#3266521 Leigh at home - the big kick off

Posted by Chris_T on 02 February 2016 - 10:01 PM

Lowton believe me John Kear has no input in 'stuff' like this. I'm struggling to find the words to describe our advertisement, just that it is not officially from the club.

It absolutely is officially from the club. I'm guessing that your post is suggesting that this poster was designed by the marketing volunteers , It wasn't. Our usual designer, who designed some excellent poster last season is dealing with a family bereavement and is unavailable at the moment. We asked the club to make one last minute which we printed and distributed. The million pound theme was suggested to us, we said we weren't keen on the idea but it went ahead. JK used it in his sound bite at the Championship opener yesterday so he may be using it to gee up the lads. It's out there now, the next posters will be better and we will keep doing what we can to market the club.

A lot of sheeite seems to originate in the Batley area, does King Mason still roam the streets - the two of you have posted 2 different reasons within a few posts, another 20 or so and all bases may be covered

Touchy! We are playing the leagues big spenders and dead Certs for the league leaders, of course we are going to take pleasure in a bit of disruption to your camp. I didn't post a specific reason as I wouldn't want to be banned from the forums. But I have a sneaky feeling there will be a fair bit more disruption before next Sunday. The wheels haven't come off yet but you've got a puncture and Batley face you before green flag will turn up.

Last season the marketing team ran a match ticket hide and seek challenge on social media which was well received. We are running this idea again for 2016 so I thought I would post the clues on here for those who are not on social media.

There are 2 family tickets for the Leigh game (2 adults and 2 children) hidden around the local area. Clues will be posted daily until the tickets are found. All we ask is that you send us a selfie with the ticket in the hiding place when you find it.

We are hoping that families will go out and about hunting together and that some new families will be introduced to the Bulldogs in the process. 


Clue 1 ticket 1




Clue 1 ticket 2 



The next clues will be released tomorrow evening if you need them!!!



#3251933 Roy Powell Trophy: Dewsbury Rams v Batley Bulldogs

Posted by Chris_T on 28 December 2015 - 03:39 PM

Marketram id like to formally appologise on behalf of the Bulldogs fans your right they shouldn't be using their own forum to praise their players, reflect on a win and look forward to the season ahead. Dewsbury Rams are ace! Your town is a thriving Honey pot attraction, your women beautiful and sophisticated and all your dads could have ours with one hand tied behind their backs. Were jealous bear with us.

I think the photo is a good way of reminding us how far the ground has come on. Its a long standing RL trait the 'victor Meldrew syndrome' finding a negative where one dosent need finding.

#3240728 squad number's

Posted by Chris_T on 29 November 2015 - 08:54 AM

My guess is Tony Tonks will eat as much as me on Christmas Day, if thats the case he'll be too pogged it pull his socks up. Wait n see, I bet his socks are rolled down to his ankles on Boxing Day. Rowey will deal with him like any other pudding at Christmas.

Pineapple, Mango, Cumquat, Passion Fruit even?

The excitement must be difficult to contain.

What's the matter with you Scrooge! your last few posts have been very cynical, even by your standards. You should be enjoying the next month of advent celebrations before you get Tonked on Boxing Day.

#3240577 28/11 - Batley Xmas lights - Marketing

Posted by Chris_T on 28 November 2015 - 06:31 PM

After a terrible start weather wise, we managed to get a few flyers and biscuits out and Battler got pride of place next to Santa at the switch on. Fingers crossed the weather will be better for Birstall on Tuesday.

Posted by Chris_T on 28 November 2015 - 09:33 AM

The Bulldogs marketing team will be at the Batley switch on from 12pm today. Battler will be handing out Free kids season ticket flyers, balloons and Foxs biscuits. BISSA and the supporters club will be holding a stall also so a good unified presence today. Hopefully Battler should be on stage for the actual switch on. Hope to see plenty of Gallant Youths down there today.

I think the majority of Coolies inane Ramblings are down to his feelings of inadequacy regarding the size of his Tiddler.

#3172019 Biggest game of the season?

Posted by Chris_T on 06 August 2015 - 06:38 PM

This season has been a disaster but the squad is a cok hair away from being a decent side, the players who have resigned have all been chased by other clubs. Dewsbury have finished 11 points clear of us and I can honestly say I feel there are only 3 players there that would improve our squad, Grady,Thackery,Seymore. Had we had those three in our squad then I would expect us to have made the top 5. With our budget you are taking a risk every season that the squad you assemble will cut it. At the start of the season with 2 superleague trained halfbacks who had Championship experience, and Leak and Nicholson as backup I wasn't overly worried. Things just haven't clicked, but if we unearth a gem for next season (probably have to be from Aus or France looking at the halfbacks in the Engish game today). Then the squad we have assembled already could do very well.

No problem at all with your opinion or your pedigree as a Bulldogs fan Phildog but there must be 10 other threads on this forum regarding the clubs inability to sign a half back. You could have easily resurrected one of these rather than derail a positive news thread. Just my opinion but the negativity on here is damaging to the club. I'm not a happy clapper and am very frustrated with this season but prefer to moan with my pals on the terraces rather than on a public forum that can be seen by potential new supporters or sponsors. At a recent school Gala I gave out three family tickets to families who all like RL on Sky but have never been to the Mount Before. I told them to look online and pick the game they wanted to visit. If they happen upon here they might not bother coming. Just my opinion but the negativity of the fans (often myself included) makes it hard to market the club. Anyway I avoid posting on here 90% of the time as it's usually ends in an argument. Welcome to the Mount Chris hope you score a bucket load of tries. It seems an age since we had a Pacific Islander at the club, the last I can remember being Mike Kuiti.

A positive post derailed to negativity within 5 posts. We have signed a potentially exciting back with a 4trys in 6 games score ratio but You feel the need to bypass that and suggest signing a Fax fringe player who's name you do not know. There are plenty of folk on here who are too negative for my liking but I know them to be die hard, home and away fans who are frustrated and care about the the club but I've got to say you are the exception Phildog. Negative for the sake of it.

#3140532 Well played Batley

Posted by Chris_T on 14 June 2015 - 04:28 PM

Well done today lads, it was probably the first home game in 30 years where I thought about not bothering turning up but I dragged myself up and it was a belter. 100% effort all round. Scott's kick offs and bombs were superb and the defence Brutal. No problem loosing games when the effort and excitement is there. With Cain and Johnny back next week, we can't be far away from a win.
We done all
