Whoa there. You can't go blaming the chairman! And of course reporters and journalists trawl the forums, twitter etc. They would not be doing their jobs if they did not. Indeed, some organs pay people to do just hat.


I'm not blaming him. I just find the whole thread ironic and was trying to be so. Your last sentence demonstrates the irony quite well in that some people of significant influence pay the piper to do exactly what's reported by "lazy journalists".

The same numbers as priest and vicars. What's your point?

the fact that our chairman told me directly that he is annoyed at the inaccurate reporting in the national press, he assured me that there is no danger whatsoever that he is going to pull out of the club, as he has spent a large amount on the club, ground etc (including the full funding for the i-pitch) and is not in the habit of giving money away for nothing in return. we were a little top heavy behind the scenes and like any company we have had to streamline the backroom in order to concentrate on the product on the pitch, which is why some staff have been made redundant as they were considered superfluous to the needs of the club, rest assured that widnes vikings are in super league for the long haul with steve o'connor at the helm.......................


I think Widnes are understaffed to be honest

I was referring to the jibe at Mr Parker and the Sun, not my own prejudices.

To be honest RL could do with some good old investigative journalists at times the RFL know full well they can pretty much get away with murder nowadays as no-one is going to question them.

HULL FC AFFAIR
WEMBLEY CROWD FIGURES
SPONSORSHIPS
ETC

If any of the above had been rugby union/soccer or cricket well god knows what would have been dug up

Why don't you do it? Seeing as you're always banging on about it.

Repeating a libel,is a libelous offence - fact.


Get a grip, the hypocrisy of one or two people on this thread is truly astounding, as a Broncos fan I've had to put up with a number of posters on this and other forums peddling rumours about the Broncos impending demise and financial strife, some people just don't like it when it's about the poster child for all flatcappers, Widnes Vikings.

And for whatever reason,Daddy has decided to spread totally unfounded rumours - thats called libel.Sorry Judge,I was just repeating something I know nothing about.No problem Sir,Guilty.


Nothing Daddy has written would make him guilty of libel.
