So which forum members aint off tmora other than coolie? (name and shame  ;) )

 

Quite afew fans i know aint off for various reasons, work, being skint ect.. i reckon it should of been a tenner entry for adults/ 5 for concessions for both fax and rams fans who have season tickets and bring them to show the turn style operator on entry, add abit of incentive for people to come.. 

 

Just an idea but then again promoting games and adding incentives to turn up to matches like bring a mate for free seem to have long gone this season despite their success... 

 

if only we had a club staff member who knew how and was paid to market a club  :rolleyes:

 

2 OR 3 fulltime staff and not one is employed to try get bums on seats

chris seeing ive been named and shamed lol as you put it

this is why i aint going

holly jollys on saturday for the week,game was supposed to be sunday so would miss it anyway so was resigned to not going to the match

after last sundays thriller that i struggled to keep both eyes open,the thought of spending £26 taking me and my other half to watch
our sinterlating rugby...didnt not appeal..the £26 will keep my kids entertained all day at ingoldmells on the big rides.

hmmmmmmm lets me see (stroking the chin's)which i will get most pleasure from ;)

i rest my case for the defence your honor ;)

I cant go because of a previous commitment, but i do agree that this game represented a good chance to try a few options (£10 in, bring a mate for free etc)

we seem to have discussed this ad infinitum however and to be honest I have given up.  Maybe those involved have worked out that we get the same gate whatever and all these schemes do is loose us money???!

Speaking fluent batley I am surprised Coolie that ypu want Dewsbury's motto to be "we are and always will be second to our brother across the valley". But as they say the truth will set you free ;)

I believe that, as it's a cup game, the gate is split so both clubs would need to agree to any reduction. As 'Fax wouldn't gain any benefit from any other ground income I can't see them agreeing, can you.

 

To those questioning others' commitment, we don't need your approval to miss the game if we wish. I shall be there, but out of choice not emotional blackmail.

I can't normally attend evening matches due to family commitments, but as luck would have it this Thursday is an exception - and the bugg.er of it is that I can't use my season ticket. However like you BSJ - should I choose to exercise my right to stay at home I will.

Yes Fax would have to agree and if the admission was halved the attendance would have to double to break even, which is unlikely.

Normally junior coaching commitments would stop me attending but as luck would have it, seasons just finished so will be attending.

Whoooooo.....I apologise profusely for not being able to make the match Equaliser.  I will flagellate myself until raw and contemplate the error of my ways.  How I didn't foresee that we would be playing Halifax on Thursday 16th May several months ago I will never know.

I will write a thousand times "co-sponsoring a player, buying three season tickets, having two drema numbers and contributing to squad builder is not enough - I must always clear my diary in order to be a true fan"

Glad that our Rams fans in New Zealand can pick up the game,don't expect too much though,think we might lose this one by around 16 points,att will be 999.

I think what equalizer is trying to say is us fans have a job to do too, to support the team and keep the club going aswel as just the players just turning up and peforming. Its ok fans having a go at players and coaches when they dont turn up and peform, yet when we have a sparse crowd tonight because we use the can watch it on tele excuse you could argue the fans are letting the club down.. (dont want to be a batley now do we)

 

I understand people work and have other things on and can do what they want with their life and money. What i will say though is marks appealed for fans to turn up tonight, at the after match presentation against keighley sunday to make us look a good vibrant club on tv to the national audience... A decent crowd and atmosphere on tv can help attract new fans to games in future aswel as new sponsors... a poor crowd and empty stadium isnt going to attract new sponsors and new supporters to the club. If for example a kid from dewsbury at 13 watchers the game on tv, likes the fact his hometown club are on tv as hes never been to a match, sees a good vibrant atmosphere and enjoys the match and what he sees then the kid may one day get his family to take him to a match or go up with his mates... A few of the younger rams who stand with the barmy army are now supporters having originally only watched us afew year ago for the first time on sky.. they saw the games on sky and now go to every home match ever since!!

 

I seem to remember anotther new fan whos only recently moved to dewsbury yet goes to watch its local rugby team being given abuse the other day on this forum for what he said been taken the wrong way... Hes a new fan to the club, dont put these new fans off please as we need as many supporters as possible to keep the club going. If that fan reads this, come stand with the barmy army mate, wel make you welcome!! :-)

 

Finally, one thing to remember is were all dewsbury fans and all want success for this great club no matter our view or opinion we all want us to win. See you all tonight! come on the rams!!!

Chris think over the last 40 years

the club and the team have let down the fans

more than the fans have ever let the team and the club down.

tell me one time the fans didnt turn up and support to there full.

Think over the recent years weve have a few performances where the team didnt turn up and perform to their full.

its easy following a big club but it takes a more hardy person to follow his hometown club.

and the hardy person is resting on his laurels.

before we get in another fine mess !! ;)
