  1. The Oldham physio is a liar who makes things up. Is the only explanation that fits for the change in verdict.
  2. A club that's played one friendly in three years isn't yet an example of a top down approach working, let alone it being the only way expansion can work.
  3. You could start here. I'll not be discussing further on here! https://www.theguardian.com/sport/2020/oct/21/major-league-rugby-us-glendale-raptors-withdrawal
  4. I think it's also because MLR has some very weird private finance deal going on.
  5. If you want me to agree that we have a worrying lack of stable of rugby league clubs then I'll agree with you. It doesn't mean that Toronto were ever on a sound footing, ever above board about paying bills and players, or only ceased to exist because of covid. The warning signs about, let's be polite, 'cashflow' were there from very early on in the project and they never went away.
  6. Be fair, if you were a Lancastrian, you'd want to find a way of hiding your shame.
  7. Toronto were avoiding paying bills long before Covid.
  8. I deleted all the unnecessary words from your post.
  9. Yup. Supported Salford as a child as, as the crow flies, they were sort of the nearest to my front door and Dad (a Man United fan) liked that they were called the Red Devils. Moved away from the north in the early 90s, RL went a bit weird, sort of fell out with the game. Went to a London Broncos game at the Stoop in 1999 and have supported them ever since.
  10. See the comment from @Northern Eelabove. If you're practicing something unhelpful then it's more than likely you'll get worse. Or if your practice doesn't also include how to practically use what you're learning then it will be so inefficient you may feel you'll get worse.
  11. Coaching comes in different forms and I find it interesting what sticks and what doesn't. I am, in my own way, training for a marathon (Manchester, 3rd April, somewhat to exceptionally nervous). I'm following an online training plan for that because I know that I don't need anything else. But to get to that point I did actually take a lot from going for club runs and a lot of what has helped me get to the point I'm at now came from comments from the coaches about seemingly very minor things I was doing that, once I was aware of and able to adjust, have made a massive difference. And they were simply not things I would have ever even considered. There may not be skill things you need to learn with darts but there could easily be "process before the throw" or distraction/visualisation techniques that are out there that will mean you stop focusing on which bit isn't working and are just more able to execute what you know you can do more times than not.
  12. Are you in the UK and/or using a VPN?
  13. Opening post of this topic has the video
  14. Fairly certain that's how Non League Day in football started. It was, from memory, initially a lot of clubs using social media going, "Now that Manchester United aren't on the TV this weekend, why not come down to us for your football fix" and similar.
  15. This is all excellent and makes me very envious that within a reasonable drive of here I have precisely two parkruns: Hastings and Bedgebury. Just as well I really do like the Hastings one. I am, hopefully, at my parents next weekend though which will mean a return visit to Banbury's rather fun parkrun. This will be my fifth run there and I'll be hoping to beat my previous best of 24:14 there - but not exactly confident of doing so.
  16. To be 'real', there's no appetite to play or watch RL across the vast majority of Yorkshire and Lancashire.
  17. Rugby league being advertised in front of people who might be interested in watching rugby league but who would otherwise not know it's on - i.e. rugby union fans watching Channel 4 - is a win for rugby league.
  18. As a lifelong supporter of Werder Bremen since the Bundesliga returned before the other leagues after lockdown, I am well aware of this. Bit disappointed that Sky have taken the Bundesliga rights but aren't showing 2. Bundesliga matches as BT did when they had the rights.
  19. Yorkshire have formed a partnership with Lahore so I will be following them.
  20. I shouldn't be surprised because they obviously know what they are doing but I like how naturally Channel 4 rugby league suddenly looks.
