  1. IIRC Batley used to volunteer to play in the Lancashire League.I think they got compensation payments fron the RL towards the extra travelling.Also I think they could also pick their own 3 opponents from the Yorkshire section.Dewsbury,Leeds and Wakefield if memory serves. Obviousely no compensation for us fans going over the hill with Albert Lyles every other week.And that was pre M62.Because of this,at one point in time I could say that I had watched Batley at every ground in the League. OH Happy Days.
  2. Sorry,can't help being old.What are your highlights from pre the last ten years.
  3. I would think the last 25 years of my interest in Batley have far outweighed the previous 30. Main highlights fro the 60's would be CC. WINS AT halifax and Hull K R. Maybe someone could think of highlights pre 1985.
  4. Surely the fact they were playing in a grand final should have been motivation enough.
  5. I think the number quoted may have some other significance.
  6. We should run a vote on here to find out who we should sign.Give the results to Kevin and tell him to sign them.Even then some on here would still moan. I could be wrong but I don't remember any of the "experts " on here screaming for us to sign Gilmore.That did'nt work out too badly did it? Why don't we just leave it to the people who know what they are talking about.
  7. A bigger bonus if you win. If you lose some PT players because of going full time,we might pick some of them up. LOL
  8. I don't agree with some of the conspiracy theories on here. I certainly don't like the way some on the main forum run down Fev as "a village team/no value to SL." ETC.ETC.. If you win on Sunday,and I hope you do,you will fully deserve your chance in SL. Best of luck for Sunday
  9. Genuine question. Are there going to be any problems for a possibly unjabbed part time team playing in France next week. I certainly hope not.
  10. That article was dated 12th August.That's pretty much confirmation for me.I can see where you are coming from though.
  11. Surely that answers the question posed in this thread.
  12. Like many I am scared of heights.Strange thing is the fear has increased s I have grown older.
  13. I remember a thread on here where it was stated that Hull FC pay £700,000 rent.That amount would more than fund L1. Yet some people on here would be happy to lose these clubs because they do not provide any value.
  14. Nothing like having a bit of respect for your older brethren LOL.
  15. Originally it looked a very interesting 3 way battle between Fev,Leigh and TO. Very unfairly Leigh were put into SL.At least Derek seemed to be happy. You want TO to be excluded. To me that gives Fev a pretty big advantage.But you seem to think that's fair. If that is your honest opinion then I am happy to leave it at that. Bye
  16. So you think it would have been right and fair to exclude Toulouse this season. Without Leigh and Toulouse Fev would have been given a free run to SL.Do you think that would have been right and fair.
  17. Do you think it would be right and fair to exclude Toulouse from the league this year.Is that plain enough for you? Can you please explain what my agenda is because I don't know.
  18. Are any of the current squad on 2 year contracts and therefore already signed for next season?
  19. But you don't think it would'nt be right and fair to do that to Toulouse?
  20. Before I buy your bridge,bearing in mind the situation,what in your opinion is the fair and reasonable way to go. I really am interested to hear your insightful opinion.
  21. Do you think it is possible Fev could ease off a bit with the play offs in mind.I don't think they can get 1st and they are nailed on for 2nd.
  22. No.But then again I was'nt replying to you
  23. Definitely outside the top 4.Probably 5 to 8.Alot could depend on the funding allocated.
  24. So you are not that confident to bet unless the odds are good.
