  1. No wonder Oldham RLFC are struggling for supporters. They drive new supporters away in a discriminatory form in this forum. but everyone is entitled to there say.
  2. Taking sides and ganging up. Not very good Etiquette. Thought this was an Oldham Rugby League forum not a discrimination website.
  3. I haven't broken any forum rules, I don't think so. so I shall continue to post "free speech and all that." I have kept within the Total RL Forum rules. If you don't want a discussion on Rugby League matters then don't look at my posts thanks Mate.
  4. Football Premier League is damaging lower league Clubs. 60 have gone into Administration since Football Premier League inception: Super League is going the same way. Rugby League is on the same trajectory. Support lower clubs, create equal wealth for all clubs.
  5. Well if we have no ground, we won't be for filling the league requirements for matches to be played, unless we use Saddleworth Rangers Ground. I believe that's a good ground with facilities.
  6. They don't make flood lights like they used. Its amazing where our old ground is scattered. Get the OMBC buy & donate the old gas works or Seddon Atkinson's old place. we could get a digger on there and make a pitch, and a car park, gradually building a terracing with the revenue from what the Car park would make. that would do. Start from the bottom and work our way up.
  7. We have a new start in 2023. Rebalance the teams in just two leagues. There 25 teams I believe plus 12 in Super League. You would have The Premier League 1 and The Premier League 2. 18 teams in Premier League 1 19 Teams in Premier League 2 3 teams in each division get promoted and relegated. The bottom teams in League 2 have to play off against the best Amateur teams in the land so they have a chance of playing at pro level. 60% of finances go to Premier League 1 40 % finances go to Premier League 2 There would be more match revenue for every team, plus you could throw in a couple of high quality cup matches in. Bring back the Lancashire & Yorkshire Cup Battles, they were epic. The extra cup matches would generate cash for all clubs and not just a few. The RL needs reform lets do it.

  9. Probably the creditors and other parties, if I am wrong, and you know please correct me ? Yes watching Ganley must of been something else you were lucky, What do you think Oldham should do, to get back to those standards? My short and long term outlook probably doesn't get anywhere near those standards, Perhaps Mr Quinn (Former Chairman of The Original Oldham RLFC - The Roughyeds ) could come out of retirement and help to fix these problems it would be fascinating if he did. As he gave us a team we were thrilled to watch and the use of Boundary Park on a regular basis when Watersheddings had expired its lifetime.
  10. How can 12 Clubs dictate the finances of the whole of the RL. Widnes, Featherstone, Halifax, Bradford Bulls, Oldham Bears, Leigh, all used to be power houses of Rugby League. Look at them now Championship and League One yoyo clubs. This is what power of few do to so many. Reform RL competitions so that they create equal wealth. The Rugby Football League is dictated to by Super League and TV rights. Time to change the equilibrium.
  11. Oldham Council prefer the Football Club over the Rugby League because they think there's more money to be made ! When in fact, if you can tap into Oldham's growth potential of Rugby League over Football then the growth potential of RL wins hands down! It's just that no one has figured it out yet ! I'm not waiting another 24 years for us to be a power again.
  12. No 1 Watersheddings had to be sold because of decades of financial mismanagement, (Not by Mr Quinn). We wouldn't of been in Super League if it wasn't for Mr Quinn. People have very short memory's when Oldham had a successful team they should of re invested in the 50's 60' s 70's and so on. Watersheddings was falling down couldn't afford the repairs. and the club was more than £2,000000 in debt after people taking all the profits (not Mr Quinn) and not re investing in the Club. That's how we got this awful mess in the first place and continue to do so. Off course Oldham RLFC would of survived. One man isn't Oldham RLFC.
