Think of a number and double it. Double it again. You're still way off.

"San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Marquise Goodwin scores an 83-yard touchdown just hours after he and his wife lost their unborn son, helping his side to their first win of the 2017 NFL season."
Seems everybody thinks he's brill. But your prematurely born son dies and you go to play murderball. No. Never, ever. :banghead: :banghead: :banghead:

For those of you with too much time on your hands or who work at Stormont, same thing really. Looks like we rebuilt Ravenspan too soon. Here's where sports stadiums (or is it stadia?) are heading.

That would cost the entire NI block grant and we would still feck it up and run over budget

Casement will be another waste of money with a the desire to simply have the biggest stadia in Belfast... Kingspan is the envy of Europe I am told it was the jolt that Racing needed to built that dump they now have.. for the record I never considered Spanner’s anymore than a decent stadia but one that lacks flexibility possibly in part due to the local residents needs.. it ticks boxes but not enough.

I don't think anyone would doubt that the atmosphere at Kingspan isn't what it was at Ravenhill, ten years ago. Is this the result of a new stadium, a weaker team or a different profile of fans? Maybe a combination of all three or something else entirely. One thing's for sure, no stadium improvements will significantly affect our on-field performances.

It's an entertainment business. Supporters are not being entertained or enthused by what they see on the pitch so the atmosphere is pants and attendances falling.

From the BBC

Harlequins have announced a strategic partnership with three-times Rugby World Cup winners New Zealand.
The Premiership club will cooperate with the All Blacks in several projects, including an exchange of playing and coaching resources.
"The All Blacks are the benchmark of excellence for all teams," Quins chief executive David Ellis said.
"To be able to align with them both on and off the pitch will be of significant benefit to the club."

Harlequins could benefit by welcoming players taking a sabbatical from playing in New Zealand, with members of their squad spending time in New Zealand.
The two sides share a kit manufacturer and may enter into other commercial partnerships.
"This unique relationship will open some useful connections in that part of the world," New Zealand Rugby chief executive Steve Tew said.
"London is of key strategic importance to New Zealand Rugby, and this cooperation agreement is a very natural fit.
"This will create significant opportunities for both sides, with players, coaches and staff able to learn from different environments with different people, challenges and cultures."

Analysis
Chris Jones, BBC Radio 5 live rugby reporter
Despite their standing in the rugby world, New Zealand Rugby has long been concerned about the pull of the northern hemisphere.
While they have been happy on the whole for their coaches to experience new rugby cultures, they have lost a number of All Blacks in recent years to clubs in England and France.
This unprecedented initiative with Harlequins may give the NZRU greater control over which players and coaches head north - and when - as well as a commercial footing in London.
Quins should surely also benefit given the quality, depth and intellect in New Zealand rugby.

So who are UR going to pair up with?

Namibia anybody?
