    Foxtel Sports aka Kayo

    I honestly can't understand why with all the competition from Internet TV streaming services Foxtel prices haven't come down to better compete with them. Its a cash cow Most of their base doesnt comparison shop so cutting the price except to get new customers doesnt make sense Foxtel (assuming it makes money) now funds some developing product Also better for foxtel that they cannibalise their market than some competitor

    Tim Smith v Cam Pedersen

    I suppose it comes down to scope for growth and development. I think with Pedo he got everything out that he had / no more development But with Smith they must see scope for growth For mine both pedo and smith dont fit anymore - not big enough to be keys not fast enough or enough tricks for small / medium fwds

    New Major Sponsor - Jaguar CONFIRMED

    The past is often imagined to be better. Looked at objectively the players were far less athletic the skills generally poor the facilities were rubbish and the behaviour of spectators and players crude and often loutish. There were no tactics and little structure apart from "get on your man". Coaching was something else. The torpedo has disappeared apparently but frost hunt and dunne disagree and on the evidence it has a place. Drop kicks are gone but drop punts are much more reliable. New forms of goal kicking have evolved in the banana round the corner and the dribbler. We of a certain age hark back to the 60s and 70's more generally we live better longer and safer. I miss seeing league teams and the replay after the game but i couldnt record the game see highlights on youtube or see interviews with favourite players and so much more Sorry to rain on the nostalgia parade!
