Would you rather the clubs pay their staff and bills with brass buttons instead?


i would rather see a common sense approach to finance

too many clubs spend spend spend halifax,leigh,salford,wakefield,castleford,bradford in recent times and a
few more in trouble,safe guards are said to be in place by the RFL to say this wont happen...but time again it is.
maybe team are upping their prices to cover the secret payments to players that goes on...and before you jump in...
you know it happens at most clubs...
i want rugby league to be here in a 100 years time strong & entertaining,not the live now and jigger tomorrow that modern life is all about.

Thats a pretty libellous comment you have just posted. I assume you have some solid evidence for that claim? If I were you I would either put up or shut up.

£17 is more than reasonable for a rugby match at a top club in 2013.

If you want to watch your team you will pay to do that no matter what, il be at ALL away grounds next season paying whatever the entrance fee is because I love my club (Hunslet RLFC) and I want to support them where ever they play.

Ticket at Featherstone: £17.
Ticket at Leeds United: £36.

I think we're still some way off football prices just yet.

Extreme example there Gav.

Seated ticket at Leigh Centurions: £18
Seated ticket at Wigan Athletic: £20.

That's the worry (thankfully there are no Latics fans in Leigh, but the point still stands).

Aye, but how many West Yorkshire folk are going to go to Wigan to watch a football match?

£17 is more than reasonable in my humble opinion.

It would be very dangerous to follow the Bradford route and give our product away, we should be building a "premium" brand. We will gain nothing by racing to the bottom and being regarded as "cheap".

Essentially, you get what you pay for. Pay peanuts, get monkeys. Pay a premium, get a quality product.

Your 100% right.

Ya pays ya money, ya takes ya choice.
If the extra £2 to get in at Fev (as opposed to say Dews) is having too much impact on personal finances, family budgets or just simple ar_seyness of any individuals with the hump on, jealousy of rovers OR just wishing to abstain... c'est la vie, we'll have to do without their entrance fee.

If any Rovers fans choose not to visit Hunslet because they perceive they are being discriminated against, c'est la vie. Hunslet will have to do without their cash! - I have to say, I can't for the like of me understand why one would make that stance, but each to their own!!
I will be at the SLS talking cobblers with the Brethren and shouting the lads on regardless of Hunslet's charging policy.

I really don't get this thread....

If anyone doesn't want to go anywhere for whatever reason.....DON'T!!!!
