  1. Exactly the fact that the club haven't commented other than to name Chris is a sign of their professionalism. The fact that rumours and conjecture are sourced from outside suggest that the rejected party is a bit bitter and probably nursing his ego after er his rejection. Feeling the need to stir the curd in order to save face. CHRIS THORMAN is the coach and that's all that matters.
  2. I'd guess that would create significant pressure on cash flow as the comets probably paid after meetings etc which were regular id guess. In a business where win/loss appearance fees fluctuate per game then i'd say they've done a good job too mate.
  3. 50k is 50k and I'm sure pre signing deadline being able to dip into 50k surplus would have significantly helped the club thicken the squad out towards the latter end of the year, or make ground improvements or repairs. But if 50k is a viewed by you as nothing I'd suggest you give the club a ring and i'm sure Messrs Smallwood etc would like to talk with you.
  4. Hope that's true, young and articulate whenever I've spoke to him. Seems a very switched on guy all round.
  5. So what point are you trying to make, I'm not following this....
  6. Missed out on, or won't have a go? Big difference
  7. Surely your having a wind up pal. Elliott Miller is the best all round player we have. He deserves the opportunity to regain his place as first on the sheet, he's come back from major injury before when he hurt his back. He'll do it again.
  8. I don't think it's that, just different era's or phases in these players careers they come into contact with different people/coaches. Jonty is the past at Town, well respected and always will be at the club but at the moment the future is Thorman and Murdock so let's see what that brings and support it.
  9. Well done Caine, Town have done well to secure such a good player for next season.
  10. And how would you know this? A couple of your posts suggest you were close to the club goings on for a while and if so maybe it's better you let the club move on. If you're still involved then maybe it's time to leave as your not helping anyone. Not a good place to be is bitter, you live in misery when in fact the people your bitter with just move on.
  11. Nope but he brought in ultimately poor options in Tansey/Foster. You can't guarantee success on signings.
  12. I'm not really bothered about the comparison to Union or Football. I'm only concerned in seeing the club i support prosper and I'm sorry but they never will if it's ok to skip training, buses or whatever without penalty. I'm more concerned that when I pay my entrance money and sponsor a game which invariably helps the club fund the wages of players that they act professionally, respect their teammates, the board and the contracts they sign. I too watch the game because of the commitment and discipline shown, but that should be mirrored of it.
  13. Agree with you in some of these thoughts. It's a conundrum though SS, one on hand there's the: Don't train, don't play opinion - if you choose a professional life and that's the consequence of taking supporters and sponsors good money. You get good wages for playing a sport you once trained and played for nothing, you get a better standard of house, car and other of lifes luxuries. Then you have the: cut them some slack, it's a hard life brigade but also criticise when we are low on numbers, but in fact it's a second job and if you don't attend your day job there's a consequence, why should playing Rugby be any different. Me personally, I'm all for the club being professional and if those players are from out of county, mars, the moon I really don't care as long as they treat the paying public and the profession the respect they deserve. Interesting and exciting times at DP.
  14. He may become the victim of the club literally being sick of players being unprofessional. It would be a shame as I do genuinely think his heart is in it but sometimes enoughs enough. To let the club down when it's down to the bare bones is pretty poor. But if it's a sign of things to come then sometimes there is line in the sand drawn and a new era starts with a new approach. Incredibly bad timing from Rooke, an action he may live to regret.
  15. If your referring to Ryan then is Radio Cumbria not an official news feed then.? Suppose f you're looking to find fault you'll find it.
