[quote="rednwhite"]my heart goes out to the fans of Blackpool i had a massive soft spot for the club , the town , the people, do had great results under martin crompton
i wish the town and its people well, I've got to agree that the same wont happen to crusaders and im disgusted with the rfl over this. hope somehow there will be a Blackpool team back in the league in the future good luck my thoughts and prays are with you all x

hull kr It seems to be the general feeling from rugby league fans that the RFL will let the crusaders do what they want, how can a club that just entered adminstration be signing a new coach and players at the same time???? :DRUNK:

It's the end. I think it's quite clear that the RFL don't see a semi pro club in Blackpool as a viable proposition.

You should all do the rounds next season going to various games as a group. Keep the name of Blackpool in the foreground, wear your shirts, stand behind the sticks at Sky games with a big flag!

I think the supporters club are going to run some trips next season to catch some local games and we also have the amatuer clubs in the blackpool area. Ive got my 14ft x 7ft panthers flag from last season so may be a good idea :IDEA:

Nice idea RB but it's not for me thanks.

Blackpool was my club and when they left town before I tried this but it just isn't the same. You cannot reverse a 35 year love affair with the flick of a switch. My heart has been broken too many times over that period with false dawns and crackpot ideas to just go and look elsewhere.

I'm certainly not alone in feeling this way and this, sadly, is one of a number of reasons why the club just won't get any meaningful backing in the area.

Everyone is deeply cynical and sceptical that each new dawn will bring anything beyond heartbreak. You can't keep dragging yourself up of the canvas for ever to have your hopes raised and then shattered just as quickly when the latest dreamer gets bored with his expensive trainset.

RL is full of crooks, sharks and incompetent idiots at management and board level and I can happily find my fill of them from 9-5, Mon-Fri without having my heart ripped out at weekends as an added bonus on top.

Sometimes you just have to move on. I've plenty of other things in my life that would benefit from some extra time being available to them (not least the wife and kids!!) so that's me done with the game for the forseeable.

Bitter? Yup.

A shame to loose one of the best days out in Championship 1.

Terrible news for the game. I've been a bit preoccupied recently, my mother being ill, and didn't realise the full extent of this situation. I can't believe there'll be no trips to Fylde next year. Being an Eagles fan, we weren't in your division, but me and my mate came over 2 or 3 times a season for a weekend. I agree with the other posters about you keeping together as a band of fans and travelling to matches as a group - you'll be made welcome down at Bramall Lane I can tell you. Keep the faith. :D

Well said , and the whole RFL organisation is rotten from the top down. That tennis loving clown Lewis cares not for the game or he wouldnt be making it such a joke by supporting the welsh experiment whilst letting older clubs struggle and die. Ive had a soft spot for Blackpool since that regal final against us and feel angry, sad, bitter and the rest that your club can be cut adrift while the Crusaders and the Quins go on their annual 'were skint, give us some more money please' trip.

Outrageous decision by the RFL, but i feel you will rise again and prove the tossers wrong

Good luck from Castleford

:CHEERS:
my girlfriend says i'm immature, and it's time we set aside one day a week so we can talk things through as adults.
like THAT'S gonna happen in the middle of conker season!!

totally agree about crusaders one rule super league & one for ch1 clubs !! If any one wants to watch some summer rugby next summer Blackpool Stanley will be running a team this summer if any one fancys playing or just gettinng involed you are more than welcome you can contact me on email conrad.pitman@sky.com .


There was nothing better for me these last few years than going over to Blackpool for the weekend to watch the Sea Eagles on a Saturday and the Panthers on a Sunday although these last couple of years i wasn't able to get over as often as previously due to family commitments but i did get over for the last regular season game against Hunslet, which seems quite poignant now, never thought at the time it would end like this!

I will still be over to watch the Sea Eagles and Stanley over the summer now - not forgetting Scorpions in the winter - but won't be quite the same without a Panthers game to look forward to. :BOOHOO:

I am absolutely gutted about this and i hope something can be salvaged of this in time for 2012 season (too late for 2011) - maybe a team in the RLCN playing at Mechanics ground like Gladiators used to or over the road at Squires Gate!

I agree we have probably seen the last semi-pro RL team in Blackpool - but i live in hope. :PRAY:
