  1. Indeed. And this place would make a great HQ: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-lincolnshire-43128766 And the new Ceo could be either a woman, Mavis Enderby or an old codger like Old Bolingbroke. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mavis_Enderby https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bolingbroke,_Lincolnshire
  2. Lots of low cost office accomodation in my area. Lincolnshire Coast.
  3. You almost have a point there. "All the real money for rugby (tv rights, sponsorship money from national/international companies) goes to RU." Need more info about traditional values, though. Exactly what do you mean?
  4. You are indeed wrong. No sign of any prejudice. Fair and balanced I say.
  5. Winter Olympics 2018

    I only caught the last few laps of her race. In those last few laps she seemed to be skating OK. I did not see the initial fall, restart and subsequent stuff. Before she crossed the finish line I asserted out VERY loud that if she finished second , she would be disqualified, even though I had seen nothing to indicate that. She wasn't instantly disqualified, though, and I went about my business happy at the outcome. It was only later that I found out that my prediction as spot on.
  6. Ignore the miserable "its not fair" naysayers. Nothing will be worse and indeed for positive thinkers ( a rarety in rugby league and on here) their prospects might improve. The angel will be in the detail.
  7. paper talk, absolutely, yes, though Sweaty Craig has been going on about it for quite some time. Could that be beacuse of his..er..er..Leigh links? I'm attracted to the idea, if, raised to the power of if..... and that's a lot of ifs as I have counted many ifs already.
  8. May it not depend on who is running it and how it is run?
  9. Maybe there is...or is going to be but we'd need to see proof of course. Just because there isn't somthing now, does not mean to say there won't be in future.
  10. And as you say, SL1 and SL2. Isnt that 20 SL clubs?
  11. Isn't the topic title somewhat innaccurate? As far as i can see its proposing an increase to 20 clubs. There have long been complaints that our players are called on to play too many games. Is this proposal a solution to that, especially if a nes or revised TV deal meant more televised clubs and more money? Should not be dismissed out of hand but debated on the basis of the proposal, not on a misreading of it.
  12. Sweaty Craig, where are you?
  13. Stadium's.

    ..you tell that to kids today and they won't believe you! πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€
  14. Stadium's.

    Interesting. I'm adding these: .....with hardly anyone in the stadium ......with a useless or non-existent PA .....in a ground with seats at pitch level ....in a ground that allows people to drink beer in the stands in winter ......in Yorkshire. πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€ ....
  15. Good man, Powell. Poisoned chalice. Couple of Internationals and the forum wiΔΊl be on his back, just like they have been since it was born.
  16. Why not? We sorted Hock out, after all. πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€
  17. SKY MOTM

    ...and as we know,the fans know far more about things than the experts
  18. The way it happened doesn't matter. Guilty or innocent , thd book will be thrown at him.
  19. Give over. Different class of opposition. Sure, Hull were goood and sure Wigan could have done better, but their defence was immense, and it had to be.. .and it was.
  20. Certainly Hull attacking shape much better thsn Wigan's. Too much bunching around the ptb.
  21. Discipline agsin, Wigan. SS look more serious about this than StG did in their game.
  22. Could have should have won this. Great warm up for the main event.
