Does mine mate, some of them back tracking today, some of them who post on here were very quick to stick the blade in as well i noticed be careful what you wish for
I also note that many of those adding derogatory posts are also hiding behind psuedonyms, ie their user ID doesn't tell who they are. If you want to slag off the club or BOD on here, please have the bottle to give your name at the bottom, unless of course your user ID gives us that!

Having read this topic I'd just like to say you don't know how lucky you guys are having a bloke who is willing to bankroll the club.
Ok on Sunday you didn't play well but in fairness Swinton played the best 80mins of this season. Someone wrote the table doesn't lie and in all honesty you would have expected a Featherstone win.
As a Lions fan I'd happily welcome your chairman on board......he doesn't take to the field of play but I'd sure like his generosity.

ive heard mate , brave of em that want it ,makes you wonder what planet there on doesnt it , if he does go theyve got a lot to answer to , makes my blood boil after what hes done for us .

Keep off facebook. As Ned Flanders would say, "Its the devils creation". If folk have nowt else to do but slag each other off and read and post utter garbage and drivel, we have sunk to a new low.

I don't know the chairman or the board as I have only just returned to supporting the club however, the reason I have returned and travel 160 miles is my desire to see the Rovers where they belong in SL and it is the Chairman and B O Ds and their determination to see this happen who have re lighted my interest. Those who know me also know that I was a season ticket holder from being 10 in 1955 to the inception of SL, I only mention this because unlike many of the detractors and critics of the Chairman I am able to look at the situation with no agenda other than wanting the best for the club, and in my opinion the only way forward to get Featherstone on the map and boost not only the club but also the town of my birth is to give the Chairman our full backing and gratitude for making the dream possible. I can only guess that the fans forum will consist of those fans who really care so get there, ask the pertinent questions no matter how awkward they may be and then please post them on here so they can be analysed and discussed in a sensible manner by the true fans.

Well put.....Fev like all teams have no god given right to win every game; Swinton were far the best side but champion teams hang in there and had Fev sneaked it..it would have been an injustice;

As an outsider (Batley fan) theres no doubt the chairman is the main reason you've had the success you've had recently.

However a chairman wanting to meddle in team selection and removing coaches because they disagree with him is all a bit Des Johnson-esque, and we all know what happened there.

But hey, hes the money man and the guy in charge, so he can do what he likes, so no one can cahllenge what he does anyway!

With promotion and relegation on the cards again in the enar future, and the carrot dangling for an ambitious chairman to spend spend spend to get to the promised land, I just hope for your sake it doesnt all end in tears.
What we're dealing with here is a complete lack of respect for the law

A lot of folk were angry after the game it seems and took it out of the chairman some who should know better, i hope when the dust settlers he is a stronger willed man than me because i would be off like a shot
