My understanding is the only way Rovers are staying afloat is through this guys generosity. If he goes, so will Rovers IMO.

I thought the main man who propped up HKR was Rob Crossland?

Tweeted by HDM reporter that Hudgell and Crossland have admitted to friends this will be there last at Rovers.Very worrying times across the river.

Quite why the only pleasure some 'supporters' of the game get,is from the difficulties of other Clubs,is quite beyond me.

There certainly appears to be have been a sea change this year in a number of areas. The wealthy benefactor model is never going to be sustainable. Very worrying times indeed.

After the battering that was last weeks game this is not going to enthuse the players.

 

I hope it doesn't all go pear shaped at HKR.

Isn't that the new RL culture created by the RFL? Advancement at someone else demise, hence the demise is sought after and celebrated

 

I personally liked the big family helping one another out eg Bradford 64(?), maybe we can get back to that culture with a change at the top

Erm what about Bradford 2012? Plenty of fans and other people gave and raised money.

I'm sure there were many fans in RL at the time who didn't want to help them either.

You can talk about this culture all you like but what creates that culture in Football when clubs go against the wall? Look at the glee when Rangers were relegated.

Exactly. Fans building grounds eg Hilton Park, fans watching 'big' games at opposing clubs as neutrals eg Wigan v Manly.
