careful, youre messing with a protected species. Criticism not allowed, a mod will be along in a minute to slap your hands

Give this up, please. Both you AND Canetman were contacted privately by me the other day for dragging a thread off topic, to try and prevent a reoccurrence. If you both follow the advice I gave, we can all just get along nicely. Thank you.

I hate it and could not care less what happens against countries like Pakistan and India and Sri Lanka. Not even sure why anyone plays Pakistan in any sport as they sponsor and support radical groups.

I love cricket, can't get enough of it.

Bit of a sweeping (and ill informed) statement about Pakistan.

That is your choice.

Why is it a sweeping statement about Pakistan?

You judge that it is ill informed on what basis.

I can point to many areas where Pakistan either supports or turns a blind eye to radical elements, the USA barely gets behind them as the alternative is worse.

Start a thread in AOB if you want to discuss Pakistan, or cricket, or both together.

This thread is about Rugby League sponsors.

Please stay on topic.

Thank you.

Indeed.

Indeed to which point?

Cricket is re inventing itself to try to stay alive every year, One day games 20/20 big bash Australia is one of the big Countries behind the game and its losing fans year on year, its as relevant as Squash.

Or was it the radical thing.?

John can you read?

I asked on another thread who was on the Panel for the Golden Boot award, many others have asked this question, both here and on other Forums.

What was the answer please?

Don't care how they voted, wouldn't want the poor chaps to be assaulted on social media, who were the judges though?

I cant ask the question?

Who is that in your Avatar Mate?

I don't think many Aussies rate it any more than the WCC or care, its an English Vehicle to promote the game in England and make the English fans feel warm and fuzzy like the WCC

An award is only worth something if you know who Judged or awarded it, that is not rocket science.

If I gave you an award as the best poster on any Forum in the World would it mean much to you?

I doubt it.

Without any knowledge of Judges what is the award worth?

Nothing basically its an award by a Magazine based in England with a vested interest in who they give the award to.

Its not complicated, its just that.

What does that question have to do with this thread, or the umpteen others you post about the award in? It just smacks of bitterness.

Its the bestest prop in the world ever....in my opinion. Big James Pickering.

Good on you.

Never heard of him.

I am not bitter about who gets the Golden Boot, I am concerned that an award that once had credibility and helped build the foundations of this game is now owned by a magazine and is selected on some sort of bias.

I had no Horse in the race for the GB but if Sir Kev is the best player in the game based on individual ability not leadership or lifetime contribution then its time to move on.

Kevin Sinfield is a great all rounder and Club man, there are plenty of those just look at a player like Nathan Hindmarsh, he was never going to be a contender in any year, fans from other Clubs loved him. Was he the best in the World? nah.

Sinfield has always been a point of debate as to whether he should be picked for England a team that wins not much, suddenly he is the best in the World?

Come on................ he is not in the best 50 in the World.

He is not the best Captain either as many suggest, Paul Gallen is a better Captain that leads from the front and changes a game as is Cam Smith or several others.

Only my opinion, I do know that the award has lost any lustre it once had and that has been the case for several years, it may have been mentioned in the Oz press but it barely was noticed on Oz Forums or even commented about.

I like Canetman sharing his thoughts on the question of sponsorship - and other matters too. I do not doubt that he has more knowledge of these things than I do. I find reading his posts to be compelling...

However, I do wish he would share this knowledge more fully and transparently and am puzzled as to why he insists on being so coy and enigmatic on a rugby league forum such as this one. I wonder too if he has ever thought of offering his services to the RFL - in exchange for proper remuneration, of course - as his list of contacts appears to be an extensive one? I do not dismiss what CM has to say, but the manner in which he says it sometimes seems to make him appear as if he enjoys the difficulties rugby league faces and, although he might have the answers, he is not willing to let us know precisely what they are...

On some other points: I remember James Pickering as a marvellous, crowd-pleasing front rower with a very skilful off-load. It's a shame that Andy Capp has never heard of him for he might have enjoyed watching him play.

Irrespective of who won the Golden Boot - I do not understand why AC's perfectly reasonable question regarding the names of the judges remains unanswered.

Cheers Traki, I do remember Pickering if I am to be Honest he only played a handful of NRL games so the memory is small.

If a Panel can not be named then if reflects on the worth of the Award, that is pretty simple I would have thought.

10 unknown people award the Golden Boot to Blah Blah Blah...... pretty important award that one.

Is that right he only played 23 NRL games?

He had a lot of injuries during his first stint at Canterbury.
