Just found out that the Bulls have changed the Kick-off on Sunday to 12:00
from 15:00 so that supporters can go home and watch the Leed/Wigan Game. I
was so pissed off I had to E-mail them. See below.
I have just found out that you have now changed the kick-off time of the
Workington game to 12:00 so that fans will be able to see the Leeds/Wigan
game on TV. How much thought went into this? About 3 seconds. Haven't you
realised that most junior sport - Rugby League, Soccer and RU takes place on
a Sunday morning. How on earth do you expect these kids and their parents
to get to the game when most of these kick-off around 11:00. I know for a
fact that at the club I coach at, Wibsey Juniors RL, over 100 boys will be
playing that morning and most of them, their parents, coaches and family
will not be able to get there for kick-off. You say you are the people
teams but what about the kids don't they count?
Also what thought went to the travelling supporter? I know Workington won't
be bringing a large contingent of supporters but those who are coming will
have to be setting off at the crack of dawn to get here.
I would like to see the Leeds/Wigan game but like many people I have a VCR
so could watch the game later in the day. It now looks like it will be the
only game that I, and everyone else involved in Junior sport, will watch
"live" that day because we won't be able to get to the Bulls game.
Two of the Wibsey Juniors players are ball boys. You may have to get some
replacements for the game!
