  1. Agree, reminded me of that bloke who signed for Wigan.
  2. Back in the late sixties early seventies the game thrived in the junior schools in Widnes. That changed when you went to the senior schools, it seemed all the PE teachers played rah rah so they had it all sown up.
  3. Always makes me laugh when the talk of six "big clubs" plus some exotic invention's are brought up. Those six are currently "big" because they are up and around the top most seasons. I reckon two or three really poor seasons in a "Northern Hemisphere" league would have the potential to reduce a few of them to the levels of those currently looked down on. Lets take Saints under Cunningham as an example. "Red Vee" was in uproar, they won't be going again this year, they won't be renewing season tickets, they are finished with the game, etc etc. All because Saints weren't walloping everyone every week. They sacked the coach, started handing out spankings again and everyone's happy. But in this brave new world what happens if that doesn't work, what happens if Saints are not just scraping wins, they are getting walloped. How many are a struggling Saints going to pull after a couple of really poor seasons? Same goes for most of the six. Fifty odd years following the game tells me the fickleness of rugby league "supporters" should never be under estimated. Twenty or so years on here tells me many are happy for sacrifices to be made as long as its somebody else making the sacrifice.
  4. Just read it. What amazed me is the suggestion that the game has plenty of "white collar" followers but they don't like to admit it. Can the game do what soccer has achieved over here and become a game that crosses all boundaries?
  5. Widnes are surveying their 2,200 season ticket holders re refunds or donate to the club. Currently just over half of them have responded with 83% telling the club to keep the money.
  6. Very little interest in it these days. If I'm in and its on I will probably watch England World Cup games but thats about it. Zero interest in any particular club. Enjoy playing golf but that's about it sporting wise for me.
  7. Have a feeling you might get your wish. Check out next Saturdays schedule.
  8. Played 5 a side football against Paul and had the misfortune of colliding with him. It was like hitting a wall.
  9. The "final restructure " was decided upon after the 1994/95 season was completed if my memory is correct. Which would mean that at the outset of the season, Widnes along with all the other clubs had no idea that there were six "relegation " places
  10. If the championship clubs don't play again this season then where do they stand with season ticket holders?
  11. GB beating Australia in Melbourne. Widnes beating Canberra. Widnes beating Australia (last club side to beat them) Offiahs 10 tries against Leeds. Wigan beating Manly. Widnes beating Wigan to win the league. Wigan beating Widnes to just about clinch the league.
  12. This season, to all intents looks like its on the way to being written off and as such I agree that promotion and relegation should be put on hold. However next season, in the interests of fairness we should relegate two from Super league. After listening to the amount of bleating going on it would seem that most of them are probably more suited to the championship anyway.
