Hetherington needs to quit, his position is untenable. He has embarrassed this club with his comments, and throwing the teddy out the cot for not getting his way. To be the only top flight club with this stance, shows how out of touch he is with the modern game. Really needs to go hide behind a rock now, and keep his mouth shut. As fans all we can hope is that we as a club, as a result of him, are not alienated by the other clubs.


He probably is out of touch with the modern game.,though only in as far as Leeds is one of the few clubs not losing money hand over fist. Understandable that he wouldn't take the short-term view of his counterparts.

maybe you need to quite this forum your position is untenable, you come on here and think you are the epitome of wisdom on all things RL. but don't no half you think you do. so what if Hetherington made a stand against the other chairmen, quite clearly is was the 3 fat cats who bullied the other chairmen in to their way of thinking as the lesser clubs are so desperate with there poor crowds to lose any sky money. its easy to bully your agenda onto desperate week men, its much harder to make the stand against it.

Shut up you big tart. What a silly post.

The rest of the game have voted this. All the media who have an interest had the same opinion. Hetheringtons position was self interest, and nothing more here.

You might well have had a point had other clubs without self interest backed him, but they didn’t. The whole game has a different view. And there may well have been a couple of clubs bullied, but not with the size of majority. Even the community game voted agains GH View, that tells you all you need to know about your own view.

If GH had have had the games interest he should have backed the changes but with conditions of his own. We should have had a 14 team top league, without loop fixtures, and he could hav3 led that. But anything is an improvement on the ridiculous eights.

i don't support Gh views at all, but i don't support your view that he should quite just for not being rail roaded into into by other club chairman, and has the rest of the clubs at lower level where told accept it or else. he probably was right to make a stand. personally glad to see back of 8's and i actually agree with you 14 teams and not loop fixtures should have been way to go.

What is the structure 14 team SL? If so does that mean the top 6 of middle eights are in?
Your job is to say to yourself on a job interview does the hiring manager likes me or not. If you aren't a particular manager's cup of tea, you haven't failed -- you've dodged a bullet.

We don't have the quality to run 14 teams.

Or 12 teams for that matter. Repeat fixtures are ridiculous though.
