Very interesting interview, enjoyed reading thank you. Can you do Danny Kirmond next? :)

 

Glad you liked it! Will try get hold of Kirmond if you want. In the meantime, I did one with your new signing Paul McShane that is going online later today. He says he bought a dog off Danny Kirmond!

Now Danny has a lady friend he'll save a ton on peanut butter. I take it Joel Monaghan didn't fancy it?

Interview a Bulls player while they're still there.

 

I need to know whether Tom Olbison prefers strawberry jam or raspberry, dammit.

Although two or three over-critical bores on here tried to rubbish it, we had amazing feedback on our Off The Field interview with Ben Westwood last week. We've therefore made it into a regular feature.

 

Here's the latest one, which was printed in Monday's League Express, with Leeds winger Ryan Hall: http://www.totalrl.com/web/ryan-hall-leeds-rhinos-winger-rugby-league-interview/

 

I found it very surprising to discover Hall listens to Eva Cassidy and plays the piano. I loved imagining Westwood and Burgess chokeslamming each other at the pool, too. Hope you all enjoy it.

Hyper critical bores eh

What's the difference between bog standard critical and hyper critical? Do tell

You wanted feedback you got it. If you had wanted your belly tickling you should have said

 

As for the 'bore' bit well thanks for that. I was(apparently hyper) critical of the piece so that makes me a note too. I'll wear the label with pride, but suggest you check out your own output.

This US the kind if stuff that has been appearing in club programmes for decades and it works. It's also the kind if stuff that's been appearing in 'another rugby  league paper' as well. I'm sure they think imitation is,well you know what it is.

 

If this works for LE excellent and it isn't a reason to stop reading the paper

If not being the biggest fan of it means you get called a hyper critical bore then it looks like a long standing Monday morning ritual gas come to an end

This was actually an idea I developed at my previous role over two years ago at a golf magazine.

I was simply defending what I thought was interesting content, no hard feelings.

None at all Joe

Believe me my comments were meant constructively

I empathise more than perhaps you know. It's the close season and all that.

 

I think rugby league players are really interesting people in other ways

And if your stuff goes down well generally well that's a good thing

I quite liked the idea of asking off topic Questions to Ryan Hall, any other interview you would here with him is serious anyway, why not do something a bit off topic

I don't mind fun articles but these 2 articles haven't really added anything to our understanding of professional sportsmen, what drives them, what influences they have.

I agree the questions are very much the sort aimed at teenagers. Favourite colour? really?

Not everyone wants to know about the sports person. Some people want to know about the person.

May as well as add me to the bores as well, what a load of adolescent tripe, expect you swapped Top Trumps and discussed who was your favourite Power Rangers as well.

 

C'mon Joe, it's mostly adults who visit this site.

Theres a really easy way for you not to be bored by this "adolescent tripe". Dont read it or involve yourself in it.
