I always said I wouldn't watch another team, but if I had too it wouldn't be one of the super league teams, it would probably have to be Batley

If they ceased to exist, presumably through insolvency, I would watch the new team that would be started up in Featherstone, or its surrounding area, by some of the excellent supporters that propped up the present club through the lean years. If the unthinkable was to happen, Rovers may lose their ground, but not their supporters. They would probably start up again at Fev Lions, or Pontefract Collieries, or even by renting Post Office Road if it didn't get demolished!

If Featherstone Rovers ceased to exist that would be it for me, I wouldn't continue to follow rugby league.

Probably give the game a rest for a while and use my Sunday afternoons for other things. Might take in the odd game a bit more local though, Keighley maybe.

If Fev ceased to exist there would still be RL in the area, mainly at Junior level. I would (if still around) put myself about to encourage and organise junior teams. It would be like a rebirth or resurrection, after all that is how we started. I am sure there would be enough dedicated bodies around to ensure RL survives in one form or another in FEV.

We've been through alot worse times than this so why bring this up when we are at the top of our game where we haven't been for a very long time. If you had brought this up when Hobbs and gaz h price were here I might comment 😃

i've already explained. i just wondered how many of us would carry on watching rugby league if there was no fev. no one is suggesting we are going bust, but a good few supporters (including me) have said they would have no interest in rugby league if we didn't have fev. just trying to gauge peoples feelings on the game in general. chill.
