I have read what StevieB thinks Nicholson & Winner are whilst on a family holiday thanks to my own earned money away from the Club.We put in a poor performance on Friday and out comes very offensive abuse. If the person in question bought a programme he would b wiser on some issues.If he askes me to my face i would answer but that is not an option for him now although still an pption for others. We lose money most games we play so Saints. Cas etc help cover losses. To get to finals you have to win games hence good winning pay which players deserve but gates dont cover. We got no money from GF gate just £30000 which paid shortfall on playoff wins and some debt. We may have shortfalls but we are honest people and we & our wives& partners& family work for nothing. Family members on carpark bars& kitchen working for NOTHING which other club? Thanks we do not want but attacks on pur integrity are unacceptable. John Kear & coaching staff & directors & Iro & indeed the players will work hard to rectify the wrongs of Friday. I can say no more. I do not know StevieB but my wife does so i will leave it to her to make her feelings known!!!

Well said Kevin.  Guess there are bad apples in every barrel and now we know who ours is!  Very happy, and not at all surprised, to see the real fans rushing to support the work of yourself and your colleagues.  I know you don't work for thanks, but be assured that everyone knows what thanks you are due for all your work for our club.

any batley fan with any sense fully appreciates what you and all the staff at batley do Kevin. unfortunately some peoples disappointment turns into resentment and leads them to spout rubbish. keep up the good work and hopefully we will come through a bad spell exactly like last year.

I can guarantee that everyone supporting the board on here has criticised them or asked similar questions in one way or another. I know myself walking round the town and if you talk to fans about Batley the topic of money and where it seems to go comes up 99% of the time then you see so many people on here supporting them. It's laughable to be honest

Really? I have to say that in my 40+ years of supporting the club l have never heard anyone suggesting anything untoward with the current regime. Perhaps l talk to the wrong people.

Out of interest (again) do all of those people you meet go to watch Batley? And do you also think that running a semi-pro RL club is a licence to print money?

from a conversation i had with Coventry Bears chairman last year, he was told by london skolars that they would need 250k a season to be competitive in championship 1 , so as you can see its not a cheap hobby running a semi- professional rugby club

I live and breathe Batley Bulldogs and whilst was devastated on Friday I have not heard one fan question or talk about money the club makes, absolute rubbish that post from commercial fan.

no brown nosing here,but have never heard anyone say owt until last day or so about ££, we know were not loaded and the club do a great job with funds and theirs plenty a folks give up lots a time and put in hard work for us the fans. still means were playing papola thou and i do think the signing should a been looked at more carefull given said $$£ situation, hopfully we can turn it round but fear with these players we will and if we go back to the ways of 5 years back or more were doomed. UP THE DOGS. and dont bother yerself kev fella.

The brown nosing on display here is absolutely ridiculous

 

So anyone choosing to publicly support someone who has been subjected to scurrilous and unfounded defamation is guilty of "brown-nosing"?

 

Interesting to see your offer to guarantee that "everyone supporting the board on here has criticised them or asked similar questions in one way or another".  Don't know what you are offering by way of surety but you would lose it.  So presumptuous to believe that everyone else either thinks like you or is worthy of ridicule.  And so arrogant to think you have the faintest notion of the opinions of complete strangers.

Here's the official TRL line on this subject:  If you wish to complain about financial irregularities of any kind at Batley Bulldogs, be it the club, the people or anything else involved with the club or brand then you have two choices:

 

1.  Go to another forum.

2.  Provide hard proof IN ADVANCE to John Drake via the forum personal messaging system.  Do not post without approval from John.

 

If you choose to do anything else then you run the risk of an immediate and permanent ban.  Be aware that I have a proven history of standing by this type of warning regardless of the poster, his history or who he is in real life.

 

As an aside, on the other side of the point, we do not take it kindly when people hit the report button and start making demands that we ban people for things that are not libellous or otherwise breaching the Terms & Conditions of Use.  We also do not take other veiled threats well and we will be reviewing them during the coming week.  For the avoidance of doubt, no-one at the club has complained to me or prompted this paragraph.

 

I am locking this now and will immediately lock any similar thread that starts it up again, if people persist then I will quickly step into punitive moderation..  If you don't agree with this, talk to John Drake.  If you have a complaint about a moderator, complain to John Drake.
