  1. Jordan Baldwinson aside, who we've had on loan for the past two seasons, the number of other Leeds players to appear this season works out at less than one per game. Out of the 23 games played Achurch, Golding, Handley, Lilley, Mullalley and Briscoe have all played three games each. How does that justify being called Leeds A team? So if Leeds want to block our path in the middle eights it's not likely to affect us enough that we'd notice much is it? Full time team Bradford had three loanees playing yesterday but I suppose that's different. Jon Sharp is, of course, employed by Featherstone Rovers and he picks the Rovers side, not Brian McDermott. Our stand out players this season have been our own and any suggestion that we've been carried along by Leeds Rhinos is as ridiculous as the uninformed and unsubstantiated comment that Rovers have no SL ambitions any more. Tell that to chairman, Mark Campbell Parky I've not been on this forum for some time but I see it hasn't changed much.

    Next Season

    Heard tonight we've signed an exceptionally good player for next season. Pretty sure we'll be very competitive next year come what may.

    And Heppy. Would have stayed on if he'd have been wanted.

    As a pal of mine says... Form is temporary, class is permanent. Just needs his confidence back and hopefully he'll rediscover it at Dewsbury and look forward to seeing him back in Rovers colours before very long
  5. Just making the point that Wakey and Bradford are victims of their own pricing folly and could now suffer the consequences of it under the restructuring. I've actually no idea whether Donny could make it as a SL club or not. If we've only enough fans for seven or eight competitive SL clubs then perhaps the RFL might have discovered a way to attract more interest. Shall we wait and see?
  6. Wakefield's were as low as £125 a couple of seasons ago which was a good bit cheaper than Fev's
  7. We only have relegation this season Parky. The effect, or not, on attendances won't be truly evident until 2015, although I do expect Rovers attendances to increase considerably yet again this year
  8. I don't go for excuses Parky, gets you nowhere. Licensing failed spectacularly as the 'dinosaurs' predicted and if the new 2015 system fails as the 'nouveau dinosaurs' predict then I'd expect the RFL to try something else.
  9. As I said though Griff, let's give it a chance.
  10. Well I asked because I didn't know the answer but I've been in crowds as low as 3000 -7000 at Headingley so it hasn't always been rosey has it? In fact if they were almost relegated one year but for Fev beating Oldham. I also remember The iconic Odsal when little more than 300 were in attendance for a first team game. Times and fortunes change.Let's see what Wakey's crowds are this season now that they aren't doing half price season tickets, forged season tickets and freebies. They've already said the 5300 stadium capacity will be adequate for the first few home games. Using Rovers' cup tie crowds to assess their league potential is ludicrous when even the big guns can't pull them in for such games. Why should Rovers in SL be deemed to only have the potential to attract a few hundred more than they did 20 ago for top flight rugby when the overall trend since SL evolved suggests much greater? Seems a flawed argument to my mind. We're back to P&R with a system which the RFL believe will capture the imagination of RL lovers old and new. Let's give it a chance, you might just be surprised at the outcome.
  11. So what were Leeds averaging at this particular time Parky? It's nearly 20 years since Rovers were in the top flight. How does it have any relevance to what might happen should Rovers join SL sometime in the future or even take the ascendancy in the WMDC area?
  12. I'd have thought they'd start a completely new system as they mean to go on Griff ie league placings. That's entirely what the new structure is based upon.
  13. Well, in a way, but you can't get any higher than the pinnacle of your chosen sport..
  14. I'd say it will be just as meaningful this year as any other Griff with a trophy and cash prize and sod all else.
