Neil Hudgell fined £1000 by RFL for improper conduct!

63 posts in this topic

For " the moderator of the international board" that seems to sum up the level of your intellectual contribution.

God help the Chairmen of the 8 clubs struggling below Hull, they don't matter in your eyes.

From a supposed jovial remark the truth spouts out. Leave it to Leeds Wigan etc to run the game shall we.

Always beware somebody trying to impress with their "job status".

Poor phrasing on my part, I meant to put "underperforming" rather than "struggling". Which I think you'd agree that a team that were expected to do fairly well and have had the results WLLWLLWLW have underperformed.

 

I'd also say that Warrington and Huddersfield have underperformed (I'd even say struggling for Huddersfield). Wigan are also below where I would expect but they have a game in hand so I'll reserve judgement.

 

The entirety of the top 4 are exceding my expectations also, I would not have expected to see Leeds and St Helens as high as they are now, and certainly not Cas or Widnes (no disrespect to those teams, but I'm sure their fans are pleasantly surprised by their form this season)

 

I don't think the clubs below the top few "don't matter". As you can see from my signature, I follow clubs from all sorts of levels and I want every club to do well (except maybe Hemel [joking])

 

And on the last point, I'm not trying to impress with my "job status", I just believe in pointing out all my biases (which, yes, I am biased, just as everyone on here is), and that is there to point out that whilst it says "Moderator" under my username, I have absolutely no more power outside of the International forum than anybody else does.

These people are too used to getting their own way.

Perhaps "these people" are used to operating in rather more professional circumstances and have to adhere to more consistent rules.

 

Just a thought.

Doubt it.  Clearly Hudgell and Pearson don't act professionally.  If they had, there'd've been no cases to bring.

I was talking about the careers where they made their money compared to the environment they find themselves in as Chairmen of RL clubs.

 

Hudgell and Pearson are both very successful businessmen who have made considerable amounts of money in their respective fields. They both also seem to be frustrated at the way RL, and all that goes with it, is run.

 

This suggests to me that they think our sport could do with summat of an overhaul at the governing body level. They both love RL, and perhaps their comments come from a desire to make our game more professional and therefore more respected by rival sports.

 

That a simple cup draw could attract such attention for apparent ineptitude that the RFL have to come out in the media and state their case that all was well, in spite of what a fair few folk think, speaks volumes.

 

We are classed as a minority sport by many and, to my great regret, there is really no wonder.

A polite question...

As Rovers have now won their last 3 league games and Hull are actually above us can we drop the "struggling" tag?

If so does that permit Pearson and Hudgell to express a view and be given consideration by the big boys?

OR do we still have to suffer these closed views expressed above.

Are Hull playing next Thursday?

Like the ipetition doing the rounds, started b4 NH and Adam Pearson spoke up.

There seems to be a lot of people who lack confidence in the powers that be.....Seems to have even united both sides of the Hull divide.

If you are a Leeds fan perhaps you are happy with Red Hall?

It's got nothing to do with who I support. I just hate to see club owners acting unprofessionaly and throwing their toys out of the pram.

Does the image of the game no good. It's not as if they don't have regular meetings where these things can be discussed. Or is Hudgell the bloke who can't be bothered to go?

I see.  And do they make their "considerable amounts of money" in the same way that they deal with Rugby League matters.  Stamp their feet and bawl until they get their way ?

Respect Is earned. For a number of years the RFLhave been in turmoil and the decision making is biased and at times poor. There is a distinct lack of professionalism and when issues have tried to be addressed by clubs via the proper channels, nothing is done. There is little wonder some club representatives become frustrated.

That could be true, I don't know as generally one tend to hear the clubs comments more "loudly" and may give me a bias view.  My thought is are the respective clubs models of professionalism whenever I hear which ever club representative is commenting about some aspect of the RFL domain.

My point entirely.

Assuming Mr Griff you support the status quo how exactly is this respect earned?

Surely not by being a top club or by sitting quietly by when incompetence is obvious.

Some of the PR statements put out as justification by the RFL apologists are so obviously party line it is laughable.

Can someone just deal with the content of Hudgell, Pearson and others critique? In business if key members of your management / ownership team are in disagreement you would sit down and discuss not just punish them for having a view. Bringing the game into disrepute charges are a pathetic response.

Similar in a way to comments about toys prams feet bawl and stamp.....some people need to grow up and debate not insult!

Obvious, is it ?  Can you back that up ?

That is hardly a challenge!

 

What I've seen on this thread so far is that some people have a different opinion to you, you don't like it and you want them sacked.

 

Not my view of incompetence.

The only people I want replaced are at the RFL. The incompetents......

If some people on here have a different opinion thats fair debate...but as you say "some" so thats not All.

When you say "sacked" are you saying some people on here work at the RFL?

Are you really of the opinion that the game is well led at the top?

If so tell me what exactly you admire.....now thats a challenge.

a cull is needed at the Rugby League imo - I'd say giving away sponsorship for a few pictures on the side of wagons is a good start!

Some club owners see that the sport is under sold, under valued, parochially managed and and in need of a new standard/quality of the people running the sport.

 

Unless you're happy with mediocrity and chronyism?

 

These by the way are my views and not to be mistaken as the views of anybody else unless they would like to like this post!

Ah - I can see that you just don't get it.

 

A decision's been made by the people appointed to make that decision.  I accept it. 

 

Whether I agree with it is irrelevant.

You must be a sad man but I guess you just accept it.

Your agreement is not irrelevant, your education must have been wasted.

Now I understand many of your posts in the past. You like to be told what to think by them up there who have been annointed, sorry appointed.

You seem to be under the impression that the RFL make the rules.

 

They don't, the clubs make the rules, the RFL carry them out.

 

The reason Neil Hudgell can't change the system isn't because the RFL are intransigent.

 

It's because he does not have sufficient support amongst his peers.

 

You need to see his actions in that context.

Good update on totalrl news confirming Neil is progressing with his appeal.

Looks like the inspired idea of the Appeal being heard by the same people who are the subject of his not fit for purpose comments has been dropped.

His case will be justification and will be published. Should be very revealing.

As a big sponsor and friend of the Tigers chairman Hudgell will be at Wembley....a result for the RFL.

Getting paranoid....have the powers that be stepped in and censored it?
