Certainly takes some of the shine off the event

To be fair, I had no real enthusiasm for the game even before this. I didn’t watch the CC final either. The focus of my interest in the sport has narrowed dramatically in recent years.

I doubt most watching on TV will care one way or another.

The 10-20 people who post on forums tend to take this kind of thing rather more seriously than the casual sports fan who will just be tuning n to watch a high profile sporting event.

I could not tell you anything about player bans or teams leading up to the NBA or NFL finals but I would still watch the games.
We can be bold enough to make a stand and do battle for our views and beliefs. But we must strive to be mature enough not to resort to unnecessary personal attacks upon people with opposing views.

There is only 1 good thing to come out of this;

Previously i couldn't support either team winning this GF, now at least I'll be able to cheer Leeds on and hope they stuff Stains.

It goes without saying that I'll be expecting Knowles to have most of his limbs twisted to the full extent of their natural positions - preferable all at the same time...............

Can’t disagree with that.

SL - the less you know, the easier it is to enjoy. :)
The more I think about that, the truer it feels.

On the subject of ignorance, one striking discovery I made in all this is that Morgan Knowles has been in the SL Dream Team in each of the last four years. I mean, I’ve heard his name and that but it was a bit bizarre to find out he’s been consistently the best loose forward in the competition for so long.

The build up to the game on TV will be a Jon Wilkin bore fest over this.

A lot of people within the game will tell you he's the best player in the competition. It's a bit odd that you don't rate him.

Well Jools we don't agree on much but I'm almost with you there but not quite, as under no circumstances will I bother to watch that game tomorrow, even Mc mAnus couldn't bribe me with one of his magic envelopes. :HAND:
The fans, the members, the people there.. from the day I stepped foot onto that field at the AJ Bell Stadium,I knew I would love that club for the rest of my life. "Jackson Hastings"..



Worry a little bit every day and in a lifetime you will lose a couple of years. If something is wrong, fix it if you can. But train yourself not to worry. Worry never fixes anything.

Yes, “a lot of people” from a certain Warrington postcode certainly will. zzzzz
