St Helens v Wigan is the original derby of any sport as Lord Derby gave his name to it after watching it and as such the term “derby” was coined

Why are you making things up?

There are two theories for where the term “derby” comes from, some people argue both are true and both contribute to it:

1. The phrase originates from the town of Ashbourne, Derbyshire, England. There, since as early as the 12th century, two teams from opposite ends of the town play a rough and tumble football/rugby type of game called the Royal Shrovetide Football Match. The match is between the 'uppers' and the 'downers' - townspeople from opposite sides of the river that runs through the town.

2. The 12th Earl (not Lord) of Derby who founded The Derby horse race in 1780 (long before rugby league started) and the term “derby” started to get associated with big sporting events after that.

We have this Derby squabble every year it’s boring the only people who care about the derby are the fans of the teams involved I love the Hull derby because it involves my team and couldn’t care less about Saints v Wigan and vice versa

making things up simple because it's a tolerated troll, who Jean, LeBron and all the the other logins switch between.

Seriously, I’ve always felt Baz has a good television manner, he’s pretty cool and witty, and doesn’t witter on to much. Carney also has some good qualities, is quite eloquent and doesn’t seem to show any bias.

So if we are selecting from the existing team, Baz & Carney, with a different ex player ref guest every week.
:shock: your kidding me, its getting kind of tiresome listening to him drone on, getting things wrong in the chat forgetting players names, (carney corrected him the other day), I don't need to listen to how hard someones playing he needs to hold eddies hand while exiting the building and take terry with him too
“The bond between the players is something I’ve never had with any other club. Everyone comes into one and we’re all one group. Whenever we get a new signing, everyone just embraces the culture. It’s what I love about this club and I just can’t wait for the journey ahead.”

Lol it’s all opinions Snowie lad, I agree about Tez, but Baz is number one for me, he’s direct & honest without it appears any bias, yes he is prone to errors, just like our game.

As a foreigner I do not want to listen to uneducated men with strong northern accents. That precludes appointing Barrie McDermott and Terence O'Connor, as well as Phillip Clark.

I pray for an educated man who speaks good English, like William Arthur or David Woods.
