If you consult any decent dictionary or thesaurus, you'll find that I was quite within my rights to use the word 'demise' as it's a synonym for 'failure' - which describes Bradford's ongoing situation to a tee. I can also point you in the way of thousands of published articles and stories which use the word 'demise' in reference to people, institutions and organisations that are very much still in existence yet suffering troubled times. If you want to restrict your interpretation of words to a legal context only, then fair enough.

Can't wait to watch batley's demise

It's already started as a result of poor recruitment for the season ahead.

Please do 'point me in the way of thousands of published articles and stories...'

Also tell me the meaning of 'ongoing'.

Here's a few for starters - all using the word 'demise' to describe the decline in fortunes of organisations and individuals whom are still very much in existence ;

If you would like me to post a few more to support my point, just ask.

In reference to your other request - which was to provide 'the meaning' of 'ongoing', please see the link below. However, I've got to say I'm a little surprised that an obvious wordsmith like yourself doesn't aleady know what the word in question means? Of course, there is the possiblity that you do know what it means, and that you're simply trying to make another pedantic point?

So you'd like me to post thousands of links on here, when all I really need to support my use of the word 'demise' are a few examples from some recognisable sources?

You said 'I can also point you in the way of thousands of published articles and stories' bit of an exaggeration don't you think!

 

Exaggeration = is a representation of something in an excessive manner.

If you're another who wishes to be pedantic, I can 'point you in the way of thousands of published articles and stories' supporting my use of the word 'demise' simply by recommending that you do a quick Google search.

It can mean either written or verbal communication, but you knew that, of course.

Your fortunate run over the Rams has to come to an end... As all things do

Yes I used the word fortunate

Because in reality it is

you've had a good run Batley and as a "little team" please accept with Grace when your fortunes turn and this incredibly luck streak your on comes to a timely end

The buffers are coming up quickly in the station for the Batley bulldogs unfashionable undesirable uninteresting express ;)

Your next destination

Oblivion ;)

Back in the day

It was called " royal Shaw cross"

It where all dewsbury's finest were born and grew up

Famous nights with the local madhatters

and countless nights of ping pong in the famous boys club... With a cup of bovril

after training,a place with its very own underground that ran from the pit side to the black bridge side

All these places now lost to the chapters of time.

But Shawcrossites...

Never forget their roots,nor the royal blood that flows thru their veins

Happy Chinese new year to you PM - this year it's the year of the horse - everywhere in the world  except Batley, where looking at the squad, it's still the year of the donkey. Don't bother opening your fortune cookie piggy lad - it's as empty as my head, your up and coming season and a politicians promise. ;)

So you attach three articles (one of which couldn't be read as it just threw an advertisement over it), but no story, from the thousands you indicated you could offer. So I get the picture, but cannot agree it fits in the Bradford situation.

I'm no wordsmith or grammarian, but do like to consider the use of our language and, yes, I am not clear of the meaning of the American word 'ongoing'. It does not tell the reader if it means continual or continuous.

I'll be surprised if they get a points deduction with so much at stake this season for the bottom 2 in super league

If relegation ever does happen that is

;)

When it comes to super league,RFL & sky

The combination doesn't ever fill me with confidence

The RFL said last year if I'm not mistaken anybody going into administration would get points deducted,6pts super duper league,championship & championship1 clubs 9pts

 

Under the new policy document the penalty for an Insolvency Event (administration) is supposed to be getting increased to 12 points for SL clubs and 18 points for Championship clubs.
