Brexit Thread

    The 14.4 Saintslass was talking about is on page 320 (I think)
  22. He deliberately broke the law by driving a vehicle not displaying a number plate. He then made his position worse by refusing to accept a fixed penalty. Front and rear number plates are a legal requirement for a number of very good road safety and licencing reasons. I used to work for DVLA and have seen what people without number plates do on the road, it changes driving behaviour and people die so I have absolutely no sympathy for him. The fact that the Daily Nazi picked up on this story is his fault entirely as he committed a criminal offence.
  23. I am looking on my phone but I can't find it. I found the 14.1 to 14.3. Is it something that might make me change my mind? ☺
  24. The Future is League

    Tom Burgess Hints at return to Super League

    Probably keeping his options open, but wont have any trouble finding a NRL club if Souths unload him, but i can't see that happening for a while at least
  25. What are the odds that the new owners will utilise the slash'n'burn reduction technique, as seen in local radio in recent decades? Budgets slashed to the bone, lots of "shared content", lots of "user-sourced input", lots of redundancies among professional staff. It may be the only way that the group can survive, while having to accept losses in individuality, quality and independence. That may be the only option to stave off oblivion for a few more years, at least. But it'll also hasten the end at the same time.
  26. RL does what Sky says

    History of Oldham Amateur District League

    Surely you don't have to actually see Scott Naylor in person to let him know of a potential player. I am not involved with any particular local club but if ever I saw a player who I thought might be useful to Oldham then I would just phone or contact the club in some other way to let them know. Surely only if they are good enough for a Super League club to want them. OK, Oldham and others teams in a similar position might not be able to get the top-class players but there are still plenty of others who are a little bit further down the line but who might be OK for teams such as Oldham etc.
  27. I remember at least 10 years ago hearing that they were struggling as I knew a couple of lads who worked for them. But it's nothing new and print has been struggling big time since the early 2000's - in fact it's why I got out.
