Because he disagrees with you?

Fittler is spot on, the Golden Boot Award has been devalued by the pointless rule change. It's ridiculous to award it based only on internationals as there are so few of them.

Makinson is a fine winger but to join a list of winners like Lewis, Kenny, Sterling, Hanley, Johns, Lockyer and Thurston is embarrassing and I would have said the same had Jake Connor had won it.

He isn’t spot on. That’s the issue. Just like the salty bitter Wakefield fan above, he has no clue about what the golden boot actually means this year! Fittler, like batsman still thinks it’s rugby league equivalent of the ballon d’or which it clearly isn’t.
The Leigh and Wakefield fans mentality......

Say something negative about any other team than theirs - Its an opinion

Say something negative about Leigh and Wakefield - TROLL

To only have international footy as a criteria is ridiculous. We are a sport that plays very little international games.

Yep. A player could have one good game and win the golden boot, how ridiculous does that seem?

nah....not bitter at all :roll:
JESUS WEPT :WALL: HOW MANY TIMES?????
£20 a ticket and £15 on beer and merchandise.....so an away fan is worth £35. At best, 1,000 is the average away support split across 11 rounds and I am being really generous here, so Toronto, replacing say Wakefield will cost a SL club £35,000.
The minimum turnover of a SL club is £4,000,000 so Toronto instead of Widnes is worth less than 1% of a SL clubs turnover.

There are many valid reasons for and against expansion into America, but "AWAY FANS" isn't one of them. :BEAT:

Out of curiosity how on earth does this show me to be bitter? :lol: so I am guessing you put him on the same pedestal as the likes of Wally Lewis?

In all fairness I actually wasn't aware they now base the award solely on international performances... what's the logic in That? As my post states above a player could have 1 good game and win the golden boot, just doesn't make any sense.

If the lack of internationals leads to an "embarrassing" choice, then have more internationals.

Makinson played well at the weekend, and was solid in the other game he played. Two games in a year is a pathetic amount, but there have only been four internationals for England in 2018, with one to go.
“You are playing a game of football this afternoon but more than that you are playing for England, and more even than that, you are playing for right versus wrong. You will win because you have to win. Don’t forget that message from home. England expects every one of you to do his duty.”

Players who played internationals in 2018 and who are better players than Thomas Makinson:

James Tedesco
Dallin Watene-Zelesniak
Shaun Johnson

It’s not about who’s a better player, it’s about who has put in the most stand-out performances and Makinson has been outstanding in Sunmer and Autumn internationals against the Kiwis.
