A few people couldn't make Sunday but can now make the Friday so you ain't alone mate.. Can't please every fan . Got one fan moaning it's not a Saturday on twitter... If you want to be there so badly I'm pretty sure we can all be there for this one off match ?? What's done is done now

It's not really about individuals though is it ? The simple truth is that the gate will be less on Friday than it would be on Sunday. I just dont believe you can argue with this?

Yes that's true but what's done is done now. Quite frankly I'd support the club if they kicked of at 2am on a Tuesday morning... I'd be there. Even if I had kids work ect.. I wouldn't miss it for world but that's just me. And besides iv past caring. Too much negativity. Some fans have played it down from moment ball came out of bag... And that is pathetic.. You do realise they is people who read this who are fed up of the winging too. It's embarrassing . Do Leeds fans or superleague clubs fans winger everytime they have a sky match on a Friday night? No they turn up . This is a one off match... It's not like we play Friday every week. I do understand with what people are saying but winging constantly is getting annoying tbh. It's every week. If we won everything going and never lost a match they would still be some of you winging

As a few others on this thread have said, could "Official Rams Updates" explain to Dewsbury supporters why the date has been set for Friday 4th April. We all know it won't be played on our normal 3PM Sunday slot but as yet no official reason. 


Ricochet!

Dean ram...The Carboot runs until 12. Rugby league want games kickoffed no later than 2... Not enough time to get ready for match as gates would need to be open by 12.30 with a 2 kickoff. Pull a sicky mate ;) only joking :)

chris as shall we say ''the voice of experience'' speaking now

 

pitfalls in your statement

 

carboot can be cleared for 12 quite simply by motivating the punters to leave

 

next point as when I ran the carboot and also covered a wigan match,the carboot staff doubled up as stewards

this now is not the case and is done by a private company..so why cant they come in early along with ground staff

another point on matchdays we had junior games and those teams arrived for 1pm kick offs...the ground was ready and secure for 1pm kick off after the boot sale finished at 12

 

now can you see how the facts are crumbling that we cant do a 2pm kick off

 

think the problem is the golden goose that lays all those tax free golden eggs on a sunday morning,is far more important than the supporters views & feelings

 

and by having it on Friday the club think their getting the best of both worlds

 

we shall see

chris I cannot physically go

girlfriend works until 8pm...shes a new supporter too and also feels let down by the club as shes at work

 

I have 4 children under 15 youngest been 7 years old,how can I on earth bring them to a night match that could pull 2,500 folk

and safely watch the game and also keep an eye on them...im good and at times superhuman....but that my friend is a impossible task on your own

 

where as a sunday game they can run wild punching touch judges and pestering me every 5 minutes for chips or a drink while I & my other half enjoy the game and socialise

with our good friends on the south stand

 

try to understand how p.izzed I am at the clubs stance

 

MATCHDAY IS SUNDAYS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Can I just say people. Follow rams on Facebook and twitter and read the statuses and tweets .. I see no negativity ... It's all saved for here . I won't be on here tmora. Fed up of it tbh. If I'm there alone at match by myself I don't care, because ILL STILL BE THERE!!! UTR !!!!! You wonder why people like ossy and others left the forum. Stuff like this is why. Wigan played fev other year in cup at fev on a Friday night and guess what!! They didn't complain and got a full house. They enjoyed the occasion which is what we should all do

GFDU has explained what he thinks the reason might be. What I am after is the clubs official response as the decision has clearly upset a lot of loyal supporters.

I was p*ssed off about the Friday night ko at 1st, but Ive come round to it now.
There must be a good reason why it's happened. Maybe the club will be financially better off by having the Friday ko, if that's the case I'm glad the club made the decision they have.
Fans have 2 weeks to arrange babysitters or trying to change work hours. If you really want to be at the match, you'll be there.

look at it this way. No other matches on Friday so wakey Leeds batley fev fans ect may come support the rams too. I believe a night match adds to the occasion and from reading comments on FB I reckon the club may be suprised how well tickets will sell :)

Chris this is a principle thing
We play Sundays ( unless good Friday at home)
Fans structure their lives around keeping Sunday free as its our match day.
Suddenly were drawn at home against one of the biggest clubs... On history in the world...
And as a suspect kissed a.ss at every corner to accommodate their every wimp
would be surprised they get the home changing room
This could have been a massive platform to launch the club to another level
A full day to enchant new supporters
Into attending more home games
Giving them some kind of "wow factor"
And show the club how far it's come
And now lost
To be crammed in for a couple hours after tea
Bravo!!!


Let's see what the attendance is shall we. Coolie if they played the match in your back garden at a time to suit you you would find reason to complain.

Hey DTID if you are fed up with the negativity dont log on. I vacated this forum for the latter part of last season because of individuals trying to censor us. It worked for me. Forums are for moaners. We all know that and slow or limuted info from the club just adds to the fun.

Ricohet? Will you be attending still? Imsure the club will release a statement why later as they said they will be another statement in regards to tickets once tickets have been printed. Seem as Guest from down under is mates with mark and as inside info about the club though, that is probably the reason. He is very reliable

true and everyone is allowed an opinion, just like Wakefield ram says though. Some people would moan at it if it was played in there own back garden. I'm only trying to be positive because it should be a positive time. Shall you be attending nick?
