  2. It will be interesting to see what develops there...Ottawa is a great party town but I don't know if they are ready for the Bearman on a tear...just don't know if there are enough cops in the city to handle it Oldtimer! By the way there is a large female black bear that keeps tearing down my birdfeeder...any suggestions...and don't say stop putting our feed...its not fair for the Cardinals!
  3. Newcomers will not be welcomed...especially those from another country. We saw all the same old statements with Toronto...just change Toronto to Toulouse and there is no difference.....sad.

  11. Just as a change of topic of "what the situation is currently" my wife has went to concrete basement....strong winds...getting smacked with a tornado a the moment I believe...lots of lightning and thunder...will lose power soon..... Now back to the Whitehaven situation.....
  12. I really hope it doesn't but i think that it might. I've been following from a distance what is going on and I hate to say it but some folks clearly predicted the lowered TV contract etc. There does not seem to be much vision or an ability to have a good long term plan and then the fortitude to carry it out.....if Toronto was still in the SL I think these things would have certainly played out differently and for the better. I guess some folks just don't like new things and then balk.
  13. It started off as a weird new idea, caught on, once in SL promised funding was welched on, could have been a great success for everyone involved but it devolved due to indifference from Elstone et al. and bills were not paid etc. History will view it as a huge missed opportunity by SL and RL in general....in the long term it may be seen/probably will be seen as a fatal error not to go with it.....too bad really. Sad.
  14. Well when it happened to Toronto they were kicked out of the League, had their record expunged....name removed from everything....had to go bankrupt and totally abandoned by pretty well everyone.....I figure they probably want to have these penalties kept in place for about 200 years.....but maybe just 150 years. In the case of an English based club a light warning will probably suffice.
  15. What happened is that the Pack was blindsided and poisoned (by some animal cruelty dude named Elstone), suffered through some hard times and a few leans years...kills were few and far between The Pack suffered....BUT SURVIVED! The Pack Is Now Back! Soon the breeding program will begin again.
  16. I agree with you Rocket,,,,well said...the good hits and tackles are still there but not enough of the medium hitting././.alot more clutch and grab than before.
  17. It is too bad Toronto still wasn't in the comp......all of the things people are worrying about such as match day experience and a younger demographic, female attendance etc. were not issues...these were only some of the intangibles that Toronto brought to the game....too bad really.
  18. What happened to Toronto was a disgrace. Sure there were some big problems (Covid, etc) but the funding that was denied and generally the lack of co operation, actually putting barriers in place to the new club, was a tragedy of the highest order. This could have been handled and been successful but the various players in the drama (especially SL clubs and Elstone) failed the game. Good news...things are opening up again. Toronto is certainly viable in the future. The pause for Covid affected all sports to varying degrees and the general sporting public has developed a certain tolerance for slow reopenings etc. If SL and the RFL had their acts together this is still a saveable situation and actually a winner still if handled professionally. Its like a sad tragedy really...
  19. Any initiative which makes RL in Europe look even smaller and 'less international' is an error or the severest degrees. Look at what has happened since Toronto was cut adrift....the international exposure has fallen to for SL ....let us be over expectant...let us say say....something like 5% of what it was for SL etc. There is still a chance to promote a larger way of thinking (less nativism, etc). BRING TORONTO BACK! Take the calculated risk...COVID is waning. The lack of vision in SL circles in issues regarding this way of thinking is the biggest thing holding the game back...that and the petty greed of the smaller clubs as they have to worry about nickels and dimes . There would be sell out crowds over here for sure. Things are opening up and it appears a form of rebirth could be coming....this is the time....this is SL's chance. By the way, once things settle down I'm coming over for a few games....Leigh is on my list! I've got my second shot of Pfizer.
  20. Do as he says or her will have no choice but to call The Cameron down on ya.
