there were probably 1,000 people that didn't know it was £17 entrance fee till they got in the queue, .a little bit late to turn round then...,,,when inflation is 2% for everyone year after year ..why the  14% increase

I guess £15.30 is a bit fiddly at the turnstiles to keep your 2% increase.
At the end of the day it's a commercial decision. The outgoings have to be met by the income.
The board will have dusted off their crystal ball and decided how much they think we the punters will be prepared to pay week in and week out.
The decision is made.
It's now for us all to decide - are we prepared to pay?
Personally, I am.
Others, I accept, will find it more difficult to stump up the extra cash.
In the words of Esther Rantzen, That's life, I'm afraid.


#3011554 No more bonus points!

Posted by Sir Jekyll Stocking on 11 October 2014 - 01:18 PM

Did it actually affect the table/play-offs/relegation?

 

I ask because I don't know - not a wind-up.

After the first season we had bonus points I did a retrospective check on whether BPs made a difference on league standings compared to the previous years.

There was one change.

That season Dewsbury finished one place ahead of Batley, benefitting from bonus points. If the league places had been calculated on the basis of 2 points win 1 point draw Batley would have finished one place ahead of Dewsbury. As neither team were in contention for play-off or relegation that season it didn't really matter.

There being less boring things to do with my time, I've not bothered to check since.

I'd be more than happy to be proved wrong Griff, given your extensive knowledge of rugby league grounds in the 80's and your superior knowledge of the rules in terms of minimum ground regulations at the time, even I'm quite looking forward to seeing your evidence.

 

 

Don't hold your breath, Dogfather. Griff has resisted the temptation on numerous occasions to answer BSJ.

I think he gives lessons to eels on slipperiness.

I believe it's likely to be more attractive to those more "full of figure" (or "big boned", if you prefer) than yourself, GOR.

Black is supposed to be good for slimmers.

 

I'd rather wear pink, myself - but each to their own.
