Of course you can please yourself

But the point is that when it suits you and others fairness, justice, and that big favourite of yours 'morality' is invoked repeatedly(apparently repetition is ok for some but not others). Yet nobody bats an eyelid when your club is sponsored by a company that specialises in tax avoidance for the rich. Personally I don't care but then again I don't whine about the immorality and unfairness of the way the game is run when the game is run in a way that doesn't confirm a narrow 'entrenched'(your word) parochial self serving view of things.

As for the rest, well that's just fine

If the topic you keep trying derail threads with is important to you, start another thread rather then selfishly spoiling the thread for everyone Chris.

Then that topic can be discussed til your hearts content.

But you said it was the amateur sides that produced the great players. What's different is that amateurs instead of opting to start their careers at Fev, (or their equivalent local side) which in the days when Fev played in the top flght they did before perhaps moving on, they now start at Leeds etc. Robbie Burrow is a prime example, played for Fev Lions, as are the Briscoes. Whiting at Hull and Danny Kirmond did play for Fev but were signed by SL clubs for a song.

Well I agree 100% with you. But you used to develop whole teams of quality Fev players. Times change.

I agree with you 100% players are now mobile so they will go straight to the Superleague.

Sadly we can't turn that clock back.

What stuffed Fev what was not down to one reason but a complex mix of a whole host of reasons. All I want is an equitable opportunity to watch Fev play at the highest level. I may yet get that opportunity. We'll see.

I'd love for you to set out your analysis.

I also believe you should get your chance 2015. It's overdue now.

For me there may be many factors but once players were able to share cars and then buy their own the local club lost it's link to the greatest assets any club has......

Nothing is being 'derailed' my comment was a direct response to yours about not being bothered who your clubs sponsor is.

I'm surprised that someone with your finely honed sense of justice and morality hasn't already raised the topic

I value friendship. If anyone abuses or mistreats a friend of mine I stand up and be counted. If friend of mine is out of order I tell them

Surely it matters a lot in terms of fairness and 'morality'- a term you and others use frequently when talking about rugby league when it suits.

What are your views on tax avoidance by the rich?

Or am I being a ###### in a swimming pool/clown/someone who gets into games for free.

If my friends are being lied about and abused I stand up for them. Do you?

One good thing is if you have stopped going to Rovers at least the gate reciepts wont be effected AND Rovers will still have to pay the same amount in tax

What are your views on people that do voluntary work but still have to declare any benefit in kind to the tax man, even if they dont actually owe him anything. Also if a said person did not declare the benefit in kind would you say that was a kind of tax avoidance

Fev have had three very good seasons. But Stuart Dickens, the man Darryl called in to steady the ship if things got rocky has gone. it remains to be seen if they are still as good without him. If they aren't what then? But what if Fev are? What if they have the money, the record, the ground and jump through all the other hoops to qualify for a franchise? Does that mean that someone already in is to dropped? Why? What if they also fulfil the criteria?

Several SL clubs do not fulfill the criteria, due to money problems their business plans come up short and they can't spend the cap. Fev in, simple

Cut out the personal stuff, please. Don't blame others for it then do it yourself. No names, no pack drill from me. You know who you are.

Locking this now, it's gone on long enough.

I'm sure there'll be another thread on exactly the same topic along shortly. There always is...
