Batley's turnstile offer

27 posts in this topic

Got a e-mail front the club telling me that if you go to the Batley - Rams game,a paying Rams supporter (adult only),two pounds of that money will go to the Rams,one pound for consessions.What do everything think of the idea,will it get more of our supporters to the game,or will people just think the Batley club won't be getting one penny from me.Got to say it's a interesting idea from the Bulldogs to drum up more people to the game.

I think it's an excellent idea. It might just tip the scales with those who are wavering and the faithful will get some satisfaction from the knowledge that some of their cash will get returned to the Rams.

 

Much as we might view the dogs as our sworn enemies we should also acknowledge that they are innovative in many ways, and deserve better reward from that than they presently get.

I remember the same idea last season, when you lot played London and any Dewsbury (and it applied to a few other clubs) fan who showed his season ticket gave £2 back to the club they support.

With us making 2 pound per person on the gate, where will the rams tunstyles be just so we all know?

 

Hope this attracts more rams fans to the match so please all go through our turnstyle 

 

Lets all get behind the posts we attack and hopefully cheer us on to victory!!

Would had thought they would be a sign above the turnstyle where all Rams fans should go in.They did the same years ago when we played in the play-off game to see who had the most fans on the day,we had the most and the Batley chairman got dumped into a pool of water,happy days !

You forget, one of the advantages of being at the Loverugbyleague.com stadium is that you can still move around the stadium at your wont!

Yes in fact there's always plenty of space at Batley.

Even more so when the Rams have to make the lengthy journey over WR.

All 30 of them.

No arguing about our home crowds, they are poor. But the rams following away from home for recent local derbies has been pitiful.

Nick do you ask which team every one in the ground is supporting?

I probably could with some of our crowds.

But it doesn't take a genius in fairness to work it out Ramite.

It's rare I miss a trip to the mount I see quite a few faces from the south stand. Not everyone wears a Rams shirt or gets involved in the singing and chanting but still goes along and supports Dewsbury.Going by the Dewsbury fans I see at the Mount our support seems no worse than Batleys when at Owl Lane. IIRC the last time the turnstiles were split it was a boxing day game at the Mount which Dewsbury fans won.That said neither team has brilliant support home or away, especially Batley considering the team they currently have. I'd like to see Dewsbury do this and start with upping attendances for all derby games.

I dont know how the numbnut from across the valley can complain about losing £2 if dewsbury fans turn up.

last 2 dewsbury vs batley fixtures at home we run a kal card promotion where batley fans got in free..and the did !!!!

im not going sunday because i aint giving batley £13...hate the ground and dislike most folk there....because of their inability to watch a game of rugby other than just watching their team...servere tunnel vision...

ive lots of friends who are batley fans...and i admire them for their support.

Poor affair Coolie. Batley supporters are no different from any other set of supporters, we all wear specs shaded by our own teams colours. And to say you dislike most folk there. . . . .do you know most folk there?

What? All Batley supporters? What nonsense. And by your own admission no Batley supporters took up the offer, so how does what you say make sense?

if you didnt win as much games poor KN

could save a few quid.

god knows what your gonna do once the huddersfield cup gate money runs out.

the KAL was open to everyone in kirklees

Not all Batley supporters would have a card. I don't and many of my friends do not. All clubs would have their own faction that complains about something. Stop being ridiculous and suggesting that Batley supporters are worse than any others.

So its OK for Batley fans to support Dewsburys daft ideas but you won't support our daft ideas..... typical Dewsbury fan always complaining when they don't get owt for nowt.......

Didnt say you were the worst !!!

once featherstone,widnes,castleford,halifax,leeds,hull & hull kr go bust

only then will you be the worst lol ;)

dont knock what batley are trying to do

its tough times for club,but its also tough times for supporters too.

personally i would have the 2 derby games run as joint promotions to try pack out the grounds

its not just about getting thru the turnstyle

its about getting them to buy a pint,a pie & a halftime ticket.

theres no reason other than poor marketing thats stopping us getting 2000 for a derby game,not too long ago i can remember there been well over 6000 for the combined xmas/new years day battles...think one year batley had 4300.

experiments have to be made..and a level has to be found what people are willing to turn out and watch...would rather have batley season tickets go to our home match for a fiver...and we do the same..cos strait away you would be saving £20 on your season ticket.

something has to be done,thats for sure.
