  1. Is there any news about Bridge, Joy and Bent?
  2. Has anyone heard anything about the council funding the Latics for a new pitch on the proviso that the Yeds will play at Boundary Park?
  3. Hopefully it's not "A Bridge too Far".
  4. The idea of expansion of our great game has been a dream for the 60 years I have been watching our great game. Sadly it hasn't happened. Justifying this argument where are Scarborough, Mansfield, Kent, Chorley, Carlisle, etc. they are all no longer playing semi-professional rugby never mind professional rugby. Newcastle is an exception. They have a wealthy chairman who funds both the RU and RL sides. SL now has all the money strings and they are only concerned about self and the rest will either struggle on a little bit longer or go bust. Looking at the amateur game, many cubs had two and some had three teams, now some struggle to field one side! The major cause I feel is summer rugby. Players in summer have too many other things to do but during winter there are fewer distractions. Another causal factor in the reduction of players is the demise of RL in the schools for whatever reason. To sort it out is a massive task of the RL but sadly they will continue to bury their heads in the sand until all that exists is SL That is until Sky pulls the plug!
  5. Surely CH MUST be talking to the existing squad to ensure we have team for next season. With regards to this Micky Mouse competition will the games be behind closed gates and is it open to all championship and first division sides? If it's open to everybody possibly just playing one game isn't worth the hassle for both players and spectators.
  6. So any idea when we will start? Do you think they might expunge all the results from this season and restart this season. If so I need to book my trip to Toulouse!

    How can you "be less poor" if you've got nowt?

    Whatever happened to the £16 million given to the sport so as to offset the loss of revenue? I am also acutely worried about the restart. Our crowds were abysmally poor before the lockdown and those who did suffer the games this season could have found better ways of spending their time and money. I hope I am wrong.
  9. Some of the suggestions being made are just ludicrous. A tap restart, as we now do after a 40/20, makes logical sense. The notion that a scrum takes 12 players out of the game so enabling the backs to have more space is really not in evidence in most games. I like the restarting the 6 tackles has its merits but I feel the 6 "new" tackles should be added to what remains from the previous six tackles. Unfortunately, some referees would find that difficult and holding a whistle at the same time.
  10. The answer is quite simple - money for the sooperdooperleague franchise pockets and stuff the rest.
  11. As blind side johnny says Beaumont is the only chairman outside of sooperdooperleague who argues against the unfairness of funding in our sport. Sooperdooperleague couldn't give a damn about the rest. Their only concern is self.
  12. All other sports are being talked about except for Rugby League. Does anyone know if this season is over or if not when will it restart.
  13. I watched NRL on SKY 145 and during the game the commentators made reference to how the new rules have almost halved the penalty count. Also, during the game a bell rung and a "reset" was announced and the attacking side restarted their 6 tackles. Anyone heard anything about these changes and if/when we will be using them?
  14. Holdsworth NEVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
  15. I've seen some bad referees in my 60 years of watching our great game but this guy must be by far the worst.
  16. I'm an Oldham fan and like all other clubs outside of sooperdooperleague are struggling for money just to survive. This coming season will be particularly har due to the fact we will only have 10 home games! What BISSA is doing is amazing! Please could someone who leading the group post me how you have raised so much for your great club. Great picture from Batley Bob - was that when Oldham threw the game or was it when the ref went home to tea with some of your lads? Only joking you JUST deserved to win.
  17. As you said Dave IGNORE! If we all do it the irritant will go away.
