    Duffy - I'm so sh*t I joined a sinking ship.

    I hope we put the Riddy money to good use. To my mind we're short on two proven, quality halfbacks. All well and good trumpeting the PNG lads, but they are totally untested in our competition, not here yet (our visa track record is not good) and might not be as good as their YouTube highlights. As for our former coach: A mate of mine posted on Facebook comparing him to a lady garden, mocked his hobbit like features and wished him a fiery death in Mordor. Difficult to argue. If we make the top 8 next year, I will be astonished. I'll be there lapping up the punishment.

    Featherstone searching for a new coach

    Hope your better half doesn't read that. I'd be looking at two well deserved (according to Mrs Shep) black eyes if I'd written that.
  3. You are Degsy Junior and I claim £5
  4. If you look underneath a Roller, you'll see a fair few bits that say BMW 7 series on them too.

    Duffy wants Leigh job?

    Are we bothered if Duffy goes? We had the most expensive squad in our history last year, I expected so much more. Anyway, he's from the wrong side of the hill and talks funny, so boooger it.

    What shape will Leigh be in next year?

    Will the rotund oaf be forced to give the Lambo back? Im pretty sure there's plenty of sympathy for the loud mouthed buffoon. Sadly, my personal giveashitometer is struggling to register.
  7. Signed and shared. Even my C*s supporting mates have signed. Shocking, truly shocking.

    Featherstone Rovers scoop up PNG talent

    The chairman has quite a lot of property. They'll all be together in one of his HMOs, so they'll not lack company.

    That's public service broadcasting though, to help all the insomniacs out there.

    New Grounds.

    Do you think the planned development will ever go ahead as it's been sold to Cas? I can't imagine physical retailers are remotely interested in acquiring new square footage anytime soon. Surely that land is more valuable if it can be re-zoned as housing. This pie in the sky shopping development might just be a stepping stone plan.

    Summer Bash New Venue?

    Went there once. Stayed all of 10 minutes. Quite possibly the most depressing place on earth.

    Summer Bash New Venue?

    Shame. Maybe the year after. Unless we actually have the event in summer, rather than late spring.

    Summer Bash New Venue?

    Have you seen the price of accommodation in Blackpool? At least accommodation that you'd actually want to go within 15 light years of. If we're trying to project an imagine of a P!$$ poor sport that's played exclusively in northern Shiiitholes, then let's carry on with a scruffy dump like Blackpool. If however we want to take the sport to a world famous city playing at a brand new stadium, with oodles of culture and visitor attractions for everyone to enjoy, let's go to York. Christ knows what our Canadian and French cousins think when they rock up in Blackpool and see the groups of knuckle draggers roaming round, wearing inflatable man parts, spewing ale and vomit everywhere etc..
  14. Nowhere near enough money in the game to support that many pro clubs. None of your Lancashire teams are in Lancashire, indeed there are no professional, or even semi professional teams left in Lancashire. Hull, Cas, Fev and Wakey are all in Yorkshire, not "The East". York is further east than three of them too. Here's a radical plan: Let's have 3 divisions, numbers to be decided as and when required. Promotion and Relegation between all three divisions every year (without fail). Stick with this basically forever and stop messing about. Also, never ever consider imposing an alien format from foreign sports. Let's keep it simple, stick with what's familiar and concentrate on the sporting action.

    private equity company land plans

    Will you be sending a proxy vote? I think there's a real danger that enough folk will vote for A to scupper the plan and leave us in a spiral of decline.
