Keep feeding us the lines from the Office mate at least its something to work on. So it looks like RBC are the ones to lobby on this then. Now get back onto Wynny and ask how we can do this. (Timescales) and report back.




Not from the office pal but from the the Dale fans forum and the Observer.

AFAIK a deal "in principle" has been done between the RFL and RAFC but it has stalled because RMBC as co-owners have vetoed the deal for now.


Again AFAIK they were asked to write off a large part of a loan that they either made to RAFC or Denehurst Park Ltd and were unwilling to do so.

Have Hornets Members voted to sell their shares in the Stadium to Rochdale FC - surely not. But I believe this deal is now with Solicitors.


In return a proposed 25 year lease.


I cant see members having voted for this, so who is overseeing this deal then.


Keep the shares at all costs. Yes they have been used as a loan guarantee in the past but we must keep hold of these shares or at least a percentage of them. The people running Hornets at present are only Custodians and have no right to sell the shares. They will move on soon. The Towns RL fans should decide this.




Hornet's members voted to support the RFL in their proposed sale of their stadium shares to RAFC.



A 25 year lease was/is offered, along with substancially reduced anual rent, members did actually vote to support the RFL. It's recorded in the minutes.

Well you've got to be a member to attend the meetings. Not everybody with an opinion is.


What's the point of someone having an opinion, whether it's a positive or negative one, when all they do is shout it into a corner or an empty room, and that's what this forum is basically. No one's going to listen to it.


There's fans of a club not too far from us who've been asking for a meeting with their club for years so they can give their opinions and not been able to. It beggars belief that some who may not be happy or would rather see things run another way wouldn't make that known to those that could change things.


That's my opinion.
