  1. Hi all, I'll be at the Boot Room on Friday night between six and seven with a few copies of my book Two Tribes if you fancy getting a signed edition! See you there!
  2. Hi all, I'll be launching my book about 1997, Two Tribes, at the Head Of Steam in Huddersfield at 2pm on Saturday. It's a perfect location because we can all watch Catalans-St Helens together and then walk down to the match. You can find out more - and reserve a book - HERE Many thanks, see you at the weekend!
  3. Just wanted to let you know I'll be at the Head Of Steam at Huddersfield train station from 2pm on Saturday. Doing my first northern launch for my book about the Super League war, Two Tribes. More information HERE The Catalans game will be on a dedicated screen in the function room.

  5. The person concerned is called Mourad Dembi. He now has complete control of the Twitter and Facebook accounts and can shut them down any time he wants. So far, he has chosen not to. We got a message the other day on the FB page which I referred straight to him. I have absolutely no further involvement.
  6. I immediately hand over all assets to them to close down or continue with - which I did with algeria. I gave them everything and I don't go anywhere near it. At any stage when someone contacts me with credible information that they are starting the game, I hand over everything to them. If a website is built I continue paying for the hosting and I expect no involvement at all.

  8. And six countries have taken up the sport - or returned to the sport - since I set up the accounts. I hand over all the assets and walk away. Algeria will get a logo, a jersey design and about 1000 followers when they start.
  9. Great post. RFL and IRL may be pushed together by having a common enemy now A summer Nines series in British cities with teams called Samoa, Ireland, England, USA but using unknowns to mirror The Hundred ('The Nines") would be a great start to this new relationship. Sky want our sport to be more dynamic and forward thinking. That's the start. The international game must learn to do without NRL players if it is to realise its commercial ambitions.
  10. But those tactics drive down the value of the asset they are trying to buy. You destroy it and you get it cheaper.
  11. Simple: Nine and Fox don't want an upstart like SportsFlick entering the market. The NRL changed their rules for Nine and Fox and took the games off their own platforms to placate them. Nine and Fox run rugby league in Australia. Also the IRL want to commercialise their calendar. That means getting sponsors from event to event like other international sports and selling TV rights like other international sports. This is a threat to the NRL, who see the sport of rugby league as their exclusive commercial domain. So they are sabotaging the IRL and have already started recruiting people to value it for a hostile takeover.

  13. Here's some audio from the briefing https://player.whooshkaa.com/episode?id=845501
  14. Your definition of success is different than mine. No current team in a fulltime professional league - not successful. Sure it's probably BS. But it's my BS and I believe it. No-one else has to. Every team in Super League bar Catalans is pre-WWII and the sport has contracted from being coast to coast in Australia in 1995.
  15. If it hasn't still got a team in a fulltime professional competition, it's not a success.
