I see that Leigh have signed Alex from HKR. Shame I always liked watching him play in a Dogs shirt! HKR must have thought him not good enough for Superdooper League?

Leigh have now got a group of buisness men running the club.

 

All the clubs debts have been paid off and the budget for the coming season is based on club income ie gate money Lottery money and Leigh Independant Supporters Association.

 

Doubt the club will be bothering you mate.

I did comment at the end of 2012 when he moved to Hull KR, that Alex Brown was simply a money chaser and I have been proved right. He had no allegiance to us after 2010 when he left to go to RU, then he came crawling back the following year and had to accept JK's terms or go nowhere. Then after 1 year he gets the call of SL and drops us like a hot potato. Starts well, drops out, doesn't stay to fight it out and goes on to Leigh as they're the new kids on the block flashing cash. Always said he had no allegiance, watch out Leigh,he screw you as well!!

What a ridiculous post. He hasn't 'screwed' anyone. The guy is a professional (that means its his full-time job) rugby player who left us to try and further his career and earn money from his talent. What did you expect him to do when Hull KR and Sale Sharks - one of Britain's wealthiest RU clubs, came calling? Say "No, I'd rather stay playing part-time in the Championship for Batley and earn far less than you're offering me". What a silly, misguided, irrational diatribe. Have you ever considered that Mr Brown may have a family to provide for, or a mortgage to pay? I note that you haven't posted any disparaging comments about George Flanagan when discussing him either on this or the Featherstone Rovers forum - or Gareth Moore, for that matter. What's the difference, please tell? Do you hold a hatred for Alex Walmsley? Surely you must, as he left us after only one season. Even the now saintly Danny Maun left us in 2005 to 'further' his career. Is he also lacking in 'allegiance'? By the way, are we talking about same Alex Brown who's tries won us our first major trophy in over 80 years?

I cant fathom all this rubbish about slagging players who leave because of more money, have you never left a job for the same reason????

Fair enough. What about players who walk out when still under contract. 1 player went to a different sport after his team had made the play offs, leaving them under staffed and 1 player went to a super league club just as the season started. Is that ok?

Unfortunatly ###### happens, contracts mean nothing and even less in Batleys case as a Batley contract is as Kevin himself says "a handshake"

 

My current job says i have to give 28 days written notice, if someone offered me a 20% rise but i had to start tomorrow i would be off like a shot as would most folk

One of the players in question was handed the provision of a Super League 'get-out' clause as part of the contract he signed with the club, and the other was granted a request to leave before the end of his contract. The club chose to allow him that liberty. Sadly, whilst leaving during a season is not particularly desirable as far as the club and fans are concerned, both were within their rights to depart.

I think the "handshake" contracts at Batley only apply to coaches Gary. I reckon the players' agents would have something to say otherwise.

 

Other than that I agree with you & Terminator entirely - loyalty won't pay the mortgage.

zuehb I welcome your input as a new poster and presume you are the solitary asian fan we have but can you please explain the rationale behind your user picture (local mosque) and foreign text as your signature?

This is a rugby forum which centres around batley and I struggle to understand the requirement of a muslim place of worship being used as your logo nor the urdu/arabic language which could mean owt

Why do you need to know? Is it genuine curiosity? If so, fair enough. Do you ask for explanations of everyone's avatars? I am just curious about your questions?

Not so sure. He was powerful going forward and dangerous in broken field situations, but I always felt he was vulnerable in defence, especially having to turn back to a ball put behind him.

Why?

Yes, I was asking myself the same question. My avatar is the Pepsi logo but no-one has ever challenged that! Unless an avatar is offensive, I don't see the point in questioning it.

Why am I being daft? Surely anyone is entitled to put whatever avatar they want on. How many avatars on here have a direct link to RL? As Chairman says, no one questions him about his, yet it has nothing to do with RL! I just think it is odd that you would question putting a mosque on and his use of Arabic script.

Great, and you are of course entitled to do what you want. far be it from me to question you if you had any image representing any of those on your avatar. Whether they had anything to do with RL is completely irrelevant, as is anyone else's. So why do you feel the need to ask him to justify his avatar just because it is a mosque?
