Re: DFC Board very quiet on the Fundraising

I have found our twitter to be strangely quiet in general recently. Other clubs at this level seem to push home games constantly, whereas our twitter account doesn't seem to mention much at all until the day before/day of the game. I appreciate it will be run by volunteers, but considering we have ...

Re: Prediction League

Re: Prediction League

Salford game is up for prediction and confirmed signings have been added to the dropdowns, sorry it's a little late. Will try to get the rest of the season added over the weekend.

Re: Pledge page

There was a problem with the DNS (behind the scenes stuff to do with the domain) that meant some people were being directed to the wrong server. All sorted as of late yesterday morning but, owing to the way the internet works, some will catch the fix before others. Just keep trying, and it should re...

Re: Next seasons playoffs

They would only be single games rather than two legged affairs, so there wouldn't be any extra games:

Current system: 5v2 / 2v5, 4v3 / 3v4 + Final = five games
New system: 4v7, 5v6 + 2v(A), 3v(B) + Final = five games

We have to stop hounding out the ones we do have, as well. As lo says, we need them.

You can appoint a proxy to vote on your behalf by firstly finding someone willing, and then e-mailing the SG to let them know, per the instructions in the e-mail you may or may not have received by now.

Re: Raj Singh

Excellent summary Mikky. I know it's not the same thing but Salford's owners appear to have a 50/50 split between Peter Lim and the class of 92. Perhaps this would be possible for us? Didn't MG confirm at the recent forum that anything less than 51% is not workable? Could be wrong but don't think s...

The alternative was Martin's belief, and not one I necessarily agree with.

Re: I support the Board

It still feels like a stupid rule to me. Asking teams to spend five to six figure sums - at our level - on the possibility they could be promoted is just asking for those clubs to be in financial trouble if they don't win the league and / or fail in the playoffs.
