  1. "'e knowles, yer kno' '" said Hylda Baker.
  2. Have I missed someone posting this already? From BBC Sport. "St Helens back-rower Morgan Knowles will be available for England's Rugby League World Cup opener with Samoa despite a one-game ban following Saturday's Super League Grand Final. The 25-year-old was charged with Grade A dangerous contact for a late hit during the 24-12 win over Leeds. Team-mate Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook is also banned for one match. The 36-year-old prop was charged with Grade B contact with a match official, while winger Tommy Makinson received a caution for the same offence with A grading, meaning a less severe penalty."
  3. That's not argument. That's contradiction: the automatic gainsaying,.well, you all know the rest...
  4. I'd like to place on record that the most annoying phrase is.... St.Helens.
  5. Look. This is not difficult. 1. The UK is not the U.S. 2. SuperLeague is not the NFL. 3. The Superbowl would sell out without a half-time show. 4. The Superbowl half-time show is about advertisers tapping into huge TV viewing figures based on solid stats that prove that paying the huge costs of advertising generates a return for the advertisers. 5. It just isn't going to happen to the GF. 6. Dad,dad, can we watch/go to the SL Grand Final because Nicki Minaj is doing a 5 min lip-sync half-time slot, dad, dad, can we can we dad? Aye, son. Just let's sell the house to pay for it. Tickets for the game on Ticketmaster were starting at $6,600 each and go up to $24,000 and up as of Feb 1. SeatGeek said that the average price customers were paying for tickets as of Feb. 1 was $10,427, while StubHub has an average of $9,800 and Vivid Seats are offering tickets for $5,862 up to $50,000 and beyond for exclusive seats.
  6. My mum, born befor the 1st world war, used to respond to "What's for tea, mum?" with "Wigwams for womskers for ducks to peek on"
  7. Indeed it is. Hence my post. Event my ######. If you want to waste money on a ###### second rate excuse for music, or even a top class rock band, then go to one of their concerts, unsullied by the actual game. Who in their right minds would go to the climax game of the whole club season and moan because there were no screechy out-of-tune pimply kids pretending to be musical? You see, the GAME is the thing, unless you don't like RL of course.
  8. I see what you mean. A really poor experience All I saw was the pathetic sight of two of the country's best rugby teams giving their absolute all in front of 60, 000 screaming fans in the stadium and who knows how many on Sky or listening on the radio.
  9. You can take the man out of St Helens, but you can never take St Helens out of the man.
  10. " A cynic may have a general lack of faith or hope in people motivated by ambition, desire, greed, gratification, materialism, goals, and opinions that a cynic perceives as vain, unobtainable, or ultimately meaningless and therefore deserving of ridicule or admonishment." No room for ambition in our game.
  11. You have turned a thread about Bevan French into a defence of Leigh's financial position and an attack on Wigan's financial position.
