#2997006 Points Deduction

Posted by greavesy on 17 September 2014 - 07:32 AM

You're right. Batley could have argued that and asked for a dispensation.  But they didn't.


Workington, on the other hand, did put a case forward for a dispensation and got it.


That's the difference.

you are the most boring T*** on this forum can you not go and play on the Sheffield forum with the other 2 fans you have.

#2996922 Points Deduction

Posted by greavesy on 16 September 2014 - 09:30 PM

Or we could all stop going on and on about points deductions , panels etc. Kieghley are appealing fair enough if it was Batley in their position i would do the same but lets wait and see what the outcome of it is. People on here going on and on will not alter anything.

  If i could change anything it would be to scrap D/R for good it has ruined a perfectly good championship which was doing very well thank you before the super duper league tried to turn us into their reserve teams. Please do away with it NOW. Let all the clubs stand or fall on their own two feet it worked before why not give it a try.

  To add one more thing on a personel note and my wish list bring back reserve team rugby teams can have a bigger squad, bring players back after injury and trial promising youngsters as a side the RL could insist that clubs use some of the extra Sky monies to fund this. Just a few thaughts from a long time rugby league supporter.

Well what can you say ? What a fantastic performance from the team today. Three times now the club have had to win to stay up Dewsbury, Fev,and Doncaster and 3 times they have responded in the positive. Today was the best for me we hardly put a foot wrong. Rettie, Brown, Applegarth, and Black the pick of a superb performance IMO. You can corner the bulldog put his back to the wall and then stand back these Bulldogs Bite. Congratulations to all concerned at the club for turning around a near impossible situation. By that i mean: the board, coaching staff, and the players. Today the fans played their part too with a non stop wall of noise and chanting to back the team. Cannot wait for next week at Sheffield and a chance to ram the critisism from Aston back down his throat. If we lose it is not the end of the world though. Today mattered and we responded, the word to sum it all up is "AWESOME"

Down and out through a failure by the coach and the board to do not only the simple things right but bad player recruitment, bad descitions by Kear and a slow to react board of directors to the obviose threat of relegation.

not really very sporting of the batley boards
silencing him in this troubling time for batley
yes he swore... nothing bad or directed at anybody...
but it appears some people can say what they like
regardless of been reported or not
with some people who think their god
saying who or who has not a voice

rather petty IMO john

and as in my case i was banned without warning or reason..

seems freedom of speech is been stuffed out without a valid reason.

very not in the spirit of the boards

and batley is the only board hes banned on

Only insomniacs want to read what that fool types IMO.

Very inventive Tom enjoy the moment  bulldogs usually bite back maybe not Sunday but it will happen. We have been top dogs( forgive the pun) for a long time 10 yrs and more . It must feel strange after your yrs of relegation and administration as i have said enjoy it we will be back !.

Mis-information is a terrible thing. The share certificates have voting rights and are equal in every way to those owned by the Chairman. As a forfeit for your post, may I advise that further shares are available and funds received will be spent on next seasons players. Just speak to the Chairman and explain you would like to support the club.

What if you are a shareholder and do not even get invited to the shareholders meeting ?. By the way i hope your health is on the up mate.

#2975448 Sheffields unfit for purpose stadium.

Posted by greavesy on 11 August 2014 - 03:57 PM

This is a really futile thread.
Sheffield were given the 'ok' by the games governing body to play their games at Owlerton. End of story.
We used an ineligible player during a game against them. This player then had a big influence on the result of that game. Sheffield were quite right to complain - as would any other club would have done.
Our own club then responds by somewhat childishly making tepid and seemingly unfounded allegations of wrongdoing against Sheffield - who let's not forget were absolutely right to make their complaint against us.
It's all a bit pathetic on our part quite frankly. A lot of it is, I would assert, borne out of jealousy at the Sheffield clubs ability to sign top quality players and achieve success despite having few of the advantages we have obviously failed to tap into.
Probably best that we forget about the Sheffield club and concentrate on how best to deal with our own, self-inflicted demise.

So lets all ignore the ground minimum standards we will just concern ourselves with the mix up of the D/ R regulations. I do not think we tried to gain a unfair advantage. I do think certain clubs get favourable help from the RL. I did not enjoy the expieriance of Owlerton as i have said it is unfit to stage matches. Therefore they are bending the rules by playing there

#2975160 Sheffields unfit for purpose stadium.

Posted by greavesy on 11 August 2014 - 09:01 AM

Just a thaught but if the worst happens  and we are relegated what about a official complaint against the state of Owlerton. There is no way that stadia has the minimum standards. And if the RL are seriose having grounds fit for purpose we have a case. As the highest club relegated we would replace Sheffield. After all if we do get relegated it was Sheffield who did the wingeing about Fairbanks. I am sure the Sheffield chairman and Aston would like that ( not ).

And next up we play Dewsbury. How much fun for them if they put the final nail in our coffin. We started the season with 1  half back we were poor . We finish the season with 1 half back also poor its like groundhog day. The lack of ambition by our club has for once let us down. And our recruitment ,well enough has been said on that one. Feeling very let down have heard we still had funds available in Bissa we should have gambled  IMO.

28- 13 Rowe sent off a dismal day for Batley. The folly of a wafer thin squad has been exposed. Goodbye Championship.

#2972633 DR mess

Posted by greavesy on 06 August 2014 - 08:15 PM

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  

#2972621 Oh dear

Posted by greavesy on 06 August 2014 - 07:57 PM

hows that gonna work donny lose 3 and batley lose 3 ( which in reality theyve lost none)

there has to be 3 points difference between the punishments if donny get 1 batley 4 donny get 2 batley get 5... the 3 points batley got for the win have to be stripped plus what donny get as a punishment.

There is a white line needs hand painting between junction 28 and 29 on the moterway Do you fancy it Coolie ?. Surely better to try that than post the utter drivel you come up with on this post.
