  1. How will Wigan go this season?

    Are you referring to the Broncos game a week Friday? As someone not in the spell of Wigan can only hope the London game tomorrow is a home win.
  2. Hull's Sporting Life: Tony Collins

    Aces was a great baseball team as well. In the 60s they were getting crowds of up to 300 on a Sunday afternoon,always a good time to watch sport. Hence the game moved from Saturdays to Sundays! What went wrong leading to Thursday/Friday being the main event.

    And where on this fantasy post has any HKR can even bothered to comment, never mind predict the clubs success. It's funny how a season in the Championship has spooked these haters.
  4. O'Loughlin wants Bennett to stay

    I resent that. I am as fair minded as the next man and have acquired an amount of RL knowledge over 65 years, young man. You will learn one day to understand that not everybody thinks like you and to respect an alternative few. I just wanted to challenge a post that relies on one players expressed view , what makes anyone think O'Loughlin is important to the majority of the RL intelligentsia?
  5. HKR Bob....I profoundly disagree! Bradford are a very special case. They went down with a belief they were too big a club and were badly served by their "owners". Rovers went down with the experience of several journeys in a lower league and a recognition that we would not get any special treatment from the RFL. We had ownership and support that was solid based in East Hull. I think a failure to go straight back might have led to an inevitable loss of owners commitment and support but with the history of RSG as an example we were never in deep trouble. Bradford are victims of RFL meddling.
  6. O'Loughlin wants Bennett to stay

    This topic is about that hero O'L plain and simple.
  7. O'Loughlin wants Bennett to stay

    Does anyone care what OLoughlin thinks? Lets move on to upcoming players with something to offer. Leave limpalong Leslie to help Wigan!
  8. How will Wigan go this season?

    Probably the same as every other season. Meek and mild when Wigan FC call, full of themselves at all other times. Wonder why nobody lerves them or their conservative fans/fools. They need a year in the Championship to earn respect. On the Wane.
  9. I believe I would be relaxed if we were still in the Championship, after all in my support since 1960 we have spent many years in the lower Leagues. The Championship has a lot to offer...Sunday rugby,genuine fans,honest hard-working "owners", traditional grounds,competitive teams, genuine players..... The Bradford experience is not a true measure to match against. A millstone of a ground, a failure to re-ignite the fans, spending money and offering dreams that couldn't be afforded. And to date have any lessons been learnt? Here's a question does having to travel distances to all away games give Hull and Rovers a headstart in getting the fans "together"?
  10. A visionary if you say so. I raised the topic (again?) as I looked forward to 2018 with a renewed enthusiasm after the great experience my club has had in the last season in a very refreshing Championship. I then wondered about Leigh's experience and took a view that they too had benefited. So why have a play off system that favours a no change result. But if you are bored you know what to do.
  11. Danny Houghton testimonial today.

    Share your sentiments, just hope Hull can stay up! Dual reg players on both sides, but in reverse...registered with the Championship 1 teams loaned to the big boys. Also City Academy players not yet on SL terms. In other words not even in the 30+ squads....little respect for putting a show on for the fans. Better to play games v York and Doncaster that are basically run throughs.
  12. After experiencing the excitement of a year in the Championship it strikes me that Leigh also benefited from their journey in SL. Both clubs are entering 2018 much better prepared with a revitalised determination to succeed. SL benefited from Leigh's presence and their fans and Stadium had a good run for their money and fresh faces were seen. The Championship teams experienced much bigger away support and the challenge of matching up to a full time "SL" team. And the KR fans enjoyed new travels and the party atmosphere of Sunday away trips of pre match get together. As a club we made a commitment and rejuvenated ourselves after 10 years in SL. And increased our support going into the Championship and breaking all records this year. Relegation and Promotion ( if only for a year) might be a godsend for Salford and Widnes or Halifax, Featherstone or London. Just a thought!
  13. Danny Houghton testimonial today.

    If only the crowd had been above 6000 a few Hull fans might have stayed to respect Danny Houghton. The pre season Derby is such a dull affair now, made a mockery by players brought on without numbers. There is too much at stake in SL to play a friendly in a half empty hollow Stadium in the coldest conditions risking injury. In this case at least Danny gets some cash but there was little respect for the Clive Sullivan Trophy. As with the Steve Prescott Trophy we should use the 3 League games to decide and award the CS Trophy to a worthy winner. Looking forward to real games next month!
  14. Will Leeds break SL attendance record?

    Thursday night in February will struggle to get to 100,000 even with free buses. But I will be there even though it means a 3am arrive home. And what's this about 2017 in the wilderness? Think we were very much in the spotlight and experienced a great Championship competition more interesting at times than a sterile SL.
  15. Why is Yorkshire so far behind Lancashire?

    Totally agree. KR offers superb facilities yet retains the true feeling of a traditional ground generating real atmosphere.
