  1. It appears that nowt is happening yet... https://www.pontefractandcastlefordexpress.co.uk/sport/rugby-league/silence-surrounds-future-new-castleford-tigers-stadium-work-shows-no-signs-starting-1883912
  2. Same as usual, you'll never please everyone...
  3. There's an increasing trend around here to park somewhere inappropriate, then chuck a traffic cone in to the road by your car to highlight the fact. I'm often tempted to stop and collect the cones.
  4. I'll spin that around. The length of time I often have to wait for traffic to stop at the crossings near work winds me up as a pedestrian, due to the number of cars that ignore red lights.
  5. I moved to the Calder Valley in mid 2010, and it's flooded 5 times since then. The works in Mytholmroyd have been taking an eternity, and I think more questions will now get asked as to why things are taking so long. The environment agency are certainly keeping a low profile at the moment, especially considering they were taking walls down last week, not putting them up. That said, some of the completed works do appear to have saved areas that had flooded previously. I understand the works are actually based on modelling of the 2012 floods being a one in a hundred year event, which wouldn't have actually stood up to the 2015 flooding anyway, and may not have stopped yesterday, even if complete. A complete rethink on the frequency of such events needs to be had. What is really required around here is better management of the uplands to stop so much water getting to the valley bottom so quickly. Stopping all the burning of moorland in the name of grouse shooting, and more upland reservoirs would be a start. The area you mention that used to hold football pitches is Brearley Fields, and is (or was) the playing fields for Calder High School. The current plans are to create a permanent wetland nature reserve there, however that obviously has a detrimental impact on school sports, not that I understand that they've been anywhere near usable since 2015 anyway. https://www.halifaxcourier.co.uk/news/creation-of-a-new-calderdale-nature-reserve-moves-a-step-closer-1-10234929
  6. And then they decided if you can't beat em, join em, because most other clubs wouldn't scrap it. Suddenly for some reason, that meant all the others using it were suddenly up in arms.
  7. I know you are, and the effort is appreciated. Little point in it causing you stress though, for what is just meant to be a bit of fun. It all feels a bit too serious at times.
  8. It is more than just making a few players available. Our conditioner has only recently stated that at least one of our long term injured players is able to do rehab using the facilities at Leeds as an example of where else it impacts. Like it or loathe it, I'd suggest Fev and Leeds are making best use of the current rules. It's up to the rest to look to change the rules, join the game as is, or sulk about it.
  9. We could just do it for fun, and loose all the stress of how and when to make a presentation.
  10. Decent start I reckon. Presumably this will also be working in reverse, so we'll loose a percentage of sales made when we're at home, but over the season I'd expect this to be a potential upside for us.
  11. Because it starts the week after the hearing, same as it has for as long as I can remember.
  12. Shall I reply to the text, and whoever has posted on this thread that lives nearest wins the prize and goes to meet them?
