Lezignan 7th May - Ladies Day

104 posts in this topic

Why Saturday night? To cater for the huge away following?

Probably to fit in with the flights to save the RFL a bit of cash, though I'm surprised they don't seem to be having Lezignan and Catalans on the same flight (the Leigh and Salford squads flew out together to France the other year as the games kicked off at the same time).

Lezignan are a very handy side apparently, should be a good game. Might pop across if I can.

Hmm, this little snippet might be useful for you Daniel to read up on rather then spouting stuff.

According to British Legislation. There is no reference to discriminating against men.

Hmm, that little snippet is 35 years old. This little snippet is the one you should have been looking for before you tried to be clever.

I'm not sure it is Daniel. Positive discrimination to encourage minorities is allowed in some circumstances I believe.

All female short lists in selection for MP's by the labour party is an example of this!

If you made blokes pay more to compensate - that would make it illegal I think!!

The club is trying it's best to encourage new fans, more females (mums might bring kids etc)!

I honestly can't see the issue.

am I missing summat???

Robin, you're right positive discrimination is allowed in some circumstances, in some work circumstances.

It's commendable for clubs to try to encourage new fans, but do it legally.

The issue is that your club is promoting an illegal promotion, maybe they didn't realise it when it was thought up, but that doesn't matter.

What will happen when a man turns up wanting to come in for free? Will he be denied or will he be let in?

Daniel.

So were you OK with Kids go free? If not you may want to go after the RFL and competition sponsors?

Is it OK that clubs have different age criteria for concessions?

Should the percentage difference charged between categories always be the same?

There really are bigger things to worry about. Forgive us for trying a new initiative that may increase the diversity of the crowd and attract a few new people to the game. BTW, last years was a success and the plods have not been knocking yet.

Perhaps we should have a family ticket for three parent families cos our current ones do not cater for all?

Ovo - (presumably related to the person posting this offer on every club's message board) and hence so defensive about it

I was fine with Kids go Free.

Yes it's ok that clubs have different age categories for concessions.

I don't see what family tickets have to do with anything?

"BTW, last years was a success and the plods have not been knocking yet."

Cracking justification that is, I'm sure it's the same mentality a lot of the criminals have that are yet to be caught!

Yes he will daniel - it's Ladies free day!!!! :rolleyes:

Don't wanna come, fair do's! But I really don't see the issue. No-one is making you pay more than would have otherwise been the case!

I just don't get your mantra one bit!

Not defensive Daniel, just trying to do my best for my club. Annoyed would be the more correct term. The fact that people give up their lives in order to try and promote this great game of ours and all people want to do is go public and whine and moan. Well you know, I am not a lawyer. I practice common sense and passion to try and make things work for my club.

My wife posted it on other Forum's and she shares the same philosophy. No wonder people are walking away from the game, because when people try to do things with good intentions there is always someone who want to have a moan.

So let me ask you this... why do you care so much? and what laws have you unintentionally flouted lately. Oh wait, you don't know what you don't know - Do you?

Oh and BTW, since this is a shared gate you have to have these things approved by both clubs and the authorities do know. Maybe they need a lesson as well?

Probably see you at Dewsbury in a few weeks

Many a bloke will be happy that women are being let in for nowt cos some won't have to pay for wives girlfriends and daughters etc( or am I making a sexist remark? )I know lets make the women pick the litter up at the end of the game to make them earn their keep!!! All this politically correct stuff makes me puke; Well done Rovers keep up the good initiatives;

what a corn hole!! I just can't for the life of me understand the sentiments here! Folks at Fev, and indeed all over rugby league are flogging thereselves daft to try and findextra ways of generating interest/income etc.

This is another initiative. There's more to bloody life than looking for 'holes to fill'!!

Daniel, if you want to come, Brill - it's £15 mate. If you don't - I'll live with it!!!

Failing that, get Special Branch on the job. The've not got much on at the mo!!

For heavens sake!! IS IT ME, OR AM I REALLY MISSING SUMMAT???? :rolleyes::rolleyes:

You'd have thought with 5 defeats from 7 games Daniel would have bigger concerns!

Glad he pointed it out, I'm getting on the phone to my solicitor tomorrow to sue Sheilas wheels insurance company. Them and Saga, ones discriminating sex and the others ageist.

Oh, and the one that Parkinson advertises, got to be over 50 for that plan!!!! :wacko::wacko:

In fact, all car insurance companies, they are all safe driverist against maniacs who keep crashing :blink::blink:

I'm working, so is the club being workist by not moving the game to accommodate me? No, are you sure? Surely theres a bit of legislation somewhere!!!! :rolleyes::rolleyes:

aaaaaaaaaaand (deep breath) Relax :sleep:
