  1. Who are "the Hetheringtons"? There's only one of them, and with his No. 2 they've already acted. FWIW I don't hold out too much hope from this game for Leeds. They need a couple of lucky breaks if they are to start getting the confidence together to win games.
  2. TBH it would need to be a very good game to get me to go and watch Leeds at Elland Road again. It's an awful ground, in the wrong place for Leeds with terrible access and an average atmosphere. OK for internationals, I suppose, but Leeds haven't spent £45m on Headingley to spend more money renting a ground south of the river.
  3. What exactly is YK trying to distract from with his latest posts? What is the relevance of someone who died 50 years ago to the current issues of the current Republican party? 50 years ago Nelson Rockefeller was a Republican, the Dixiecrats hadn't yet fully switched en-masse from the Democratic party to the Republican party and through the '70s most Republicans were pro choice. A lot has changed since then. One thing is that the far right is now fully enmeshed in the Republican party where before it was outside it.
  4. If you're going to keep the conferences local you can't split up Leeds and Cas!
  5. First GOP congressman to agree Trump has "engaged in impeachable conduct".
  6. Brexit summed up. Facts aren't facts in this parallel world.
  7. You've had so many facts presented to you and you've dismissed them all. As you say, being presented with the facts makes you more determined to not believe them. It's not really worth going through them all again when there is no chance of the truth ever getting through. And it's nothing at all to do with "standing on our own two feet", what an absurd way to even begin to try and understand international relations and the reality of modern trade. It's this sort of relentless attempt to try and overlay childish simplicity to profoundly complicated issues that helps get Brexiteers that reputation for not being the brightest tools in the box.
  8. Because their careless (putting it politely), actions are bringing this country to its knees. And they will never, ever, ever accept the consequences. It will seemingly always be someone else's fault and they will seemingly always be the victims whilst smearing others for caring too much, knowing too much or empathising too much.
  9. Douchebag, corrupt Republicans keep popping up in my non-American politics reading. Rep Sam Graves (R-MO), a fully paid up spokesman for the Boeing Corporation, decides that foreign pilots were responsible for the 737 Max crashes, that American pilots would have been just fine, setting the stage for Boeing's legal defence. The newly-elected governor of Alaska has decided that the remote communities of Alaska's south east no longer need the services of the state-operated ferry service which is their only means of transport and has defunded the system in its entirity from October, suggesting modern transportation methods be used instead. Like roads. (There are no roads).
  10. It depends on how the cash reserves have ended up following the redevelopment but I can't imagine Leeds will be able to withstand huge reductions in RL-related income just after massively expanding the coaching and playing budgets without Caddick having to find a bit of cash. He hasn't had to put cash into Leeds since the original cash injection back in 1997 but when firing on all cylinders the club is a valuable entity so it's hard to imagine he wouldn't find the funding if required. I've seen it above and saw it on rlfans that the club should have a new coach in place already. Bonkers. If it's to be a permanent appointment they need to take their time and do some proper due diligence over this, not just choose the first available coach. A stop-gap to the end of the season may be more appropriate - in which case John Kear might be getting a phone call.
  11. Brexiteers are also obsessed, absolutely obsessed, with framing themselves as victims.
  12. The obsessive delusional harking back to wartime terminology is utterly pathetic and very terrifying. They are our neighbours and our friends - peaceful, tolerant neighbours and friends who have bent over backwards to accommodate our wanting to be special members of the EU for decades. The nationalist rhetoric of many Brexiteers all too often reveals their real, deeply unpleasant, reasons.
  13. Thought Stuart Pyke was competent but a bit local radio-ish. Would still like Richard Stead to be given a go.
  14. Obama told Trump not to hire Flynn and was, predictably, ignored. Because Trump is a moron who will lie after the event to try and claim he is a victim.
  15. Elections have consequences. This should get shot down by some lower federal court and then it'll be interesting if the Supremes take any interest in taking it up.
  16. Repeating it over and over doesn't make it true you know.
  17. That's not too surprising tbh based on my experience with the Leeds ticket office. The retail side of the business always seems to be a bit of an underperformer. We have a group of five seats and none of us have yet received the new cards which are supposed to be coming to us to get us into the new stand next Thursday.
  18. For some reason Trump keeps falsely claiming his father, who was a mean and nasty piece of work (and about whom Woody Guthrie wrote his song, 'Old Man Trump'), was born in Germany. https://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2019/apr/04/donald-trump/despite-what-donald-trump-keeps-saying-his-father-/
  19. There was a heated discussion about it because it's a right wing piece of **** about a kid who had to hide from the Nazis to survive. Referencing it in passing perpetuates the myth.
  20. Looks to me like Leeds are struggling to shift tickets for the north stand opening game against Cas a week today. Plenty of availability all around the ground including the new stand which would be a bit embarrassing. Today they've taken large chunks of the, unsold as of yesterday, wing bits of that stand off sale which may mean they've decided to give them away to schools or something to save the red faces. Still plenty left in the other blocks though if you fancy sitting in Rugby League's most expensive stand (measured as cost to build per seat) on opening night and to witness the start of the hugely successful Agar Era .
  21. With respect it looks like you don't have much clue about the internal workings of Leeds.
  22. Trump's lies and corruption have become so commonplace that we've become a bit immune to tracking them every day. Here's today's little bit of pay to play.
  23. I would be genuinely astonished if Leeds appointed Wane. I can't imagine an appointment more designed to annoy fans than that, even Agar would be better. Sometimes you have to factor in whether your customers will accept an appointment. Putting to one side his style of play, Wane going on record saying when he played for Leeds that he couldn't motivate himself because it was Wigan or nothing for him should still be a warning sign about how effective he would be outside his natural environment.
  24. Tony Smith is available Quite shocking this but he just hasn't made an impact. The squad is lacking but it's not that lacking. A top quality coach would have given some indication of improvement in the team's performance or of addressing the huge psychological weakness they've shown all year. After watching Friday's awful showing at Salford I find it hard to disagree with this decision. Richard Agar however cannot be the answer.
