Hello all!

I shall be remaining as I don't like the SN adverts site
So I have removed my trews and put on my boot!!

Stickies do exist, but I'm not sure if it needs a moderator to do it (I am a moderator, so I can see the button - I don't know if others can). @Alex should be able to tell you more.

I have come over and happy to do so as it's now the only game in town. Still finding my way around the functions and will no doubt soon become more adept at finding my round.

Not a fan of the dn forum as just like sports network it's very out of date and could do with a revamp . But fair enough not to have on here.

I'm not bothered about anything being out of date as long as it works. I haven't looked at the old site for a while & see it has been taken down again. How Sportnetwork think that helps anybody is beyond me. Absolute idiots.

I see Sportsnetwork is down again...does that mean we're making the move here permanently now?

I have found this site. All I need to be able to do now is get the icon onto my Tab S to make access easy and instant..

I notice that the Sale Sportnetwork site is now immune from requiring a story every 2 weeks, and now possibly ours too. This really is the final nail in the coffin as far as I am concerned. For blasted years, Aidan & myself have had to come up with content to keep the site alive, but now that they see we have finally had enough, they decide it doesn't matter anymore, or does it? The whole thing stinks. Do what they ask & you get punished, don't do what they ask & they let it go. They couldn't have a less customer-friendly policy if they tried.

Idiots!

After appearing on and checking this site for a few weeks, I too, actually prefer the sport network site.

I will still update my transfer and contracts thread, but will happily hand them over to someone else, if anyone wants to take up the mantle, as I will be looking less and less on here going forwards......

Im staying here!

i know someone has taken over admin for the SN site and many are staying put but bloody hell if that revamp is the best they can come up with then its proof that they cannot do anything with the site.
It would scrape a pass at GCSE but thats it.
Its just not a secure website.
Adverts still take over at least 1/3 of the page (cash comes first?)
I know people dont like change but come on.
Is the new admin on SN tied to the club? i hope not.
Any how i will post on here for what its worth. Who is staying here?
Looking at other teams i do think more will come over.

#1095
I'm inclined to stay here too but that will depend upon how much activity there is. I prefer the look of this site - the 'revamp' of the SN PC site has refreshed it but I'm not sure if it's improved. I tend to use the mobile version on my phone and can't see any discernible on the SN site.

Anyway, as someone said on the other site - its all about leavers and remoaners these days!!!!

Got to say thsat i'm really impressed with this new site so far. The only real complaint I have with it so far is not being able to see the other messages while typing my own out.

I am liking this site much better

I guess the new admin on the SN site will maybe come to terms with the problems we had but I suspect interest from the new admin will fade and it will start to diminish.

It could just be a longer transition than we planned

I think as this site gets more popular as more teams move over then we'll see the opposition to move diminish.

Worcester are holding a poll and nearly 70% have voted to move so we'll be gaining more members shortly hopefully!

Back to the top!

Those of you who no longer check the SN site will have missed the recent exchange re. Wuss and vft22.

Essentially, both Falcons and Wuss now have 2 boards competing for traffic. We “vft22 people” have been asked nicely to stop bothering the Falcons SN board, and that moderator has expressed support to the Wuss SN board.

So we need to keep busy folks!

Shame the moderators didn’t consult with the users before moving to another provider.

The mods did on the Newcastle site too, and there was a lot of dissatisfaction expressed about the repeated privacy nonsense & excessive advertising impact on the SN site. Please also note that the mods did not close down, move, or in any way alter the SN site. It is still there if you wish to use it.

Popped over to have a look at the old site last night on my mobile........ first thing that appeared was the privacy notice..... says it all really!!!

Yes, not much seems to have changed. Like yours, the old Wuss SN board remains open, and the new (old) mod is posting like fury, but getting very little response.

We’re here now, roll on the rugby!

We need some rugby so we can move on from the sideshow.

Does anyone know why Mark didn't start in either Wales game. Is he broken or too precious to risk?

Sale's Mark Wilson :poke: needs some game time soon, or he is going to find it very difficult to shift Lewis Ludlam.

Think I prefer the original. The main moaning about privacy etc was from you. Nobody is saying you closed down or moved the original site. What has actually happened is that the forum has now split.

Falcons loaned, Mark Wilson, is not threatened ( yet) by Lewis Ludlum. He (when not injured ) offers much more.

I think "much more' might be stretching the point a bit, but in general, I agree, Wilson is first choice 6. Ludlam is, after all, primarily a 7.
My point was that if Ludlam plays as well as he has in many more games then it will be very difficult to drop him. Our current first choice 7's have both had long(ish) runs in the team when one got injured and the other became 'undroppable'.

We do need a bit of rugby to move on from the which board is better question, and to actually talk about the game and the falcons.
I am still a bit undecided on which to post on, but am more concerned with the content than the privacy stuff as that seems to happen on most sites these days, and this one (reading from afar without posting), does seem to have the more up to date content, with a few more varied topics, so may come back and post on this one, while keeping my eye on sport networks offering.

Think all the transfer moves are done, so not much to post on that thread, but am going to start getting more involved on here.....

The rugby and the content will be the driver not any disagreements over who said what etc...

good to see Ludlum taking his chance and will be great to see Mark Wilson get a game soon

RR, yes , you’ll need to keep up with Premiership affairs before your return to what will be the Baker’s Dozen in 20/21, and that’s easily done here.

It will be interesting to see if the RWC chat stays on each club’s boards, or will the dedicated RWC section be used so can get a wider view of opinion.

Person I hope that’s what happens.
