Worrying SL score margins

218 posts in this topic

No - that is why it is #### (regarding point 1and point 3). I really dont enjoy watching NRL, and never watched it before I finally got shut of premier sports last year

But it's a lot closer and that's all the fans want.

10 years? Pah! 30 yeard? Double pah! 50 years ago Swinton put 100 points past Salford in just 2 gsmes.

But how does Lobby know that is what the fans want or, rather, that it is ALL the fans want?

Is there much footage of ye olde games? It doesn't have to be a classic, and preferably not just "highlights". I've seen a bit or two of famous GB wins over Australia, and the game seems a bit messier than now.

What fans?

The fans in lobbyland.

It's all about close scores.

Was 1983 the last time Leigh were any good by any chance?

It was when Lobby first watched the game and therefore it is how the game always was and how it always shall be.

RL was undeniably a little slower and scruffier back then, but I personally preferred it because the scores were much closer on average. Depends if you want cleaner but less close (on average) games.

And when you last watched a game before getting into womens tiddlywinks

That makes no sense

Tight game this weekend, can't say I enjoyed it that much

Newer converts to the games also don't like close, scruffy games either

When did Wigan stick 100+ points on Flimby & Fothergill?

116 point to nil. 17th Feb 1925

There is one consolation for the visitors, and it is a good one. There was an excellent attendance, and their share of the gate will recompense them for the heavy defeat.

But you can have cleaner and closer games in the NRL.

You've yet to explain why you don't like this.

Of course not, but what about the fans who have been fans for years?

What about people who havent been converted?

Padge I think using actual facts in this debate isn't going to get the point across, its took 9 pages so far and we don't know how many more.

This was a discussion about the top tier so why add second tier games as well? Why not just put up the top division scores? By the way - for a whole season across both divisions that is not actually too many large score margins! There were almost as many in SL alone last season with quite a few above 60.

Did you make a bet with someone, maybe to see just how ridiculous you can look in a thread?

So you are saying blow-outs are ok in the second and third tier but unacceptable in the first tier.

What about the fact that 82/83 was in the 3 point try era, some of those scores would look at lot worse with four point tries, a lot of the thirty point scores would also tip into the 40 point area.

You continually claim these things didn't happen, its obvious they did, and in large numbers.

Go away, do some maths, come back with ACTUAL FACTS that back up your argument.

Do you have any actual facts, or is this all my rose tinted glasses say this never happened when I were a lad?

And this time answer the questions instead of hiding under the bed blankets.

Of course he doesn't have facts.

Even if he somehow produced the facts he would need to provide some form of evidence that the 10m rule directly caused the blowouts rather than anything else that is different about the game since then. In summary he is miles away from making anything like a point.

The thing that annoys me most about Lobby is that you know he is sat there wishing for the game to fail in the hope it somehow proves his point. He probably watches hoping it will be a blowout and be over by half-time just so he can continue to make his point about the 10m rule being the root of all RL's problems.
