  1. sky used to replay games during the week but these days the only game that gets replayed seems to be the Toronto game. perhaps the new super league boss could get all games put onto youtube with say a 3 day delay . I have seen London broncos put a few full games on youtube this season with that kind of delay so its certainly possible
  2. people just seem angry these days not only in rugby league but in everyday life . why cant people just take a breath and realise there acting like small children although I think I should really apologise to small children for the comparison at times
  3. it was been shown in Australia a good year or more ago and available on websites . have to agree its a good film not just from the rugby league angle but also the society over there and some of its attitudes to women and how those girls are helping to change it
  4. 11 a side is nothing new as it was played in the Leeds & district Sunday morning league back in the 1970s and to be honest at that level did not make much difference as the theory that there would be no full back and no loose forward never really happened as a player always dropped back to play full back and the defending scrum half often spent most of the time helping to push from the back of the scrum .
  5. so that's every super league that's not got a contract for next season then . bit surprised that Carl Ablett and Jamie Jones Buchanan are not on the list as I thought they had only been given one year contracts
  6. is rugby league dying in Yorkshire good question and to answer that the game needs to be strong at grassroots . 2018 NCL GRAND FINAL HUNSLET PARKSIDE V WEST HULL. seems its in better health than in Lancashire
  7. indeed they could also play more games if they want to but mine was just a solution to an unbalanced number that including the magic games as loop fixtures would bring up . oh for the days of 40 plus games a season
  8. well make one of the loop games an on the road game and that would even up the numbers
  9. hey when has stupidity stopped something been done . just imagine the outrage from the flat earth brigade if it promoted Toronto to the top of the middle 8s . its almost worth doing it just for that
  10. you never know but they did say its based on finishing positions in the league . now on your little theory can I add that if Toronto win the million quid game they may decide to give them 2 points and put them above rovers in the league . thus giving rovers a even number finishing position.mind you that would put them at the top of the middle 8s but hey ho gives plenty more chances to the more negative rugby league supporters to claim fix I suppose. I'm just joining in the fantasy possibilities that seem to be running wild
  11. they are going by finishing positions in the middle 8s as can be seen by the hull loop fixtures not including Leeds who finished 9th in the regular season but after the 8s were in 10th place so avoiding a loop fixture with hull fc. In effect rovers finished in 11th place at the end of the season .
  12. yep 1 of each every hour although on match days I heard they diverted them ?.
  13. fair enough if you think it will attract 5k extra fans but even that will not really make a difference as that will most likely cover the charges for rental of the stadium so in fact 13k at headingley would produce when taking hospitality in to account more profit than 18k at eland road . getting away from headinley to east Leeds by bus is easy you go to the top of burley hill and catch the 49 or 50 both of which go to east Leeds or for different parts of east Leeds you change in town . its never taken me more than 15 mins on bus to get to town that way . now getting to town from eland road on a bus is a nightmare of epic proportions unless you climb the big hill to beeston which I used to do before the old knees got to bad . I used to do a bit down at hunslet warriors so yes I know a lot of kids have rhinos tops but just go in the pubs in south Leeds and you will soon find a strong anti rhino sentiment not all because its a rl team but some for much worse reasons that are again becoming all to common . as I said as regards fiscally viable a 18k crowd would hardly be equal to a 13k crowd at headingley when you factor in hospitality gains in money at headinley against costs at eland road and also costs for using elland road all of which will have been gone into by Gary Hetherington at great length before the decision was made and nobody can tell me he does not know the value of just about everything rugby league certainly including how to get most money out of anything
  14. for me the reality is its about tradition and that counts far more than getting maybe another 500 in to watch the team and then giving a big wad of cash to Leeds united for the privilege. by the way I live in east Leeds and find it a lot easier to get to headingley than elland road at any time of the day for instance plenty of direct bus services from east Leeds to headinlgey but none to south Leeds which on the way back can make the difference of getting home well before 11pm or after it if from elland road . there will be 2 select big games at eland road v hull kr mostly as headingley will not be ready by then and against Castleford as we expect there fans will want to see the super league CHAMPIONS trophy paraded around the ground . hardly think any other games will attract bigger crowds of Leeds supporters
