Fun? Delete?[edit]

Missionify, or move to fun, or delete - anything but this. There's some possible snark to be added about rugby and class, but at the moment this is neither on-mission enough for mainspace nor funny enough for funspace. Opinions? Yours trulyDear Sir 05:10, 29 January 2009 (EST)

It's a fair point. The only real way I can really see to missionify it is to stress the apocryphal nature of the story of the origins - it's one of those stories that a lot of people know but doesn't really get debunked very much. Not sure how 'on mission' that is though. Possibly a move to 'fun' if it's cleaned up and expanded a bit - I could certainly have a go at that. Worm (t | c) 05:28, 29 January 2009 (EST)
The Webb Ellis myth has been debunked, but it's *only* sport mythology, hardly worth taking time over. However I think adding a few jokes and moving to Fun would be best. Yours trulyDear Sir 06:03, 29 January 2009 (EST)
I don't think it's inconsitent and factless enough to be funspace material. :P ArmondikoVpathetic 09:22, 29 January 2009 (EST)
We'd have to funify it to justify that. I'll see what anti-rugby jokes I can steal think of. Yours trulyDear Sir 11:47, 30 January 2009 (EST)
It's often said that Rugby Union consists of gentlemen playing a thug's game, and that Rugby League is thugs playing a gentlemen's game. Or is it the other way around? I never can tell. Lar (talk) 22:34, 1 December 2010 (UTC)

Much as I'd love to take the easy way out an vaporise it, I think moving it into the fun namespace and cleaning it up will be the more constructive option.Several ingredients (talk) 04:38, 12 December 2010 (UTC)
