#3000847 Eagles to help Keighley with legal costs

Posted by Gary Coyle on Today, 05:53 AM

I think that you will find that the SL minimum standards were suspended when it became clear that at least two clubs would be unable to meet them. Equally the proposed championship standards were also withdrawn.

There are a set of proposed new standards for the championship, probably to be implemented in 2016, and all clubs have been briefed as to what these are. Hence no club will have the excuse of not having a ground that meets these standards in 15 months time.

Most clubs, including mine, are putting these facilities into place now. Viz the work taking place on the eastern end of the ground.

Youre 100% right about the minimum standards as such being suspended, when photographing we were given a list of what was expected from us and the clubs regarding safe access etc, etc, several photographers complained about facilities at grounds like Saints old ground and Cas but when we were told the minimum standards were put on hold to save the likes of Wakey, Cas and Saints the clubs were allowed to implement their own strategies based on guidance from the RFL like not being allowed to sit behind the posts unless there was a minimum of 6ft clearance between the dead ball line and the next fixed object be that a stand, fence or advertising board, hence you can only shoot down the sidelines at Cas and you must be sat in the stands at Widnes

You can see where people are coming from,you hardly have a good relationship with Kevin,you have criticised a lot before

I appreciate that marko9 but certainaly not on this thread which is what i was accused of, i think its a great idea.

Because they like stirring it up. If Doncaster had not had the 3 points returned then Sheffield would have finished 4th instead of Doncaster and all that comes with that, so yes they have a gripe.

Cheers Roger.

Thanks Roger, i suppose we have to look at it as if we were in the same position, if we were im pretty sure Kevin would have gone after some compo as well, cest la vie

To be fair, i do remember a while ago when Dews were on the brink that several Batley fans including ones who actually post under their genuine names actually stated they hoped Dews went down and even went to the wall.

#2979074 Accountability

Just the lowest point in 17 years as Chairman. I think maybe it is too much to run the Club with the requirements of the current game, and run a profession, on a solo basis. Maybe it is time to have conversations with some of his contacts with a view to either beefing up the Board for additional support, or hand it over to new blood, but still retain an interest .

But thats not Kevin and how he works, he wants 100% total control over everything, he wouldn't work with anyone, he has to be pulling the strings, its his toy and nobody else is invited to play.

Another positive post from yourself. It is normal to give a source when quoting the words of others. At least this offering contain no homophbic comments, unlike your other recent posts. Surprised you dont get banned but I suppose you are above the rules the rest of us have to follow. In your case it certainly isn't what you know so must be who you know.

Ah, so you assumed the quotes were aimed at you, good job there.


When you talk about the rules, is that also the same rules regarding NOT having multiple identities, run along now.

So if Foxes sponsored the ground next season and paid handsomely for the privilege, would that be good for the club.

I enjoy a good book and as I was reading last night I came across a couple of quotes which are particularly apt .Both from the King James Version

John 8-7

He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone

Romans 2-1

Therefore thou art inexcusable, O man, whosoever thou art that judgest: for wherein thou judgest another, thou condemnest thyself; for thou that judgest doest the same things.

I did exactly the same Zuehb and came up with some quotes also


"He who hath no brain posteth shiteth on here" and my favourite one "shut the feck up yer plank"

If I am to buy some shares - as other fans have, I'd just like to know beforehand whether or not it would allow me the right to have my say - via a vote, on issues to do with the club. Is their any precedent towards which you could refer me? Whether or not I would be outvoted by my fellow shareholders and board members does not concern me. I just feel that democracy is an inherently important tenet of society which should be upheld at all costs. Once a closed shop is allowed to develop, a potentially damaging dictatorship soon emerges.

That happened 20 years ago Tom, but then you already know that mate.
