  1. Agree with the second paragraph. Even in things such as expansion, imagine if we'd focussed on one or two regions for last 10 years where we had lots of Dev officers, invested in facilities, built up amateur participation etc. Anyway ... On the first point ... it won't be too far gone until we decide the right way forward is to become the 13 a side version of rugby under guidance from the rfu. Although perversely they'd probably grow the game quicker!!!!
  2. So you think we should stick with Wood and Rimmer et al.?
  3. But to me a lot of this leads back to the leadership at the top, this is the impression and the image they portray - one of incompetence which reflects across the game. I think real change is needed at the top and only then will we start to see any sort of progress made.
  4. Just caught up on pages 107-114, it's like watching a school playground squabble. Anyway, we have a very high profile coach, we have 20+ players, we have a ground to play at, we are apparently still the Bulls. I feel more positive about the new owners than the last, but don't quite yet have my enthusiasm back for the club, or the sport, yet (the one exception being Eric Perez and the Toronto project).
  5. A good article which pretty much sums up how I feel about RL at the moment, we are without doubt a rudderless ship and I still have no idea who is able to remove the likes of Wood & Rimmer. Without going too cross code I saw a news story yesterday about the rfu rolling out 100 artificial rugby pitches across the amateur game to grow participation and help clubs grow revenue. If only ... One of the few positives in 2016 was the emergence of Eric Perez at Toronto. I'd love someone like him running the RFL, outgoing, positive and willing to really sell the sport.
  6. Could be toys out of the pram, but the description of the RFL sounds all too familiar around not being fit for purpose. Whoever you support it is a true shame that the sport is run by the people it is.
  7. In terms of the question on whether Bulls fans will stick with the new team ... for me it's a probably. I want to see what the new guy has to say and how open he is. I can't imagine supporting anyone else though. Did you ever wonder why Dot Cotton on Eastenders always took Nasty Nick back? It never made sense, but they were family and so sort of had to.
  8. Those Newcastle shirts are really nice.
  9. We have a new team. Hurrah and caution at the same time!
  10. Yes you might be right, I remember on another occasion John helping me with a college project around sports clothing and showing me round all the merchandise and stuff!
  11. In which case maybe bring back the fees!! Also, on he new forum, I like it, simple to use and better functionality. Just takes a few days to get used to.
  12. I remember meeting John once, if I am talking about the same guy. I'd bought a Bulls shirt with Edwards 7 on the back (Shaun Edwards) and a week later he left, I wrote a letter and complained and he rang me and invited me up to the shop where he sorted me out a new shirt!
  13. I remember paying for an annual subscription once!!
