  1. At least some people still watch teletext. No one watching. RL world cup this year.
  2. Anyway. Who would trust the BBC with rugby league? Just looked at their teletext service. According to them, the world cup fixtures are being played. Hope they are not spending our license fee sending camera crews etc there.
  3. Monday night for the players with a Monday to Friday 9 to 5 job? Ok for say, Batley v Dewsbury, but what about Whitehaven v London?
  4. Freesports and Premier sports are part of same group, but only 1 channel is free to watch.
  5. Don't you just love these "I know something you don't know" posts. Rather childish in my opinion.
  6. Do we know who the broadcaster will be?
  7. Will it be on TV? If so, which channel?
  8. Anyone know if this will be broadcast, and if so, by who? Thanks
  9. First game after winning CC was home to Wigan. Thought at the time, a win and a good crowd would help Eagles "kick on". Sadly, they got neither. As to why things did not get better, I have no idea. Do seem to remember that Sheffield got over 8000, for the match, when they thrashed the newly crowned World club champions Widnes (around 1989). This match was at Sheffield United's football ground. The Eagles were unable to stage a lot of their home matches in Sheffield for a lot of the time. Don't suppose this helped.
  10. If I remember correctly (apologies if I'm wrong) I think the answer would be no, as Huddersfield had finished the previous season in a relegation position.
  11. If memory serves me correct, at one time, there was both the Huddersfield/Sheffield Giants, and the newly formed ( or re-formed) Sheffield Eagles. So technically there was one and a half professional teams in the city. It seemed to be perceived (in Sheffield) that the merged club had a much greater Huddersfield bias, and most Sheffield fans supported the new "Mark Aston's" Eagles, and Huddersfield were the team they loved to hate. Eventually the new club dropped all references to Sheffield. Not so much of a merger, more an asset stripping exercise.
  12. This may be slightly off topic, but have Sky stopped showing NRL. Thought I would record the play offs, but can not find them in my EPG. Thanks
  13. Just going on the original thread title of Sad to see in RL, a lot has been said, about racist abuse comments, but what about the referee abuse comments I heard while watching, the St Helens Castleford match on Sky yesterday. Is it okay to abuse a referee for doing his job, but not someone for their race? It was also clear that the comments were not just from one person, but quite a large number. And as far as I know, nothing will be done about it.
  14. If you see it to the final whistle you are doing well. Used to record it on Sky+, and nearly always cut off before final whistle. I did complain. I got a polite reply, but they made it obvious they were not going to change anything.
  15. Would love to see the end of scrums in both codes of rugby. Not taken seriously in one code, taken far too seriously in the other.
  16. For last night's York Sheffield game I connected my Laptop to TV with a HDMI connector.
  17. Are we talking about a live game, or a highlight programme, similar to the ITV scrumdown programme many years ago?
  18. Don't believe that freesports update their EPG too often. Bit of a cheap and cheerful channel, don't have the resources to match Sky or BT
  19. Quite a common problem with NRL on Sky, even without golden point. I complained to them about recordings ending before the final whistle. I even threatened to cancel my subscription. Their response; whilst they did not want to lose my custom, they had no intention to get the EPG correct.
  20. Are these games available to view via the BBC red button?
  21. I have not watched a TV ad for decades. Record all programmes, sport or otherwise, and fast forward through the ads.
  22. I obviously don't know what BT would be like if they took over rugby league from Sky, but if they can keep the camera pointing at the game, while the ball is in play, would be a great improvement.
  23. On the subject of TV coverage, can anyone tell me who, if anyone, is televising the World Cup? Thanks
  24. Thank you for your replies. I appreciate you giving your views, although not quite the same as mine. Did not realise things were that bad re turnstiles. Last time I went to see Eagles was around 2013 when they played at Owlerton. I did not realise that this price differential was commonplace.I watch a different sport where it is not commonplace (and probably never will be). I only mentioned it on the Eagles forum, as, with Sheffield being my local club, probably the only team I would be going to support. I am not "anti" Sheffield Eagles in any way (apart from pricing policy). I have thought about going to some Eagles matches in the last few years. However, this price differential, was one of a few things putting me off from going, and I am sure that the club would welcome extra supporters/income.
