They have been cleared of that by the RFL - it was in League Express

Now they have to get past minimum ground standards for next season. I will be whispering in a few ears about that one maybe you could still be playing us in championship 1

Wot new stadium

1. Sheffield didn't make the allegation, that's just a rumour started by bitter Dewsbury fans

2. Sheffield loaned a player from Fev which was cleared by the RFL well before the deadline

3. Someone should tell the Sheffield board the new ground is fantasy island as the funding is in place, the technical college to go with the stadium has been cleared, the architects have designed it and their is a schedule to start building it in readiness for 2016

4. Would you all like some vinegar with your chips?

Other peoples' money again I presume.

 

When will Sheffield RLFC become self-sustaining?

We run more junior teams than anyone else in the comp, we have put a substantial amount of money into the proposed new ground, best sponsorship structure in the league, no handouts from the RFL thanks to Dewsbury's insistence all those years ago, I'd say we're pretty self-sustaining, thanks for the concern

I think that the bravado  from the eagles is a little inconsiderate towards the other championship clubs  considering that they were given special dispensation from those same clubs to play their home games for the time being at the totally not fit for purpose owlerton .

There's no bravado, I just get bored of people sticking it into the club when its all based on false rumours and lies.

Sheffield (allegedly) may have their own problems with a loanee not having a valid work permit (allegedly).

 

Don't understand this - that's not how loans work.  Clubs don't pay loan players, they pay the club which owns the registration.

Isn't 2016 the year in which Back to the Future is set ?   Shouldn't we be riding hoverboards by then ?

Is Dewsbury self sustaining yet, Johnny ?  Or does it still rely on Mark Sawyer ?

It relies upon its shareholders yes, not upon local taxpayers with no interest in RL.

Not self sufficient then, eh ?  But, then, who is ?

 

Nothing from work in the schools ?

Relying upon shareholders funds is self-sufficient, but maybe you meant sustainable, which it isn't.

Well, there we disagree.

 

"Self-sufficient" means the club survives on the income it generates from its operations - not borrows from whatever lenders it can find.

 

Few clubs are "self-sufficient".  Maybe only Leeds.  Maybe not even Leeds.

Here's a thought; when we're deducted points and lose our place in the division as a result, will the individual responsible for incorrectly registering Fairbank do the right thing by taking responsibility and gracefully falling on their sword?
I know that in many business environments, a resignation would be offered in this context.
