A Rugby League Legend. Not a Hull FC legend.

I disagree. He is a Hull FC legend regardless of how he left. Over 100 tries and around 200 goals. If Bunting had started him at Wembley in 1985 or brought him on earlier we'd have won the Cup I reckon.

There are two sides to every story. I think he and Crooks were both put out at how much the club were paying Gary Pearce.

If you can’t take the word of supporters who were around at the time and experienced Schofield’s vitriol, then go ahead with your conspiracy theories :WHISPER:
As Wilf has already alluded to, Lee Crooks had to be forcibly removed from The Boulevard, kicking and screaming but don’t let the truth get in the way of a good story.
Oh and by the way, it was Lee who got hold of Casey when he had Pearce up against the changing room walls at half time, and probably led to Lee’s demise!!!!

I was around at the time, thanks, I just don't live in the past like some others.

Hilarious that you accuse people of conspiracy theories then post your own :lol:

I remember Crooksy was very upset to leave Hull, he literally lived for the club and never settled or produced his best at Leeds.
I'd heard similar about him and Casey but as always, it was never officially announced that it had happened and I thought it was probably just a story that had been added to over time, although I hated Casey as coach, despite him being a previous player for us, my memories of him were as a Rovers hardman, who was in reality, a cheap shot merchant and never squared up to the real hardmen of the game at that time, Fred Ah Kuoi actually gave him a good one when Casey was sent off and pushed the touch judge, ruining his chance of captaining GB down under if memory serves me well.
Stone me, what a life!

No conspiracy theory, horses mouth. The incident led to Casey’s sacking, he went on to run a b&b in Cumbria after vacating The Buccaneer in Brough.

Schofield was a prolific try scorer.

Yes he did come on late in that 1985 Cup Final and missed 2 or 3 conversions from our late flurry of tries. Not easy kicks, but Marc Sneyd would have kicked them all in his sleep (Crooks/Schofield missed five kicks between them that day!) Therefore, Schofield could have still changed the game in our favour.
