  1. still waiting on the RLF to ratify it ,short staffed due to hoildays and cutting their staff to the barebone to save money apparently
  2. if you read the post's ,its not hard to work- out
  3. we might struggle to sign enough players of quality to add the squad ,but things are not that bad ,we have central funding double that of last season ,we have appointed a management committee until we form a new board ,long term we have the same problems has all the other clubs outside super league ,but we will start and finish the new season
  4. people like me ,that buys a season ticket ,pays into pride builder ,lottery ,raffle tickets and have not abused anybody , but i had a difffrent view to other people , that does not make be a bad person . and my conscience is clear
  5. maybe you could answer this one ,why on the thursday evening would the chairman be a radio programme telling everyone what a great opportunity by become Machester Lions ,yet less than 24 hours later he and the board quit , what could of possibly happen in that time ?
  6. there was no guarantees a change of name would of made any diffrence , we have been Swinton for 153 years , if we die ,we die has Swinton , we are in the same boat as all the other teams out-side super league , time will tell
  7. i'm lead to believe the club president as 40% ,the rest between the trust and small shareholders
  8. they can not sell the club ,only their shares because they do not have the majority shares , the headline in the paper is misleading
  9. the only reason swinton lions is the legal name is so they can stay in the championship ,and not start as a new club in league one ,wake up and smell the coffee ,your walking off the cliff with your eyes closed
  10. look what happen to us 90% dont want to be manchester ,and it will cost them at least 50% of its core fan base , but their not listening
  11. spelly was at the ground wearing a black tie , he has said he will give his self time ,before he decided if he will continue watching the lions ,he also recived a gift for going 40 years without missing a swinton first team game home and away
  12. its will be more than 100 supporters ,and the ones that will be staying away are the ones's that buy season tickets , put their hands in their pocket ,pride builder ,lottery ,raffles and replica shirts , the heart beat of any club . yeaterday we had a big city team ( sheffield ) who's been to wembley ,played in super league and have their own ground in their own city ,and turn up with a taxi full of fans , so good luck with Manchester
  13. Hull kingston rovers ,do ok with a long name , what's wrong with Manchester Swinton Lions , in the paper it will simply say Manchester SL, OR Manchster Lions ,but that would please most of the core supporters and every one could move on together , unless there's more to this than meets the eye , its got car crash written all over it , they think they can live with losing one or two hundred from the core support , but that the part of the support that's our most active in terms of going every week plus dipping in their pockets financially when needed
  14. its not gone down very well with a lot of the core support , and most of them are saying sunday will be there last game
