    A typo surely?

    It'd keep my club running for 15 years.

    When it happens, it'll cost Argyle a million quid to buy the TM from me ha ha.

    They wouldn't even have to relocate - as Manchestorontoâ„¢ have proved...

    Man, that was funny back in 1973...

    My understanding is that it's imposed to 'incentivise' clubs to sell it hard. As far as I have seen, the number bears no relation to the potential number of sales - hence the need to sell as many as possible to offset the financial impact.

    google the Walker brothers at Ipswich Jets - revolutionary thinkers.

    Making RL Less Predictable

    The top tier needs to be on terrestrial TV/free to air more frequently. The lower tiers need a broadcast deal of their own to boost awareness. Generally speaking the game per se/laws works ok - it's exposure/profile/penetration the game needs. On a personal level, I've always thought that the video ref is a cr-@p gimmick - the game is played in real time, not at 32-frames a second stop motion. We trust the officials with 95% of the decisions that lead to scoring positions, we should extend that to what happens in the in-goal too.

    "Dale"?? How very dare you - that's the football club's nickname...

    You may not know, but clubs get 'charged' for their ticket allocation by the RFL, and then need to sell as many tickets as they can to try and get their money back. If you're thinking off going to Blackpool, please decide to -and get your tickets from Hornets asap.. Every ticket the club has left unsold is money/revenue we lose. I'm hauling my mate up from London for this one, so if you can bring at least one mate, that'd help too. Tickets this year are allocated in an 'area' of the ground rather than block/seat specific, so it's easier for everyone to get together make some noise and enjoy the day. If it's anything like last year it'll be a blast. It's a great day/weekend out, so let's try and get as many there as possible - we make plenty of noise with a few of us: let's make a racket with a few more!

    It was his smart-@rs3d comment 'well I've not seen much of it (respect) today' that got him binned. Showed no respect at all, that.

    It's the culture at Toronto. Aggressive, hubristic, arrogant, entitled - it's 'fit in or ship out'.

    Pretty much this. It's easier for ex-NRL players to intimidate young referees in the championship - who wouldn't buckle a bit with Ashton Sims and JoshMcCrone in their ear for 80 minutes. But they got found out on Saturday. Ben Thaler played a blinder.

    It's a great day out - and the game against Swinton will have all the tension of a cup final. Bring a mate, wear your colours, get together make some noise. Worth every penny - and we have a 100% record to protect!
