People need to ask themselves this. If were in the top 8 which is where we could and should be would they be on here complaining about Rhinos and Hist. I very much doubt it. In my opinion we have been let down by poor coaching. Barry Eaton and puppet Wainhouse should have been shown the door a long time ago. Nobody dislikes Rhinos more than me but I know full well that the link up his been vital from a financial point of view.We are still paying off our debts but by 2016 it will be all payed off and we will be in a really strong position. A lot of other clubs will go bust paying out silly money to stay up next season when 5 go down. For example one of our targets for next season is now staying put as he is getting a 12k contract plus his wage.I dont even rate him. But how do people think we can compete with that.To say that Hissa is run for peoples ego trips is disgraceful. Do we see people strutting about I dont think so. What we see is people working tirelessly unpaid to take the club forward only to be unfarly slagged off. I will put my hands up and admit I was always sceptical about the Johnson family. How wrong could I be the work that family does is magnificent. I trust in them all the club will die before Rhinos take us over.Come rain or shine I wll be there next season.I sincerely hope that you all are.
Thanks for your reply, im very sorry I don't feel the same as you. I just want the rhinos out of our club once and for all. Apologies I don't see the positives like you do.
As for strutting there stuff as you put it. I sit down at every game due to my age and I'll health. At every away game the family you have mentioned in your post seem to doing just that at every away game, with their usual 17 free tickets they get for family and friends. I've spoken to Ian a few times and to be fair he does do alot (prob more than anyone else at the club) but how do the rest of his hangers on get their free feed and a match ticket? If I've been rightly informed, I've been told it was brought up at a board meeting about hist members getting some of those free tickets (as we do own the club!!) and mr. Johnson didn't want us the rabble turning up and giving the club a bad name. My question is, are the rest of that family members of hist like me and the rest? My point here is we have other volunteers who do alot for the club, shouldn't they be compensated for what they do?
One last question. Do any of the board members take a wage out of the club? If so, that's a disgrace. The fininacial plight we are in and they're taking money from the club they run!
