It's not really worth the effort explaining, some people are just too dimwitted to understand that sport is about a lot more than just shuffling chess pieces around and assuming people will support a team, regardless of what it's called, regardless of where it plays.

Cas and Wakey are completely separate places with completely separate identities. It's not hard to understand why sharing a stadium wouldn't work out.

Remember back that the beginning of the end for Bramley was moving into Headingley.

Over to you Cas. Get your water colours out

In reality, they've had 20 years head start. It was clear they were not getting a new stadium and hence were resigned to making the best of what they had. Not knocking them, they've done an excellent

From my POV, yes. It just smacks a lot... that the club did what it asked and got nowhere, whereas trinity and cas have horrible run down places and in Trinity's case, poor on field performance and fi

When have Wakefield fans attacked the council for not providing a stadium?

Which clubs have built a new stadium without active/proactive support from their LA? (not necessarily financial)

Sharing is more about location and ownership than the principle itself.

Wakefield would not share a stadium in Cas owned by Cas. 

Cas would not share a stadium outside cas  even if it was pretty much central between the two and owned by a district community trust. 

The two clubs couldn't share. Leigh's is the only ground I can think of that received council support despite being the "second facility" however.

If Wakefield MDC had invested in Belle Vue 20/25 years ago, they could be investing in Wheldon road now or for the past 5/10 years or vice versa. That they haven't done either has left both clubs with embarrassing sub par facilities that eventually will be crippling the clubs.

Whilst their near neighbour's showed them how to do it without Council help.

Granted it took Scarborough FC collapsing to do so - which is not usual in any respect.

Since 1985 Featherstone also built the other two Stands and a Clubhouse with Hospitality facilities and Dressing Rooms. So plenty had been done since they acquired the other two Stands from Scarborough FC. The blue and white seats in the two Scarborough Stands used to be in the East Stand at Elland Road, they became available when LUFC built the East Stand hospitality boxes. They couldn't use the seats from Scarborough as they were red.

Once again , no actual money from Wigan council , originally the land was earmarked for the Ski facility that went to Glasshoughton , but eventually decided the location wasn't right ( correct decision )

No, but council support - which up until recently has not been forthcoming from WMDC.

Glasshoughton would be fine.

Its all relative isn't it, and Fev's ground is nice and tidy like Batley's for example.

Again, they have done well, but that comes from a clear focus over all that time: "How can we improve our stadium with buggerall money?"

Cas & Wakey were asking different questions. 

Also, up to 1995, Fev were a relatively successful club. They were unlucky to be cut out. Wakefield had actually surrendered at that point and agreed to the Calder merger.

Yep,  "how can we get a new stadium, with buggerall money by doing buggerall."

Point of order m'lud

Cas were evicted from 2nd bottom to allow Catalans , who had finished bottom and in the relegation position, to stay in SL.

 

They were the lowest placed English team in the league, and were thus relegated.
