Batley Players Banned

67 posts in this topic

they tried to cheat the bookies/pundits out of money so surely they tried to influence the game for their own personal gain. why should the club support them?? they've dragged the proud history of batley through the mud. surely that means more than standing by two average players

don,t ever feel sorry for the bookies they are privvy to far more information than joe public ever has. they only scream when they lose. one year there were 5 different ante post favourites for the derby and not one of them ran in the race. the bookies cleared over two million pounds with the gullible punters not even getting a run for their money.

i don't feel sorry for the bookies. cant see what we get out of standing by them, except two average/decent players coming back and turning out for less money than they are currently on,next time.

Incredible! If there are to be no sackings presumably we will be continuing to pay their wages under their current contract of employment for 12 and 6 months despite the fact that they cant play. How are we going to pay for any replacements

You have made a big assumption there. I very much doubt Barley will continue to pay players who do not play. I am not sure that is how we work.

Average!!!!!! JC is the clubs tries in a season record holder, Probably the best wing in the country outside SL and if it wasn't for his previous court appearance would be surely playing Super League now.

 just think if they had slipped there mam or sister a tenner to back them selves to win like others players did we wouldent be here beefing now, its them that were stupid enough to not think what they were doing and their made to sit out for a season,  while some player next week might drop on another player with an elbow third man in cheap shot and get three games. people wanting their heads need to look around as am sure the other lads having a bet on the biggest game in 50 years might just have another shirt on now. they let themselves down and the club but hardly an hanging offence :download:

Whether you rate Faal or not, he's still an experienced Championship centre capable of performing to a competent level that we now have to find cover for. At first glance, I can't see many available, ready-made replacements for him. If we don't bring in at least one permanent signing to replace the two we've lost, we're going to hit trouble at some stage of the season. Jake Normington isn't yet signed up with anyone for 2014, and with the right attitude he'd be a stand-out at this level. Maybe worth a shot? Other than that, I really don't think there's anyone else out there who would meet our requirements. Perhaps it might even be worth giving Ryan Esders a call?

I would assume John Kear and the club will have the replacing of Faal and Campbell covered.These bans had been expected. Campbell may be difficult to replace with the same quality of player because he is a good Championship player and can play two positions(wing and full back). Faal a weak tacking and Injury-prone centre should be easier to replace.

The best situation for us in all of this ,could be the fact that Huddersfield have 3 really top class wingers in McGillvary, Broughton and Murphy. Unless Anderson suddenly has a complete change in tactics and plays one of them on the bench, which I cannot see in all honesty, or one of them gets injured; then one of them will be left collecting splinters in their backside every week.

 

I wouldn't imagine that Hudderfield have any other way of keeping the lad left out match fit; other than DRing him out. So maybe we should ask Johnny Dumbell what the odds are of his replacement will be a Giant? Surely it's not beyond the realms of possibility that we could have any of the 3 turning out for us this year, at least for the big games?

Has the club actually made a statement on the matter? Can't see anything on either website or FB. One or two posters seem to think that the 2 players are to be kept on. It's not often that I would call into doubt the boards' intentions, but here I would have to if the players are retained. Rules are rules, they knew the rules yet decided to flout those laws knowing that they could be caught, and that it would impact on the club in a very important season, just to make extra money. For those who do think that the players are to be kept on and will be costing, I would imagine that this situation will also have been gone into in depth. Having seen the team at Leigh today, it is painfully obvious that our back line is not strong,but to have to now botch up in light of this development will not do us much good. The 2 players should be sacked, if not the rest of the league will assume that Batley condones rule-breaking and cheating. No amount of explanation and ringing of hands will get past that. There must be any number of unattached players at this stage of the season who would suit us and fit into position rather than filling centre with a converted 2nd rower, much as I like Bretherton, but as a 2nd rower. I think we are putting too much pressure on the pack to shine and lead us through the season. AND I see that today Giants DR's are noticeable by their absence, the likes of Mullaley, Johnson and Fairbank all fitted into our team as though they were our own, and Connor, who starred at no.6 against Keighley finds himself on the wing! Surely not inspired thinking. I am left to wonder what the situation is with the likes of Finegan, brought in as a direct replacement for Johnson yet not picked despite there being  no report on an injury etc.
