You disagree with absolutely everything I say, It's a default position of yours.
It's not a "self appointed conclusion" to state that Rovers crowds have gone nowhere in eight years, they have won nothing or been near, their academy is fourth rate and may be closed and they leak £500,000 a year. These are the facts.
From these you conclude Rovers have "made credible progress".
Your a grand old man of RL I know, I don't mean to offend you, but this is how it is. As I keep saying I say black you say white, I say red you say white. Fair enough let's agree to disagree no need for us to reply to each other.....
I certainly disagree with most of what you say but not all. I agree for instance that he 3 x 8 system is bogus.
You come from the glass is half empty view of thin gs RL and I come from the glass is half full position so it is inevitable we will disagree a lot.
Your view of Hull KR is from your half empty viewpoint. My take on it is that Hull KR have come from CC1 to SL, growing their crowds from 1,000 plus to 7,000 plus that's a 700% increase. The club made the playoffs last year. Their academy, whilst maybe not the best is light years better than it was when it didn't exist in CC1. Craven Park was a dilapidated mess. Now it has an excellent new pitch, an expanded side stand and a brand new state of the art end stand. Money has been spent. They have a very long term lease on the ground whereas Hull rent the KC1 stadium. The losses of 500,000 are troubling but are known and Hudgell has given plenty of advanced warning to enable the club to deal with it. I am optimistic for their progress. This next season will be their first since the new stand was completed. Lets see if it has a positive effect on attendances. It certainly worked for FC when they moved the Boulevard.
Yes, I am old but to put that into the argument is the same as saying I err because I am black or female. Their is no reason for that to be part of this or any other discussion.
I respect your contributions to this forum but I reserve my right to disagree. I am willing to bet that if we ever met we could have a beer and a real old ding dong discussion on all things RL.
I will continue to counter your points when I disagree because the Goebels effect of telling and repeating facts often enough instills the belief that they are correct has to be contested.
