Don't be suprised if other clubs follow our lead on this, football have been doing it for over 10 years, and attendances have never been higher, so is this discrimination? No and does it work in football Yes? Maybe it's time we moved with the times.

It's simple BH. You're club has moved in one direction that charges fans of diiferent visitors to Hunslet different prices. Some fans of rovers are offended by and and will choose not to visit Hunslet. Your club will then evaluate if that policy has been a good one and either continue with that policy or drop it. It bears no relevance what Fev charge as all teams will be tcharged the same. You will choose if you want to visit Rovers at that price.

It is about personal choices. I really don't understand what all the fuss is about.

C'est la vie.

I have a mate who is featherstone supporter who does not always go to the away games,i would of considered using one of the bring a mate for a tenner offer to entice him to come. However considering the reactions of some of the fans I would fear for his safety. He would never be allowed to set foot in Featherstone again.

i do not want to get into the rights and wrongs of what they charge for admision to Hunslet. the club is now run by Hunslet Independent Supporters Assiciation. This is the first season in charge.Quite sure that they will learn a lot from the venture. What interesting is that it is the fans who are running the club when nobody else would keep the club going. Is is possible that Hunslet would have gone the same way as Blackpool and Huyton if thier own fans had not stepped in to save the club

everyone is free to do what they like, including those who choose not to go. i like going to hunslet, but this season i am giving it a miss, i hope those that do go enjoy it. as Robin says, it's all about personal choice. no big deal

Well said, oldrover!!

I'm sure the Rovers' players will be chuffed to have your support in absentia. :)

Isn't this more about charging less for clubs who don't bring much support (to make it more attractive and increase numbers) rather than charging more for those who bring plenty?

In part - but I'd be setting my cap at more home fans, rather than targetting away fans who are likely to come only once a season. ;)

are you saying that those who bring plenty wouldn't bring more if they were charged less?

I suspect there's more chance of Hunslet improving their attendance figures by adding numbers across several matches rather than the couple that are are already well attended.

To be honest this is about trying to attract the 1000 plus stataway Hunslet supporters and floating supporters in south leeds to maybe attend a game in 2013, we have reduced prices in 9 league games to do this but were not a charity, we're a business and it would have been business suiced to drop our prices for every game, especially in the financial climate, and especially when your putting yours up by £2, hopefully the day will come when your in super league, and it would be interesting to see you reaction when you charge £25 or the rhinos and then do a special offer for supporters at £20 for the visit of catalans!

Some people need to get a grip. Hunslet a prices are the same as last year and will cost £16. To watch the same fixture at fev if you want to park at the ground will be £20 Batley last year let fev fans in for £10 if they turned up early I didn't see us complaining then Bring a friend for a tenner should the person who paid £16 complain because he couldn't pay £10 like his mate All clubs do different things at least Hunslet have been up front with this so everyone including there season ticket holders know

Whether it works or not we will have to see

It's no wonder the sport of rugby league is a million miles away from every other sport in every aspect, when an inavative idea that has been implemented in football for the last ten years, is undermined, ridiculed and condemned by the shortsightedness opinions that continue to hold our sport back. We will never move forward as a sport :(

Thas reight there owd lad. If it has been implemented in soccer for the past ten years, where have we been all this time?.

I am not going to be petty, regressive or bury my head in the sand. I am simply not supporting the scheme. Hope that their decision does not come back to bite them.

Maybe I'd have more sympathy for the Fev viewpoint if they weren't charging the highest prices in the division. :dry:

and who's the next highest? oh aye, hunslet. (for some of us). some of us have less disposable income now, especially since our season tickets have gone up. i always try and make it to 4 away games every season, these being, hunslet, dewsbury, batley and york. this season i will not be going to hunslet. if that puts them into administration i'm sorry. just try and bear in mind some people have to count the pennies.

Don't see you're problem macca. Some people are exercising a choice based on a club policy decision. That's all. If it's a wrong choice , c'est la vie. If it bores you, don't respond.
