Them BBC comments are hilarious, funnily enough just reading them now, I used to comment on there but don't even bother anymore, just too full of idiots that don't listen to facts.

A new BBC comments thread has opened for 'Toronto Wolfpack: Super League vision achieved - what next for Canada's rugby league club?'

I don't think our friends have yet noticed.

Still,he's actually helped out,as most of his posts get blocked by the BBC but the total number of posts is now over 200.I'm sure someone on here will know more about him as it appears he has been blocked from other rl sites.It appears he comes on here but doesn't post,as he makes referance to this site in his BBC postings.

its probably parky.

They've now arrived, full of negativity.

You can usually tell whether someone is against this kind of expansion, but cares about the game and is able to argue their viewpoint, and the people here who are simply anti-RL, perhaps also fearful of RL's potential

3 minutes ago, RL does what Sky says said:

An article about the women's SEMI-FINAL is shown on the BBC Sport website yet nothing about the League 1 FINAL !!!

I never really understand your logic in these situations. It is ok to be disappointed/angry that the BBC are not reporting the League 1 final without suggesting it should be instead of the women's semi final.

They could have reported both.

I never said instead of .. yet that is what they have actually done.  Both would have been OK ... but why a semi-final yet not a final ?

What are you babbling on about - (Wrong as Usual??)

I said BBC news - as in the TV sport section of the evening news. I didnt think it was worth starting a new topic on BBC TV when there was already one on the online content.

So as usual you are talking gibberish 🤣🤣 marra!

Just complained to the BBC about a post on the rugby league section of its website referring to rugby league followers as 'Mungoballers'. No action required, moderators have decided. What does that tell you about the BBC? Maybe nothing we don't know already...

EDIT: having queried the BBC's decision (and indicated I'd make a formal complaint), I've just received the following: Further to your complaint about some of the content on a BBC web site (reference number P39554155), we have decided that it does indeed contravene the House Rules and have removed the offending material. Thank you for pointing this out to us.

Well 2 things.  I've never heard it before and presumably it's derogatory of RL fans and players... usually from RU fans(?)

2nd... What a load of typical ape####  from the BBC.  I am furious.   Well done for complaining and threatening a formal complaint.  The BBC is openly slanted in in the way it pushes its own different agendas.

... In my humble opinion.

One is a third level competition the other is a top level competition. With the current trend of BBC thinking it is clear which is considered more important. Obviously the BBC RL correspondent did not find the league 1 final newsworthy

I suppose it all depends on what different people consider to be "top level". I doubt many would consider the BARLA National cup final to be more important than the Challenge Cup semi-finals even though it is the top level of their particular section of the game.

As you rightly say, a lot of what the BBC decide to cover is down to their own agenda and irrespective of what is of more importance to those who actually watch the game.

Earlier this season the BBC again didn't find League 1 newsworthy when they stopped giving live updated scores from that division - until I wrote to Ofcom about the situation and who then ensured the service was reinstated (see earlier in this thread).

Why are you so offended by the term “mungoballers”? I have never seen or heard the term before, what does it even mean?

Something I learned from my Australian sister-in-law, who hails from Brisbane (and prefers rugby union). Similar to Bogan, it was used, in the BBC HYS post, by an individual who appears to be based in Australia. Mungo was/is low grade cloth. Maybe comes from that.

Was told by an Aussie that 'mungoballers' is a derogatory term for rugby league players/supporters used by union supporters in Australia.


Jam Eater  1.(noun. jam eeter) A Resident of Whitehaven or Workington. Offensive.  It is now a term of abuse that both towns of West Cumbria use for each other especially at Workington/Whitehaven rugby league derby matches.

I've been aware of RL players and fans being called "Mungoes" by Australian RU windbags for years. Thankfully, the latter are getting thinner on the ground every year as they die off, either from boredom or decrepitude.

Decided to post something positive but noticed someone complaining that tickets to Toronto cost £200. Lordy. I’m going to Leeds tomorrow by train and it’s more than that. The closeness of most RL teams around M62 means reduced costs to away games.

I just added a positive comment as well.  Have to redress the balance a little.
