DON'T SHOUT😀😀

By "we" you mean "you". The rest of us want the best team to win, even if that is Leeds or St Helens.

 

Actually,  I suspect that may be the minority view John. 

Most people are not interested in the winners being the best,  they will have their own preference.  Mine is to support underdogs,  so I'll be hoping Leeds win a classic.

Saints are the best team this year,  but I'm OK for them to lose.

Not me now thanks, will do something else.

I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.

So that's three, so far. 

I think plenty of us would want some new winners. As a Wire fan I'd love to win it. 

I wanted Catalans to win it last year. 

But I won't act like a stroppy child if a new team doesn't. 

That's not how sport works,  we don't get to handlick who makes finals,  or who wins,  that's why sport is so interesting and addictive. 

I expect wanting a new winner is common,  claiming you're not interested in Leeds v Saints is a different point.

Point taken. What triggered my post was the aggressive approach of the poster claiming to speak on the behalf of every fan.

It’s not as though clubs don’t have a chance to win the Grand Final or the Challenge Cup. We’ve had four different finalists across both competitions this year, six different Grand finalists in the last seven years, six consecutive different winners in the cup and ten different finalists in the past eight finals. In the last eight years, only Wakefield have failed to make at least one final. 

We’ve got the League Leaders against probably the form team in the competition on Saturday, so it should be a good final, without the added layers of stuff like Knowles and The RFL’s role In proceedings this week.

Yep,  this is my position on it all.  Hope is one of the biggest draws for me,  and at the start of the year a lot of clubs have reason to believe they can do something special. Even up to that last game,  Salford were very close.

I saw that and instantly thought of this thread lol. 

Once again instantly proving the "post a lot on TRL but isn't in touch with the rest of society" rule!

It is always worth remembering that. Normal people aren't creating usernames and icons and posting on here.

That applies even when we're right (and I am always right).
