popular or winners.

30 posts in this topic

Okay. its time to pin your colours to the mast. would you rather have Swinton being winners or being popular?

I for one want us to be winners. i like good banter as it adds to the match day vibe. the more people who dislike us the happier i am.

I want a fair and level playing field, im fed up of hearing about young players leaving the sport because they have to compete against f/t players while holding down a f/t job.I just wonder how mills and holland are feeling, they spent all pre-season slogging their guts out, play all the friendlies and then to be dropped for dr players how long will they put up with it before they go ?

If we are successful with the current strategy then the other clubs participating in DR will seek to replicate it as the cost of relegation from the Championship will be disastrous.then the feeder club system will be well and truly established ,and the Championship will be predominantly a Super League reserve competition.As Bigtony says scores of good quality players will be lost to the game and fans will drift away in large numbers as their club slowly but surely loses its identity.I want to be winners but the only winners in the present DR arrangement will be the Super League Clubs.

we,I,the supporters of championship rugby do not dislike Swinton or any other RL club,it's the rules surrounding the twinning malarchy.

But I will not travel to your ground or any other feeder club as i feel it would be wrong to hand my hard earned cash to SL

Bet you still watch SL on Sky though! You would be killing off the Championship and playing into the hands of the RFL.

Campaign against the rule and not the clubs.

A lot will be doing the same I know quite a few Fev fans who won't be traveling away to the so called feeder clubs. I'm not one of them by the way I just won't be attending the away fixture at hunslet but that's to do with their ticket pricing and nothing to do with the DR system even though I'm strongly against it. It's not the fans of these champ clubs that are to blame its the RFL, SL clubs fault mainly.

Guess you should forward your plans for how the game should be run to the RFL so they can ensure youe attendance at all important fixtures.

On that same note mark I wonder how many of these that are saying it all on these forums have actaully written e-mails or letters to the RFL to let them know their feelings? Not many I'll wager!!!!

Mark as long as we get a good home crowd from our fans that's all that matters to me. The money goes back into our club that will do me. If we only take 50 fans to away games( which won't happen by the way) it doesn't matter to Fevs income.

No I bet that they'd just rather vent their spleen Jeremy Kyle style but not do anything concrete.

I wish we could just get back to enjoying the rugby.

Winners thank you.

The other clubs would be doing the same as ours in the same position. End of.

I will support the club for my whole life, that's just what you do. You don't stop supporting the club, maybe the regime of the day but not the club, that's a personal choice and I can't argue against others personal choices in the matter.

Other supporters don't give a monkeys about Swinton Lions so I couldn't care less about their opinions. It shows some level of support for the game as a whole if they only attend home matches.............

Cracking thinking that matey. Lets not help anyone but ourselves, then when all the other clubs in the championship have withered and died we would win every week, guaranteed champions. Then we can pick off all them phoney Champion 1 clubs off too. As the last club standing they would have to allow us into SL and we would do really well. Wouldn't we?

You did make sense but now you've stopped unfortunately!

Well said Mark - but really (although difficult at times) we shouldn't respond to a silly remark like that - this gent needs reminding there's a long way to go and it could also be a very hard season for Workington

Giving due respect to Barnie's thread - we need to be winners and doubt that not many winning teams are popular with opposing supporters so can't really be both- so as long as we stick to the rules (which we are doing) lets try to be winners.

I have not made any posts on the subject of last weeks events as like many others I can see both sides of the debate, but I am a Swinton supporter and shall continue to support my team.

What is the difference between buying a team with a rich racehorse owner money etc or doing it this way. Perhaps people would like us to build a team and have a five year plan and then all the players move on or get signed before we reap the benefits.

I think we're more like bending the rules, mind you with limited funds I can understand why but not condone it, as it means we are nothing more than a warrington A team.

Not thought of it like that Parky, but that is a very good point. The sticking point seems to be the fact we have signed so many Warrington lads. In my view no different than picking them up from seperate clubs. Looking forward to Sunday.

Marshy1 from what i have been able to find out the six lads that you have sighed from warrington it seems that if a club came in to make an offer for any of them it is up to the player either to except the offer or go back to warrington.1 thing they would not disclose was if warrington were making a contribution to there wages .That would after come from the swinton board.????
