    Speaking to an old friend who attended a social function last weekend at the Rovers Club He stated that he was very disappointed with the whole arrangement. Said there were about 200 guests and not enough seating provided resulting in many of the visitors having to stand. Also complained about the fact that the microphones were not working resulting in the people at the back of the hall being unable to hear the presentation speeches. Not enough bar staff present resulting in waiting times for drinks to be obtained and finally he complained about the cost of alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks. Being a non drinker, I could not argue this point. Said it would be doubtful that the organisation would return in the future. Just reporting the facts as informed. 

    They not facts just comments from someone, the best process is rather than someone telling and you repeating these comments here they address then direct to the Club they have a Bar Manager and a CEO,someone will have been in charge at the event i'd guess.  If they get fobbed off then have a go elsewhere but I'd say if you're not happy with soemthing do the decent thing raise it with those involved

    Yes I did realise actually ... that's why I put the ? at the end. I just didn't know if you knew the exact time it was there.

    As I have said many times on this forum, the written word is often not the best form of communication. What someone actually means when writing doesn't always convey well to the reader and can be taken the wrong way.

    I looed up the same information as your goodself mine was wiki wotsit thing.  The tone and meaning problem is one of the reasons I don't text that and the keys pads are way too small

    Yes  they did (as per below), although depends how much you mean by "a bit of time" !  ?

    "The RFL moved into permanent headquarters in 1922 at 180 Chapeltown Road, Leeds, where it stayed for 73 years before leaving in 1995 to its current HQ at Red Hall in Leeds, a brick building dating from 1642."

    The headquarters had moved to Chapeltown Road from the offices on Union Street, Oldham which belonged to Joseph Platt, the first secretary of the League.

    I was being ironic, as the thread seemed to leap from Union St to Red Hall and by pass Chapertown Road, I believe the buidling is now a flats conversion.

    Hope Terry doesn't log on.

    Nothing wrong with this topic, the answer, interesting and probably surprising and had it not been asked on here it would have made a very good trivia question whereas the name and club listing was just banal trivia in my opinion

  6. I'm guessing the colour is down to 'Yorkshireness' and print cost implications, I live in a monchrome world and if there's no appropriate emojis lets go inappropriate.  I've tried cutting and pasting and the paste just blurs the screen

  7. How far back will this go! 1921 perhaps are only those that made the first team included do they have to had played a minimum number of games to get on this list, maybe a 'topic' to run and run with a players name and the club name,  oh heck the excitement I can barely contain myself 'til the next one pops up.

  8. That the idea of a forum is for discussion and comment,  the topic is simply a list of names and clubs no doubt other clubs could produce a similiar list of names possibly information would eventually  show the club with the highest player turnover but is of any real value it not really open to debate it's a list.

    I read all the posts many atre interesting, some intriguing some weird and we can all comment along the way just as you have done to mine.
