  1. I was talking about how to get rid of the problem. Your comment didn’t address that point. Anyone who has experienced prejudice can understand racism, if they choose to. I find many are so bogged down with fighting issues that they aren’t ready to talk solutions.
  2. When people fixate on the ethnicity of RL players, coaches etc. it seems to me they are highlighting racial differences and a reason to divide ourselves into separate groups. Rather than achieve what they hope for, ie racial harmony, it is divisive. We are all just humans sharing a planet. When a person doesn’t bother about the race of players or coaches beyond simply casually noticing, then they are truly non-prejudiced.
  3. Err, Handball is third I believe, behind Steindowning and Football.

  5. I like your optimistic spirit Kman.
  6. https://www.loverugbyleague.com/post/toronto-wolfpack-was-set-up-to-fail-says-brian-noble/ I think that analogy is a bit harsh but the terms the TWP club have been subjected to are unfair and self-serving IMO. It's not about making them fail but getting as much out of them as possible, for the SL team's benefit. It's far from being an even playing field. The NRL was good at it too. Hopefully SL (and the RFL) will see the error of its ways and be fair to all clubs in their competition.
  7. You clearly haven’t been the the AJ Bell Stadium for a Salford home game. Just kidding Salford fans.
  8. Toronto were in a hurry to get into SL so they couldn’t use local players. The point I got from Eric Perez is if they hang around in the Championship without pressuring themselves about SL, they can introduce a few Canadian players. If that costs them some competitiveness, so be it. Of course, even those local players will be a challenge to find unless some sort of structure and pathway is put in place.
  9. Thanks for that Manu and sorry for not answering sooner.
  10. My spelling didn't help.
  11. You may be making a good point but your comment was too lean on detail to add to my understanding of the situation.
  12. I'm sure that RL won’t have some divisions playing and not others. I also think this may be the last weekend with RL played before it joins other sports. If RL was to continue with limited crowds, only League One would be financially unaffected. I don’t expect that to happen, I saw the irony in the poorest suffering the least. That doesn’t happen very often in life.
  13. Just watched the game on delayed cove rage in NZ. I avoided the score to keep the game more exciting. At half time I thought Salford had no chance and even well into the second half thought Wigan would prevail. Well done Salford for hanging in and getting a much needed win.
  14. Do you live on pararie?
  15. Are you aware I was replying to concerns regarding the impact crowd limitation of 500 would affect RL clubs? I was pointing out that League 1 clubs wouldn’t be badly affected. Pricy got my point and replied with a reasoned response.
  16. A limit of 500 at a game wouldn't impact too much on League 1 attendances and therefore their income.
  17. I think ten years there would be some gain, but to get quality in depth would happen beyond that time frame, provided the work and money is put into it.
  18. RL was played in Halifax late 50s early 60s I believe.
  19. With the weather and an in form Giants, what a surprise. Done without SBW too.
  20. The whole point of having teams like the WP go through two divisions to make the top flight was to prepare then for SL. Unfortunately, it seems after two years Toronto ended up with a club not as prepared as they should have been. The learning has started in 2020. I wonder if the Championship is a better place to start. A tougher first season would perhaps achieve more in the long run.
  21. Sport is in the entertainment business. I watched the Wire Cas game the other day and it was riveting.
  22. Doing long outstanding jobs can still be difficult even if you have the time. Once started, it’s Ok but that’s the challenge, getting started. A deep breath and into it.
  23. Thanks for that Trieze. I expected an estimate was the most likely scenario, considering the unusual situation of playing at a neutral ground.
