How many Teams Will fail to Start/Complete Season?

231 posts in this topic

No, I didn't say I only attend the odd game, I said " I don't watch as many games as I did but I still get my fix" As I said earlier I would prefer winter but since the teams I watch now play in summer so be it. If at the end of the trial the NCL stays in summer I will cope without tantrum but with disappointment, I won't turn my back on the game. Posting repetetive whinges isn't bolstering your campaign, if people are undecided you may just push them in the wrong direction.

not many poeple go on this forum compared to who is involved in the game, and i dont need to bolster my campaing just ask what do poeple think in genral when you next attend a game.

my point being if a vote takes place it needs to be more transpararent that the last one, and it isnt a question in turning your back on the game its about having the time to commit which it is obvious that poeple havnt, during the peak summer months hence the amount of A games that got called off last season, i would like to see the welfare of all the players at the club looked after not just making sure the 1st team turn a side out.

i dont know enough to get into a debate to fare back about the RFL but they seem to be pulling a lot of string.

A lot of a teams were struggling before the summer switch and that's a fact.

Summer rugby is here make the most of it in whatever capacity you are involved in.

And if your thinking of playing this season may i make a suggestion sbull - get yourself down training to bolster the a team at your club.

I couldn't agree more with sbull, but for the change I would still be involved, maybe I am cutting my nose off to spite my face, my prerogative I'm afraid. I do believe rugby league is on the downward spiral, the people that run the game are incompetent! I now await more name calling and snide comments cause I don't agree with the so called mainstream, in the years I've read this forum I have noticed the said traits, I'm surprised del capo etc havn't had marauder etc banned as they did with boarder, everything he said has/is coming true, once a ref is probably the worst culprit for demonising people, typical keyboard warrior, goodbye, keep the faith sbull and marauder!!

You mention the people who run the game are incompetent do you mean RFL Barla or both, perosnally i dotn beleive either are perfect but Barla seem to have been going backwards long before RFL and summer.

Your not a site admin so id love to know how you know Del capo got boarder banned or it that just ###### you have decided to make up

You are also very blinkered when you believe all s bull and maurauder say

i dont think anyone can deny some teams were straggling in the winter, just a sign of the times, players retire a lot earlier than they use to,

not figured out who you are yet, what side of the water you from?

i like to watch games these days but no doubt will play the odd game if needed,

i would love to play in nice warm summer conditions, thats just basic common sense, but its also basic common sence that most folk will not change there summer habits.

I just think clubs need to embrace summer rugby and try and make it an event eg barbies or bouncy castles to get the families involved and the wifes might go to the game instead of dragging lads on days out

How much of what I've been saying has come true over the last few years, my big prediction over the next two NCL season is dual reg or twinning with a championship club.

It only works for a couple of seasons, ask why the London league has fallen on it's face in the last few seasons, when I started being involved in the summer we drew a lot from clubs in the expansion areas, they looked at the game and match days completely different from the heartlands, I'm sorry to say most of these clubs seem to have either folded or fallen on bad times, obviously a few are still doing well but once funding is withdrawn it's going to be hard to have people running around local schools, youth clubs etc.

IMO you will see players retire a lot earlier playing summer rugby, hard grounds don't help joints & ligaments.

Del capo has nothing to do with with boarder being banned. I suggest you read John Drake's comment on the bowes thread. Boarder got loads of warnings but continued to break forum rules. I even warned boarder once myself. He swore at another forumite. I deleted his post and asked him not to do it again and he did exactly the same thing a couple of hours later in the very same thread. He was banned from breaking the rules not because of his opinions.

I have yet to see marauder break any of the terms and conditions. He is, therefore, free to post.

I find that strange? Is there not a swear filter in place? I travel back through the forum and see many hash marks! I presume these are swear words? Methinks its not what you say, but who you say it to(or what your opinion is!) Strange how when people get a bit of power it goes to their heads,Oops, I'll probably get banned?

Definately not; I believe that mothers, wives and girlfriends should be involved and incouraged to support their partners.

i can see why i have been miss understood by my statement, Roughyedz, when i said why get the girls involved i was only referring to my own in an

attemed to be a little witty but that back fired on me, :blink:

i spent a season couching Wigan Ladies a few years back and to be honest i was suprised at the good standard.

after not missing a game for the best part of 21 seasons apart from a short spell in the forces (where i still played on leave) i havent missed a game during the winter,

last summer we took the kids away to Center parks were they enjoyed quad biking, fencing , canoeing, archery, climbing , ect

we also did a week in skegness doing similar things, followed by a few long weekend on various holiday parks in Blackpool and wales,

as you can see we planned our summer around good quality time around the kids, i also had to fit in the odd stag do,and my own trip abroud with the lads :D

so out of respect for my familly ( or truth be known, been told) i refuse to impose my hobby of amateur rugby on my family during the peak summer months,

the rest of the season she hasnt got a problem and saturdays are my own,although these often run into sunday morning :D

i dont think im the only familly man involved with rugby,

so no matter how much i enjoy playing/coaching and hopfully just watching now, i dont think i will be giving my summer up for the chance of a BBQ,

the Kids feel the same way over the bouncy castle,

when i told the wife someone posted BBQ and bouncy castle idea she actually started laughing and wouldnt believe me i had to show her the post. :lol: :lol:

i know i have ranted on a bit Roughyedz , but answer to your qeustion, no im no gave man,

There is a swear word filter but people find inventive ways getting around it.

After a grand total of three posts I'm not sure how you could reach any conclusion about how frequently people get banned and for what reason.
