Re: The Pink city

So you’re making a point about games on TV despite not actually watching one for years? yes, cos i just need to come on here and read what all the armchair pundits say about sky. No-one has a good word for sky, so dont think i really need to look much further :) and i still stand by the point i am ...

Re: The Pink city

Are you ignoring the new real time stats that they are now showing in Super League games? to be honest i couldnt tell you the last time i watched a game on sky, and i am talking seasons, not weeks the general point still stands though.

Re: The Pink city

Toulouse being in SL isn't the issue for me it's just highlights the issue that's already there. The fans just don't turn up anymore and don't have the same level of commitment to activities and hobbies The sport needs to find a way to appeal to the fans that have the attention span of a goldfish (...

Re: Sts v Leeds

Does he really? I do accept Roby had some quiet games against us when MM played but how long ago was that?

Re: What are the challenges / issues Rugby League is facing?
