Rovers making headway

Yes, your stats back up my point well. Ta.

It depends what your point was. If it was that all 3 were successful at the same time for the majority of seasons 60/61 - 76/77 then it doesn't back up your point, if your point is that all 3 had possibly their most successful years during that period then it does back up your point.

The latter, in a very general way.

Rather than driving 15 mile to watch say, Leeds Rhin or Cas or Wakefield, new supporters have an allegiance to Featherstone Rovers because....

Almost there. Now, why do you want to be in SuperLeague? What can you bring to SuperLeague. Make sure that you are not seen as doing this at the expense of other clubs but by bringing lapsed fans and new fans into the game.

I will try to explain from my personal point of view. My wife did not have any time at all for Rovers but since the club has started looking at cheerleading classes plus rugby and dance holiday camps then she now takes a genuine interest and actually has actually sat through 2 games. Now if you can get my wife to change her mind then there must be other people who are a lot more easily swayed. So take my misses has an example, why would she want to travel 15 miles to watch Leeds Rhinos when she has and never will have any desire to watch them.

In short (and I thought I had answered this before) if you get people interested in the club for a variety of reasons then there is a chance they will turn up on match day and pay to watch the first team.

Your last paragraph is superb. Not saying we are but why can't we be seen to be doing things at the expense of other clubs? They have been doing it for years at the expense of us.

Could you finally have the decency to explain why you have brought this little game to a positive thread about Fev Rovers but have not tried that on positive threads about the game in general (the world cup as the example given). Probably me being a typical paranoid flat capper but if you could please explain it might make me less bitter and twiseted over Christmas. :)

I'm not a stats man at all Padge but am I right in thinking there was something like a 12 to 15 year period from 1970s through to the 1980s where Wigan didn't pull off a win at Featherstone? I seem to remember that being the case but would love to know the actual facts when you've time to check them please.

I think Mark has answered your question, Wigan never have liked playing on small pitches, especially at places where they used to move the side-lines in just for Wigan games. :D

Its amazing how many supporters measure their teams success by using Wigan as a benchmark. :D :D

I thoroughly enjoy the cup game v wigan this year! We had a right go at them and the club came across with a massive wad in the credit column on so many levels!

Totally agree robin and that is the dream for any club let alone championship clubs and that's what's missing in our game. I think dreams make RL what it is and hopefully our dream will come true and we will be playing the best week in week out and hopefully upsetting a few big teams along the way.Got to admit I will miss the championship though its a great comp and full of great fans.

Seeing as how we are talking statistics and Fev. Someone mentioned that the three teams Cas, Fev and Trinity could not all be sustained in the area. I remembered a Cup weekend , I am sure it was in the 60's when all three were drawn at home and there were three huge crowds. I thought it might have been when Wigan came to Belle Vue and trinity beat them before a crowd of over 20,000 ( I think they used footage of the crowd in the movie This Sporting life) but I have checked as best I can and cannot find the details of the three ties.

If anyone has any idea what I am talking about I would like to know the details of the three crowds that weekend and the year, as the potential for all three to be successful at the same time was amply demonstrated.

Parksider I would love to know who you support because you criticise and try and be little people on here and their clubs. I've never seen you say a good word about any fan or a club yet.

Not a bad benchmark to use though Padge, the mighty Wigan. It's a fair old record is that.

He's a regular attendee at Headingley now. He should change his user name to Loiner or Rhino or maybe former Leeds 'A' team supporter.

That old myth. Post Office road, maximum width (always used), minimum length. The 'squarest' pitch in the league.

But you're right, there was something generations of Wigan teams didn't like about coming to Fev, that's for sure.
