If its true, that's terrible news. My brother has arranged to travel from Spain and
I had also arranged for 10 others to travel up from Worcestershire to see this match.
Hopefully I can get my money back for the hire of the mini-bus.

There is nothing on sky sports about it yet but it would make sense, doubt sky will miss out on a big game like this, i'm hoping widnes at home will be moved to thurs at the end of the month!

it's killing clubs outside of SL.
We'd have been looking at 2.8-3k for this game if it was on a Sunday. Be lucky to get 2k paying supporters now.

As I understand it the club only get 5k from Sky and that is to cover support for the sky team. We could be losing out on around 15k here. Exposure of the league is one thing, but does this 'exposure' result in any extra finances?? As this is measureable I would be interested to see the outcome. I doubt whether it does. SL clubs get wads for screening their games I believe. All I want is a fair crack o' the whip for the championship clubs. I don't feel that as the arrangement stands at the mo, they do!

Not going to happen, Sheffield v Barrow is to be screened 24th June.
I'm sure I'll think of something funny to say soon.

I agree CC clubs should probably get more funding for being on TV. Do Sky contribute to the £100k prize money for the winners?

Not sure I entirely agree about the attendances. We got 2k for the Toulouse game, I doubt we would have got more on sunday. Same with Leigh, I think we will get a big crowd, some people like going when the cameras are there. Remember our game against Celtic in NL2, we got the biggest crowd of the season (admittedly with offers but they still have to come). The only downside is that Leigh fans have to travel on a week night so not as many will make it. Im sure they will still have a good turn out, its only an hour.

We have to weigh up whether we want a perceived 100 fans or so in the ground for one game or exposure on national TV. By winning on TV we may gain an extra 100 fans for the next game. I would rather take a long term view and be on TV where possible, it sells our product for us. To complain about perceived missing fans is short term thinking, and it is only perceived. We didnt play Keighley last season so cant compare but our toulouse attendance was up when shown on Sky. Thats the only fact we have for us this season.

Personally I would take TV coverage for the championship for nothing at least for a few years. It does more good than harm in my opinion.

Yet another game I cannot now attend.

As a result I will almost certainly not be buying a season ticket next year and am likely to be attending far fewer games as it's no longer worth planning things based on the fixture lists published at the start of the season.

The change of date is now on the Rovers web-site. I think the club should complain to the RFL since Leigh have an unfair advantage.They have an extra day to prepare (Leigh play Barrow on the previous Saturday and we play Sunday). biggrin.gif

Would we have got a bigger crowd on a Sunday?
A few weeks ago i would say yes, but now im not so sure. I know the club were very dissapointed with the Dewsbury gate, they were hoping for a good turnout as it was the 1st Sunday game for a good few weeks. We ended up with just under 1700 yet we play toulouse and Keighley on a Thursday and get 2200. Many people work shifts which mean working on a weekend and get days off in the week, also people go away at weekends.

Got to agree with Tex on this one, I think the positives of sky coverage outweigh the negatives.

- Another 2 that would have been at the game on the Sunday, all this Thursday coverage is fine but itís not worth it if the supporters of the clubs suffer, why the hell cant they show the games on a Sunday.

Exactly why cant televised matches be screened on a Sunday. Championship players have jobs and the RL should take this into account when negotiations take place with sky. Sky have four main channels and often on a Sunday all four are showing ######.

I am another one that will now not be attending the game nor will I be able to get a refund for a £60 train ticket that I will now not be able to use. Thanks again folks at the RFL you've done me out of money once more by switching fixtures. Too angry for words... angry.gif angry.gif angry.gif
