  1. The problem for TGG is not having a Mo it's not having enough of them. We do need Mo's without their club baggage though! When pundits talk about his ability to make the tough decisions this was true but only because it never affected Wigan.
  2. BH you were priviledged! Per Game I used to get that many per season playing K&C! He's a TGG legend he's no chance of the New Years Honours!
  3. Will a British Coach ever be a head coach in the NRL? No! Unless England win the WC and stuff the Aussies in their own back yard and mullers Queensland and NSW ! What do you reckon the chances are?
  4. They may have grasped the nettle finally but when you see the final implications for you club life can become a very different place. There are some sides who are regarded and regard themselves as invulnerable from and to the changes that affect everyone, and their view of world is always guided by well we'll be safe! If it is mainly based on structure change rather than gain sponsors, coverage income streams and changing the media's attitude to the sport ...... 12 Years Before the Mast!
  5. For those of you who aren't in the know this is the equivalent of the Mail doing a three page spread on RL.
  6. Beware of Twitter and the translations as well in that case!
  7. I've no doubt the Wolves will be fine. They are not a laughing stock anymore than Myler at Leeds. Taking the mick is just a part of RL culture as much as any other sport. Whether or not Powell will be given time to change what he needs to at the club is another matter. There is no doubt that change can have an adverse effect and they're missing Hill almost as much as Salford are missing Gil Dudson. I don't think they should lower their expectations and aspirations though.
  8. It's not just a measure of those making up and creating the test, it's a crystal clear symptom of the importance they're given and lack of any real substance. E Courses the new outsourcing!
  9. The point was not the rumour or whether or not he goes to Cas ... it's believing stuff on Twitter!
  10. You have to pay to vote ... well on that basis alone.
  11. The ones I liked best though were the ones where the information is misleading and even wrong so that when you go back to answer that question you still don't know the correct response.
  12. I think the pass score necessary on these is a bit of a give away about just how legitimate they are. If I listed all the ones I've done online, I'd look like a cross between gifted and talented, mensa and qualified for every job ever invented.
  13. You can never rule out player movements but if we're depending on Twitter ?????????
  14. "Accentuate the negative, Ignore the affirmative, Latch on to disadvantages ........"
  15. Harry I know the printed word can be unhelpful at times but I'm always a little anxious on match day. I think that doesn't make me stand out from the crowd.
  16. I'm sure you're right about that it just didn't seem normal for posters.
  17. I hesitated to say high level sponsors as I assumed you'd know I didn't mean Arkright's corner shop Trafford Road Salford.
  18. No It's not when it's this imprtant Damien. I count 16 pages as just enough for a run of the mill, common or garden, everyday issue like what Leigh's chairman is cross about this week.
  19. And I assumed IMG would be engaging sponsors for the game as a whole. If it means what I'm most suspicious of, I won't care either way.
  20. Well I asked Martyn if he could at least say if it was positive and I haven't seen his Martyn for dust. Details were short but that doesn't usually prevent posters basking in the heat of confusion, suspicion and dire expectation. The RFL is hardly the most transparent organisation and could give the present government and several of the previous ones a run for their money in this respect.
  21. I agree to some extent with what you say Toby but the viewing figures are much better than this statement suggests.
  22. It's interesting that this thread seems to have lost interest when it's a crucial and dramatic event.
