  1. Blue skies now and the wind appears to have dropped. British weather, what can you do ?
  2. The guy most likely to win you a game - Wally Lewis. Right behind him Alex Murphy. Best prop I ever saw Arthur Beetson. There's too many bloody good players from the old days to mention, Neil Fox, Bobby Fulton, Frank Myler, Roger the Dodger, Paul Charlton was a great full back in his day as was Graham Eadie. Stevo was the best hooker I ever saw.
  3. A very wise decision. The weather conditions are horrendous over here. There must have been worse gales but it's as bad as I've seen for a long while. The game would have been a joke if it had have gone ahead. Just hoping my roof slates stay on !
  4. I can't see us playing today. Disregarding everything else the ball will be almost uncontrollable in the the gale force winds. An early decision needs to be made so York Acorn fans don't end up making a pointless journey in really bad travelling conditions.
  5. He could have gone all the way as a young player. He was outstanding at Hornets for a season or two then seemed to lose his way. He had size, speed and a good rugby brain.
  6. My posting is a bit late also. He was a great player from the era when a bit of biff was part and parcel of the game. I remember him coming to play us at the old Athletic Grounds. He must have punched every Hornets player at least once ! He was a rough and tough lad but he could play as well.
  7. " Pipeline " by The Chantays. " Last Night " by The Markeys.
  8. They'll need to pay us the compo they owe us for the pitch cock ups first. The CEO we have has done a good job regarding our finances. In last weeks AGM chaos that fact that our debt as been reduced from £20,000 to £1,000 in one season seemed to go unnoticed. We'll need somebody with a good grasp of the finances even more next season.
  9. An official league game must trump a pre season run out.
  10. I think that tells me you weren't there. A lot of people had walked out in disgust by then. I would have thought they would have been the ones originally intending to vote for the 9 man board. There must have been 60 to 70 people at the meeting. What about all the members that weren't there ? They didn't get a vote at all. This is really a red herring anyway, it was totally against the rules to have a show of hands in the first place.
  11. That's a kind offer and I've enjoyed both my visits this season. It's a good club. Unfortunately I'm a bit " Rugby Leagued out " at the moment.
  12. That's my view also, maybe wiser councils will prevail. I always thought that 6 wasn't enough members given we are a summer game now and most people go away for at least a fortnight plus illnesses and all the other things that occur when you have other calls on your time.
  13. I don't think I'm the first and I don't think I'll be the last either.
  14. But it wasn't. The " show of hands " was chaotic, people had already walked out by then.The members who weren't at the meeting were totally excluded from having a say in the issue. The meeting should have been temporarily suspended, the issue put to another ballot of members, and the meeting reconvened at a later date for the results of that ballot to be announced. That is the democratic way to proceed with the issue. Peter Rush's " 32 proxy votes " and Paul Ormerod losing his cool and verbally brandishing his " £ 175 k votes " left a bad taste in my mouth and the mouth's of many other members there. That isn't democracy and it's not why I joined the members club back in the day.
  15. The low point for me was when the " chairman " was asked " Were you at the board meeting that endorsed the increase of board members from 6 to 9 ? " He answered " Yes ". He was then asked " Did you vote for the increase ? " Again he answered " Yes ". This is the same " chairman " who was busy using his 32 proxy votes to reverse the decision that he'd actually voted for ! I know, you couldn't make it up. That was when I decided enough was enough and it was time for me to find something better to do with my time.
