    surely if cricket, infiltrated by Union lol, really wanted to sabotage the RLWC final they'd have played the second test in Brisbane not in Adelaide? Its a Stretch this one if for a nutcase like you

    Ok so Pat Howard is the general manager for team performance with cricket Australia. I’m not sure he is going to have any sway when it comes to scheduling an event that has to work for Australian and British broadcasters.
    You are asking someone else but it is you that has made the claim and should be telling us.

    I remember watching the game and eating breakfast in an Irish bar in Tallin so it was certainly an early game.
    I don’t think many people were watching either the RLWC or Ashes at that time.

    More than 150000 viewers PR! And that's my take on it. Too much coincidence involved and given the track record of union it's not beyond these very determined and manipulative types of people.

    YES. Very true Timmah. And I'm glad you could search that up. And from that I was relieved this happened. The Australia wide numbers were necessarily impacted by the Ashes/World cup clash. Instead of the rugby league world cup final reaching genuinely impressive numbers of 4 million in Australia it was significantly less in audience number. If you could provide those figures that would be appreciated?
    Quite often, I've relied on OZTAM numbers and other posters are not fans of their figures. Thanks in advance.

    So we've gone from Union stopping league being played in NZ schools, to Union planting people in Cricket Australia to disrupt the RLWC final. Whats next? I cant wait to see what the fertile imagination of Stallion comes up with next!

    You don't have the option of choosing where the figures come from. They are the ratings figures for that night and the only data available.

    Please refrain from posting incendiary claims like "4 million" which is both unrealistic and unfounded and stick to genuine debate.

    Stallion, what you need to understand is that the examples you've provided don't qualify as evidence to support your claim regarding the Ashes v RLWCF scheduling.

    There is little doubting the examples provided above are true - that's not what people opposing your conspiracy theory are disputing. Your claim alleges collusion which is a fairly serious allegation - to make it you need evidence of this instance, not other events.

    ? Rugby union world cup final achieved just over 4 million! ? Given that rugbyleague is a superior tv product ,those figures are low as an estimate and comparison. (logically speaking that is)

    You're using an example from 14 years prior, it's not relevant.

    I do qualify that this is a personal observation? If I can't make reasonably valid assumptions where and when does discussion occur? There is a logic given the depths to which union manouverings have realised in other scenarios. I'm happy to refer to it as a hunch and continue with the discourse. Understand that their may be differing views but that's what the idea of the observation was aimed to do. Generate a discourse and an awareness that would most probably have slided through to the keeper.

    You need to err on the side of caution and make clear what you are putting forward as a theory is just that. Thus far you've presented several instances as claims of fact.

    I disagree with that Timmah. I'm aware it's 14 years difference however it was in Australia and was a football code world cup final. I think it's a fair comparison given their is nothing else.

    That is where the similarities end.

    Yes. Agree and will do so. Something like that I will highlight as a theory and personal observation. I'm good under those rules . Thanks Timmah.

    Maybe you should grow up if you can't take some light ribbing. Jesus Christ.

    Look over past threads in the international forum and see how quickly Stallion goes from talking conspiracy nonsense to accusing everyone of not being fans and being union spies and other rubbish. Then see how quickly the thread fills up with repetitive garbage because he won't shut up about things we have covered over and over again. 'Don't you know it's an outrage the Lions aren't playing in Australia?!' yes Stallion, we know this, we agree, we went over this months ago - continuously whinging, taking over conversations and calling us pathetic excuses for fans is not going to help anything.

    I think you'll find he's the one acting like a petulant child. Besides, most of the name calling towards him and others goes on in the NRL forum and other forums. For some reason I never see you hijack threads in the NRL forum where there is constant abuse towards people like I Bleed Maroon.

    'I didn't call him names and bitch and moan like a pathetic moron. Grow up.'

    Geez, what a hypocrite. Don't call him names you pathetic moron!!
