Fixtures!

Post by josie andrews » Sat Jun 08, 2019 11:16 am

Who makes these fixture lists up & what the heck are they on?? πŸ€”
Because they are just fecking crazy!! πŸ€ͺ

We play HKR tomorrow for the first time this season after the first sixteen rounds. We then play them three times in the last thirteen!

No wonder we are losing supporters to our game 😀
Anyone can support a team when it is winning, that takes no courage.
But to stand behind a team, to defend a team when it is down and really needs you,
that takes a lot of courage.

Why do we keep having Sunday fixtures
For the benefit of supporters who live in Cumbria?

Because the same fans shouting for thursday games to end and get more on a sunday, now dont turn up to the sunday games and moan they are on sunday πŸ˜‚
RL's biggest issue is the constant negativity of its own fans.

support verb [ (ENCOURAGE)

"to agree with and give encouragement to someone or something because you want him, her, or it to succeed"

I know you're having a dig at medlocke but the Thursday game was and is a disaster for the sport. Supposedly played on Thursday's to give football Friday nights (as a Friday/Sat/Sun/Mon footballing gimmick) then SKY decide to have football on every night

Result: RL walk-up numbers to matches drop and fans hate the fixture due to work/school etc the next day and having to travel over probably one of the worst motorway networks in the UK - the M62 during work rush hour

Sundays would be fine if season tickets are sold on the basis home games would be played then.

Some on Friday, best fixtures played on Thursday and a smattering on Sunday for some reason (usually football) and no wonder fans complain that the basis they bought season tickets is being ruined by fixture chaos and a ridiculous allowance to never play a home fixture every summer (cramming them in during the early Spring and last month or so of the Summer)
I'm a better fan than you
Because I don't "Boo"!!!

Yes I bloody know transfer fees do not count on the salary cap for those illiterates that need it explaining to them because they assume everyone is as thick as they are :roll:

The problem you have is that Sky have so much power over Super League they will always dictate when the televised games are.

There should however be no Sunday games whilst Wigan Athletics season is over?
