    The Nine who Voted with SL

    Posted on Barrow forum by Bearman ( Coventry) Our C.E.O has written to L.E asking where the information came from regarding the 9 clubs as we definitely voted NO. as there is a threat that anybody who voted NO would not receive any big games us (Ricoh) we can understand why some clubs kept their heads under the paraphet.We decided to stick our head above the paraphet and voted NO

    The Nine who Voted with SL

    Scotchy, Nobody said that Newcastle had voted in favour,what I said was that had been advised if they did not vote in favour they would not get any big games nor would the R.F.L back any application for a W.C. game.I also stated that I had no idea which way they voted as the R.F.L. had no power over Newcastle Council who would be the people making the application.So please read any post carefully before you post silly comments.

  5. According to the reports on radio Oldham had 2 men sent off and one in the bin at the end.Is that correct Amber.

    No, and neither do I know you Dave T but you do seem like a genuine poster with a genuine love for the game.Myself, I am 76 years old and have been a R.L. player and supporter since 1950 and believe me I know a lot of people in this game at a lot of the clubs and my source concerning this recent upheaval, if you can call it that,is one of the most informative people in the game.Anyway I think we should let this subject lie now Dave and see what,if any,progress the new structure brings.

    See above Bearmans post, my very,very credible source has also seen the email but I along with Bearman will not comment further on my source. Rochdale forum statement, " we would like to thank the R.F.L. and all Championship and League1 clubs for pushing through this revised structure"And I am in agreement with you there,I to will be surprised if it stays private.

    Just as an aside this is a club that was begging for donations from other clubs and their supporters.Ah well, lesson learned,no more will I be sending donations to any other club in trouble.

    Let us all hope that Rochdale (if they finish) bottom get there just deserts and get relegated and stay in League1 for the foreseeable future.And here is me thinking that in a members club the members get a say in any major decisions to be made.Just glad I am not in that club.

    Harry, I posted on Friday about the R.F.L.s influence in persuading certain clubs to vote for,including Newcastle but was criticised as posting a load of "Tosh" and not having a credible source.I am still waiting to hear how the poster knows who my source is and if he is credible or not.

    Dave T, and how do you know that W.C. stadium bans did not come from a reputable source?

    D.P. I fully agree with you,even if the R.F.L. refused to back their application the W.C. could have totally ignored the R.F.L. after all the W.C. applications are supposed to be "open" without any outside influence.I would Imagine Newcastle Council would know this and ignored them anyway.After all they did not have the vote, the Rugby League club had the vote.

    The R.F.L. could not stop them applying but would have not backed their application nor would they have designated any big games,i.e. Internationals etc. to the town.This by the way does not mean they voted for the proposals or not,they may have totally ignored them but I would have thought it was very doubtful they had.

    It was the R.F.L.,and no the club is not in S.Yorks. It was a rapidly developing club in League 1 who will be pushing at the top next season.That should make it easy for you deluded pom and Bob Bruce.Somewhere where they have had a few big games in the last couple of years.
