Re: Season at risk of finishing early

I would think what by August all the seriously at risk people will have had the vaccine along with a couple of levels lower so the most hardy will probably be the only ones left to vaccinate. I would hope that by that point we are at least back to some sort of contact with others will be allowed so ...

Re: Season at risk of finishing early

The lack of a proper testing regime (which is a newsflash to me as I'd always assumed there was one) is reason alone to can the season/never have started the season in the first place. My six-year-old daughter and the rest of her class bubble are missing out on the education they deserve, while a s...

Re: Season at risk of finishing early

There are three times in the past where we have effectively said we can not afford to continue playing. You don't just get a free pass of "that's fine, come back when you are ready". If the decision is not 3, as is our preference we can by all means furlough and shut down but we will be a) fined fo...

Re: Season at risk of finishing early

It’s absolutely shocking from the DCMS & the National League. Either party may not have specifically said that the funding would not be in the form of loans distributed to clubs, but it is not reasonable to have ever expected this to occur. If we were to continue to be funded at the same level as O...

Re: Rugby League

Kingston Park would not be bog enough for the Magic Weekend, even if crowds are allowed to return as normal. SL fans would not be keen on having to get a bus or metro out to the suburbs. The whole idea of the Magic Weekend is to hold it in a city centre, where fans can meet & socialise, I have been...

Re: Rugby League

Getting rid of "loop" games brings it down to 22 games from 27 for the bottom half and drop the play off's to top 3 only. 2 play 3 and winner play the Champions. it really is not rocket science. The only reason to move magic is if we still can't have fans in so try an either or date. If no fans allo...

[Spenn 66 Its a bit like agreeing to buy a house, when you only have a job for 3 months and no employment agreed beyond that period.

My point is an issue like this, which is about the identity of the club, should be available to all fans.

Re: Home Kit Vote

Why not spilt the difference between hoops and plain White by going back to the 1970s shirt with 3 bands across the chest? Nop, lets have the 66-68 not the 68-71. The thinner hoops on the first shirt looked far more "proper". The second effort always looked a bit "frumpy" and "washed out" to me. Th...

If a majority of the fanbase prefer them (and they do as hoops has won every vote for years) and see them as our identity, why should it be abandon...

Re: Shorter games ?

Don't agree,there have always been technically gifted players but they are, I'm sure fitter now.

Real tough players abounded and ...
