I'm embarrassed at times, but I'll never be ashamed of being an Oldham supporter. It's about expectations, I knew we'd get thrashed. TBH I was expecting an 80+ thrashing so I guess I don't feel as bad

Now ain't the time mate. Still a very good chance of avoiding the bottom two but gonna need the fans behind them. Achieve that and then build to mid table in the seasons ahead. Your players did'nt giv

I think some fans need to have a reality check. The disparity in the Championship in terms of financial clout and thus quality is far greater than the other divisions. As those who attended have said,

I believe you can buy a match pass from featherstone tv.

Featherstone away is now on the Monday night with an 8pm ko, home fans only allowed by the sounds of it, our league not streaming it at this point, hope it's shown somewhere for us roughyeds to be able to watch it 

That's  true the capacity has been  heavily reduced for the Oldham game, the capacity agreed with the local authority is a little over 1600 which  in theory means  only  season ticket holders will be able to attend.

If this is a decision by the RL then it sums up their incompetence. It's not going to be televised by BBC, Sky or Our  League. It's an opportunity to allow the wider public to see a game in a world cup year but the suits are probably too busy looking at applications from New York, Montreal and god knows where else in their misguided belief that development starts abroad.

How can we have an away game we can't attend due to covid protocol I get that, but to not be given the opportunity to see the game defies belief, no issues paying for it. Bet it would be different if it was against bulls or widnes, we will get walloped I know but still want to see it

not be given the opportunity to see the game defies belief, All champs and league games on the sat and sunday are all being televised but the three champs on monday not showing on their schedule

BUT for what it's worth on FEV web site in regards to game

We reviewed the option to broadcast the game in consultation with Oldham.  Owing to other rugby league broadcast arrangements that same evening, we were only able to broadcast the game if we rescheduled to a 6pm kick off.  Both Featherstone and Oldham agreed that as part time clubs, we were'nt able to commit to that kick off time.  The game will therefore not be broadcast but audio commentary will be broadcast via Rovers TV

rfl shoot themselves in the foot drastically at times I feel sorry for the Oldham fans on Monday as I know we probably can’t go Dewsbury away in the derby week after..

Keeping it below 50 will be a result - with no more injuries.

I’d be tempted to cancel, take the 24-0 L and rest some players. It’s not like we can watch the game anyway !

Nothing to do with kick off times  friday sky had cup games leaving our league to pick up the champs unfortunately on monday sky have one SL game and our league four so maybe  there just isn't the capacity for technical reasons to show more than that at the time but having said that rovers tv have the capability to stream the game remember oldham friendly  but aren't allowed to do it so I agree rfl shoot themselves in the foot drastically at times

It's not the RFL but Sky, who own the rights to Championship games, who are preventing the game being aired. The 2 clubs are more to blame than the RFL by agreeing to move the game.

I know that's the case LTS but my point is why didn't RFL say if you don't want them we have the right to offer them to  the clubs who do   i.e Rovers TV

Because the RFL cannot do that, they have sold the rights to show the games and only Sky can give permission.

I know all about that but in the current covid situation though  I thought they could  have come to some sort of agreement to just allow clubs to show their own games that would not impinge on their monopoly of TV rights If they did it would give sky a Blue Peter Badge😀

Interesting reading today about the Featherstone game, it appears THEY changed the fixture date from Sunday so THEY could get spectators into the ground. I'd like to know can a club change a fixture date because it suits them? If that's the case let's make it as awkward as possible when THEY come to us.

No, one team cannot just decide to change the date

Any fixture have to be agreed by both clubs with the RFL

I'm sure I'll think of something funny to say soon.
