This sub-board is our safe space

Recommended Posts

Well with every thread about TWP either getting locked, deleted or hijacked on the main board.  This seems like our only bastion.

I for one am slightly perturbed with this forum at times.  Feel the refs aren't totally neutral, especially with the regular putain merde coming out of certain posters mouths.

Yeah it's kind of driven me to check the forum less and less as every thread devolves into the same thing.

I had the same problem with the Facebook group. I was pretty active on that board but the amount of negativity on every single post just got to me so I had to leave it.

There is also a trend of TWP threads being the most active. Its because we're new, exciting, and provocative...simply by being new and exciting and well not dying. Except for 2020...that's definitely our year to go bust.

End of day it is the magical internet where most of the people on it are there just to #####, complain and be negative and nasty...it's what it is. I've been gone for a while also and I'll likely take a bit of a break over the off seas as its just a breading ground for boredom complaints.

Let's be honest, SL is going to be the best this year because of us. Just because of all the global attention (right before the TV deal negotiations mind you) and the fact it's a new team, new fans, new approach. The locals will come our of the caves and see the light, a few will stay in but hey, their time is limited on this rock. Let's focus on the next generation.

It's just so much fun to tie him in knots!!

One leads to the other.

If you think someone is trolling, just report it to a moderator. Never respond.

If you don't report it, and instead respond to it, you're adding to the problem, which is why threads get dragged off topic and end up being locked, because the mods don't have time to keep filleting out all the rubbish to keep them open.

The earlier a problem is reported, the quicker it will be dealt with and the stronger likelihood that the entire thread won't be locked.

Hope this helps.

The more resistance we meet means we are getting closer to our goal!   One must expect this, especailly when some of the famous old clubs actually begin to understand that we intend to be dominant.....its actually a good sign.

Don't let them get to you...WE ARE WINNING!!!!

I’m with you when it comes to Parky. Best thing to do is ignore him. Every reply just invites another nonsense post that takes up half a page.

Agreed; put him on ignore. Any attention you give him (by arguing or just laughing at him) makes him come back with more of exactly the same as last time.

A lot of the anti-Toronto feeling comes from a minority, but they post so constantly it feels like there's more of them than there really are.

That is the reality. Most RL folk are following the rise of TWP with interest and aren't anti -Toronto. We should all be pro RL no matter which team is playing it and wherever in the world it is played. A small minority of fans with an axe to grind may beg to differ but that's thier prerogative.

SBW biggest news to hit SL since, forever!  

Doesn't matter, thread gets deleted.  Weak sauce!

I have walked in the streets of Manchester on the grand final weekend, wearing Wolfpack colours. I only received positive comments, even more so at the stadium during and after the game. 

What we can read on the main board does not represent what most RL fans think about our project, at least the fans that actually go to the games and proudly wear their club colours.

Quick side not as it seems to have passed over peoples heads but what about the reported Netflix series that's happening with SBW (Superleage Bow Down!) being a focus in? Anyone else excited about it? I wonder if it will be a stand alone mini series throughout the seas like in season 1 (Last Tackle I believe) or just an episode in one of their current shows.

Another fine example of the trash that gives this forum a bad name.

Calm down , I assume you saw the laughing emoticon , I wish you all the best next year , but you have to understand , you can only read so much male genitals before you get fed up of it , yes you've done well bringing in Sonny Bill , and yes you've brought media attention to the sport , will you ' save ' us ? , No 

I won't trouble you again , another for the ignore button , bye

As Mr. Drake says, Parky and his fellow Legion of Doomers aren't worth the trouble, so you have to bite your figurative tongue. Parky's on Ignore, but the others you can still talk to. He must embarrass them too. There's probably nothing worse for your argument than having Parky chime in to 'support' you.
