there's some sad green -eyed f@ks out there :rtfm: the bloke started this thread cos its his preference for Barra to stay up and merely stated some home truths.if ya cant take it butt out .best of luck to Barra (doing things the RIGHT WAY). B)



We have done it the right way and within the rules set by the RFL. If you were a suburb in a city that is mostly industrial buildings and immigrants and you had only 500 supporters and no sugar daddy what would you do? We are a fan's club who can't develop our own talent as they all go to Leeds and Leeds have been taking them for years. We have no money and low gates not like lucky gloating SL wannabies Fev. So we do what we can WITHIN THE RULES

Good luck to the Raiders, be good to have all three Cumbrian sides

in the same league again next season.  No offence to Swinton, or Hunslet fans,

personally would like to see the Cougars go down, now that would be amusing but

highly unlikely.

Good look Barrow. I sincerely hope you stay up.
Though I hate DR and all it's politics, I hope Barrow survive simply because I thoroughly enjoy our trips to Barrow and that we've met some cracking folk up there we enjoy having craic with.
Just win a the weekend folks

Good luck Barrow I also hope you stay up. Stuck to what you believe in and picked your own players I will be watching the score

Just for the Hunslet and Swinton fans I believe you abused the DR system and local championship players will be lost to the game because of what you have done. U23 DR I would have no problem but McShane Moore your looking after Leeds not yourself and if you do go down the penny may drop

maybe so... but I believe they are slowly getting it right now. I support their approach to the DR and their tennacity to survive and work their way through the mess left to them through that era.

Quite a lot of teams cheat but get away with it, I'm quite glad we got caught as we'd probably be in a much bigger mess now I think

In reply to "JT" and others I'm still waiting for someone to offer evidence as to how Swinton have "abused" the DR system? Instead of repeating hear say from down the pub give us some actual facts. E.g. Of the 13 that beat Barrow 22-0 eleven were bona fide Lions players, & 2 were DR, young players who have never been Wolves regulars & one of whom was only playing coz our full-back Hawkyard was suspended. Before anyone spouts Morley & Briers, Morley has played once (in the NR Cup) and Briers once, both when recovering from injury. Not ideal I admit, but hardly abuse and an unfair advantage.

But you don't support Hunslets tenacity to survive which doesn't involve CHEATING but only involves utilising a Dual reg system brought in by the RFL under RFL rules and regulations? I'm confused!

Hi guys, I just want to say the very best of luck to you this Sunday, you deserve to stay in this division if not only for refusing to join in the dual reg farce. We will be doing our best to spank Hunslet this Sunday and send them down instead of you, it's just a shame that they can't go down with Swinton as the worse offenders of using established current SL players.
Yours is always one of our favourite away days, this season around 50 of us stayed overnight and had a great time, made to feel most welcome by the locals and I for one want to do it all again next season so shut mouthy March up and send them packing with their botty's spanked.

My mate Ben Hellewell has been briefed of what is required this sunday.

Good luck from all at fev

The people running Barrow now are guilty of nowt. Nor are their fans who are left with their bod picking up whhat's left of their club.

I suppose it's a matter of opinions/choice.

I like Barrow and have met many of their fans who's company I enjoy. We have always been made welcome there and because of those experiences a good many of us have a soft spot for Barrow.

They chose not to support the DR system as other clubs have but to continue with "THEIR" on squad and keep championship players in the championship.

Though the RFL have ratified the use of the DR system I (and a good many others) abhor the system and would prefer to see a club in the championship that gives lads a chance rather than leaving them out to support a SL clubs players re-hab, fitness levels etc etc and all the other arguments that have been proliferated re the DR system.

It's just a matter of choice..... which team would I prefer in the championship next year?? I don't hate hunslet, their fans or club. I just prefer Barrow for lots of reasons as mentioned and some reasons I choose not to post on public fora.

It must have taken a while for the news to get over to your place....

It was the end of the 2011 season when Barrow were deducted the points.

 

Practically (bar 1 game this weekend) 2 years on, the BOD are doing an outstanding job trying to clear up the mess left from that period.

 

Are you suggesting that cheating financial irregularities are still going on now at the club?

 

I think the comments from fans of other clubs are complimentary for not using the Dual Reg system, even though we are struggling at the foot of the table. It could have been an easy option cop out to tie ourselves up with a SL club but the BOD chose not to. Instead sticking with the vast majority of local lads and making use of the Loan System.

Swinton, Hunslet et al are doing nothing wrong.
The RFL set the rules and some teams chose to to apply them and others didn't.
Unfortunately, someone has to be relegated. I hope it's not us and if we do stay up I will feel for the fans of that relegated club.
But whatever happens tomorrow I'd like to say thanks to all the fans and all the players of every club that have given me some lovely days out this season.
