I think it's a great pity. I have always enjoyed reading it and just ignore messages and streams that don't mean anything. I think it's a great way of communicating and expressing serious views on performances etc. A lot of stuff is now on Facebook but I can't follow FB and overall there is more rubbish that FB than anywhere.
Nice to meet you today Ron and put a face to messages. Hope you had a good trip back.
I am sometimes concerned at the amount of criticism and comments about the BOD and volunteers in the Club that I must leave a message of praise.
Last week my wife and myself were fortunate enough to win a prize of Boardroom Hospitality on the new 500 Super Lotto. The prize consisted of a 3 course lunch, match programmes, drinks and post match presentation in the Lewthwaite Suite with buffet and drinks.
We were extremely impressed with the way we were looked after and I would like to thank the BOD and volunteers for making our match day experience so pleasureable (apart from the result). I understand that this is the first season that guests have been treated to a 3 course lunch.
I think I'm right in saying that Boardoom Hospitality is given to all sponsors on the day and visiting officials.
In future I think that everybody who works to keep this Club going deserves full credit from all supporters.
We are all quick enough to criticize RFL. Now is our chance to make comments. The RFL are running a survey. In case anybody is interested in filling it in the website address is www.surveymonkey.com/s/letstalkrugbyleague
I've always been against DR but I tend to agree with others on here that something must be done very quickly to stop the slide. The gates in CH1 are abysmal and are usually well below 1,000. Once the home gates fall it is difficult to get them up again. I thin we are still benefitting from gates created 5 years ago but they can vanish very quickly.
Completely agree Furry. I.ve been following Barrow for over 50 years and sometimes wonder where our game has gone. Great traditional Clubs like Barrow, Swinton, Oldham, Keighley and many others have been sacrificed in the name of 'expansion' and 'Sky'. I think it's all very sad or am I completely old fashioned.
