  1. I have a very expensive experiential AI-driven TV. Using  a knowledge base informed by my "that's XX minutes of my life I'll never get back" and "one for  emetic fans" opinions, is intelligent enough to block

    So who's going?

    There's an outside chance that I, my wife and an Arsenal -supporting suvverner will go. Lobbying has commenced. 80th birthday present....if it happens.

    Youve missed the point - if Saints had supervised this area correctly a fan wouldnt have been able to approach a non playing  player with the threats/abuse used barely a foot away from his face and there would be nothing to report. PS a virtually empty plastic water bottle is hardly a lethal weapon

    Virtually empty or actually empty? It would have been potentially lethal in a hard water area.

    Nice summary. I’ve really no knowledge of most of the lower clubs, defunct clubs and their backgrounds. 

    That story mirrors the situation at Swinton -where I grew up - (and probably other clubs/towns, too) in the late 1950s and 1960s.  The diaspora resulting from new housing developments such as Little Hulton , rail closures, mill closures took a good number of people out of "walk-up" reach of Station Road. 

    That's why Im sure that if Hull KR were to grounshare with Hull FC,  tribalism apart,many fans would not appreciate the move

  5. We were season ticket holders during the dying days of Central Park. A good few of the people in adjacent seats said they would not renew their seats when the club moved to the JJB. The reason? They walked from their house to CP in ten mins but would have to drive/bus/ long walk to the JJB. There were / are lots of houses and flats close to CP and I think the move resulted in losing older less mobile fans who lived close to CP.  In the case of the Hull clubs, I suspect the result would be the same.

    Just what i've been saying all night, why in this sport can you goad someone, make contact with them, shove them etc when they make a mistake but if they retaliate they get punished, it's madness, absolute madness at times.

    I'd love to see someone, including Mr Connor, get a right good smack in the chops one of these days for doing it.

    That's exactly the response they are after, so the retaliator is penalised or binned or thrown out.  It's up to the coaches to manage it out of the game.
