From someone who's club has never employed one.

 

Oh ?

 

And how would you know who was responsible for pitch preparation and maintenance ?

No, that was a myth created by the RFU (about a Rugby school pupil GOR - Eton had a completely different game which included scrummaging against a wall followed by tormenting the working classes for 20 years; not a very edifying spectacle) after the breakaway to try to reinforce their credentials of origin and surpress the "professional game" along with the hoary-handed oiks who played it.

 

 

Gosh, I'm agreeing with Johnny.  :fie:  The Webb Ellis thing is, indeed, nonsense as it implies that Football was played with the feet alone in 1822 and Webb Ellis had this great idea about picking it up.  Nothing could be further from the truth.  Football was primarily a handling code and was called football because it was played by people on foot.

I don't know what shocks me more the fact that you agree with me or that a Sheffield fan has been to an away game :ph34r:

 

I saw every game they played until 2003 when I wasn't very well.  That includes the friendly in Darwin, NT. But thanks for your thoughts.

Why don't they just move to Rotherham Utds old stadium at Millmoor. Nobody's using that at the mo

 

Bearing in mind that Rovrum United found it cheaper to just build their own stadium, probably the rent's too high.

Batley must have 1500+, It is reputed to hold 7,500 and has two fully seated stands

 

You can get about 200 seats along a full touchline.  You shouldn't be far short of 1500 in the stand at the dressing room corner alone.
