Personally I will be cheering on Trinity on Saturday. Sad but true.

The lower we finish in the league the better, for the club to move forward.

It’s strange watching tonight hoping for a result that goes against Wigan’s top 4 points. It’ll be the same tomorrow.
But I’m desperate for this season to finish. Desperate for change at the club.
Desperate for a reason to go back watching the club next year. If Wane and his motley crew are there, I won’t be.

Got some cracking 'supporters' haven't we?

The club is better off without people like you in my opinion. If you can't support them through bad times, you have no claim on being a supporter through the good times.

The club is already 2k lighter on support over the last 3yrs so I suppose another one won't matter.......will it?
People are tired of what is going on at the club and can you blame them? You pay your money and you takes your choice, I will continue to support them and always will do however for the 1st time in 36yrs i won't be renewing my season ticket, I will pick and choose my games just as the club quite clearly do, but no doubt i will get a call from Kris Radlinski again, stating he understood stands my concerns and things are changing at the club and they want to make the fans feel part of everything that goes on, but i'm sorry Kris you fooled me last time....it won't happen again.

Comments like this always make me laugh. We aren't fans allowed to voice their opinions when their team is playing poorly? They are the ones putting the money in pockets of players, and if players aren't performing fans have every right to say they aren't happy and make the decision not to attend games. Doesn't make you any less of a fan in my eyes just because you don't walk through the turnstile every week no matter how well the team is or isn't playing. Watching sport is becoming an expensive day out these days in this country, especially if you have a family, and if they are having to fork out £80-100 a week for a day out to the rugby, I for one would be expecting something worthwhile back for that money.

We aren't though, are we? We are paying the club for a rugby game, and we get a rugby games in return, it's a fair exchange. I don't get this sense of entitlement, as though the players owe us something for that. Especially when some fans clearly aren't willing to support the players during a bit of adversity, why should the players feel indebted to them?

The shareholders, they are the ones who have actually invested in the club. If I don't go to the game on Saturday, Frank Paul Nu'uausala won't lose a penny (sadly!). I agree that you pay your money and take your choice, and that it may indirectly influence the club's actions, but that's as far as I'd go with it. The players don't owe me anything just because I've paid to watch them over the years, and you aren't a supporter if you ever want your team to lose, just a spectator.

Give it a rest.
We’re all entitled to an opinion.

I love the club. But I have more in my life than Wigan Rugby. Therefore when it’s utter turgid (not for a week or two but for almost 3 years) then there’s plenty of other things to spend my hard earned on.
