Well done,  Fev. You were great and we were really really poor.

 

Indeed. Fev fully worth the win. We were lucky to get 4. No really.  Fev must have half an eye on a great season now.  Playing some really nice stuff.

In other news... more racist chanting towards us from their delightful fans. 


Forever in our shadow, forever on your mind.

I was at the game but didn't hear anything, can you shed some light on who was at the receiving end and the nature of the abuse?

Yes. Second half. Fev fans chanting and pointing at the Bulls fans on the open terrace...

Your father is a P**i

Your mother is a slag

on more than one occasion.

Unacceptable. Was it reported at the time?

I was at the Railway end opposite where the majority of Bradford fans were second half so that's why I didn't hear anything. Totally unacceptable behaviour. We do appear to have a minority of idiots who are tarnishing our name at present. I make no excuses for them and wish that our club was more pro active in dealing with them in an appropriate way.

Who knows.  There were plenty of stewards standing around hearing it and taking no action.  I take the view that it’s acceptable and par for the course in that part of the world. Shame, but there you go.

What I will add is that in the second half when the majority of the Fev fans switched end from the Post Office Road end to the Railway end a good few of the Bradford fans (the lads with the drum) remained in the Railway end and supported their team throughout. The banter was good, the singing was loud, yes there were a few sweary words but nothing too distasteful, mainly aimed at Mr Chisholm for some strange reason. They even mocked their own fans who started to leave early! That's how it should be, fans mixing, sharing the banter without crossing the line. Please don't tar all Fev fans with the same brush as our Neanderthal element.

That's pretty much my view, as likewise I didn't hear anything from the Railway end in the 2nd half.

Fair doos, all fans are different.  But it’s becoming a recurring theme.

I’m sure the club will recognise it and take exactly the same action as Wakefield did.

Well i can assure you it isn't acceptable in this part of the world. No need for it and please don't tar us all with the same brush.

The Club should identify them and ban them from the ground.

Full time V Part time.. Do you actually understand that or just ignorant to the fact?

Although Summer Bash beating a full time squad has probably taken its toll.

Weekend started badly when Fly Be decided to reduce the size of plane leaving 4 leigh players at the airport - leigh coaches and non playing offered to swap but not allowed to, so 4 spent all day flying to different airports to get to the team digs in the early hours. Leigh did look jaded, and failed to take advantage of an even first half by not scoring points when in good position to do so. TO started to bust us down the middle and got a great roll on. Fantastic ###### up with the TO fans before and after the game for the 300 or so Leythers in attendance.

Actually, it's 55 Home wins, 40 Away, 1 Draw, Plus 7 Bash = 103.

Check the championship table, add all the games played together, then divide by 2, to give total games played.

Pretty embarrassing wasn't it? I was sat a few rows in front of them cringing.

Rest assured it was a small minority.  Disappointed the stewards did nothing.

I've made my feelings known to the club.  It's totally unacceptable. It won't be the 20 or so morons paying the fine when The RFL are forced to act.

Dunno is the short answer to that. Someone must have said something as there was the usual RFL announcement over the PA about 'respecting everyone', though even that didn't happen until the last couple of minutes of the game. It's a shame really. We got stuffed, which was what we deserved, to be honest but no-one should have to listen to racist rubbish like that in 2019, I'm sorry but it's just unacceptable.

I agree. The "rugby league is a family game" is played nearly every game at some point, so being so late in the game seemed fairly arbitrary at the time. No idea whether it was this or something else that triggered it however.
