When Dewsbury played against Swinton earlier in the season, Swinton had nine Warrington players in the side, how has this even been allowed to happen? if I was in the squad at the start of the season and getting over looked week in week out so that my club could play someone from another team I would be well ###### off, what is the point in giving it everything you have at training to be told not this week, it has been mentioned on numerous occasions how does this achieve a settled side when basically all you are are just been used to either keep non picked players match fit or players that have been out for a while someone to have a run out with until they are in good enough physical shape to get back into their 1st team, DR should only be allowed for up and coming youngsters or not at all.

 

No we didn't. Although I understand your point. But as per previous comments, we know. There's not much going to happen by repeating it on here.

Instead of increasing your crowd..you should all stay at home in protest...Someone is ripping the heart out of one of the proudest clubs in the game


Hear, hear. And his name is Paul Kidd!

Wondered how long it would take for you to get your axe and grinder out again.  What are we to do? We are bottom of the league, our most experienced half back is out injured, we have three new players one of which is a relatively young half back needing game time and an experienced hand to guide him.We need a win at all costs.  We are offered the services of one of the best half backs this country has produced in some time, we are supposed to refuse this offer muddle along as we are just to please all the d/r haters (I don't particularly agree with it before anyone starts) we are fighting to survive in this league sometimes you have to do ugly things to survive. How many times do we have to go over the same ######, its not going to change this season get over it. :angry:

I am only saying what I was told at the game by a Swinton player that was sat next to me, he had been left out or dropped for that very reason of letting a Warrington player play. I will not mention his name obviously as this would be the wrong thing to do.

Its incredible that DR has ripped the soul out of rugby league. however, scrapping promotion and relegtion didn't. you boys need to give your head a wobble.

franchise system was put in place to keep the rich rich and the poor poor. this is just a continuation of this. very few of you criedfoul when the brought it in. I wrote to numerous mps and the rfl. i signed petitions. rallied you lot on here.

none of you did a thing about it. well you are all reaping what you've sewn!

Rant over.
Dont worry, it will soon be Christmas!

Fair play, although we had similar problems with the D/R system last season when we could only have 4 loaned players. Either way, it's not good for rugby.

And Barnie's right about P/R.

. It's not so much DR it's how it's being used that is the problem! We all know that it was brought in to give game time for those players who would have played at under 23 level and NOT as a means for established Super League players to regain match fitness!

Kozo you talk about pride. do me a favor. if you had any pride at all you would agree with me. the soul of rugby league went 4 or so years ago. this is just a progression of that.

mind you, feel free to ignore the truth if it doesnt fit in with your warped sense of whats right and wrong.

Yes the soul of RL was sold to Mr Murdoch in the SL with P/R being the heart ripped out. This however is the D/R system being grossly abused and damaging the entity that is Swinton RLFC. Do me a favour and give up on the brow beating, I am not denying anyone their opinion, freedom of speech applies to these forums.

Nobody on here has ever said that they agree with the system or that you shouldnt have an opinion but whats the point in keeping on the same message? This isnt the place to get it changed, just a vehicle for idiots to come on with their ####### comments to wind you up! Dont bite for f sake!

Ditto  the club has become a laughing stock now, its beyond a joke. Congratulations to the RFL for coming up with the DR rules on the back of a fag packet.

What are "we" to do? How about those in charge ditch the lazy opportunistic exploitation of loopholes in the RFL's rules surrounding Partnering, stop prostituting the club's identity and heritage to Warrington Wolves, and for once knuckle down to some proper hard work to actually develop Swinton Lions in its own right?

 

Starting with getting Agecroft progressed, in line with the promises we've been fed since 2006.  Now the 2 community coaches are at a loose end, how about a proper strategy to see them used, supported and financed amidst the community whose name the club bears. Get a democratically elected representative of the Trust back on the board as a means to engaging the support base positively and valuing their input.

 

Far easier, of course, to be a true opportunist and keep sucking up the old man's money while achieving nothing in your own right.

They are making a start, but even on that single aspect there is a long way to go.  It will be interesting to see what happens when the point arrives that John and Paul Kidd have their commitment to community work in the Swinton area properly tested - I don't believe that's the case as yet.
