Perhaps if we draw a big club we can use the money we make to reinforce our squad.

I'd say that the really 'genuine' fans are the ones who aren't afraid to challenge, state their opinions and express their disappointment - as opposed to the sycophantic 'happy clappers' who won't/daren't say a word against anything.
Just to reiterate, as a 'genuine' fan of the club, I'm hugely disappointed that, whilst all of our rivals are currently strengthening with quality, experienced players, we've signed a young amateur player who didn't stand out for me at all during pre-season. I'd also like to add that, if Jacob Morgan is the only player we are able to add to our squad at a time of relative desperation (especially when other rival clubs are recruiting quality and experience), then our status as a Championship club will soon be under real threat.
I could lie and say; 'Wow! Fantastic! Well done to all concerned!". However, I don't feel that way whatsoever.
Seriously, this week our Heavy Woollen rivals have signed a former NRL halfback who would have been ideal for us, Doncaster have signed a prop who was playing NRL in 2014 (and a former England wingman last week), and Whitehaven have today recruited two forwards from Leigh who were in Super League last season.
I sincerely hope that we get to experience some excitement very soon.

yep , was one of our 3 trialists pre season , full back / wing

If this is the best we can do, then I really fear for us.

Of course they have. They finished a lot higher thane we did last season, and spent very little on recruitment this season.

Neither did we. We signed unknowns, a few journeyman, untried kids and three Whitehaven players.
We've been playing at a higher level than Doncaster for the majority of the last decade and a half. Shouldn't we naturally be in a better financial position than them - regardless of 2014 prize money?
Doesn't having our own ground enable us to raise more revenue than clubs who don't?
