More bad publicity for the Warrington club .

We look disgusting at the moment and i'm Genuinely embarrassed to be a Warrington fan right now.
This Dipshit should be banned out right in my eyes, it wasn't something he just said whilst riled up in the heat of the moment. He took his time to go on Twitter and type out a death threat.....on his own twitter account.....with his picture on......Jesus wept.
For me fair enough he's met Hicks and will have apologised etc which takes balls on both sides to meet up like this, but get rid of him please.
I'm sick of these "Fans" at the moment they're literally an absolute disgrace, it shows what pathetic people they are in general and i've had enough.

I Think what he means is although a death threat is horrendous in itself, but if I was to guess I reckon 99.999999% of death threats are a knee jerk statement and are (fortunately) not carried out and are said to cause maximum distress of which I have no doubt they do exactly that, and again fortunately this threat was in the 99.9999999 % bracket and was in all honesty going to be as if he was a professional assassin he would not have made the threat as it would of hindered his chances of carrying it out, this is the internet’s problem these days ,people’s reactions are public in an instant, if he had time for reflection I dare say in 1980 hull fans thought terrible things about Fred Lindop but by the time they sat down and we’re going to pen a letter the feelings had subsided, that and a 1st class stamp would be a waste of 12p.


Well constructed post that mate . And stamps 12 p .....
Guess we had time to reflect our thoughts in those days eh ....

Hull KR have been praised by Super League referee Robert Hicks for their “above and beyond” support after he was the subject of an online death threat.

A Warrington fan made the threat on Twitter following the Wolves’ Challenge Cup quarter-final victory at KCOM Craven Park in May.


Warrington immediately launched an investigation and the police contacted the supporter, while Hull Live has learned that KR arranged for Hicks to be escorted from the stadium and safely onto the motorway.

The club’s proactive approach has not been forgotten by the official as he tweeted: “Hopefully some good comes out of it. Its time for a line in the sand. Personally the support for me & my family was excellent from so many friends. Have to also commend the way people at @TheRFL @WarringtonRLFC & @hullkrofficial handled this was above & beyond.”

Its idiots like this and the limp wristed response thereafter that make me happy i am nearer death than birth..... This world is on a collision course with its demise.....
This f-head should of been banned for life... Instead the wire CEO reckons that claimimg their not the only club with issues is a defence....
JESUS WEPT :WALL: HOW MANY TIMES?????
£20 a ticket and £15 on beer and merchandise.....so an away fan is worth £35. At best, 1,000 is the average away support split across 11 rounds and I am being really generous here, so Toronto, replacing say Wakefield will cost a SL club £35,000.
The minimum turnover of a SL club is £4,000,000 so Toronto instead of Widnes is worth less than 1% of a SL clubs turnover.

There are many valid reasons for and against expansion into America, but "AWAY FANS" isn't one of them. :BEAT:

As a Warrington fan I completely agree. Our name has been dragged through the mud lately and I expect a zero tolerance attitude from the club.

Fair play to Hicks for meeting up with the little parasite, but I can't help but think this has resulted in the meaningless punishment.

That is great response from Hull kr. A shame it was needed but still it's good to see that level of support
We can be bold enough to make a stand and do battle for our views and beliefs. But we must strive to be mature enough not to resort to unnecessary personal attacks upon people with opposing views.

Tbh, most people need an escort back to the M62 in order to leave Hull safely... :wink:
