I see Keighley are threatening legal action, and I can't blame them tbh, although I think they would have been wiser starting this process BEFORE their relegation was confirmed.

 

Not commenced legal action before relegation but our Chairman was already asking questions , this statement was put out by the Club a week before the Fev match

'In terms of the Batley and Doncaster rule infringement I am currently seeking clarification from the RFL whether or not both teams were punished at all for breaking the rule. The PR that was put out was inconclusive and seems to suggest that no sanction was applied.

Obviously, in the light of general acceptance that they did break the rules I would have anticipated some form of punishment or else there would be no point in having the rule if it can't be enforced."'

Interesting they never said anything a coupleofweeksago!

 

 

 

 

Mmmmm. think you may be wrong there Mr, this statement was released from the Club around a week prior to the final league matches by our Chairman regarding action by the club post reinstatment of the point by the RFL....

Don't blame Batley,


you 're seriously having a giraffe mate .... I can blame my own team for not performing up to standard ,..but then Im supposed to as a Keighley fan say , ' well don't worry we're relegated , we we'rnt daft enough to join in the stupidity that is DR , but hey Batley did and didn't play to the rules but it doesn't matter cause the RFL have made a mistake any way '.If Batley hadn 't buggered it in the first place it wouldn't be down to the RFL, SIMPLES ..so how can you not apportion any blame to them ???

Something similar already exists, as all pro/semi-pro clubs have to buy a number of tickets to sell-on as a condition of their entry to the challenge cup. I know that a few Ch. Clubs struggled to sell their allocation this year.

 No problems with that at all.. but the tickets that the RFL supply to Championship Clubs are the worse in the stadium that would be the last to sell to supporters ...

 

i'm a longtime Keighley fan but have only once bought tickets from the club ..never again ..choose now to purchase via the RFL or the finalists . at least then I know I'll see the game rather than midgets in the distance ..

 

The RFL need massively to get a grip of the Final ..this years presentation was appalling..we've the Steven Mullaney Memorial game of youth rugby kicking off nearly two hours prior to kick off ..WTF ??? ... most folk would love to see that game but then if they go into the stadium at that point they have to endure an hour of banal pre match 'entertainment' after that before 'Abide with Me'.......words fail me...

It's probably the over-sensitive side of me but it did make me a little uncomfortable though considering Marc Green is Jewish...

Apologies TBH I wasn't aware of that  certainly wasn't done intentionally I can assure you and if anyone feels really strongly about that I'll take it down ,

 

Providing they stay up themselves. Or won't that matter under the new system? I don't really pay attention to the lower league peasants whatwhatwhat.

Very true indeed , we are wavering just above the brink ... truthfully the spoof was made more as a bit of light relief for Cougar Supporters , after a couple of shocking results , than to have loads of hits from other clubs .Quite a few of the cracks are very much 'in house' only really to be understood by those at Cougar Park
