A question for the legal beagles on the forum..  Do the court cases that Trump plans to launch get funded by taxpayers or Republicans or "whoever loses". Not sure how system works, but assume that some sort of costs are involved and hoping that billionaires don't qualify for legal aid.

I'm pretty sure the Trump team have been crowd funding and begging donors to contribute to legal costs.

He has to raise the funds himself.

Judging by the fiasco of his Lawyer's press conference outside a landscaping business and next door to a porn shop (yes, that kind) I can see this legal challenge being nothing more than an absolute trainwreck.

Isn’t it funny that all that is really happening is that Trump is getting the full 2020 experience 

contract COVID 19  

Lose job

 Evicted from home

 He really can relate to the common people

Unfortunately the average man in the street wasn't lucky enough to inherit daddy's millions.

Worst of all, I'm pretty sure he won't qualify for any government assistance. He'll be one of those who "fall through the cracks". Poor guy...

I don't know, he'll have a roof over his head and warm meals every day. I hear prison will even provide him with a job!

I did hear he has a bit of unpaid tax that the IRS want to talk to him about. 😁

Anyone watching State of Origin this morning? NSW need to win to level the series and take it to the final game. 

For a lot of Aussies this is the pinnacle of Rugby League, often put above the World Cup.

I didn't see it today but I'd probably argue they are the biggest games in rugby league whilst England and the Super League isn't competing at that level, despite how well the Brits have done over there.

I think Rugby League needs England to get a series win over Australia or a world Cup to improve the profile.

Yeah the problem with the Super League is that it isn't on the same scale as the NRL in terms of viewership or finances. The Super League is really insular too, as highlighted in the miss opportunity in reinstating Toronto to the Super League. If they opened up the game a bit more they'd bring in new sponsors and fans.

But they are really insular towards any teams out side the "heartlands" too. The Midlands used to have a really strong amateur league, made up of very good teams from the likes of Telford, Coventry, Birmingham, Leamington and us (Northampton).  But due to lack of any decent leadership or desire from the RFL to grow the game outside the heartlands, the Midlands league is finished and my team and Coventry are gone too. There was talk at one stage of us and Coventry moving into the Semi-Pro league, but neither team could make it viable financially off our own backs, which was a real shame!

Decent pathway down here we had a clutch of lads I played with go on a play for a couple of pro teams. One lad was captain of the London Broncos when they were in the Championship, and we had a few lads play at Oxford RL (before they went bust), Hemel Stags (before they moved 100 miles north) and Newcastle Thunder too.

    • Is it hard to find good managers that want to play good football?  It would seem to be a weird thing, for me anyway, if all of the on field progress made over the last 30/40 years hasn't lead to a different way of thinking in terms of coaching in this country.  But go foreign or whatever, that makes no difference to me.  It's just about what the manager believes in, and what we as a club are striving for.
    • 😭😭😭 Well aren't you a little ray of sunshine 🙂
    • Oh I agree with that.  But the manager is an integral part of that and we currently have the wrong one for the vision I'd like us to have, that's all.
    • The thing is though, once it actually comes to ‘farting around the championship’, most fans won’t accept it and will once again want the manager out. It’s all well and good wanting to play nice football etc. But at the end of the day, results is what matters and what pleases fans. For what it’s worth I wouldn’t mind going for a long term vision, but as long as we are competing for the play offs.
