I think the useful days of this forum are sadly drawing in. I'd like to raise glass to all that have sailed in it, I've met some good folks through this media, but now I think, for me it's coming to a natural end. I sincerely hope that my fellow Fev followers can continue to follow the team they love in harmony, I will leave you all with one final thought, fall out with one another, but still aim for a common goal, oh and by the way dont let a ###### who follows the eagles, and can't find enough decent dialogue on his own forum wind you all up. Dave S, I saw you briefly at the end of the GF, you took the defeat, philosophically and like the man you are, don't let people get you embroilled in something that you are not. Dave R, you are a very genial man, whom I've had the very great honour of soending a short time in your company. Robin you know how close we will remain, and Chris I have no truck with you and we did find common ground away from the keyboard. I hope you can all find some compromise, Carl, what you said to me at last years grand final meant the world but for me it's enough for now. Hope to see you all in the future, I'll not say the Super League, cos if I'm honest, i'm not that bothered about that either, but Viva Featherstone Rovers, the fans, the History and moreover the future.

Actually, he said they were drunk which is very different. The implication was clear.

I didn't "drag Hillsborough into the debate". I dragged the Sun's reporting of it into the debate. Again - very different.

Not really Griff, there was absoluteley no need to mention Hillsborough in this thread. Thanks a lot !

Andrew i couldn't agree more with regard to this forum. There are too many people who are unable to accept the fact that their views are not ALWAYS right and that other people have differing views. Like you i'm sick of it and will no longer be using it. As Robin says Facebook is now a more vibrant place for all things FEV.

Finally a message to the moderators. This topic should have been closed the minute Hilsborough was introduced. 96 people lost their lives in that tragedy

and you continued to let posters argue over who said what and to who. Disrespecful and disgraceful.

I completely disagree with you on this one Robin. The forum is and always will be a place of great diversity and yes it does occasionally spill over into personnal assasination but that is the nature of the beast.As for you Robin you are far too erudite and productive to limit yourself to a facebook site that i find totally boring in its repetitiveness and almost verging on the psycophantic.

Andrew, firstly i hope you're wrong about the impending demise of this forum. through it, i have met good people like yourself who i would probably never had the opportunity to speak to. i think the forum and facebook page can run side by side. i do read the comments on facebook but they are generally made by likeminded people, whereas the forum can be more thought provoking, even confrontational. not always a bad thing. i will miss your posts on here, i find you to be a very knowledgeable bloke, about the game in general and fev in particular. i also think that what is going on with the rfl lately goes against your sense of fair play. i hope we bump into each other next season and can have a chat. take care, OR

ey up Paul. Your opinion is how I used to view the forum. Less so these days. Similarly, I used to view Facebook in similar terms to how you describe, but as Facebook now appears to be the preferred social media for all things Fev, and for whatever reason a lot of forum users now prefer FB, this forum has lost some of it's appeal - well, to me at least and FB has improved.

But, as Old Rover has suggested, I'm sure there's room for both and if each continues to be used then fair play.

I would not like this or any forum to close as this would prevent many good people from expressing their opinions. This is what a lot of them are opinions. We all share differing views and thoughts. Many do not have or want access to face book. long may the discussions continue on each.

Looking forward to the start of the new season then we can discuss things over a pint and on the terracing. Yes i know a season has just finished but we must look forward to the future whatever that might be.

I remember this happening once before and it was due to the same person back then.

Hope it gives him a nice warm feeling inside knowing he has wrecked peoples enjoyment of the fora!

Its easy really we know who the 2 main culprits are, just totally ignore anything they post, dont get into any kind of discussion with them. They may just get the message, but they appear very thick skinned to me

I wont be letting the odd person I don't like or agree with put me off using the forum, Not living in Fev you guys are the best source of information on Fev I have and its easy to know which people talk with common sense and passion and the ones that only try and wind people up. We all have a right to our say but some go over the top and spoil it for everyone..

You're welcome.

There was nothing controversial or provocative about the Hillsborough reference at the time it was posted. Others made it so.

Awwwwwww poor you. :(

Your answer is 1 of a man found out who has no rational reply.

As for cyber bullying.... Pleeease, how pathetic. If I have something to say then wether it be online or face to face, I will say it. Its my opinion and mine alone, others may agree. If they do happy days, if not, no big deal.

All that suggy said was that there would have been drunk liverpool fans at the game that day, he didnt imply that they were to blame for the tragic events of that day but other users (you know who you are!) tried twisting what he said to make it sound like he was. Pathetic really and its those users that are ruining this forum.

I think this post just about sums it up, and at that I am closing the thread.
