Re: Concussion in rugby

Perversely I think the NFL protocol of wearing helmets makes things worse in a way - it just gives a false sense of security that its ok to smash into someone head first for 3 hours every weekend (mainly running backs and linebackers, who probably do this for 20-30 plays a game). Even with the best...

Re: David Bowie - Ashes to Ashes

Browsing through and came across this. I can remember this day like it was yesterday. I'd been up all night working and had a BBC update come through at circa 5am. End of an exhausting night and the start of a miserable day. Still missed.

Re: Jokes revived

Oh go on then. This is my favourite joke, which probably says more about me than the joke. Works best in a Brummie accent. Q. What's the difference between a buffalo and a bison? A. You can't wash your hands in a buffalo. Snortle. Gonna have to be honest and say I'd have agreed with it being a york...

Re: Chaos in world rugby

As with others, there's too much dependence on wealthy individuals. We need to make sports sustainable. Take the large amounts of money out of football and rugby - transfer caps for example - and surely this will move towards bringing prices down too? Idk how it'll ever be resolved successfully.

Re: Threats made against Cohen

Absolutely disgusting. Why I don't agree with a lot of what he's apparently done, there is a line that should not be crossed and wishing death on someone is that. Feel this is symptomatic of so much in this bleeding country recently. Just nasty, reactionary comments. Let's be civil with those we dis...

Re: Loughborough University students will represent Tigers in the 7's.

Not a problem with this if it helps us scout some talent. With the start of the season basically a month away, it's just not worth risking anyone.

Re: Similarities between Spurs & Tigers ?

It's just common business sense isn't it? Don't know why sports teams seem to think the rules don't apply. Would rather have a sustainable team than no team at all!

Re: 'New' Laws

No 8s are finally going to have put the ball in straight and hookers are going to have to hook? Finally seems like the obvious rules are going to be enforced which can only be good

Re: The BBC - a continued failure

I think what's most shocking about thr BBC over the last couple of weeks is the bias they have shown for Labour in their reporting. They need reporting themselves to either Ofcom or Oftel. I'm surprised no other party has put in a complaint. On last nights 6.00pm bulletin. Every Election story star...

Re: New Kit

Nike, while a big brand, don't have a reputation for great kits. Look at their results in recent years over in football.

Re: The ultimate?

Feel like RWC comes out on top for me. Lions would be great, don't get me wrong, but competing against all other nations for the big one has to be the ultimate achievement in the game.
