  1. Honestly, apart from Langer's and benty I'm not too bothered about the others. The 4 that have gone to widnes are too good for 3rd tier anyway. I'm sure SL has an idea of who he wants and who he doesn't.
  2. I'll tell you what, instead of spouting the same old doom and gloom, how about we welcome John Roddy and see what happens. I've mentioned before that what's published in companies House tells you s0d all. So his company has changed its name 3 times, so what? What's ICI called now? Ooooo, well dodgy! It's a new era, we are down, but we're not out. I for one am excited by the appointment.
  3. Yeah, the previous regime destroyed our once great club.
  4. John Roddy, CEO of CDX appointed vice chairman.
  5. Rumour has it that you've signed Danny langtree from us. Hope its not true. But if it is then you've got one of the best forwards outside superleague.
  6. Took me a moment to realise you meant grand final. For a second I thought you were at your girl friend's.
  7. Hoping Barran stays. Showed potential. Barring injury he should improve this year.
  8. Commiserations ! Just keep plugging away. Just shows what money can do. A couple of things they'll never have though, class and history. You've accomplished things that they never will. Featherstone is part of the heartbeat that is Rugby League. They're just someone's investment. No heart no soul.
  9. Steve. 1980-85 Don't know if he's related.
  10. Good luck today, remember what the great Alex Murphy said, "Rugby league is a simple game, if you've got the ball you attack, if they've got the ball you defend". Play up the Colliers!
  11. St Helens population 102,00 beat Catalans , Perpignan population120,000. Imagine if it had been Oldham , population 237,00 v Rochdale population 212,000. I mean what could they have brought to the table?Oldham, home of the Northern Union for the first 30 years. The place where the modern rules were formulated, where Joseph Platt , son of Oldham father of rugby league, got the King to back rugby league. And the writer of the original post has the cheek to use use another son of Oldham as his moniker. Give me a break. Come on Fev, make it a double.
  12. Hmmm!? Does that mean he would combine the jobs? Is that the in to playing at BP? Will the protesters turn around and protest across the road!? The mind boggles.
  13. I'm sorry if this has been said in the previous 16 or so pages , but what a pompous and totally outrageous OP. We are Rugby League. The implication in the OP is that Featherstone will bring nothing to the table. I'm fuming. They will bring history, hard work and dedication. They will bring hope to the "little" teams. Featherstone have been knocking on the door for a decade. And though they may be viewed as an unfashionable small team from a small town ,in my eyes and many others they are giants. As an Oldham fan I look at Fev and see what is achievable. Oldham has a population of nearly 200,000, bigger than all but a handful of superleague teams, so the original post is nonsense. Using the population criteria would mean we should be in superleague. Come on Fev do it for the sake of Rugby League.
  14. TBH, I'm all for expansion. Providing it's natural expansion. I'm not at all into the type of expansion that's straight off someone's drawing board. What right has someone to say that Toulouse will be a better fit in SL than Featherstone? I agree that minimum standards should be met. But those standards should be consistent. I'm certain Fev outshine CAS and Wakefield in that department. Unfortunately those in power have one eye on the union game. They are trying to outdo twickers. Fev have done it the hard way, the right way. Wasn't that long ago Toulouse dropped out of the championship. Then they're invited back . No, that's not how it should be done. Now go out there and show the fake expansionists how it should be done.
