  1. Has anyone had any acknowledgement of joining the 1875 fund? I was led to believe we would be getting some pin badges to cement our positions and lord it over the lesser fans??
  2. Facebook last season... Direct debits this year. Confusing the old timers again #BringBackChequesInTheRaidersBar
  3. Heard that prices have been announced for next year. Adult £17 - Concession £12 Season Tickets Adult £150 (£13/month via standing order) Concession £100 (£9/month via standing order) Season tickets are particularly affordable this year imo. Especially when paid monthly. I guess that's due to the decrease in number of fixtures during 2020. The BOD have asked anyone currently paying last years rates via standing order to consider maintaining that amount. Surplus to be paid into the 1875 fund. I'm sure plenty of people will complain that the gate price hasn't gone down this year but the club still has plenty of the same expenses to cover and the average away following from L1 clubs will be lower than we've had this year. We were cheap for a championship club so I'm happy with the decision.
  4. I'm surprised and impressed that they want to stay. At the beginning of the year I wasn't hopeful that they'd last the season. Being so far from their families etc, I thought homesickness would be a real issue. They've been great ambassadors for the club and seem to have thrown themselves into working with schools and the community. Hope it all works out well for them either way but I think they need some serious recognition for the effort they've put in.
  5. Can't say I think the aftermath and downward spiral that we've suffered over through over the last 8 years was worth the brief moment in the sun.
  6. I'm not doubting you. I was taking the ###### out of your ridiculous negatively. Asking where the points are coming from because we have to play top teams and then casually mentioning that we can turn over top teams on our day.
  7. Well that's good because we've got a few top teams to play. I'd have suggested we took the points from the weaker teams... But I admire your optimism! Keep it up lad!
  8. Batley and Dewsbury have to play each other again yet so they're taking points from each other. You never know, could all come down the the last game of the season against Batley
  9. That sounds like we were struggling with injuries again. Countless times this season we've been unable bring on fresh legs. Plus a few times we've had to play with less than 13 on the pitch. Sounds like this might be the case again.
  10. Dewsburys remaining games Sheffield (A) Halifax (H) Rochdale (A) Featherstone (H) Batley (A) Bradford (H) Toulouse (A) Widnes (H) Barrows remaining games. Leigh Centurions (H) Swinton Lions (A) York City Knights (H) Bradford Bulls (H) Sheffield (A) Toronto Wolfpack (A) Batley Bulldogs (H) We need to win whatever they do plus one more game to bring it to points difference. Uphill task.
  11. Writing the off as a bit of "misjudged banter" is the definition of white priviledge. Of course you're not offended by it. Of course it's not the kind of comment that kind of comment thats going to rattle around in your memory as you think about the people working in your industry. The first comment this man made to somebody was a "joke" about their skin colour. Telling it from the point of view of Swinton being backwards or whatever does not make it better. Argyle might as well have opened the conversation with, "Oh, you're different". It might be tolerated between friends. Nobodys going to tell you what two friends can say / do to each other. It would not be ok in any workplace. I don't imagine it would fly in a Canadian workplace either. It seems like Twitter wasn't the first point of call and he went through the proper channels first. My worry then would be that this has been ignored by officials.

    1895 Cup

    We don't have a kids team. At times this season we've struggled to field a first team. If we have to put out most of our guys, we might as well have a pop at it.

    1895 Cup

    Leigh away on the Wednesday night. Toulouse on the saturday. Following week a must win home game against Dewsbury... Hang on, let me get my Bradford excuses out..... Won't someone think of the player welfare!
  14. It was always going to be a SL ref. Wednesday so they might as well use one of the full time officials they're already paying. Season ticket doesn't cover cup games so I'll be paying on the gate. Don't imagine many others will though. 7:30 on a wednesday and being streamed for free. I don't think there will be much to split. Which is a shame because I think it could be a good game.
  15. Yeah, I don't think we'll ever see Hock pulling on a Barrow shirt. However, in fairness to him, he was injured whilst serving the club. He has a contract and I think most of us would expect to be paid if we were injured at work. I have a feeling that as soon as he's fit, due to being out of the game for the best part of 18 months, he'll want to call it a day. I can sense that the club would then release him from the contract to avoid the hassle.... That would annoy me. We should be ensuring that he upholds his end of the contract when he can.
