I have to agree with Goosey. Brogan is a brilliant singer but we are at a rugby match not a ballard concert. The entertainment on Sunday just gone was a bit of a pharse and had Halifax fans laughing at us. I remember the Warrington match where the atmosphere was building up before the game and the Brogan came on and like ive said yes she is a good singer but it killed the Atmosphere. Glad to see that the enterence music was a lot better in Sunday, however when Cougars score a try is there any chance of not just having the sort of music you would have in K2 on a sturday night and have somthing that the fans get can involved in. I know i am going to get alot of disagreements with my comments but sometimes Cougars Things can be done a lot better without spending Mega Bucks.

At the beginning of the season I posted on these very forums about players tunes and gave the cougar fans the chance to put forward their suggestions. Some of the fans suggestions were selected and are used when players score.

I can definitely say that not 1 of the players tunes would ever be played in K2 on any night never mind Saturday night.

When the tunes were selected they were approved by JD and Gary fawcett and also with input from some of the players.

Well i will have to agree to disagree about the tunes been played in K2. Try to watch Super Leauge Sides and look how thier fans react when the team scores and listen to what type of music is playing and how the announcer reacts.

Without wanting the to turn the thread in to a moanfest, when folk pay their money in, they're entitled to their opinion on matters whether it's positive or negative irrespective of whether or not someone is doing something for free or not. For what it's worth I'll endeavour to be constructive when I feel the need to criticise.

From what I've listened to previously, the singers for me aren't to my taste. Generally I prefer singers who don't over sing songs. Also there are certain songs that just shouldn't be covered or messed with, not through lack of effort or talent, just because the originals are just that good, anything by Alisha Keys for example. Let's be honest there's no right or wrong when it comes to musical taste, one man's idea of a classic is another's idea of a horrible racket.

I certainly admire their effort though, I couldn't do it. The singing gene didn't get passed down from my Welsh Dad to me.

I have watched many super league games and none of the super league clubs play specific tunes for players when they score. It's the usual unfortunately you can't please everyone, all we can do is try.

I'm always willing to listen to suggestions and ideas, we do our best with what we have and I just like the performers give up my time for free to work on the pa system and also to keep it in working order.

Please also be aware that on televised games our hands are tied somewhat in what and when we can play things. We are not allowed to play just an intro for the cougars for instance we have to play an intro for both teams and both must come out at the same time.

I for one don't come on here to argue with fans and moan about things, I come on here simply to let fans know what's going on and to get their opinions. If someone has a good idea I listen and act on it.

In the 'old days' of Mick O' each player had his own tune. If a player scores then why can't they select what tune they want to be played?

Dubane does a fantastic job - given the lack of money for match day entertainment. We do very much appreciate his big contribution I'm sure - but as he says it is a bit of a thankless task as everybody has different ideas. It's easy to criticise and ok if constructive - but if there's anybody out there who thinks they could do a better job and would take it on - please put yourself forward (not all at once please).

For my part, I think it's great to have quality singers of any sort performing on the pitch. I just think that they should finish say 15 minutes before the kick off, then get any necessary announcements out of the way. Then have the right sort of continuous build up music over the PA system prior to Cougars coming out to the final countdown mix.

I have no issue with people having an opinion on things in and around the club. However, just because you pay an entry fee, does that mean courtesy or respect goes out of window? Like Stealth says, if you have an opinion try and be constructive. People sometimes forget, support is not just about turning up home and away paying your money, it's also about what people do for the club in other ways. That invariably is voluntary work which is a thankless task at times. People don't do it for appreciation, but when we don't agree with something it would be nice if people would bear that in mind.

As for the music, I have no issue with that and like Dubane has said people were asked at the start of the season.

As for the pre-match entertainment, we all like different things and trying to please all attendees would be a near impossible job. If you don't like it one week maybe people could make suggestions on what they would like to see. Dubane seem's very accommodating.

Keep up the good work Dubane. Your work is appreciated.
