This weekend's Kingstone Press Championship play off semi final between Featherstone Rovers and Sheffield Eagles will be played on Sunday 28th September, kick off 6:30pm.

The game will be played at the Big Fellas Stadium and the evening kick off has been agreed due to the ground being unavailable earlier in the day.

You may excuse it as "passion" but to admit young children and grandparents were in the area and claim "none were uncomfortable or insulted shows a huge lack of insight!

Where they going to confront a bunch of chanting males and ask them to shut up?

I have never heard a group of Eagles fans sink to the level you are defending, if I do I will confront the guilty parties.

So the Batley fans “made the day” with obscene chanting!

I would rather watch the game in silence.

Please explain the need to swear?

League prides it’s self with being a family game yet the chanting from the Batley following indicates that social skills are not their forte.

I've worked in the steel industry in Sheffield, yes we are still there, for 37 years and can swear loudly for a long time without repeating myself.

I do not do it in public,

Please can you provide evidence that Batley were aware of the regulations and knowingly cheated? 



I picked up a warning point for questioning the integrity of an official, which was even backed up by video evidence of the Sheffield game at home last year, so as a friendly word of advice, I would change your post mate or you could find those accusations could result in the same or maybe far worse and seen as libellous which could have very serious consequences for you.



FWIW, I very much doubt you will go down, and you will be back on here telling us all how much you are pleased that justice has been done after next weeks results.



I agree with LD on this I was hoping you would survive the drop, but due to the conduct of your coach and indeed some of your fans, my feelings have begun to change about your club, and to be honest although there are no winners in this sad episode, I'm starting to feel that I would actually like to see you take the fall, just to shut Wood and some of you moaners up. However that seems a little harsh on the great set of Whitehaven fans I have come to know over the years.



You really do not seem to take in to account the upheaval all this must have had over the last few weeks including the game at your place. We could argue that the upheaval has caused such distress in the camp that we want to replay the Dewsbury and Whitehaven matches now that the appeal has proven that the original decision was incorrect. The facts of the matter are though with or without an ineligible player we would have beaten Sheffield on the day, like we were not good enough to beat Whitehaven and Dewsbury on the day. So let it go eh?  


So you want evidence that anyone at Batley had read the rules, which would be the responsibility of an employee of the Club, yet state as a matter of fact that Batley would have beaten Sheffield without an ineligible player. Please provide the evidence!
