A Sheffield fan livinv in Bristol now thinks he knows everything going on at Fax. Its obvious the club do not have as much money in 2011 as 2010.The 50,000 fine from theOstick fiasco alongside the lost cup revenue, early rail cup exit, no pre season games due to weather etc. So yes Fax need to cut back in 2011. Next year is a joke as the rfl have seen to it that Widnes should walk away with everything.
I don't recall a £50K fine for Ostick, We lost revenue yes cause we got kicked out of the Cup, We would have then beat Batley to be in the last 8 with Catalans who at the time were playing poor and therfore could have had a chance of last 4 in challenge cup, Big money spinner for us,
I think you may be mistaking the £50k fine that was given to Castleford for homophobic abusive fans.
As stated, loss of a Sponsor who went bust, No Pre season , Northern Rail Cup exit, To be honest though other than the weather, everything else was the Boards fault, Ostick, we should have known better, Northern Rail cup, not knowing when a draw is enough and rushing final minute conversion to lose to Hunslet, Stanley Gene sacking, RFL agreed we were in the right but we did not stick to the proceedures, Sam Barlow, who knows.
However, its Martin Hall who is the Main man, even if we lose some top players, we will recruit more this next year with his appeal and to play for a consistently good team !!!.
