btw who are the gay players in new zealand?...really..i heard 2 new zealand players are gay...Kelleher i think..
Kelleher isn't gay. He's hard as nails straight mofo. He f***s a pornstar. Everybody knows that the gay players are Tony Woodcock and my main man Carl Hayman.... But if you ask them they'll deny it.

but no, wales gotta go all personal and ****.

regarding most american sports, maybe it's necessary to have names-and-numbers because we have more substitutes readily used and on the bench than on the field - not defending it, just saying that there is a kind of reason for it.[/b]

How can you say that when the Yanks take everything personal! your the only Country i know that got to go 1 better than everybody else,

the only logic i can sense behind the decision to sew these unnecessary and unsightly letters above the number was intimated to me by my good friend who said: they've got their names on their kits so you can tell them apart cause they're all f***ing ugly.[/b]

Wales are copying the yanks cos they are **** hot in everything {joke} laugh :D
American footie are full of ugly gays too thats why they wear helmets, to cover their ugly mo foes up :bravo:

I only put my post here cos i find it funny and a laughable read almost wet myself! good thread captainamerica the name says it all :toss:

thank you for quoting a side note (the part about american sports) and a joke (the speculation on welsh looks).

as for the point -- test rugby and personalized kits -- i'm still awaiting actual thoughts, if any.

So you must be talking about all the rugby teams that have names on the back of their RUGBY Jerseys not just Wales? 90% of Rugby Union, at the end of the day who gives a CRAP what a team has on their jerseys. :zzz:

On this 'point', i would like to say that names have been on the back of shirts for a bit now, GP clubs have had it and it was only a natural progression.

Reebok am i right make the kits, so they unlike nike are a different brand and have different.

Although they chose the wrong team to give names to,

they all are called jones and williams

Well, I don't know about the kiwis, but I think Henners is a bit of both and I have a sneaking suspicion about Norton-Knight.

Gay guy's comment about kelleher 'whipping it out' had me laughing for ages and every time the commentry says it.

test rugby and personalized kits.

of which wales are the only national side with names on the back.

why?

rugby is one of the few sports where a number directly relates to a position.

arguments can definitely be made for clubs, though clubs have always done things fairly differently (leicester and bristol used to have letters for numbers, etc)

i'm just wondering if anyone else finds it jarring that a national rugby side has personalized kits.

evidentally, i'm the only one.

oh well.

incidentally:
"what a yank does best" -- and it's my little guy eating AND drinking.

just like an american!

did you come up with that all by yourself?

As i said before i dont think people give 2 flying pigs what teams have on their rugby jerseys, so why does it bother you so much? as BM said Reebok make the jerseys so ask reebok why they put the Welsh player names on the back! Or for that matter why do Clubs and international teams have their badge/logo on their left chest, i supose there is no need of it, cos they have different colour jerseys to identify one another and as you put it (rugby is one of the few sports where a number directly relates to a position) and you are right, so my point is its symbolic in all aspects!!!!

And on a note most of the players as BM said are Jones, Williams or Thomas LOL

p.s and no i didnt come up with that name all by myself, i just copied you as you put your muncher there as a gesture! [sarcasm] (drink, eat, talk BS) :cheers:

it bothers me because i think it's completely arrogant and unnecessary.
and, for better or for worse, i'm kind of a traditionalist.

this is 'talking balls' and is the place to voice opinions, even if the subject matter is completely trivial.

that you could give a flying f*** about the topic -- great. but i want to know why, and exactly what sense of history you may hold or are coming from.

you often hear about players putting on their national jersey and it's one of the, if not the, proudest moment in their career because of all the elite players they are following. i think the surnames immediately take away (because it's visual) a sense of history associated with each number.

this might only be a minor sense of loss, but still.

i mean, why have jones stamped above 10 now when you had the likes of morgan, john, and bennett who all played better?

no other national team has it except wales.

this was not up to reebok. reebok may have suggested it, but the wrfu ultimately has the final say on how their side look.

thanks for bringing up badges - that actually helps my point of view.

as for the 'munch' - that is what that icon is called over here, and is often used to indicate waiting. though he's english, i forgot about mick 'the munch' skinner and how it could be perceived over there. lost in translation, no harm done.

I think it’s great the more this debate goes on, I think its good to have their names on the back of the jerseys actually, they have it on international football & club football (soccer for the yanks) and is more used more and more in club rugby, I mean it helps some people to identify players by name, and for the people who are just learning the game as they will not know who the players are?
They can then relate to that player and not just by number as there are more players coming through the squad, not only that there are players that can play multi positions on the pitch.
So for someone watching an International Rugby test match "not having a clue that is?" Sees players with names on their back jerseys, it would make it easier to identify them! See where I am coming from? and mybe the WRU is thinking the same????

If I started watching American football then I wouldn’t have a clue Who the players are, I personally think the game is rubbish, bringing a player on just for 1 task is stupid if you ask me, but that’s just me? Anyway moving on, maybe the WRU are moving on to new things, and not staying behind as rugby is getting more 'n' more global, trying new things out, going forward not backwards? Like International & club football has.

Yes this is “talking balls†and we all have opinions and views and freedom of speech (your 1st amendment) "see still having a joke" and on a note I do respect your opinions and views, we all have them, some more than other dare I say! Also I think the Welsh red & 125th Anniversary jerseys are cool as I have both of them.

Until we meet again my young Padawan!

again - football isn't number specific for positions.

i definitely see where you are coming from and it doesn't hold an ounce of water in the grand scheme of things. what you are intimating is the equivalent to dumbing things down. what has happened in over a hundred years to make this necessary?

as for players that can play various positions. well, let's say henson starts the match at inside but stephen jones gets hurt so he moves to standoff. you and everyone else will see 12 taking the ball out of position.

call me out now - am i expecting too much from the fans to maybe know some, if not all, of their own starting XV? hell, even if i didn't know, if i'm at the match i can check the program. if at home, listen for commentary (or, check the internet).

the amount of substitutes going on or coming off on any given play completely makes names useful. unless you want to memorize a roster of over 40+ players. kinda different from a starting XV and 7 specific subs.

trying new things does not always mean going forward.

i also like the red welsh jersey, and think it is an integral part in the history of this great sport. why ruin it with names (names imply ownership) of players who aren't legends yet?

Something you missed out there that kind of bugged me a little...


More often than not you can't actually read the names on the back anyway....


Carry on.
