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!!!
Maybe I flamed the new poster a bit but, hey, this is a RL forum!
