I don't see many SL fans stating they would boycott certain elements of RL,a symptom that seems to be prevalent in Featherstone,a so called hot bed of Rugby League.In Featherstone the double standard is king.

a so called hotbed? your scouts certainly don't need a satnav to find us, thats for sure

He played very few first team games gaz. We got an absolute mint for him by today's standards.
Given the climate we couldn't have done better. 3 clubs bidding for him made mark a happy bloke.

Maybe robin but I would rather of kept him. But if tomkins ever leaves Wigan they will get a hefty pay day I'm sure and Zak isn't that far behind tomkins.

Given the choice, the wad or zac? I'd take the wad leeds were wafting every time, particularly after wire upped their bid!! That was massive to fev and secure the cc winning season with the briggsy money.

On that note robin with our youngsters at the minute I'm sure some will be following Zak in the not too distant future as we have some great young talent.

They don't have to state it. Conspicuous by their absence at the Championship Grand Finals day, not to mention Challenge Cup and play off ties. Should Rovers get to SL Robin stated that he would watch his team and also continue to support the Championship. Could do with more fans like that I'd say.

You are far too sensitive and defensive.

I asked the question to give you an opportunity to explain all the good things this means for your club, your team and the game as a whole.

I reckoned that if you could not explain why, then no one could. At one point, you almost got it, but have suffered a relapse.

Rugby league has suffered far too long from an inability to articulate what is good about it. For Rovers to succeed at the highest level it has to do more than attract disaffected fans from other clubs..there is no net benefit to the game in doing this. It must attract new fans, new sponsors and new investors. Investors not donors. Investors want something back..a return. If committed fans such as you can't explain why someone should invest, then why expect us to understand. " because we were shafted" or " because Super-dooper is immoral" are not sufficient arguments .

I trust that this new investment does happen and that it delivers what everyone has worked for.

John my problem is the fact that you don't ask the same questions on other threads but have done on positive news about my club.

All the SL fans I know are primarily fans of the game as a whole. Most of the Championships fans I know are primarily fans of the game as a whole. There are a few, a very few Championship fans who have declared themselves on this forum as fans only of their club and who spurn SL despite living off the benefits that SL has brought to the game.

Strange because the majority of championship fans I speak to have very little time for SL. Perhaps you don't attend enough championship games to see the big picture.

As I've stated,I'd love to see Fev back in SL but stating you boycott SL but would still watch your club in SL is double standards ,is it not?

Not

Strange because all the Championship fans I know, and I know quite a few, enjoy SL watch it on TV regularly and even go to the odd big game.

Isn't that most strange.
